Pneumothorax: Practice Essentials, Background, Anatomy

Pneumothorax is defined as the presence of air or gas in the pleural cavity (ie, the potential space between the visceral and parietal pleura of the lung). The clinical results are dependent on the degree of collapse of the lung on the affected side.

Prenatal treatments for babies with congenital diaphragmatic hernia | Cochrane

A congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) is a hole in the diaphragm, the muscle that helps with breathing and separates the chest and abdomen. This defect can allow the liver and bowel to move to the chest cavity and interfere with lung development, affecting lung and heart function in newborn babies. At birth, respiratory insufficiency and pulmonary hypertension contribute to poor outcomes. About one in every 3000 babies may be affected and the problem can be diagnosed during a routine mid-pregnancy ultrasound at around 20 weeks. For babies born with a CDH, surgery in early life is necessary, but even with new surgical techniques there can be a poor outlook and many long-term medical problems. Treatments are now possible in pregnancy. Interventions described to date include maternal antenatal corticosteroid administration and prenatal tracheal occlusion to improve lung growth and maturity by obstruction of the fetal trachea. This increases airway pressure by preventing secreted lung fluid from leaving the lungs resulting in growth and expansion of the lungs. There are potential side effects and complications for the mother with this procedure as the uterus and amniotic sac are entered in order to gain access to the unborn baby.

The lung study promising a breath of fresh air in research world

Researchers see it as a test bed for “real world” trials that could lead to the quicker introduction of drugs and medical devices. The Salford Lung Study is examining the safety and effectiveness of a new treatment for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) in 80 general practices around Salford in north west England.1 About 2500 patients are participating, half randomised to a new inhalation powder Relvar Ellipta (fluticasone furoate/vilanterol) and half to usual treatment.

Effect of applying cricoid pressure during rapid sequence induction of general anaesthesia | Cochrane

Rapid sequence induction (RSI) is a technique used by critical care clinicians, mainly anaesthetists, intensive care physicians and emergency physicians, when setting out to secure a clear airway for a general anaesthetic and the patient is thought to be at risk of vomiting their stomach contents into their airway and down into their lungs. Stomach contents in the lungs can cause infection of the lung and, in severe cases, death. Cricoid pressure is a technique where pressure is placed on an area of bone-like tissue in the neck to flatten the oesophagus (tube that connects the mouth to the stomach). This is intended to prevent vomiting up of the stomach contents. The application of cricoid pressure for this purpose is very common. It is, however, a controversial practice as some clinicians and researchers believe it to be ineffective. It may also interfere with the clinician's view of the patient's airway.

Early use of azithromycin may reduce severity of wheezing, study finds

Giving azithromycin to children with a history of recurrent severe lower respiratory tract illness may reduce the severity of further episodes, a randomised double blind placebo controlled trial published in JAMA has found,1 although experts warn that widespread use of such a strategy could result in increased antibiotic resistance.
