      Background: Bronchodilator response (BDR) analyzed by the raised volume rapid thoracic compression (RVRTC) in wheezing infants is not yet well described, although bronchodilators (BD) are routine in the treatment of this ...

    • Comparação das equações de valores de referência da função pulmonar mais utilizadas no Brasil: impacto no estadiamento da DPOC 

      Pereira, Marcella Cristiane Silveira [UNIFESP] (Universidade Federal de São Paulo (UNIFESP), 2010-06-30)
      Objective: To compare the absolute values of FVC and FEV1 found in a random sample of a Brazilian population over 40 years of age with values of equations most used in Brazil. To compare the values in percentage of predicted ...

    • Excess ventilation in COPD: Implications for dyspnoea and tolerance to interval exercise 

      Bravo, Daniela Manzoli [UNIFESP]; Gimenes, Ana Cristina Oliveira [UNIFESP]; Amorim, Beatriz Cyrillo [UNIFESP]; Alencar, Maria Clara Noman de [UNIFESP]; Berton, Danilo Cortozi [UNIFESP]; O'Donnell, Denis E.; Nery, Luiz Eduardo [UNIFESP]; Neder, Jose Alberto [UNIFESP] (Elsevier Science Bv, 2018)
      Interval exercise delays critical mechanical-ventilatory constraints with positive consequences on Dyspnoea and exercise tolerance in COPD. We hypothesized that those advantages of interval exercise would be partially ...
