Steroids for upper airway edema

In rare extreme cases, where fetus's heart is in danger, fetal surgery can be performed to remove the CPAM. If non-immune hydrops fetalis develop, there is a near universal mortality of the fetus without intervention. Fetal surgery can improve the chances of survival to 50-60%. Recently, several studies found that a single course of prenatal steroids (betamethasone) may increase survival in hydropic fetuses with microcystic CPAMs to 75-100%. [6] [7] These studies indicate that large microcystic lesions may be treated prenatally without surgical intervention. Large macrocyst lesions may require in utero placement of a Harrison thoracoamniotic shunt.

FCAAIA Notes: Weight loss and good physical conditioning are so important in virtually every aspect of health that we should not just concentrate on asthma. It is pretty clear that obesity contributes to diminished respiratory status with more shortness of breath and so on.  My interpretation of the data are that at least some of that is because of other factors such as increased incidence of GE reflux, increased “work of breathing” because of the very thick and stiff chest wall, and overall de-conditioning resulting in worse exercise tolerance.

Although not a form of breathing, the Valsalva maneuver involves the respiratory muscles. It is, in fact, a very forceful exhalatory effort against a tightly closed glottis , so that no air can escape from the lungs. [16] Instead abdominal contents are evacuated in the opposite direction, through orifices in the pelvic floor. The abdominal muscles contract very powerfully, causing the pressure inside the abdomen and thorax to rise to extremely high levels. The Valsalva maneuver can be carried out voluntarily, but is more generally a reflex elicited when attempting to empty the abdomen during, for instance, difficult defecation, or during childbirth. Breathing ceases during this maneuver.

Oxygen therapy is frequently provided along with pharmacological interventions to treat underlying hypoxemia in COPD patients. By reducing hypoxia in the alveoli, pulmonary vasoconstriction is reduced. Reducing pulmonary hypertension lowers right heart afterload, and improves right heart systolic function. Oxygen also reduces hypoxemia in the blood, which reduces the risk of developing polycythemia. However, oxygen therapy has only been shown to reduce mortality in those with severe hypoxemia (PaO2 < 55mmHg); otherwise there is no mortality benefit.
