Comparison of Two Continuous Nebulized Albuterol Doses in Critically Ill Children with Status Asthmaticus.

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.

Artificial intelligence is virtually everywhere right now, especially in medtech. But are companies investing in AI just because all the cool kids are doing it, or because of what the technology could ultimately do for healthcare? What is the current state of AI in medtech and what is standing in the way of the technology reaching its full potential? Industry experts will tackle these questions and more at MD&M West in Anaheim, CA on Feb. 11 during a panel session dubbed, "Are AI-Powered Devices Really the Future for Healthcare?" As moderator, I had the opportunity to chat with the panelists this week...

How does climate change threaten the health and survival of humans? Beyond obvious threats like heatstroke, doctors and other scientists suspect climate change factored in the 2012 Dallas epidemic of West Nile encephalitis and the spread of other tropical diseases shared by mosquitos. One physician expert points to climate change as a contributing factor for allergies, asthma, worse COPD conditions, and heart attacks. Physicians will address this timely issue and more during the 2020 Texas Medical Association (TMA) Winter Conference in Austin this week.

Authors: Hillas G, Fouka E, Papaioannou AI Abstract Introduction: Since the discovery of eosinophils in the sputum of asthmatic patients, several studies have offered evidence on their prominent role in the pathology and severity of asthma. Blood eosinophils, are a useful biomarker for therapy selection in severe asthma patients. IL-5 plays crucial role on maturation, activation, recruitment, and survival of eosinophils and constitutes an important therapeutic target for patients with severe uncontrolled eosinophilic asthma.Areas Covered: This review focuses on the similarities and differences on mechanisms of acti...
