To determine normative data by forced oscillation technique (FOT) in non-sedated normal term neonates and test the hypothesis that infants with transient tachypnea of the newborn (TTN) have higher resistance (R) and lower reactance (X) on day 1.

The impact of the consistent implementation of "aggressive" nutrition by means of intensive early neonatal nutritional support up to 40-44 weeks postmenstrual age and the use of nasal continuous posit...
Spirometry is conventionally used to diagnose airway diseases in children with sickle cell disease (C-SCD). However, spirometry is difficult for younger children to perform, is effort dependent, and i...
Due to changes in funding, late pre-term neonates are no longer admitted to neonatal units unless diagnosed with a specific medical condition. Consequently, neonates born at a gestational age of 35 we...
Asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) are characterized by persistent airway inflammation and airflow limitation. Early detection of these diseases in patients with respiratory sympt...
Forced expiratory maneuvers are usually difficult in young children. Impulse oscillometry (IOS) requires no active cooperation, is noninvasive, rapid, and easy to perform. This study aimed to compare ...
The purpose of this observational study is to measure pulmonary function in term and preterm infants with and without pulmonary disease including respiratory distress syndrome, bronchopulm...
Inhalation of dust containing asbestos results in a process of interstitial pulmonary fibrosis called asbestosis. The Forced Oscillation Technique (FOT) evaluates the respiratory mechanics...
This registry was proposed to investigate the epidemiology of respiratory mechanics in patients with ARDS through collecting data from a QI project which was constituted with systematic as...
The objective of the study is to estimate the incidence of asynchrony and to assess its relationship with respiratory mechanics. This will be a prospective cohort study, including patients...
A 5-point decline of forced vital capacity expressed as % predicted, over 6 months, is the current definition of disease progression (fast decline in lung function) in idiopathic pulmonary...
A form of gram-negative meningitis that tends to occur in neonates, in association with anatomical abnormalities (which feature communication between the meninges and cutaneous structures) or as OPPORTUNISTIC INFECTIONS in association with IMMUNOLOGIC DEFICIENCY SYNDROMES. In premature neonates the clinical presentation may be limited to ANOREXIA; VOMITING; lethargy; or respiratory distress. Full-term infants may have as additional features FEVER; SEIZURES; and bulging of the anterior fontanelle. (From Menkes, Textbook of Child Neurology, 5th ed, pp398-400)
The branch of physics which deals with the motions of material bodies, including kinematics, dynamics, and statics. When the laws of mechanics are applied to living structures, as to the locomotor system, it is referred to as BIOMECHANICS. (From Dorland, 28th ed)
The physical or mechanical action of the LUNGS; DIAPHRAGM; RIBS; and CHEST WALL during respiration. It includes airflow, lung volume, neural and reflex controls, mechanoreceptors, breathing patterns, etc.
Measure of the maximum amount of air that can be expelled in a given number of seconds during a FORCED VITAL CAPACITY determination . It is usually given as FEV followed by a subscript indicating the number of seconds over which the measurement is made, although it is sometimes given as a percentage of forced vital capacity.
The rate of airflow measured during a FORCED VITAL CAPACITY determination.
