Medical Definition of Conductance

1. 1. A measure of conductivity; the ratio of the current flowing through a conductor to the difference in potential between the ends of the conductor; the conductance of a circuit is the reciprocal of its resistance. 2. The ease with which a fluid or gas enters and flows through a conduit, air passage, or respiratory tract; the flow per unit pressure difference. (05 Mar 2000)
