  • By MIGET, fractional alveolar ventilation and pulmonary perfusion in relation to the V.A/Q. compartments, data of logSDQ̇ and logSDV̇ (the second moments describing global dispersion, i.e. heterogeneity of distribution) were estimated prior to and after MCh infusion. (diva-portal.org)
  • arterial
  • its volume (V D ) is determined by measuring the partial pressure of carbon dioxide in a sample of exhaled gas (PE CO 2 ) and in the arterial blood (Pa CO 2 ) and (with tidal volume of V T ) using the formula V D /V T = (Pa CO 2 −PE CO 2 )/Pa CO 2 . (thefreedictionary.com)
