Method Abstract: "Eight normal human lungs obtained from patients dying from causes not related to the lung were subjected to morphometric analysis to determine the number of cells in the alveolar region and their mean volume and surface characteristics."
Comments P.334 middle column 2nd paragraph: "The results of morphometric determination of cell characteristics for normal human lung is given in table 2. The fixed lung volume of 4,300cm^3 is approximately 70% of the gas dilution of total lung capacity that can be estimated from the body weight. Thus the cell characteristics and mean cell surface areas are determined on lungs fixed at a volume closely approximating the normal tidal volume range." See notes beneath table
