For oxidation-reduction reactions, one equivalent donates or receives a mole of electrons and the equivalent weight is the ratio of the molecular weight to the number of electrons involved in the reaction.

Patient discussion about Wt

Q. what is the life expectancy of a person with chronic bronchioectasis

A. depends on how severe are the infections...how your body reacts to those infections and what is the cause of those infections (cystic fibrosis??). i think only the therapist treating you can estimate. and even so - there are ways to prevent recurring infections. can slow the process of destruction and even stop it completely.
