The Effect of Esomeprazole and Fundoplication on Airways

2014-08-27 03:18:41 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Evaluate the prevalence of bronchial responsiveness (BHR) among patients with gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD).

Investigate correlation between bronchial reactivity and the severity of GERD, and similarly investigate the correlation between exhaled nitric oxide (NO) and the severity of GERD.

Compare the effects of esomeprazole 40 mg twice daily and Nissen fundoplication on bronchial reactivity, exhaled NO, pulmonary function and quality of life.

- The inflammatory process that leads to the development of asthma may be present before the onset of asthma symptoms and cause a certain degree of airway hyperresponsiveness. W...

C-Reactive Protein as a Predictor for Airway Hyper-Responsiveness

Background: Increased serum high sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP) has been associated with airway inflammation in asthma and may serve as a surrogate marker for the presence of airw...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A form of bronchial disorder with three distinct components: airway hyper-responsiveness (RESPIRATORY HYPERSENSITIVITY), airway INFLAMMATION, and intermittent AIRWAY OBSTRUCTION. It is characterized by spasmodic contraction of airway smooth muscle, WHEEZING, and dyspnea (DYSPNEA, PAROXYSMAL).

The S-isomer of omeprazole.

The structural changes in the number, mass, size and/or composition of the airway tissues.

Evaluation, planning, and use of a range of procedures and airway devices for the maintenance or restoration of a patient's ventilation.

A type of oropharyngeal airway that provides an alternative to endotracheal intubation and standard mask anesthesia in certain patients. It is introduced into the hypopharynx to form a seal around the larynx thus permitting spontaneous or positive pressure ventilation without penetration of the larynx or esophagus. It is used in place of a facemask in routine anesthesia. The advantages over standard mask anesthesia are better airway control, minimal anesthetic gas leakage, a secure airway during patient transport to the recovery area, and minimal postoperative problems.
