  • severity
  • The relationship between neovascularisation and disease severity (in terms of histological severity of disease and pulmonary function) has been studied previously [ 9 , 11 ]. (ersjournals.com)
  • In addition, we examined the relationship between neovascularisation and disease severity (in terms of histological tissue type, pulmonary function and PH) in the explanted lung tissue of patients with advanced IPF. (ersjournals.com)
  • Researchers from Japan described ways to predict the progression and severity of pulmonary hypertension (PH) in people with left heart disease. (pulmonaryhypertensionnews.com)
  • vascular disease
  • In 1998, Dr. Yuan obtained an Established Investigator Award from the American Heart Association for his pioneer work in identifying novel therapeutic approaches for pulmonary vascular disease. (wikipedia.org)
  • He was recognized as one of the highly promising young investigators in the translational research field of pulmonary vascular disease and right heart failure. (wikipedia.org)
  • He was also Vice Chair for Scholarly Activities of the Department of Medicine at the College of Medicine and Director of the Program in Pulmonary Vascular Disease and Right Heart Dysfunction at the Center for Cardiovascular Research in the University of Illinois at Chicago. (wikipedia.org)
  • His pulmonary vascular disease research propels the field on pathogenic roles of membrane receptors and ion channels and provides a new research direction for developing therapeutic approaches for the disease. (wikipedia.org)
  • respiratory
  • In addition, treat respiratory illnesses aggressively in order to minimize or prevent increases in pulmonary bed reactivity from ventilation-perfusion mismatching and/or hypoxia. (medscape.com)
  • Dr. Yuan has served on many advisory committees and editorial boards, including Chair of the Respiratory Integrative Biology and Translational Research study section of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), and Chair of the Pulmonary Circulation Assembly of the American Thoracic Society. (wikipedia.org)
  • Critical Care Med
  • While at the University of California, San Diego, he was the Vice Chair for Research of the Department of Medicine (2007-2010) and Associate Director for Research Training in the Division of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine (2003-2010). (wikipedia.org)
  • edema
  • High-altitude pulmonary edema (HAPE) (HAPO spelled oedema in British English) is a life-threatening form of non-cardiogenic pulmonary edema (fluid accumulation in the lungs) that occurs in otherwise healthy mountaineers at altitudes typically above 2,500 meters (8,200 ft). (wikipedia.org)
  • Pulmonary edema Altitude sickness High-altitude cerebral edema (HACE) High-altitude flatus expulsion (HAFE) Pulse oximeter, the instrument to measure oxygen level in blood. (wikipedia.org)
  • cause
  • Fenfluramine was marketed by American Home Products (later known as Wyeth) as Pondimin, but was shown to cause potentially fatal pulmonary hypertension and heart valve problems, which eventually led to its withdrawal and legal damages of over $13 billion. (wikipedia.org)
  • DPB is idiopathic, which means an exact physiological, environmental, or pathogenic cause of the disease is unknown. (wikipedia.org)
  • lungs
  • Lung transplantation or pulmonary transplantation is a surgical procedure in which a patient's diseased lungs are partially or totally replaced by lungs which come from a donor. (wikipedia.org)
  • The first successful transplant surgery involving the lungs was a heart-lung transplant, performed by Dr. Bruce Reitz of Stanford University in 1981 on a woman who had idiopathic pulmonary hypertension. (wikipedia.org)
  • pathogenesis
  • NO also reduces pulmonary smooth muscle cell growth and antagonises platelet inhibition, factors which play a key role in the pathogenesis of PAH. (wikipedia.org)
  • function
  • We recorded results of arterial blood gases (ABG), pulmonary function (PFT) and 6-min walk tests (6MWT). (ahajournals.org)
  • Clubbing of the digits, a disfigurement of the finger tips or toes (see image) Abnormal pulmonary function test results, with evidence of restriction and impaired gas exchange. (wikipedia.org)
