A parametric study of various respiratory and structural factors was conducted, which included alveolar wall kinematics, particle size, model orientation, breath-holding, inhalation depth, and size of interalveolar pores.
Besides interalveolar pores, collateral ventilation can also occur via bronchiole-alveolar communications (Lambert's channels), interbronchiolar communications (Martin's channels), and even interlobular respiratory bronchioles, depending on the alveolar location and emphysema severity [3].
