"Advantages of mesh nebulisers include consistent and improved aerosol generation efficiency, a predominantly fine-particle fraction reaching into the peripheral lung, low residual volume
, and the ability to nebulise in low drug volumes," wrote Arzu Ari of Georgia State University's Department of Respiratory Therapy.
(17,18) Regurgitation and aspiration rates, often implicated in stroke-associated pneumonia, associated with NGT feeding were found to be less when the infusion rate was determined by a systematic assessment of gastric residual volume
. (12) Associated local traumatic lesions, as well as distant gastric traumatic lesions, occurred in a substantial number of patients fed by NGT.
at residual volume
. Similarly, BHTi was determined after taking in a full breath.
Generally, a normal post-micturition residual volume
is accepted as 50-200 mL in women (8).
All routine investigations including renal function tests, urine analysis and culture, ultrasonography to evaluate prostate size and post void residual volume
and pre-anaesthetic check were done.
Uroflowmetry and post-void residual volume
via bladder ultrasound was performed by clinic nurses and documented in the medical record.
Boys were told to void from a standing position into the uroflowmetry container and uroflowmetric parameters [Q.sub.max] (ml/sec), VT (sec), voided/expected volume ratio (VER), FC (bell shaped curve, staccato, interrupted, plateau), EMG activity during voiding, and post-void residual volume
ratio (PVRR) were recorded.
Secondary endpoints included effects on lung function parameters, as measured by residual volume
, forced expiratory volume in once second, and forced vital capacity.
demonstrated women with spontaneous vaginal delivery who received epidural analgesia had significant longer duration of labour and higher postpartum residual volume
In addition to the previously described limitations, spirometry does not provide residual volume
, which is pathologically altered in COPD.
Repeat CT was performed on first postoperative day, one week after surgery and at three months to assess the residual volume
of the abscess.
