Black people more likely to die from asthma than any other race
Racial, environmental and economic problems continue to widen disparities in negative asthma outcomes for people in the U.S., a study says.
(Natural News) Time and again, natural remedies outperform dangerous pharmaceutical drugs from many angles, including effectiveness, safety and cost. And now, black seed oil (also known by its scientific name, nigella sativa) has proven that point yet again. It is providing a hopeful solution to the massive numbers of people suffering with asthma throughout the...
CONCLUSION: In this statewide study in Florida, we found long average estimated EMS travel distances to admitting facilities for Florida's pediatric population in rural counties for pediatric asthma exacerbations. Those long distances have great implications for rural EMS operations, including pediatric destination decisions, transport times, and availability for others who call 911. Further research on bypass and secondary transport rates, and outcomes for asthma and other pediatric conditions are required to further characterize pediatric regionalization's impact on rural EMS.

Publication date: Available online 14 March 2019Source: Pulmonary Pharmacology &TherapeuticsAuthor(s): David Muccino, Stuart GreenAbstractChronic cough, or cough lasting>8 weeks, is often associated with underlying medical conditions (ie, asthma, gastroesophageal reflux disease, nonasthmatic eosinophilic bronchitis, and upper-airway cough syndrome). In some patients with chronic cough, treatment of these underlying conditions does not resolve the cough (refractory chronic cough [RCC]), or none of these conditions are present (unexplained chronic cough [UCC]). Despite appropriate medical evaluation, patients with RCC...
We read with great interest the article by Dr. Davies et al published in the October 2018 edition of Respiratory Medicine . The study concluded that asthmatics with co-existing obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) could experience improved quality of life with Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) treatment . OSA is a common comorbidity of uncontrolled asthma that should be routinely evaluated . We appreciate the authors ’ efforts to shed light on this important clinical entity; however, we are concerned about some issues that may affect the validity of the results.

Arerugi. 2019;68(2):101-106 Authors: Oyama B, Tsuburai T, Komase Y, Nishida K, Tsuruoka H, Usuba A, Muraoka H, Hida N, Mineshita M Abstract A 68 year-old woman with dyspnea and cough had been treated with inhaled corticosteroids for X-15 years, but her symptoms worsened in X year. High-resolution chest CT revealed small centrilobular nodules in the right upper lobe in March X year. The patient was diagnosed with asthma and diffuse panbronchiolitis and treated with inhaled corticosteroids, a long-acting ...
