  1. Noninvasive Ventilation in the Critically Ill Patient With Obesity Hypoventilation Syndrome: A Review.

    Sequeira, T; BaHammam, A; Esquinas, A
    Obesity is a global epidemic that adversely affects respiratory physiology. Sleep-disordered breathing and obesity hypoventilation syndrome (OHS) are among the most common pulmonary complications related to obesity class III. Patients with OHS may present with acute hypercapnic respiratory failure (AHRF) that necessitates immediate noninvasive ventilation (NIV) or invasive ventilation and intensive care unit (ICU) monitoring. The OHS is underrecognized as a cause of AHRF. The management of mechanical ventilation in obese ICU patients is one of the most challenging problems facing respirologists, intensivists, and anesthesiologists. The treatment of AHRF in patients with OHS should aim to improve alveolar ventilation with...

  4. Extensive upper respiratory tract sarcoidosis

    Soares, M; Sousa, C; Garanito, L; Freire, F
    Sarcoidosis is a chronic granulomatous disease of unknown aetiology. It can affect any part of the organism, although the lung is the most frequently affected organ. Upper airway involvement is rare, particularly if isolated. Sarcoidosis is a diagnosis of exclusion, established by histological evidence of non-caseating granulomas and the absence of other granulomatous diseases. The authors report a case of a man with sarcoidosis manifesting as a chronic inflammatory stenotic condition of the upper respiratory tract and trachea.

  7. Understanding COPD: a vision on phenotypes, comorbidities and treatment approach.

    Fragoso, E; André, S; Boléo-Tomé, JP; Areias, V; Munhá, J; Cardoso, J; GI DPOC-Grupo de Interesse na Doença Pulmonar Obstrutiva Crónica
    Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) phenotypes have become increasingly recognized as important for grouping patients with similar presentation and/or behavior, within the heterogeneity of the disease. The primary aim of identifying phenotypes is to provide patients with the best health care possible, tailoring the therapeutic approach to each patient. However, the identification of specific phenotypes has been hindered by several factors such as which specific attributes are relevant, which discriminant features should be used for assigning patients to specific phenotypes, and how relevant are they to the therapeutic approach, prognostic and clinical outcome. Moreover, the definition of phenotype is still...

  9. Infecções respiratórias em atletas: quando, como e porquê atuar?

    Santos, L; Longo, C
    As infeções respiratórias são frequentes entre adultos saudáveis a são o tipo de infeção mais frequente em atletas. O sistema imunitário pode ser estimulado ou deprimido de acordo com a carga de treino. Questões como quando parar, reduzir ou manter a carga de treino são de crucial importância para a segurança e saúde dos atletas, pelo que se abordam os mecanismos subjacentes às infeções respiratórias, a sua prevenção e tecem-se recomendações práticas.
