The purposes of this study were to compare sweat tests used in diagnosing cystic fibrosis (CF), as performed with the Macroduct collection system, with those utilizing the more laborious quantitative pilocarpine iontophoresis test (QPIT), and to ascertain the efficacy of the Sweat-Chek conductivity analyzer in eliminating some possibly unnecessary chloride analyses. A Macroduct sweat test was performed on one arm and a QPIT on the other on 1090 patients, 93 of whom had CF. Of these, 514… CONTINUE READING
