Bruce H. Culver, in Clinical Respiratory Medicine (Fourth Edition), Diffusing Capacity Principles and Technique. The diffusing capacity (D l), also called transfer factor, is a measure of the capacity to transfer gas from alveolar spaces into the alveolar capillary process occurs by passive diffusion and is a function of the pressure difference that drives gas, the . Diffusing capacity of the lung (D L) (also known as Transfer factor is another expression for the formerly used diffusing capacity.) measures the transfer of gas from air in the lung, to the red blood cells in lung blood vessels. It is part of a comprehensive series of pulmonary function tests to determine the overall ability of the lung to transport gas into and out of the : D Diffusing capacity can also be important prior to lung surgery as a predictor of how well the surgery will be tolerated. Diffusing capacity may be reduced in a few ways, and doctors usually use the measure along with other pulmonary function tests to diagnose and determine the severity of either restrictive or obstructive lung diseases.

Pulmonary diffusion capacity for carbon monoxide (D LCO) is reduced in HF, 1, 2, 7, 10, 16, 17 which was also confirmed in the current study when compared with the applied reference material. Only limited data have been published on the association between central haemodynamics and pulmonary diffusion capacity in by: 2.

Some might say that the discussion of any resting diffusing capacity is a misnomer because it refers to an unstressed system, which in fact has a much higher capacity for diffusion. Indeed, with vigorous exercise, D LO2 increases from ml/min/mmHg to something close to ml/min/mmHg, which is the "real" capacity for diffusion. There are some reports that pulmonary diffusing capacity is improved in adults with chronic exercise training. Over a 3 year period, DL CO measured at rest improved by 3–25% (1–10 ml min −1 mmHg −1) in two adult male runners along with an improvement in marathon times (Kaufmann & Swenson, ).Cited by: 5.
