However, these measurements are relatively insensitive to changes in peripheral airway caliber. More complicated measures of caliber include airway resistance (RL) and dynamic lung compliance (Cdyn). Airway resistance is thought to measure the caliber of the larger airways, such as the bronchi and bronchioles. Dynamic lung compliance measures the elasticity of the peripheral airways and is given as the change in volume of the lungs for a given change in pressure distending the alveoli. , requiring the placement of an intraesophageal balloon for intrathoracic pressure measurements.

The most notable are those of Findeisen [80], Landahl [53,81], and Weibel [1]. Rohrer [82] measured the diameter and length of the elements of the bronchial tree and constructed a dimensional model on which he based his reasoning on flow resistance in the human airways. Findeisen was the first to examine the problem of respiratory deposition of aerosols in physical – mathematical terms. After dividing the airways into nine successive sections, starting with the trachea, he assumed a constant rate of respiration ðfrequency ¼ 15 breaths=min; tidal volume ¼ 200 mLÞ from which the air velocities and times of air passage through successive zones were calculated.

Repetitive or continued activation of b2-adrenoceptors can lead to tolerance, wherein the extent of bronchodilation or inhibition of bronchoconstriction decreases with increased use of b2-adrenoceptor agonist. This issue is considered to be more problematic with the longer-acting agents [32]. The evolution of b-adrenoceptor agonists as bronchodilators demonstrates important concepts in drug development. The synthesis of drugs selective for adrenoceptors that mediate airway smooth muscle relaxation served to diminish the side effects associated with their administration.
