Budesonide (800 mg bid, for 2 months) was administered to 12 asthmatic children (mean age, 11.2 9 3.3 years) with lung hyperinflation (TGV ] 130% predicted and/or RV]140% predicted) in a randomised, placebo controlled, double blind, crossover study. Body plethysmography (panting frequency controlled at 1·s , P B0.05). It was concluded that budesonide reduced lung hyperinflatio…
