Pressure-volume curves and related parameters at baseline. Pressure-volume (PV) loops were generated using a ramp-style pressure-volume maneuver (PVr-P). Mean PV loops are shown for each group, Bleo-fibrosis and PPE-emphysema in (a), LPS-ALI and HDM-asthma in (b), and represented together with the naive control group. Inspiratory capacity (c) was measured using a deep inflation maneuver, and the static compliance (d) was calculated directly from the deflating arm of the PV loop between 3 –7 cmH2O. Both parameters are shown for each individual mouse, along with group means. *** p < 0.001 compared to the naive control group. n = 7 –8 per group
