KOL-Index: 2 A novel corona virus emerged in 2019 causing Corona Virus Disease 2019 (covid-19). In one year more than 80 000 000 cases worldwide were documented. Some patients experience symptoms, specifically shortness of breath, long after the viral infection has passed. These patients are colloquially known as "Covid-19 Long-Haulers" and it is currently unknown why symptoms remain after ...

KOL-Index: 2 There is emerging evidence suggesting that the pulmonary vasculature and right heart may play a role in the limitation of exercise capacity in healthy individuals. It is well established that aerobic training improves cardiovascular function. While the pulmonary system is integral to the function of the cardiopulmonary system, it has been traditionally accepted that lung function does not ...

KOL-Index: 2 During exercise in conditions of low oxygen (termed hypoxia), such as mountaineering at high altitudes, the lung blood vessels constrict in an attempt to protect the body from the negative effects of hypoxia. It appears that this blood vessel constriction may limit the heart to pump blood during heavy exercise, leading to reductions in exercise performance. Inhaled nitric oxide is a drug ...

KOL-Index: 2 Although asthma is a disease of the airways, research is now showing that asthmatics are more likely to develop cardiovascular disease (CVD) compared to non-asthmatics. Vascular dysfunction is seen in people at high risk of CVD and has been linked to inflammation. During an asthma attack, levels of inflammation in the whole body increase, which could potentially explain why asthmatics are at ...
