Background: We developed a simple method for simulating a rebreathing maneuver to test the accuracy of the apparatus for simultaneous measurement of lung volume, diffusing capacity of the lung for carbon monoxide (DLCO), diffusing capacity of the lung for nitric oxide (DLNO), and pulmonary blood flow (Qc).
