Associations of Functional Residual Capacity with chemical compounds

  • The subjects inhaled, from the functional residual capacity position, a 300-ml gas mixture containing 35% DME, 8% helium, 35% oxygen, and the balance nitrogen; they held their breath for 5 s and then exhaled into a spirometer [20].
  • We found no significant changes in the baseline resistance or in the bronchodilator response to pirbuterol during the course of the study, but there was a significant decrease in the functional residual capacity (FRC) [21].
  • Functional residual capacity fell, depleting lung gas stores of O2 and CO2 [22].
  • The index of response was the provoking concentration of histamine that produced a 30% fall in the maximum expiratory flow at functional residual capacity (PC30), taken from partial forced expiratory flow-volume curves produced in a pressure jacket [23].
  • The axial displacements of the ribs and the changes in airway opening pressure (DeltaP(ao)) were measured in anaesthetized, pancuronium-treated, supine dogs while loads were applied in the cranial direction to individual rib pairs at functional residual capacity (FRC) and after passive inflation to 10 and 20 cm H(2)O transrespiratory pressure [24].
