CHEST 2008: Featured abstracts
Date:10/28/2008

ation could improve patient compliance with continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP). Researchers from Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, DC, retrospectively reviewed 400 patients who underwent CPAP therapy. Of the variables measured, only age and the use of sedative-hypnotics during CPAP titration polysomnography were associated with better patient compliance. In addition, those who received sedative-hypnotics for polysomnography experienced longer sleep times, greater sleep efficiencies, and improved CPAP titrations. Researchers speculate that improved short-term CPAP compliance may improve long-term compliance.

Overall, a BMI >25 appeared to blunt a person's response to asthma therapy in general; however the superiority of FSC compared to MON persisted over the entire range of BMIs.

CHEST COMPRESSIONS DIFFICULT FOR MEN AND WOMEN TO PERFORM
(Wednesday, October 29, 10:30 AM EST)

Female hospital staff members have more difficulty performing adequate chest compressions (CC) than male hospital staff. Researchers from Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York compared the CC technique of 28 male and 30 female medical housestaff using a patient simulator, before and after CC training. Subjects also went through a posttraining endurance test where they attempted to perform adequate CC for 120 seconds or until fatigue prevented further effort. Prior to training, 50 percent of the male group performed adequate CC, while none of the female group performed adequate CC. Post-training, 89 percent of
