Measurements of the dead space volume.

Abstract

The "anatomical" dead space is commonly measured by sampling an inert gas (N2) and volume in the exhalation following a large breath of oxygen (VD(F)). It may also be measured from an inert gas washout (VD(O)) that describes both volume and the delivery of VD(O) throughout the expiration. VD(O) is known to increase with age and is enlarged in some… (More)
