  • StatPearls: Physiology, Lung [BOOK]
    StatPearls Publishing: Treasure Island (FL) Haddad Moshe M Michigan State University Sharma Sandeep S Baptist Regional Medical Center BOOK
  • The lungs are the foundational organs of the respiratory system, whose most basic function is to facilitate gas exchange from the environment into the bloodstream. Oxygen gets transported through the alveoli into the capillary network, where it can enter the arterial system, ultimately to perfuse tissue. The respiratory system is composed primarily of the nose, oropharynx, larynx, trachea, bronch…
  • Singing as an adjunct therapy for children and adults with cystic fibrosis. [Review]
    Cochrane Database Syst Rev 2019; 7:CD008036Irons JY, Petocz P, … Chang AB
  • CONCLUSIONS: There is insufficient evidence to determine the effects of singing on quality of life or on the respiratory parameters in people with cystic fibrosis. However, there is growing interest in non-medical treatments for cystic fibrosis and researchers may wish to investigate the impact of this inexpensive therapy on respiratory function and psychosocial well-being further in the future.
  • Clinical significance of the bronchodilator response in children with severe asthma. [Journal Article]
    Pediatr Pulmonol 2019Coverstone AM, Bacharier LB, … Castro M
  • CONCLUSIONS: Lung function, that is FEV1 % predicted, is a predictor of BD response in children with asthma. Additionally, smoke exposure, higher FeNO or IgE level, and low peripheral blood neutrophils are associated with a greater likelihood of BD reversibility. BD response can identify a phenotype of pediatric asthma associated with low lung function and poor asthma control.
  • What is a COPD-Like Spirometry Test Result in Resource Constrained Settings? [Journal Article]
    COPD 2019; :1-2Gianella GE, Miranda JJ, Hurst JR
  • The diagnosis of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), a global health problem, is challenging in resource-constrained settings. Spirometry with an obstructive pattern after the administration of bronchodilators is required for the diagnosis of COPD. Existing COPD treatment guidelines, largely derived from studies performed in populations of cigarette-smokers, recommend pharmacologic inte…
