- Critical Care
Original research, “High-Flow Nasal Cannula Reduces Effort of Breathing But Not Consistently via Positive End-Expiratory Pressure,” suggests that positive end-expiratory pressure application is not the primary mechanism of action of high-flow nasal cannula in children with bronchiolitis. A visual abstract for the research can be viewed here.
- Pulmonary Vascular
“Association of Right Ventricular Afterload With Atrial Fibrillation Risk in Older Adults” finds higher right ventricular afterload is associated with greater atrial fibrillation risk independent of left atrium and left ventricular remodeling. A visual abstract for the research can be viewed here.
The findings of original research, “A Trial of Intranasal Corticosteroids to Treat Childhood OSA Syndrome,” do not support the use of intranasal corticosteroids in most children with OSA. A visual abstract for the research can be viewed here.
- Thoracic Oncology
A retrospective analysis, “Racial Disparities in the Surgical Treatment of Clinical Stage I Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer Among Veterans,” highlights the need to minimize racial disparities in lung cancer care to improve treatment outcomes.
