  1. 1. Towards Improved Diagnostics and Monitoring in Childhood Asthma Methodological and Clinical Aspects of Exhaled NO and Forced Oscillation Technique

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Charlotte Heijkenskjöld Rentzhog; Uppsala universitet.; [2016]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; asthma; children; exhaled NO; forced oscillation technique; airway inflammation; small airways; asthma diagnostics; Pediatrik; Pediatrics; Lungmedicin; Lung Medicine;

    Abstract : Background: Asthma is a heterogeneous disease. Diagnosis relies on symptom evaluation and lung function tests using spirometry. Symptoms can be vague. Spirometry is effort-dependent and does not reliably evaluate small airways. READ MORE

  2. 2. Exahaled NO and small airway function in asthma and cystic fibrosis

    University dissertation from Göteborg : University of Gothenburg

    Author : Christina Keen; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2010]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; asthma; exhaled NO; children; cystic fibrosis; flow independent exhaled nitric oxide; multiple breath inert gas washout; polyunsaturated fatty acids;

    Abstract : Background: Asthma and cystic fibrosis (CF) are chronic inflammatory airway disorders known to involve the peripheral airways. Non-invasive tests sensitive to peripheral airway function and inflammation are therefore of high priority. READ MORE

  3. 3. Nitric Oxide Exchange in Central and Peripheral Airways Determinants in Health and Respiratory Disease

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Andrei Malinovschi; Uppsala universitet.; [2008]
    Keywords : exhaled nitric oxide; alveolar NO; bronchial NO flux; extended NO analysis; asthma; smoking; snus; IgE-sensitization; pharyngo-oral tract; nitrate; nitrite; pulmonary hypertension;

    Abstract : Background: Exhaled nitric oxide (NO) is a marker of eosinophilic steroid-sensitive inflammation in the airways of patients with respiratory disease. Moreover, information about the localization of inflammation in the respiratory tree is obtained by estimates of bronchial and alveolar contributions to exhaled NO. READ MORE

  4. 4. Exhaled markers of oxidative stress in the airways

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Mona Lärstad; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2004]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; exhaled air; exhaled breath condensate; malondialdehyde; 3-nitrotyrosine; ethane; pentane; isoprene; oxidative stress; airways; inflammation;

    Abstract : Breath contains a number of different molecules, some of which may have potential use as markers for oxidative stress in the airways during chronic airway inflammation. The major objectives were to develop and validate methods for quantifying five potential exhaled markers of oxidative stress: malondialdehyde (MDA) and free 3-nitrotyrosine (3-NT) in exhaled breath condensate (EBC) and ethane, pentane and isoprene in exhaled air, and to test the applicability of the methods.

  5. 5. Exhaled Nitric Oxide in epidemiological and experimental studies

    University dissertation from Göteborg

    Author : Anna-Carin Olin; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2002]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Nitric oxide; exhaled air; nasal nitric oxide; ozone; pulp-mill; gassings; nitrate; atopy; sensitization; asthma; rhinitis; bronchiolitis;

    Abstract : The overall purpose with this thesis has been to contribute to the assessment of theutility of exhaled nitric oxide (eNO) in epidemiological studies. The specific aims have been toinvestigate whether eNO increases after occupational exposure to high peaks of ozone, or afterexperimental exposure to ozone in ambient concentrations. READ MORE
