IOS is a very useful tool in measuring the mechanical properties of lung, which helps in diagnosis and monitoring the progress of disease. The state-of-art for lung function testing. Korean J Pediatr ; However, plethysmography may be difficult for some subjects, because it entails sitting in a sealed cabin during testing. Impulse oscillometry in obstructive airway diseases.

Reference impusle in children to cm in height and 3 to 10 years of age.

Impulse oscillometry: The state-of-art for lung function testing

The representative impedance curve was normal, without significant reversibility. More than 50 years ago, FOT was first determined by Dubois et al 5 and has developed with regard to configuration, standardization, and application.

Impulse oscillometry IOS is a variant of forced oscillation technique, described by Dubois over 50 years ago, which permits passive measurement of lung mechanics. Clinical application of forced oscillation. The impulse oscillation technique applied for measurements of respiratory function in young children.

He was able to perform IOS on repeated clinic visits without incident. However, oscillmoetry forceful expiratory and inspiratory maneuvers of spirometry require patient cooperation and physical capacity that is usually lacking in young children below 4 years age, elderly, and those with physical and cognitive limitations.


Impulse oscillometry: interpretation and practical applications.

IOS has also been shown to be effective in monitoring asthma. Gosselink R, Stam H, editors. Prevalence of obstructive lung disease in a general population sample: Authors have nothing to disclose. Journal List Lung India v.

Influence of upper airway shunt on total respiratory impedance in infants. Open in a separate window.

Abstract Objective To provide an overview of impulse oscillometry and its application to the evaluation of children with diseases of ooscillometry airways. The main difference is that in FOT, the sound waves of different frequencies were transmitted sequentially, whereas in IOS, an impulse, which can be mathematically decomposed into different frequencies, is transmitted.

Articles from Lung India: Reference values for respiratory system impedance using impulse oscillometry in healthy preschool children.

Impulse oscillometry: interpretation and practical applications.

It has been used to study various respiratory disorders, especially asthma and is suitable for measuring bronchodilatory response as well as bronchoprovocation testing. This helps prevent measurement inaccuracies.

Reference values for respiratory system impedance using impulse oscillometry in immpulse preschool children. If airway hyperreactivity is being assessed, ocsillometry bronchodilator is administered, and a similar number of measurements in the same fashion are then taken. Statistical determinant of imuplse trial-to-trial variability serving as an index of reproducibility. Conclusions Impulse oscillometry provides a rapid, noninvasive measure of airway impedance. Table 1 shows a comparison of the predictive equations published in different populations.


Resistance is determined when a pressure wave is unopposed by airway recoil and is in phase with airflow. This point is referred to as the resonant frequency and is dependent on the physical properties of chest size and tissue composition. Since, the elastic properties of lungs majorly reside at the periphery, at low frequencies, the capacitance component dominate, and total lung reactance is negative, whereas, at higher frequencies, the inertia of the air column in larger airways dominates making the total reactance positive [ Figure 3b ].

Impulse oscillometry in the evaluation of diseases of the airways in children

It has been correlated at low frequencies with peripheral airway obstruction and is computed from pressure out of phase with flow. Resistance is independent of the frequency in healthy subjects. B, Eight-year-old boy performing IOS. One need to have a dedicated laboratory to perform the test and it is not possible to use in the field studies.
