Malaria is an important treatable cause of acute lung injury (ALI) and acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) in the tropics and in the returning traveller in the non-endemic areas. ARDS is an important complication in severe, complicated falciparum malaria and has been described in P. vivax and P. ovale malaria also. Malarial ALI/ARDS is more common in(More)
BACKGROUND Atrial fibrillation (AF) is a common complication after lung transplantation (LT). Since the lung allocation score (LAS) was implemented in 2005, there has been significant evolution in the practice of LT, necessitating re-evaluation of this arrhythmia. METHODS One hundred thirty-one patients undergoing LT between January 2011 and April 2013(More)
BACKGROUND Severe acute exacerbation of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (AE-COPD) is a common reason for emergency room (ER) visit about which little has been documented from India. METHODS Prospective study of the clinical presentation and predictors of outcome in 116 patients presenting with severe AE-COPD requiring admission to the medical(More)
routine in obstetric patients admitted to the studies with a larger sample size are required ICU may help in identifying those at high risk from India to validate the observations of mortality so that an attempt may be made documented in the study reported by Tempe to reduce this risk. et al.[5] Given the large number of teaching hospitals attached to(More)
BACKGROUND To study the clinical presentation, pulmonary functions and outcomes in subjects who were accidentally exposed to chlorine gas. METHODS Prospective observational study of 64 patients who sustained acute accidental exposure to chlorine gas during a leak in the chlorination system of the public bathing pool of a temple. RESULTS The major(More)
BACKGROUND There is a lack of data regarding clinical variables associated with successful bridge to lung transplantation (LT) using extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) support. METHODS We reviewed the institutional database for patients supported with veno-venous (VV) or veno-arterial ECMO as a bridge to LT (n=25; mean age: 50.6±14.2 years). We(More)
PURPOSE There is a lack of data regarding the independent association of pretransplant kidney function with early and late outcomes among lung transplant (LT) recipients. METHODS We queried the United Network for Organ Sharing database for adult patients (≥18 years of age) undergoing LT between 1987 and 2013. Glomerular filtration rate (GFR) was estimated(More)
BACKGROUND With the introduction of lung allocation score (LAS), increasingly sicker patients are undergoing lung transplantation (LT). This study was conducted to determine the time trends in need for dialysis after LT, identify variables independently associated with need for dialysis, and evaluate its association with 1- and 5-year mortality. METHODS(More)
BACKGROUND There has been little investigation into the potential interaction of recipient characteristics with the association of pre-transplant renal functions and survival after lung transplantation. In this study we tested the hypothesis that association of pre-transplant renal function and post-transplant mortality varies among recipient subgroups. (More)
