Brief description The pressures required to breathe place a continuous but varying mechanical strain on airway passages and lung tissue. This mechanical strain may protect the airway from collapsing, however, this protection is deficient in lung diseases such as asthma. This project considers the possibility that abnormal mechanical strain occurring in lung disease predisposes the individual to debilitating and potentially life-threatening airflow obstruction.
