Corticosteroid Mediates Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome

The acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) is caused by an inflammatory injury to the lung that is characterized clinically by acute hypoxemic respiratory failure. Pathologically complex changes in the lung are manifested by an early, exudative phase followed by proliferative and fibrotic phases. Persistent ARDS is characterized by ongoing inflammation, ...


PEEP Levels Selected by PEEP Titration and PEEP Levels Routinely Used in Post-operative Cardiac Patients With Hypoxemic Respiratory Failure

The acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) increases the morbidity and mortality of patients admitted to the intensive care unit (ICU). In the postoperative period of cardiac surgery, the use of intraoperative extracorporeal circulation is one of the factors triggering the syndrome, its incidence increasing. Potentially, a protective ventilatory strategy with ...

Phase N/A

Observational Cohort Study of Distribution of Ventilation in Pediatrics Requiring Mechanical Ventilation by Electrical Impedance Tomography

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 ventilation ...

Phase N/A

Variable Pressure Support Trial

In 2008 a new ventilation strategy termed variable Pressure Support ventilation (PSV) was introduced, which is able to increase the variability of the respiratory pattern independent from the inspiratory effort. In experimental lung injury, variable PSV was found to improve gas exchange and decrease the inspiratory effort, while reducing alveolar ...

Phase N/A

The Evaluation of NETs Caspase-1 and Cytokines in ARDS Patients

enrollment criteria and clinical data collection: follow the principles of medical ethics, the development of inclusion and exclusion criteria, select 90 cases of ARDS patients, in the active treatment at the same time, according to the Berlin standard severity of the disease divided into mild group, moderate Group and severe ...

PGE1 as Additive Anticoagulant in ECMO-Therapy

Prostaglandins may inhibit platelet activation via the P2Y1 ADP receptor. Platelets may contribute to thromboembolic complications and coagulation activation during ECMO therapy. Retrospective data suggest that treatment with PGE1 may serve beneficial by reducing the amount of heparin needed for inhibition of coagulation activation, and by reducing the thromboembolic risk ...


MICU Recovery Clinic

Objectives To evaluate physical function, cognitive function, and overall functional status during recovery from critical illness. To evaluate anxiety, depression, and PTSD during recovery from critical illness. To evaluate resilience during recovery from critical illness. To evaluate healthcare utilization rates, morbidity, and mortality following critical illness. Added April 2016: To ...

Phase N/A

Positive End-expiratory Pressure and Esophageal Catheter Optimal Calibration Volume in ARDS Patients

The use of esophageal balloon catheter to estimate pleural pressure has gained renewed popularity in recent years. Indeed, measurement of transpulmonary pressure may allow a more pathophysiological-based approach to ventilator strategy in acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) patients. Nevertheless, it is well known that esophageal balloon catheter derived parameters can ...

Phase N/A

Does Automated Closed-Loop Ventilation Reduce the DRiving Pressure Levels in Patients With ARDS

Objective: The objective of this crossover study and randomized controlled trial (RCT) is to compare P levels during INTELLiVENT- adaptive support ventilation (ASV) with conventional lung protective ventilation in the acute and sub-acute phase of moderate or severe ARDS. Study design: Single center crossover study (in the acute phase) and ...

Phase N/A

Screening Expiratory Flow Limitation by Flow-time Curve

Expiratory flow limitation (EFL) is defined as a dynamic condition that expiratory flow cannot be further increased with higher expiratory driving pressure. Under mechanical ventilation, it can cause intrinsic positive end-expiratory pressure (PEEP) and dynamic hyperinflation, and be associated with worse clinical outcome. The detection of EFL however needs special ...
