PMID:  1141097     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Static pulmonary and total compliance during expiration was measured in fifteen healthy anesthetized ponies. Mean body weight of the ponies was 140.6 kg and ranged from 83.6 to 211.4 kg. For the fifteen ponies, mean values and SD were: total compliance (Ct), 168.7 plus or minus 47.2 ml/CMH2O, and mean pulmonary compliance (Cl), 368.4 plus or minus 90.3 ml/cmH2O. Both Ct and Cl were significantly dependent on body weight, calculated surface area, height at the withers, and circumference about the chest. Repeatability of compliance measurement from day to day was confirmed by measuring compliance on consecutive days in four ponies.
