EFFECT OF LASOLVAN ON THE MUCOCILIARY TRANSPORT
V. N. Solopov, N. A. Kolganova
The effect of a hemoptisic agent lasolvan on the parameters of mucociliary transport (the rate of bronchial content evacuation and sputum adhesion properties) was studied in patients with chronic non-specific pulmonary diseases. The rate of mucociliary transport was assessed by the time of excretion of the bronchial contents stained with an indicator substance (the patient’s own hemoglobin). Lasolvan adeguately restored bronchial drainage in patients with moderate disorders of mucociliary transport but failed to produce the same effect in the presence of serious disorders, which were referred to their decompensation.
