Estimation of amount of stationary pulmonary blood from carbon monoxide uptake measurements.


A mathematical model of CO uptake from a single alveolus is modified to include stationary pulmonary blood arising from a pulmonary vascular obstruction. From this model an estimator model is developed that produces simultaneous estimations of the diffusing capacity of the lung for CO and the fraction of the pulmonary capillary blood that is stationary. The… (More)
