How the COVID-19 infection tsunami revolutionized the work of respiratory physiotherapists: an experience from Northern Italy2020-05-20
Due to COVID-19 outbreak, to lighten the burden of acute and critical care hospitals, some respiratory rehabilitation departments have been used to host patients with COVID-19 in the post-acute phase. This new and unexpected situation required a change of roles and scheduling of the rehabilitation teams. In this manuscript we describe the unexpected and urgent organizational change of the Cardio-Pulmonary Rehabilitation (CPR) service during the COVID-19 emergency in a Northern Italian rehabilitation hospital, focusing on the Respiratory Physiotherapists’ (RPTs) role.

Ambroxol for the treatment of children with acute and chronic respiratory diseases: an overview of efficacy and safety2020-05-19
Ambroxol (2-amino-3,5-dibromo-N-[trans-4-hydroxycyclohexyl]benzylamine), an over-thecounter product, is a mucoactive agent and has been used widely to treat both acute and chronic respiratory diseases since 1978. This review aims to provide an overview of the clinical evidence available on the use of ambroxol in children with acute and chronic respiratory diseases. Data for this review were obtained from both published and unpublished clinical studies, and real-world evidence studies. Although conducted prior to the introduction of Good Clinical Practice (GCP), these studies, representing almost 1,300 pediatric patients, report strong clinical outcomes following the use of ambroxol in pediatric patients. Furthermore, ....

Evaluation of serum levels of iron, total iron binding capacity, transferrin saturation and ferritin in chronic kidney disease patients vs. control group2020-05-18
The magnitude of chronic renal disease is enormous, as the prevalence of kidney failure is rising. Anaemia is a common complication of chronic kidney disease (CKD) that develops early in its course and becomes increasingly severe as the disease progresses. The aim is to evaluate the serum level of iron, Total Iron Binding Capacity (TIBC), transferrin saturation and ferritin in chronic kidney disease population in Zaria and control subjects.Read more about Evaluation of serum levels of iron, total iron binding capacity, transferrin saturation and ferritin in chronic kidney disease patients vs. control group

As of 29 April 2020, across the globe, there are 3,216,353 confirmed Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19 disease) with 227,894 deaths. The health care infrastructure of most of the countries is overwhelmed due to the gigantic upsurge of the new cases within a short time period. Most of the beds in the regular wards and critical care units are currently occupied by either people under investigation (PUI) or COVID-19 confirmed cases. We hereby discuss the challenges faced while approaching any case of shortness of breath, or other common upper respiratory symptoms during the current COVID-19 pandemic era.Read more about COVID-19 and clinical mimics.
