[dagger] Based on International Classification of Diseases, 10th Revision coding, including the following: malignant neoplasms: lip, oral cavity, pharynx (C00-C14), esophagus (C15), stomach (C16), pancreas (C25), larynx (C32), trachea, lung, bronchus (C33-C34), cervix uteri (C53), kidney and renal pelvis (C64-C65), urinary bladder (C67), and acute myeloid leukemia (C92.0); circulatory diseases: ischemic heart disease (I20-I25), other heart disease (I00-I09, I26-I51), cerebrovascular disease (I00-I69), atherosclerosis (I70-I71), aortic aneurysm (I71), and other arterial disease (I72-I78); respiratory diseases: pneumonia, influenza (J10-J18), bronchitis, emphysema (J40-J42, J43), and chronic airway obstruction
Chronic respiratory infections could also lead to bronchiectasis, which can also influence chronic airway obstruction
. We found increasing evidence of chronic airway obstruction
([FEV.sub.1]/ FVC%, PEF, [MEF.sub.25], [MEF.sub.50], [MEF.sub.75], and small airway hyperreactivity) and restriction (FVC, restrictive airway defect) with increasing quintiles of soil [.sup.137]Cs in the NCC children.
physicians for the 14 months ending in October 2002, patients diagnosed with pneumonia, chronic airway obstruction
, and skin infection had the highest incidence of comorbid diabetes, renal insufficiency, and hepatic insufficiency.
