BACKGROUND: Respiration is an intricate interaction between visceral and musculoskeletal structures. In cystic fibrosis (CF), the airways and lungs are subject to progressive obstruction and destruction. However, knowledge about the musculoskeletal aspects of respiratory function and symptoms is still limited in this patient group. METHODS: In a cross-sectional comparative study, 21 adults with CF enrolled at the Gothenburg CF Centre were matched with 42 healthy controls...

BACKGROUND: In patients with recurrent pleural effusion, therapeutic thoracentesis is one way of relief. Correct prediction of which patients will experience relief following drainage may support the management of these patients. This study aimed to assess the association between ultrasound (US) characteristics and a relevant improvement in dyspnoea immediately following drainage. METHODS: In a prospective, observational study, patients with recurrent unilateral pleural effusion underwent US evaluation of effusion characteristics and diaphragm movement measured by M-mode and the Area method before and right after drainage...

BACKGROUND: The adoption of avoidance diets by adult-onset asthmatics has not previously been studied. We hypothesized that avoidance diets would associate with adult-onset asthma, allergy, and aspirin-exacerbated respiratory disease (AERD). METHODS: A total of 1247 subjects with adult-onset asthma (age range: 31-91) from the Finnish national registry, and age- and sex-matched controls ( n  = 1970) participated in a questionnaire study in 1997. We estimated the association between asthma/allergy/AERD and avoidance diets, adjusting for potential confounding factors and validated the results in two retrospective cohorts of 5080 rhinitis/rhinosinusitis patients and 167 AERD patients from 2019 to 2020...

BACKGROUND: It is known that the mortality of pneumonia in patients with risk factors for aspiration is worse than that in those without these risk factors. However, it is still unknown which risk factors for aspiration predict prognosis. Therefore, we aimed to determine which risk factors for aspiration are associated with death or prolonged hospitalization. METHODS: We prospectively followed patients with community-acquired pneumonia at a single hospital providing acute to chronic care in Japan until they died or were discharged...

BACKGROUND: The criteria for significant bronchodilator responsiveness (BDR) were published in 2005 by the European Respiratory Society/American Thoracic Society, which were revised in 2021, however, data on the agreement between these two recommendations in untreated patients with airflow limitation are missing. AIMS: We aimed to study BDR to salbutamol (SABA) or ipratropium bromide (SAMA) in patients with suspected bronchial asthma or COPD at initial clinical presentation using the 2005 and 2021 criteria and explore clinical factors associated with BDR+...

BACKGROUND: The management of pulmonary nodules plays a critical role in early detection of lung cancer. Computed tomography (CT) has led to a stage-shift towards early-stage lung cancer, but regional differences in survival rates have been reported in Denmark. This study aimed to evaluate whether variations in nodule management among Danish health regions contributed to these differences. MATERIAL AND METHODS: The Danish Health Data Authority and Danish Lung Cancer Registry provided data on CT usage and lung cancer stage distribution, respectively...

INTRODUCTION: Spontaneous pneumothorax (SP) affects both young, otherwise healthy individuals and older persons with known underlying pulmonary disease. Initial management possibilities are evolving and range from observation to chest tube insertion. SP guidelines suggest an individualized approach based on multiple factors such as symptoms, size of pneumothorax, comorbidity and patient preference. AIM: With this Danish national survey we aimed to map organization of care including involved specialties, treatment choice, training, and follow-up plans to identify aspects, and optimization of spontaneous pneumothorax management...

Endoscopic ultrasound-guided fine needle aspiration biopsy (EUS-FNA) of the pancreas is performed routinely in many endoscopic centers as part of the diagnostic set-up for suspected pancreatic cancer. The use of transesophageal bronchoscopic ultrasound-guided fine needle aspiration (EUS-B-FNA) by pulmonologists has expanded significantly, since it enables effective diagnosis of lesions in the mediastinum and upper abdomen. The following case demonstrates the safety and feasibility of EUS-B-FNA in a patient with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) cancer and a pancreatic mass of unknown origin...

UNLABELLED: Asthma is a heterogenous disease characterized by airway inflammation and variable expiratory airflow limitation resulting in variable respiratory symptoms. Characterization of airway inflammation is important to choose the optimal treatment for severe asthma patients eligible for biological treatment. However, counting cells in induced sputum samples are a time-consuming process, highly dependent on personal skills. Replacing eosinophil and neutrophil cell counting with qPCR for transcripts of selected mast cell, and basophil genes may provide more reproducible results...

Cough is a condition that can be caused by several different mechanisms. There are numerous guidelines for diagnosing the cause of cough, yet the effect of a well-constructed examination framework has not been investigated. At the Department of Internal Medicine, Lillebaelt Hospital, Vejle, a systematic examination framework for diagnosing cough was introduced. Two hundred consecutive patients referred to the pulmonary outpatient clinic with cough were included. The first 100 patients (Group 1) were included before implementation of the examination framework and diagnosed as usual...

BACKGROUND: Childhood-onset allergic asthma is the best-known phenotype of asthma. Adult-onset asthma, also an important entity, is instead often shown to be more non-allergic. There is still a lack of studies concerning the association of allergies and age at asthma onset from childhood to late adulthood. The aim of the study was to assess the age at onset of asthma symptoms and age at asthma diagnosis among adults with allergic and non-allergic asthma. METHODS: Questionnaires were sent to 2000 randomly selected Finnish adults aged 18-80 years who were dispensed medication for obstructive airway diseases during the previous year...

INTRODUCTION: Thoracic ultrasound (TUS) has proven useful in the diagnosis, risk stratification and monitoring of disease progression in patients with coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). However, utility in follow-up is poorly described. To elucidate this area, we performed TUS as part of a 12-month clinical follow-up in patients previously admitted with COVID-19 and correlated findings with clinical assessment and pulmonary function tests. METHODS: Adult patients discharged from our hospital following admission with COVID-19 during March to May 2020 were invited to a 12-month follow-up...

INTRODUCTION: It remains unclear whether long-term non-invasive ventilation (LT-NIV) for patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) improves survival and reduces admissions as results from randomized trials are inconsistent. We aim to determine whether LT-NIV initiated after an admission with acute hypercapnic respiratory failure (AHRF) can affect survival and admission rate in COPD patients. METHODS: A randomized controlled open-label trial, allocating patients with COPD to LT-NIV or standard of care immediately after an admission with AHRF treated with acute NIV...

BACKGROUND: Sedating antihistamines such as promethazine are used as anxiolytics and hypnotic agents for patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) with and without asthma despite limited knowledge of its effects and side effects. We evaluated if treatment with promethazine had a lower risk of harmful outcome. METHODS: Nationwide retrospective cohort study of Danish specialist diagnosed outpatients with COPD treated with promethazine or an active comparator (melatonin)...

PURPOSE: When first-line chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS) treatment fails, patients can either be treated with oral or injected systemic corticosteroids. Although the EPOS and international guidelines for CRS do not mention injected corticosteroids, it is commonly used by ear, nose, and throat specialists. While the risks of systemic corticosteroids, in general, are known, the pros and cons of injected and oral corticosteroids (OCS) in CRS treatment are unclear. METHODS: A systematic review of studies that report the effects and/or side effects of injected and oral corticosteroids in the treatment of CRS was made according to the PRISMA guidelines...

Adherence to inhaled corticosteroids (ICS) has been described as poor. In adherence studies, if the actual prescribed dosing is not available, generic defined daily doses (DDD) are applied instead when assessing adherence. We evaluated asthma patients' adherence in a large prospective follow-up survey. We also analysed whether World Health Organization (WHO) and Global Initiative for Asthma (GINA) reference doses give different results. The current study was cross-sectional and included respondents attending to HeSSup follow-up questionnaire in 2012...
