Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Disease
  • Surgery

Heather J. Zar mainly focuses on Tuberculosis, Internal medicine, Pediatrics, Immunology and Sputum. Her studies deal with areas such as Radiology, Mediastinal lymphadenopathy, Surgery and Intensive care medicine as well as Tuberculosis. The various areas that Heather J. Zar examines in her Internal medicine study include Blood culture and Pathology.

The concepts of her Pediatrics study are interwoven with issues in Epidemiology, Incidence, Meta-analysis, Disease and Asthma. Her Asthma study combines topics in areas such as Family medicine, Public health, Disease management and Allergy. Her work deals with themes such as Nasopharyngeal aspirate and Pulmonary tuberculosis, which intersect with Sputum.

Her most cited work include:

  • Global strategy for asthma management and prevention: GINA executive summary. (2231 citations)
  • Global, regional, and national disease burden estimates of acute lower respiratory infections due to respiratory syncytial virus in young children in 2015: a systematic review and modelling study. (727 citations)
  • Diverse Pseudomonas aeruginosa gene products stimulate respiratory epithelial cells to produce interleukin-8. (402 citations)

What are the main themes of her work throughout her whole career to date?

Her primary areas of investigation include Pediatrics, Internal medicine, Tuberculosis, Intensive care medicine and Pneumonia. Her work carried out in the field of Pediatrics brings together such families of science as Epidemiology, Incidence, Antiretroviral therapy, Lung function and Cohort. Her Internal medicine study incorporates themes from Gastroenterology, Sputum and Surgery.

Her Tuberculosis research includes elements of Nasopharyngeal aspirate, Prospective cohort study and Drug resistance. Her studies in Intensive care medicine integrate themes in fields like Disease and Asthma. The Asthma study which covers Environmental health that intersects with Public health.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Pediatrics (32.08%)
  • Internal medicine (23.56%)
  • Tuberculosis (21.19%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2019-2021)?

  • Pediatrics (32.08%)
  • Environmental health (9.31%)
  • Internal medicine (23.56%)

In recent papers she was focusing on the following fields of study:

Her primary areas of investigation include Pediatrics, Environmental health, Internal medicine, Epidemiology and Tuberculosis. Her Pediatrics research includes themes of Respiratory tract infections, Incidence, Bronchiectasis, Interstitial lung disease and Cohort. Her Environmental health research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Mortality rate, Public health, Developing country, Pandemic and Risk factor.

The Epidemiology study combines topics in areas such as Socioeconomic status, Malnutrition and Community-acquired pneumonia, Pneumonia. Her work is connected to Mycobacterium tuberculosis, Lipoarabinomannan and Sputum, as a part of Tuberculosis. Her work in Disease addresses issues such as Family medicine, which are connected to fields such as Asthma.

Between 2019 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Prevalence and attributable health burden of chronic respiratory diseases, 1990–2017: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2017 (78 citations)
  • Prevalence and attributable health burden of chronic respiratory diseases, 1990–2017: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2017 (78 citations)
  • Global burden of respiratory infections associated with seasonal influenza in children under 5 years in 2018: A systematic review and modelling study (48 citations)

In her most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Internal medicine
  • Disease
  • Pathology

Her primary areas of study are Environmental health, Global health, Pediatrics, Mortality rate and Pandemic. The study incorporates disciplines such as Poverty, Public health and Tropical disease in addition to Environmental health. Heather J. Zar works mostly in the field of Global health, limiting it down to concerns involving Developing country and, occasionally, Viral pneumonia, Hygiene and Pneumonia.

Her Pediatrics research integrates issues from Respiratory tract infections, Incidence, Quality of life and Antiretroviral therapy. Her Mortality rate study deals with Risk factor intersecting with Verbal autopsy, Disability-adjusted life year, COPD and Respiratory disease. Her Tuberculosis research focuses on Sputum in particular.
