The effect of acute respiratory infections on pulmonary function

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Repeated episodes of acute respiratory infections (ARI) occur commonly. Clinically the diseases are mostly self-limiting and therefore reports of pulmonary function tests during episodes of ARI in children are few in number. Recently persistent abnormality in pulmonary function after ARI, particularly severe lower respiratory tract infection in children, has been reported. These observations have led to the hypothesis that ARI in childhood is one of the factors responsible for the development of chronic obstructive airway disease in adults.
