Noninvasive Cardiorespiratory Signals Analysis for Asthma Evolution Monitoring in Preschool Children

Conclusion: Results suggest that HRV analysis could be useful for the continuous monitoring of ANS anomalies present in asthma, thus contributing to evaluate the evolution of the disease, which is especially challenging in young children. Significance: Noninvasive ANS assessment using HRV analysis could be useful in the continuous monitoring of asthma in children.

Conclusions: Our findings suggest an exposure-response relationship between inhalable cumulative cobalt exposure and CC16 levels in blood, which may reflect an injury or a reparation process in the lungs.

CONCLUSION: Probable ACO is associated with WTC exposures. Further study of ACO is needed to understand the development of this and other environmentally or occupationally-related airway diseases, and how to prevent these in disasters like 9/11. PMID: 32930623 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Stolpe C, Tannapfel A Abstract A 47-year-old male presented with dyspnoea and pulmonary nodules. He had longstanding asthma, chronic rhinosinusitis and a history of seizures, having been treated with valproic acid for years. A transbronchial biopsy and a bronchoalveolar lavage yielded a eosinophilic bronchitis and alveolitis without any malignant cells. The patient was then treated with oral corticosteroids for a few months, and the antiepileptic medication was switched to levetiracetam. Within a few months the dyspnoea improved and both the pulmonary nodules and the eosinophilia in the full blood count re...

Abstract Painful temporomandibular disorders (TMD) in children and adolescents may impact negatively the individual ´s life. The presence of comorbidities associated with TMD tends to increase the persistence of pain and to facilitate its chronification. Objective To investigate the presence of other painful conditions and systemic diseases and their association with painful TMD. Methodology In this cross-se ctional study, 690 adolescents aged between 12-14 years old were evaluated through questionnaires and clinical examinations. Results Painful TMD was found in 16.2% of the sample, with a significant association wi...

AbstractIntroductionViral respiratory tract infections are the leading cause of acute wheezing in children with a significant risk of hospital admission, risk of recurrence and subsequent asthma. Human respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) and human rhinovirus (RV) in childhood wheezing are widely studied; however, accessible PCR assays enabled diagnosis of other pathogens, including bocavirus (hBOV) and metapneumovirus (hMPV).ObjectivesThe aim of the study was to evaluate the prevalence of respiratory viruses in children hospitalized for acute wheezing along with demographic and clinical data.MethodsWe enrolled 101 children,n...
