Home telemonitoring (forced expiratory volume in 1 s) in children with severe asthma does not reduce exacerbations
A treatment strategy based on daily FEV1 monitoring with medical feedback did not reduce severe asthma exacerbations and was not equivalent to a conventional strategy.
[Difficult asthma in children].
Studies on bronchoalveolar lavage and bronchial mucosa biopsies will perhaps help to better understand the pathophysiology and to improve the management of difficult asthma.
[Physiopathology of inflammatory events in asthma].
Bronchial inflammation is constant in patients with allergic asthma and persists even in the absence of symptoms, suggesting that therapeutic interventions should take place as early as possible, particularly in children.

THE RESTORATION OF THE NORMAL CARDIAC MECHANISM IN CASES OF AURICULAR FIBRILLATION BY MEANS OF QUINIDINE SULPHATE
The return of the normal cardiac mechanism has not been found to be invariable by any workers, the percentages of successful cascs varying up to 66 per cent in the most successful series, the averaae varying round 50 per cent.
THE EFFECT OF REDUCTION OF BLOOD POTASSIUM LEVEL IN THE TREATMENT OF A-V BLOCK AND IN THE PREVENTION OF ADAMS-STOKES ATTACKS.
It is true that there are clinical studies which indicate that a decrease of activity of an idioventricular focus with resulting Adams-Stokes crises may appear in cases of acidosis with hyperkalemia in patients with complete A-V block, and in order to combat Adams- Stokes crises in these cases, molar sodium lactate was suggested for treatment.
Pleuropericarditis, obliterative bronchiolitis and lymphocytic interstitial pneumonitis after allogeneic haematopoietic stem cell transplantation
A transplant patient who simultaneously manifested three distinct pulmonary processes: OB, patchy LIP and pleuropericarditis is described, which support all three entities as manifestations of GVHD in the lungs.
