Impulse oscillometry (IOS) is a computer-supported method for the measurement of complex mechanical airway characteristics. The aim of this study was to evaluate the applicability of IOS in the diagnosis of obstructive airway diseases in comparison to the standard methods of spirometry, pneumotachymetry, and bodyplethysmography. 244 patients (age 61.5 ± 13.6 years; 61 % men) with bronchial asthma (n = 65) and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) (n = 179) were retrospectively analysed… 
Comparison of Impulse Osillometry System and Spirometry for Diagnosis of Obstructive Lung Disorders
IOS can be an alternative for spirometry in the diagnosis of obstructive lung disease in patients with minimal cooperation, and R5 can represent COPD severity.
Impulse oscillometry in the diagnosis of airway resistance in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
The severity of bronchial obstruction found by impulse oscillometry correlated well the spirometric assessment, and IOS is a simple to perform test that may be helpful for functional examination of COPD patients.
Small Airway Obstruction in Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease: Potential Parameters for Early Detection.
A high sensitivity of R5-R20 in reflecting the MMEF makes the IOS method particularly useful for detection of mild lung injury, while a high specificity of the spirometric FEV3/FVC ratio makes it useful to exclude obstruction of small airways.
Accuracy of forced oscillation technique to assess lung function in geriatric COPD population
FOT may act as a simple and accurate tool in the assessment of severity of airflow limitation, small and central airway function, and air trapping in patients with geriatric COPD who have difficulties performing conventional lung function test.
Airway Obstruction in Sleep Apnea Patients.
It is concluded that the severity of OSA in smokers does not associate with the presence of airway obstruction, however, the increased peripheral respiratory resistance found in oscillometry did relate to a longer smoking time in OSA patients.
Neuro-fuzzy classification of asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease
A neuro-fuzzy system for classification of asthma and COPD uses a combination of spirometry and Impulse Oscillometry System (IOS) test results, which in the very beginning enables more accurate classification.
Impulse Oscillometry (IOS)
An impulse generator is used to apply small measurement oscillation pressure impulses to the respiratory system of a patient breathing normally. These impulses are multifrequency oscillations in
Spirometry and impulse oscillometry (IOS) for detection of respiratory abnormalities in metropolitan firefighters
Whether the use of impulse oscillometry (IOS) reveals respiratory abnormalities in metropolitan firefighters that go undetected during routine respiratory health screening by spirometry and assessment of respiratory symptoms is established.
