Safety Study of Inhaled Carbon Monoxide to Treat Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS)

The acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) is a syndrome of severe acute lung inflammation and hypoxemic respiratory failure with an incidence of 180,000 cases annually in the U.S.Despite decades of research and recent advances in lung protective ventilator strategies, morbidity and mortality remain unacceptably high. Furthermore, no specific effective pharmacologic ...


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 ...

Phase N/A

Noninvasive Positive Pressure Ventilation for ALI/ARDS:a Multicentre Randomized Controlled Trial

Noninvasive positive-pressure ventilation (NPPV) is increasingly being used in the care of patients suffering acute respiratory failure. High-level evidence supports the use of NPPV to treat exacerbation of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). More recently, NIV has shown to reduce the need for intubation in selected groups of patients with ...


Continuous Exhaled Breath Condensate pH in Mechanically Ventilated Patients

The investigators have developed a method of collecting exhaled breath condensate pH continually from ventilated patients, which (1) takes samples from an exhaust port on the outside of the ventilator circuit, and (2) possesses no measurable resistance to the ventilator circuit (and, therefore the sampling procedure in no way affects ...


A Validation/Interventional Study on Stress Index in Predicting Mechanical Stress in ARDS Patients

The study presents two parts : a preliminary validation study and a clinical study.


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

A clinical trial seeking patients for a research study for the treatment of ADULT RESPIRATORY DISTRESS SYNDROME, Acute Severe Respiratory Failure

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

A clinical trial to evaluate treatments for patients with Acute Lung Injury, Heart failure, respiratory distress syndrome of newborn, ADULT RESPIRATORY DISTRESS SYNDROME, RIGHT VENTRICULAR DYSFUNCTION, Alveolar Edema, Mechanical Ventilation Complication

A recent large observational study published on JAMA showed that acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) is associated with high mortality and developed in 10.4% of 29,144 patients admitted to the intensive care unit from 50 countries across 5 continents. Mechanical ventilation is the cornerstone for lung treatment during ARDS. Lung ...

Phase N/A

Evaluation of POC Lung Ultrasound Combined With Pressure-volume Curve to Titration Adjust PEEP for ARDS Lung Recruitment

The traditional method, set PEEP according to PVC in ARDS mechanical ventilation, lacks morphological evaluation. For point-of-care lung ultrasound(POC-LUS) is non-invasive, real-time, visualization, no need transport patients, getting more and more attention in the ARDS treatment. It has been reported that LUS-RAS is a meaningful assessment in recruitment maneuver. This ...

Phase N/A

Ultra Protective Ventilation Without Extracorporeal Circulation in Severe ARDS Patients (VT4ARDS)

Despite the use of protective ventilation, neuromuscular blocking agent and prone position, ARDS mortality remains high (30%-50%) in observational studies, and pneumothorax rate in randomized controlled trial remains stable (10%). The driving pressure (the ratio of tidal volume over respiratory system compliance) has recently been strongly associated with ARDS mortality, ...
