BACKGROUND: The specialty of allergy developed quickly in western countries because of the rapid increase of allergic diseases, whereas it developed relatively slowly in China. The prevalence of allergen sensitization and allergic diseases in Zhejiang Province of China is high and improving the medical services for these diseases is critically needed. OBJECTIVE: To investigate the working status of the diagnosis and treatment of allergic diseases, including doctor resources, diagnostic methods, and allergen-specific immunotherapy in patients of Zhejiang Province, and to provide instructions for the strategic development of subspecialties of allergic diseases...

PURPOSE: Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) is a common cause of lower respiratory tract infection in young children. However, there are limited data on severe RSV infection requiring pediatric intensive care unit (PICU) admission. This retrospective study described features of RSV-associated PICU admissions in Hong Kong and investigated factors for mortality and duration of PICU stay. METHODS: Children with laboratory-confirmed RSV infection and admitted to the PICUs of all eight government hospitals in Hong Kong between January 2009 and June 2011 were identified from computerized auditing systems and PICU databases...

BACKGROUND: Data supporting the clinical use of infant lung function (ILF) tests are limited making the interpretation of clinical ILF measures difficult. OBJECTIVES: To evaluate current ILF testing practices and to survey users regarding the indications, limitations and perceived clinical benefits of ILF testing. METHODS: We created a 26-item survey hosted on the European Respiratory Society (ERS) website between January and May 2010. Notifications were sent to members of the ERS, American Thoracic Society and the Asian Pacific Society of Respirology...

BACKGROUND: : The wide variability in prevalence of childhood asthma across Asia Pacific is well documented, but less is known about its trends in mortality and hospitalization. OBJECTIVES: : To examine pediatric asthma mortality and hospitalization trends of selected countries across Asia Pacific, and also patterns of asthma drug utilization. MATERIALS AND METHODS: : Mortality and population data were sourced from the World Health Organization's mortality database...

PURPOSE: Respiratory management of Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) is not well studied and may vary across centers and practitioners. Our objective was to describe and compare the respiratory management practices of Canadian Pediatric Respirologists and Neuromuscular specialists for children with DMD. METHODS: A web-based survey was sent to all 56 practicing Canadian Pediatric Respirologists and to all 24 members of the Canadian Pediatric Neuromuscular Group (CPNG) who follow children with neuromuscular diseases...

BACKGROUND: Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) is the most common form of muscular dystrophy in childhood. METHOD: To assess the current care of paediatric DMD patients in Canada, a questionnaire was mailed to 17 physicians who were members of the Canadian paediatric neuromuscular group. Areas of enquiry included; 1) multidisciplinary team composition; 2) means of DMD diagnosis; 3) corticosteroid use; surveillance and management for: 4) orthopaedic, 5) respiratory and 6) cardiac complications and 7) health maintenance (nutrition & immunizations)...

The authors were given the charge of providing a vision of the future in paediatric respirology. Themes selected for being ripe for this visionary analysis include bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD), asthma, cystic fibrosis (CF), lung infections, obstructive sleep disordered breathing (OSDB) and pulmonary diagnostics and monitoring. A profound reduction or elimination of BPD is seen. Given the strong genetic component of this disease, genetic biomarkers will likely be identified that will permit much earlier recognition of BPD susceptibility and potentially the ability to modify disease course by altering gene expression...

BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVE: To integrate new evidence into the Canadian Asthma Management Continuum diagram, encompassing both pediatric and adult asthma. METHODS: The Canadian Thoracic Society Asthma Committee members, comprised of experts in pediatric and adult respirology, allergy and immunology, emergency medicine, general pediatrics, family medicine, pharmacoepidemiology and evidence-based medicine, updated the continuum diagram, based primarily on the 2008 Global Initiative for Asthma guidelines, and performed a focused review of literature pertaining to key aspects of asthma diagnosis and management in children six years of age and over, and adults...

CONTEXT: Educators across Canada are presently discussing whether the current 4-year residency programmes adequately prepare paediatricians for their future careers. Studies carried out in the USA have repeatedly shown areas of weakness in residency training, but there are no studies looking at the overall adequacy of training across Canada. OBJECTIVES: To assess practising paediatricians' perceptions of the adequacy of their residency training as preparation for clinical practice and to assess practising paediatricians' opinions about the required mandatory length of training...

OBJECTIVES: To establish national baseline information on asthma management practices of physicians, to compare the reported practices with the Canadian Consensus recommendations and to identify results potentially useful for interventions that improve physician asthma management practices. DESIGN: National, stratified cross-sectional survey. SETTINGS: The 10 provinces and two territories of Canada, from 1996 to 1997. PARTICIPANTS: Questionnaires were sent to 4489 physicians stratified by province/territory and specialty group (family/general practice, respirology, internal medicine, pediatrics and allergy/immunology); 2605 responses were received...

A report on adult and pediatric respirology manpower in Canada was prepared from data supplied by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada (RCPSC), and from program directors (and other colleagues) at universities across Canada. The data support a significant deficiency of adult respirologists in Canada, which is estimated to be from 10%, based on a 10-year-old outdated RCPSC recommendation, to 20%, based on equalization with the 'best' province, to as high as 50%, based on long waiting lists, particularly for respiratory sleep problems, and estimates obtained from academic centres across Canada...

OBJECTIVES: To collect national baseline information on asthma management practices by physicians, and to compare these practices with the recommendations of the Canadian Asthma Consensus Conference ('the guidelines'). DESIGN: Cross-sectional survey of representative samples of physicians in Canada in late 1996 and early 1997. POPULATION STUDIED: Five specialty types of physicians who manage asthma patients: respirology, pediatrics, internal medicine, allergy and clinical immunology, and general practice and family medicine...

A burn unit is only as good as its staff. Trained, experienced nurses, therapists and surgeons accustomed to dealing with large open wounds are a major requisite for the care of burned patients, who have a multisystem disease. Equipment needs include monitors, hydrotherapy tank, ready access to the operating room and comprehensive rehabilitation facilities. Skilled anesthesia, consultative support in nephrology, respirology, pediatrics and infectious diseases, a blood bank, access to human allograft and good microbiology support are necessary...
