- The bronchoprotective effect of deep inspiration is flow rate dependentGwen S Skloot
Division of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine, Department of Medicine, The Mount Sinai School of Medicine, New York, NY 10029, USA
Respir Med 101:1376-82. 2007..Deep inspiration (DI) protects against methacholine-induced bronchoconstriction in healthy subjects. We hypothesized that this bronchoprotective effect of DI depends upon the inspiratory flow rate...

Chest 135:492-8. 2009..We also determined the predictors of spirometric change between the two examinations...
- Impaired response to deep inspiration in obesityGwen Skloot
Division of Pulmonary, Critical Care and Sleep Medicine, Mount Sinai Medical Center, One Gustave L Levy Place, Box 1232, New York, NY 10029, USA
J Appl Physiol 111:726-34. 2011..We conclude that obesity is characterized by increased Mch responsiveness, predominantly of the small airways, due to a DI effect that renders the airways more sensitive to the stimulus...
- "Sarcoid like" granulomatous pulmonary disease in World Trade Center disaster respondersLaura E Crowley
Mount Sinai School of Medicine, One Gustave L Levy Place, New York, NY 10029, USA
Am J Ind Med 54:175-84. 2011..Studies on WTC firefighters have shown elevated rates of sarcoidosis. The main objective of this study was to report the incidence of "sarcoid like" granulomatous pulmonary disease in other WTC responders...
- Four-year calibration stability of the EasyOne portable spirometerGwen S Skloot
Mount Sinai School of Medicine, New York, New York, USA
Respir Care 55:873-7. 2010..The long-term stability of the volume and flow accuracy of a specific model of spirometer should be carefully characterized before modification of the frequency of calibration checks is considered for that model of spirometer...
- Effect of obesity on clinical presentation and response to treatment in asthmaAnne E Dixon
University of Vermont, Burlington, VT 05401, USA
J Asthma 43:553-8. 2006..Obese and non-obese asthmatics have similar lung function abnormalities, but comorbidities and altered responses to medications may significantly affect asthma control in obese people...
