The gas exchange at rest and during exercise was measured in 50 healthy men, 25 lifelong nonsmokers and 25 smokers, between 20 and 65 years of age. Arterial blood samples were taken and expired air was collected at rest, supine and sitting, and during graded exercise. Prediction formulas for various gas exchange variables were obtained by multiple regression. Optimal conditions for gas transfer were present at light exercise. The arterial oxygen tension (PaO2) remained approximately constant… CONTINUE READING
