Portable Oxygen Concentrator Improvements to Physical Activity, Oxygen Usage, and Quality of Life in Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease Patients Using Long-term Oxygen Therapy (POC-STEP)

To evaluate changes in activity based on the use of portable oxygen concentrators combined with standard of care (SOC) long- term oxygen therapy versus SOC long-term oxygen therapy alone a...

Intelligent Oxygen Therapy During Sleep

Long-term oxygen therapy improves survival in patients with severe hypoxia. However, some patients despite this oxygen, experience episodes of low oxygen levels (intermittent hypoxia) espe...

Validation of a Miniature SpO2 Sensor in Healthy Subjects and Patients With Long-term Oxygen Therapy.

By integrating a miniaturized pulse oximetry sensor into the frame of oxygen delivery glasses which dissimulates the nasal cannula we hope to optimize and long term oxygen therapy (LTOT) r...

Long-Term Oxygen Treatment (LTOT) in Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease: Factors Influencing Survival

The purpose of this prospective cohort study is to determine factors involved in survival in new COPD patients treated by long-term oxygen therapy. Background: long-term oxygen therapy is...

Nocturnal Oxygen Therapy

Successful Reperfusion with Endovascular Therapy Has Beneficial Effects on Long-Term Outcome Beyond 90 Days.

Recent studies have demonstrated that endovascular reperfusion therapy improves clinical outcomes at 90 days after ischemic stroke. However, the effects on long-term outcomes are not well known. We hy...

Long-Term Effectiveness of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy in Routine Outpatient Care: A 5- to 20-Year Follow-Up Study.

Long-term follow-ups several years after receiving cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) are scarce and most of the existing literature describes follow-up data of randomized-controlled trials. Thus, ver...

Intensive speech therapy in Ugandan patients with cleft (lip and) palate: a pilot-study assessing long-term effectiveness.

In resource-limited countries, traditional models for speech therapy delivery are not adequate to reach all patients in need. In those countries, intensive speech therapy might be a solution. Prelimin...

Non-invasive ventilation versus oxygen therapy in cystic fibrosis: A 12-month randomized trial.

No published studies have examined the long-term effects of non-invasive ventilation (NIV) in cystic fibrosis (CF). Our primary aim was to determine if adults with CF and sleep desaturation were less ...

Massively distended, necrotic and hemorrhagic gallbladder in a long-term octreotide-treated patient with added everolimus.

Long-term treatment with somatostatin analogs, such as octreotide, is well known to promote gallstones formation. Immunosuppressive therapy in renal transplantation is also associated with increased o...

A persistent increase in synaptic efficacy, usually induced by appropriate activation of the same synapses. The phenomenological properties of long-term potentiation suggest that it may be a cellular mechanism of learning and memory.

A nutritional condition produced by a deficiency of FOLIC ACID in the diet. Many plant and animal tissues contain folic acid, abundant in green leafy vegetables, yeast, liver, and mushrooms but destroyed by long-term cooking. Alcohol interferes with its intermediate metabolism and absorption. Folic acid deficiency may develop in long-term anticonvulsant therapy or with use of oral contraceptives. This deficiency causes anemia, macrocytic anemia, and megaloblastic anemia. It is indistinguishable from vitamin B 12 deficiency in peripheral blood and bone marrow findings, but the neurologic lesions seen in B 12 deficiency do not occur. (Merck Manual, 16th ed)
