Furthermore, ventilation perfusion matching influenced not only by the ventilation gradient we have been discussing, but also by the adaptability of the blood vessels to redistribute flow according to the composition of alveolar gas.
During a forced expiration, lung volume decreases because of the volume of gas expired from the mouth, and also due to compression of alveolar gas by the positive intrathoracic pressure.
Adduction during expiration is not obligatory, as tracheotomy bypasses the larynx with apparently no effect on alveolar gas exchange.
