Pulmonary Function Abnormalities in Symptom-free Children After Bronchiolitis

Pulmonary Function Abnormalities in Symptom-free Children After Bronchiolitis <jats:p>Twenty-three children less than 18 months old who had clinical and radiological evidence of bronchiolitis and remained symptom-free thereafter were studied to determine pulmonary function ten years later. Abnormal PaO2, Viso V and RV/TLC ratio were found in the majority of subjects, and 31.3% had abnormalities in all three tests; four and one-half percent had exercise-induced bronchospasm. These changes indicate a residual parenchymal or airways lesion following bronchiolitis.</jats:p> http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Pediatrics CrossRef
