AIDS-Related Alveolar Hemorrhage: Data Collection and Follow-up

Diagnostic criteria for CMV pneumonia were the following: (1) the presence of viral inclusions in BAL or transbronchial biopsy specimens; (2) the absence of other demonstrable pathogens; and (3) a marked improvement after specific treatment. Pulmonary KS was diagnosed on tissue specimens or when the operator described compatible endobronchial lesions associated with histologically proven skin lesions. Pulmonary lymphoma was established by the histologic analysis of…

Impact of Integrative Cardiopulmonary Exercise Testing (19)

Finally, as noted, different investigations have suggested that resting LV filling pressure, as estimated from pulmonary capillary wedge pressure, may or may not be strongly associated with measured exercise capacity. However, because elevated LV end-diastolic pressures would result in increased pulmonary artery pressure during rest and exercise, right ventricular ejection fraction may have a closer relationship than LV function with exercise performance in these patients….
