It is evident that patients with large lungs will have higher Gaw than patients with smaller lungs and so to make a fair comparison with patients possessing different sized lungs, the Gaw is divided by the thoracic gas volume (VTG), which is comparable to the patient's FRC, to produce specific airway conductance or SGaw which is simply Gaw corrected for lung volume at FRC.
25], respectively) and specific airway conductance (sGaw) were measured using body plethysmograph (200 Autobox DL, 2130 spirometer, Sensormedics, USA) before and at different time intervals after drug administration (30, 60, 90, 120, 150 and 180 mins).
