Bronchoscopic lung volume reduction therapy approved for severe emphysema

April 19, 2019

Results of the National Emphysema Treatment Trial (NETT), published in New England Journal of Medicine in 2003, convincingly demonstrated improvement in lung function and symptomatic relief of patients with severe emphysema with lung volume reduction surgery (LVRS).

This benefit was evident only when LVRS was performed on selected patients with upper lobe predominant emphysema and a low baseline exercise capacity. While effective, the LVRS procedure helps only a select patient population with severe emphysema and is associated with a high cost, the potential for postoperative surgical complications and related lengthy hospital stays, and other surgical risks.

Recognition of the benefits and risks associated with LVRS prompted further evaluation and investigation of less invasive techniques to achieve lung volume reduction. Bronchoscopic lung volume reduction has emerged as a potential alternative to LVRS, and a less invasive method by which to achieve lung volume reduction in patients with

The best workout apps in 2021

The best workout apps can help you get in some exercise no matter where you are, even if it’s not inside a gym. Regardless of where and how you exercise, these apps are there to offer tips, guided routines and tracking tools.

That’s been invaluable during the past year, when gyms stayed shuttered during the coronavirus pandemic. Even with things re-opening, though, the best workout apps still serve a valuable role, no matter if you enjoy cycling on one of the best exercise bikes, running on the best treadmills, strength training with the best home gym equipment or some other form of fitness. 

The best workout apps face new competition from Apple Fitness Plus. Apple’s subscription fitness service targets the Apple Watch, but also works with other Apple devices like the iPhone to provide guided workouts. It costs $9.99 a month. We’ve found that Apple Fitness Plus gets better the

Exercise: A healthy stress reliever

Survey findings show that Americans spend much of their time engaged in sedentary activities — often more than three hours a day watching TV or going online. Many report turning to these activities to manage their stress. Yet people who engage in these activities to manage stress are less likely to say that the technique is effective, compared with those who engage in more physically active stress management strategies.

On average, adults report that they spend 3.9 hours a day watching TV, 3.7 hours a day going online and 3.4 hours a day sitting at a desk.

Forty-two percent of adults report going online to help manage stress and 40 percent say they watch TV or movies for more than two hours a day.

Only 29 percent of those who go online to manage stress and 33 percent of those who watch TV or movies to manage stress say these
