The Presence Of Certain Atypical Pulmonary Structures May Increase Risk Of Lung Disease

Variations in lung anatomy alone may explain why an individual is more likely than another to develop chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). This is the conclusion of a team of researchers from the Research Institute of the McGill University Health Center (RI-MUHC) and Columbia University. The researchers examined CT scans of more than 3,000 patients with and without COPD, a progressive lung disease that causes inflammation of the airways, making breathing difficult. About sixteen percent of people have an excess airway section in the lungs, and six percent have a missing section, while four percent display a combination of variants or a different configuration. The results of the study were published online January 16, in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

Allergic Rhinitis – Hay Fever | Something In The Air!

A blocked nose, sneezing, watering eyes and disturbed sleep … Every year, people allergic to pollen fear the arrival of Spring. It’s a fact that in the last 30 years allergies have increased significantly. Allergic rhinitis, or ‘Hay Fever’ is common in the UK, affecting between 10% and 30% of all adults and as many as 40% of children (Pawankar R, et al, 2013) | Forest Medical – Spirometer Calibration

Although thought to have plateaued since the late 1990s, the UK still has some of the highest rates in Europe as on average three people die as a result of asthma each day. | Forest Medical – Spirometer Calibration Read More
