P206 analysis of spirometry measurements as predictors of aspirin desensitization outcomes

While it is typical practice for the FEV1 to be optimized prior to aspirin desensitization, it is not entirely clear if other spirometry measures relate to aspirin desensitization outcome.

Int J Sports Med DOI: 10.1055/a-1236-3698Acute respiratory disorder is a common sub-clinical condition affecting elite cyclists. Monitoring the perturbations of the immunological cells in the respiratory tract, indicative of a likely proinflammatory state, during an International Cycling Union world tour is a challenging task. The aim of this study was to follow up on the sign and symptoms of upper way respiratory infections with or without asthma, using non-invasive methods, during a 21-day race (100° Giro d’Italia, 2017). Nine male elite cyclists of the Bahrain Merida Team wer...

Gold et  al1 reported the reversible loss of lung elastic recoil during an acute exacerbation among nonsmoking patients with asthma, followed by a return of normal spirometry. Subsequently, from 2000 to 2004, we documented long-term loss of lung elastic recoil in nonsmoking patients with asthma with persis tent expiratory airflow limitation despite therapeutic intervention.2 However, lung computed tomography (CT) did not reveal significant lung tissue breakdown, and diffusing capacity remained normal.

Authors: Kim SR, Park KH, Son NH, Moon J, Park HJ, Kim K, Park JW, Lee JH Abstract PURPOSE: It is difficult to assess airway obstruction using spirometry in adult asthmatic patients with preserved lung function. Impulse oscillometry (IOS) can detect not only airway resistance but also reactance. Therefore, IOS may be useful in assessing pulmonary function in such patients. We investigated the applicability of IOS for asthma patients with preserved lung function. METHODS: Between 2015 and 2018, 1,248 adult asthmatic patients suspected of having asthma who visited the Allergy and Asthma Center of Severance Hospit...

Acute asthma exacerbations account for 750,000 pediatric emergency department (ED) visits, 200,000 hospitalizations, and 5.2 billion in excess health care costs in the United States annually.1 The current ED treatment of acute exacerbations is based on the severity at initial presentation as determined by clinical scoring tools, which are limited by subjectivity and poor association with actual airway function.2 Traditional methods to objectively assess lung function, including spirometry and peak expiratory flow rate, are not feasible or reproducible in younger children.

This study was conducted to evaluate the effect of Chlorpheniramine Maleate aerosol inhalation on flow volumes and gas exchange. Materials and Methods: 25 established patients of stabilized bronchial asthma (18 to 44 years) with history of EIA attending Allergy OPD, Medical OPD or Chest clinic were included in the present study. Patients were studied for 3 days in a week at the same time of day. Baseline spirometry was done to know test parameters, i.e. FEV1, PEFR and FEF50%. Gas exchange study during rest including minute ventilation (VE), oxygen consumption (VO2), Carbon dioxide produced per minute (VCO2), Respirator...

Abstract BACKGROUND: Fraction exhaled nitric oxide (FeNO) is a non-invasive biomarker of type-2 asthma that can predict response to inhaled corticosteroid(ICS) therapy. Little is known regarding the magnitude of FeNO reduction following an oral corticosteroid(OCS) course and less is known whether there are differential responses based on race in children with mild-to-moderate asthma. OBJECTIVE: To assess the effect of a short course of OCS on FeNO in asthmatic children and to determine if the effect is influenced by race. METHODS: Children presenting with an acute asthma exacerbation, who had a FeNO meas...

Authors: Lipej M, Plavec D, Živković J, Malev O, Nogalo B, Magdić R, Lulić Jurjević R, Turkalj M Abstract BACKGROUND: Environmental interactions are very complex in childhood asthma, and we hypothesized that even a short-term exposure to an allergy safe outdoor environment (AllSOE) combined with pulmonary rehabilitation program (PRP) could exert significant beneficial effects. Our aim was to test the effects of 2-week PRP provided in AllSOE in children with mild to moderate asthma. METHODS: 110 children (aged 7.5-17 years, 46% girls), with partially or totally controlled asthma, attended the PRP at the Isl...
