Airway clearance techniques in bronchiectasis | Cochrane

Bottom line: We reviewed the evidence to determine whether airway clearance techniques (ACTs) are helpful for people with bronchiectasis. The sparse data that we found suggest that their effect on the number of exacerbations (flare-ups) is unknown. Airway clearance techniques seem to be safe, and two small studies indicate that they may improve quality of life. Airway clearance techniques also led to clearance of more mucus from the lungs and some improvement in defined measures of lung function, but no change in oxygenation. A reduction in symptoms of breathlessness, cough and mucus was found in one study. Other outcomes of interest were hospitalisation and prescription of antibiotics, but these were not yet reported. Overall, the impact of ACTs on individuals experiencing chest infection is unknown. On the basis of this information, current guidelines for treating bronchiectasis recommend routine assessment for ACTs and prescription as required.

Critical Care

In this article we review recent advances made in the pathophysiology, diagnosis, and treatment of inhalation injury. Historically, the diagnosis of inhalation injury has relied on nonspecific clinical exam findings and bronchoscopic evidence. The development of a grading system and the use of modalities such as chest computed tomography may allow for a more nuanced evaluation of inhalation injury and enhanced ability to prognosticate. Supportive respiratory care remains essential in managing inhalation injury. Adjuncts still lacking definitive evidence of efficacy include bronchodilators, mucolytic agents, inhaled anticoagulants, nonconventional ventilator modes, prone positioning, and extracorporeal membrane oxygenation. Recent research focusing on molecular mechanisms involved in inhalation injury has increased the number of potential therapies.
