Br J Radiol. 2021 Sep 19:20201005. doi: 10.1259/bjr.20201005. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTThis commentary reviews the contribution of imaging by CT and MRI to functional assessment in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). CT can help individualize the assessment of COPD by quantifying emphysema, air trapping and airway wall thickening, potentially leading to more specific treatments for these distinct components of COPD. Longitudinal changes in these metrics can help assess progression or improvement. On hyperpolarized gas MRI, the apparent diffusion coefficient of provides an index of airspace enlargement reflec...
That gritty, itchy feeling in your eyes can arise from many causes, including too much screen time, and eye drops may only make it worse.
-Soo Jang Air pollutants include toxic particles and gases emitted in large quantities from many different combustible materials. They also include particulate matter (PM) and ozone, and biological contaminants, such as viruses and bacteria, which can penetrate the human airway and reach the bloodstream, triggering airway inflammation, dysfunction, and fibrosis. Pollutants that accumulate in the lungs exacerbate symptoms of respiratory diseases such as asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Asthma, a heterogeneous disease with complex pathological mechanisms, is characterized by particular symptoms su...
Conclusions: This health impact assessment illustrates that household air pollution due to solid fuel use among women in Adama leads to premature death and a substantial quantity of DALYs. Therefore, decreasing or eliminating solid fuel use for cooking purposes could prevent deaths and improve quality of life.
Acute exacerbation of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (AECOPD) is an important event in the course of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease that negatively affects patients ’ quality of life and leads to ...
Incidence of COPD - a group of lung diseases that cause breathing difficulties - in England was down 51 per cent in 2020 compared to 2019, a damning Department of Health report found.
CONCLUSIONS: Patients with COPD-CRF who received NIVH had statistically significant reductions in hospitalizations and ED visits compared with patients not treated with NIVH. Further research is needed to examine the effect of NIVH on mortality.PMID:34533913 | DOI:10.37765/ajmc.2021.88743
