They also demonstrated that the static pressure–volume curve of the lung was shifted upward and to the left, so for a given lung volume elastic recoil pressure was lower after thoracentesis (Fig. 2). Therefore, it appears that pleural effusion may alter the lung compliance. Decompression of the lung with reopening of some air spaces and a decrease in the surface tension of the alveolar lining fluid layer due to breathing at higher lung volumes are the most plausible mechanisms that mediate the change in lung compliance.
