Down's syndrome as a risk factor for severe lower respiratory tract infection due to RSV
Abstract AimTo compare the clinical characteristics of children with and without Down's syndrome hospitalized due to respiratory syncytial virus (RSV). MethodsA retrospective cohort study was performed, where data from hospitalizations due to RSV lower respiratory tract infection (LRTI) in children (
ConclusionsThis large observational study based on claims data reliably identified subjects with COPD treated with open TT and their burden on the NHS. Moreover, it could describe the real clinical management of the open TT, before the marketing of the fixed one. These findings are useful for health policymakers in order to promote the appropriate utilization of both currently marketed and future therapies.

Whether there are specific clinical and pathophysiological features can indicate RB in patients with CVA needs further investigation. Thus, we aimed to investigate the RB in patients with CVA and associated factors.MethodsForty-two CVA patients were randomized in a 2:1 ratio to receive oral bambuterol hydrochl...

Objectives In patients with coronary heart disease (CHD) and type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM), physical activity is strongly advised as nonpharmacological therapy. In general, a moderate aerobic exercise intensity is recommended. It was also proposed, however, that greater intensities tend to yield even greater benefits in HbA1c. Hence, the most appropriate exercise intensity seems not to be established yet. We compared the effect of moderate (aerobic) and vigorous (anaerobic) activity on postprandial plasma glucose. Methods In 10 consecutive patients (63 ± 12 years, BMI 28.3 ±...

This study presents a multivariate methodology for the modeling of stress on metabolic syndrome (MES) patients. We have developed a supporting system to cope with MES patients’ anxiety and stress by means of several biosignals such as ECG, GSR, body temperature, SPO2, glucose level, and blood pressure that are measured by a wearable device. We employed a neural network model to classify emotions with HRV analysis in the detection of stressor moments. We have accurately recognized the stressful situations using physiological responses to stimuli by utilizing our proposed affective state detection algorithm. We evaluat...
