BACKGROUND For reliable assessment of ventilation inhomogeneity, multiple-breath washout (MBW) systems should be realistically validated. We describe a new lung model for in vitro validation under physiological conditions and the assessment of a new nitrogen (N(2))MBW system. METHODS The N(2)MBW setup indirectly measures the N(2) fraction (F(N2)) from main-stream carbon dioxide (CO(2)) and side-stream oxygen (O(2)) signals: F(N2) = 1-F(O2)-F(CO2)-F(Argon). For in vitro N(2)MBW, a double… CONTINUE READING
