We propose to model the lungs as a viscoelastic deformable porous medium with a hysteretic pressure–volume relationship described by the Preisach operator. Breathing is represented as an isothermal time-periodic process with gas exchange between the interior and exterior of the body. The main result consists in proving the existence of a periodic solution under an arbitrary periodic forcing in suitable function spaces.
