Organisation profile

Aims and objectives

The Respiratory Unit focus on characterisation and management of obstructive lung diseases, i.e. asthma, COPD and the overlap between asthma and COPD.

The main objectives are to investigate the impact of early life predictors, biomarkers and impact of lifestyle, including obesity, on incidence and long-term outcome of obstructive lung diseases.

Focus areas

Our focus areas are:

- O2Matic device to  control oxygen delivery in acute exacerbation of COPD

- Predictors of COPD and outcome of COPD in adult life

The management of asthma during pregnancy (MAP) program focusing on risk reduction

Management of severe asthma, including biological therapy and importance of non-adherence

Decision support systems for self-management and tele health for patients with COPD

Characterisation and outcome of individuals with overlap between Asthma-COPD

Management and outcome of non-cystic fibrosis bronchiectasis

Risk factors for non-reversible airflow limitation and long-term outcome in never smokers with asthma

Occupational risk factors for asthma and COPD

Early life predictors, life style and obstructive lung disease in adulthood – with special reference to the impact of childhood BMI

Pulmonary rehabilitation and physical exercising for patients with COPD

Palliative care of patients with end-stage lung disease

Leisure time activity, changes in body weight and air pollution as risk factors for incident asthma and COPD

Oxygen saturation in health and disease with special focus on domiciliary oxygen therapy 

Disciplines, methods and tools

We work in collaboration with Health2006, CCHS, EMBARC, COPSAC, CSHRR, DDCH, CGPS and international research centres.
