Abstract:

Development of an apparatus to enable continuous measurement to be made in man of pulmonary capillary blood flow with simultaneous intravascular pressure measurement was continued. A pneumatic flowmeter was built which is capable of continuously recording gas flow from a 1500 litre whole body perspex plethysmograph when a human subject within it inhales nitrous oxide gas. The gas uptake by the subjects lungs is proportional to the pulmonary capillary blood flow. The flowmeter has a linear response from 0 - 200 mlssecond and a frequency response which is uniform to 5 cyclessecond. Author
