BACKGROUND The impulse oscillometry system is a noninvasive method of evaluating respiratory mechanics that is being increasingly used in the pediatric population. To date, no reference equations have been developed for healthy Brazilian children and adolescents. The purpose of the study was to determine the reference equations for impulse oscillometry(More)
BACKGROUND Measurements of respiratory muscle strength are widely used for assessment in children; however, clearly defined predictive equations for the Brazilian pediatric population have yet to be established. OBJECTIVE To determine the prediction equations for maximal respiratory pressures in healthy children. METHOD Cross-sectional observational(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the impact of manual vibrocompression and nasotracheal suctioning on heart (hr) and respiratory (rr) rates, peripheral oxygen saturation (SpO(2)), pain and respiratory distress in infants in the postoperative period of a cardiac surgery. METHODS Randomized controlled trial, in which the assessments were performed by the same(More)
BACKGROUND To identify the anthropometric variables in equations/reference values of impulse oscillometry system (IOS) parameters in preschoolers, children and adolescents. METHOD Systematic search on the databases MEDLINE/Ovid, SCOPUS and SciELO using the key words "preschool, child and adolescent", "impulse oscillometry", "reference values" and its(More)
