Adolescent substance abuse is a serious and growing problem worldwide. The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of core stabilization exercises on pulmonary function, respiratory muscle strength, and functional capacity in adolescents with substance use disorder (SUD).
This was a prospective randomized controlled trial. A total of 49 adolescent male patients with...
Primary ciliary dyskinesia (PCD) is generally likened to cystic fibrosis (CF) due to similarities in impaired mucociliary clearance and some other symptoms. The aim of our study was to investigate pulmonary and extrapulmonary characteristics of children with CF and PCD since no studies have addressed respiratory muscle strength in children with PCD and to compare the results to those obtained...
To characterize the clinical presentation of sleep‐disordered breathing and respiratory patterns at rest and during a 6‐min walk test (6MWT) in children with rapid‐onset obesity, hypothalamic dysfunction, hypoventilation, and autonomic dysregulation (ROHHAD) syndrome.
Retrospective study of children with ROHHAD who had a diagnostic baseline polysomnography, daytime cardiorespiratory...
Although prolonged respiratory symptoms following severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS‐CoV‐2) infection have been described in adults, data are emerging that children also experience long‐term sequelae of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID‐19). The respiratory sequelae of COVID‐19 in children remain poorly characterized. In this study we describe health data and respiratory...
Mucopolysaccharidoses (MPSs) are a group of rare diseases caused by an intralysosomal accumulation of glycosaminoglycans, resulting in a multisystemic clinical condition characterized by variable degrees of physical‐functional impairment.
To evaluate the functional capacity (FC) of MPS patients and compare with a healthy control group.
This is a cross‐sectional...
Patients with congenital central hypoventilation syndrome (CCHS) can develop hypoxemia and hypercapnia during exercise. However, there is limited literature on cardiorespiratory responses during submaximal exercise and their correlation with paired‐like homeobox 2B (PHOX2B) genotype.
To assess oxygen saturation (SpO2), end‐tidal carbon dioxide (ETCO2), heart rate (HR), and...
Video game‐based systems have been proposed to improve effectiveness and compliance with exercise training in children and adolescents with noncystic fibrosis bronchiectasis (NCFB). This study aimed to investigate the effects of aerobic and breathing video game‐based exercises (VGE) on pulmonary function, respiratory and peripheral muscle strength, functional capacity, and balance in children...
