The usefulness of the forced oscillation technique (FOT) for predicting the treatment outcomes in untreated asthmatic patients is unknown. We investigated whether FOT could predict an improvement in FEV1 following treatment. FOT, spirometry, and fractional exhaled nitric oxide were performed in 31 outpatients before and after undergoing a minimum of two(More)

Expiratory flow limitation (EFL) during tidal breathing is common in patients with severe COPD, and a major determinant of dynamic hyperinflation and exercise limitation. The negative expiratory pressure (NEP) technique has been the gold standard to detect EFL, while the forced oscillation technique (FOT) has also been reported to detect it. However, the(More)
A 48-year-old man with a history of asthma visited our hospital for the investigation of a high density mass at the right hilum. Laboratory data revealed elevated serum carcinoembryonic antigen. A bronchoscopy was performed to rule out lung cancer; however, mucoid impaction was found without malignant or bacterial cells. On the basis of peripheral blood(More)
Asaoka' method is a well-known method to predict settlement, and it is widely used for practical projects. Since Asaoka's method requires that the ground must be uniform, a problem in an un-uniform plane such as Haneda arises with respect to the application of Asaoka's method. This paper describes a method for an execution plans, experts choose the(More)
The paper suggests a new concept DLNR (Dynamic Learning Need Reflection) and its system practically used in the education at a Japanese University. The effects, particularly on the learning of software agents, are analyzed. DLNR's goal is to increase students' learning motivation through dynamically clarifying and reflecting their learning need. To achieve(More)
We propose a method to self-organize a user model for realizing a text search system. The method self-organizes a model from phoneme sequences and their texts using 6 basic rules. An inference method associated with the self-organized model searches texts corresponding to inputted phoneme sequences. Experiments using 50 voice waveforms of 10 speakers show(More)
