      Prognostic value of plasma N-terminal pro B-type natriuretic peptide levels in pneumonia patients requiring intensive care unit admission (pages 933–941)

      Shih-Chang Lin, Yi-Ju Tsai, Chun-Ta Huang, Yao-Wen Kuo, Sheng-Yuan Ruan, Yu-Chung Chuang and Chong-Jen Yu

      Article first published online: 25 JUL 2013 | DOI: 10.1111/resp.12096

      In adult patients admitted to the ICU with pneumonia, NT-proBNP levels independently predict mortality with a prognostic accuracy that is comparable with that of APACHE II scores and IDSA/ATS 2007 minor criteria. The findings extend the prognostic utility of NT-proBNP for critically ill pneumonia patients.

      Physician-performed ultrasound can accurately screen for a vulnerable intercostal artery prior to chest drainage procedures (pages 942–947)

      Matthew Salamonsen, Karen Dobeli, David McGrath, Craig Readdy, Robert Ware, Karin Steinke and David Fielding

      Article first published online: 25 JUL 2013 | DOI: 10.1111/resp.12088

      This paper examines the ability of US to image the intercostal artery, using CT angiography as a gold standard comparator, and demonstrates that a physician can reliably identify a vulnerable intercostal artery using thoracic US, prior to chest drainage procedures.

      Laryngeal sensory dysfunction in laryngeal hypersensitivity syndrome (pages 948–956)

      Anne E. Vertigan, Sarah L. Bone and Peter G. Gibson

      Article first published online: 25 JUL 2013 | DOI: 10.1111/resp.12103

      Laryngeal sensory function is impaired in patients with chronic cough, paradoxical vocal fold movement, globus pharyngeus and muscle tension dysphonia. This study is the first to quantify sensory dysfunction and identify the extent of overlap between the conditions. It provides a hypothesis for development of further treatments for these conditions.

      The 2011 AP-AIM assessed asthma-related patient attitudes, behaviours and clinical characteristics, and identified major differences in asthma outcomes and suboptimal management across the region.

      Titration effectiveness of two autoadjustable continuous positive airway pressure devices driven by different algorithms in patients with obstructive sleep apnoea (pages 968–973)

      Mario Francesco Damiani, Vitaliano Nicola Quaranta, Ersilia Tedeschi, Riccardo Drigo, Teresa Ranieri, Pierluigi Carratù and Onofrio Resta

      Article first published online: 25 JUL 2013 | DOI: 10.1111/resp.12098

      The present study tested the effectiveness of two different A-CPAP devices to titrate CPAP pressures in patients with OSA. This work demonstrated that two different A-CPAP devices driven by different algorithms are equally effective in initial titration of CPAP.

      Severe vitamin D deficiency is associated with non-tuberculous mycobacterial lung disease: A case-control study (pages 983–988)

      Kyeongman Jeon, Su-Young Kim, Byeong-Ho Jeong, Boksoon Chang, Sung Jae Shin and Won-Jung Koh

      Article first published online: 25 JUL 2013 | DOI: 10.1111/resp.12109

      Many epidemiological studies have found evidence of an association between tuberculosis and vitamin D deficiency (VDD). However, the association between VDD and infection caused by non-tuberculous mycobacteria (NTM) has never been studied. This case-control study showed that patients with NTM lung disease have a high prevalence of severe VDD.

      Validation of SAPS3 admission score and its customization for use in Korean intensive care unit patients: A prospective multicentre study (pages 989–995)

      Article first published online: 25 JUL 2013 | DOI: 10.1111/resp.12115

      We investigated to validate the simplified acute physiology score 3 (SAPS3) and to customize it in Korean ICUs. General and Australasia SAPS3 showed poor calibration, but the prognostic power was improved by customization. Prediction models should be customized before being used to predict mortality in different regions.

      Viral and bacterial infection in acute asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease increases the risk of readmission (pages 996–1002)

      Peter A.B. Wark, Melinda Tooze, Heather Powell and Kristy Parsons

      Article first published online: 25 JUL 2013 | DOI: 10.1111/resp.12099

      A virus infection with rhinovirus A has been demonstrated to be a likely trigger of acute asthma and COPD. Virus infection, in combination with a chronic bacterial infection, is an important determinant of more severe acute exacerbations and is more likely to result in hospital readmission following severe acute exacerbation.

      MUC5AC and inflammatory mediators associated with respiratory outcomes in the British 1946 birth cohort (pages 1003–1010)

      Lauren Johnson, Imran Shah, Andrew X. Loh, Lynne E. Vinall, Ana S. Teixeira, Karine Rousseau, John W. Holloway, Rebecca Hardy and Dallas M. Swallow

      Article first published online: 25 JUL 2013 | DOI: 10.1111/resp.12092

      This longitudinal cohort study shows occurrence of the common respiratory conditions bronchitis, wheeze, asthma and hay fever to be associated with genetic variation in a mucin gene, MUC5AC. Functional variation in the epidermal growth factor receptor (epidermal growth factor receptor encoded by ERBB1) is also associated with bronchitis and modulates the MUC5AC effect.

      Safety and effectiveness of microdebrider bronchoscopy for the management of central airway obstruction (pages 1011–1015)

      Roberto F. Casal, Juan Iribarren, George Eapen, David Ost, Rodolfo Morice, Charlie Lan, Lorraine Cornwell, Francisco A. Almeida, Horiana Grosu and Carlos A. Jimenez

      Article first published online: 25 JUL 2013 | DOI: 10.1111/resp.12087

      Microdebrider bronchoscopy is a relatively new tool in interventional pulmonology. To date, there are no data on its safety and effectiveness, particularly for malignant CAO. Our study has found this modality to be highly effective and with a favourable safety profile.

      Clinical usefulness of a guideline-based screening tool for the diagnosis of allergic rhinitis in asthmatics: The Self Assessment of Allergic Rhinitis and Asthma questionnaire (pages 1016–1021)

      Masayuki Hojo, Ken Ohta, Motoyasu Iikura, Tomonori Mizutani, Junko Hirashima and Haruhito Sugiyama

      Article first published online: 25 JUL 2013 | DOI: 10.1111/resp.12116

      Allergic rhinitis is a common comorbidity in asthmatics, impairing asthma control. It is still not routinely diagnosed nor treated. GINA and ARIA Japan committees developed the guideline-based questionnaire SACRA in 2011. We demonstrated the clinical usefulness and validity of SACRA as a simple tool to diagnose and evaluate asthma/rhinitis severity.

      Respiratory muscle training extends exercise tolerance without concomitant change to peak oxygen uptake: Physiological, performance and perceptual responses derived from the same incremental exercise test (pages 1022–1027)

      A. M. Edwards

      Article first published online: 25 JUL 2013 | DOI: 10.1111/resp.12100

      Following RMT, the performance variables peak running velocity and time to volitional exhaustion are both improved in response to the same incremental exercise test while peak oxygen uptake is unaffected. This observation supports the contention that exercise tolerance is improved following RMT.

      Effects of whole body vibration training in patients with severe chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (pages 1028–1034)

      Eulogio Pleguezuelos, Maria Engracia Pérez, Lluis Guirao, Beatriz Samitier, Maria Costea, Pilar Ortega, Maria Victoria González, Virgilio Amin. Del Carmen, Laura Ovejero, Eva Moreno and Marc Miravitlles

      Article first published online: 25 JUL 2013 | DOI: 10.1111/resp.12122

      This study shows that low frequency whole body vibration training provides significant improvements in functional capacity, measured by the 6-min walking test, in severe COPD without changes in isokinetic knee flexor and extensor testing muscular force.
