FDA updates bronchoscope cleaning guidelines
The FDA released new guidelines today for cleaning and reprocessing flexible bronchoscopes to prevent infections associated with improperly cleaned units. Bronchoscopes must undergo reprocessing between uses, with broncoschopes specifically positioned to “pose a greater likelihood of microbial transmission and represent a high risk of infection if they are not adequately reprocessed,” according to the FDA. The new guidelines, meant to avoid outbreaks of infections that can spread hospital-wide, include strict adherence to manufacturer reprocessing instructions. The Agency said it was critically important that a...

When a common cold turns life-threatening
No one is born a parent. But when we have our first child, we somehow figure out how to clothe and feed him. We love him, tickle him and sing him lullabies. And then he gets sick for the first time. As we lie on the floor next to the crib while that gorgeous baby of ours cries, how do we know whether to hold his hand and rub his back or get up and call an ambulance? Erin and Dan Boudreau can tell you. They’ve been there. The rare scenario that makes for nightmares happened to them. First just a cold, then pneumonia In March 2013, when the Boudreau’s son Walker was 10.5 months old, he came down with a cold...

Uptake Medical wins expanded CE Mark for InterVapor
Uptake Medical said today it won CE Mark approval in the European Union for its InterVapor ablation device, now indicated to treat patients who suffer from severe emphysema. The InterVapor device uses heated water vapor to reduce bronchoscopic lung volume in patients with heterogenous upper lobe emphysema, the Tustin, Calif.-based company said. “The traditional treatment options for severe emphysema patients have been very limited which is why we have remained committed over the past decade to finding a more meaningful treatment alternative for this progressive disease. Gaining CE Mark is a major milestone for our co...

Molly’s story: Care for a rare condition close to home
Curly-haired, bright-eyed Molly Leary pushes a plastic baby stroller filled with a pile of books and one baby doll. She spends a sunny afternoon on the lawn reading, singing ”Itsy Bitsy Spider” and playing her purple guitar. She sits down to read with her mom Kerry and then pops up into what feels like a never-ending spin. “Dizzy?” Kerry asks. “Nope!” says Molly with a big grin. Her love of life is infectious. Watching this unstoppable five-year-old twirl around in circles, you’d never know that she’s quite mixed up on the inside. Molly was born with heterotaxy, a rare congen...

Gene therapy breakthrough for cystic fibrosis
ConclusionThis RCT showed that a new non-viral-based gene therapy for cystic fibrosis was able to produce “modest” benefits in lung function compared to a placebo. The treatments were given once a month for a year. The study had many strengths, including its double-blind randomised design, recruiting adequate numbers to demonstrate real differences between groups, and using pre-specified outcomes and sub-analysis. This means we can be confident in the reliability of the findings presented. Although the findings of this study are encouraging, there are always limitations. These include: This study was relativel...

Sanovas said last week that it won FDA 510(k) clearance for its PulmoVia working channel, part of its platform designed to improve diagnostic and therapeutic interventions in the lung. Working channels are normally integrated into bronchoscopes with optics as 1 piece, but the PulmoVia working channel is separate, CEO Larry Gerrans told MassDevice.com. “We took a look at the paradigm of bronchial intervention and found it was limited by the spatial constraints of the items itself, and we wanted to evolve the whole process,” Gerrans said.

Why You Should Always Inspect Your Asthma Inhaler Before Using It
By: Laura Geggel Published: April 17, 2015 06:16am ET on LiveScience. A woman in Australia had an unexpected medical emergency on New Year's Eve after she accidentally inhaled one of her earrings, according to a new case report. The 41-year-old woman was at a New Year's Eve party when she felt like she was starting to wheeze. She had asthma, and reached into her purse for her inhaler, according to the report published April 9 in the journal BMJ Case Reports. The inhaler rattled when she picked it up, but the woman dismissed it as a loose connection within the device. [8 Strange Signs You're Having an Allergic Reacti...

How Do Airway Malacias Present?
Discussion Stridor is a variably pitched sound caused by increased turbulence and airflow through a narrowed part of the large airway. Usually due to narrowing of the larynx or extrathoracic trachea, stridor is usually inspiratory. Biphasic stridor usually is due to a fixed airway obstruction at the level of the glottis or subglottis but may also extend to the mid-thoracic trachea. Stridor is different than stertor which is a heavy-snoring, inspiratory sound occurring in coma or deep sleep, sometimes due to obstruction of the larynx or upper airways. Causes of stertor include choanal stenosis, enlarged tonsils and/or aden...
