Title (EN) METHOD OF ASSESSMENT OF AIRWAY VARIABILITY IN AIRWAY HYPERRESPONSIVENESS
(FR) PROCEDE D'EVALUATION DE LA VARIABILITE DES VOIES AERIENNES DANS L'HYPERREACTIVITE DE CELLES-CI
Abstract: front page image
(EN)The invention relates to a method of assessing airway variability in airway responsiveness or asthma by measuring the variation of resistance (Rrs) by a forced oscillation technique utilizing either a single or a plurality of input frequencies during a plurality of respiratory cycles of a patient; calculating the statistical variability of the Rrs fçr the patient; and, correlating the statistical variability of the Rrs of the patient to a standard curve to quantify the degree of asthma of the patient. The invention also enables the effectiveness of a bronchoactive agent to be measured.
(FR)L'invention concerne un procédé d'évaluation de la variabilité des voies aériennes dans la réactivité de celles-ci ou de l'asthme et consistant à mesurer la variation de la résistance (Rrs) au moyen d'une technique d'oscillation forcée mettant en oeuvre soit une, soit une pluralité de fréquences d'entrée pendant une pluralité de cycles respiratoires d'un patient; à calculer la variabilité statistique du Rrs du patient; et à corréler la variabilité statistique du Rrs du patient avec une courbe normalisée, aux fins de quantification du degré d'asthme du patient. Le procédé selon l'invention permet également de mesurer l'efficacité d'un agent bronchoactif.
