Sleep Apnea Often Complicates Difficult Asthma
Embargoed until Sunday, May 18, 8:15 a.m. PDT

Risk Factors for Hot Tub Lung
Embargoed until Tuesday, May 20, 8:15 a.m PDT

Users of indoor hot tubs and therapy pools are at risk for a respiratory ailment, nicknamed "hot tub lung," which is caused by an allergic reaction to nontubercular mycobacteria (NTM) growing in the water. Cecile Rose, M.D., and her colleagues have analyzed risk factors associated with high NTM levels in 18 warm water therapy pools and indoor hot tubs. Pools cleaned with chlorine or bromine were associated with lower NTM concentrations than those treated with UV light and hydrogen peroxide. Pools with more frequent changes of water also had lower NTM concentrations.
