Small Airway Chronic Obstructive Disease Syndrome Following Exposure to WTC Dust

Many "Survivors" in the World Trade Center (WTC) clinical program have a clinical syndrome characterized by chronic obstruction in small airways and persistence of lower respiratory symptoms despite therapy. This study will test the hypothesis that persistent symptoms in WTC "Survivors" are associated with abnormal small airways whose dysfunction is ...

Resistance Training to Prehabilitate Patients With Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

Skeletal muscle dysfunction is common in patients with COPD and has been recognized as a contributing factor to reduced exercise capacity, health related quality of life and increased mortality associated with this disease. Several structural changes in the limb muscles of patients have previously been reported and have been linked ...

Phase N/A

High-Flow Nasal Oxygen Therapy for Exacerbation of Chronic Pulmonary Obstructive Disease.

As soon as admission to the intensive care unit, eligible patients who gave consent will be randomized to either HFNO or Noninvasive ventilation therapy for at least the first 24 hours. In the usual care group , Noninvasive ventilation will be applied in alternance with standard nasal oxygen therapy. In ...

Borg Score Outcomes in Respiratory Compromised Acute Exacerbating Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) Patients Receiving Treatment Via Vibrating Mesh Nebuliser Versus Jet Nebuliser in the Emergency Department

This study is a prospective, single-centre, open, randomised study to improve management of acute COPD exacerbation within the Emergency Department. Adults with severe COPD are randomised into 2 groups: vibrating mesh nebuliser or standard jet nebuliser treatment. Salbutamol (5mg) and Ipratropium (0.5mg) will be administered via Aerogen Ultra via valved ...

Phase N/A

During-exercise Physiological Effects of Nasal High-flow in Patients With Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

Experimental design: Patients referred for pulmonary rehabilitation will be approached to participate in this study. Eligible patients who agree to participate in the study and sign informed consent will perform two constant workload exercise testing the same day with either nasal high-flow or sham nasal high-flow (separated by a 1 ...
