Your healthcare professional will show you how to blow into the spirometer before you begin. You may need to wear a soft clip over your nose to stop air leaking out of your nostrils. Before starting the test, you might be asked to breathe in deeply and out gently into the spirometer. You will then be asked to blow at least three times, but usually no more than 10 times, into the spirometer.

Simone Gambazza
At the start of my career, following 3 years of undergraduate education in physiotherapy, it was crystal clear that I was more inclined to the respiratory field rather than musculoskeletal or neurological practice. At that time, after six enthusiastic months spent at Lacor Hospital (Gulu, Uganda) writing my graduation thesis, my remaining options were a 2-year Master's level degree (MSc), introduced in Italy in late 2004, randomly following some educational courses offered by the only Italian association of physiotherapists dealing with respiratory disease (Associazione Riabilitatori dell'Insufficienza Respiratoria; ARIR) or, eventually, deepening my understanding and, therefore, management of respiratory diseases through the available 1-year postgraduate track at the University of Milan (Milan, Italy)...

In Portugal, a medical degree takes 6 years, including a master's degree, ever since the Bologna Agreement of 2009. After this, and according to the Ordem dos Médicos ( College of Physicians ), one must complete 2 years of fully supervised clinical practice to be able to practice medicine. During this period, junior doctors rotate through several different medical and chirurgical specialties, after which and according to their grade on a national examination, they chose a specialty and location. Pneumology/respiratory medicine is one of the options and every year roughly 30 residents begin this 5-year specialty...

Nursing education in the Republic of Croatia is conducted at the secondary and higher education levels (post-secondary and tertiary). Croatian nursing education is in line with the recommendations of European Directives 2005/36/EC [1] and 2013/55/EU [2]. High school (secondary level) education lasts for 5 years; after graduation, students are awarded the title "general care nurse" [3].

REVIEW
Christian R Osadnik
In 2018, Australia's population of approximately 25 million people is serviced by almost 32 000 registered physiotherapists [1]. Physiotherapists in Australia traditionally obtain their qualification via a 4-year, full-time equivalent undergraduate professional degree. This typically involves 2 or 3 years of full-time, university-based education followed by full-time clinical education, during which the student is immersed in real-world clinical training under the supervision of physiotherapy clinicians...

REVIEW
Martyn F Biddiscombe, Omar S Usmani
Inhaled medication is the cornerstone in the treatment of patients across a spectrum of respiratory diseases including asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. The benefits of inhaled therapy have long been recognised but the most important innovations have occurred over the past 60 years, beginning with the invention of the pressurised metered dose inhaler. However, despite over 230 different device and drug combinations currently being available, disease control is far from perfect. Here we look at how innovation in inhaler design may improve treatments for respiratory diseases and how new formulations may lead to treatments for diseases beyond the lungs...

REVIEW
Kostas Archontogeorgis, Evangelia Nena, Nikolaos Papanas, Paschalis Steiropoulos
Obstructive sleep apnoea syndrome (OSAS) is a common disorder of multifactorial pathogenesis and is associated with obesity, diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin with an important function in calcium absorption and homeostasis, which is also implicated in several nonskeletal conditions. The prevalence of vitamin D deficiency is increasing worldwide and is associated with similar metabolic disturbances to OSAS. Moreover, recent data suggest that in OSAS patients serum levels of vitamin D are lower compared with non-apnoeic subjects...

Luis Ribeiro, Philip W Ind
Increasing cannabis use and legalisation highlights the paucity of data we have on the safety of cannabis smoking for respiratory health. Unfortunately, concurrent use of tobacco among marijuana smokers makes it difficult to untangle individual effect of marijuana smoking. Chronic cannabis only smoking has been shown in large cohort studies to reduce forced expiratory volume in 1 s/forced vital capacity via increasing forced vital capacity in chronic use contrary to the picture seen in tobacco smoking. The cause of this is unclear and there are various proposed mechanisms including respiratory muscle training secondary to method of inhalation and acute anti-inflammatory effect and bronchodilation of cannabis on the airways...

REVIEW
Nicolino Ambrosino, Enrica Bertella
Chronic respiratory diseases are among the four major human chronic diseases. Tobacco smoke as well as environmental pollutants, infections, physical activity and nutritional status play a role in the prevalence, development and/or progression of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Changes in lifestyle are possible and may be beneficial in prevention and comprehensive management of COPD. Population-level interventions aimed at early diagnosis, promotion of vaccinations and prevention of infections, and reductions in smoking, environmental pollutants, physical inactivity, obesity and malnutrition may increase the number of life-years lived in good health...

"It is a basic truth of the human condition that everybody lies. The only variable is about what." In paediatric asthma, patients don't take their treatments and doctors rarely ask the right questions. The end result is far too many child deaths. http://ow.ly/OaGK30kFtsD.
