Spread of beta-lactam-resistant Pseudomonas aeruginosa in a cystic fibrosis clinic.
BACKGROUND Pseudomonas aeruginosa colonisation of the airways of patients with cystic fibrosis (CF) is associated with considerable respiratory morbidity. Although segregation of colonised patients… Expand
Reversible bronchial dilatation in children: comparison of serial high-resolution computer tomography scans of the lungs.
INTRODUCTION Bronchiectasis is generally considered irreversible in the adult population, largely based on studies employing bronchography in cases with a significant clinical history. It is assumed,… Expand
Effect of respiratory virus infections including rhinovirus on clinical status in cystic fibrosis.
One hundred and eight patients with cystic fibrosis were investigated over one year to determine whether an association existed between rhinovirus or other respiratory virus infection and clinical… Expand
Postural effects on gas exchange in infants.
In adults with unilateral lung disease, pulmonary gas exchange is better when the patients is positioned with the good lung dependent. We studied the effects of body position on gas exchange in 10… Expand
Strictures of ascending colon in cystic fibrosis and high-strength pancreatic enzymes
We have observed five children with cystic fibrosis, who presented over 2 months, with meconium ileus equivalent that failed to respond to medical management. At surgery, four had a stricture in the… Expand
Changes in pulmonary function during the diuretic phase of respiratory distress syndrome.
To evaluate the relationship between improvement in pulmonary function and spontaneous diuresis in respiratory distress syndrome, nine premature infants requiring mechanical ventilation for RDS were… Expand

Passive smoking was measured in 57 children with cystic fibrosis and in 51 controls using a questionnaire and a measurement of urinary cotinine concentration. In the cystic fibrosis group, cotinine… Expand
Nasopharyngeal airways in Pierre Robin Syndrome.
Nasopharyngeal airways have been assessed in the management of infants with severe Pierre Robin syndrome. In 12 such infants the positioning and subsequent maintenance of these tubes were found to be… Expand

The objective of this study was to investigate the spatial distribution of respiratory morbidity and asthma in children in relation to high levels of airborne dust pollution. A cross-sectional survey… Expand
Comparison of the occlusion and inflation techniques for measuring total respiratory compliance in sick, intubated infants
Respiratory system compliance (Crs) can be used to assess lung stiffness in sick, intubated infants, avoiding the use of an esopnageal balloon. Crs was assessed in a group of 15 sick, intubated… Expand
