This study analyzed cross-sectional datasets of adults (aged ≥ 40 years) in the Korean National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey 2010-2016. Health-related QoL was assessed using the 3-level EuroQoL 5-dimension component (EQ-5D-3L) index score. The presence of chronic cough and other conditions were defined using structured questionnaires. RESULTS: The prevalence of chronic cough was 3.48% ± 0.17% among adults aged ≥ 40 years. The overall EQ-5D-3L index score was significantly lower in subjects with than without chronic cough (0.79 ± 0.01 vs. 0.86 ± 0.00, P

Considering the clinical association that is often made with anxiety, more studies are necessary on the psychosomatic aspects of this syndrome. Further analytical epidemiological studies are needed to support the formulation of aetiological hypotheses of MCS.

Purpose of review To present an overview of the impact of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) on patients’ emotional well being and quality of life (QoL). Recent findings IPF is an interstitial lung disease which causes irreversible, progressive lung scarring in a pathological pattern of usual interstitial pneumonia. The incidence of IPF is increasing at a global level, subjecting an increasing number of people to its high morbidity and risk of mortality. Diagnosis is based on a multidisciplinary team approach and the exclusion of other interstitial lung diseases. Two novel antifibrotic treatments, pirfenidone a...

Coronavirus is a large family of viruses that can infect animals and humans. Many of the coronaviruses that have been identified so far cause a wide range of respiratory infections in humans. They range from colds to more severe illnesses such as MERS and SARS. The newfound coronavirus causes an infectious disease called COVID-19. The emerging virus and its aftermath were unknown until it began in December 2019 in Wuhan, China. Fever, fatigue, and dry cough are the most common symptoms of COVID-19 (Naeim, 2020; Zandifar&Badrfam, 2020).

ABSTRACT COVID-19 disease caused by infection with the SARS-CoV-2 virus produces respiratory symptoms, predominantly of the upper airways, which can progress to pneumonia after 7 days with persistent fever, cough and dyspnea, and even develop a syndrome of acute respiratory distress (ARDS), multi-organ failure and death. Since COVID-19 disease was declared by the WHO there has been a redistribution of the healthcare system for these types of patients, especially in the front line, which is, in primary care, emergencies and in intensive care units (ICU). In primary care, the fundamental role is the diagnosis of the suspecte...

ConclusionThe frontline healthcare workers are at risk of physical and mental consequences directly as the result of providing care to patients with COVID-19. Even though there are few intervention studies, early data suggest implementation strategies to reduce the chances of infections, shorter shift lengths, and mechanisms for mental health support could reduce the morbidity and mortality amongst HCWs.

COVID-19 and its associated quarantine have messed with pretty much every aspect of our lives. Work time, meal time, family time, play time; our moods, our stress level, our tolerance; our ability to spend so much as one more minute staring at the same four walls of the same den or living room or home office in which we spend most of our days. And if you’re like plenty of people, the quarantine has also completely bollixed up your sleep cycle, wrecking what might have been the most predictable and peaceful eight hours of your day. Unless, that is, you’re like plenty of other people—and the quarantine has ...
