Use of an impedance meter for measuring airways responsiveness to histamine.

Abstract

We compared spirometry (FEV1) and airway impedance (z) in the assessment of airway responsiveness to histamine. Airway impedance was measured by the oscillator technique during quiet breathing; both measurements were made twice after each increment of histamine during the challenge. Percentage change in impedance was related to percentage change in FEV1… (More)
