Evaluation of interpretation strategies and substantial bronchodilator response in pediatric patients with normal baseline spirometry.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Controversy exists regarding the best method to interpret pediatric spirometry. There is also controversy regarding the benefit of performing post-bronchodilator spirometry after normal baseline spirometry. This study compares the use of lower limit of normal (LLN) against percent of predicted (PP) in the interpretation of spirometry. We also… (More)
