Exercise testing for diagnosing and monitoring childhood asthma
Exercise testing for bronchial hyperreactivity is an important diagnostic tool in childhood asthma.
We have a database containing information regarding outcome of approx. 100 exercise tests conducted in the pediatric asthma outpatient clinic. This project concerns an analysis and description of A) predictors of a successful vs. non-succesful test, and B) predictors of a positive vs. negative test outcome.
Chest X-ray for diagnosing pneumonia in children
Most children with pneumonia can be diagnosed and treated solely based on their clinical presentation without a chest X-ray. However, many children with pneumonia symptoms have a X-ray done. We have data on all children with a pneumonia diagnosis in a winter season in the pediatric ED, which can be merged with all X-rays conducted in the same period. This project aims to describe, which children underwent X-ray and the therapeutic consequences of the X-ray result.
At COPSAC there are a lot of possibilities for conducting clinic birth cohort studies in the logitudinal mother-child cohorts COPSAC2000 and COPSAC2010.
