  • The pulmonary diffusing capacity is related to the quantitative design characteristics of the pulmonary gas exchanger. The current model for estimating DLO2 from morphometric data breaks the diffusion path for O2 into four steps, three of which represent the membrane part of DLO2. A critique of this model on the basis of newer evidence leads to a modification of the model where the path from the alveolar surface to the erythrocyte membrane is considered as a single step. The structural… CONTINUE READING
