How to Calculate Airway Resistance?
Airway Resistance calculator uses Airway Resistance = (Atmospheric Pressure-Alveolar Pressure)/Volumetric Airflow to calculate the Airway Resistance, The Airway Resistance formula is defined as the resistance of the respiratory tract to airflow during inhalation and exhalation. Airway resistance can be measured using plethysmography. Airway Resistance is denoted by R_{AW} symbol.
How to calculate Airway Resistance using this online calculator? To use this online calculator for Airway Resistance, enter Atmospheric Pressure (P_{atm}), Alveolar Pressure (P_{A}) & Volumetric Airflow (v̇) and hit the calculate button. Here is how the Airway Resistance calculation can be explained with given input values -> 1.003E+10 = (101325-980.665)/1E-05.
