The program "Diffusion Rebreathing" allows the determination of the diffusion capacity of the lungs (DLCO) according to the REBREATHING method.
In order to be able to measure even seriously distribution disordered patients, oxygen is supplied in the REBREATHING phase and the CO2 in the breathing gas is absorbed.
With starting the measurement program, the REBREATHING bag is emptied, flushed with O2 and a zero adjustment of the He gas analyzer is performed.
