BACKGROUND Neuraminidase inhibitors were widely used during the 2009-10 influenza A H1N1 pandemic, but evidence for their effectiveness in reducing mortality is uncertain. We did a meta-analysis of individual participant data to investigate the association between use of neuraminidase inhibitors and mortality in patients admitted to hospital with pandemic(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the clinical and prognostic features of patients admitted to intensive care unit (ICU) with pandemic 2009 influenza A (H1N1) virus. METHODS Patients admitted to the intensive care unit for severe pneumonia associated with pandemic 2009 influenza A (H1N1) virus were evaluated. RESULTS The study included 20 patients with the mean(More)
BACKGROUND Obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS) is characterized by repetitive collapse of the upper airway during sleep. Red blood cell distribution width (RDW) increases platelet activation and has been reported as an independent predictor of adverse outcomes in the general population and is believed to be associated with cardiovascular morbidity and(More)
BACKGROUND The impact of neuraminidase inhibitors (NAIs) on influenza-related pneumonia (IRP) is not established. Our objective was to investigate the association between NAI treatment and IRP incidence and outcomes in patients hospitalised with A(H1N1)pdm09 virus infection. METHODS A worldwide meta-analysis of individual participant data from 20 634(More)
OBJECTIVES Pulmonary hypertension (PH) is a common and well established complication of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Its presence is associated with decreased survival. This study was designed to investigate the PH frequency and its relations in hospitalized tobacco and biomass related COPD patients. METHODS AND RESULTS The study was a(More)
INTRODUCTION Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a progressive condition characterized by poorly reversible airflow limitations associated with an abnormal inflammatory response of the lung. METHODS We investigated whether prolidase levels in serum, total antioxidant status, total oxidative status (TOS), and the oxidative stress index (OSI)(More)
BACKGROUND Due to overlapping symptoms and inadequate exercise capacity, noninvasive diagnosis of coronary artery disease (CAD) may be under- or overestimated in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). OBJECTIVE To assess outcomes of coronary angiography in COPD patients depending on baseline clinical characteristics. METHODS Medical(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to investigate the feasibility of main pulmonary artery diameter quantification by thoracic computerized tomography (CT) in the diagnosis of pulmonary hypertension seconder to biomass smoke exposure. MATERIAL AND METHODS One hundred and four women subjects with biomass smoke exposure and 20 healthy women subjects were(More)
