One of the mysteries of the English language finally explained.
The pressure of a gas or vapour in its critical state.
- ‘Pharyngeal critical pressure is the pressure below which occlusion and cessation of airflow occurs.’
- ‘Miscibility critical pressure is a sensitive function of the lipids in the monolayer.’
- ‘The current work shows that lipid asymmetry and unsaturation both result in high critical pressures in monolayers.’
- ‘Increases of surface pressure were recorded for different initial lipid surface pressures to determine the critical pressure of insertion of the peptide into lipids.’
- ‘The flow-limited segment of the pressure-flow relationship is used to define the critical pressure as the nasal pressure at which airflow ceases.’
