My Name is Lacey, I am a senior Respiratory student at Polk State College in Lakeland Flordia and as my senior case study project i am interested in presenting on PAP. I have come across a couple questions that i cant seem to find to answer to on google and was wondering if i could get some extra assistance through here.
I have read in many articles that PAP is commonly misdiagnosed and I am in search of a statistic of how often and what it is usually miss diagnosed as. I have read that it is commonly misdiagnosed as pneumonia and ARDS and was curious if there is one that prevails over the other?
I have also hit an issue regarding the GM-CSF treatment, some of the pages I have read call it "GM-CSF" while others have called it "RHGM-CSF" but I cant find anywhere that talks about the significance difference between them and some places call it by both names. are these technically the same thing?
any information, assistance or links anyone can provide would be greatly appreciated.
