The aim of the present study was to calculate reference equations for carbon monoxide and nitric oxide transfer, measured in two distinct populations. The transfer factor of the lung for nitric oxide (T(L,NO)) and carbon monoxide (T(L,CO)) were measured in 303 people aged 18-94 yrs. Measurements were similarly made in two distant cities, using the single-breath technique. Capillary lung volume (V(c)) and membrane conductance, the diffusing capacity of the membrane (D(m)), for carbon monoxide (D… CONTINUE READING
