Conclusion: Our results can be used to parametrize misclassification assumptions for quantitative bias analysis when pulmonary function data are unavailable.
Limited studies have identified symptom clusters (SCs) and their risk factors and the relationships with inflammatory biomarkers in patients with acute exacerbation of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (AECOPD).
There is a discordance in the literature regarding the presence of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and the development of venous thromboemboli (VTEs). Therefore, the purpose of this study was to determine whether COPD patients undergoing primary total knee arthroplasty (TKA) have higher rates of: 1) in-hospital lengths of stay (LOS); 2) readmissions; 3) VTEs; and 4) costs of care.
A significant fraction of the glycerophospholipids in the human body is composed of plasmalogens, particularly in the brain, cardiac, and immune cell membranes. A decline in these lipids has been observed in such diseases as Alzheimer’s and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Plasmalogens contain a characteristic 1-O-alk-1′-enyl ether (vinyl ether) double...
A mechanical ventilator can cost a hospital tens of thousands of dollars up front, and even more money each day it’s used to keep oxygen flowing into a sick patient’s lungs. It’s unsurprising, then, that some small U.S. hospitals can count theirs on one hand. There are about 160,000 ventilators in use in hospitals nationwide—about half the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases in the U.S. as of April 6. As the number of coronavirus diagnoses ticks upward, inventors are resorting to increasingly creative solutions to stave off an impending ventilator shortage. But the stakes are high for getting it righ...
RESUMEN Introducci ón: El manejo odontológico de pacientes médicamente comprometidos requiere un enfoque integral y multidisciplinario. La hipoxemia puede presentarse en pacientes odontológicos con enfermedades respiratorias durante y después de la intervención, por lo que se requiere la monitorización del porc entaje de saturación de oxígeno en sangre periférica (%SpO2) para identificar rápidamente aquellos trastornos que precisen intervención terapéutica. La enfermedad pulmonar obstructiva crónica (EPOC) es una enfermedad qu...
