The development of molecular testing for identifying somatic mutations and immune checkpoint biomarkers has directed treatment towards personalized medicine for patients with non-small cell lung cancer. The choice of molecular testing in a clinical setting is influenced by cost, expertise in the technology, instrumentation setup and sample type availability. The molecular techniques described in this review include immunohistochemistry (IHC), fluorescent in situ hybridization, direct sequencing, real-time polymerase chain reaction (PCR), denaturing high-performance liquid chromatography, matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization time of flight mass spectrometry and next-generation sequencing (NGS)...

Non-invasive ventilation (NIV) with bilevel positive airway pressure is a non-invasive technique, which refers to the provision of ventilatory support through the patient's upper airway using a mask or similar device. This technique is successful in correcting hypoventilation. It has become widely accepted as the standard treatment for patients with hypercapnic respiratory failure (HRF). Since the 1980s, NIV has been used in intensive care units and, after initial anecdotal reports and larger series, a number of randomized trials have been conducted...

Early in the history of non-invasive ventilation (NIV) for disorders of hypoventilation, treatment was provided by volume-limited (VL) devices. Currently, NIV is commonly provided by pressure-limited (PL) devices because of greater portability, lower cost and studies showing increased patient comfort. There are now volume-targeted (VT) devices, which aim to combine the advantages of more stable ventilation associated with VL and greater comfort of PL mode. VT devices automatically adjust pressure support, within a defined range, to target a preset level of ventilation...

Demand oxygen delivery systems (DODS) enable prolongation of liquid oxygen cylinder life compared to continuous oxygen flow (CONT) use. Evidence is lacking, however, regarding their efficacy. This study investigated the literature comparing liquid-based CONT to DODS in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Four electronic databases were searched from 1980 until January 2018. Primary outcomes were oxyhaemoglobin saturation (SpO2 %) at rest and during exercise and exercise performance. Risk of bias was evaluated using the Cochrane tool...

Patients with end-stage chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) frequently develop chronic hypercapnic respiratory failure (CHRF), with disabling symptoms and poor survival. The use of long-term nocturnal non-invasive ventilation (NIV) to treat CHRF in COPD has long been subject of debate due to conflicting evidence. However, since the introduction of high-intensity NIV (HI-NIV) in COPD, physiological and clinical benefits have been shown. HI-NIV refers to specific ventilator settings used for NIV aimed at achieving normocapnia or the lowest partial arterial carbon dioxide pressure (PaCO2 ) values as possible...

Bronchiectasis is a chronic lung disease associated with structurally abnormal bronchi, clinically manifested by a persistent wet/productive cough, airway infections and recurrent exacerbations. Early identification and treatment of acute exacerbations is an integral part of monitoring and annual review, in both adults and children, to minimize further damage due to infection and inflammation. Common modalities used to monitor disease progression include clinical signs and symptoms, frequency of exacerbations and/or number of hospital admissions, lung function (forced expiratory volume in 1 s (FEV1 )% predicted), imaging (radiological severity of disease) and sputum microbiology (chronic infection with Pseudomonas aeruginosa)...

Bronchiectasis has received increased attention recently, including an emphasis on preventing infective exacerbations that are associated with disease progression and lung function decline. While there are several bacteria and viruses associated with bronchiectasis, licensed vaccines are only currently available for Streptococcus pneumoniae, Haemophilus influenzae (H. influenzae protein D as a conjugate in a pneumococcal vaccine), Mycobacterium tuberculosis, Bordetella pertussis and influenza virus. The evidence for the efficacy and effectiveness of these vaccines in both preventing and managing bronchiectasis in children and adults is limited with the focus of most research being on other chronic lung disorders, such as chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases, asthma and cystic fibrosis...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: We previously reported that histogram-based quantitative evaluation for endobronchial ultrasonography (EBUS) B-mode images could differentiate between benign and malignant lesions. However, these images were generated from reconstructed raw radiofrequency (RF) signals and had some limitations. Currently, there are no reports on raw RF signal data to quantitatively differentiate ultrasound information for peripheral pulmonary lesions. METHODS: We prospectively hypothesized that RF spectral analysis from EBUS images could reveal sonographic features of peripheral pulmonary diseases...

Mark W Elliott
Audits and case reviews of the acute delivery of non-invasive ventilation (NIV) have shown that the results achieved in real life often fall short of those achieved in research trials. Factors include inappropriate selection of patients for NIV and failure to apply NIV correctly. This highlights the need for proper training of all involved individuals. This article addresses the different skills needed in a team to provide an effective NIV service. Some detail is given in each of the key areas but it is not comprehensive and should stimulate further learning (reading, attendance on courses, e-learning, etc...
