Title Errors in derivations of the Coburn-Forster-Kane equation for predicting carboxyhemoglobin
Bibliographic information July 1996, Vol.57, No.7, p.621-625. 28 ref.
Abstract This study is an investigation of derivations of the Coburn-Forster-Kane equation (CFKE, for original derivation see NIOSH publication HMS 73-11000, see CIS 73-530) for predicting carboxyhaemoglobin levels. Errors in different derivations of the equation are identified and the effect of the errors is discussed in view of the relevance to control carbon monoxide production inside military vehicles.
