compliance

(1) in psychology, the extent to which a person follows a prescribed behavioural regimen, such as exercise, see also adherence; (2) with reference to the lungs, the ease of inflation, diminished in chronic obstructive lung disease.

compliance

compliance

patient adherence to a prescribed or suggested treatment regime

compliance,

n 1. in physiological terms, the degree of suppleness of a form.
2. in terms of medical practice, the extent to which a patient implements the prescribed remedy. The term
concordance has recently been suggested to replace
compliance, which has the connotation of forcing the patient to follow the regime.

compliance 

The willingness to strictly follow the instructions given by a clinician. Example: following the cleaning instructions and wearing schedule given after contact lens fitting.

compliance

1. the quality of yielding to pressure or force without disruption, or an expression of the measure of ability to do so, as an expression of the distensibility of an air- or fluid-filled organ, e.g. the lung or urinary bladder, in terms of unit of volume per unit of pressure.
The compliance of the lungs (CL) and thorax (CT) determine the elastic resistance to ventilation. The total compliance of the lungs and thorax (CLT) is given by the formula 1/CLT = 1/CL + 1/CT. CL is measured by determining the intrapleural pressure at different end-inspiratory volumes. A balloon-tipped catheter is used to determine the intrapleural pressure, which is transmitted through the soft wall of the esophagus. CL is usually divided by the functional residual capacity to give the specific compliance. Lung compliance is decreased in congestive heart failure and interstitial lung disease and increased in emphysema. CLT can be measured by determining the change in lung volume for various amounts of pressure difference between the mouth and chest surface using a body plethysmograph.
2. The willingness to follow a prescribed course of treatment or the extent to which owners follow the veterinary advice given.

blood vessel compliance
the ability of each blood vessel to expand, or contract, to best accommodate a particular volume, and a particular hydrostatic pressure of blood depends on the proportional composition, and the distribution, of its content of collagen, elastin, smooth muscle.
