1. To examine the effect of varying oxygen partial pressure (PAO2) on nitric oxide (DLNO) and carbon monoxide (DLCO) diffusing capacity (transfer factor), 10 subjects performed combined DLCO/DLNO measurements with the inspired mixture made up with three different oxygen concentrations (25%, 18% and 15%) to give PAO2 values of 12-20 kPa. 2. A novel method is(More)
BACKGROUND Unexplained or primary pulmonary hypertension results in an obliteration and obstruction of resistance pulmonary arteries. In these patients gas exchange is impaired and the measurement of gas transfer for carbon monoxide is usually reduced. This has been thought to represent a reduction in pulmonary alveolar capillary blood volume (Vc). A single(More)
OBJECTIVE There is global imperative to reduce the burden of noncommunicable diseases (NCD's). NCD's are the leading cause of death and disability globally. In Australia, 2010, the World Health Organization estimated cancer deaths attributable to NCD's accounted for approximately 29% of all deaths and most are preventable by modifying lifestyle associated(More)
