Real-time gas analysis improves the measurement of single-breath diffusing capacity.

Abstract

The measurement of single-breath diffusing capacity of the lung for carbon monoxide (DLCOsb) has traditionally used slow-responding analyzers that require large sample volumes for gas analysis. In addition, these measurement systems must use only assumed values of washout volume (Vwash) since gases are not measured continuously. More recently, a rapid… (More)
