Using the Pediatric Acute Lung Injury Consensus Conference definition of pediatric acute respiratory distress syndrome identifies more patients with the condition than the Berlin definition.
Compared with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, nonhoneycomb hypersensitivity pneumonitis phenotypes are associated with greater improvements in percent-predicted forced vital capacity.
Cholestenoic acid may represent a unique and clinically important biomarker for acute respiratory distress syndrome.
Clinicians should incorporate chest high-resolution computed tomography when screening patients with systemic sclerosis-associated interstitial lung disease even when pulmonary function tests results are normal.
Despite recommendations made by the American Academy of Pediatrics, the use of radiography in pediatric bronchiolitis has not decreased.
Researchers investigated whether increased IL-18 levels were associated with interstitial lung disease in rheumatoid arthritis.
A recent report published in The Journal of Emergency Medicine describes the case of a male patient who experienced HCTZ-induced pulmonary edema that was complicated by ARDS.
The International Physical Activity Questionnaire long form is considered valid and consistent for measuring levels of physical activity in patients with fibrotic interstitial lung disease.

Factors predictive of escalated care in infant bronchiolitis include oxygen saturation <90%, nasal flaring/grunting, apnea, retractions, and age 2 months or younger.
Although gastroesophageal reflux disease and idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis may be related, the association between the 2 disorders is most likely confounded by smoking.
The FDA's designation was based on data from a Phase 2 placebo-controlled trial that demonstrated pamrevlumab could potentially address an unmet medical need for this condition.
Laparoscopic antireflux surgery was safe and well tolerated in patients with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis and abnormal acid gastroesophageal reflux.
