  • ANTENATAL CORTICOSTEROIDS DECREASE FORCED VITAL CAPACITY IN INFANTS BORN FULLTERM. [Journal Article]
    Pediatr Pulmonol. 2020 Jul 03 [Online ahead of print]Bandyopadhyay A, Slaven J, … Tepper RS
  • Antenatal corticosteroids (ACS) administration to pregnant women for threatened preterm labor is standard obstetric care to reduce neonatal respiratory distress syndrome and the associated respiratory morbidity. While ACS stimulates surfactant production in the fetal lung, the effects of ACS upon the subsequent growth and development of the lung are unclear. Follow-up studies outside of the neona…
  • Multiple Factor Analysis of Depression and/or Anxiety in Patients with Acute Exacerbation Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease. [Journal Article]
    Int J Chron Obstruct Pulmon Dis. 2020; 15:1449-1464.Long J, Ouyang Y, … Sun D
  • CONCLUSIONS: Depression and anxiety should not be ignored in patients with AECOPD. The severity and quality of life of COPD were closely related to the occurrence of depression and/or anxiety symptoms. In most cases, perhaps depression and anxiety in AECOPD are only symptoms and not to the extents of the diseases. RDW had clinical diagnostic value in AECOPD combined with depression and/or anxiety. NLR, PLR, MLR, and RDW may become the novel indicators for evaluating the degree of inflammation of AECOPD and deserve further research.
  • COPD Overdiagnosis and Its Effect on 30-Day Hospital Readmission Rates. [Journal Article]
    Respir Care. 2020 Jun 30 [Online ahead of print]Rice RD, Han X, … Al-Jaghbeer MJ
  • CONCLUSIONS: COPD was overdiagnosed in our cohort of subjects; this was true whether the FEV1/FVC < 0.70 standard or the lower limit of normal standard was used. Furthermore, this overdiagnosis artificially inflated the 30-d readmission rate. These results illustrate the caution providers should use when making a COPD diagnosis.
  • Impact of coronavirus disease 2019 on pulmonary function in early convalescence phase. [Journal Article]
    Respir Res. 2020 Jun 29; 21(1):163.Huang Y, Tan C, … Liu J
  • CONCLUSIONS: Impaired diffusing-capacity, lower respiratory muscle strength, and lung imaging abnormalities were detected in more than half of the COVID-19 patients in early convalescence phase. Compared with non-severe cases, severe patients had a higher incidence of DLCO impairment and encountered more TLC decrease and 6MWD decline.
  • Lung Function Testing and Prediction Equations in Adult Population from Maputo, Mozambique. [Journal Article]
    Int J Environ Res Public Health. 2020 Jun 24; 17(12)Ivanova O, Khosa C, … Rachow A
  • Background: Local spirometric prediction equations are of great importance for interpreting lung function results and deciding on the management strategies for respiratory patients, yet available data from African countries are scarce. The aim of this study was to collect lung function data using spirometry in healthy adults living in Maputo, Mozambique and to derive first spirometric prediction…
  • Gateway and journey of patients with cardiac amyloidosis. [Journal Article]
