Conclusions: In our PICU cohort of children with status asthmaticus, use of 10 mg/hr continuous albuterol was associated with lower fluid bolus resuscitation without more adjunctive therapies. These findings support the safety of lower doses in this population. Prospective studies evaluating the efficacy and toxicity of specific continuous albuterol dosages in critically ill children with status asthmaticus are warranted.

Authors: Oshagbemi OA, Franssen FME, van Kraaij S, Braeken DCW, Wouters EFM, Maitland-van der Zee AH, Driessen JHM, de Vries F Abstract Although recently introduced in the pharmacological treatment algorithm of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), there is a need for more data supporting the use of blood eosinophil counts as a biomarker to guide inhaled corticosteroids (ICS) therapy. The aim of this study was to evaluate the risk of moderate and/or severe exacerbations and all-cause mortality in a large primary care population after withdrawal of ICS compared to continued users stratified by elevated blood...

We examined asthma disparities among children aged 4-17 in 6 small non-Hispanic racial/ethnic minority groups (American Indian/Alaska Native [AI/AN], Asian Indian, Chinese, Filipino, other Asian, and multiple race) by using the 2006-2015 National Health Interview Survey. These small minority groups represented a weighted 6.1% of the study population (6770 of 88 049). The prevalence of current asthma ranged from 5.5% (95% confidence interval [CI], 3.5%-7.5%) among Chinese children to 13.8% (95% CI, 10.4%-17.2%) among multiple-race children and 14.6% (95% CI, 10.8%-18.4%) among AI/AN children. Compared with non-Hispan...

Authors: Chabowski M, Juzwiszyn J, Bolanowska Z, Brzecka A, Jankowska-PolaƄska B Abstract Chronic nonmalignant pulmonary diseases impose a heavy burden on patients, generate health-care costs, and contribute to poor health-related quality of life. It has been found that a wide range of factors negatively affects quality of life, but the role of acceptance of illness needs to be further investigated. The aim of the study was to evaluate the relationship between acceptance of illness and quality of life in patients with chronic nonmalignant pulmonary diseases. The study encompassed 200 patients of the mean age 58&nb...

CONCLUSIONS: This analysis suggests that there is an association between symptom exacerbation in response to food products with higher potential salicylate content, specifically wine, in CRS patients both with and without nasal polyposis when compared to controls, but especially in the CRSwNPs and AFRS phenotypes. Further studies are needed to detail if this relationship represents a causal relationship to dietary salicylate. The data present the possibility that a wider group of CRS patients may elicit salicylate sensitivity than those with known N-ERD. PMID: 31120456 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Gilardi E, Marsiliani D, Nicolò R, Petrucci M, Torelli E, Racco S, Di Maurizio L, Saviano L, Biscione G, Giannuzzi R, Covino M, Merra G, Franceschi F Abstract With our study, we searched the medical literature to find magnesium (Mg) correlation with Emergency situations or its use in Emergency Medicine. Our aim is to fill the gap that we find in our daily routine between Mg studies on its role in Emergency and the real conception that doctors have of it in medical practice. We searched the literature for terms as magnesium or magnesium sulphate, magnesium in emergency, eclampsia, arrhythmias, acute ...

Correlation study on β2-adrenergic receptor gene polymorphisms and asthma susceptibility: evidence based on 57 case-control studies. Eur Rev Med Pharmacol Sci. 2019 May;23(9):3908-3925 Authors: Yu X, Wang LW, He Q, Khan K, Chen XY, Li J Abstract OBJECTIVE: Previous studies have indicated that β2-adrenergic receptor (ADRB2) genetic polymorphism is related to the risk of asthma, but the results still have some controversy and uncertainty. To this end, the meta-analysis was performed, including all studies that can be used to assess the correlation between ADRB2 polymorphism and asthma susceptib...
