Methods that recover a continuous distribution of specific ventilation (ventilation-to-volume ratio, VA/V) from the multibreath N2 washout curve theoretically can resolve up to four modes of ventilation and reveal the major characteristics of the underlying distribution if experimental error is absent. This paper quantitatively assesses the effects of experimental error on resolution. The washout curves from five typical distributions were studied using linear programming and Monte Carlo… CONTINUE READING
