Then, the concentration of carbon monoxide in the exhaled air is measured. The difference in the amount of gas is recognized as the gas diffused from the alveolar-capillary membrane and indicates the pulmonary diffusion capacity. Carbon monoxide diffusion capacity is a very good criterion of the absorption and transfer of carbon monoxide and therefore oxygen.
