10] It is now agreed that the normal alveolar membrane causes no appreciable impediment to O2 diffusion from alveoli to blood [45]. Theoretically, diffusion may be influenced by intra-alveolar oedema or exudate, interstitial oedema, exudate or fibrosis, thickening of the alveolar wall, thickening of the capillary membrane or increase of the intracapillary path for O2 due to capillary dilatation. Pulmonary diffusing capacity measures the impediment produced by all the factors involved in transfer of O2 to the .

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. 5] where P1 is resting mouth pressure, P2 is pressure on inspiration, V is FRC and DV is the rise in lung volume on inspiration.
