The non-smoker’s lungs had been proven to swell to full capability earlier than deflating step by step in a normal method; displaying a wholesome elasticity.

The lady within the video remarks:

And you may see, inhalation and expiration, they completely deflate. And they’re proper again to the place they had been earlier than we began.

A PEP valve was then added to those well-functioning lungs, slowing their deflation charge even additional. This is able to permit an individual to extend their oxygen absorption.

Nevertheless, the smoker’s lungs had been a distinct story altogether, showing to be dried out and barely practical as the girl tried to completely inflate them.

It does a bit bit with the PEP however its not fairly as spectacular.

As a result of these lungs are COPD, cancerous lungs, the elastance is gone, so they are going to stretch out however then the recoil of them simply snaps proper again as a result of theres nothing to assist maintain them open.

So you’ll be able to see there how briskly they deflate.
