Resumen

Los autores estudian dos grupos, uno de 36 personas normales, y otro de 25 sujetos con sintomatología clínica y trazados espirográficos normales. Comparan los flujos (V) al 25, 50, 75 y 85% de la FVC en las curvas flujo volumen (MEFV) y las relaciones V˙75%/V˙50% y V˙85%/V˙50% de la FVC en los grupos mencionados. No detectan diferencias significativas entre ambos.

Estudian seguidamente los tiempos te-0-75%, te-25-75%, te-50-100% de la FVC espitOgráfica, y los flujos mesoespiratorios MMEF50-100 y MME75-100% espirográficos, y de nuevo los comparan entre ambos grupos con los mismos resultados.

Concluyen diciendo que este procedimiento no les ha servido para detectar la posible alteración (presumiblemente de pequeñas vías) que la sintomatología sugeriría en el grupo de patológicos.

Summary

The authors study two groups, one with 36 normal persons, and the other with 25 subjects with chronic clinic symptomatology and normal spirographic tracings. They compare the flows (V) to 25,50, 75 and 85% of the FVC in the flow volume curves (MEFV) and the relations V˙ 75%/V˙ 50% and V˙ 85%/V˙50% of the FVC in the two mentioned groups. No significant differences were found between them.

They then study the times te-0-79 te-25-79, te-50-100, te-75-100 graphic FVC and the mesospiratory MMEF50-100 priographic MMEF75-100 flows, and again compare both groups with the same results.

The authors conclude stating that this procedure was not useful for detecting the possible alteration (presumably of the small paths) that the symptomatology suggests in the group of pathological subjects.
