Hospital Without Dyspnea. Rationale and Design of a Multidisciplinary Intervention

Dyspnea is a symptom that is growing in incidence, as respiratory and heart diseases are becoming more frequent. Patients suffering from dyspnea have a significant disabling due to chronic...

Handheld Mirror to Improve Child's Behavior During Dental Treatment

The purpose of this study is to determine whether a handheld mirror helps to reduce child behavior problems during dental treatment. It will be tested by randomized crossover design. Child...

Biomarkers in Dyspnea

To explore biological mechanisms in human model of induced dyspnea, in order to remove the source of dyspnoea, to modify cerebral impact and to allow the development of targeted therapies.

Acute Dyspnea After Use of Non-invasive Ventilation in COPD and Emphysema (Deventilation Syndrome)

Acute dyspnea after use of non-invasive ventilation (NIV) is a common phenomenon in patients with COPD and emphysema. This trial aims to document incidence and severity of augmented dyspne...

Assessment of Novel Handheld Fundus Camera

Assessment of handheld fundus images in comparison to conventional fundus camera images.

Impact of vocal fold augmentation and laryngoplasty on dyspnea in patients with glottal incompetence.

Given that the vocal folds are active organs of respiration, reports of dyspnea in the context of glottic insufficiency are not uncommon. We hypothesize that improved glottal closure via framework sur...

Does Patient-reported Dyspnea Reflect Thoracic Disease Characteristics in Patients with Incurable Cancer?

A considerable proportion of patients with incurable cancer experience dyspnea. This study evaluates associations between the feeling of dyspnea, as quantified by radiotherapy patients scoring their s...

A Comparison of Pain, Fatigue, Dyspnea and their Impact on Quality of Life in Pulmonary Rehabilitation Participants with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease.

In addition to dyspnea and fatigue, pain is a prevalent symptom in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Understanding the relative prevalence, magnitude, and interference with aspects of dail...

Effects of inspiratory muscle training in COPD patients: A systematic review and meta-analysis.

In chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), quality of life and exercise capacity are altered in relationship to dyspnea. Benefits of inspiratory muscle training (IMT) on quality of life, dyspnea...

Dyspnea.

Dyspnea is a subjective experience of breathing discomfort that can only be known through a patient's report. Numeric rating or visual analog scales allow assessment of intensity when the patient can ...

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).

MICROCOMPUTERS, sometimes called PDA, that are very small and portable, fitting in a hand, and that have much more function than a calculator. They are convenient to use in clinical and other field situations for quick data management. They usually require docking with MICROCOMPUTERS for updates.

The anterior portion of the head that includes the skin, muscles, and structures of the forehead, eyes, nose, mouth, cheeks, and jaw.

Enzymes that catalyze DNA template-directed extension of the 3'-end of an RNA strand one nucleotide at a time. They can initiate a chain de novo. In eukaryotes, three forms of the enzyme have been distinguished on the basis of sensitivity to alpha-amanitin, and the type of RNA synthesized. (From Enzyme Nomenclature, 1992).

An isothermal in-vitro nucleotide amplification process. The process involves the concomitant action of a RNA-DIRECTED DNA POLYMERASE, a ribonuclease (RIBONUCLEASES), and DNA-DIRECTED RNA POLYMERASES to synthesize large quantities of sequence-specific RNA and DNA molecules.
