Short-term intraindividual variability of the parameters derived from respiratory transfer impedance (Ztr) measured from 4 to 32 Hz was studied in 10 healthy subjects. The corresponding 95% confidence intervals (CIo) were compared with those computed from a single set of data (CIL) according to Lutchen and Jackson (J. Appl. Physiol. 62: 403-413, 1987). Ztr was analyzed with the six-coefficient model of DuBois et al. (J. Appl. Physiol. 8: 587-594, 1956), which includes airway resistance (Raw) and inertance (Iaw), tissue resistance (Rti), inertance (Iti), and compliance (Cti), and alveolar gas compressibility (Cg). The lowest variability was seen for Iaw (CIo = 11.1%), closely followed by Raw (14.3%) and Cti (14.8%), and the largest for Rti and Iti (24.6 and 93.6%, respectively). Using a simpler model, where Iti was excluded, significantly decreased the variability of Iaw (P less than 0.01) and Rti (P less than 0.05) but was responsible for a systematic decrease of Raw and Iaw and increase of Rti. Except for Raw with both models and Iaw with the simpler model, CIL was greater than CIo. Whatever the model, a high correlation between both sets of confidence intervals was found for Rti and Iaw, whereas no correlation was seen for Raw. This suggests that the variability of the former coefficients mainly reflects experimental noise, whereas that of the latter is largely due to biological variability.
