Previous Asthma Exacerbations Predict Future Events in Mild, Moderate Disease

Study authors propose a new asthma patient “phenotype” in which a previous severe event is the sole predictor of another one.

Hey, I have been accepted to a med school and will start Fall 2018. I am trying to do HPSP and would really like to serve in the army or air force and have met with recruiters for application process information. However, I have asthma. Is this an automatic disqualification or is there any way to get a waiver for this?

osub Youm Respiratory activity is an essential vital sign of life that can indicate changes in typical breathing patterns and irregular body functions such as asthma and panic attacks. Many times, there is a need to monitor breathing activity while performing day-to-day functions such as standing, bending, trunk stretching or during yoga exercises. A single IMU (inertial measurement unit) can be used in measuring respiratory motion; however, breathing motion data may be influenced by a body trunk movement that occurs while recording respiratory activity. This research employs a pair of wireless, wearable IMU sensors cu...

Conclusion There was no evidence of a reliable physician-rated response, ACQ-5 score, or lung function–based continuation rule. The added value of changes in blood eosinophils at week 16 over baseline was marginal. Initiation criteria for mepolizumab treatment provide the best method for assessing patient benefit from mepolizumab treatment, and treatment continuation should be reviewed on the basis of a predefined reduction in long-term exacerbation frequency and/or oral corticosteroid dose.

Moving along the treadmill of life, many of us succumb to the ever-present pressures to be faster, stronger, more efficient, and smarter. Perspective on what is happening in our lives is lost. We focus on failure and lacking within ourselves, rather than the abundance and opportunities for growth that surround us. We stop taking the time to appreciate the simple pleasures of our lives as we spiral our way into a depleted existence — physically, emotionally, and mentally. Now more than ever, there is a global need to circumvent this pattern of being. We need to learn to unconditionally love and appreciate ourselves ju...

Authors: Bialek-Gosk K, Maskey-Warzechowska M, Krenke R, Dabrowska M, Paplinska-Goryca M, Nejman-Gryz P, Domagala-Kulawik J, Przybylowski T, Chazan R Abstract OBJECTIVE: Menopausal asthma is considered a distinct asthma phenotype. Our aim was to identify potential specific features of asthma in postmenopausal women in a cohort of Polish females. METHODS: Asthma severity and control, pulmonary function, exhaled nitric oxide (FENO), peripheral blood and induced sputum (IS) differential cell count were compared in three groups: women with premenopausal asthma (group 1), menopausal women with pre-existing asthma (g...

Conclusions A history of respiratory symptoms during exercise was not associated with either elevated FeNO or a positive exercise test in children at risk of asthma. FeNO and exercise test results were linearly associated traits, but FeNO could not reliably be used dichotomized to predict the need of exercise testing.

Conclusions People with severe asthma perform less moderate and vigorous activity than do controls. Higher levels of activity and lower levels of sedentary time are associated with better exercise capacity, asthma control, and lower levels of systemic inflammation.

Conclusions We identified 3 phenotypes of allergic asthma in our population. Furthermore, we described 2 phenotypes of mild atopic asthma mainly differentiated by a family history of allergy.
