Gina report 2019

From Gina” The 2019 update of the Global Strategy for Asthma Management and Prevention incorporates new scientific information about asthma based on a review of recent scientific literature by an international panel of experts on the GINA Science Committee. This comprehensive and practical resource about one of the most common chronic lung diseases worldwide contains extensive citations from the scientific literature and forms the basis for other GINA documents and programs. “

The objective of this video is to help guide respiratory professionals in the administration of the methacholine challenge test to diagnose bronchial hyperreactivity in subjects who do not have clinically apparent asthma. This video is intended to enhance your knowledge and proficiency of the methacholine challenge test according to the American Thoracic Society and European Respiratory Society recommendations. It is a dose-response test; therefore the delivery of the methacholine and measurement of the response must be accurate in order to produce valid test results. http://www.provocholine.com/resources.html

Pediatric asthma lacks sensitive objective measures for asthma monitoring. The forced oscillation technique (FOT) offers strong feasibility across the paediatric age range but relationships between FOT parameter day-to-day variability and paediatric asthma severity and control are unknown.

Conclusions:  Increased day-to-day FOT variability exists in asthmatic school-aged children. Day-to-day Rrs variability was associated with asthma severity and with asthma control. FOT may be useful objective monitoring tool in paediatric asthma and warrants further study.

Conclusions In the surgical population, a STOP-Bang score of 5–8 identified patients with high probability of moderate/severe OSA. The STOP-Bang score can help the healthcare team to stratify patients for unrecognized OSA, practice perioperative precautions, or triage patients for diagnosis and treatment.
