King1,2 1Monash Lung and Sleep, Monash Medical Centre, 2Monash University Macrophage extracellular traps are a newly described entity. This article will concentrate on confocal microscopy methods and how they are visualized in vitro and in vivo from lung samples.
Measuring Respiratory Function in Mice Using Unrestrained Whole-body Plethysmography Rebecca Lim1,2, Marcus J. Zavou1, Phillipa-Louise Milton3, Siow Teng Chan1, Jean L.

Unrestrained whole-body plethysmography, however, provides precise, non-invasive, quantitative analysis of respiratory physiology in animal models. In addition, the technique allows repeated respiratory assessment of mice allowing for longitudinal studies.
