This article reviews the current literature regarding established and proposed EE-GERD, reporting on all available options for its correct diagnosis and therapeutic management. Expert opinion: MII-pH could help to identify a hidden GERD that causes EE. Unfortunately, standard MII-pH analysis results are often unable to define this association. New parameters such as the mean nocturnal baseline impedance and post-reflux swallow-induced peristaltic wave index may have an improved diagnostic yield, but prospective studies using impedance-pH are needed.

Publication date: Available online 19 July 2019Source: SteroidsAuthor(s): Darina Hynes, Brian J. HarveyAbstractBasolateral membrane K+ channels play a key role in basal and agonist stimulated Cl- transport across airway epithelial cells by generating a favourable electrical driving force for Cl- efflux. The K+ channel sub-types and molecular mechanisms of regulation by hormones and secretagoues are still poorly understood. Here we have identified the type of K+ channels involved in cAMP and Ca2+ stimulated Cl- secretion and uncovered a novel anti-secretory effect of dexamethasone mediated by inhibition of basolateral membr...

Introduction: Asthma is one of the most common diseases in the world, in the last decades its prevalence has increased. Many studies have shown that excessive body weight and a high sodium intake increase the risk of asthma symptoms in children. Although the importance of diet on respiratory sensitivity is evident, the eating habits of patients with asthma are not commonly investigated in clinical practice.

ConclusionsAnxiety, depression and asthma control (specially patient-rated asthma control) were important independent predictors of asthma HRQoL, and all of them should therefore be considered in interventions to improve HRQoL in asthmatic patients.

Authors: Pai-Dhungat A Abstract When a patient presents with wheezing, pulmonary embolism is not usually considered as a possible cause. However bronchoconstriction can be caused by the embolism which produces wheezing that may be so obvious to make a diagnosis of bronchial asthma. Here we present a case of sub-massive pulmonary embolism presenting predominantly with wheezing without any previous history of cardio pulmonary diseases. The patient was treated for acute severe asthma in the beginning later suspected to have pulmonary embolism because of poor response to therapy and was confirmed by appropriate investi...
