BACKGROUND Conventional endotracheal pediatric tubes offer high resistance due to their small diameters and relatively high flow during ventilation. Any increase of the diameter of the tube lumen decreases the airway resistance and subsequently, the work of breathing (WOB). We compared ventilation mechanics using a new, cone-shaped endotracheal tube of our(More)
HPLC is the most useful method to analyze various species of mycobacteria by using mycolic acids. The purpose was to prepare a library containing chromatographic patterns of mycolic acids derived from reference species Mycobacterium, which had been cultivated in standard conditions. 28 reference strains (27 ones from American Type Culture Collection and one(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the influence of pretreatment with the phosphodiesterase-4 inhibitor rolipram on pulmonary resistance, influx of inflammatory cells, and histamine concentration in bronchoalveolar lavage fluid (BALF) during an experimental asthmatic reaction induced in ovalbumin (OA)-sensitized guinea pigs, challenged with OA(More)
The aim of the study was to estimate the utility of the HPLC-based method of mycolic acids analysis to classify Mycobacterium species in routine diagnostic procedure on the basis of own three-year experience. 2142 patients' specimens were examined. 141 AFB were cultured. 36.2% strains were classified as M. tuberculosis complex by HPLC. The identification(More)
