A Modified Rebreathing Technique for Estimating Pulmonary O2 Diffusing Capacity in Man During Exercise
The rebreathing method that has previously been used to determine lung DO2 has been modified for application during exercise. This modification allows the subject to breathe normoxic mixture till the onset of rebreathing. Results in healthy subjects show a threefold increase in DO2 when compared with resting values which conforms with earlier findings.
