  4. Indoor air modification interventions for prolonged non-specific cough in children.

    Cochrane database of systematic reviews (3):CD005075 (2006) PMID 16856075

    Non-specific cough has been defined as non-productive cough in the absence of identifiable respiratory disease or known aetiology and is common in childhood. These children are treated with a variety of therapies, including non-pharmacological treatments. There is a wide variety and a growing ma...
  5. Anticholinergic drugs for wheeze in children under the age of two years.

    Cochrane database of systematic reviews (3):CD001279 (2005) PMID 16034861

    Wheeze in infancy and early childhood is common and appears to be increasing though the magnitude of any increase is unclear. Most wheezing episodes in infancy are precipitated by respiratory viral infections. Treatment of very young children with wheeze remains controversial. Anti-cholinergics ...
  6. Anticholinergic drugs for wheeze in children under the age of two years.

Most wheezing episodes in infancy are precipitated by respiratory viral infections. Treatment of very young children with wheeze remains controversial. Anti-cholinergics ...
  7. Pharmacopoeial quality of drugs supplied by Nigerian pharmacies.

    The Lancet 357(9272):1933 (2001) PMID 11425415

    The quality of medicines available in some less-developed countries is inadequate in terms of content of active ingredient. Reasons for the poor quality of drugs include widespread counterfeiting of medicines in less-developed countries, excessive decomposition of active ingredient as a result o...
  8. The effect of ribavirin to treat previously healthy infants admitted with acute bronchiolitis on acute and chronic respiratory morbidity.

    Respiratory Medicine 95(4):275 (2001) PMID 11316109

    The role of ribavirin in the treatment of acute bronchiolitis is controversial. It has been suggested that the use of ribavirin may be of benefit during the acute illness and may reduce subsequent recurrent respiratory morbidity. This randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study was design...
  9. Immunogenicity and reactogenicity of a group C meningococcal conjugate vaccine compared with a group A+C meningococcal polysaccharide vaccine in adolescents in a randomised observer-blind controlled trial.

    Vaccine 18(24):2686 (2000) PMID 10781855

    This study evaluated the immunogenicity and reactogenicity of a group C meningococcal conjugate vaccine (MenC) compared with a group A+C meningococcal polysaccharide vaccine (MenPS) in healthy adolescents. Subjects were randomised to receive one dose of either MenC (n=92) or MenPS (n=90). Group ...
  10. Anti-cholinergic drugs for wheeze in children under the age of two years.

    Cochrane database of systematic reviews (2):CD001279 (2000) PMID 10796630

    Wheeze in infancy and early childhood is common and appears to be increasing though the magnitude of any increase is unclear.

  11. Comparison of propofol with isoflurane for maintenance of anesthesia in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease: Use of pulmonary mechanics, peak flow rates, and blood gases

    Journal of Cardiothoracic and Vascular Anesthesia 9(1):24 (1995)

    Patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) are usually anesthetized with an inhalation agent. After Institutional Review Board approval, informed consent was obtained from 60 patients with moderate to severe COPD according to a preoperative severity scoring system, which too...
  12. Analysis of cells obtained by bronchial lavage of infants with respiratory syncytial virus infection.

    Archives of Disease in Childhood 71(5):428 (1994) PMID 7826113 PMCID PMC1030058

    To study the cellular infiltrate that occurs within the airways of infants with respiratory syncytial virus bronchiolitis, samples of airways secretions were obtained by bronchial lavage from the lower respiratory tract of infants ventilated for this condition and from the upper airway of non-in...

    Archives of Disease in Childhood 67(5):580 (1992) PMID 1599292 PMCID PMC1793709

    There is much interest in the use of holding chambers with an attached facemask to deliver aerosols from metered dose inhalers to infants. In order to study the influence of various design factors on the dose inhaled at different tidal volumes, a model was constructed in which a Starling ventila...
  16. Drug delivery from jet nebulisers.

    Archives of Disease in Childhood 67(5):586 (1992) PMID 1599293 PMCID PMC1793736

    Maximising the rate of drug delivered in particles small enough to reach the lower respiratory tract from jet nebulisers may allow treatment times to be reduced and thus improve the acceptability of this form of treatment, particularly in very young patients. The role of various technical factor...
  17. Inhaled budesonide for chronic wheezing under 18 months of age.

    Archives of Disease in Childhood 67(3):285 (1992) PMID 1575550 PMCID PMC1793643

    The role of budesonide in controlling chest symptoms in infants was assessed. It was administered from a metered dose inhaler into a large volume spacer (Nebuhaler) with attached Laerdal mask. Twenty nine infants were recruited into a double blind crossover trial. Five defaulted. The remaining 2...
