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

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 ...

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 ...

Phase N/A

WorldwidE AssessmeNt of Separation of pAtients From Ventilatory assistancE

The purpose of this study is to describe, in a large population of ICU patients the burden of, management and spectrum of approaches to weaning from ventilation, in patients that require invasive mechanical ventilation for any reason, for a time period of at least 24 hours. It will answer the ...

Phase N/A

Incidence of Dyssynchronies in Early ARDS

Measurements Physiological measurements Airway pressure, esophageal pressure, electrical activity of the diaphragm and flow Flow and airway pressure signal will be recorded from the ventilators by connecting the ventilator to a laptop computer if possible. Recording these data simultaneously with esophageal pressure or electrical activity of the diaphragm (see later ...

Phase N/A

Abnormalities in Lung Computed Tomography and Physiological Alterations in Patients With Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome

Acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) involves respiratory failure from different causes, but with a common pathologic manifestation in the form of inflammatory pulmonary edema. Histopathological examination of tissue obtained from patients with ARDS suggests that the pathology is heterogeneous and involves 3 phases: exudative, inflammatory, and fibroproliferative. Such alterations are ...

Phase N/A

Prone Position Impact in ARDS Patients on the Incidence of Central Venous Catheter Colonization

Catheter-associated infection prevention is achieved by identification of the population at risk. Patients receiving prone position Under acute respiratory distress syndrome appear to be particularly vulnerable. This retrospective study is designed to compare the risk of catheter colonization that could be induced or worsened by prone position. Knowing that, prone ...

Phase N/A

Continuous Regional Analysis Device for Neonate Lung

EIT data will be recorded during 72 hours of routine clinical treatment. To prevent any decisions based on EIT information, the clinicians will be blinded to the EIT findings during the study period. Data on clinical interventions and clinical findings will be recorded using a specially adapted graphical user interface ...

Phase N/A

Measuring Heart and Lung Function in Critical Care

This is a feasibility study of the use of a novel technique called 'Inspiwave' to measure heart and lung function in adult patients in critical care. The preliminary work has already been undertaken in animal models and in healthy volunteers. The ultimate aim of this study is to develop a ...

Phase N/A

Effect of Randomization to Neuromuscular Blockade on Physical Functional Impairment and Recovery in ARDS

The investigators will assess this dysfunction in different ways, appropriate for patients' stage of critical illness and anticipated recovery. During critical illness, the investigators will use nerve conduction studies (NCS) to assess nerve and muscle function, identifying presence of early neuromyopathy (primary outcome, Aim 1). Additional early assessments will include ...
