23/07/2021 Elsevier

Published monthly, the journal CHEST® features peer-reviewed, cutting-edge original research in chest medicine: Pulmonary, critical care, sleep medicine and related disciplines. Journal topics include asthma, chest infections, COPD, critical care, diffuse lung disease, education and clinical practice, pulmonology and cardiology, sleep, and thoracic oncology.

The July issue of CHEST journal includes 85 articles, clinically relevant research, reviews, case series, commentary and more. Each month, the journal also offers complementary web and multimedia activities, including visual abstracts, to expand the reach of its most interesting, timely and relevant research.

“We have a lot of excellent content included in the July issue of CHEST,” says Editor in Chief of the journal, Peter Mazzone, MD, MPH, FCCP. “I want to thank all of our contributors for their time, efforts, and extensive research that we are proud to share. This month, in particular, I want to celebrate the anniversary of our Humanities in Chest Medicine that was first launched in July 2020. It has quickly become a favorite for our readers and continues to embrace and celebrate the importance of the human element that accompanies work in pulmonary medicine.”

Included in the July 2021 issue:

Chest infections
Following a year of COVID and the rollout of vaccines, “Fast Development of High-Quality Vaccines in a Pandemic” describes how vaccines are developed at “warp speed” without compromising on the science, quality or safety.

Original research, “Hormone Replacement Therapy and Development of New Asthma,” examines the association between hormone replacement therapy in menopause and new development of asthma. A visual abstract video for this research can be viewed here.

Critical care
Focusing on those who had critical COVID, original research, “Pulmonary Function and Radiologic Features in Survivors of Critical COVID-19: A 3-Month Prospective Cohort” reveals persistent impairment was likely and concludes that pulmonary evaluation at three months after discharge is advised. A visual abstract accompanying this research can be viewed here.

Original research, “Randomized Controlled Trial of Solriamfetol for Excessive Daytime Sleepiness in Obstructive Sleep Apnea: An Analysis of Subgroups Adherent or Nonadherent to Obstructive Sleep Apnea Treatment,” finds benefits to taking solriamfetol to improve excessive daytime sleepiness scores in patients with obstructive sleep apnea. A visual abstract for this research can be viewed here.

For well over a decade, in my capacity as a researcher, broadcaster, and producer, I have relied heavily on Alphagalileo.
All of my work trips have been planned around stories that I've found on this site.
The under embargo section allows us to plan ahead and the news releases enable us to find key experts.
Going through the tailored daily updates is the best way to start the day. It's such a critical service for me and many of my colleagues.
Koula Bouloukos, Senior manager, Editorial & Production Underknown
We have used AlphaGalileo since its foundation but frankly we need it more than ever now to ensure our research news is heard across Europe, Asia and North America. As one of the UK’s leading research universities we want to continue to work with other outstanding researchers in Europe. AlphaGalileo helps us to continue to bring our research story to them and the rest of the world.
Peter Dunn, Director of Press and Media Relations at the University of Warwick
AlphaGalileo has helped us more than double our reach at SciDev.Net. The service has enabled our journalists around the world to reach the mainstream media with articles about the impact of science on people in low- and middle-income countries, leading to big increases in the number of SciDev.Net articles that have been republished.
