An infinite number of possible combinations of tidal volume and breathing, as well as pattern of airflow, can achieve the alveolar ventilation required for normal gas exchange. Individuals appear to select one particular pattern. This paper summaries our work relating to differences in the pattern of breathing between individuals when at rest and discusses the possible determinants of such individuality.
