transrespiratory pressure

trans·res·pir·a·tor·y pres·sure

(trans-res'pir-ă-tōr-ē presh'ŭr)
The total pressure difference across the airways, lungs, and chest wall; the difference between the pressure at the airway opening (the mouth) and the pressure on the body surface (i.e., pressure at the airway opening - pressure at the body surface; equivalent to transairway pressure + transpulmonary pressure + transmural pressure).

The response to this signal is called the respiratory impedance, which is the frequency-dependent relationship between transrespiratory pressure and flow.
Immediately following LMS baseline assessment (average of 5 min), the piglet was connected to the IOS system for baseline oscillatory measurements, and testing was performed as soon as the transrespiratory pressure returned to 10cm[H.sub.2]O as described below.
