Newswise: Germ-free lungs of newborn mice are partially protected against hyperoxia

Germ-free lungs of newborn mice are partially protected against hyperoxia

University of Alabama at Birmingham

A novel newborn mouse model probes the effect of high oxygen concentration, or hyperoxia, on lung development of pups that are germ-free — with no microbes in their lungs. The model will show how different types of microbes that colonize human lungs at birth protect or make an infant more susceptible to life-threatening bronchopulmonary dysplasia.

Newswise: Advanced Lung Cancer Screening Available at Atlantic Health System

Advanced Lung Cancer Screening Available at Atlantic Health System

Atlantic Health System

The Atlantic Health System lung cancer test uses low-dose computed tomography (LDCT) that only takes a few minutes to complete and may identify lung cancer at earlier, more curable stages. When compared to chest X-rays used in early detection, the LDCT screening reduces lung cancer deaths in high-risk individuals by 20 percent. The screening test is covered by Medicare and most commercial insurance. Approximately 2% of screenings show early findings of lung cancer.

Newswise: VUMC Offering New Minimally Invasive Emphysema Therapy

VUMC Offering New Minimally Invasive Emphysema Therapy

Vanderbilt University Medical Center

The procedure, called Endobronchial Lung Volume Reduction (ELVR), is for patients with emphysema who have hyperinflated lungs. These patients can inhale but have difficulty exhaling because air trapped in their lungs causes them to become hyperinflated. Until now, such patients were typically treated with inhalers, lung surgery to reduce volume or lung transplants.

On November 21, people from across the country will participate in this year’s Great American Smokeout, “Day 1” of their journey toward a smoke-free life. Deciding to quit is a major step forward, but research shows that it may take current smokers an average of 30 attempts before they successfully quit smoking for a year or more. To remain committed to the quit in the weeks and months following GASO, use the power of Mondays to stay on track.

A Scent-sitive Subject – Essential Oil Diffusers and Your Cat

Texas A&M University

Essential oils are often presented as a naturalistic approach to personal care and home fragrance. However, just because these oils are derived from plants doesn’t make them healthy, or even safe, for your cat.
