American Thoracic Society (ATS)

I’m beginning to upload photos (link below) from here in Washington, DC, where I am attending the annual meetings of the American Thoracic Society.


The photo below is of Eduardo Lima Leite Praça, a pediatric pulmonologist from Brazil who has been working in our lab for the past year. The poster describes research he did in our lab that shows we get very similar results when we measure the diffusing capacity of the lungs by either of two methods. The method we’ve been using for years uses a mass spectrometer to measure gas concentrations continuously in real time. The new method is to use a gas chromatograph, instead, which is much less expensive and much more portable.
