  1. Characteristics and disease activity of early interstitial lung disease in subjects with true parenchymal abnormalities in the posterior sub...

    Chest 129(2):402 (2006) PMID 16478858

    In the true abnormalities group, curvilinear subpleural lines or thickened interlobular and intralobular lines were observed more frequently in the lower lung fields. Diffusing capacities of the lung for carbon monoxide (15.3 +/- 3.5 mL/min/mm Hg vs 18.8 +/- 3.7 mL/min/mm Hg, p = 0.0493) were lower,...
  2. Predictive respiratory complication quotient predicts pulmonary complications in thoracic surgical patients.

    Annals of Thoracic Surgery 66(1):220 (1998) PMID 9692468

    A construct such as the PRQ may provide a better prediction of outcome than its individual parts. We identified an important underlying relationship between intensive care unit stay, hospital stay and charges, and our index. A PRQ of less than 2,200 was associated with an increased risk of pulmonary...
  3. Role of reaction resistance in limiting carbon monoxide uptake in rabbit lungs.

    Journal of Applied Physiology 84(6):2066 (1998) PMID 9609802

  4. Stop-flow studies of distribution of filtration in rat lungs.

    Journal of Applied Physiology 84(1):47 (1998) PMID 9451616

  5. Lung membrane diffusing capacity, heart failure, and heart transplantation.

    The American Journal of Cardiology 83(1):62 (1999) PMID 10073787

    We measured DLCO, the membrane conductance, and Vc before and after heart transplantation. At the time of hemodynamic measurements, the Roughton and Forster method of measuring DLCO at varying alveolar oxygen concentrations was used to determine the membrane conductance, Vc, DLCO/alveolar volume (VA...
  6. Pulmonary effect of amiodarone in patients with heart failure. The Congestive Heart Failure-Survival Trial of Antiarrhythmic Therapy (CHF-ST...

    Journal of the American College of Cardiology 30(2):514 (1997) PMID 9247526

    Our study shows that amiodarone can be safely used, with an acceptable pulmonary toxicity, in patients with heart failure....
  7. Alveolar-capillary block in patients with AIDS and Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia.

    The American review of respiratory disease 137(2):443 (1988) PMID 3257662

    We measured DL, membrane diffusing capacity (DM), and pulmonary capillary blood volume (VC) in 20 control subjects, 20 patients with a low DL (less than 75% predicted) and newly diagnosed PCP, and 16 patients with a low DL in most of whom PCP had been suspected and excluded. Ten patients with PCP we...
  8. Aerobic power during maximal exercise in untrained and well-trained persons with quadriplegia and paraplegia.

    Scandinavian Journal of Rehabilitation Medicine 20(4):141 (1988) PMID 3232045

    We tested five well arm-trained and five arm-untrained able-bodied subjects. During maximal wheelchair exercise the aerobic power (VO2 peak), pulmonary ventilation and blood lactate concentration was higher in subjects with lower levels of spinal cord injury. At each injury level above C6-C7, nearly...
  9. Serial lung function and elastic recoil 2 years after lung volume reduction surgery for emphysema.

    Chest 113(6):1497 (1998) PMID 9631784

    We studied 12 (10 male) patients aged 68+/-9 years (mean+/-SD) 6 to 12 months prior to and at 6-month intervals for 2 years after thoracoscopic bilateral LVRS for emphysema. At 2 years post-LVRS, relief of dyspnea remained improved in 10 of 12 patients, and partial or full-time oxyge...
  10. Alterations in pulmonary function in cancer patients receiving adoptive immunotherapy with tumor-infiltrating lymphocytes and interleukin-2.

    The American review of respiratory disease 141(1):193 (1990) PMID 2297177

    We conclude that adoptive immunotherapy with TIL and IL-2 produces changes in systemic immune response that may contribute to abnormal pulmonary physiology....
