Imax ) during ?ow limitation, when P n P crit (9) This approach is simple and most useful to characterize pharyngeal collapsibility However, it provides no information about mechanical variables that affect and de?ne the collapsibility of the pharynx Such variables can be as sessed when the ?owlimiting site is viewed as a collapsible tube that in?uences the ?ow that varies with crosssectional area The crosssectional area can be described by a ?tube law? and depends on the transmural pressure and wall compliance Understanding the effects of mechanical and physiological factors on the pharynx requires a concept that integrates ?ow with pharyngeal tube law parameters The present study was designed to assess the effects of mechanical properties of the pharynx on air?ow Applying to the pharynx previously pub lished methods to calculate tubelaw parameters from the pressurearea relationship of collapsible tubes (28), we mea sured in anesthetized patients with obstructive sleep apnea mechanical tubelaw parameters and ?ow, and assessed the relative impact of each mechanical parameter on pharyngeal patency and, therefore, on ?ow limitation and obstruction To assess the expected effects
