Paper Abstract

First results of diode laser spectroscopy methods applications for diagnosing the gas content of expired air are presented. Carbon monoxide (CO) contents of expirations of a sportsman and a smoker were subjected to analysis by using a computerized diode laser system. In the first case there was detected a considerable growth of CO concentration after an intensive exercise. In the second one there were revealed and measured three time constants - characteristics of CO removal from the organism. Promising trends of development and applications of diode laser spectroscopy in medicine are at issue.
