Interstitial lung disease
Ans: C. Interstitial lung disease
* Pressure-volume loop – Compliance curve.
* Shows decreased slope – Implying decreased compliance (AV/AP).
* Typically seen in restrictive lung diseases & interstitial lung disease.
* Emphysema – Obstructive lung conditions & increases compliance.
