Comparison of a simplified nasal continuous positive airways pressure device with nasal cannula in obese patients undergoing colonoscopy during deep sedation: A randomised clinical trial

BACKGROUND Continuous positive airways pressure (CPAP) with a CPAP machine and mask has been shown to be more effective at minimising hypoxaemia than other devices under deep sedation. However, the efficacy of a new and simple CPAP device for spontaneously breathing obese patients during colonoscopy is unknown. OBJECTIVE We hypothesised that oxygenation and ventilation in obese patients under deep sedation during colonoscopy using CPAP via a new nasal mask (SuperNO2VA) would be better than routine care with oxygen supplementation via a nasal cannula. DESIGN Randomised study. SETTING Single-centre, June 2017 to October 2017. PATIENTS A total of 174 patients were enrolled and randomly assigned to Mask group or Control group. Thirty-eight patients were excluded and data from 136 patients underwent final analysis. INTERVENTION Patients in the Mask group were provided with nasal CPAP (10 cmH2O) at an oxygen flow rate of 15 l min−1. In the Control group, patients were given oxygen via a nasal cannula at a flow rate of 5 l min−1. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES The primary outcome was elapsed time from anaesthesia induction to the first airway intervention. RESULTS The elapsed time from anaesthesia induction to the first airway intervention was 19 ± 10 min in the Mask group (n=63) vs. 10 ± 12 min in the Control group (n=73, P

Authors: Gillis LJ Abstract Obesity is a major health issue. A community-based intervention was implemented on a college campus to help employees lose body weight and fat. Participants were scanned using the InBody device at pre- and post-intervention, measuring body weight, fat, and waist circumference. Participants attended 11 classes on healthy lifestyle education. A comparison of pre- and post-intervention measurements was made using a paired t-test, resulting in a statistically significant difference in outcome measures. Correlation between class attendance and pounds lost showed a moderate negative correlatio...

Authors: Hawker GA Abstract Osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common form of arthritis, affecting 1 in 3 people over age 65 and women more so than men. The prevalence of OA is rising due, in part, to the increasing prevalence of OA risk factors, including obesity, physical inactivity, and joint injury. OA-related joint pain causes functional limitations, poor sleep, fatigue, depressed mood and loss of independence. Compared to age and sex-matched peers, OA patients incur higher out of pocket health-related expenditures and substantial costs due to lost productivity. Most people with OA (59-87%) have at least one othe...

Authors: Griffin TM, Scanzello CR Abstract Although osteoarthritis (OA) was historically referred to as the non-inflammatory arthritis, it is now considered a condition involving persistent low-grade inflammation and activation of innate inflammatory pathways. Synovitis increases the risk of OA onset and progression and involves the recruitment of monocytes, lymphocytes, and other leukocytes. In particular, macrophages are important mediators of synovial inflammatory activity and pathologic cartilage and bone responses that are characteristic of OA. Advances in understanding how damage-associated molecular patterns...

Nowadays, it is the world's fourth most deadly cancer with almost 900 000 deaths annually. Besides an ageing population and dietary habits of high-income countries, unfavourable risk factors such as obesity, lack of physical exercise, and smoking increase the risk of colorectal cancer. Advancements in pathophysiological understanding have increased the array of treatme...

(CNN) — Should you eat before or after exercise in the morning? The debate has raged for years. The eat-first camp says food before exercise boosts blood sugars, giving the body fuel to increase the intensity and length of a workout. It also keeps you from being fatigued or dizzy. The eat-after camp says you burn more fat if you fast before exercise. A small UK study published Friday supports the latter point of view: In 30 obese or overweight men, those who exercised before breakfast burned twice the fat as men who ate breakfast before they worked out. That’s because exercising with no fuel forces the body to ...

HolleboomThe prevalence of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is strongly increasing and may put patients at increased risk for atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (asCVD). Both disease phenotypes often co-occur, in the case of obesity, insulin resistance, diabetes mellitus type 2, and the metabolic syndrome. We explore the pathogenesis of NAFLD, the epidemiology of asCVD in NAFLD patients, shared drivers of both phenotypes, and fact...

Potential harms of exercise restriction, including physical inactivity’s impact on obesity, chronic disease and negative psychological and emotional consequences, have been considered ancillary, if considered at all.
