Within-Breath Total Respiratory Input Impedance in Healthy Adult Subjects

2019-10-31 14:29:42 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Assessment of lung function requires the evaluation of pulmonary function by spirometry. However, some patients (e.g. children, elderly, or diseased individuals) may have difficulty performing the related forced maximal respiratory maneuver correctly. Forced oscillation technique (FOT) is increasingly being used in clinical settings to evaluate lung function noninvasively by measuring the mechanical input impedance of the respiratory system. FOT measures lung impedance during tidal breathing, requiring minimal patient cooperation. Recently a new methodology (within breath analysis) has emerged to evaluate changes that occur in the impedance during the breathing activity. The within-breath calculation of impedance allows separating the contribution of inspiration and expiration to the measured parameters.

The purpose of this study is to establish reference ranges for within breath FOT parameters and their short term variability.

Description

Purpose and rationale Assessment of lung function requires the evaluation of pulmonary function by spirometry. However, some patients (e.g. children, elderly, or diseased individuals) may have difficulty performing the related forced maximal respiratory maneuver correctly. Forced oscillation technique (FOT) is increasingly being used in clinical settings to evaluate lung function noninvasively by measuring the mechanical input impedance of the respiratory system. FOT measures lung impedance during tidal breathing, requiring minimal patient cooperation. Recently a new methodology (within breath analysis) has emerged to evaluate changes that occur in the impedance during the breathing activity. The within-breath calculation of impedance allows separating the contribution of inspiration and expiration to the measured parameters.

The purpose of this study is to establish reference ranges for within breath FOT parameters and their short term variability.

Objectives Primary: To derive equations to predict normal values and normality ranges for within-breath respiratory system resistance, reactance and related parameters at the selected stimulating waveform and to measure the short term variability of such parameters.

Secondary: To demonstrate the equivalence of the results of a single multiple-breath test to results obtained as an average of 3 consecutive repeated tests.

Study design This will be a prospective multi-center trial of healthy subjects. After signing the Informed Consent, an interview and physical examination will be performed. The examiner will confirm that subjects are able to perform acceptable and repeatable spirometry. FOT measurements will be performed, followed by standard spirometry measurements.

Study Duration This is a single visit study. Subject participation will be completed in 1 hour and 15 min. Enrollment of all subjects is expected to take 23 weeks (6 months).

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A mutant strain of TRANSMISSIBLE GASTROENTERITIS VIRUS causing mild or subclinical respiratory infections in young SWINE. It may also play a role in post-weaning porcine respiratory disease complex, especially when combined with other respiratory agents.

Diseases of the respiratory system in general or unspecified or for a specific respiratory disease not available.

A respiratory distress syndrome in newborn infants, usually premature infants with insufficient PULMONARY SURFACTANTS. The disease is characterized by the formation of a HYALINE-like membrane lining the terminal respiratory airspaces (PULMONARY ALVEOLI) and subsequent collapse of the lung (PULMONARY ATELECTASIS).

A syndrome characterized by outbreaks of late term abortions, high numbers of stillbirths and mummified or weak newborn piglets, and respiratory disease in young unweaned and weaned pigs. It is caused by PORCINE RESPIRATORY AND REPRODUCTIVE SYNDROME VIRUS. (Radostits et al., Veterinary Medicine, 8th ed, p1048)

Chronic endemic respiratory disease of dairy calves and an important component of bovine respiratory disease complex. It primarily affects calves up to six months of age and the etiology is multifactorial. Stress plus a primary viral infection is followed by a secondary bacterial infection. The latter is most commonly associated with PASTEURELLA MULTOCIDA producing a purulent BRONCHOPNEUMONIA. Sometimes present are MANNHEIMIA HAEMOLYTICA; HAEMOPHILUS SOMNUS and mycoplasma species.
