Serum carotene levels before and after oral administration of carotene and quantitative fecal fat excretion were measured in 158 patients. Low levels of serum carotene did not reliably select the patient with steatorrhea since values less than 70μg/100 ml were associated with normal fecal fat...
Bronchodilator effect was objectively evaluated in ten patients with stable asthma, using spirometry and body plethysmography in a double-blind, double-cross-over study after 170μg of albuterol or isoproterenol sulfate was administered as an aerosol. Baseline values of the seven spirometric and...
Auscultation of the abdomen in a consecutive series of 500 patients demonstrated that 18% of normal people had vascular murmurs. In the age group under 25, 44% had murmurs. These physiologic murmurs arise from the abdominal aorta at the epigastrium and from the interior vena cava. Aortic murmurs...
