The purpose of this study is to find out whether a new device can help obtain more accurate CT and PET scans of the lungs and chest tumors and the liver and liver tumors to help in deliver...
Prolong mechanical ventilation cause to respiratory muscle weakness and high risk to weaning failure,the investigators hypothesize that 1. Specific inspiratory muscle training (SIMT) us...
This randomized, cross-over study aims at describing the effect of pursed lip breathing on exercise-induced dyspnea and exercise capacity in patients with interstitial lung disease.
Rationale: Hypertension is an important risk factor of cardiovascular disease, especially in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). A relatively recent development for the treatmen...
Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), also known as "Lou Gehrig's Disease", is a fatal disorder that causes breathing failure due to progressive weakness of the muscles of breathing. Breath...
Impaired lung function is regarded as a risk factor for stroke in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. However, the association between reduced lung function and incident stroke in a c...
The effects of lung afferents denervation on cardiovascular regulation can be assessed on bilateral lung transplantation patients. The high-frequency component of heart rate variability is known to be...
Regulatory neuropeptides control and regulate breathing in physiological and pathophysiological conditions. While they have been identified in the neurons of major respiratory areas, they can be activ...
Hypertension and reduced lung function are important features of aging. Slow loaded breathing training reduces resting blood pressure and the question is whether this can also improve lung function.
Mycobacterial lung disease is caused by nontuberculous mycobacteria (NTM), also known as atypical mycobacteria. NTM are widely distributed in the environment, particularly in soil and water; they may ...
RESPIRATORY MUSCLE contraction during INHALATION. The work is accomplished in three phases: LUNG COMPLIANCE work, that required to expand the LUNGS against its elastic forces; tissue resistance work, that required to overcome the viscosity of the lung and chest wall structures; and AIRWAY RESISTANCE work, that required to overcome airway resistance during the movement of air into the lungs. Work of breathing does not refer to expiration, which is entirely a passive process caused by elastic recoil of the lung and chest cage. (Guyton, Textbook of Medical Physiology, 8th ed, p406)
A diffuse parenchymal lung disease caused by accumulation of inhaled CARBON or coal dust. The disease can progress from asymptomatic anthracosis to massive lung fibrosis. This lung lesion usually occurs in coal miners, but can be seen in urban dwellers and tobacco smokers.
Mechanical ventilation delivered to match the patient's efforts in breathing as detected by the interactive ventilation device.
Removal of a MEDICAL DEVICE from the market due to the identification of an intrinsic property of the device that results in a serious risk to public health.
The physical or mechanical action of the LUNGS; DIAPHRAGM; RIBS; and CHEST WALL during respiration. It includes airflow, lung volume, neural and reflex controls, mechanoreceptors, breathing patterns, etc.
Of all the types of Dementia, Alzheimer's disease is the most common, affecting around 465,000 people in the UK. Neurons in the brain die, becuase 'plaques' and 'tangles' (mis-folded proteins) form in the brain. People with Al...
