Airway resistance, tissue damping and tissue elastance at P
= 0 cmH
0 in two week old male and female C57BL/6 offspring exposed in utero to drinking water containing 0 (control), 10 or 100μg/L arsenic (mean ± SD). Tissue damping and tissue elastance were higher in two week old male offspring exposed to 10 or 100μg/L arsenic compared with controls. There was no effect of arsenic, at either dose, on lung mechanics in two week female offspring (* indicates significantly different to controls).
