Sample text

After a period of equilibration, the concentration of He in the lungs and the spirometer stabilizes at a new level and the FRC can be calculated as shown in Fig. Alternatively, the FRC can be measured with the subject sitting in a body plethysmograph and attempting to breathe against a closed mouthpiece while the pressures in the mouthpiece and the plethysmograph are recorded (Fig. 7). As the subject breathes in, the gas in the lung expands, which increases lung volume and simultaneously decreases plethysmograph volume with a resultant rise in plethysmograph pressure.
