The purpose of this cross-sectional, observational study is to evaluate the site and mechanism(s) for expiratory airflow limitation in chronic, treated, current or former smokers (>15 pack...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the use of spirometry in identifying Diagnostic Error in COPD and Asthma patients.
The purpose of this study is to investigate the pharmacodynamics of single doses of abediterol given by 2 different devices in participants with asthma. Abediterol (AZD0548) is a potential...
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and asthma are common respiratory diseases in which people experience long-term inflammation of the lungs. Exacerbations, or prolonged worsenin...
To investigate the distributions of the patients with ACOS, asthma and COPD over age 40 with chronic airflow limitation in China.
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,...
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 ...
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...
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 ...
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...
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.
