PURPOSE Exhaled carbon monoxide and arterial blood carboxyhemoglobin concentrations increase in inflammatory pulmonary diseases. The present study was undertaken to elucidate whether arteriovenous carboxyhemoglobin (a-vHb-CO) concentration differences are also useful to define the site of inflammation, either in the lung or organs other than the lung. MATERIALS AND METHODS We examined concentrations of carboxyhemoglobin in both arterial and peripheral venous blood and exhaled carbon monoxide… CONTINUE READING
