Importance of Smoking in Pulmonary Involvement of Rheumatoid Arthritis

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2015.568
Synopsis: 
Rheumatoid arthritis (RA), is a multi-systemic disease of unknown origin. The reason for the prominence of lungs involvement in some patients with the disease is not clearly defined. Since it was believed that smoking plays an important role in both etiology and progression of the disease, we evaluated the effects of smoking on disease activity, pulmonary functions and alveolar inflammation parameters in patients with RA.

ABSTRACT

Objectives:  The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of smoking on disease activity and pulmonary involvement in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA).

The Effect of Continuous Positive Airway Pressure on Basal Metabolism Rate in Patients with Severe Obstructive Sleep Apnea Syndrome

DOI: 
10:7727/wimj.2015.489
Synopsis: 
Basal metabolism rate (BMR) is defined as the energy consumption required for maintaining body functions and metabolic activities. Previous studies have shown significantly higher energy consumption in patients with obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS) compared to healthy subjects. The aim of this study is to evaluate the effects of short-term continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) treatment on basal metabolism rate in patients with severe OSAS.

ABSTRACT

Objectives: The aim of this study was to assess the effect of the continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) treatment on basal metabolism rate in patients with severe obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS).

Malignancy and Pulmonary Thromboembolism: Comparison of Symptomatic Cases with the Incidental Ones

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2015.227
Synopsis: 
The widespread use of computed tomography in oncology patients undergoing routine cancer staging scans resulted in increased incidental pulmonary embolism. The aim of this study was to compare the symptomatic and incidental pulmonary emboli cases in the oncologic patients sampled for this study.

 

ABSTRACT

Objectives: The use of advanced techniques of computed tomography (CT) was resulted in increased incidentally detected pulmonary embolism in oncology patients undergoing routine cancer staging CT scans. The aim of this study was to compare the symptomatic and incidental pulmonary emboli cases in oncologic patients.

Serum RDW Level of COPD Patients and the Characteristics of the Exacerbation

DOI: 
10.7727.wimj/2016.367
Synopsis: 
Red blood cell distribution width (RDW) is a measure of hemogram. Nearly one third of COPD patients have increased RDW levels and exitus rates are higher in this group. It is suggested that elevated RDW might be related with increased mortality in COPD patients.

ABSTRACT

Objectives: Red blood cell distribution width (RDW) is a measure of red blood cell size heterogeneity. The aim of this study was to evaluate the relationship between the RDW level and characteristics of the COPD exacerbations.

The Role of Cardioselective Beta Blockers in Cardiopulmonary Exercise Test and Echocardiography in COPD Patients

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2016.348
Synopsis: 
Physicians are still reluctant to use β-blockers in COPD patients as it is a contraindication. Previous studies evaluating pulmonary function test showed that β-blockers could be used in patients with COPD. The aim of this study is to evaluate the effect of cardioselective β-blockers on cardiopulmonary capacity during exercise. A novel test, CPET, is used in our study.

ABSTRACT

Objective: The aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of cardioselective β-blockers in echocardiography and cardiopulmonary exercise tests (CPET) in COPD patients.
