Effect of prehabilitation on ventilatory efficiency in non-small cell lung cancer patients: A cohort study.

J Thorac Cardiovasc Surg 2019 Feb 19. Epub 2019 Feb 19.

Department of Respiratory and Exercise Physiology and CIC-CRB 1404, Rouen University Hospital, Rouen, France.

Objective: Cardiopulmonary exercise testing (CPET) for patients awaiting lung resection for non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) has developed considerably in recent years. Pulmonary rehabilitation before surgery (prehabilitation) improves postoperative risk factors such as forced expiratory volume in 1 second and peak oxygen consumption (VO). Ventilatory inefficiency assessed according to the linear regression of the ratio between the increase in minute ventilation and the expired carbon dioxide flow during CPET (VE/VCO slope) >35, is a high-risk factor for postoperative complications.

Extracellular Matrix Component Remodeling in Respiratory Diseases: What Has Been Found in Clinical and Experimental Studies?

Cells 2019 Apr 11;8(4). Epub 2019 Apr 11.

Department of Clinical Medicine, Laboratory of Experimental Therapeutics/LIM-20, School of Medicine of University of Sao Paulo, Sao Paulo 01246-903, Brazil.

Changes in extracellular matrix (ECM) components in the lungs are associated with the progression of respiratory diseases, such as asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). Experimental and clinical studies have revealed that structural changes in ECM components occur under chronic inflammatory conditions, and these changes are associated with impaired lung function. In bronchial asthma, elastic and collagen fiber remodeling, mostly in the airway walls, is associated with an increase in mucus secretion, leading to airway hyperreactivity. Read More

A Novel Pharyngeal Clearance Maneuver for Initial Tracheostomy Tube Cuff Deflation in High Cervical Tetraplegia.

Am J Phys Med Rehabil 2019 Apr 9. Epub 2019 Apr 9.

Rehabilitation Research Center at Santa Clara Valley Medical Center, San Jose, CA.

Mechanical insufflation-exsufflation (MIE), or "cough-assist" is a commonly used method of clearing tracheal and pulmonary secretions in patients with respiratory insufficiency secondary to spinal cord injury (SCI). This report presents a novel technique termed the Pharyngeal Clearance Maneuver (PCM) which utilizes a modified application of the MIE device to mobilize "secretion burden" at the portion of the trachea above the tracheostomy cuff during cuff deflation. Utilization of this strategy may reduce the risk of aspiration, infection, and respiratory compromise for patients with high cervical SCI in the acute rehabilitation setting. Read More

Subjective and Objective Outcomes in Patients With COPD After Pulmonary Rehabilitation - The Impact of Comorbidities.

Front Physiol 2019 22;10:286. Epub 2019 Mar 22.

Division of Pulmonology, Department of Clinical Therapeutics, School of Medicine, Alexandra Hospital, National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, Athens, Greece.

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a heterogeneous disease with multiple systemic manifestations and comorbidities, which contribute independently to its total morbidity and mortality. Pulmonary rehabilitation is an evidence-based intervention that is indicated for COPD patients who remain symptomatic, despite optimal pharmacological therapy. Although it is well documented in pure COPD, the role of pulmonary rehabilitation is uncertain in coexisting comorbidities. Read More

Early-life socioeconomic circumstances explain health differences in old age, but not their evolution over time.

J Epidemiol Community Health 2019 Apr 9. Epub 2019 Apr 9.

Swiss NCCR 'LIVES - Overcoming Vulnerability: Life Course Perspectives', University of Geneva, Geneva, Switzerland.

Background: Early-life socioeconomic circumstances (SEC) are associated with health in old age. However, epidemiological evidences on the influence of these early-life risk factors on trajectories of healthy ageing are inconsistent, preventing drawing solid conclusion about their potential influence. Here, to fill this knowledge gap, we used a statistical approach adapted to estimating change over time and an outcome-wide epidemiology approach to investigate whether early-life SEC were associated with the level of and rate of decline of physical, cognitive and emotional functioning over time.

Discharge to the skilled nursing facility: patient risk factors and perioperative outcomes after total knee arthroplasty.

Ann Transl Med 2019 Feb;7(4):65

Department of Orthopedic Surgery, Lenox Hill Hospital, New York City, NY, USA.

Background: Patients receiving a total knee arthroplasty (TKA) who fail to meet inpatient criteria for outpatient physical therapy or an acute rehabilitation facility are increasingly being discharged to skilled nursing facilities (SNFs). However, in some facilities, postoperative care and therapy may be suboptimal. In order to recognize the circumstances predisposing patients to a SNF discharge and quantify perioperative risks, we used a nationwide TKA database to compare those who were and were not discharged to SNFs with respect to: (I) patient and hospital characteristics; (II) comorbidities; (III) lengths of stay (LOS); and (IV) inpatient complications.

Measurement properties and performance of an eight-minute submaximal treadmill test in patients with juvenile idiopathic arthritis: a controlled study.

Pediatr Rheumatol Online J 2019 Apr 8;17(1):14. Epub 2019 Apr 8.

Department of Rheumatology, Oslo University Hospital, Rikshospitalet, Oslo, Norway.

Background: Poor cardiorespiratory fitness is previously reported in patients with juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) measured both by maximal and submaximal exercise tests, but a submaximal exercise test with acceptable measurement properties is currently lacking for both clinical and research purposes in this patient population. The objectives of this study were to evaluate the measurement properties and performance of a submaximal treadmill test in patients with JIA, and to compare the results with those obtained in controls.

Methods: Fifty-nine patients (50 girls), aged 10-16 years, with oligo- (n = 30) and polyarticular (n = 29) JIA, and 59 age- and sex-matched controls performed an eight-minute submaximal treadmill test for estimating peak oxygen uptake (VO) followed by a maximal treadmill test measuring VO directly.

The King's Brief Interstitial Lung Disease (KBILD) questionnaire: an updated minimal clinically important difference.

BMJ Open Respir Res 2019 18;6(1):e000363. Epub 2019 Feb 18.

Centre for Human and Applied Physiological Sciences, School of Basic and Medical Biosciences, Faculty of Life Sciences and Medicine, King's College London, London, UK.

Introduction: The King's Brief Interstitial Lung Disease (KBILD) is a 15-item validated health-related quality of life (HRQOL) questionnaire. The method of scoring the KBILD has recently changed to incorporate a logit-scale transformation from one that used raw item responses, as this is potentially a more linear scale. The aim of this study was to re-evaluate the KBILD minimal clinically important difference (MCID) using the new logit -transformed scoring. Read More
