Lung transfer factor for CO at rest in normal children by a steady-state method.

Abstract

Lung transfer for CO (TLCO) was measured at rest in 94 normal children (47 boys and 47 girls) whose ages ranged from 3.5 to 16 years. A steady-state method, using a technique of alveolar sampling based on the equality of the mean expiratory and alveolar respiratory quotients, was employed. Highly significant correlations, statistically different for boys… (More)
