Physical activity during and after a severe acute exacerbation of COPD
(European Respiratory Soc Journals Ltd, 2021-09-05)
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 ...
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 ...
Salbutamol and ipratropium by inhaler is superior to nebulizer in children with severe acute asthma exacerbation: Randomized clinical trial
Introduction: In moderate-severe asthma exacerbation, salbutamol by inhaler (MDI) issuperior to salbutamol delivered by nebulizer (NEB); however, to our knowledge, nostudies in children with exclusively severe exacerbations ...
Early Detection of Cystic Fibrosis Acute Pulmonary Exacerbations by Exhaled Breath Condensate Metabolomics
(American Chemical Society, 2019-10)
The most common cause of death in cystic fibrosis (CF) patients is progressive lung function decline, which is punctuated by acute pulmonary exacerbations (APEs). A major challenge is to discover biomarkers for detecting ...
Treatment of adults with community-acquired respiratory tract infections: results of a multicentric clinical trial with gatifloxacin
(Brazilian Society of Infectious Diseases, 2002-08-01)
Respiratory tract infections have an important clinical and economic impact and they are the most common indication for antibiotic use in outpatient practice. This prospective, multicenter non-controlled trial assessed the ...
Acute exacerbation of interstitial lung disease as a sequela of COVID-19 pneumonia
Interstitial lung disease (ILD) is a heterogeneous group of disorders characterized by dyspnea and bilateral infiltrations of the lung. While some cases are idiopathic (e.g., idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis), others are ...
Medidas hemodinâmicas aórticas e rigidez arterial em pacientes com DPOC e associação com perfil clínico e funcional na exacerbação aguda e no período de recuperação
(Universidade Federal de São CarlosUFSCarPrograma de Pós-Graduação em Fisioterapia - PPGFtCâmpus São Carlos, 2018-02-02)
Background: Acute exacerbation of COPD negatively affects the disease, impairs lung function, functional capacity and health status and increases the risk for the development of cardiovascular diseases (CVD), and the ...
