INTRODUCTION Although asthma and COPD are different pathologies, many patients share characteristics from both entities. These cases can have different evolutions and responses to treatment. Nevertheless, the evidence available is limited, and it is necessary to evaluate whether they represent a differential phenotype and provide recommendations about(More)
Communication environments are becoming increasingly more complex due to the diversity of available network technologies in terms of spatial coverage and design characteristics, and the proliferation of multi-function devices. In order to take full advantage of such technology capital, there is a growing need to reduce complexity for both end-users and(More)
BACKGROUND Interleukin 17 (IL-17) is induced during the early stages of tuberculosis infection, playing an important role in the defense against mycobacterial infection. To date, only one study performed in Chinese Han population has found an association between IL-17F sequence variants and susceptibility to tuberculosis, but no relationship has been found(More)
BACKGROUNDS AUDIPOC is a nationwide clinical audit that describes the characteristics, interventions and outcomes of patients admitted to Spanish hospitals because of an exacerbation of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (ECOPD), assessing the compliance of these parameters with current international guidelines. The present study describes hospital(More)
The success of the IP and its associated technologies has led to new challenges as we try to use it more widely in everyday communications. In particular, the drive toward wireless and highly heterogeneous infrastructures supporting IP services transparently and independent of the underlying physical layer is a challenge. In this context, this article(More)
RATIONALE Little is known about the longitudinal changes associated with using the 2013 update of the multidimensional GOLD strategy for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). OBJECTIVE To determine the COPD patient distribution of the new GOLD proposal and evaluate how this classification changes over one year compared with the previous GOLD(More)
This paper aims to address the deficiencies of current internetworking to support mobility and moving networks. We present a novel approach to consider networking in general the concept of Ambient Networks and discuss related mobility problems. We bring forth several challenges for future research demanding an architectural approach in order to reach a(More)
In this paper we propose a novel channel model for indoor wireless environments. Using a set of real measurements, we tune the parameters of an Auto-Regressive filter, which is the core of the proposed model; furthermore we assess that its behavior is much closer to real wireless links that those exhibited by some of the most currently used approaches. The(More)
