Conference paper


In allen Bereichen der Pädiatrie ist eine Standardisierung der diagnostischen Untersuchungsverfahren erforderlich. Für den Fachbereich der Pädiatrie ergeben sich besondere Probleme bei der Indikationsstellung und Durchführung von Atemprovokationstests. Bei der Interpretation der Ergebnisse ist eine große Zahl von Faktoren zu berücksichtigen.
