Uroflowmetry showed a maximal flow rate ([Q.sub.max]) of 5.1 mL/s, average flow rate ([Q.sub.ave]) of 1.6 mL/s, voiding volume of 200 cc, PVR of 380 cc, and plateau voiding pattern.
Following the completion of the EVH challenge maximal flow volume loops were measured in duplicate at 3, 5, 7, 10 and 15 minutes with the best [FEV.sub.1] for each time point being recorded.
In the present study, a smooth profile of hydraulic heads was assigned beneath the ice-sheet so that permafrost does not influence the maximal flow rate.
The rest flow before heating, maximal flow in response to heating, and time to maximal flow were assessed from the capillary flow curves recorded [9].
Several other rules were also proposed to improve the estimation accuracy, like the "maximal flow fraction rule," the "maximal flow-intercepting rule," and so on (for details, see [1-5]).
Methods: The study retrospectively evaluated 160 men and 23 women, aged >40 years and with a detrusor pressure at maximal flow rate (P [sub]det Q [sub]max) of ≥40 cmH [sub]2 O in men, who underwent urodynamic testing.
