Highlights from the journal CHEST®, September 2022

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

The September issue of CHEST journal contains 40 articles, including 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.

“With September serving as pulmonary fibrosis awareness month, I recommend reading original research such as “Disparities in Rural Populations With Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis,” published in the September issue, which finds that rural participants with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis present with worse disease severity compared with their suburban counterparts,” says Editor in Chief of the journal CHEST, Peter Mazzone, MD, MPH, FCCP. “Lung diseases like pulmonary fibrosis and more in the fields of pulmonary, critical care and sleep medicine will be covered extensively at the upcoming CHEST Annual Meeting in Nashville, Oct. 16-19. The journal CHEST will publish all presented abstracts 1 week before the conference begins, and authors will speak to the research live at the meeting.”
