AbstractPurposeThe association of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) severity and related health status with sleep quality remains unclear. We aimed to investigate the association between COPD and sleep quality in the Greek national branch of the UNLOCK cohort.MethodsA sample of 257 COPD patients enrolled cross-sectionally from primary care in Greece. Sleep quality was assessed by the COPD and Asthma Sleep Impact Scale (CASIS-7 items) questionnaire (higher score indicates worse sleep quality). We tested for associations of sleep impairment with health status (CAT and mMRC scores), exacerbations, hospitalizations,...

ConclusionsFitness tracker sleep efficiency and wake counts demonstrate clinical utility as predictive of asthma-specific night-time wakening and daily FEV1. Fitness tracker sleep data demonstrated predictive capability for daily asthma outcomes.

Obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) syndrome, the most frequent sleep ‐disordered breathing, is a comorbidity of asthma, whose prevalence covers about 49.5% of asthmatic adult patients. A 61‐year‐old female patient, affected by severe allergic asthma and obesity, started treatment with omalizumab and underwent polysomnography showing a severe OSA pattern (apnoea /hypopnoea index (AHI): 72.7). After six months, she showed functional improvement and good asthma symptoms control and underwent a new polygraphy for the persistence of the night symptoms which showed an ameliorated, despite still severe, OSA pattern (AHI: 31.9)....

This study evaluates the relationship of PA to outcomes after open ventral hernia repair (OVHR).MethodsA prospective institutional database was queried for patients undergoing OVHR. Demographics, operative characteristics, and outcomes were evaluated by the reported PA and the administration of beta-lactam prophylaxis (BLP).ResultsAllergy histories were reviewed in 1178 patients. PA was reported in 21.6% of patients, with 55.5% reporting rash or hives, 15.0% airway compromise or anaphylaxis, and 29.5% no specific reaction. BLP was administered to 76.3% of patients, including 22.1% of PA patients and 89.9% of patients witho...

CONCLUSION: Post-deployment pulmonary evaluation should focus on common diseases such as asthma and airway hyperreactivity, and include testing for upper airway disorders. Diffuse lung diseases were rarely diagnosed while numerous co-morbidities were common. PMID: 32017933 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
