Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease in over 16s: diagnosis and management
Archivos de Bronconeumologia is a scientific journal that preferentially publishes prospective original research articles whose content is based upon results dealing with several aspects of respiratory diseases such as epidemiology, pathophysiology, clinics, surgery, and basic investigation. Other types of articles such as reviews, editorials, a few special articles of interest to the society and the editorial board, scientific letters, letters to the Editor, and clinical images are also published in the Journal. It is a monthly Journal that publishes a total of 12 issues and a few supplements, which contain articles belonging to the different sections. The Journal is published monthly both in Spanish and English. Therefore, the submission of manuscripts written in either Spanish or English is welcome.
Measures of dyspnea in pulmonary rehabilitation
Nowadays, pulmonary rehabilitation PR plays an essential role in the management of symptomatic patients with COPD, by breaking the vicious circle of dyspnea—decreased activity—deconditioning—isolation. Indeed the main benefits of comprehensive PR programs for patients with COPD include a decrease in symptoms dyspnea and fatigue , improvements in exercise tolerance and HRQoL, reduction of health care utilization particularly bed-days , as well as an increase in physical activity. Several randomized studies and meta-analyses greatly established the benefits of PR, which additionally, is recommended in a number of influential guidelines. This review aimed to highlight the impact of PR on COPD patients, focusing on the clinical usefulness of PR, which provides patients a good support for change. For a long time, the treatment of COPD has focused mainly on pharmacological improvement of the airway obstruction. However over the last two decades, growing evidence of systemic manifestations in COPD patients and their negative effects on the functioning of these patients has accelerated the development and use of nonpharmacological treatments, such as pulmonary rehabilitation PR. PR and pharmacological therapy are not competitive but rather, must work closely together, if they are to result in a more successful outcome.

Occupational therapy (OT) and pulmonary rehabilitation (PR) of COPD patients
With an ever-expanding understanding about chronic obstructive pulmonary disease COPD , it has been realized that it is a respiratory disease with systemic manifestations. Systemic effects of COPD lead to cardiovascular co-morbidities, muscle wasting and osteoporosis that in turn lead to inactivity and physical deconditioning. This development has a direct impact on the health-related quality of life HRQoL of patients suffering from this respiratory disease. Pharmacological therapy leads to improvement in shortness of breath and has limited effect on the physical deconditioning.
Pulmonary tuberculosis TB is an infectious contagious disease produced by bacteria belonging to Mycobacterium tuberculosis group 1. It is a major public health problem, being one of the top 10 causes of death worldwide. An estimated 54 million lives were saved through TB diagnosis and treatment between and 17 years 2. Even if specific anti-TB treatment leads to clinical healing and the absence of Koch bacillus in sputum culture; in some patients, anatomical lung destructions can appear, with extensive fibrosis areas.
Metrics details. Dyspnea is the main symptom perceived by patients affected by chronic respiratory diseases. It derives from a complex interaction of signals arising in the central nervous system, which is connected through afferent pathway receptors to the peripheral respiratory system airways, lung, and thorax. Notwithstanding the mechanism that generates the stimulus is always the same, the sensation of dyspnea is often described with different verbal descriptors: these descriptors, or linguistic 'clusters', are clearly influenced by socio-individual factors related to the patient.

Беккер вздохнул, взвешивая свои возможности. Где ей еще быть в субботний вечер. Проклиная судьбу, он вылез из автобуса. К клубу вела узкая аллея. Как только он оказался там, его сразу же увлек за собой поток молодых людей.
