Abstract

The purpose of this paper was to evaluate the use of air displacement plethysmography (ADP) in children and adolescents with cystic fibrosis (CF). Specifically, the primary aim of this study was to compare estimates of fat-free mass (FFM) measured from ADP and dual energy X-ray absorptiometry (DEXA) in children and adolescents with CF. The secondary aim was to compare the effect of using predicted thoracic gas volume (VTG) and measured VTG for the calculation of FFM by ADP in this population.
