could someone please explain why increased static lung compliance is wrong

an_improved_me  Increased compliance indicates an increased ability to maintain a certain volume at lower pressures. In other words, at equilibrium (static), the lung can hold volume at lower pressures. This is the oppisite of what would happen if physiologic levels of surfactant cannot be produced, since elastic recoil goes up (compliance goes down). In this case, certain volumes of fluid would correspond to higher pressures. +
