ConclusionThis systematic review highlighted the potential of a goal setting technique in the asthma self-management education. However, due to the limitations of the quality and quantity of the included literature, more rigorous studies are needed. In the future, better effective study protocol combining with goal setting approach and other behavior technique is needed to further investigate.
Authors: Nafiu OO, Owusu-Bediako K, Chimbira WT Abstract BACKGROUND: Recent data among pediatric otolaryngology patients showed unexplained higher rates of serious perioperative respiratory adverse events (PRAE) in black children compared to their white peers. We evaluated whether preoperative respiratory comorbidity (PRC) burden contributes to racial disparity in serious PRAE in children undergoing non-otolaryngologic procedures. METHODS: Rates of serious PRAE (laryngospasm and/or bronchospasm) were compared across racial groups in a retrospective cohort of black and white children (N = 18538; black ...

This study was carried out to evaluate embryotoxicity of CR decoction in vivo and in vitro, and to explore the mechanism of embryotoxicity from the perspective of bone metabolism.Materials and methodsIn animal experiments, pregnant mice were randomly assigned into 5 groups, i.e. mice were orally treated with CR decoction at dosages of 0 (distilled water, as negative controls), 2, 8, 32 g/kg/d (low, medium and high-dose group), and vitamin A (as positive controls), respectively. Maternal and embryo-fetal parameters were registered after cesarean section. The fetal skeletal development was further assessed with the alizari...
