Alveolar dead space

The difference between physiologic dead Space and anatomical dead space; it represents that part of the physiologic dead Space resulting from ventilation of relatively underperfused or nonperfused alveoli; it differs specifically in being placed so as to fill and empty in parallel with functional alveoli, rather than being interposed in the conducting tubes between functional alveoli and the external environment.
