Journal Article
Garrett, A. T., Rehrer, N. J., Patterson, M. J., Simpson, A. J., & Cotter, J. D. (2022). Errors of measurement for blood parameters, physiological and performance measures after the decay of short-term heat acclimation. Journal of Human Performance in Extreme Environments, 17(1), Article 5. https://doi.org/10.7771/2327-2937.1140

Introduction: It is important to determine the accuracy of measurements relative to potential treatment effects, with time intervals between tests. Purpose: The aim of this study was to assess the error of measurement for blood parameters, physiologi...

Tele-rehabilitation for patients who have been hospitalised with Covid-19: a mixed-methods feasibility trial protocol (2022)
Journal Article
Hyde, L., Simpson, A. J., Nettleton, M., Shepherdson, J., Killingback, C., Marshall, P., …Green, A. (2022). Tele-rehabilitation for patients who have been hospitalised with Covid-19: a mixed-methods feasibility trial protocol. Physical Therapy Reviews, https://doi.org/10.1080/10833196.2022.2028963

Background: Tele-rehabilitation has been proposed as a post-hospitalisation rehabilitation pathway for Covid-19 survivors, however patients’ willingness and ability to engage with this online intervention remains unknown. Objectives: The aim of this... Read More about Tele-rehabilitation for patients who have been hospitalised with Covid-19: a mixed-methods feasibility trial protocol.

Medication adherence in patients with severe asthma prescribed oral corticosteroids in the U-BIOPRED cohort (2021)
Journal Article
Ahmed, H., Auffray, C., Bakke, P., Bush, A., Baribaud, F., Bates, S., …Study Group, U. (2021). Medication adherence in patients with severe asthma prescribed oral corticosteroids in the U-BIOPRED cohort. Chest, 160(1), 53-64. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.chest.2021.02.023

Background: Although estimates of suboptimal adherence to oral corticosteroids in asthma range from 30% to 50%, no ideal method for measurement exists; the impact of poor adherence in severe asthma is likely to be particularly high. Research Question... Read More about Medication adherence in patients with severe asthma prescribed oral corticosteroids in the U-BIOPRED cohort.

Triggers of Breathlessness in Inducible Laryngeal Obstruction and Asthma (2020)
Journal Article
Haines, J., Chua, S. H., Smith, J., Slinger, C., Simpson, A. J., & Fowler, S. J. (2020). Triggers of Breathlessness in Inducible Laryngeal Obstruction and Asthma. Clinical and Experimental Allergy, 50(11), 1230-1237. https://doi.org/10.1111/cea.13715

Background Inducible laryngeal obstruction (ILO) is often misdiagnosed as, or may coexist with, asthma. Identifying differences in triggering factors may assist clinicians to differentiate between the two conditions, and could give mechanistic insig...

Effectiveness of myAirCoach: A mHealth Self-Management System in Asthma (2020)
Journal Article
Khusial, R. J., Honkoop, P. J., Usmani, O., Soares, M., Simpson, A., Biddiscombe, M., …Sont, J. K. (2020). Effectiveness of myAirCoach: A mHealth Self-Management System in Asthma. The journal of allergy and clinical immunology. In practice, 8(6), 1972-1979.e8. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.jaip.2020.02.018

Background: Self-management programs have beneficial effects on asthma control, but their implementation in clinical practice is poor. Mobile health (mHealth) could play an important role in enhancing self-management. Objective: To assess the clinica...

Effect of creatine supplementation on the airways of youth elite soccer players (2019)
Journal Article
Simpson, A. J., Horne, S., Sharp, P., Sharps, R., & Kippelen, P. (2019). Effect of creatine supplementation on the airways of youth elite soccer players. Medicine and Science in Sports and Exercise, 51(8), 1582-1590. https://doi.org/10.1249/MSS.0000000000001979

Introduction Owing to its well-established ergogenic potential, creatine is a highly popular food supplement in sports. As an oral supplement, creatine is considered safe and ethical. However, no data exist on the safety of creatine on lung function... Read More about Effect of creatine supplementation on the airways of youth elite soccer players.
