The economic impact of asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) in Sweden in 1980 and 1991. (1/5638)

This study was carried out to estimate the direct and indirect costs associated with asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) in Sweden in 1980 and 1991, and to identify trends in the use of outpatient care, drugs and inpatient care, and the development of temporary morbidity, permanent disability and mortality for asthma and COPD. Routinely published administrative and population data were used to estimate the costs of asthma and COPD, and these figures were compared to corresponding estimates and trends for all respiratory diseases as well as for all diseases. Asthma and COPD each accounted for about SEK 3 billion, together roughly 2% of the economic cost of all diseases. Although the total costs associated with each disease were similar, the distribution of the different cost components and changes in each component over time differed. During the 1980s, the cost of drugs and out-patient care increased for both diseases. The cost of inpatient care for asthma decreased, whereas that for COPD increased. This study shows that asthma therapy has changed from inpatient to ambulatory care in Sweden, while the treatment of COPD to a higher degree still is based on inpatient care.  (+info)

Physiological and symptom determinants of exercise performance in patients with chronic airway obstruction. (2/5638)

To evaluate the physiological and symptom determinants of exercise performance (EP) as measured by a 6-min walking test (6MWD), Watt(max), and peak oxygen consumption (VO2 ml/min/kg), 105 patients with chronic airway obstruction (CAO) [50 chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD): 44 men, aged 63+/-7 years, forced expiratory volume in 1 sec (FEV1) forced vital capacity (FVC)(-1)% 54+/-13; and 55 asthmatic: 23 men, aged 55+/-10 years, FEV1 FVC(-1) % 65+/-10] underwent evaluation of 6MWD, symptom limited cyclo-ergometer exercise test, spirometry, respiratory muscle function, arterial blood gases and sensation of dyspnoea [using the Borg scale, Visual Analogue Scale (VAS) and Baseline Dyspnoea Index (BDI)]. A hierarchical method of analysis identified the residual volume (RV), total lung capacity (TLC)(-1) ratio, BDI and the patient's age as the strongest and most consistent correlates of EP (r2 = 0.14-0.21). The correlation between EP and its various determinants was not influenced by diagnosis. The relationship between breathlessness and EP was different between men and women: at any given level of exercise, women were more breathless than men. In multivariate analyses that contained both RV TLC(-1) and BDI, the RV TLC(-1) ratio was the strongest correlate of EP, although the BDI remained a significant covariate. Overall, age was the major determinant of EP but inclusion of the RV TLC(-1) ratio and the BDI into the model explained a further 9-15% of the variance in EP. These three covariates together explained 26-34% of the variance between patients. We conclude that in stable CAO patients, the prediction of exercise capacity by anthropometric, demographic, clinical and physiological variables is likely to be low. Age, pulmonary hyperinflation and dyspnoea are the strongest and most consistent correlates of impaired exercise performance. Airways obstruction, measured during expiration using FEV1, does not appear to be a predictor of physiological impairment. These results underline the importance of performing exercise evaluation in CAO patients.  (+info)

Impact of patient education and self-management on morbidity in asthmatics and patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. (3/5638)

The effect of patient education on morbidity in asthmatics and COPD patients has not previously been investigated in a single study. We randomized 78 asthmatics and 62 COPD patients after ordinary outpatient management. Intervention consisted of educational group sessions and individual sessions administered by a trained nurse and physiotherapist. A self-management plan was developed. The utilization of health resources and absenteeism from work was self-reported monthly. During the 12-month follow-up, approximately two (P= 0.001) and three (P= 0.001) times as many uneducated asthmatics and COPD patients, respectively, visited their general practitioner (GP) compared with educated. The mean reduction in GP consultations for the educated were 73% (P<0.001) and 85% (P<0.0001) for the asthma and COPD group, respectively, compared with uneducated. Fifty percent of uneducated asthmatics reported absenteeism from work compared with 24% of the educated (P = 0.06). The mean reduction in days offwork for the educated was 69% (P = 0.03), compared with uneducated. A positive correlation was observed between St George's Respiratory Questionnaire total score and number of GP visits for both the asthma and COPD group (P < 0.001). We conclude that patient education in asthmatics and COPD patients reduced the need for GP visits and kept a greater proportion of patients independent of their GP. Patient education among asthmatics also reduced the number of days off work and appeared to increase the proportion of patients not reporting absenteeism from work at all. Increasing number of GP visits was correlated with decreased health-related quality of life as measured by the SGRQ for both the asthmatics and the COPD patients.  (+info)

How accurate are pulse oximeters in patients with acute exacerbations of chronic obstructive airways disease? (4/5638)

The aim of this study was to determine the extent of correlation and agreement between arterial oxygen saturation and oxygen saturation as recorded by transcutaneous pulse oximetry, with a view to identifying whether pulse oximetry can be used as an alternative to arterial values in the clinical management of patients with acute exacerbations of chronic obstructive airways disease (COAD) in the emergency department. It also aims to determine whether there is a cut-off level of oxygen saturation by pulse oximetry that can screen for significant systemic hypoxia in this group. This prospective study of patients with acute exacerbations of COAD who were deemed by their treating doctor to require an arterial blood gas analysis to determine their ventilatory status, compared arterial oxygen saturation with simultaneously recorded oxygen saturation measured by transcutaneous pulse oximetry. Data were analysed using Pearson correlation, bias plot (Bland-Altman) methods for agreement and the receiver operator characteristic (ROC) curve method for determination of a screening cut-off. Sixty-four sample-pairs were analysed for this study. Nine (14%) had significant hypoxia (arterial PO2 less than 60 mmHg). The correlation coefficient was 0.91. The bias (Bland-Altman) plot shows a constant bias of -0.758% and only fair agreement, with 95% limits for agreement of -8.2 to + 6.7%. With respect to the ROC curve analysis, the 'best' cut-off for detection of hypoxia was at oxygen saturation by pulse oximetry of 92% (sensitivity 100%, specificity 86%). In conclusion, there is not sufficient agreement for oxygen saturation measured by pulse oximetry to replace analysis of an arterial blood gas sample in the clinical evaluation of oxygenation in emergency patients with COAD. However, oxygen saturation by pulse oximetry may be an effective screening test for systemic hypoxia, with the screening cut-off of 92% having sensitivity for the detection of systemic hypoxia of 100% with specificity of 86%.  (+info)

Has the perception of disability among COPD patients applying for pension changed during the last 20 years? (5/5638)

The aim is to examine the change in lung function, treatment and pulmonary symptoms in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) or chronic bronchitis (CB) applying for a pension during the period 1977-1996. In addition, we compared the perception of disability in males and females. From 1977 to 1996, 947 patients with COPD or CB were evaluated for obtaining economic support due to disability. In order to test the trend, the patients were divided into three periods: (1) 1977-1983, (2) 1984-1989 and (3) 1990-1996. Compared to females, males had substantial more pack-years of smoking (36 vs. 28, P<0.001), but their FEV1 was only slightly decreased (46.9% versus 49.6% predicted, P=0.047). Females reported significantly more often attacks of dyspnoea [OR: 1.5(1.00-2.2)] and any kind of dyspnoea during daytime [OR: 4.0(1.2-13.3)]. From period 1 to period 3, FEV1 increased significantly (45-53% predicted, P<0.001). Despite the increased FEV1, the use of inhaled corticosteroid had increased markedly (9-32% of the patients, P<0.001). The results did not change when patients with asthma were included. Our data suggest that both sexes, especially females, have become more aware of pulmonary symptoms and tend to react to them more actively by demanding evaluation and treatment.  (+info)

Diagostic value of respiratory impedance measurements in elderly subjects. (6/5638)

Obstructive lung disease (OLD) is highly prevalent in elderly subjects but markedly under-diagnosed. Indeed, only 40-50% of hospitalized elderly patients are able to adequately perform spirometric tests. This study aimed to evaluate, in an acute-care geriatric hospital, the diagnostic value of measuring airway impedance (Zrs) by the forced oscillation technique (FOT) for: (1) identifying OLD and (2) identifying responders vs. non-responders to bronchodilators. Sixty-seven patients (aged 82+/-8 years) underwent consecutive measurement of Zrs and forced expiratory volumes before and after bronchodilators. Zrs was measured by FOT at frequencies of 4-30 Hz. Correlations, ROC curves and logistic regression models were established to determine the sensitivity (Se) and specificity (Sp) of Zrs in identifying OLD. Significant correlations were found between spirometric and Zrs measurements. The Zrs parameters yielding the best Se and Sp for detecting OLD were: Fn (resonant frequency; Se: 76%; Sp: 78%) and R0 (resistance extrapolated for a frequency of 0: Se: 76%; Sp: 74%). Using the logistic regression models, 76% of the patients were correctly classified as having OLD or not. Zrs was however not contributive in identifying responders to bronchodilators. Zrs measurements by FOT are contributive to the diagnosis of OLD in elderly hospitalized patients.  (+info)

The Bronchitis Randomized On NAC Cost-Utility Study (BRONCUS): hypothesis and design. BRONCUS-trial Committee. (7/5638)

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is an irreversible disorder characterized by airflow obstruction and a progressive decline in forced expiratory volume in one second (FEV1). At present, no treatment except quitting smoking appears to affect the progression of the disease. Oxidative stress has been implicated in its pathogenesis. The Bronchitis Randomized on NAC Cost-Utility Study (BRONCUS) is a phase III, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, parallel group, multicentre study designed to assess the effectiveness of the antioxidant agent N-acetylcysteine (NAC) in altering the decline in FEV1, exacerbation rate, and quality of life in patients with moderate to severe COPD. In addition, cost-utility of the treatment will be estimated. Patients will be followed for 3 yrs and evaluated every 3 months. The necessary sample size to demonstrate an effect on the decline in FEV1 of 20 mL x yr(-1) was estimated to be 478 patients. Five hundred and twenty-three patients with moderate to severe COPD were recruited from 10 European countries from June 1, 1997-December 31, 1999. They were 63+/-8 yrs old and consisted of 243 (46%) current smokers and 280 (54%) exsmokers. Patients had on the average 4.9+/-1.6 exacerbations during the last 2 yrs. Postbronchodilator FEVI averaged 57+/-9% and the reversibility after 400 microg of Salbutamol averaged 4+/-4% predicted. The final results of the trial will be available in about 2 yrs. The study will provide objective data on the effects of N-acetylcysteine on outcome variables in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.  (+info)

Dose dependent increased mortality risk in COPD patients treated with oral glucocorticoids. (8/5638)

Systemic corticosteroids are often administered in COPD patients. The relationship between systemic glucocorticoids and mortality in patients with moderate to severe chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) was retrospectively analysed. Baseline characteristics of the patients, in stable clinical condition, were collected on admission to a pulmonary rehabilitation centre. Overall mortality was asessed at the end of follow-up. The Cox proportional hazards model was used to quantify the relationship between glucocorticoid use, distinguishing administration route (oral/inhalation) and oral dose, and overall mortality, adjusted for the influence of age, sex, smoking, lung function, resting arterial blood gases and body mass index. On multivariate analysis, oral glucocorticoid use at a (prednisone equivalent) dose of 10 mg x day(-1) without inhaled glucocorticoids, was associated with an increased risk (RR=2.34, 95% confidence interval (CI) 1.24-4.44) while 15 mg x day(-1) carried a relative risk of 4.03, CI = 1.99-8.15). A significant interaction was observed between inhaled and oral glucocorticoid use. Combined with inhaled glucocorticoids, the relative risk of oral glucocorticoid use appeared to be significantly smaller. It is concluded that in severe chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, maintenance treatment with oral glucocorticoids is associated with increased mortality in a dose-dependent manner. Since the present study design cannot exclude the possibility of bias by indication, further prospective studies are indicated using a broader patient characterization.  (+info)

Randomised trials comparing different drugs head-to-head are extremely valuable for clinical decision-making. However, it is scientifically and ethically sensible to demand strong evidence that a drug is effective by showing superiority over a placebo before embarking on head-to-head comparisons of potentially ineffective drugs. Our aim was to study the evolvement of evidence from placebo-controlled and head-to-head trials on the effects of antibiotics for the treatment of mild to moderate exacerbations of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. We conducted a historical systematic review. Through electronic databases and hand-searches, we identified placebo-controlled and head-to-head antibiotic trials for the treatment of mild to moderate chronic obstructive pulmonary disease exacerbations. We compared the numbers of patients recruited in placebo-controlled and head-to-head trials between 1957 and 2005. Using cumulative meta-analysis of placebo-controlled trials, we determined when, if ever, placebo

Background Patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) have few options for treatment. The effi cacy and safety of the phosphodiesterase-4 inhibitor rofl umilast have been investigated in studies of patients with moderate-to-severe COPD, but not in those concomitantly treated with longacting inhaled bronchodilators. The eff ect of rofl umilast on lung function in patients with COPD that is moderate to severe who are already being treated with salmeterol or tiotropium was investigated. Methods In two double-blind, multicentre studies done in an outpatient setting, after a 4-week run-in, patients older than 40 years with moderate-to-severe COPD were randomly assigned to oral rofl umilast 500 μg or placebo once a day for 24 weeks, in addition to salmeterol (M2-127 study) or tiotropium (M2-128 study). The primary endpoint was change in prebronchodilator forced expiratory volume in 1 s (FEV1). Analysis was by intention to treat. The studies are registered with ClinicalTrials.gov, ...
Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) represents one of the most challenging chronic diseases of the 21st century: it is expected to be the fourth leading cause of death by 2030. COPD is characterized by pulmonary and extra-pulmonary systemic manifestations caused by partly irreversible expiratory airflow obstruction. The cornerstone of COPD management is the prescription of single or combined inhalation therapy, such as short- and long-acting bronchodilators, inhaled corticosteroids to possibly prevent disease progression, preserve lung function, relieve respiratory symptoms and prevent or treat exacerbations. Given the complex and lifelong treatment, one can expect that adherence to the prescribed inhalation therapy is not self-evident. Adherence can be defined as the the extent to which a persons behaviour (taking medications, following a recommended diet and/or executing life-style changes) corresponds with the agreed recommendations of a health care provider. Inhaled medications ...
Introduction: Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is defined as a disease state characterized by airflow limitation that is not fully reversible. The Global Burden of Disease Study has projected that COPD, which ranked sixth as the cause of death in 1990, will become the third leading cause of death worldwide by 20202.The pooled global prevalence of COPD in adults 40 years or older is approximately 9 to 10% and is higher in smokers than non smokers, and is higher in men than in women. COPD includes emphysema, chronic bronchitis and small airway disease. Aims and Objectives: To study the clinical profile of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary disease patients. Evaluation of COPD patients with spirometry and 2D Echocardiography. To correlate between spirometry and 2D Echocardiography findings. Evaluation of left ventricular function in COPD patients by 2D Echocardiography. Material s and Methods: The proposed study is comprised of 100 patients of COPD admitted in Dr. V. M. Govt.

During the last 25 years, the use of non-invasive ventilation has grown substantially. Non-invasive ventilation refers to the delivery of positive pressure to the lungs without endotracheal intubation and plays a significant role in the treatment of patients with acute respiratory failure and in the domiciliary management of some chronic respiratory and sleep disorders. In the intensive and acute care setting, the primary aim of non-invasive ventilation is to avoid intubation, and it is mainly used in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease exacerbations, acute cardiogenic pulmonary oedema, immunocompromised or in the context of weaning, situations in which a reduction in mortality has been demonstrated. The principal techniques are continuous positive airway pressure, bilevel pressure support ventilation and more recently, high flow nasal cannula. Whereas non-invasive pressure support ventilation requires a ventilator, the other two techniques are simpler and can be easily used in non
Background. Patients hospitalized for heart failure (HF) are at high risk of readmission. Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is one of the most prevalent comorbidities in this population. However, few data and only small studies describe the impact of COPD on the risk of readmission.. Methods and results. Hospitalizations for HF were identified in the 2012 National Readmissions Database. We compared clinical characteristics and the risk of all-cause, cardiovascular (CV) and respiratory-related readmission for patients with and without COPD. We included 225,160 patients hospitalized for HF among whom 54,953 had comorbid COPD. Patients with COPD were younger (median age 76 years COPD versus 77 years without COPD; p , 0.001), had a higher burden of comorbidity and were more frequently male (53% versus 49%, p , 0.001). Thirty-day all-cause readmission risk was two-fold greater in patients with COPD compared to those without COPD (adjusted HR 2.02, 95%CI 1.97-2.08). Most readmissions were ...
BACKGROUND: The beneficial effects of pharmacotherapy for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) are well established. However, there are few data for treatment in the early stages of the disease. We examined the effect of tiotropium on outcomes in a large subgroup of patients with moderate COPD. METHODS: The Understanding Potential Long-Term Impacts on Function with Tiotropium (UPLIFT) study was a randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial undertaken in 487 centres in 37 countries. 5993 patients aged 40 years or more with COPD were randomly assigned to receive 4 years of treatment with either once daily tiotropium (18 mug; n=2987) or matching placebo (n=3006), delivered by an inhalation device. Randomisation was by computer-generated blocks of four, with stratification according to study site. In a prespecified subgroup analysis, we investigated the effects of tiotropium in patients with Global Initiative for Chronic Obstructive Lung Disease (GOLD) stage II disease. Primary ...

BACKGROUND: There continues to be a great need for better biomarkers and host-directed treatment targets for community-acquired pneumonia (CAP). Alterations in phospholipid metabolism may constitute a source of small molecule biomarkers for acute infections including CAP. Evidence from animal models of pulmonary infections and sepsis suggests that inhibiting acid sphingomyelinase (which releases ceramides from sphingomyelins) may reduce end-organ damage. METHODS: We measured concentrations of 105 phospholipids, 40 acylcarnitines, and 4 ceramides, as well as acid sphingomyelinase activity, in plasma from patients with CAP (n = 29, sampled on admission and 4 subsequent time points), chronic obstructive pulmonary disease exacerbation with infection (COPD, n = 13) as a clinically important disease control, and 33 age- and sex-matched controls. RESULTS: Phospholipid concentrations were greatly decreased in CAP and normalized along clinical improvement. Greatest changes were seen in ...

AU - Oh, Yeon. AU - Kwon, Namhee. AU - Jones, Paul. AU - Sajkov, Dimitar. PY - 2014/4. Y1 - 2014/4. N2 - We evaluated the predictive value of the COPD assessment test (CAT™) for exacerbation in the following six months or time to first exacerbation among COPD patients with previous exacerbations. COPD outpatients with a history of exacerbation from 19 hospitals completed the CAT questionnaire and spirometry over six months. Exacerbation events were prospectively collected using a structured questionnaire. The baseline CAT score categorised into four groups (0-9, 10-19, 20-29, and 30-40) showed strong prediction for time to first exacerbation and modest prediction for any exacerbation or moderate-severe exacerbation (AUC 0.83, 0.64, and 0.63 respectively). In multivariate analyses, the categorised CAT ...
COPD patients have challenges for effective use of inhalers due to advanced age, fixed airflow obstruction and comorbid medical conditions. Published clinical trials investigate drug efficacy but rarely consider the inhaler device. This trial investigates device efficacy, comparing clinical outcomes for the same medication via two different devices. Our intention was to communicate the results and to critically appraise the study protocol to inform planning of future device comparison research. Subjects with spirometry confirming at least moderate COPD were randomly assigned to inhaler sequence; starting with Accuhaler or metered dose inhaler and spacer (MDI/s). After baseline testing, subjects were assigned to fluticasone propionate/salmeterol xinafoate (SFC) 500/50 mcg twice daily via the first device for 6 weeks duration, then changed to the alternate device for the following 6 weeks. Subjects were reassessed in terms of health-related quality of life (HRQL), exercise endurance and lung function
The relationship between the COPD Assessment Test score and airflow limitation in Japan in patients aged over 40 years with a smoking history Daisuke Yoshimoto,1 Yasutaka Nakano,2 Katsuya Onishi,3 Gerry Hagan,4 Paul Jones5 1GlaxoSmithKline, Tokyo, 2Division of Respiratory Medicine, Department of Medicine, Shiga University of Medical Science, Otsu, 3Onishi Heart Clinic, Tsu, Japan; 4Independent consultant, Marbella, Spain; 5Division of Clinical Science, St George’s Hospital, University of London, London, UK Background: A large number of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) patients in Japan remain undiagnosed, primarily due to the underuse of spirometry. Two studies were conducted to see whether the COPD Assessment Test (CAT) in primary care has the potential to identify those patients who need spirometry for a diagnosis of COPD and to determine whether patients with cardiovascular disease had airflow limitation, which could be detected by CAT.

TY - JOUR. T1 - Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease; an overview. AU - Duncan, Deborah. PY - 2016/4/15. Y1 - 2016/4/15. N2 - As chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is one of the major causes of worldwide mortality, it is important to prevent, diagnose and manage it. COPD creates a huge burden on the NHS and has a significant impact on patients. This is a problem with the increase in morbidity and mortality rates. In primary care there is a lack of knowledge, under-use of quality-assured spirometry and under-diagnosis in about half of all cases. To be able to effectively diagnose, assess and manage COPD, health professionals must understand the physiology and aetiology of the disease. COPD is similar to asthma in its presentation and physiology but management of the condition can differ. The authors therefore looked at the similarities between the two conditions and what tests one can use to make a diagnosis of COPD.. AB - As chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is one of the ...
Diseases of the respiratory system, including chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), were the third leading cause of hospitalizations in Simcoe Muskoka in 2017. There were more than 1,500 COPD hospitalizations in 2017, accounting for more than one-third of all respiratory system disease related hospitalizations.. The age-standardized hospitalization rate for COPD in Simcoe Muskoka for all ages and sexes in 2017 was 217 (206.1, 228.1) hospitalizations per 100,000 population, which was significantly higher than the Ontario rate of 177 (174.9, 179.0) hospitalizations per 100,000 population. There was a small but significant decreasing trend in the COPD hospitalization rates in Simcoe Muskoka over the 15-year period from 2003 to 2017. The provincial rates for COPD hospitalizations did not change significantly over this same period of time. The COPD hospitalization rates in Simcoe Muskoka have been consistently above the provincial rates over this time period; however, the gap has narrowed in ...

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is one of the highest ranking diseases with regard to prevalence and mortality in Korea and also worldwide. In the past decade, effective inhaler medications for COPD treatment have been developed or approved. These inhaler medications have been proven to have beneficial effects on symptoms, lung function, quality of life, exercise capacity, and exacerbation. The inhalers used widely are long-acting anticholinergics, long-acting beta2-agonists, and combined inhalers of a corticosteroid and long-acting beta2-agonist. These inhaler medications are more effective than oral medications and less likely to produce adverse events. However, the inhaler medications should be used appropriately to achieve the desired effect. For COPD patients with a forced expiratory volume in 1 second (FEV1) less than 80% of the predicted value, a long-acting anticholinergic or long-acting beta2-agonist is usually the medication of first choice. If a COPD patient with a FEV1 ...

1. Some patients with the emphysematous type of tobacco-related chronic obstructive pulmonary disease are hypermetabolic. Since the likely mechanism is the increased work of breathing, other groups of patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease should be similar. We have now measured basal metabolic rate and diet-induced thermogenesis in six patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease with an arterial partial pressure of CO2 of ,5kPa (emphysematous), nine patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease with an arterial partial pressure of CO2 of ,6kPa (bronchitic), eight patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease due to chronic asthma and seven control subjects. Diet-induced thermogenesis was measured for 4h after a meal of 87% carbohydrate, 11% protein and 2% fat as energy, with a total energy content of 40% of basal metabolic rate.. 2. There was no difference between measured and predicted basal metabolic rate in the control (5541 ± 272 versus 5881 ± 245 kJ/24h) ...
AIM: This paper is a report of a study to describe the essential structure of the lived experience of living with severe chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) during the palliative phase of the disease. BACKGROUND: Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease is one of the most common diseases throughout the world. Shortness of breath, fatigue and cough are the most troublesome symptoms, and living with COPD often imposes limitations on daily living. The disease has a great impact on quality of life and affects the extent to which people can be active in daily life. METHODS: We conducted qualitative interviews of eight people with COPD and collected data over a 2-month period in 2003. Our patients were recruited from two pulmonary disease clinics in West Sweden. We used a phenomenological methodology to analyse the interviews. FINDINGS: Daily life for people with COPD is affected in several different ways. The patients described how their physical limitations forced them to refrain from ...

The benefits of exercise training for patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) are well-documented. In South Africa, exercise programmes for COPD patients are limited and often expensive and inaccessible to the broader community. The purpose of this study was to assess the responses of COPD patients to an exercise programme and to determine if the same results can be obtained through a less costly programme. In the primary programme of the study, 22 subjects were subjected to 12 weeks of exercise training. Each subject underwent comprehensive pre- and post-intervention assessments, which included the measurement of overall health status by a physician, level of dyspnoea, forced expiratory lung function, exercise capacity, body mass index and health-related quality of life. Exercise sessions included aerobic and strength training exercises and involved three, hour-long exercise sessions a week. In the modified programme, 18 subjects were randomly divided into an experimental and ...
A doença pulmonar obstrutiva crónica (DPOC) é uma das doenças inflamatórias mais comuns das vias aéreas e uma das principais causas de morbidade e mortalidade em todo o mundo. A doença é caracterizada por uma limitação persistente do fluxo aéreo, geralmente progressiva. As respostas inflamatórias crónicas e imunes desempenham papéis fundamentais no desenvolvimento e progressão da DPOC. A inflamação é uma resposta protetora normal, mas na DPOC esta inflamação é amplificada. Várias células inflamatórias, seus mediadores e enzimas participam na resposta inflamatória na DPOC. A reabilitação respiratória é um componente fundamental da gestão da doença pulmonar obstrutiva crónica. Ela é projetada para melhorar a condição física e psicológica de pessoas com doenças respiratórias crónicas e para promover a adesão a longo prazo do comportamento que melhora a saúde. O objetivo principal deste trabalho foi contribuir para a compreensão do papel das células iNKT ...

Y1 - 2015. N2 - Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a leading cause of morbidity and mortality and may frequently be complicated by sleep disorders. Insomnia and obstructive sleep apnea are commonly encountered in patients with COPD. Nocturnal hypoxemia is also prevalent in COPD may occur despite adequate awake oxygenation and can be especially severe in rapid eye movement sleep. Additionally, several factors-some of them unique to COPD-can contribute to sleep-related hypoventilation. Recognition of hypoventilation can be vital as supplemental oxygen therapy itself can acutely worsen hypoventilation and lead to disastrous consequences. Finally, accruing data establish an association between restless leg syndrome and COPD-an association that may be driven by hypoxemia and/or hypercapnia. ...
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), a.k.a. chronic obstructive lung disease (COLD), chronic obstructive airway disease (COAD), chronic airflow limitation (CAL) and chronic obstructive respiratory disease (CORD), is the occurrence of chronic bronchitis and emphysema together. This pair work together to narrow the airways of the lungs leading to breathing problems. The disease is under-diagnosed and under-treated. Smoking tobacco smoking is one of the major causes as is exposure to smoke from coal and wood used as domestic fuels.. In contrast to asthma, breathing problems in COPD are poorly reversible even with powerful bronchodilators and the condition worsens over time. BusinessWire reports that the market for COPD drugs will increase from approximately $8.3 billion in 2010 to more than $13.4 billion by 2020. A lateral part of the market is, of course, influenza vaccination. Most healthcare practitioners recommend that COPD patients receive an annual flu jab. Among the companies hoping ...

Title: Cytokines in the Pathogenesis of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease. VOLUME: 9 ISSUE: 1. Author(s):P. T. Reid and J.- M. Sallenave. Affiliation:Rayne Laboratory, Centre for Inflammation Research, Edinburgh University Medical School, Edinburgh, EH8 9AG, UK. Keywords:Cytokines, Pulmonary Disease, hypersecretion, gene therapy. Abstract: Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a common cause of morbidity and mortality. The term is heterogenous and encompasses a number of distinct but often overlapping phenotypes including chronic bronchitis, small airways obstruction, emphysema and in some individuals, a systemic component. Although there have been significant advances in understanding the pathophysiology of COPD, understanding of the role of the inflammation in the pathogenesis of the condition remains in its infancy. Indeed, cytokines that are known to orchestrate the inflammatory response in asthma and other inflammatory diseases are only beginning to be reported in COPD. In ...
There continues to be a great need for better biomarkers and host-directed treatment targets for community-acquired pneumonia (CAP). Alterations in phospholipid metabolism may constitute a source of small molecule biomarkers for acute infections including CAP. Evidence from animal models of pulmonary infections and sepsis suggests that inhibiting acid sphingomyelinase (which releases ceramides from sphingomyelins) may reduce end-organ damage. We measured concentrations of 105 phospholipids, 40 acylcarnitines, and 4 ceramides, as well as acid sphingomyelinase activity, in plasma from patients with CAP (n = 29, sampled on admission and 4 subsequent time points), chronic obstructive pulmonary disease exacerbation with infection (COPD, n = 13) as a clinically important disease control, and 33 age- and sex-matched controls. Phospholipid concentrations were greatly decreased in CAP and normalized along clinical improvement. Greatest changes were seen in phosphatidylcholines, followed by
Effects of administration of oral n-acetylcysteine on oxidative stress in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease patients in rural population
Immunophilin FKBP51 assists polypeptide folding, participates in glucocorticoid actions and may play a role in glucocorticoid resistance. FKBP51 is altered in patients with asthma, but its role in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) characterized by dysregulation of several pro/antiinflammatory genes is less clear. We assessed changes in nuclear/cytosolic FKBP51 protein using SDS-PAGE/WB and FKBP51 mRNA by qRT-PCR in cells isolated from induced sputum of stable COPD patients treated with formoterol/budesonide or formoterol/budesonide/theophylline for 4 wk. Expression of FKBP51 was higher in formoterol/budesonide/theophylline-treated patients, compared with formoterol/budesonide group in both cytosolic and nuclear fractions by about 57% and 31%, respectively (P | 0.001, P | 0.01). FKBP51 mRNA was only slightly, but not significantly, higher in patients on formoterol/budesonide/theophylline. Increased FKBP51 in COPD patients treated with formoterol/budesonide/theophylline may be important in

This chapter reviews the epidemiological evidence on the effects of dietary beta-carotene on lung function, respiratory symptoms, mortality and risk of developing chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Published studies are located by searching several electronic databases using the relevant key words. High levels of intake of beta-carotene were found to improve lung function (forced expiratory volume in one second and forced vital capacity) and appeared to have some protective effects against respiratory symptoms such as dyspnea, cough and excessive phlegm. However, no tentative conclusion on the association between dieta1y beta-carotene and both the risk and mortality of COPD can be drawn. In view of the emerging epidemiological evidence, further clinical and experimental research is required to ascertain the role of beta-carotene on the aetiology of COPD.. ...
Figure A : Normal lungs / Figure B: Lungs with COPD Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, known as COPD for short, is a progressive upper respiratory disease which diminishes the volume of air received in the lungs (NHLBI, 2017). There are several mechanisms which contribute to decreased lung volume, such as air sacks losing elasticity, the walls of the airway become inflamed, the walls of the air sacks become destroyed, and so forth (NHLBI, 2017). A wide arrange of treatments are available today, such as steroids, bronchodilators, and vaccines (NIH, 2017), although there is a shift to more natural treatments, fighting COPD through diet therapy. The causes of COPD are most commonly those related to long term smoking, but are not limited to the genetic factors and asthma as well. Approximately 75% of all documented cases of COPD are found in smokers, or former smokers (NHLBI, 2017). Today, there are less smokers than there were in the past, and the fastest method to improve from the symptoms of ...
The American Lung Association Links COPD to be the third leading cause of death in the US.. What is COPD… Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease is the progressing inflammation of lung disease that obstructs the air flow into the lungs - therefore making it hard to breathe. COPD is also in association with the development of asthma, chronic bronchitis, pneumonia, and Emphysema.. When you have less of air flow in the airways, there is a lack of elasticity, and therefore more mucus is created thus causing clogging. Chronic bronchitis is what happens when the walls of the bronchial tubes because they think and inflamed, CBD helps with the reduction of inflammation. As to where in Emphysema, the walls which lay between the air sacs can be destroyed, therefore reducing airflow as well.. Causes of COPD are; cigarette smoke, second-hand smoke, air pollution, and exposure to dust and smoke. You can see the effects doing the following activities; walking, cooking, etc. simple task becomes more ...
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a common and complex condition that affects millions of Americans. Primary care clinicians see these patients routinely and are familiar with the challenges of diagnosis, assessment, and effective management. Unfortunately, many patients with COPD remain undiagnosed and untreated and continue to suffer functional limitations and reduced quality of life. The disease is also heterogeneous, with multiple pathophysiologic mechanisms, risk factors, and clinical presentations. One contributor to COPD that is widely underrecognized is alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency (AATD). This enzyme deficiency is a genetic condition that increases risk for emphysema and other conditions, leading to accelerated decline in lung function and increased mortality.

Aerosolized bronchodilator drugs are commonly used for treatment of horses with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Relative efficacy of sympathomimetic and parasympatholytic bronchodilators for relief of acute airway obstruction and improvement of pulmonary gas exchange was compared in 6 horses with COPD. Physical examination, arterial and venous blood gas analysis and measurement of end-tidal CO₂ tension were performed at time zero, 30 minutes, 1, 2, 3 and 4 hours after administration of aerosol ipratropium (0.35 μg/kg), albuterol (1 μg/kg) or placebo via an equine Aeromask and metered dose inhaler. Physiologic shunt fraction (QS/QT), alveolar dead space fraction (VD/VT) and alveolar to arterial oxygen tension difference (p(A-a)O₂) were calculated using standard formulas. At time zero, horses demonstrated severe respiratory compromise and marked alterations in pulmonary gas exchange, indicative of alveolar hypoventilation, VA/Q mismatching and diffusion impairment. Ipratropium ...
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is currently the third leading cause of death and there is a huge unmet clinical need to identify disease biomarkers in peripheral blood. Compared to gene level differential expression approaches to identify gene signatures, network analyses provide a biologically intuitive approach which leverages the co-expression patterns in the transcriptome to identify modules of co-expressed genes. A weighted gene co-expression network analysis (WGCNA) was applied to peripheral blood transcriptome from 238 COPD subjects to discover co-expressed gene modules. We then determined the relationship between these modules and forced expiratory volume in 1 s (FEV1). In a second, independent cohort of 381 subjects, we determined the preservation of these modules and their relationship with FEV1. For those modules that were significantly related to FEV1, we determined the biological processes as well as the blood cell-specific gene expression that were over-represented using
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and lung cancer share the same etiologic factor, cigarette smoking. Higher consumption of dietary lycopene has been associated with lower risks of COPD and lung cancer in smokers. We investigated whether lycopene feeding protects against COPD and lung cancer in ferrets, a nonrodent model that closely mimics cigarette smoke (CS)-induced chronic bronchitis, emphysema, and lung tumorigenesis in human. We also explored whether the protective effect of lycopene is associated with restoring reverse cholesterol transport (RCT), a key driver in persistent inflammation with CS exposure. Ferrets (4 groups, n = 12-16/group) were exposed to a combination of tobacco carcinogen (NNK) and CS with or without consuming lycopene at low and high doses (equivalent to ∼30 and ∼90 mg lycopene/day in human, respectively) for 22 weeks. Results showed that dietary lycopene at a high dose significantly inhibited NNK/CS-induced chronic bronchitis, emphysema, and ...
BACKGROUND--Plasma levels of atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP) are elevated in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and may have a role in preventing oedema formation in these patients. METHODS--Plasma ANP levels were measured in 60 patients with COPD and these measurements were related to pulmonary haemodynamics, response to treatment during exacerbations, and clinical patterns of the stable disease. RESULTS--Plasma ANP levels did not correlate significantly with right atrial or pulmonary arterial pressures but did correlate significantly with both the right ventricular end diastolic volume and right ventricular wall volume measured by magnetic resonance imaging. Oxygen (2 1/min by nasal prongs for 30 minutes) did not change the mean pulmonary arterial pressure or the level of plasma ANP. In 20 patients with an acute exacerbation of COPD plasma ANP levels were higher in those with oedema (302 (185) pg/ml) than in those without oedema (87 (43) pg/ml). Oxygen given for one ...

Self-management strategies have the potential to support patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Telehealth interventions may have a role in delivering this support along with the opportunity to monitor symptoms and physiological variables. This paper reports findings from a six-month, clinical, cohort study of COPD patients use of a mobile telehealth based (mHealth) application and how individually determined alerts in oxygen saturation levels, pulse rate and symptoms scores related to patient self-initiated treatment for exacerbations. The development of the mHealth intervention involved a patient focus group and multidisciplinary team of researchers, engineers and clinicians. Individual data thresholds to set alerts were determined, and the relationship to exacerbations, defined by the initiation of stand-by medications, was measured. The sample comprised 18 patients (age range of 50-85 years) with varied levels of computer skills. Patients identified no difficulties in using the

Background Adenosine is generated in response to cellular stress and damage and is elevated in the lungs of patients with chronic lung disease. Adenosine signaling through its cell surface receptors serves as an amplifier of chronic lung disorders, suggesting adenosine-based therapeutics may be beneficial in the treatment of lung diseases such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF). Previous studies in mouse models of chronic lung disease demonstrate that the key components of adenosine metabolism and signaling are altered. Changes include an up-regulation of CD73, the major enzyme of adenosine production and down-regulation of adenosine deaminase (ADA), the major enzyme for adenosine metabolism. In addition, adenosine receptors are elevated. Methodology/Principal Findings The focus of this study was to utilize tissues from patients with COPD or IPF to examine whether changes in purinergic metabolism and signaling occur in human disease. Results

Precision medicine is a patient-specific approach that integrates all relevant clinical, genetic and biological information in order to optimise the therapeutic benefit relative to the possibility of side-effects for each individual. Recent clinical trials have shown that higher blood eosinophil counts are associated with a greater efficacy of inhaled corticosteroids (ICSs) in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) patients. Blood eosinophil counts are a biomarker with potential to be used in clinical practice, to help target ICS treatment with more precision in COPD patients with a history of exacerbations despite appropriate bronchodilator treatment.The Global Initiative for Chronic Obstructive Lung Disease (GOLD) 2017 pharmacological treatment algorithms, based on the ABCD assessment, can be applied relatively easily to treatment-naive individuals at initial presentation. However, their use is more problematic during follow-up in patients who are already on maintenance treatment. There is a

N2 - The hospital re-engineering movement has resulted in major changes in hospital staffing. These staffing changes have the potential to reduce staffing intensity and skill mix, both generally and within specific caregiver groups. Prior research has shown that both skill mix and staffing intensity are positively associated with outcomes indicative of the quality of hospital care. This study extends beyond prior research by expanding the scope of staffing intensity and skill mix measures beyond that of physicians and nursing personnel and by focusing on a specific diagnostic group, patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Multiple regression analysis was performed using the 30-day post-admission observed mortality rate for Medicare patients being treated for COPD relative to the predicted rate as ...
