In this lecture Professor Zach Murphy will be teaching you about Compliance and Elasticity. During this lecture we discuss the factors that influence compliance such as surface tension, elasticity of the lungs, the natural flexibility of the surrounding thoracic cage, and surfactant production. We also discusses clinical scenarios when elasticity and compliance is compromised resulting in pathology.
