Determination of components of the diffusion capacity of the lungs and alveolo-arterial oxygen difference to evaluate oxygen-transfer conditions in the lungs

Abstract

Optimal conditions for de termining components of the diffusion capaci ty of the lungs were invest igated. A combinat ion of this method with de te rmina t ion of the mean a l v e o l o a r t e r i a l oxygen di f ference is suggested. By such combined invest igat ions it is poss ible to identify the d is turbed component of oxygen t r a n s p o r t f r o m the a lveo la r a i r into the blood s t r e a m .
