Mortality in patients with community ‐onset pneumonia at low risk of drug‐resistant pathogens: Impact of β‐lactam plus macrolide combination therapy
ABSTRACT Background and objectiveDrug‐resistant pathogen (DRP) risk stratification is important for choosing a treatment strategy for community‐onset pneumonia. Evidence for benefits of non‐antipseudomonal β‐lactam plus macrolide combination therapy (BLM) on mortality is limited in patients at low DRP risk. Risk factors for mortality remain to be clarified. MethodsPost hoc analysis using a prospective multicentre study cohort of community‐onset pneumonia was performed to assess 30‐day differences in mortality between non‐antipseudomonal β‐lactam monotherapy (BL) and BLM groups. Logistic regression...

Likelihood of pulmonary hypertension in patients with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis and emphysema
ConclusionOur findings indicate that the reported association between CPFE and PHT is explained by the summed baseline CT extents of ILD and emphysema. Once baseline severity is taken into account, CPFE is not selectively associated with a malignant microvascular phenotype, when compared with IPF patients without emphysema. (Source: Respirology)

Models of care for non ‐invasive ventilation in the Acute COPD Comparison of three Tertiary hospitals (ACT3) study
ABSTRACT Background and objectiveNon‐invasive ventilation (NIV) improves clinical outcomes in hypercapnic acute exacerbations of COPD (AECOPD), but the optimal model of care remains unknown. MethodsWe conducted a prospective observational non‐inferiority study comparing three models of NIV care: general ward (Ward) (1:4 nurse to patient ratio, thrice weekly consultant ward round), a high dependency unit (HDU) (1:2 ratio, twice daily ward round) and an intensive care unit (ICU) (1:1 ratio, twice daily ward round) model in three similar teaching tertiary hospitals. Changes in arterial blood gases (ABG) and clinical outco...

Unfavourable outcome of glucocorticoid treatment in suspected idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis
ABSTRACT Background and objectiveThe diagnostic classification of ‘possible idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (posIPF)’ is characterized by a radiological pattern of inconsistent usual interstitial pneumonia (UIP) on high‐resolution computed tomography (HRCT) scan and a UIP pattern in surgical lung biopsy (SLB). The evidence base to guide treatment for patients with posIPF is lacking; the clinician must choose between observation, treatment with immunomodulatory agents or anti‐fibrotic agents. MethodsTo evaluate outcomes of immunomodulatory treatment, a multicentre cohort of 59 posIPF patients treated with pred...

Comparison of outpatient and home ‐based exercise training programmes for COPD: A systematic review and meta‐analysis
Abstract Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease is a common, preventable and treatable disease. Exercise training programmes (ETPs) improve symptoms, health‐related quality of life (HRQoL) and exercise capacity, but the optimal setting is unknown. In this review, we compared the effects of ETPs in different settings on HRQoL and exercise capacity. We searched (5 July 2016) the Cochrane Airways Group Specialised Register, ClinicalTrials.gov and World Health Organization trials portal. We selected studies, extracted data and assessed risk of bias with two independent reviewers. We calculated mean differences (MD) with 95% C...
