In addition, no patient had a diffusing capacity of the lung for CO (Dco) of more than 60% predicted.
During the parent trials, small, non-progressive differences in mean changes from baseline in forced expiratory volume in 1 second (FEV1) and carbon monoxide diffusing capacity (DLCO) were observed in the AFREZZA group.
Pulmonary function tests revealed moderate restriction and reduced diffusing capacity.
Pulmonary function tests (PFT) including dynamic lung volume, diffusing capacity of lung for carbon monoxide (DLCO) and DLCO divided by alveolar volume were performed.
Both emphysema and fibrosis, however, reduce diffusing capacity, and in combination, the reduction in diffusing capacity is additive.
1) Apparatus for measuring residual volume and diffusing capacity of the lungs - 1 pc;
A variety of other tests are often helpful in narrowing the differential diagnosis--for example, chest imaging, blood eosinophil measurement, allergy testing, bronchial challenges, diffusing capacity of the lung for carbon monoxide, lung volumes, and elasticity.
Spirometry results, lung volumes, and measures of carbon monoxide diffusing capacity had been normal in 13 of the soldiers, while another 19 had shown only isolated low carbon monoxide diffusing capacity.
