Genic variability has a role in bronchial asthma susceptibility and the influence of its gravity, and also influences therapy efficacy. Clinical trials demonstrated that beta2 adrenoreceptors variability has an influence on the response to bronchodilator therapy. Some mutations induce resistance to bronchial asthma occurrence (Q27E which reduces(More)
Obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS) is a complex disease, which frequently links and interacts with other conditions, such as cardiovascular disease, cerebrovascular disease, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, erectile dysfunction. OSAS has a significant response on daily activities, including an increased risk for acute cardiovascular events,(More)
The aim of the study was to establish the presence and severity (number of components) of metabolic syndrome (MS) in patients with obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS). We conducted a cross-sectional study on 146 patients admitted in 2012 to Sleep Laboratory Cluj-Napoca, for nocturnal sleep study. The prevalence of MS was 75.3%. There were significant(More)
Obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSA), a highly prevalent disease, has been linked in recent years to cardiometabolic conditions. The aim of this study was to analyze the prediction of arterial hypertension in patients with obstructive sleep apnea. We examined the records of 151 patients referred to our Sleep Laboratory Center for nocturnal(More)
Although its real incidence is not clearly established, malignant pleural effusions is one of the more common problems that internists, pneumologists and oncologists face in their daily practice. Because the patients are already terminally ill, it is important to obtain a diagnosis expeditiously and formulate a treatment plan that optimizes quality of life.
BACKGROUND AND AIMS Obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSA) affects the quality of life (QOL) due to the effects on the patient's physical and mental function. QOL in sleep apnea may improve under continuous airway positive pressure (CPAP) therapy. The purpose of this study was to assess the OSA patients QOL before and after 3 months of CPAP therapy using(More)
Tuberculosis is a global killer, claiming the lives of more than two million people annually and sickening millions more. Smoking increases the risks of becoming infected with tuberculosis, of developing the active form of disease and of dying from it. Therefore controlling the tobacco epidemic we will help control the TB epidemic. Clinicians should be more(More)
Pleuropulmonary manifestations in connective tissue diseases are frequent and variable. Pleural involvement is due especially to autoimmune inflammation and vasculitis, causing increased capillary permeability. Many of pleural effusions are asymptomatic, but with advancement in chest scanning techniques and immunohistology, pleuropulmonary abnormalities are(More)
