Assessment of the Factors Affecting the Failure to Use Inhaler Devices Before and After Training
Inhaler devices used for the treatment of chronic respiratory diseases are frequently incorrectly used by the patients. The effects of training on the correct use of these devices are unquestionable. However, despite the training provided on the correct technique of using the inhaler device, some patients still continue using the device incorrectly. The aims of the present study are to determine the rate of incorrect use of the inhaler devices, assess the parameters that affect the incorrect use, demonstrate the contribution of training, and determine the characteristics of the patients who use the devices incorrectly desp...

Penguin lungs and air sacs: implications for baroprotection, oxygen stores and buoyancy [RESEARCH ARTICLE]
P. J. Ponganis, J. St Leger, and M. Scadeng The anatomy and volume of the penguin respiratory system contribute significantly to pulmonary baroprotection, the body O2 store, buoyancy and hence the overall diving physiology of penguins. Therefore, three-dimensional reconstructions from computerized tomographic (CT) scans of live penguins were utilized to measure lung volumes, air sac volumes, tracheobronchial volumes and total body volumes at different inflation pressures in three species with different dive capacities [Adélie (Pygoscelis adeliae), king (Aptenodytes patagonicus) and emperor (A. forsteri) penguins].

The epidemiology of sepsis during rapid response team reviews in a teaching hospital
In a three-month retrospective study, we assessed the proportion of rapid response team (RRT) calls associated with systemic inflammatory response syndrome (SIRS) and sepsis. We also documented the site of infection (whether it was community- or hospital-acquired), antibiotic modifications after the call and in-hospital outcomes. Amongst 358 RRT calls, two or more SIRS criteria were present in 277 (77.4%). Amongst the 277 RRT calls with SIRS criteria, 159 (57.4%) fulfilled sepsis criteria in the 24 hours before and 12 hours after the call. There were 118 of 277 (42.6%) calls with SIRS criteria but no evidence of sepsis and...

IgE Sensitization to Lupine in Bakers - Cross-Reactivity or Co-Sensitization to Wheat Flour
Conclusion: One third of 116 symptomatic bakers showed sIgE to lupine. At least some of these sensitizations were based on cross-reactivity between lupine and wheat flour. However, the considerable sensitization rate could also be a sign that the use of lupine flour in bakeries may be of occupational relevance.Int Arch Allergy Immunol 2015;166:63-70 (Source: International Archives of Allergy and Immunology)

Sex differences in children with severe health conditions: Causes of admission and mortality in a Pediatric Intensive Care Unit
ConclusionsAlthough more boys were admitted to the PICU, a significantly higher number of girls died. Younger age and higher occurrence of nosocomial infection among girls could explain this finding. More frequent polytraumatic injuries in boys could reflect an increased exposure to risky activities and/or more careless behavior. Am. J. Hum. Biol., 2015. © 2015 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.

Community Views About the Health and Exposure of Children Living Near a Coal Ash Storage Site
Abstract Coal ash, a waste product generated from burning coal, is composed of small particles comprised of highly toxic elements. Coal ash particles contain heavy metals such as arsenic, lead, and mercury, as well as polyaromatic hydrocarbons and radioactive elements. Most coal ash is stored in landfills and ponds, often located in close proximity to low income communities. Currently, there are no federal regulations governing the storage and transport of coal ash; however the Environmental Protection Agency proposed a coal ash rule in 2010, which could designate coal ash as a hazardous waste. This is the first ...

How to choose the duration of antibiotic therapy in patients with pneumonia
Purpose of review: The appropriate duration of antimicrobial treatment in patients with pneumonia remains a matter of controversy. The purpose of this article is to review different approaches that have been used to determine the duration of antimicrobial therapy mainly driven either by the antibiotic chosen, isolated pathogen, host characteristics, or severity of the disease. Recent findings: When considered individually, every approach has strengths and weaknesses. Targeting the duration of antibiotic therapy based on a single biomarker, such as procalcitonin, is a promising approach that showed a reduction in antibiotic...

Cytologic Findings of Hematologic Malignancies in Bronchoalveolar Lavage Fluid
Conclusion BAL is especially important in distinguishing inflammatory/infectious processes from neoplastic disorders since many patients with hematologic malignancies can have pneumonia-like symptoms as part of their initial disease presentation. Causative pathogens are identified in only a minority of malignant BAL specimens from these patients. Lung involvement in patients with hematologic malignancies carries a poor prognosis.

Long-Term Effects of a 12-Week Exercise Training Program on Clinical Outcomes in Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis
Conclusions At 11-month follow-up, the 12-week ET program showed clinical outcomes were preserved at baseline levels with some maintenance of improvements in leg strength and QOL in the ET group. The control group showed a trend of deterioration in the outcomes. At 30 months, the 12-week ET program did not show benefits in prognosis although the study was underpowered to detect such differences. We suggest including ET as a long-term continued treatment and as a core component of pulmonary rehabilitation programs for IPF patients. (Source: Lung)

Poor asthma education and medication compliance are associated with increased emergency department visits by asthmatic children
CONCLUSION: This study reports that most patients had poor knowledge about asthma and were using medications improperly, thus suggesting inefficient application of management action plan. Unnecessary and frequent visits to the ED for asthma care was associated with poor education about asthma and medication use. Potential deficiencies of the health system at directing patients to the proper medical facility were uncovered and underline the necessity to improve education about the disease and medication compliance of patients and their parents/guardians.
