Spirometry. Bronchodilator with Salbutamol. Induced sputum in > 10 years of age using Sodium Chloride Inhalation. Multiple Breath Washout (MBW).
Drug: Sodium Chloride Inhalation
Spirometry: all subjects Plethysmography and exhaled nitric oxide: >6 years Multiple Breath Washout: Tidal breathing using a facemask <9 years or mouthpiece >9 years. Wash-in phase: gas mixture containing 4% SF6, 4% He, 21% oxygen and balance nitrogen inhaled until steady state. Bias flow stopped during expiration by removal of T-piece. Wash-out phase: patient inspires room air and exhales tracer gas until SF6 reaches <0.1%.
Bronchodilator response: Bronchodilator (Salbutamol 400 mcg) to asthma subjects, spirometry and MBW repeated after 15 minutes.
Induced sputum in asthma subjects >10 yrs. Post-bronchodilator spirometry, subject inhales concentrations of 3, 4 and 5% hypertonic saline for 7 minutes for 3 cycles until expectorating sputum.
Other Name: Salt, NaCl
- Lung Clearance Index (LCI) [ Time Frame: Day 1 ]Lung clearance index will be compared between healthy and asthmatic patients after they have performed Pulmonary Function Testing and Multiple Breath Washout
- Correlation of sputum cell counts with LCI [ Time Frame: Day 1 ]Sputum induction for specimen collection
- Effect of bronchodilator on baseline and post-spirometry LCI [ Time Frame: Day 1 ]
Biospecimen Retention: Samples Without DNA
