Reference equations for pulmonary diffusing capacity of carbon monoxide and nitric oxide in adult Caucasians

The aim of this study was to determine reference equations for the combined measurement of diffusing capacity of the lung for carbon monoxide (CO) and nitric oxide (NO) (DLCONO). In addition, we

Reference equations for pulmonary diffusing capacity of CO and NO

Objective: The aim of this study was to determine reference equations for the combined measurement of carbon monoxide (CO) and nitric oxide (NO) diffusing capacity (DL,CO,NO). In addition, we wanted

Variability in pulmonary diffusing capacity in heart failure

The Single-Breath Diffusing Capacity of CO and NO in Healthy Children of European Descent

Rationale The diffusing capacity (DL) of the lung can be divided into two components: the diffusing capacity of the alveolar membrane (Dm) and the pulmonary capillary volume (Vc). DL is traditionally

The need for race-specific reference equations for pulmonary diffusing capacity for nitric oxide

Small but important and statistically significant racial differences in DLNO and DLCO in adults are revealed and if these differences are not accounted for, then the risk of falsely diagnosing lung disease increase in blacks when using reference equations for whites.

Lung diffusing capacity for nitric oxide measured by two commercial devices: a randomised crossover comparison in healthy adults

Large discrepancies between commercial devices to measure single-breath diffusing capacity of the lung for nitric oxide in healthy subjects caution against pooling or direct comparison of measurements obtained using different protocols and devices.

Are there sex differences in the capillary blood volume and diffusing capacity response to exercise?

Women demonstrate consistently lower DlCO, Vc, and Dm compared with height-matched men during exercise; however, these differences disappear with correction for lung size.

Effects of increasing carboxyhemoglobin on the single breath carbon monoxide diffusing capacity.

It is concluded that DL(CO)(SB) must be adjusted for both the buildup of CO backpressure and the anemia effect of increasing COHb.

Diurnal variation of the diffusing capacity of the lung: is it real?

It is concluded that there is no diurnal variation in DLCO when adjusted for changes in Hb andCOHb and the measurement of COHb levels and Hb concentrations is important for correct interpretation of both individual and group studies of DLCO and should be performed whenever possible.

Pulmonary Diffusing Capacity for Nitric Oxide During Exercise in Morbid Obesity

The morbidly obese have increased pulmonary diffusion per unit increase in VA compared with nonobese controls which may be due to a lower rise in VA per unit increases in O2 in the obese during exercise.

A small amount of inhaled nitric oxide does not increase lung diffusing capacity

It is suggested that since more than two and three trials will lower pulmonary capillary blood volume and diffusing capacity of the lung for carbon monoxide, respectively, the average value of only two properly performed trials is suggested.

Adjustment of DLCO for varying COHb, and alveolar PO2 using a theoretical adjustment equation.

Increased carbon monoxide clearance during exercise in humans.

The combination of mild exercise, hyperventilation, and normobaric hyperoxia (100% oxygen inhalation) may be considered the "triple therapy" for CO elimination in some patients.

Effect of carboxyhemoglobin on the single breath diffusing capacity: derivation of an empirical correction factor.

The effect on measured DLco of different blood concentrations of COHb produced by breathing CO was studied in 19 healthy nonsmoking subjects and the DLco was found to be spuriously reduced by approximately 1% of the observed baseline value for each percent increase in bloodCOHb saturation.
