#zrodlo

Centrilobular emphysema is a form of emphysema where the damage begins in the central lobes of the lungs and spreads outward. This is distinct from panlobular emphysema. In this article, we discuss centrilobular emphysema including symptoms, causes, complications, and possible treatments.

Research sheds light on a novel disease mechanism in chronic smokers

Added: 21.05.2018 22:44 | 0 views | 0 comments

#zrodlo

Research suggests that an immune signalling protein called interleukin (IL)-26 is increased among chronic smokers with lung disease and this involvement reveals disease mechanisms of interest for developing more effective therapy for these hard-to-treat patients.

COPD-associated inflammation halted in model experiment

Added: 03.05.2018 14:27 | 2 views | 0 comments


Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, or COPD for short, is believed to be the third most common cause of death worldwide. However, because the underlying mechanism is still largely unknown, today's treatments can only slow progression of the disease. Scientists have now reported a previously unknown pathogenic mechanism, which they have already been able to prevent in the laboratory.

Do BiPAP machines work for COPD?

Added: 27.04.2018 13:00 | 2 views | 0 comments

#zrodlo

A BiPAP machine is a small breathing device that can help a person with COPD to breathe more easily. It can be used at night or when symptoms flare. BiPAP therapy stabilizes air pressure, helping the lungs to inflate and deflate. BiPAP is not necessary for everyone but can improve life quality for some with COPD.

Formidable duo: Protective effect of CD9 and CD81 in COPD and accelerated aging

Added: 16.04.2018 10:34 | 2 views | 0 comments


Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a disease of accelerated lung aging, but the mechanism remains unclear. Researchers studied the aging-like phenotype and its underlying mechanisms in a COPD mouse model. Double deletion of tetraspanins CD9 and CD81 in epithelial cells downregulated expression of the protein SIRT. As SIRT1 is a key molecule that protects against various lifestyle-related diseases and aging, these tetraspanins may serve as novel therapeutic targets for COPD and aging.

Why do we use pulse oximetry?

Added: 12.04.2018 7:43 | 2 views | 0 comments

#zrodlo

Pulse oximetry measures how much oxygen is in the blood. The device is clipped onto a finger or a wrist and the percentage of oxygen saturation becomes visible on a screen. It can help doctors monitor cardiovascular and other conditions. The use of an oximeter at home may or may not be helpful. Find out more.

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is widespread in China with 8.6 percent of the country's adult population -- almost 100 million people -- suffering from the chronic lung disease, according to a new study. The study, which provided lung-function screenings for more than 50,990 participants, is the largest survey of COPD across age groups ever conducted in China.

Three-quarters of COPD cases are linked to childhood risk factors that are exacerbated in adulthood

Added: 05.04.2018 22:34 | 2 views | 0 comments

#zrodlo

Three-quarters of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) cases have their origins in poor lung function pathways beginning in childhood. These pathways are associated with exposures in childhood, and amplified by factors in adulthood, according to a cohort study. While smoking remains the biggest risk factor for COPD, the study demonstrates that childhood illnesses (such as asthma, bronchitis, pneumonia, allergic rhinitis, eczema) and exposures to parental smoking are also linked to the disease.
