Abstract

The effects of repeated short-term hypoxia on exercise tolerance in patients at risk for, or with mild COPD were investigated. Eighteen patients (10 males, 8 females; 33-72 years) were randomly assigned in a double-blind fashion to receive 15 sessions of intermittent hypoxia (FiO(2): 0....read more

Hypoxia

Hypoxia is a condition in which the body or a region of the body is deprived of adequate oxygen supply at the tissue level. Hypoxia may be classified as either generalized, affecting the whole body, or local, affecting a region of the body. Here is the latest research.

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (copd) is a progressive respiratory disease associated with increasing morbidity and mortality worldwide.

Coronary Artery Disease

Coronary artery disease is extremely prevalent in western societies and is the number one cause of morbidity and mortality industrialized countries. Known risk factors include hypertension, smoking and dyslipidemia. Discover the latest research on coronary artery disease here.

American Thoracic Society: Allergy, Immunology & Inflammation

This feed has been developed in conjunction with the American Thoracic Society for the benefit of its Allergy, Immunology, and Inflammation Assembly. It highlights new and impactful papers on allergy, asthma, genetics, and the pathogenesis of lung diseases.

Autoimmune Polyendocrinopathies

Autoimmune polyendocrinopathies, also called polyglandular autoimmune syndromes (PGASs), or polyendocrine autoimmune syndromes(PASs), are a heterogeneous group of rare diseases characterized by autoimmune activity against more than one endocrine organ, although non-endocrine organs can be affected. Discover the latest research on autoimmune polyendocrinopathies here.

Autoimmune Polyendocrine Syndromes

This feed focuses on a rare genetic condition called Autoimmune Polyendocrine Syndromes, which are characterized by autoantibodies against multiple endocrine organs. This can lead to Type I Diabetes.

Coronary Artery Aneurysm

Coronary artery aneurysms are the dilation of the coronary arteries that supply the heart tissue with blood and nutrients. The dilation exceeds 1.5 times the normal artery size. Complications can occur if these aneurysms rupture. Here is the latest research on coronary artery aneurysms.
