Pressure–flow relationship for turbulent flow. move as orderly sheets sliding over each other and the friction between these sheets, which is responsible for the energy loss and pressure drop, is a function of the viscosity of the gas and not its density. So reducing the density of the gas will have no effect on the pressure gradient required to achieve the same flow. Heliox at 70%/30% (helium/oxygen) is about one-fifth of the density of 70%/30% (nitrogen/oxygen), but its viscosity is about the same.

Pt: tissue pressure; Pu: upstream pressure; Pd: downstream pressure; Pc: pressure at site of collapsible segment. 6. This system behaves as a ‘Starling resistor’ and airflow can become limited or completely abolished during spontaneous (‘negative intrathoracic pressure’) breathing as described below. , flow is simply dependent on the difference between upstream pressure, Pu, and downstream pressure, Pd) under certain conditions, and non-ohmic under other circumstances (when flow becomes independent of downstream pressure, yet dependent on transmural pressure at the site of the distensible segment).
