Inflammation and Distribution of Pulmonary Ventilation Before and After Tracheal Intubation in ARDS Patients

We will conduct a prospective clinical protocol in patients admitted to the ICU of the Hospital Clnico UC-Christus, Santiago de Chile, with diagnosis of acute hypoxemic respiratory failure, but who are still ventilating spontaneously. Clinical data: After hospital admission, patients who meet inclusion/exclusion criteria will be asked to consent to ...

Phase N/A

Sigh Ventilation to Increase Ventilator-Free Days in Victims of Trauma at Risk for Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome

Patients in intensive care units (ICUs) as a result of injuries resulting from penetrating or non-penetrating trauma who are intubated and receiving invasive mechanical ventilation will be randomized to either usual care or usual care with the addition of sigh breaths given once every 6 minutes. Patients will be randomized ...

Phase N/A

Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSCs) for Treatment of Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARD) in Patients With Malignancies

The MSCs: MSCs are a type of stem cell that can be removed from bone marrow and grown into many different cell types that can be used to treat cancer and other diseases. The MSCs used in this study were collected from healthy donors and are stored and grown in ...

Phase

A Comparison of Optimal PEEP Determination Guided by EIT and Conventional Protective Ventilation Tool in ARDS Patients

Acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS)over the years in the treatment policy has been confirmed that: with low tidal volume to achieve lung protection strategy and high positive end-expiratory pressure (PEEP), both can effectively reduce the mortality rate. And increase PEEPthe alveolar pressure is greater than the atmospheric pressure when exhaledSo ...

Phase N/A

Pediatric Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome Ventilation Bundle

We implement a PARDS ventilation bundle compliant with PALICC recommendations. The bundle contains a daily checklist for ventilation targets and reference tables listing targeted tidal volumes and end expiratory pressure-fraction of inspired oxygen titration. We will recruit mechanically ventilated patients who meet PARDS criteria. After a one-month implementation period, we ...

Treprostinil Sodium Inhalation for Patients At High Risk for ARDS

ARDS is defined by acute hypoxemia, respiratory failure and the presence of bilateral lung infiltrates. ARDS is a syndrome of inflammation and increased permeability that may coexist with left atrial or pulmonary capillary hypertension. Several recent trials in ARDS/ALI (Acute Lung Injury) have generated interest in the use of Prostacyclin ...

Phase

N-Acetyl-cysteine in Early Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome

Objectives / Research Aims The overall objectives of this study are to demonstrate whether a protocol for the early use of inhaled N-acetylcysteine improves mortality, ventilator days, ICU days, hospital stay, as well as the need for other "rescue" modalities, such as use of advanced ventilator modalities (such as airway ...

Phase N/A

Transfusion of Red Blood Cells for Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome(ARDS) in Neonates

Acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) is one of the serious complications in critically ill neonates. It can result in severe hypoxemia refractory to mechanical ventilation. There are few options for mechanical ventilation for such situations such as high frequency oscillation ventilation and extracorporeal membrane oxygenation. The aim of the present ...

Phase N/A

Molecular Epidemiology of ARDS

BACKGROUND The acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) remains a major cause of morbidity and mortality around the world. In the United States alone there are 150,000 cases per year. Although there have been significant scientific advances in understanding the clinical and pathophysical aspects of the syndrome, there is as yet ...

A Study Promoting Critical Illness Recovery in the Elderly-- Pilot

Patients will be randomized to intervention or control groups. Patients will receive therapies according to their group assignment until hospital discharge or day 28, whichever comes first. The intervention group will receive in-bed cycle ergometry within 48 hours of randomization if safety criteria are met. In-bed cycle ergometry has been ...
