Spirometry is a standard lung function test for diagnosis and staging of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Impulse oscillometry (IOS) can be complementary to spirometry, especially in patients at advanced age and with physical or mental disorders who cannot be diagnosed through spirometry. The aim of this study was to compare IOS and spirometry(More)
presence of either RTX or OFA, but not to either agent alone. The addition of DPI rescued NK cells, strongly suggesting NADPH oxidase– and ROS-dependent NK cell death (Figure 1E). During the course of these experiments we did not have access to the glycoengineered antibody obinituzumab, but given its profound capacity to stimulate neutrophils, it is likely(More)
The impulse oscillometry (IOS) is recognized as a complementary method to spirometry in the diagnostics of obstructive pulmonary disorders. The IOS enables to measure total respiratory resistance (R5) and proximal respiratory resistance (R20), with the R5-R20 difference reflecting small airway resistance. This study seeks to evaluate the usefulness of(More)
The aim of this study was to assess the utility of the Berlin questionnaire (BQ) in adult patients at high risk of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). The study consisted of 64 patients recruited for the polysomnography diagnostics of sleep respiratory disturbances. The anthropometric assessment included body weight, height, and body mass index (BMI), all(More)
Lung cancer is the most common cause of cancer mortality in men and the fourth most common in women. The most frequent location of distant metastases are: the pleura, liver, suprarenal gland, brain, bones, pericardium and subcutaneous tissue. Others locations of distant metastases are very rare. This case report presents a 61-year-old female patient treated(More)
The authors discuss the etiology and pathogenesis of SSPE in the light of own observations of two boys aged 8 and 9 years whose one grandfather and one grandmother were siblings. The boys lived in different parts of Poland and never been in contact with each other. In the light of this observation the authors discuss the possibility of a genetic background(More)
Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), a disorder characterized by repetitive collapse of the upper respiratory tract during sleep, occurs in about 4% of middle-aged men and 2% of women. The incidence of the disorder is rising due to an increase in obesity and ageing of the population. Patients with obstructive sleep apnea are at elevated risk of some endocrinal(More)
