Stephen's wide range of research interests included recovery after heavy exercise, sleep-disordered breathing, chemical influences on breathing, exercise-induced asthma, pulmonary mechanics in the hyperbaric environment (including effects on ventilation during exercise), the measurement of pulmonary gas exchange, the control of breathing during exercise, and impulse oscillometry
as a test of lung function.
Tenders are invited for Supply of impulse oscillometry
with essential accessories for dept of pulmonary medicine
Resting blood pressure (BP) was collected before the standard meal according to the 7th Brazilian Arterial Hypertension Guideline (Malachias, 2016) using the oscillometry
method (HEM-7200, OMRON, USA).
SAP is measured every minute by automated oscillometry
and maternal HR by finger pulse oximetry.
(8) Further, because of diagnostic challenges in children, impulse oscillometry
, where sound waves are used to detect airway changes (9); electromagnetic inductance plethysmography, where patients wear a volume-sensing vest to measure chest and abdominal volume changes (10); computed tomography scan"; and magnetic resonance imaging (11) are being evaluated for phenotyping.
For the current study, artery ageing/hardening was assessed in 597 participants using three indices: the peripheral augmentation index, evaluated by tonometry, and the cardio-ankle vascular index and pulse wave velocity measured by oscillometry
Blood pressure (BP) was taken using a validated oscillometry
device, the Omron HEM 705CPINT (Omron Co, Japan).
Liu, "Impulse oscillometry
provides an effective measure of lung dysfunction in 4-year-old children at risk for persistent asthma," Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology, vol.
during the first visit revealed a systemic blood pressure of 85 mmHg which ruled out hypertensive retinopathy.
They include Doppler ultrasound, applanation tonometry, oscillometry
, and magnetic resonance imaging; all of them are associated with its own strengths and weaknesses [2,12].
Lung functions were evaluated using impulse oscillometry
study in both groups.
All subjects had routine blood, pulmonary function tests (spirometry), and impulse oscillometry
(IOS) at Qilu Hospital of Shandong University.
