conductance

 [kon-duk´tans]
ability to conduct or transmit, as electricity or other energy or material.
airway conductance in studies of respiration, an expression of the amount of air reaching the alveoli per unit of time per unit of pressure, the reciprocal of airway resistance.
social conductance interaction appropriate to one's environment, making use of manners, respect for personal space, eye contact, gestures, active listening, and self expression; a performance component of occupational therapy.

con·duc·tance (G),

(kon-dŭk'tants),
1. A measure of conductivity; the ratio of the current flowing through a conductor to the difference in potential between the ends of the conductor; the conductance of a circuit is the reciprocal of its resistance.
2. The ease with which a fluid or gas enters and flows through a conduit, air passage, or respiratory tract; the flow per unit pressure difference.

conductance

/con·duc·tance/ (kon-duk´tans) the capacity for conducting or ability to convey. Symbol G.
airway conductance  the reciprocal of airway resistance; the airflow divided by the mouth-to-alveoli pressure difference.

conductance

  1. the measure of the ability of a conductor to carry a current, measured in siemens (S) (reciprocal of the ohm [Ω]).
  2. the ability of heat to flow by conduction across an object under a temperature gradient.

conductance

ability to conduct or transmit, as electricity or other energy or material; in studies of respiration, an expression of the amount of air reaching the alveoli per unit of time per unit of pressure, the reciprocal of resistance.
