12.Pathophysiological and clinical implication of diffusing capacity for CO (DLco) and Krogh factor (Kco)
13.Basic perspective of simultaneous measurement of DLCO and DLNO
14.Reference equations for simultaneously measured DLCO and DLNO
15.Differential diagnosis based on newly developed indicator of DLNO/DLCO
16.Clinical significance of simultaneous measurements of DLCO and DLNO: Can DLCO and DLNO differentiate various kinds of lung diseases?.

This book elucidates the morphological backgrounds of various functional parameters of the human respiratory system, including the respiratory control system, dynamics of the upper and lower airways, gas transport and mixing in the lower airways, gas exchange in the acinus, and gas transfer through the alveolar wall. Presenting the latest findings on the interrelationships between morphology and physiology in the respiratory system, the book’s goal is to provide a foundation for further exploring structure-function relationships in various respiratory systems, and to improve both the quality of basic science, and that of clinical medicine targeting the human respiratory system.Edited and written by internationally recognized experts, Structure-Function Relationships in Various Respiratory Systems offers a valuable asset for all physicians and researchers engaging in clinical, physiological, or morphological work in the field of respiration. Moreover, it provides a practical guide for physicians, helping them make more precise pathophysiological decisions concerning patients with various types of lung disease, and will be of interest to respiratory physiologists and respiratory morphologists.
