... key respiratory parameters in living ringed seals ( Pusa hispida ). Three-dimensional models created from computed tomography (CT) images were used to quantify total lung capacity (TLC), respiratory dead space, minimum air volume and total body volume to improve assessment of lung oxygen storage...

... (MAV, N =15), the elastic properties (pressure–volume curves, N =24) of the respiratory system and the total lung capacity (TLC). Our data indicate that mass-specific TLC (sTLC, l kg –1 ) does not differ between species or groups (odontocete vs phocid) and agree with that estimated (TLC est ) from body...
