The application of negative expiratory pressure (NEP) to the airway opening during forced expiratory maneuvers has recently been described as a noninvasive method to assess whether flow limitation is achieved in adults. This methodology has great potential for extending the measurement of forced expiratory maneuvers to young children who may not produce maximal efforts as reproducibly as adults. We used NEP to assess flow limitation in 10 children between 3 and 5 yr of age. NEP was well… CONTINUE READING
