The lung allows exchange of gases across the respiratory epithelium through the air sacs.

 

Chemical studies of lung functions are as follows

Blood

  • pH

  • PO2

  • O2 saturation

  • PCO2

  • HCO3

  • Base excess

  • Plasma lactate dehydrogenase

  • Plasma protein

  • Plasma tryglycerides

 

Pleural fluid

  • Protein

  • Lactate dehydrogenase

  • Amylase

  • Triglyceride

  • Glucose

  • Tumor markers

    • CEA

    • CA--125

    • CA-15-3

    • CA-19-9

  • Adenosine deaminase
