Practicability of nitrogen multiple-breath washout measurements in a pediatric cystic fibrosis outpatient setting
Pediatric Pulmonology, 08/09/2012
Singer F et al. – Using available nitrogen (N2)multiple–breath washout (MBW) equipment, lung clearance index (LCI) measurements are practical and fast in children. LCI is correlated with markers of CF lung disease. Longer timeframes would be required for triplicate N2MBW tests in inexperienced children.
