Major increase in CF population predicted

In 2015, Pierre-Régis Burgel and colleagues presented a study in the European Respiratory Journal (ERJ) that predicted a 50% increase in cystic fibrosis patients by 2025 in Western Europe. This corresponded to 20% increase in children and a 75% increase in adults. In a follow-up report recently published in the August issue of the ERJ, the authors suggest that this increase may be even higher. Read the latest study here or visit erj.ersjournals.com to access the online ERJ.

Oxygen administration: automatic versus manual

Oxygen is administered every day to a high number of patients in emergency care. However, precise control of the flow of oxygen is difficult and can be time-consuming. A multicentre study published in the July issue of the European Respiratory Journal has found that automated oxygen titration is superior to manual administration – it improves oxygen parameters, adherence to guidelines and has clinical benefits.
