Ozone exposure causes irritation, airway hyperreactivity (AHR), inflammation of the airways, and destruction of alveoli (emphysema), the gas exchange area of the lung in human and mice. This review focuses on the acute disruption of the respiratory epithelial barrier in mice. A single high dose ozone exposure (1 ppm for 1 h) causes first a break of the bronchiolar epithelium within 2 h with leak of serum proteins in the broncho-alveolar space, disruption of epithelial tight junctions and cell death, which is followed at 6 h by ROS activation, AHR, myeloid cell recruitment, and remodeling. High ROS levels activate a novel P...

This study was designed to examine the association between sleep problems and different categories of OAD amongst US adults.MethodsWe conducted an observational, cross-sectional study using a nationally representative sample of the US civilian non-institutionalized population from 2007 to 2008 National Health and Nutritional Examination Survey (NHANES). A total of 3204 study participants aged ≥35 years were stratified into four groups, using a self-reported history of asthma and data from spirometry: asthma-COPD overlap (ACO) (n = 70, 2.2%), asthma (n = 168, 5.2%), chronic obstructive pu...

Harry Campbell for TIME There can be no discussion about climate change without a meaningful conversation about public health. As leading health experts have affirmed, the climate crisis is a threat multiplier, particularly for communities suffering from environmental injustice. For example, the Fourth National Climate Assessment, published in 2018 by a collaboration among 13 U.S. scientific agencies, highlights how higher temperatures, severe weather events and rising seas can contribute to heat-related cardiopulmonary illness, infectious disease and mental-health issues. Societal factors such as poverty, discrimination, ...

Authors: Jany B, Bals R, Dreher M, Held M, Jany L, Rembert Koczulla A, Pfeifer M, Randerath W, Watz H, Wilkens H, Steinkamp G Abstract When caring for patients with respiratory diseases, always think of the heart! This is especially important for COPD patients, but also for a variety of other disorders of the respiratory system. At the workshop "Luftschlösser", held once more at Wiesbaden, Germany in February 2019 the many and important interactions of the lungs and the heart as well as the therapeutic implications were discussed. Based on pathophysiology, the psycho-social consequences of dyspnea, t...

Washington University ’s Dr. Michael Holtzman has received grants totaling $7.5 million to support research that could help control chronic respiratory diseases, such as asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Holtzman, director of the division of pulmonary and critical care at the Wash U School of Medicine, said in a release that there may be a new way to help patients with chronic lung diseases if new drugs are developed to target a specific stem cell “that becomes reprogrammed and…

Introduction: Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) for opioid use disorder (OUD) is underused in primary care. Little is known about patient demographics associated with MAT initiation, particularly among models with an interdisciplinary approach, including behavioral health integration. We hypothesize few disparities in MAT initiation by patient characteristics after implementing this model for OUD. Methods: Electronic health record data were used to identify adults with ≥1 primary care visit in 1 of 2 study clinics in a Pacific Northwest academic health system between September 1, 2015 and August 31, 2017 (n = 23,372)...
