Quality of Life Predictors in Patients with Dyspnea

Uncontrolled dyspnea is terrifying for patients and has a negative effect on quality of life (QOL) (Gupta, Lis,&Grutsch, 2007). Fatigue (92%), dyspnea (63%), and pain (55%) have been reported as the three most prevalent symptoms for patients diagnosed with higher risk myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) (Efficace et al., 2015). Dyspnea and associated symptoms in advanced cancer are not adequately treated due to limited research and understanding of the experience (Twaddle et al., 2007).

by Christian Sinclair (@ctsinclair)We used to publish a lot more article reviews here on Pallimed. Sometimes the analysis would be quite deep and sometimes we would just lump together a while bunch of snippets from key articles. I have been keeping an ever-growing list of articles I would love to write up for the site*, but never seemed to have the time to get to them, and then new ones would come out, that I would want to write about, but they too would just get added to the list. At the end of the year, I would look back on key articles for our field and be pretty bummed out that I never got anything published here about...

This study determined if there are observable patient-, tooth- and crack-level characteristics markedly associated with whether a tooth with an external crack also has an internal crack. METHODS: Two hundred nine dentists in The National Dental Practice-Based Research Network enrolled 2,858 adults with a vital permanent posterior tooth having at least 1 observed external crack. Presence and characteristics of internal cracks were recorded for 435 cracked teeth that were treated. Generalized estimating equations were used to identify significant (P
