Comparison of four methods of assessing airflow resistance before and after induced airway narrowing in normal subjects.

Abstract

Four methods for assessing airflow resistance were compared in seven normal adults at baseline and after inducing airway narrowing with inhaled methacholine. Airway resistance (Raw) was measured during panting at 1-2 Hz within a body plethysmograph; total lung resistance was measured by using an esophageal balloon during quiet breathing (RLq) and with… (More)
