Physiotherapy during and after acute exacerbation of COPD
CONCLUSION: The physiotherapist has a major role to assume in per- and post-exacerbation management of people with COPD; it is up to him to assess the patient and to put into place an individualized pulmonary rehabilitation program; it is also up to him to provide long-term support, helping the patient to maintain an active lifestyle while coping with a chronic pathology.PMID:35221161 | DOI:10.1016/j.rmr.2022.02.056 (Source: Revue des Maladies Respiratoires)

Pulmonary actinomycosis caused by Actinomycesodontolyticus in a two-year-old child
CONCLUSIONS: This is the second pediatric case of pulmonary actinomycosis due to A. Odontolyticus reported in the literature. The clinical symptoms and imaging are not specific. The presence of sulphide granules on pathological examination or in germ culture at a sterile site confirms the diagnosis. Prolonged antibiotic therapy is still recommended to avoid pulmonary sequels.PMID:35221160 | DOI:10.1016/j.rmr.2022.01.019 (Source: Revue des Maladies Respiratoires)

Catamenial hemothorax: Results of 11  operated cases
CONCLUSION: In patients suffering from catamenial hemothorax with diaphragmatic fenestrations, we recommend phrenoplasty using synthetic patches associated with pleural talcage and 6-month complementary concomitant hormone therapy.PMID:35219560 | DOI:10.1016/j.rmr.2021.12.009 (Source: Revue des Maladies Respiratoires)

Hepatopulmonary syndrome: Prevalence, pathophysiology and clinical implications
This article aims to provide a comprehensive review of the clinical and epidemiological definitions of HPS and to describe its experimental models as well as recent advances in understanding the pathophysiology of the disease, with specific focus on BMP-9 and its signaling pathway.PMID:35219561 | DOI:10.1016/j.rmr.2022.02.055 (Source: Revue des Maladies Respiratoires)

Digital tools for remote monitoring of asthma patients: Gadgets or revolution?
Rev Mal Respir. 2022 Feb 23:S0761-8425(22)00102-4. doi: 10.1016/j.rmr.2022.01.018. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTMobile applications, connected spirometers, connected inhalers, connected bracelets, connected watches, connected stethoscopes, connected air quality sensors ; digital tools in asthma treatment and management are on the upswing. They enable the functioning of advanced remote monitoring systems, combining continuous data collection from the patient's home and early intervention by health professionals. The first part of this review details the theoretical arguments in favour of using these digital tools for remot...

Smoking behaviours among staff of two university hospitals in Paris, 2021
CONCLUSION: Our results illustrate a need to reach high-prevalence categories of smokers in a hospital setting, the objective being to help them to consider quitting, and also a need to train health professionals in smoking cessation counseling.PMID:35210125 | DOI:10.1016/j.rmr.2021.12.010 (Source: Revue des Maladies Respiratoires)

Potential implication of the IgA-pIgR system in idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis
Rev Mal Respir. 2022 Feb 18:S0761-8425(22)00028-6. doi: 10.1016/j.rmr.2022.01.007. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTIdiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is a lethal respiratory disease characterized by the excessive deposition of extracellular matrix in the alveolar zones. The bronchiolar epithelium has been implicated in the development of this disease and is capable of secreting IgA into the airway lumen thanks to its expression of the polymeric immunoglobulin receptor. Several elements indicate a dysregulation of this system, such as raised serum IgA levels in IPF patients and the pro-fibrotic effect of IgA on several key c...

CD8 < sup > + < /sup > T cells and fibrocytes: dangerous interplay in the distal bronchi of patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease?
Rev Mal Respir. 2022 Feb 18:S0761-8425(22)00031-6. doi: 10.1016/j.rmr.2022.01.010. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTChronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a chronic respiratory disease characterized by chronic inflammation and bronchial remodeling, resulting in airflow limitation. Several studies indicate a detrimental role of CD8+ T cells in the evolution of the disease, however the mechanisms of CD8+T cell activation in the lungs of COPD patients are still not understood. Fibrocytes, whose density is associated with bronchial remodeling and bronchial obstruction, have immunomodulatory properties. We will describe h...
