Standardization of computation of single-breath transfer factor.

Abstract

The transfer factor (TLCOsb) is currently widely used as a lung function test. Although the test maneuver itself is well described and uniformly approached by most workers, the computation technique varies considerably. Significant changes in the TLCOsb are induced by correcting for: blood hemoglobin concentration [Hb], apparatus and anatomic dead space (VD… (More)
