Long-Term Non-Invasive Ventilation for Chronic Respiratory Failure.

[Long-Term Non-Invasive Ventilation for Chronic Respiratory Failure]. Praxis (Bern 1994). 2019 Sep;108(11):737-740 Authors: Brack T Abstract Long-Term Non-Invasive Ventilation for Chronic Respiratory Failure Abstract. Non-invasive long-term ventilation (NIV) may be helpful for selected patients with severe COPD and chronic respiratory lailure (chronic hypercapnia and hypoxemia). The patient described in the case report became normocapnic under long-term NIV and both her sleep and quality of life improved significantly. She also suffered fewer COPD exacerbations and was better able to cope with them herself with the help of NIV. PMID: 31480963 [PubMed - in process]

AbstractPurpose of ReviewThe purpose of this review article is to provide an overview of sleep and pulmonary comorbidities in patients with psoriasis and summarize important recent findings.Recent FindingsEvidence continues to show that patients with psoriasis experience greater chronic sleep impairment when compared to healthy counterparts. In addition to other comorbidities seen in psoriasis patients, including cardiovascular disease, obesity, and diabetes, obstructive sleep apnea and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease have increased frequency in this population.SummarySleep and pulmonary comorbidities in psoriasis co...

Authors: Wouters EF, Posthuma R, Koopman M, Liu WY, Sillen MJ, Hajian B, Sastry M, Spruit M, Franssen FM Abstract Introduction: Pulmonary rehabilitation (PR) is one of the core components in the management of patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). In order to achieve the maximal level of independence, autonomy, and functioning of the patient, targeted therapies and interventions based on the identification of physical, emotional and social traits need to be provided by a dedicated, interdisciplinary PR team.Areas covered: The review discusses cardiopulmonary exercise testing in the selection of...

Authors: Shah A, Ayas N, Tan WC, Malhotra A, Kimoff J, Kaminska M, Aaron SD, Jen R Abstract Small studies have suggested that patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) have poor sleep quality. Our aim was to examine the prevalence of subjective sleep-related complaints and predictors of poor sleep quality in a large community-based COPD cohort. We analyzed cross-sectional data on sleep questionnaire responses from the Canadian Cohort of Obstructive Lung Disease (CanCOLD) study, a population-based, prospective longitudinal cohort study across Canada. The cohort comprises a COPD group and two matched...

The occurrence and sequelae of disorders that lead to hypoxic spells such as asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) exhibit daily variance. This prompted us to examine the interaction between the hypoxic response and the circadian clock in vivo. We found that the global transcriptional response...
