Lung cancer tissue diagnosis in poor lung function: addressing the ongoing percutaneous lung biopsy FEV1 paradox using Heimlich valve
Many centres continue to decline percutaneous lung biopsy (PLB) in patients with poor lung function (particularly FEV1 <1 L) due to the theoretically increased risk of pneumothorax. This practice limits access to novel lung cancer therapies and minimally invasive surgical techniques. Our retrospective single-centre analysis of 212 patients undergoing PLB, all performed prospectively and blinded to lung function, demonstrates that using ambulatory Heimlich valve chest drain (HVCD) to treat significant postbiopsy pneumothorax facilitates safe, diagnostic, early discharge lung biopsy irrespective of lung function with...

Nasal high flow oxygen therapy in patients with COPD reduces respiratory rate and tissue carbon dioxide while increasing tidal and end-expiratory lung volumes: a randomised crossover trial
Abstract Patients with COPD using long-term oxygen therapy (LTOT) over 15 h per day have improved outcomes. As inhalation of dry cold gas is detrimental to mucociliary clearance, humidified nasal high flow (NHF) oxygen may reduce frequency of exacerbations, while improving lung function and quality of life in this cohort. In this randomised crossover study, we assessed short-term physiological responses to NHF therapy in 30 males chronically treated with LTOT. LTOT (2–4 L/min) through nasal cannula was compared with NHF at 30 L/min from an AIRVO through an Optiflow nasal interface with entrained supple...

EBUS-guided mediastinal lung cancer staging: monitoring of quality standards improves performance
This audit examined key performance indices related to endobronchial ultrasound (EBUS)-guided mediastinal lung cancer staging before and after the introduction of defined quality standards, at four independent EBUS centres in one cancer network. Data from 642 procedures were prospectively collected and analysed. The introduction of standards was associated with a significant increase (p<0.001) in sampling of key mediastinal lymph node stations (4R, 4L and 7) and a reduction in the variability of staging sensitivity between centres. These data reinforce the requirement for an appropriate regulatory framework for EBUS-tra...

Treatment failure due to use of a 'ramp option on pressure support home ventilators
Introduction Algorithms for monitoring home non-invasive ventilation (NIV) have been recently proposed.1–3 Following this strategy, we detected three cases of transient ineffective ventilation due to the use of a ‘ramp’ option on home pressure support (PS) ventilators. The ‘ramp’ option is a comfort setting initially made available on CPAP devices. This option exists in pressure-cycled ventilators, allowing a progressive increase of expiratory positive airway pressure (EPAP) only. A « ramp » option has also recently been made available for PS: to our knowledge, three home ventilato...

Why vessels do matter in pulmonary disease
In addition to structural abnormalities of the diaphragm, congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) presents with severe hypoplasia of lung tissue involving both the pulmonary vasculature and the airways. These developmental defects often yield a severe phenotype of pulmonary hypertension (PH) and lung function impairment. Despite adequate surgical repair of the diaphragm, neonatal mortality of CDH remains high, due to ineffectiveness of inhaled nitric oxide (NO) and absence of alternative therapy for PH in the newborn. Russo et al1 demonstrate that maternally administered sildenafil reaches therapeutic levels in the rabbit fe...

Whats hot that the other lot got
Statins in pneumonia Statins are known to have anti-inflammatory and immunomodulatory effects. Retrospective studies have suggested a benefit in community-acquired pneumonia. This prospective study (Clin Infect Dis doi:10.1093/cid/ciw174) enrolled a total of 2016 patients, 483 (24%) were statin users, 1533 (76%) were not. The primary outcome was length of hospital stay (LOS) with mortality a secondary outcome. No statistical difference was found between LOS and mortality in the two groups, even when stratified for pneumonia severity. The authors conclude that there is no evidence of benefit for statin users. Endobronchial ...

Heart involvement in cystic fibrosis: A specific cystic fibrosis-related myocardial changes?
Cystic fibrosis is a complex multi-systemic chronic disease characterized by progressive organ dysfunction with development of fibrosis, possibly affecting the heart. Over the last four decades pathological, experimental, and clinical evidence points towards the existence of a specific myocardial involvement in cystic fibrosis. Multi-modality cardiac imaging, especially recent echocardiographic techniques, evidenced diastolic and/or systolic ventricular dysfunction in cystic fibrosis leading to the concept of a cystic fibrosis-related cardiomyopathy.

Patent foramen ovale in idiopathic pulmonary arterial hypertension: Long-term risk and morbidity
Little is known about the presence of patent foramen ovale in idiopathic pulmonary arterial hypertension. While there is suspected worsening of hypoxemia confounding assessment and management of pulmonary hypertension, as well as possible increased morbidity from paradoxical emboli, there may be theoretical relief of worsening right-sided pressures by the same mechanism of right-to-left shunting.

Sildenafil does not Improve Exercise Capacity under Acute Hypoxia Exposure
Int J Sports MedDOI: 10.1055/s-0035-1559774The increase in pulmonary arterial pressure (PAP) due to hypoxic pulmonary vasoconstriction (HPV) could be a limiting factor for physical performance during hypoxic exposure. Sildenafil has been shown to reduce PAP in situations of moderate or severe hypoxia, and consequently its role as an ergogenic aid and even a possible doping substance must be considered. We performed a double-blind crossover study to determine the effects of sildenafil on cardiovascular, respiratory and metabolic parameters in normoxia and during acute exposure to hypobaric hypoxia (4 000 m) at rest and ...

Clinical features, aetiology and outcome of bacteraemic pneumonia in neutropenic cancer patients
ConclusionBacteraemic pneumonia is a frequent complication among NCP and is mainly caused by P. aeruginosa and S. pneumoniae. The emergence of MDR organisms is of special concern. Despite the improvement in the management of cancer patients, case‐fatality rates of NCP with bacteraemic pneumonia remain high. Urgent assessment is needed to identify a better approach for the management and support of these patients. (Source: Respirology)

Review of the Diagnostic Challenges of Lambert-Eaton Syndrome Revealed Through Three Case Reports.
Abstract Lambert-Eaton syndrome (LES) is a rare immune-mediated disorder characterized by proximal leg weakness, autonomic symptoms and hypoactive tendon reflexes. The paraneoplastic form is associated with small-cell lung cancer in 50-60% of cases, whereas the remaining cases are found in younger adults with a higher likelihood of coexisting autoimmune disease. The early recognition of LES is crucial for improving clinical outcomes but remains a major challenge. In this review, we analyze the clinical characteristics and diagnostic considerations in treating LES through a series of three case studies, one of which...

In Vitro Toxicological Assessment of Cobalt Ferrite Nanoparticles in Several Mammalian Cell Types.
Abstract Nanoparticles have been widely used in various fields due to the superior physicochemical properties and functions. As a result, human exposure to nanoparticles increases dramatically. Previous researches have shown that nanoparticles could travel through the respiratory, digestive system, or skin into the blood and then to the secondary organs such as the brain, heart, and liver. Besides, the nanoparticle toxicity is controversial and dependent on the sensitivity of the cell type, route of exposure, and condition, as well as their characteristics. Similarly, cobalt ferrite nanoparticles (CoFe2O4-NPs) have...

The effect of chronic exposure to high palmitic acid concentrations on the aerobic metabolism of human endothelial EA.hy926 cells.
Abstract A chronic elevation of circulating free fatty acids (FFAs) is associated with diseases like obesity or diabetes and can lead to lipotoxicity. The goals of this study were to assess the influence of chronic exposure to high palmitic acid (PAL) levels on mitochondrial respiratory functions in endothelial cells and isolated mitochondria. Human umbilical vein endothelial cells (EA.hy926 line) were grown for 6 days in a medium containing either 100 or 150 μM PAL. Growth at high PAL concentrations induced a considerable increase in fatty acid-supplied respiration and a reduction of mitochondrial respiration d...

Molecular cloning and functional characterization of porcine E74-like factor 4 (ELF4).
Abstract E74-like factor 4 (ELF4) is a novel transcription factor that initiates transcription of type I interferon (IFN) genes to control diverse pathogens. Here, porcine ELF4 (poELF4) was cloned and its role in type I IFN signaling was investigated in different porcine cell lines. Full-length cDNA of poELF4 encodes 663 amino acid residues and ectopic expression of poELF4 significantly induced IFN-β production. Interestingly, difference from the human ELF4 (huELF4), poELF4 mutants lacking the serine/threonine rich domain, which has been demonstrated to be responsible for the phosphorylation of huELF4, were still...

Fossorial Origin of the Turtle Shell.
Abstract The turtle shell is a complex structure that currently serves a largely protective function in this iconically slow-moving group [1]. Developmental [2, 3] and fossil [4-7] data indicate that one of the first steps toward the shelled body plan was broadening of the ribs (approximately 50 my before the completed shell [5]). Broadened ribs alone provide little protection [8] and confer significant locomotory [9, 10] and respiratory [9, 11] costs. They increase thoracic rigidity [8], which decreases speed of locomotion due to shortened stride length [10], and they inhibit effective costal ventilation [9, 11]. ...
