Clinical Approach to the Therapy of Asthma-COPD Overlap.

Over the past few years there has been a renewed interest in patients with characteristics of both asthma and COPD. Although the precise definition of asthma-COPD overlap (ACO) is still controversial,...

Differences in airway structural changes assessed by three-dimensional computed tomography in asthma and asthma-COPD overlap.

Asthma- COPD overlap (ACO) is a clinical phenotype sharing features of asthma and COPD. Multidetector row computed tomography (MDCT) can be used to evaluate the airway structure; however, differences ...

Characteristics of asthma and COPD overlap syndrome (ACOS) in the Canadian population.

Asthma is a chronic disease affecting both children and adults, whereas chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a respiratory disease most commonly related to smoking and is usually seen in ad...

Fall episodes in elderly patients with asthma and COPD - a pilot study.

Evidence of an increased risk of falls in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) exists; however, this has not been studied in elderly asthmatic patients. The aim of the study was ...

Asthma and COPD Overlap in Women: Incidence and Risk Factors.

Women with asthma are at a high risk of developing COPD, or asthma and COPD overlap syndrome (ACOS) as they age, which is a condition associated with a high mortality rate, low quality of life, and hi...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Asthma attacks caused, triggered, or exacerbated by OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE.

A disease of chronic diffuse irreversible airflow obstruction. Subcategories of COPD include CHRONIC BRONCHITIS and PULMONARY EMPHYSEMA.

Asthma attacks following a period of exercise. Usually the induced attack is short-lived and regresses spontaneously. The magnitude of postexertional airway obstruction is strongly influenced by the environment in which exercise is performed (i.e. inhalation of cold air during physical exertion markedly augments the severity of the airway obstruction; conversely, warm humid air blunts or abolishes it).

Drugs that are used to treat asthma.

A beta-adrenergic agonist used in the treatment of asthma and bronchospasms.
