    In the present cohort, 85% of infants hospitalized for wheezing outgrew their symptoms until puberty, but 30-40% had asthma, depending on criteria, again in young adulthood. The aim of this study was to determine early predictors for adulthood asthma, bronchial reactivity, and lung function...

    Deep inhalation (DI) induces changes in airway calibre that may last beyond the manoeuvre itself. The mechanisms involve mechanical interaction between conducting airways subjected to parenchymal tethering and lung parenchyma itself. Healthy children usually show small bronchodilation after DI....

    Background: The distribution of airway responsiveness in a general population of non-smokers without respiratory symptoms has not been established, limiting its use in clinical and epidemiological practice. We derived reference equations depending on individual characteristics (i.e., sex, age,...

    BACKGROUND: Although several risk factors for asthma have been identified in infants and young children with recurrent wheeze, the relevance of assessing lung function in this group remains unclear. Whether lung function is reduced during the first 2 years in recurrently wheezy children, with...
