More and more general practitioners (GPs) use spirometry in their practices. At this time, there is sufficient reason to presume that, after a single postgraduate training program without ...
The investigator evaluated diaphragmatic function in patients undergoing thoracic surgery. Diaphragmatic displacement was evaluated before surgery, 24 and 48 hours after surgery. Also, pre...
The main aim of this study is to test spirometry measurements using EIT with a calibration using tidal volume obtained from the simultaneous standard spirometry measurement. Another goal i...
The purpose of this study is analyze if spirometry is a motivational element for changes in the cessation phases of the tobacco habit, compared with not done spirometry.
Rational: The possible contribution of methacholine challenge test via spirometry to the clinical diagnosis of young children with various respiratory symptoms, the most appropriate spirom...
Whether preoperative spirometry in non-thoracic surgery can predict postoperative pulmonary complications (PPCs) is controversial. We investigated whether preoperative spirometry results can predict t...
Obesity and weight-loss have complex effects on respiratory physiology, but these have been insufficiently studied, particularly at early time points following weight-loss surgery and in the supine po...
Computed tomography (CT) and spirometry are the current standard methods for assessing lung anatomy and pulmonary ventilation, respectively. However, CT provides limited ventilation information and sp...
Primary ciliary dyskinesia (PCD) is an inherited disorder characterized by heterogeneous airway disease. Traditional lung function techniques (e.g. spirometry) may underestimate severity and complexit...
Care given during the period prior to undergoing surgery when psychological and physical preparations are made according to the special needs of the individual patient. This period spans the time between admission to the hospital to the time the surgery begins. (From Dictionary of Health Services Management, 2d ed)
Surgical procedures conducted with the aid of computers. This is most frequently used in orthopedic and laparoscopic surgery for implant placement and instrument guidance. Image-guided surgery interactively combines prior CT scans or MRI images with real-time video.
Methods used for detecting the amplified DNA products from the polymerase chain reaction as they accumulate instead of at the end of the reaction.
The time from the onset of a stimulus until a response is observed.
Endoscopic surgical procedures performed with visualization via video transmission. When real-time video is combined interactively with prior CT scans or MRI images, this is called image-guided surgery (see SURGERY, COMPUTER-ASSISTED).
