Floor Aleva, MD, and colleagues recently completed a systematic review and meta-analysis on prevalence and localization of pulmonary embolus in patients with acute exacerbations
Bronchial asthma is an ever increasing epidemic and it has been found that morbidity of asthma patients is increased by its exacerbations
so early treatment of these patients is helpful in prevention of its exacerbations
Overall, COPD patients with blood eosinophil counts of >150 cells/L at study entry or >300 cells/L within the past year treated with add-on 100mg mepolizumab showed a consistent 1820% reduction in the primary endpoint of annual rate of moderate and severe exacerbations
In an analysis of children with asthma, those who had been breastfed had a 45% lower risk of asthma exacerbations
later in life compared with children who had not been breastfed.
The disease is intermingled with times of exacerbations
that have necessary results for patients and health care providers.
The rationale for this change is that LABA/LAMAs give greater bronchodilation compared with LABA/ICS, and one study showed a decreased rate of exacerbations
compared to LABA/ICS in patients with a history of exacerbations
The purpose of this study is to assess exacerbation
of COPD in multiple severity groups as per GOLD 2013 criteria and to find out which of the three multidimensional assessment systems BODE, DOSE or ADO index is better in predicting exacerbations
Some experts have suggested that the observational studies reporting a link between acetaminophen and asthma exacerbations
may have been flawed by "confounding by indication," because children with asthma have more symptomatic respiratory infections than do those without asthma and use more acetaminophen for fever and malaise.
1]% predicted was significantly greater at baseline in those without exacerbations
Mucolytic agents have an important role in managing COPD exacerbations
because increased mucus secretions causes coughing and the mucus plugs can obstruct airways and lead to increased death.
The objectives of the present study were to evaluate the prevalence of biochemical exacerbation
in renal transplant patients chronically infected with HBV and to evaluate the factors related to its occurrence.
The severity of the exacerbations
was based on the Global Initiative for Chronic Obstructive Lung Disease criteria.
