(Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2010-01-01)
Background: The body mass index/airflow obstruction/dyspnea/exercise capacity (BODE) index and global initiative for chronic obstructive]on, disease (GOLD) staging system are validated measures to define disease severity ...
Treatment, outcomes and costs of asthma exacerbations in Chilean children: a prospective multicenter observational study
(Elsevier Doyma, 2019)
© 2018 SEICAPObjective: To describe potential regional variations in therapies for severe asthma exacerbations in Chilean children and estimate the associated health expenditures. Methods: Observational prospective cohort ...
Predicting High Risk Of Exacerbations In Bronchiectasis: The E-faced Score
(Dove Medical Press LtdAlbany, 2017)
Assessment of Aerobic Exercise Adverse Effects during COPD Exacerbation Hospitalization
Introduction. Aerobic exercise performed after hospital discharge for exacerbated COPD patients is already recommended to improve respiratory and skeletal muscle strength, increase tolerance to activity, and reduce the ...
Longitudinal Follow-Up of Bipolar Disorder in Women With Premenstrual Exacerbation: Findings From STEP-BD
(AMER PSYCHIATRIC PUBLISHING, INC, 2011)
Objective: The impact of hormonal fluctuation during the menstrual cycle on the course of bipolar disorder is poorly understood. The authors determined the course of illness and time to relapse of bipolar disorder in ...
Etiology and biomarkers of systemic inflammation in mild to moderate COPD exacerbations Etiología y biomarcadores de inflamación sistémica en las exacerbaciones leves a moderadas de la enfermedad pulmonar obstructiva crónica
Background: The etiology of acute exacerbations of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is heterogeneous and still under discussion. Inflammation increases during exacerbation of COPD. The identification of ...
Influence of b2-adrenergic receptor polymorphisms on asthma exacerbation in children with severe asthma regularly receiving salmeterol
Background: New evidence suggests that different β2-adrenergic receptor (β2AR) polymorphisms may influence asthma control in patients receiving long-acting β2-agonists (LABAs) as regular therapy. Objectives: To determine ...
Feasibility of Early Detection of Cystic Fibrosis Acute Pulmonary Exacerbations by Exhaled Breath Condensate Metabolomics: A Pilot Study
(American Chemical Society, 2017-02)
Progressive lung function decline and, ultimately, respiratory failure are the most common cause of death in patients with cystic fibrosis (CF). This decline is punctuated by acute pulmonary exacerbations (APEs), and in ...
Influence of the exacerbation of patellofemoral pain on trunk kinematics and lower limb mechanics during stair negotiation
Background: Although it is assumed that the presence of patellofemoral pain (PFP) may result in compensatory behaviors that can alter trunk kinematics and lower limb mechanics, the influence of the exacerbation of ...
Mechanisms of worsening gas exchange during acute exacerbations of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease
This study was undertaken to investigate the mechanisms that determine abnormal gas exchange during acute exacerbations of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Thirteen COPD patients, hospitalized because of an ...
