An Observational Cohort Study of Distribution of Ventilation in Infants and Children Requiring Mechanical Ventilation by Electrical Impedance Tomography

A. Specific Aims/Objectives Specific Aim 1: To determine regional compliance and distribution of ventilation in a cohort of children requiring mechanical ventilation. Hypothesis - Abnormal distribution of ventilation will be discovered in all patients. Specific Aim 2: To determine changes in regional distribution of ventilation over the course of mechanical ...

Phase N/A

Ultra-protective Pulmonary Ventilation Supported by Low Flow ECCO2R for Severe ARDS

Current best practices for management of severe ARDS include lung protective ventilation and nursing in the prone position. However, the best lung protective strategy is not currently established and using smaller ventilation volumes than standard lung protective ventilation suggest lung recovery is improved. Application of smaller ventilation volumes requires extracorporeal ...

Phase N/A

Effect of Intraoperative Fluid Restriction on Postoperative Outcomes in Video-assisted Thoracic Surgery (VATS)

Working hypothesis and aims: The aim of this study is to investigate the effect of restrictive versus standard intraoperative fluid regimen on cardiopulmonary mordibity and mortality after VATS for lung resection. Our study hypothesis is that restrictive intraoperative fluid administration in patients undergoing VATS, will lead to better outcomes compared ...

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 ...

Role of Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor (VEGF) in Acute Lung Injury/Adult Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS)

In previous lab experiments, we observed evidence of pulmonary edema following alveolar epithelial overexpression of VEGF, suggesting a potential role for VEGF in ARDS. In addition, we found that preventing VEGF from reaching its target receptor(s) by overexpressing a soluble form of a VEGF receptor protein prevents edema formation. These ...

Understanding the Role of Genes and Biomarkers in the Blood Clotting Process in Children With Acute Lung Injury

ALI/ARDS is a life-threatening condition that involves inflammation of the lungs and fluid accumulation in the air sacs, which leads to low blood oxygen levels and respiratory failure. Common causes include pneumonia, sepsis, and lung trauma. Symptoms, including breathing difficulty, low blood pressure, and organ failure, usually develop within 24 ...

Phase N/A

Comparison of 2 Strategies of Adjustment of Mechanical Ventilation in Patients With Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome

Most patients suffering from acute lung injury or acute respiratory distress syndrome require mechanical ventilation. In this setting, positive end-expiratory pressure is used to improve arterial oxygenation. While the beneficial effect on clinical outcome of using low tidal volume is clearly proven, the best way to titrate PEEP is not ...

Phase N/A

Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation for Severe Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome

Background: The acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) is generally a severe pulmonary disease, whose associated mortality remains high. The most severe forms of ARDS, during which the hypoxemia induced by the lung involvement is the most profound, have an even more dismal prognosis, with a mortality rate exceeding 60%, despite ...
