We compared standard chest physical therapy and postural drainage (CPT/PD) with a new airway clearance therapy called high-frequency chest wall oscillation (HFCWO) in a group of stable cystic fibrosis (CF) patients. In this crossover trial, 29 CF patients (15 males, 14 females), aged 7-47 years that met the inclusion criteria were randomly assigned to(More)
Bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) is a chronic obstructive pulmonary disease of prematurely born infants following prolonged mechanical ventilation and oxygen therapy. Developmental changes in pulmonary function of children with BPD during their early years have been difficult to study. We longitudinally studied maximal expiratory flow-volume curves by the(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to evaluate the long-term cardiopulmonary outcome at ages 10-15 yrs following neonatal extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO). The specific aims of the study were to assess baseline aerobic capacity, cardiac function, and pulmonary function in neonatal ECMO survivors using graded exercise testing,(More)
Twenty-one stable hospitalized cystic fibrosis patients with malabsorption syndrome participated in an open-label crossover clinical trial to evaluate the efficacy of two-period dosing regimens of a pancreatic microtablet enzyme preparation in the treatment of steatorrhea. Standard dosing consisted of 500 U lipase/kg body weight/meal, 250 U lipase/kg body(More)
Controversies exist regarding the clinical presentation and characteristics of cystic fibrosis (CF) in American blacks. Between 1971 and 1986, 188 patients with CF (165 whites, 20 blacks, and 3 others) seen at Children's Hospital National Medical Center, Washington, DC, were evaluated for age at diagnosis, duration of symptoms prior to diagnosis, clinical(More)
Osteogenesis imperfecta (OI) is an inherited connective tissue disorder with skeletal dysplasia of varying severity, predominantly caused by mutations in the collagen I genes (COL1A1/COL1A2). Extraskeletal findings such as cardiac and pulmonary complications are generally considered to be significant secondary features. Aga2, a murine model for human OI,(More)
Laryngotracheal reconstruction in children with autogenous rib cartilage has proved successful in relieving laryngotracheal stenosis. To date, no objective measurements have been available to assess the upper airway's functional ability in these children after decannulation. A pilot study analyzing pulmonary function in 18 children successfully decannulated(More)
