Using controlled breathing patterns during inhalation of drugs is characterized by a high dose reproducibility which may be of advantage for bronchial provocation testing. In this study 30 healthy subjects with an anamnesis of atopy underwent in a randomized cross-over design bronchial provocation testing with methacholine either with the Viasys-Jäger-APS system or with controlled inhalations (AKITA-System) (controlled inhalation volume and flow). Measured was the frequency of positive test… CONTINUE READING
