ConclusionHigh-intensity exercise training generates similar benefits in patients with COPD regardless of whether presenting asthma overlap or not.

CONCLUSIONS: Social stigmas related to depression and anxiety may lead to the underreporting of FMD. Chronic disease management programs in Illinois should consider integrating mental health services. PMID: 32133865 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

In conclusion, this study suggests that epigenetic age acceleration is significantly associated with lung function in women older than 50 years. We hypothesised that this could be due to menopause. However, we have observed that menopause has minimal effect and therefore there is possibility of other unknown physiological factors at older age in females mediating the epigenetic age acceleration effect on lung function. While, it is still unknown what exactly epigenetic aging from DNA methylation measures, this study suggests it can be utilised as one of the important factors to assess women's lung health in old age. DNA me...

Undergoing earlier menopause is a sign of a greater burden of age-related damage and dysfunction, so it should not be surprising to see that this correlates with a greater incidence of chronic disease in the years thereafter. People with a greater burden of cell and tissue damage tend to exhibit all of the manifestations of aging earlier than their less damaged peers. These variations in damage burden and consequences from individual to individual are near all the results of lifestyle choices, particularly smoking, weight, and exercise, and environmental factors such as exposure to chronic viral infection. Genetics plays o...

Purpose of review Severe asthma is often associated with numerous comorbidities that complicate disease management and affect patient's outcomes. They contribute to poor disease control and mimic asthma symptoms. Although some comorbidities such as obstructive sleep apnea, bronchiectasis, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease are generally well recognized, many other may remain undiagnosed but may be detected in an expert specialist setting. The management of comorbidities seems to improve asthma outcomes, and optimizes therapy by avoiding overtreatment. The present review provides recent knowledge regarding the most...

Conclusion: The vast majority of patients gained a clinically important improvement. Symptom burden may be more important for selecting patients for PR than diagnosis.

This study aimed to compare the COPD severity (GOLD III-IV vs I-II) in both women and men in PALOMB cohort.Diagnosed COPD patients were included by their pulmonologists. The following variables were collected: age, sex, BMI, FEV1, dyspnea (mMRC), the frequency of exacerbations, static hyperinflation (RV/TLC ≥130%) and comorbidities.35.64% of 2,259 COPD patients followed were women (64 average age). Statistically significant (P≤0.001) findings in female COPD patients were as follows: younger, underweight, more likely to be current cigarette smokers, more frequent static hyperinflation (76.1% vs 70.6%) and higher dyspn...

The objective was to evaluate the impact of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease(COPD)on sleep quality through the CASIS questionnaire(COPD and Asthma Sleep Impact Scale).Method: Observational and multicenter study, in patients with stable COPD. Sociodemographic and clinical variables, symptoms, comorbidities, pulmonary function tests, treatments and the CAT and CASIS questionnaires were collected. CASIS scores range between 0-100(higher scores mean worse sleep quality)and were divided into 3 tertiles to compare their characteristics(T1:

Pulmonary Rehabilitation (PR) remains highly inaccessible to patients with chronic respiratory diseases (CRD). We assessed the effects of a minimal-resource community-based PR programme in patients with CRD.Seventy-seven patients (48 male;68±11yrs;57.7±22.2%FEV1%predicted; 80.3±19.6FVC%predicted) with COPD(n=52), asthma(n=13), asthma-COPD overlap(n=3), interstitial lung disease(n=7), lung transplant due to COPD(n=1) and bronchiectasis(n=1) participated in a 12-week community-based PR programme. The modified Medical Research Council–dyspnoea scale (mMRC), Saint George’s Respiratory Questionn...

Yafei Tan1,2, Omer Van den Bergh2, Jiang Qiu1* and Andreas von Leupoldt2* 1Faculty of Psychology, Southwest University, Chongqing, China 2Health Psychology, KU Leuven, Leuven, Belgium Dyspnea is a prevalent interoceptive sensation and the aversive cardinal symptom in many cardiorespiratory diseases as well as in mental disorders. Especially the unpredictability of the occurrence of dyspnea episodes has been suggested to be highly anxiety provoking for affected patients. Moreover, previous studies demonstrated that unpredictable exteroceptive stimuli increased self-reports and electrophysiological responses of an...
