    The measurement of lung function by spirometry is routinely used to monitor and adequately treat children with asthma. The assessment and evaluation of lung function in children aged 3-5 years has been neglected for a long time because of the difficulty to perform forced expiratory maneuvers....

    Most children with functionally univentricular hearts nowadays are treated surgically by creating a total cavopulmonary connection. In the resulting Fontan circulation, the venous return and the pulmonary arterial bed are coupled in series, bypassing the heart. This gives the potential for...

    Rationale High resolution computed tomography (HRCT) is a more sensitive tool for detecting early cystic fibrosis (CF) lung disease than either spirometry or plain radiography, but its relationship to other measures of lung function has not been established in young children.

    Rationale Evidence regarding exercise capacity and physical activity in children born extremely preterm (EP) is limited. Since survivors remain at high risk for developing bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) and longterm pulmonary sequelae, reductions in exercise capacity and activity levels may be...
