Independent information of nonspecific biomarkers in exhaled breath condensate.
Respiration

Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Exhaled breath condensate (EBC) has been used for diagnosing and monitoring respiratory disorders. For clinical purposes the assessment of easy-to-obtain nonspecific markers seems particularly interesting.

Exhaled and nasal nitric oxide in laryngectomized patients.
BMC Pulm Med
PUBLISHED: 01-28-2010
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Nitric oxide (NO) shows differing concentrations in lower and upper airways. Patients after total laryngectomy are the only individuals, in whom a complete separation of upper and lower airways is guaranteed. Thus the objective of our study was to assess exhaled and nasal NO in these patients.

Lung diffusing capacity for nitric oxide and carbon monoxide in relation to morphological changes as assessed by computed tomography in patients with cystic fibrosis.
BMC Pulm Med
PUBLISHED: 06-16-2009
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Due to large-scale destruction, changes in membrane diffusion (Dm) may occur in cystic fibrosis (CF), in correspondence to alterations observed by computed tomography (CT). Dm can be easily quantified via the diffusing capacity for nitric oxide (DLNO), as opposed to the conventional diffusing capacity for carbon monoxide (DLCO). We thus studied the relationship between DLNO as well as DLCO and a CF-specific CT score in patients with stable CF.

Indoor air contamination during a waterpipe (narghile) smoking session.
Food Chem. Toxicol.
PUBLISHED: 01-13-2009
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
The smoke of waterpipe contains numerous substances of health concern, but people mistakenly believe that this smoking method is less harmful and addictive than cigarettes. An experiment was performed in a 57 m3 room on two dates with no smoking on the first date and waterpipe smoking for 4h on the second date. We measured volatile organic compounds (VOC), polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH), metals, carbon monoxide (CO), nitrogen oxides (e.g. NO), as well as particle mass (PM), particle number concentration (PNC) and particle surface area in indoor air. High concentrations were observed for the target analytes during the 4-h smoking event. The median (90th percentile) values of PM(2.5), PNC, CO and NO were 393 (737 microg/m(3)), 289,000 (550,000 particles/cm(3)), 51 (65 ppm) and 0.11 (0.13 ppm), respectively. The particle size distribution has a maximum of particles relating to a diameter of 17 nm. The seven carcinogenic PAH were found to be a factor 2.6 higher during the smoking session compared to the control day. In conclusion, the observed indoor air contamination of different harmful substances during a WP session is high, and exposure may pose a health risk for smokers but in particular for non-smokers who are exposed to ETS.

What is the optimal management option for occupational asthma?
Eur Respir Rev
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
The optimal management of occupational asthma remains uncertain in clinical practice. The aim of this review was to analyse the published information pertaining to the management of occupational asthma in order to produce evidence-based statements and recommendations. A systematic literature search was conducted up to March 2010 to identify original studies addressing the following different treatment options: 1) persistence of exposure; 2) pharmacological treatment; 3) complete avoidance of exposure; 4) reduction of exposure; and 5) the use of personal protective equipment. After full text evaluation of 83 potentially relevant articles, 52 studies were retained for analysis. The conclusions from this systematic review are limited by the methodological weaknesses of most published studies. Critical analysis of available evidence indicates that: 1) persistent exposure to the causal agent is more likely to result in asthma worsening than complete avoidance; 2) there is insufficient evidence to determine whether pharmacological treatment can alter the course of asthma in subjects who remain exposed; 3) avoidance of exposure leads to recovery of asthma in less than one-third of affected workers; 4) reduction of exposure seems to be less beneficial than complete avoidance of exposure; and 5) personal respiratory equipment does not provide complete protection.

What is Visualize?

JoVE Visualize is a tool created to match the last 5 years of PubMed publications to methods in JoVE's video library.

How does it work?

We use abstracts found on PubMed and match them to JoVE videos to create a list of 10 to 30 related methods videos.

Video X seems to be unrelated to Abstract Y...

In developing our video relationships, we compare around 5 million PubMed articles to our library of over 4,500 methods videos. In some cases the language used in the PubMed abstracts makes matching that content to a JoVE video difficult. In other cases, there happens not to be any content in our video library that is relevant to the topic of a given abstract. In these cases, our algorithms are trying their best to display videos with relevant content, which can sometimes result in matched videos with only a slight relation.
