Sweat conductivity and coulometric quantitative test in neonatal cystic fibrosis screening.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE To compare the results obtained with the sweat test using the conductivity method and coulometric measurement of sweat chloride in newborns (NBs) with suspected cystic fibrosis (CF) in the neonatal screening program. METHODS The sweat test was performed simultaneously by both methods in children with and without CF. The cutoff values to confirm… (More)
