DIAGNOSTIC PROGRAM FOR INVESTIGATING MUCOCILIAR TRANSPORT
IN PATIENTS WITH CHRONIC NONSPECIFIC DISEASES OF THE LUNGS
Indices of mucociliar transport: its rate and sputum reological properties were studied. Data indicative of close relation between mucociliar transport disorders and obstructive syndrome are presented. Possible mechanisms of bronchial patency impairment are discussed. A differential approach to therapy aimed at bronchial patency correction is exemplified clinically.
