Measurement of lung function is an important component of clinical management in cystic fibrosis (CF), but has been difficult in young children. The present study aimed to characterise the utility of the forced oscillation technique for measurement of lung function in preschool-aged children with CF in a routine clinical setting. Lung function was assessed in 56 young children (aged 2-7 yrs) with CF. Respiratory system resistance (R(rs)) and reactance (X(rs)) at 6, 8 and 10 Hz were measured and… CONTINUE READING
