Effect of posture on respiration

Post by chen.lie » Sat Mar 18, 2006 11:43 am

Could anyone tell me why F.R.C increases during when moving from the supine position to the standing position please?
If you use any references to answer this question, could you please send them to be as well.

Thank you in advance.
