Phenotype classification using the combination of lung sound analysis and fractional exhaled nitric oxide for evaluating asthma treatment.

Abstract

BACKGROUND We report the utility of combining lung sound analysis and fractional exhaled nitric oxide (FeNO) for phenotype classification of airway inflammation in patients with bronchial asthma. We investigated the usefulness of the combination of the expiration-to-inspiration sound power ratio in the mid-frequency range (E/I MF) of 200-400 Hz and FeNO for… (More)
