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

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

Clinical Trial of Nebulized Hypertonic Saline to Attenuate Post-Traumatic Acute Lung Injury

Despite over 40 years of investigation, acute lung injury (ALI) remains a leading cause of morbidity in critically ill patients, and a disease for which there is no effective pharmacologic therapy. Our group and others have focused on the anti-inflammatory effects of intravenous hypertonic saline (HTS) acting on the injured ...

Phase

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 ...

Phase N/A

Feeding the Critically Ill During Phases of Altered Redox Status

The FEDOX trial is a prospective randomized clinical trial exploring oxidative stress as a mechanism of harm to explain the negative outcomes found in feeding trials that achieved caloric exposure commensurate with the nationally recommended guidelines. Due to its impact on energy metabolism, we will also explore low T3 syndrome's ...

Phase N/A

Preventive Strategies in Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS)

The main objective is to evaluate the effect of a protective ventilatory strategy by using lower tidal volumes compared to the use of traditionally volumes in ARDS development.

Phase N/A

An Observational Study of the Correlation Between miRNA in Peripheral Blood and Prognosis in Patients With ARDS

After consulting literature, we obtain 14 miRNAs related to ARDS and vascular endothelial cell(ARDS-VEC-miRNAs) and 2 biomarkers of scathing vascular endothelial.The ARDS-VEC-miRNAs include miR-15a-5p,miR-16-5p,miR-21-5p,miR-24-3p,miR-26a-5p,miR-27a-3p,miR-27b-3p,miR-126-3p,miR-150- 5p,miR-146a-5p,miR-155-5p,miR-221-3p,miR-223-3p,miR-320a.The biomarkers of scathing vascular endothelial include vascular cell adhesion molecule-1(VCAM-1),von Willebrand factor(vWF).20 healthy controls and 60 patients diagnose as ARDS in ICU were included in ...
