Pathophysiological advantages derived from simultaneous measurement of diffusing capacity for carbon monoxide (DLCO) and nitric oxide (DLNO)

Schematic presentation of CO and NO transfer

It has been over 100 years since Marie Krogh developed the method to measure the transfer of carbon monoxide (CO) through the alveolar wall. Since then, the single-breath CO diffusing capacity (DLCO) has become the most clinically

Hemoglobin diseases and their identification

Red blood cells use hemoglobin to carry oxygen from the lungs to the body and to carry carbon dioxide from the body back to the lungs in order to keep all cells alive. Hemoglobin is a big
