Airway Resistance after Exercise Loading Test in Asthmatic Children
Ji Eun Lee, Young Mi Hong, Kyung Hee Kim
J Korean Pediatr Soc. 1994;37(10):1333-1339.   Published online October 15, 1994
Exercise induced asthma(EIA) is defined as acute, reversible, usually self-immiting airway obstruction which develop after strenous exercise in patients with asthma. EIA is a bigger problem in children than adults due to more active and smaller airways which obstruct more easily when bronchospasm develops. The exercise elicited amny change in pulmonary function of asthmatic children. These change could be measured...
Right Ventricular Area, Dimension, and Volume Measured by Two-dimensional Echocardiography in Normal Children
I-Seok Kang, Jung-Yun Choi
J Korean Pediatr Soc. 1994;37(10):1340-1349.   Published online October 15, 1994
The usefulness of two-dimensional echocardiography to measure the right ventricular volume was assessed in 58 normal children(mean age 5 years and 3 months). From the apical 4-chamber view(A4CV), the subcostal RV sagittal view(SCRVSV), the subcostal right anterior oblique view(SCRAOV), and the subcostal RV coronal view(SCRVCV), the dimensions and areas of the right ventricle were measured. The right ventricular volumes and...
