Upright posture increases oxyhemoglobin saturation in Peruvian highlanders

We examined associations of BMI, age, sex and spirometry with postural SpO2 changes with mixed-effects linear regression.In highlanders, SpO2 was 84% in the supine posture and was 1.0% ± 1.1 (p

Authors: Bingol Z, Karaayvaz EB, Telci A, Bilge AK, Okumus G, Kiyan E Abstract Objective: The serum levels of leptin and adiponectin were examined in different obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) phenotypes. Methods: Obese patients who were admitted to our sleep laboratory were included. All patients underwent spirometry, daytime arterial blood gas analysis, polysomnography and transthoracic echocardiography. Serum levels of adiponectin and leptin were recorded. Results: Analysis included 146 OSA patients (81 females, 65 males, age: 49.8 ± 10.7 years, body mass index: 40.3 ± 4.9&nbs...

▒ G, Sucak GT Abstract BACKGROUND: A limited number of studies have reported impairments in physical activity, exercise capacity and quality of life (QOL) in allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (allogeneic-HSCT) recipients. We aimed to compare dyspnea, exercise capacity, physical activity and QOL in allogeneic-HSCT recipients with age-gender matched healthy individuals, since this has not been investigated hitherto. METHODS: A total of 80 allogeneic-HSCT recipients (>100 days status post-transplantation) (38.88 ± 13.25 years) and 60 healthy individuals (35.92 ...

CONCLUSIONS In our study, a significant relationship was found between the Warrick score and the OSA severity parameters, as determined by polysomnography. Polysomnographic examinations might be useful, especially in patients with a Warrick score greater than 15, to avoid possible complications. PMID: 30894506 [PubMed - in process]

Authors: Vasankari T, Härkänen T, Kainu A, Sääksjärvi K, Mattila T, Jousilahti P, Laitinen T Abstract In the present study we aimed to investigate the incidence and predictors of spirometry based airway obstruction in a representative population-based sample. Altogether 3,863 subjects, 1,651 males and 2,212 females aged ≥30 years had normal spirometry in year 2000. Fifty-three percent of them were never and 23% current smokers. A re-spirometry was performed 11 years later. Several characteristics, such as level of education, use of alcohol, physical activity, diet using Alterna...

Background: The peripheral obstructive pattern (POP) is defined by the combination of a restrictive spirometry pattern (normal Forced Expiratory Volume at one second over Forced Vital Capacity ratio (FEV1/FVC) and reduced FVC) along with a normal Total Lung Capacity (TLC).Objectives: To study the prevalence of POP among children referred for Lung Function Testing (LFTing), and identify other LF indices that could distinguish children with POP from those with true restrictive pattern (RP).Methods: Monocenter retrospective study from 2009 to 2017 based on all LFT records of Caucasian patients, excluding neuromuscular patient...

Conclusions: Preterm-born children have increased rates of BHR compared to term-born children. Rates of BHR after an exercise test were higher compared to rates after a methacholine challenge. The data suggest that subgroups of preterm born children might benefit from anti-inflammatory or bronchodilator therapies.
