Two possible models for the alveolar region was presented to explain the exchange dynamics of nitric oxide. These models were based on the fact that diffusion capacity depends strongly on alveolar volume. Analytical results suggested that maximum flux was volume dependent and the ratio of maximum flux to diffusion capacity remained nearly constant.
