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 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...
The purpose of this study is to better understand how air is spread throughout your lungs after your abdominal surgery by comparing two lung inflation treatments: 1. Incentive Spirometr...
COPD is common but is under-diagnosed by general practitioners (GP). GP have a major role in the early diagnosis of this disease. GP could have access to spirometry. The aim of this study was to evalu...
Incentive spirometry (IS) is thought to reduce the incidence of postoperative pulmonary complications (PPC) after lung resection. We sought to determine whether the addition of IS to routine physiothe...
Pulmonary rehabilitation, including aerobic exercise and strength training, improves function, such as spirometric indices, in lung disease. However, we found spirometry did not correlate with physica...
Although not currently recommended, spirometry during hospitalization due to exacerbation of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is an opportunity to enhance the diagnosis of this disease. Th...
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...
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).
