AbstractIndoor air pollution is increasingly recognized as a significant risk for respiratory illness, particularly in vulnerable populations. Thirty-six children aged 6 –14 years with moderate/severe asthma from inner city areas in New York City were studied for 2-week periods (summer and winter) using diaries and spirometry. Seven-day integrated indoor samples of PM10, PM2.5, trace elements, elemental/organic carbon, black carbon, and criteria gases (NO2, SO2, and O3) were collected in the subjects ’ residences. Asthma outcomes included cough and wheeze severity, albuterol use, and pulmonary function. Mi...

Conclusions: HS-BPT-APS is simple, safe, and time-saving, with few adverse reactions. The positive rate of HS-BPT-APS was higher than that of methacholine BPT in children with asthma. HS-BPT-APS may be a valuable tool in the diagnosis of children with asthma, and further study is required. PMID: 31922916 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

A recent review, titled Management of Cough, begins with “People with chronic cough (CC) can experience significant quality-of-life impairment.”1 That statement is incontrovertible. However, the references supporting etiology of CC exclusively related to adults. The review failed to consider causes of CC in a quarter of the population, those under age 18 years. As a pediatrician, that deficiency disturbed me. The absence of age-related recommendations results in children with CC being treated with measures recommended for adults.

CONCLUSION: It is necessary to consider the possibility of this rare disease in order to avoid inappropriate treatments and in the hope that future therapeutic advances (somatostatin analogs, mTOR inhibitors) improve patients' experience and the progression of respiratory function.

AbstractChronic cough is one of the most common complaints for which patients in China seek medical attention. However, there are no nationwide data on the prevalence and socioeconomic burden of chronic cough. Although approximately 50% of Chinese men smoke, the vast majority of patients presenting for evaluation of chronic cough are never smokers. An equal sex distribution and a middle-aged predominance have been observed in the Chinese chronic cough population, despite demonstration of a higher cough reflex sensitivity in females and older patients. The role of air pollution in the distinct age and sex distribution requi...

AbstractIntroductionWhy do only some of patients who are prescribed angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitors (ACE ‐I) develop cough? The pathogenesis of ACE‐I‐induced cough remains controversial and requires further studies.ObjectiveWe aim to investigate whether asthma is a contributing cause of ACE ‐I‐induced cough.MethodsPatients attending a cardiology clinic between March 2016 and March 2017 who were diagnosed with ACE ‐I induced cough were included in this study. ACE‐I‐induced cough was defined as cough which developed within four weeks after initiation of ACE‐I therapy and which improved within four ...
