Paper Abstract

The first results on simultaneous measurements of carbon oxide and carbon dioxide in expired air with the help of tunable diode laser spectroscopy are presented. Exact preliminary data on high resolution absorption spectra of these gases in 4 - 5 microns spectral region provides a simple technique for such investigations. Application of tunable diode lasers for the analysis of human exhalation ensures high sensitivity, accuracy, and a fast rate of measurements; it could therefore be promising as a new method for medicine diagnostics.
