WiktionaryRate this definition:(0.00 / 0 votes)
An electrical property that is the inverse of capacitance.
A measurement of the tendency of the lung, urinary bladder, gallbladder or other cavity to recoil inwards. Opposite of compliance.
Compliance is the ability of a hollow organ to distend and increase volume with increasing transmural pressure or the tendency of a hollow organ to resist recoil toward its original dimensions on application of a distending or compressing force. It is the reciprocal of "elastance", hence elastance is a measure of the tendency of a hollow organ to recoil toward its original dimensions upon removal of a distending or compressing force.
