A comparison of low dose tiletamine‐zolazepam or acepromazine combined with methadone for pre‐anaesthetic medication in cats
Conclusion and clinical relevanceLow dose tiletamine‐zolazepam combined with methadone provided superior sedation to ACE. Recovery quality was similar, although time to standing was longer. (Source: Veterinary Anaesthesia and Analgesia)

Comparison of respiratory function during TIVA and isoflurane anaesthesia in ponies Part II: breathing patterns and transdiaphragmatic pressure
Conclusion and clinical relevanceMarked differences in breathing pattern and transdiaphragmatic pressure exist during inhalation‐ and TIVA and these should be taken into account for clinical estimation of anaesthetic depth. (Source: Veterinary Anaesthesia and Analgesia)

Greater fear reactivity and psychophysiological hyperactivity among infants with later conduct problems and callous‐unemotional traits
ConclusionsThe discrepancy between the biobehavioral correlates of conduct problems with callous‐unemotional traits in infancy and those reported from studies of older children and adults suggests that the etiology of this behavioral phenotype may be more complex than a simple genetic maturation model.

Genetic diversity and molecular epidemiology of human rhinoviruses in South Africa
ConclusionAll three type of RV were identified in South Africa, although RV‐A and RV‐C were more common than RV‐B. RV was associated with symptomatic respiratory illness; however, there was no association between RV type and disease severity. (Source: Influenza and Other Respiratory Viruses)

Trends in wheeze in Dutch school children and the role of medication use
ConclusionAn increasing trend of Dutch school children with “no wheeze,” and decreasing trends of children with “discontinued” and “continued” wheeze between 1989 and 2005 could not be explained by (increased) medication use. This suggests that wheeze prevalence is not masked by medication use, but is truly declining. Pediatr Pulmonol. © 2014 Wiley Periodicals, Inc. (Source: Pediatric Pulmonology)

Using a mobile health application to support self-management in COPD: a qualitative study.
CONCLUSION: Patients were able to use the mHealth application, interpret clinical data, and use these within their self-management approach regardless of previous knowledge. Telehealth interventions can complement current clinical care pathways to support self-management behaviour. PMID: 24982491 [PubMed - in process] (Source: The British Journal of General Practice)

Update in sepsis and pulmonary infections 2013.
Abstract The Journal has been in the vanguard of publications of the respiratory microbiome, including a National Institutes of Health Workshop report, establishing the normal microbiome in patients with various risks, and in the correlation of microbiome changes with disease exacerbations and lung transplant. A new classification scheme for healthcare-associated pneumonia, risks for nosocomial Pseudomonas pneumonia, and associations between community-acquired pneumonia and risks or outcomes have been reported. The increasingly recognized role of viral respiratory tract infections was reflected in publications rega...

Update in lung transplantation 2013.
Abstract Research in pulmonary transplantation is actively evolving in quality and scope to meet the challenges of a growing population of lung allograft recipients. In 2013, research groups leveraged large publicly available datasets in addition to multicenter research networks and single-center studies to make significant contributions to our knowledge and clinical care in the areas of donor use, clinical transplant outcomes, mechanisms of rejection, infectious complications, and chronic allograft dysfunction.

Physical therapy-driven quality improvement to promote early mobility in the intensive care unit.
We describe a physical therapist-led program to introduce such changes in a medical-surgical and a cardiovascular ICU. Interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary meetings and education sessions informed critical care team members about early mobilization and encouraged knowledge sharing for safety and effectiveness. A lead physical therapist was appointed to advocate for early mobility and developed solutions to overcome the identified barriers. After the initiation of this program, the number of ICU patients receiving physical therapy evaluations increased from 364 in 2011-2012 to 542 in 2012-2013. In this article, we descri...

The Evolution of Respiratory Cryptosporidiosis: Evidence for Transmission by Inhalation.
Abstract SUMMARY: The protozoan parasite Cryptosporidium infects all major vertebrate groups and causes significant diarrhea in humans, with a spectrum of diseases ranging from asymptomatic to life-threatening. Children and immunodeficient individuals are disproportionately affected, especially in developing countries, where cryptosporidiosis contributes substantially to morbidity and mortality in preschool-age children. Despite the enormous disease burden from cryptosporidiosis, no antiprotozoal agent or vaccine exists for effective treatment or prevention. Cryptosporidiosis involving the respiratory tract has bee...

Limited efficacy of Fever Tag(®) temperature sensing ear tags in calves with naturally occurring bovine respiratory disease or induced bovine viral diarrhea virus infection.
Abstract Temperature sensing ear tags were tested in 1) auction-derived calves with 50% incidence of bovine respiratory disease, and 2) specific pathogen-free calves infected with bovine virus diarrhea virus. There were no false positives, but tag placement, probe displacement, and a high threshold for activation all contributed to failure to reliably detect sick calves.

Reoperative lung transplantation for donor-derived pulmonary mucormycosis.
Abstract A 64-year-old male with end-stage lung disease underwent right orthotopic lung transplantation. After doing well initially, he developed acute hypoxemic respiratory failure with allograft pneumonia. Donor operative cultures demonstrated mold of the Mucor species, which were corroborated by donor endobronchial cultures obtained near the right mainstem bronchial anastomosis. The patient was treated with reoperative bilateral orthotopic lung transplantation in combination with antifungal agents. The operation was performed successfully, using lungs donated after cardiac death and treated with ex vivo lung ...
