Indeed, a PPLAT of 35 cmH2O represents the normal peak alveolar pressure necessary to reach TLC.
Therefore, according to the laws of physics, which roughly states that pressures within a connected closed tubular system are basically equal, airway pressure changes in the mouth are equal to alveolar pressure changes ([DELTA]PA).
The mean airway pressure (mPAW) recorded under passive conditions is the only indicator of the mean alveolar pressure.
Higher frequencies will deliver lower tidal volume as well as diminish the degree of alveolar pressure swings.
