Dose-Response Relationship and Irreversible Obstructive Ventilatory Defect: Clinical Evaluations and Corticosteroid Treatment
waseltory posted:
All patients received routine physical examination, chest radiograph, and biochemistry evaluation. Some patients with obstructive lung disease received corticosteroid treatment with prednisolone, 1 mg/kg, for at least 2 months, as well as bron-chodilators. Some patients with obstructive lung disease received only bronchodilators without corticosteroid treatment, because of reservations regarding the use of steroids.
Follow-up Study of Spirometry and Dyspnea 22 to 24 Months After Beginning Consumption of S androgynus
Because the medical treatment is not effective, many patients with obstructive ventilatory defect were unavailable for follow-up at our out patient clinic. About 22 to 24 months after patients began consumption of the vegetable, we called them and asked about whether the present dyspnea symptom was improved, stationary, or worse than it was during the initial visit period, and we also encouraged these patients to come to our medical center again for follow-up spirometry. The follow-up spirometry was performed when the patients were in long-term stable condition without acute exacerbation. The pulmonary function was defined as being deteriorated if the follow-up FEVX was 12% and 0.1 L lower than the previous FEV1 measured about 5 to 6 months after patients began consumption of the vegetable, and it was defined as being improved if the follow-up FEVX was 12% and 0.1 L higher than the previous FEV^ The pulmonary function was considered stationary if the follow-up FEV1 was between the above two categories. itat on
