The comparison between pulmonary rehabilitation with music therapy and pulmonary rehabilitation alone on respiratory drive, cortisol level and asthma control in patients hospitalized with asthma exacerbation.

CONCLUSION: Passive music therapy and its effects on the mental state of patients seem to improve the efficiency of the respiratory system. The results of this experimental study demonstrate that a complementary music therapy has beneficial effects on the treatment of asthma exacerbations in adults.

This article is adapted from Jessica Helfand’s book “Face,” an elaborately illustrated A to Z of the face, from historical mugshots to Instagram posts. Hardly the first to postulate on the graphic evidence of the grimace, Darwin hoped to introduce a system by which facial expressions might be properly evaluated. He shared with many of his generation a predisposition toward history: simply put, the idea that certain facial traits might have a basis in evolution. Empirically, the idea itself is not unreasonable. We are, after all, genetically predisposed to share traits with those in our familial line, occa...

AbstractPurposeChronic rhinosinusitis (CRS) disease burden is associated with pulmonary status in asthmatic CRS patients. Asthma-related emergency department (ED) usage is a predictor of asthma-related mortality. We sought to determine whether measures of CRS disease burden are associated with asthma-related ED usage.MethodsWe prospectively recruited 263 asthmatic CRS patients for this cross-sectional study. CRS burden was measured using the 22-item Sinonasal Outcome Test (SNOT-22), and patient-reported CRS-related antibiotic usage and CRS-related oral corticosteroids usage over the preceding year. Asthma-related ED visits...

In conclusion, steroid hyporesponsiveness in obese asthmatic patients can be attributed to Th17 cytokines which are responsible for the dysregulation of the GRα/GRβ ratio and the inflammatory response.

Evidence from clinical and epidemiological studies indicates that asthma is associated with allergic diseases including hay fever, allergic rhinitis, and eczema. Genetic analysis demonstrated that asthma had a positive genetic correlation with allergic diseases. A Mendelian randomization (MR) analysis using the rs16969968 single-nucleotide variant as the instrumental variable indicated that smoking was associated with increased risk of asthma. However, in a different MR analysis, smoking was significantly associated with reduced hay fever and reduced allergic sensitization risk. These findings revealed inconsistencies in t...

AbstractBackgroundAtopic dermatitis (AD) is a chronic inflammatory skin disease common among infants and children. It is associated with a high risk of allergies, asthma, and mental health problems. Attempts have been made to use probiotics in clinical interventions for AD.ObjectiveOur objective was to perform an updated meta-analysis of recently published studies to evaluate the effect of probiotics in the prevention and treatment of AD in children and to further understand the role of probiotics in AD interventions in the clinic.MethodWe searched the PubMed/MEDLINE, Embase, Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials,...
