Published monthly, the journal CHEST®, published by Elsevier, 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, humanities, pulmonary vascular disease, sleep and thoracic oncology.

The September issue of the journal CHEST features 79 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.

“Among our lineup of diverse content, this month’s issue contains several manuscripts covering the effects of tobacco use,” says Editor-in-Chief of the journal, Peter J. Mazzone, MD, MPH, FCCP. “This original research serves as a reminder of the innumerous ways smoking can impact a patient’s life and underscores the need for cessation efforts.”

Included in the September 2021 issue:

  • Diffuse Lung Disease
    Original research, “Tobacco Smoking and Risk for Pulmonary Fibrosis,” finds that the intensity of smoking presents a dose-response association with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, strengthening the hypothesis for a potentially causal association.
  • Critical Care
    Findings from “Symptoms of Mental Health Disorders in Critical Care Physicians Facing the Second COVID-19 Wave” lead to a suggestion that hospital management urgently needs to provide psychological support, peer-support groups and a communication structure that ensures the well-being of health care workers. An accompanying visual abstract can be found here.
