BACKGROUND Objective lung function measurements are routinely used to diagnose and manage asthma, but their utility for young children has not been defined. OBJECTIVE Bronchodilator responses were measured by means of impulse oscillometry (IOS) and compared with conventional spirometry to determine the value of lung function measures in 4-year-old asthma-prone children. METHODS The study participants were in the Childhood Asthma Prevention Study (National Institute of Health/National… CONTINUE READING
