The PulmoTrack® 2010 with WIM-PC™ Technologies device, indicated for acoustic pulmonary function measurement that quantifies the presence of wheezing. This study was designed in order to evaluate the efficacy and safety of using the WIM-PC™ device for wheeze detection during dynamic bronchial situations in asthmatic adult.
Asthma is defined by the National Asthma Education and Prevention Program (NAEPP) guideline as a 'Chronic inflammatory disorder of the airways in which many cells and cellular elements play a role. The asthma guideline states that inflammation causes recurrent episodes of wheezing, breathlessness and chest tightness that are associated with widespread but variable airflow obstruction.
Wheeze quantification by lung sounds analysis methods is objective, non invasive and has been shown to correlate with clinical status in asthma and bronchiolitis. The recording procedure is simple, requiring only the attachment of 4 ECG-size sensors to the chest wall. A 30-second recording is often adequate to obtain good quality data, where wheezes are detected and counted with high degree of accuracy.

Smoking occurs frequently in patients with asthma. Recent surveys on smoking prevalence report 21-26% current smokers in populations of patients with asthma. Detrimental effects of active ...
Bronchial remodeling is a major pathological feature of asthma. Non-invasive assessment of this bronchial remodeling is a crucial issue for asthma patients' follow-up. Currently, computed ...
The combination of asthma and being a carrier of genetic variants (mutations and / or polymorphisms) in the CFTR gene variant would cause bronchial asthma with mucus hypersecretion. This p...
Hopkins syndrome (HS) is a rare disorder presenting with acute flaccid paralysis of the limbs following an asthma attack. Neurologists encounter a diagnostic challenge if patients without a history of...
Here, we report findings in volunteers with bronchial asthma. Biopsies were obtained from the inner bronchial wall before and a short time again after segmental allergen provocation. In most of the ba...
Perturbations to the composition and function of bronchial bacterial communities appear to contribute to the pathophysiology of asthma. Unraveling the nature and mechanisms of these complex associatio...
Bronchial hyperresponsiveness (BHR), one of the key features of asthma, shows a diverse natural course in school-aged children, but, studies on BHR phenotypes are lacking.
Bronchial asthma and obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) are common respiratory disorders that can co-exist. The strength of this association, and also the impact of OSA on asthma-related clinical outcomes...
Thermal destruction of the excess bronchial SMOOTH MUSCLE tissue with heat delivered through a catheter assembly attached to a BRONCHOSCOPE. It is often used to control BRONCHIAL HYPERREACTIVITY in severe ASTHMA for better AIRWAY MANAGEMENT.
A beta-2 adrenergic agonist used in the treatment of ASTHMA and BRONCHIAL SPASM.
A histamine analog and H1 receptor agonist that serves as a vasodilator. It is used in MENIERE DISEASE and in vascular headaches but may exacerbate bronchial asthma and peptic ulcers.
A drug combination that contains THEOPHYLLINE and ethylenediamine. It is more soluble in water than theophylline but has similar pharmacologic actions. It's most common use is in bronchial asthma, but it has been investigated for several other applications.
Left bronchial arteries arise from the thoracic aorta, the right from the first aortic intercostal or the upper left bronchial artery; they supply the bronchi and the lower trachea.

The term allergy is used to describe a response, within the body, to a substance, which is not necessarily harmful in itself, but results in an immune response and a reaction that causes symptoms and disease in a predisposed person, which in turn can cau...
Asthma is caused by inflammation of small tubes, called bronchi, which carry air in and out of the lungs. If you have asthma, the bronchi will be inflamed and more sensitive than normal. When you come into contact with something that irritates your...
