High impact information on Plethysmography, Whole Body


Chemical compound and disease context of Plethysmography, Whole Body

  • The effects of salbutamol 0.225 mg/kg given systemically on lung function in infants have been measured by whole-body plethysmography in 60 children with broncho-pulmonary diseases (24 after respiratory distress syndrome, 21 with wheezy bronchitis and 15 with cystic fibrosis) [11].

Biological context of Plethysmography, Whole Body


Associations of Plethysmography, Whole Body with chemical compounds

  • Three hours after cessation of O(3), airway responses to inhaled methacholine were determined by whole body plethysmography using changes in enhanced pause (Penh) as an index of airway narrowing [16].
  • Nasal resistance was followed until 10 h after allergen challenge and on a control day using whole body plethysmography [13].
  • Whole body plethysmography was used to examine the ventilatory response to 5% CO2 before and during focal inhibition of serotonergic neurons by 8-hydroxy-2-di-n-propylaminotetralin (8-OH-DPAT), a 5-HT1A receptor agonist [17].
  • Bronchial beta-blockade was estimated as the displacement of the salbutamol bronchodilator response of specific airway conductance (SGAW) measured by whole-body plethysmography [18].
  • Hyperoxia-induced lung damage was investigated via airway and respiratory tissue mechanics measurements with low-frequency forced oscillations (LFOT) and analysis of spontaneous breathing indexes by barometric whole body plethysmography (WBP) [19].

Gene context of Plethysmography, Whole Body

  • To investigate the possible involvement of ET-3 in central ventilatory control, we measured ventilation in mutant mice deficient in ET-3 by whole body plethysmography [20].
  • Pulmonary function parameters were measured by whole body plethysmography just before treatment and hourly for three hours [21].
  • During the treatment period, repeated baseline ventilatory measurements were assessed by using whole body plethysmography while quasistatic pressure-volume curves were performed to further explore the role of leptin in improving lung mechanics [22].
  • Peak torque adjusted for age, body mass, and fat free mass (measured by whole body plethysmography; the Bod Pod; Life Measurement Instruments; Concord, CA) was significantly greater for controls than for MS for three of four lower body muscle groups tested [23].
  • Maximal changes in lung volume (Delta VL(max)) from all piglets were highly correlated with Delta VL measured by RIP (in ml) = 1.01 x changes measured by whole body plethysmography - 0.35; r(2) = 0.95 [24].
