Aim: To study the disease control via pulmonary function test with usage of bronchodilators in bronchial asthma patients.

Setting and design: Prospective cohort study done at Asthma clinic, Dept of pediatrics, BJ medical college, Ahmedabad.

Materials and Methods: Patients enrolled in this study were from asthma clinic BJ medical college and Civil hospital. Pulmonary function test was done on total of 91 known asthma patients. Here three parameter of lung function is taken in to account. Percentage OD FEV1 of predicted, FEV1:FVC Ratio and PEFR , its effect on bronchodilators on PEFR.

Results: Out of 91 patients, 72 (79.25%) patients had almost normal pulmonary function. Only 1 patient had severe restriction of pulmonary function and 18 patients had moderate restriction of lung function. All patients shows improvement in PEFR more than 20% after bronchodilators therapy which is suggestive of reversible air flow limitation.

Keywords: PEFR; FEV1; FVC

Abbrevations: PEFR: Peak Expiratory Flow Rate; FEV1-Functional Vital Capacity at 1 second; FVC: Functional Vital Capacity
