Lung Volumes (Nitrogen Washout, RV, TLC)
Diffusing Lung Capacity (DLCOsb, DLCOib, Membrane Diffusion)
Respiratory Mechanics (MIP/MEP, PO.1
measurement of airway resistance (Rocc)
The surgery is also equipped with:
A blood gas and electrolytes analyzer (i-Stat) for arterial oxygen, carbon dioxide, pH, potassium, sodium measurements.
Overnight oxymetry for sleep apnea screening in adults and children
