[Analysis of causes of death in patients hospitalized in the department of pneumonology].
We retrospectively analyzed data of 188 patients who had died in our Department in 2010. The three leading causes of death in our patients were: respiratory diseases (pneumonia, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease), neoplasmas and cardiovascular diseases (cardiac failure)--35.1, 33...
Potency factors for risk assessment at Libby, Montana.
We reanalyzed the Libby vermiculite miners' cohort assembled by Sullivan to estimate potency factors for lung cancer, mesothelioma, nonmalignant respiratory disease (NMRD), and all-cause mortality associated with exposure to Libby fibers. Our principal statistical tool for analyses of lung cancer, N...
Internal validation of a telemedical system for monitoring patients with chronic respiratory diseases.
International Conference of the IEEE Engineerin... 2010:2172 (2010) PMID 21096156One of the most promising and innovative developments in medicine are telemedical systems. The system PulmoTel 2010 and its internal validation are presented, focusing on the system architecture, hardware, software and communication solutions. PulmoTel 2010 consists of a distant serv...
Assessment of serum N-terminal pro-B-type natriuretic peptide concentration for differentiation of congestive heart failure from primary res...
Serum NT-proBNP concentration was significantly higher in dogs with cardiac versus noncardiac causes of respiratory signs. In dogs with primary respiratory tract disease, serum NT-proBNP concentration was significantly higher in those with concurrent pulmonary hypertension than in those without. A s...
Respiratory disorders and hospitalization rates during the second RSV season in preterm infants who received palivizumab prophylaxis during ...
This prospective study evaluated the frequency and severity of respiratory symptoms during the second respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) season in an italian cohort of preterm infants (< or = 35 weeks) who had received palivizumab prophylaxis in their first year of life (October 2004-April 2005) and...
The discovery of the mechanism of RNA interference by ds RNA by Prof. Andrew Fire and Prof. Craig Mello in 1998, gave them the Nobel Prize in 2006. This discovery revealed a new mechanism for gene regulation through "gene silencing" at the transcriptional level (TGS) or at the post-transcriptional l...
Postoperative respiratory problems in morbidly obese patients.
We present postoperative measures improving respiratory function of these patients. Whether these measures affect outcome remains however unknown. Patients suffering from obstructive sleep apnoea syndrome deserve special considerations that are briefly described. Finally, the algorithm of the postop...
Wavelet analysis of voluntary cough sound in patients with respiratory diseases.
We analyzed voluntary cough sound properties in subjects with asthma bronchiale (AB) and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and discriminated them from the control cough sound in healthy subjects. The wavelet transform was used due to a nonstationarity of cough sound recordings. The durati...
Molar-incisor-hypomineralisation (MIH). A retrospective clinical study in Greek children. II. Possible medical aetiological factors.
Volcanic sulfur dioxide and acute respiratory symptoms on Miyakejima island.
Hourly incidence of cough, scratchy throat, sore throat and breathlessness showed clear exposure-response relationships with SO2 concentrations. There were statistically significant risks of those symptoms at relatively low SO2 levels. Thus, rate ratios in the 0.6-2.0 ppm exposure band (vs <0.01 ppm...
