Prominent publications by Nirmal B Charan

KOL-Index: 9005 . BACKGROUND: Asthma death rates are rising, with the greatest rise and highest death rates in old age. A reduced cardiovascular response in the elderly may lead to the underestimation by physicians of the severity of acute asthma attacks. This would be compounded if elderly patients had reduced awareness of bronchoconstriction. METHODS: Methacholine provoked bronchoconstriction was compared ...

KOL-Index: 8469 . The anatomy of the bronchial artery in sheep has recently been described. However, the course of the bronchial veins has not been well established. It has been suggested that the bronchial veins are the major site of fluid leakage following histamine infusion, and it has been postulated that the bronchial circulation may play a role in fluid reabsorption. We studied the anatomy of the ...

KOL-Index: 8213 . Corticosteroids are often used in the outpatient treatment of acute exacerbation of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). To date, there are few data documenting the benefit of this practice. The objective of this randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial was to assess the efficacy of corticosteroids in the outpatient treatment of COPD exacerbations. Twenty-seven patients ...

KOL-Index: 7788 . Asthma is associated with dysfunction of the beta-adrenergic receptor adenylyl cyclase signal transduction pathway. It has been argued that this results from receptor down-regulation by beta-agonist therapy. This study examined the relationship between nonspecific bronchial responsiveness (NSBR) to methacholine (Newcastle dosimeter method) and beta-adrenergic receptor density (Bmax) and ...

KOL-Index: 6997 . Independent lung ventilation using two ventilators has been attempted in the treatment of acute respiratory failure due to unilateral lung disease. However, this method has been found to be cumbersome and difficult to use. We reasoned that a bifurcated endotracheal tube with a variable resistance valve may enable us to change the inspiratory airway pressures and, hence, the inspired tidal ...

KOL-Index: 5836 . BACKGROUND: As beta adrenoceptor dysfunction occurs in both the normal elderly subject and in young asthmatic patients, the hypothesis was examined that age related beta adrenoceptor changes are important in the pathogenesis of late onset asthma in old age. METHODS: Subjects were non-smokers who comprised 17 young normal subjects of mean (SE) age 29.4 (1.3) years, 17 elderly normal ...

KOL-Index: 5645 . We postulated that if the bronchial circulation affects lung fluid balance, increases in bronchial venous pressures may influence lung lymph flow. This hypothesis was tested in eight anesthetized sheep prepared with acute lung lymph fistulas. After control data, we increased bronchial venous pressure by infusing saline directly into the bronchial vein at a controlled infusion pressure of ...

KOL-Index: 4903 . Inhaled corticosteroids are often used in the treatment of stable chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), however, studies of these agents have had mixed results. Previous trials have often excluded subjects with bronchodilator response, have failed to evaluate effect on gas exchange, and have usually looked at only post- rather than prebronchodilator forced expiratory volume (FEV). ...

KOL-Index: 4887 . We studied the effects of left pulmonary artery (LPA) ligation on the bronchial circulatory system (BCS) by using a sheep model. LPA was ligated in the newborn lambs soon after birth (n = 8), and when the sheep were approximately 3 yr of age anatomic studies revealed marked angiogenesis in BCS. Bronchial blood flow and cardiac output were studied by placing flow probes around the bronchial ...
