... latter state, evidence suggests that inducible NO synthase attenuates ventricular contractility, mediated by cGMP. Another gas that transduces its signal through cGMP, carbon monoxide, is also likely to play a role in cirrhotic cardiomyopathy, but the nature of the interaction between NO and carbon...

...C. D. R. Borland; Y. Cox 1. To examine the effect of varying oxygen partial pressure ( P ao 2 ) on nitric oxide (DLNO) and carbon monoxide (DLCO) diffusing capacity (transfer factor), 10 subjects performed combined DLCO/DLNO measurements with the inspired mixture made up with three different oxygen...

...Andrew J. T. Kirkham; Andrew R. Guyatt; Gordon Cumming 1. We have compared rebreathing, breath-hold and mean alveolar methods of measuring alveolar carbon monoxide (CO), at levels similar to those found in smokers, as a preliminary to using them as indirect measures of carboxyhaemoglobin levels. In...

...Andrew R. Guyatt; Andrew J. T. Kirkham; Derek C. Mariner; Gordon Cumming 1. We measured alveolar carbon monoxide (CO) after a 20 s breath-holding period and carboxyhaemoglobin both before and after smoking a cigarette on 500 occasions (101 individuals). The two measurements were closely correlated...

...G. Woodman; D. M. Wintoniuk; R. G. Taylor; S. W. Clarke 1. Fifteen asymptomatic habitual smokers each smoked one of their usual cigarettes, not having smoked for 2 h. End-expired carbon monoxide concentration (EECO) was measured with an Ecolyzer 2000 series analyser before smoking (pre-S value), 1...

The inhaled smoke percentage (total inhaled smoke volume/total puff volume) averaged 46% to 85% in different subjects. 4. Neither the mean...

...A. P. Greening; J. M. B. Hughes 1. Serial estimations of the diffusing capacity for carbon monoxide, with a standard single-breath technique, were used to assist the monitoring of disease activity in patients at risk from intrapulmonary haemorrhage. 2. A reversible rise in diffusing capacity for...

For all sixty the mean increase in carboxyhaemoglobin (COHb) was 4·5%. Patients with emphysema showed a significantly smaller increase than did the other two...
