(12) The incidence of regurgitation and aspiration (18.8% and 17.5%, respectively) was higher in patients receiving a standard volume of enteral nutrition consisting of an initial infusion of 500 mL during the first 24 hours, progressively increasing to 1000 to 1500 mL in the second or third day, in comparison with patients for whom the infusion rate was adjusted based on gastric residual volumes (6.3% and 7.9%, respectively).
Furthermore, guidelines do not recommend routine bladder scanning for the diagnosis of PPUR, due to the size of the uterus after delivery, and the accuracy of USG measurements of residual volume is debatable (23,24).
Since this was a retrospective review, the timing of follow up was not consistent for every patient and some patients had incomplete documentation of uroflow, post-void residual volume, or urinary function.
MLD: mean lung density; FWHM: full width half max; LAV: low attenuation volume; VC: vital capacity; [FEV.sub.1]: forced expiratory volume in one second; [FEV.sub.1]%VC: Tiffeneau index; RV: residual volume; TLC: total lung capacity; [sR.sub.tot]: specific total airway resistance.
In our case bladder capacity of 365c and residual volume of 140 cc was reported by which urodynamic tests showed detrusor hyperreflexia.
However, the difference was not significant for voided volume (p=0.676), or post-void residual volume (p=0.771) in either position.
In order to detect the presence of air trapping in the lungs, lung volumes should be measured to determine the total lung capacity and the residual volume. However, since these methods are associated with increased medical costs and require sophisticated equipment, they are not widely utilized.
Gastric residual volume (GRV) measurement has been incorporated into specific guidelines for gastrointestinal function.

There was no significant difference in anxiety and depression scores and the postvoid residual volume of women with OAB and controls.
Since average residual volume of all cysts treated was 0.4 mL with a 95% mean volume loss and all cysts became invisible at six months, none of the cysts was palpable at end of the follow-up.
Good Nebulizer are where there is minimum wastage of aerosol and low residual volume. Only those drugs should be used which are advised in nebulization.
