How can you use “airway” in a sentence? Here are some example sentences to help you improve your vocabulary:

  • Both t PTEF and t E will influence the final value of the ratio t PTEF / t E . In a patient with airway obstruction, slow exhalation secondary to an increased expiration time constant will increase t E . In addition, active breaking is diminished, leading to decreased t PTEF . Both these mechanisms result in a low t PTEF / t E value in a patient with airway obstruction.

  • If elevated salt concentrations exist within these secretions [ 5 6 ] , they would inhibit α and β-defensins, endogenous antibacterial peptides produced by neutrophils and airway epithelia, respectively [ 2 3 12 13 14 15 ] . This last point is still under review as recent evidence suggests that CF airway surface fluid may be isotonic not hypertonic [ 16 ] .

  • We previously demonstrated that the chemokines IL-8, MCP-1 and RANTES are differentially regulated in A549 airway epithelial cells [ 35 36 37 38 ] . To further elucidate the mechanisms of chemokine expression in A549, we have compared the induction of IL-8, MCP-1 and RANTES by RSV infection with that of TNFα.
