ConclusionsAmong uninsured and underinsured asthma patients with GAD and/or MDD who were initiated on a single antidepressant, those who were titrated to achieve target doses had reduced risk of severe asthma exacerbations and lower number of asthma ÔÇÉrelated outcomes than those who were not optimized to achieve target doses.

Publication date: Available online 14 February 2020Source: The Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology: In PracticeAuthor(s): J.H. Hull, Krystelle Godbout, Louis-Philippe BouletAbstractBreathlessness during sport can be caused by a variety of cardiorespiratory conditions, but when associated with stridor, usually arises from an upper airway etiology. The term exercise-induced laryngeal obstruction (EILO) is now used to describe the phenomonen of transient glottic closure occurring in association with physical activity.Exercise related laryngeal closure is most commonly encountered in athletic individuals and likely affe...

ConclusionsOur results identify specialty specific concerns and can be used to inform the development of tailored interventions to improve wellness and minimize burnout. However, future surveys with a larger sample size are needed to obtain a more robust data set on allergy and immunology specific wellness challenges.

Authors: Doyen V, Casset A, Divaret-Chauveau A, Khayath N, Peiffer G, Bonniaud P, Dalphin JC, De Blay F Abstract Allergy is a hypersensitivity reaction induced by immunological mechanisms. In asthma, allergy has a complex role and is usually IgE mediated. Allergy must be evaluated during the work up but evidence of IgE sensitivity does not mean that allergens play a role in the pathophysiology of the disease. The clinical relevance of the sensitivity has to be considered. This paper describes current available tools to screen for IgE sensitivity, allergen exposure and their role in asthma.

Authors: Raherison C, Hamzaoui A, Nocent-Ejnaini C, Essari LA, Ouksel H, Zysman M, Prudhomme A, groupe de travail Femmes et poumons de la SPLF Abstract In a woman's life, asthma can affect her in a variety of ways, with the onset of premenstrual asthma currently under-diagnosed. It is estimated that about 20% of women with asthma have premenstrual asthma, which is more common in patients with severe asthma. Women with asthma are at high risk of exacerbations and of severe asthma. Asthma is the most common chronic disease during pregnancy with potential maternal and foetal complications. Asthma medications are safe ...

Authors: Barry F, Thompson LR, Ravandi B, Chang TP, Halterman JS, Szilagyi PG, Okelo SO Abstract Background: National asthma guidelines encourage use of patient surveys to aid clinical assessment. Little is known about how these should be administered in acute care settings such as the emergency department (ED). Objective: Evaluate if parents have a preference for interview vs. self-administered surveys in an ED, understand the sociodemographic and clinical characteristics by choice of survey mode of administration, and assess if there is a difference by mode in the parent's perception of an asthma management tool....

Although endoscopic sinus surgery (ESS) improves asthma control in CRSwNP patients with asthma, the mechanism that underlies the response to surgical treatment is still unclear. We evaluated the relevance of changes in asthma control and changes in airway/systemic inflammation in eosinophilic CRSwNP patients with not well controlled...
