The clinical application of respiratory impedance measurements by oscillation techniques for monitoring bronchial challenge testing is hampered by the fact that data in healthy nonsmokers and asymptomatic smokers are very limited. The objective of this study was to analyze the changes in impedance to a methacholine provocation test in healthy nonsmokers and asymptomatic smokers, and to investigate whether smokers show a different response compared to nonsmokers. The response to methacholine… CONTINUE READING
