Pressure-volume curve during inflation to P
= 20 cmH
O and exhalation to functional residual capacity plotted against TGV in male and female two week old C57BL/6 offspring exposed in utero to drinking water containing 0 (control) or 100μg/L arsenic (mean ± SD). The maximum TGV reached during inflation was lower in male offspring exposed to 100μg/L arsenic compared to male controls. There was no effect of 100μg/L arsenic on maximum TGV in two week female offspring (* indicates significantly different to controls).
