NOTICE: Administration of lung diffusion test mixtures may be hazardous or contraindicated. For use only by, or under supervision of, a qualified healthcare practitioner experienced in the use of lung diffusion test mixtures. 

The lung diffusion test mixtures supplied by Air Liquide Healthcare are used in pulmonary function tests and to calibrate analytical instruments that measure the amount of carbon monoxide diffused through the lungs. Once a patient inhales a test mixture, their exhalation is analyzed to determine how well the lungs have diffused one of the carbon-based gases present.
