The visceral pleura can be considered to consist of three layers (Figure 1-18): (1) a superficial endopleura, composed of a continuous layer of mesothelial cells overlying a thin network of collagen and elastic fibers; (2) an external elastic lamina, which consists of a layer of collagen and elastic tissue whose thickness varies,93 possibly as a result of differences in pleural stress during the respiratory cycle; and (3) a vascular (interstitial) layer that consists of connective tissue containing lymphatic and blood vessels.

40 Statics of the Respiratory System primarily due to any of the mechanisms mentioned above. 2,47 The V–P relationship of the chest wall seems to undergo only minor changes with anesthesia and paralysis in the supine posture. 2,47 V–P RELATIONSHIPS DURING STATIC MUSCULAR EFFORT ALVEOLAR PRESSURE Figure 2-7 shows the maximum static inspiratory and expiratory pressures exerted for 1 to 2 seconds in the lung at different volumes in the upright posture. The horizontal distance between the outer, solid curves, and the relaxation curve gives the net pressure exerted by the contraction of the respiratory muscles, represented by the broken lines.
