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.
Introduction: Body composition and physical fitness (PF) are major components of nutritional status which may be evaluated in the clinical setting using bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA) and a number of different specific tests, respectively. Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a chronic disease that is usually progressive and frequently associated with poor nutritional status.
Introduction: Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is a chronic and progressive respiratory disease, commonly associated with alterations of nutritional status. Among these, low Vitamin D levels are frequent and related to disease severity, risk of exacerbations and annual hospitalizations and general health status of individual patients.
Introduction: The evaluation of physical fitness (PF) has been gaining importance over the last years in the assessment of nutritional status in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).
Abstract The oxygen uptake (V˙O2) kinetics during onset of and recovery from exercise have been shown to provide valuable parameters regarding functional capacity of both chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and chronic heart failure (CHF) patients. To investigate the influence of comorbidity of COPD in patients with CHF with reduced ejection fraction on recovery from submaximal exercise, 9 CHF-COPD male patients and 10 age-, gender-, and left ventricle ejection fraction (LVEF)-matched CHF patients underwent constant-load exercise tests (CLET) at moderate and high loads. The V˙O2, heart rate (HR), and ca...
AbstractBackgroundPatient-related risk factors for the development of postoperative pulmonary complications (PPCs) include age ≥ 60-years, congestive heart failure, hypoalbuminemia and smoking. The effect of obesity is unclear and has not been shown to independently increase the likelihood of PPCs in trauma patients undergoing trauma laparotomy. We hypothesized the likelihood of mortality and PPCs would increase as b ody mass index (BMI) increases in trauma patients undergoing trauma laparotomy.MethodsThe Trauma Quality Improvement Program (2010 –2016) was queried to identify trauma patients ...

Here we describe the results of a recent clinical audit, including a systematic review of practices reported in literature and an open discussion comparing these to current real-life proce...
