Associations of Maximal Expiratory Flow Rate with chemical compounds

  • The anti-pyretic effect of MEFR was comparable to that of paracetamol (150 mg/kg body wt., p.o.), a standard anti-pyretic agent [8].
  • We have measured in 16 healthy volunteers (mean +/- SD age, 23.7 +/- 1.6 yr) specific airway conductance (SGaw), maximal inspiratory (MIFR) and expiratory (MEFR) flow rates before and 15, 35, and 45 min after extensive upper airway anesthesia (UAA) with 10% lidocaine [9].
  • At the 1-, 3-, 6- and 15-minute intervals the response to the isoproterenol dose was significantly greater than the response to the SCH 1000 dose for FEV1, FVC and MEFR [10].
