There are many sources of error inherent in testing a patient's DLCO, including variation in breath holding time, low inspiratory capacity and variable inspiratory flow rates, insufficient time between maneuvers, improper hemoglobin and carboxyhomoglobin corrections, choosing inappropriate equations or nomagrams for predicted values, patients cardiac output status, predicted equations and calculations, altitude considerations, test gas quality and tank pressure, demand valve resistance, gas analyzer accuracy, valve integrity and function, among others, [ILLUSTRATION OMITTED] There are many other factors that influence DLCO.
A brief description of our term turbinoplasty: (a) the inferolateral resection of inferior turbinate with preservation of the mucosa of the medial aspect of the inferior turbinate to facilitate the entry of inspired air more into the inferior meatus than into the middle meatus (this physiologically increases the inspiratory flow rate along the inferior meatus).
Highlights from the data presented at Respiratory Drug Delivery 2012 include: * iSPERSE formulations were created containing levofloxacin that yielded powders that were composed of small, relatively dense and dispersible particles, potentially allowing for the delivery of large masses across a range of inspiratory flow rates via a simple, passive dry powder inhaler leading to faster and more convenient administration.
