BACKGROUND The objective of the study was to assess bronchial inflammation in preschool children with recurrent bronchitis by measuring exhaled nitric oxide. PATIENTS AND METHODS The study included patients under 4 years of age with at least 3 episodes of wheezing in the past year (n=63) and a control group (n=30). Exhaled nitric oxide was measured in(More)
OBJECTIVE Our aim was to study the concentration of nitric oxide in the exhaled (ENO) and nasal (NNO) air of normal children and asthmatic children who are clinically and functionally stable. PATIENTS AND METHODS Using a nitric oxide chemiluminescence analyze and a register for CO2, pressure and flow, we studied 73 schoolchildren (6-17 years of age). This(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study is to report nasal nitric oxide (nNO) values in children with primary ciliary dyskinesia (PCD) and to compare them with nNO values in healthy children, asthmatic children, children with cystic fibrosis and children with post infectious bronchiectasis. PATIENTS AND METHODS We determined nNO values in 9 children with PCD, 36(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the safety of the tracheal auscultation method for measuring bronchial hyperresponsiveness in healthy unsedated children aged less than 4 years and to establish a range of normal bronchial hyperresponsiveness values. POPULATION AND METHODS The study population consisted of healthy children aged between 6 months and 4 years. A(More)
We present our experience of 26 cases of cystic adenomatoid malformations of the lung (CAM), treated in the Department of Pediatric Surgery in our hospital between 1967-1991. There were two clinical pictures: one neonatal severe respiratory distress and successive repeated pulmonary infection appearing after the patient's first year of life and requiring(More)
We present our experience of 38 patients suffering from congenital lobar emphysema (CLE) treated in the Department of Pediatric Surgery in our hospital between 1966-1991. 22 of these patients had to undergo surgical correction due to the severity of their respiratory symptoms. The other 16 presented mild respiratory symptoms: 8 of them received conservative(More)
Children suffering from difficult-to-control asthma (DCA) require frequent appointments with their physician, complex treatment regimes and often admissions to hospital. Less than 5% of the asthmatic population suffer this condition. DCA must be correctly characterised to rule out false causes of DCA and requires making a differential diagnosis from(More)
OBJECTIVE This study examines the technical characteristics of two different peak expiratory flow meters, of high range, and the reference values of peak expiratory flow (PEF) for schoolchildren. PATIENTS AND METHODS The gauge accuracy and precision were previously determined in 20 units of each model (PF-Control and Mini-Wright), with a syringe(More)
