PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Breathlessness is a common symptom in many chronic diseases and may be refractory to pharmacotherapy. In this review, we discuss the pathophysiology of breathlessness and the role of positive airway pressure (PAP) devices to ameliorate it. RECENT FINDINGS: Breathlessness is directly related to neural respiratory drive, which can be modified by addressing the imbalance between respiratory muscle load and capacity. Noninvasive PAP devices have been applied to patients limited by exertional breathless and, as the disease progresses, breathlessness at rest...

BACKGROUND: Exercise-induced desaturation in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) frequently has prognostic implications. Desaturation within the first minute of the walk 6-minute walk test will probably also occur in daily life activities and translate into hypoxaemic respiratory failure at rest in later years. This study aimed at comparing these patients with those who desaturate after the first minute and determine potential markers. METHODS: We conducted a cross-sectional, retrospective study collecting data on respiratory function tests, cardiovascular comorbidity, body mass index, pack-year index, 6-minute walk test outcomes, BODE index, and Charlson comorbidity index...

The emphasis that United States employers are placing on employee wellness continues to grow; however, most attention has been paid to larger firms to gauge return-on-investment from a larger pool of enrollees. With fewer resources available to fund expansive wellness programs, smaller businesses need a cost-effective mechanism to provide such benefits. As the most accessible healthcare provider, community pharmacists are in an ideal position to support certain wellness programs for smaller businesses. This research piloted a community pharmacist-led, employer-sponsored wellness program for a self-insured financial services company in Tennessee...

Physical activity (PA) is defined as bodily movement produced by skeletal muscles with energy expenditure beyond resting levels. PA is closely related to reduced morbidity and mortality in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Self-report questionnaires are often subject to recall bias, correlating poorly with objectively qualified PA, and do not provide an accurate estimate of free-living energy expenditure. PA may be objectively evaluated by newly developed tri-axial accelerometers by quantifying steps or body movements over a period of time...

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a complex and heterogeneous disease, and there is a clinical need for validated markers and biomarkers that can contribute to the assessment of patients, risk prediction, treatment guidance, and assessment of response. Although according to the 2018 GOLD guidelines clinically useful biomarkers for COPD patients in stable condition have yet to be identified, several clinical markers and biomarkers have been proposed for COPD. These include isolated clinical markers, such as symptoms and Health Status assessment, exercise tests, function tests and imaging, and also composite scores and molecular markers...

OBJECTIVE: To observe the immunoregulatory effect of electroacupuncture (EA) intervention for muscular dystrophy chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) rats, so as to investigate its underlying mechanism in improving respiratory function. METHODS: Forty male SD rats were randomly divided into 5 groups: normal, model, EA, exercise, and EA+ exercise ( n =8 in each). The muscular dystrophy COPD model was established by placing the rats in a closed box to be exposed to cigarette smoke (3-10 cigarettes/time) for 60 min, twice daily, 6 days a week for 90 days...

The interaction between the lung and the heart is a vast, complex, and fascinating topic and, from a clinical point of view, disorders of the one often influence and promote disorders of the other. This is especially true for chronic diseases, with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and ischemic heart disease (IHD) representing a classic example. Epidemiologic data indicate that cardiovascular diseases are frequent in patients with COPD, and vice versa. Accordingly, rates of IHD in COPD vary from 4% up to 60%, while, on the other hand, COPD has been reported in up to 30% of patients with coronary artery disease...

Pulmonary rehabilitation has short-term benefits on dyspnea, exercise capacity and quality of life in COPD, but evidence suggests these do not always translate to increased daily physical activity on a patient level. This is attributed to a limited understanding of the determinants of physical activity maintenance following pulmonary rehabilitation. This systematic review of qualitative research was conducted to understand COPD patients' perceived facilitators and barriers to physical activity following pulmonary rehabilitation...

OBJECTIVE: There is a need for simple tools to evaluate physical performance in patients with COPD before and after pulmonary rehabilitation. The aims of this study were to evaluate changes in short physical performance battery (SPPB)-scores in patients with COPD after a 4-week pulmonary rehabilitation program; explore possible relationships between SPPB-scores and exercise capacity (6-min walk distance), dyspnea (modified Medical Research Council's dyspnea scale), disease-specific quality of life (COPD assessment test), and pulmonary function (predicted forced expiratory volume in one second) at baseline; and explore if changes in SPPB-scores are related to changes in exercise capacity, dyspnea, and disease-specific quality of life following pulmonary rehabilitation...

BACKGROUND: In people with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), the use of neuromuscular electrostimulation (NMES) either alone, or together with conventional exercise training, might improve the condition of the peripheral muscles, increase exercise capacity and functional performance, reduce symptoms and improve health-related quality of life (HRQoL). OBJECTIVES: To determine the effects of NMES, applied in isolation or concurrently with conventional exercise training to one or more peripheral muscles, on peripheral muscle force and endurance, muscle size, exercise capacity, functional performance, symptoms, HRQoL and adverse events in people with COPD...

Compelling evidence has demonstrated that systemic inflammation among patients with stable chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is linked with increased levels of inflammatory cytokines. The aim of the present study was to investigate the effects associated with anti-reflux treatment on pulmonary ventilation function and inflammatory cytokines in patients with stable COPD and gastroesophageal reflux (GER). One hundred and thirty-six stable COPD and GER patients were recruited for the study and randomly designated into the routine treatment and the anti GER groups...

Limb muscle dysfunction in patients with COPD may be associated with local muscle and/or systemic inflammation, and therefore, we investigated whether exercise training altered markers of inflammation and oxidative stress. We obtained vastus lateralis muscle biopsies and venous blood samples from patients with COPD (n=30) before and after 8 weeks of resistance training (RT) (n=15) or endurance training (ET) (n=15). Healthy age-matched subjects were included as baseline controls (n=8). Inflammatory markers in muscle and systemically were determined by interleukins (IL), tumour necrosis factor alfa (TNF-α), leukocyte concentration together with immunohistochemical staining for macrophages...

Muscle oxidative capacity is a major determinant of maximum oxygen uptake (V̇O2max ). V̇O2max predicts survival in humans. Muscle oxidative capacity is low in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and can be assessed from the muscle oxygen consumption recovery rate constant ( k) using near-infrared spectroscopy. We hypothesized that 11 SNPs previously associated with the increase in V̇O2max following exercise training, would correlate with k in 152 non-Hispanic White and African American smokers with and without COPD...
