Biological context of Lung Volume Measurements


Associations of Lung Volume Measurements with chemical compounds

  • To assess the relationship between gas trapping and NSBHR, we conducted a retrospective chart review of 500 patients who had undergone pulmonary function testing, including lung volume measurement and methacholine challenge [11].
  • The respiratory response and changes of functional residual lung capacity were measured in the rat after intravenous administration of the drug S 2620 in a dose of 0.4 mg/kg [12].
  • The more efficient absorption of nicotine seen in some children may be related to physiological factors such as lung capacity [13].
  • The minor compounds PE, PI, PS, PA, lysoPC enable DPPC to form surface-active films after application on saline at 37 degrees C. Removal of surfactant decreases the expiratory lung capacity of the isolated rat lung from 49.7 to 12.4% at 4 cmH2O [14].
  • Diffusing lung capacity and cyclosporine in patients with heart transplants [15].

Gene context of Lung Volume Measurements

  • Isolated reduction of carbon monoxide diffusing lung capacity (DCO), usually subclinical, was the most commonly detected functional abnormality in the SLE population, whereas it was absent in the comparison group [16].
  • MEASUREMENTS: Spirometry, lung volumes, diffusion lung capacity for carbon monoxide (DLco) and MVV measured prior to exercise at 3 months (n = 25) then at 3-month intervals up to a maximum of 12 months post-transplantation (n = 18 [12 SLT and 6 DLT]) [17].
  • Comparison of lung volume measurements by single breath helium and multiple breath nitrogen equilibration methods in normal subjects and COPD patients [18].
  • CONCLUSION: In isolated congenital diaphragmatic hernia, fetal lung volume measurement by three-dimensional ultrasound is a potential predictor for pulmonary hypoplasia and postnatal outcome [19].
  • Scores on the As Test did not show significant correlations with body size and lung capacities [20].
