Their peak expiratory flow
values fall below 40% of personal best.
RESULTS: We found significant reduction in the peak expiratory flow
rate after the children's exposure to particulate pollutants.
Peak expiratory flow
rate as predictor of inpatient mortality in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
A randomized trial comparing peak expiratory flow
and symptom self-management plans for patients with asthma attending a primary care clinic.
The abdominal binder combined with FES produced increased expiratory pressure consistent with an improved cough and increased peak expiratory flow
, however, manual thrusts generated the greatest peak expiratory cough flows.
The result of the test is called peak expiratory flow
Secondary endpoints of AM peak expiratory flow
rate, AM and PM asthma symptoms, nocturnal awakenings requiring a 2 agonist, and as needed use of inhaled 2 agonists showed differences from baseline favoring AEROSPAN over placebo.
Pre- and posttraining measurements included PImax, PEmax, VE, maximal flow volume loops, peak inspiratory flow, peak expiratory flow
rate (PEFR), FVC, FEV1, and forced expiratory flow at 50 percent of FVC, pulmonary gas exchange, and a progressive incremental rowing exercise test .
The most commonly reported adverse events* were asthma, peak expiratory flow
(PEF) rate decreased, nasopharyngitis and upper respiratory tract infection.
In the SNG001-treated patients there was a steady improvement in morning peak expiratory flow
whilst in the placebo-treated patients there was an initial dip during the first week followed by an improvement (p=0.
Post-bronchodilator FVC, FEV1, peak expiratory flow
rates (PEF), FEF50 and skinprick tests were measured at age 12.
The chest expansion, breath holding time and peak expiratory flow
rate were measured for assessing respiratory functions in standing posture.
