There is no noninvasive method in assessing diffusive function of 
lung in laboratory animals. Recently, I daveloped a procedure 
which is very similar to DLCO in humans. The procedure is very 
simple and noninvasive. The technique will provide the carbon 
monoxide uptake by the animal at certain period of time along 
with ventilation frequency. I run some experiments using mice and 
measured carbon monoxide uptake in normal and anesthetized mice. 
It was observed that anesthetic agent reduces CO uptake 
significantly in anesthetized mice as expected. If you are 
interested about the technique, please e-mail your postal 
address. I will be happy to send you all the information about 
lung function procedure in laboratory animals.
