Systematic Assessment and Targeted Improvement of Services Following Yearlong Surgical Outcomes Surveys

The overarching purpose of SATISFY-SOS is to implement a rigorous process to assess short-term and intermediate-term outcomes of surgical and procedural patients who receive anesthesia services at Barnes-Jewish Hospital facilities, located in St. Louis, Missouri. Specifically, patients will be followed for major morbidity events, for mortality, and for quality of ...

Phase N/A

Implementation of Neuro Lung Protective Ventilation

Patients who experience lung injury are often placed on a ventilator to help them heal; however, if the ventilator volume settings are too high, it can cause additional lung injury. It is proven that using lower ventilator volume settings improves outcomes. In patients with acute brain injury, it is proven ...

Phase N/A

Breast Cancer Lung Late Effects

This project involves repeat chest computed tomography (CT) imaging and blood draws in subjects with breast cancer with radiation treatment to the affected breast and chest wall. The investigators are studying women receiving one of 2 types of radiation, either conventional X-rays (IMRT) or protons at the University of Florida ...

Iraq- Afghanistan War Lung Injury Using 19F MRI (DIAL1001006)

There has been mounting evidence of respiratory problems related to military service in the Middle East especially in the past two decades. An overview by Flavo et al. summarizes studies not only of soldiers but evaluation of particulates from the Middle East in a number of animal models. While there ...

Measurement of Lung Elastance and Transpulmonary Pressure Using Two Different Methods (Lungbarometry)

Classically lung elastance and transpulmonary pressure are measured from the difference in tidal variations of airway pressure subtracted by tidal variations in esophageal pressure divided by the tidal volume (Method 1). This requires the presence of a esophageal balloon catheter which is cumbersome and costly. In this study values obtained ...

Mechanical Ventilation in Severe Brain Injury: The Effect of Positive End Expiratory Pressure on Intracranial Pressure

The purpose of this study is to collect physiologic data from patients with severe brain injury who require mechanical ventilation in order to describe the impact of ventilation, specifically positive end expiratory pressure (PEEP), on intracranial pressure (ICP).

Phase N/A

RIPT Feasibility Trial

The risk of venous thromboembolism (VTE) is very high in trauma patients, secondary to tissue injury, venous status from immobilization, and thrombophilia. As such, early initiation of VTE prophylaxis is essential in this population. The competing risks of life threatening hemorrhage and VTE need to be considered very carefully. Potential ...

A New Ultrasonographic Tool to Assess Pulmonary Strain in the ICU

Mechanical ventilation is frequently used in the intensive care settings. Although essential in many cases, mechanical ventilation can be responsible for ventilator-induced lung injury (VILI). The relationship between mechanical ventilation and VILI has been clearly demonstrated in animals and is highly suspected in humans. The putative mechanism responsible for VILI ...

Phase N/A

Propylene Glycol/Glycerol Intake and Cardiorespiratory Function

Background. Propylene glycol/Glycerol intake is increasingly popular. The propylene glycol/glycerol intake effects on cardiorespiratory function are unknown. Weaning of propylene glycol/glycerol could allows a quick clearance of propylene glycol/glycerol from the body, with subsequent recovery of cardiorespiratory function. Specific aim of the research. This research proposal tests the following hypothesis ...

Phase N/A

Biomarkers Blood Pressure BIS: Risk Stratification/Management of Patients at Cardiac Risk in Major Noncardiac Surgery

Hypothesis and purpose This study is based on the hypothesis that normal preoperative cardiac biomarkers, lack of intraoperative hypotension and BIS values between 45-60 are associated with better outcomes compared with elevated biomarkers, intraoperative hypotension and/or BIS values below 45. Additionally, the investigators hypothesize that tight blood pressure management reduces ...
