    In a sample of 77 men and 53 women aged 17-25 years, it has been shown that the duration of tracheal forced expiratory noises is significantly shorter in women. However, normalizing the duration of tracheal forced expiratory noises to height, body mass, and chest circumference eliminates this...

    Reference values for pulmonary function are dependent on age. Data on dynamic lung volumes and respiratory muscle strength for Turkish adolescents as a function of age are absent. The aim of the present study was to determine the effect of age on dynamic lung volumes and respiratory muscle...

    Background: A sensitive and valid non-invasive marker of early cystic fibrosis (CF) lung disease is sought. The lung clearance index (LCI) from multiple-breath washout (MBW) is known to detect abnormal lung function more readily than spirometry in children and teenagers with CF, but...

    A group of 270 young men aged 16-25 years including healthy nonsmokers, healthy smokers, and bronchial asthma patients with and without spirometry-confirmed bronchial obstruction was tested. The forced expiratory noise time recorded on the trachea in a frequency band of 200-2000 Hz, the...

    Asthma is a common chronic pediatric respiratory disease associated with significant morbidity. Current guidelines recommend monitoring forced expiratory volume in 1 s (FEV1) as part of the assessment of asthma severity and control; however, many children with asthma have a normal FEV1 despite...

    Objective: To obtain reference values for FEV1, FVC, FEV1% and PEFR among children aged 8-14 years in south Gujarat region of India.Materials and Methods: This cross-sectional study was conducted among 655 normal healthy school children (408 boys and 247 girls) of Surat city aged 8 to 14 years...

    Background: Although infant lung function (ILF) testing is widely practiced in developed Western countries it is not typically performed in Eastern countries, and lung measurements are scarce for Asian infants. Therefore, this study aimed to establish normal reference values for Taiwanese...

    Background: Allergic rhinitis (AR) may be frequently associated with asthma or precede it. Bronchial involvement in AR is usually detected by spirometry. Forced expiratory volume in 1 second (FEV1) is considered a reliable parameter for asthma diagnosis. However, forced expiratory flow at 25-75%...

    Latent growth models were applied to longitudinal twin data on markers of aging to investigate genetic and environmental influences on the processes of change with age. The sample included 1957 participants aged 50 to 96 years. Five markers were assessed: forced expiratory volume, mean arterial...

    BACKGROUND: Urban air pollution can trigger asthma exacerbations, but the effects of long-term exposure to traffic-related air pollution on lung function or onset of airway disease and allergic sensitisation in children is less clear. METHODS: All 2107 children aged 9–14 years from 40...
