This article describes a method for estimation of lung volume that is based on the use of adaptive modelling principles, involving continuous parameter adjustment through the use of sensitivity functions. The technique is implemented using an analog computer. Measurements of lung volume obtained using this approach have been compared with results found by more conventional methods in a group of normal subjects.
