  • Identification of a predominant COPD phenotype in clinical practice. [Journal Article]
    Respir Med. 2008 Mar; 102(3):367-76.Pistolesi M, Camiciottoli G, … Giuntini C
  • CONCLUSIONS: Patients with COPD can be assigned a clinical phenotype reflecting the prevalent mechanism of airflow limitation. The standardized identification of the predominant phenotype may permit to clinically characterize COPD beyond its unifying spirometric definition.

  • Congenital diaphragmatic hernia beyond infancy. [Journal Article]
    Am J Surg. 1991 Dec; 162(6):643-6.Weber TR, Tracy T, … Westfall S
  • Congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) is a common cause of severe respiratory distress in the newborn. However, the presentation of CDH in older children and adults is rare, and, therefore, little is known concerning its symptoms, operative management, and postoperative complications. Thirteen patients (age range: 2 months to 26 years; 5 males, 8 females) presented with CDH. Four patients had rig…
  • Serological response of experimental ponies orally infected with Ehrlichia risticii. [Journal Article]
    Equine Vet J Suppl. 1989 JunPalmer JE, Benson CE, Lotz GW
  • Ten healthy, mature ponies were orally infected with Ehrlichia risticii using Ehrlichia-infected P388D1 mouse monocyte tissue culture cells. Seven developed signs of equine ehrlichial colitis including fever, depression, anorexia, reduced borborygmi, increased abdominal hyperresonance, and diarrhoea. Three remained clinically normal apart from early fever in one. Indirect fluorescent antibody tit…
  • Scintigraphic images of Swyer-James syndrome. [Case Reports]
    Eur J Nucl Med. 1988; 14(4):217-9.Köbernik R, Savaser AN, … Grassot A
  • The Swyer-James Syndrome, first described in 1953, is a rare entity which consists of severe oligemia of one or more pulmonary lobes accompanied with bronchial deformation. Recurrent bronchial infections in childhood are believed to be the cause, leading to obliteration of small airways, alveolar overdistension and, ultimately, the destructive changes characteristic of emphysema. Secondary vascul…
  • Dyspnea in the patient with cardiopulmonary disease. [Journal Article]
    Heart Lung. 1975 Jul-Aug; 4(4):599-606.Butler EK
  • Dyspnea in the patient with cardiopulmonary disease has been defined and discussed, emphasizing those conditions which increase the work of breathing: increased elastic resistance; increased airway obstruction; and deformities of the chest wall, lung, and pleura. Methods of assessing the cardiopulmonary status of the patient as it relates to each condition were presented. Determining and understa…
