Abstract

The first step in the exchange of O2 between the atmosphere and the alveolar capillary blood is the exchange between the inhaled tidal volume and the functional residual capacity. This exchange accurs completely in the gas phase by molecular diffusion across the moving gaseous interface that separates these two volumes during inspiration and expiration.
