bronchospirometry

 [brong″ko-spi-rom´ĕ-tre]
use of a spirometer to determine vital capacity, oxygen intake, and carbon dioxide excretion of a single lung, or to get simultaneous measurements of the function of each lung separately; it is sometimes used to predict the success of pulmonary resection surgery.
differential bronchospirometry measurement of the function of each lung separately.

bron·cho·spi·rom·e·try

(brong'kō-spī-rom'ĕ-trē),
Use of a bronchospirometer to measure ventilatory function of each lung separately.

bronchospirometry

/bron·cho·spi·rom·e·try/ (brong″ko-spi-rom´ĕ-tre) determination of vital capacity, oxygen intake, and carbon dioxide excretion of a lung, or simultaneous measurements of the function of each lung separately.
differential bronchospirometry  measurement of the function of each lung separately.

bronchospirometry

[-spīrom′ətrē]
a technique for the study of the ventilation and gas exchange of each lung separately by the introduction of a catheter into either the left or the right mainstem bronchus. A double-lumen tube permits simultaneous but separate sampling of the gas from both lungs.
