You must be 40 years of age or older You must have a diagnosis of COPD for at least a year You must currently be treating your COPD with a daily medication for at least 8 weeks prior to starting the study You must be a current or former smoker ...

Phase N/A

This study will be testing an investigational medication for COPD Eligibility Criteria: -Age 40 years or older -Diagnosis of COPD for at least 12 months -Current Smoker or Ex-Smoker -Other criteria may apply Other Details: Qualified volunteers will receive study medication, study supplies and any study required testing at no ...

Phase

We are looking for individuals to participate in a research study to determine the safety and efficacy of an investigational medication. Eligibility Criteria: If you are: - 40 years of age or older - are a previous or current smoker - have a diagnosis of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) ...

Phase N/A

L-citrulline for Prevention of Sequelae of Acute Lung Injury in Pediatrics Undergoing Cardiopulmonary Bypass for Heart Defects

This is a randomized, double-blind, placebo controlled, multicenter study that will compare the efficacy and safety of L-citrulline versus placebo in subjects undergoing surgery for congenital heart defects. Eligible subjects undergoing repair of a large unrestrictive ventricular septal defect (VSD), a partial or complete atrioventricular septal defect (AVSD), or an ...

Effect of Intraoperative Fluid Restriction on Postoperative Outcomes in Video-assisted Thoracic Surgery (VATS)

Working hypothesis and aims: The aim of this study is to investigate the effect of restrictive versus standard intraoperative fluid regimen on cardiopulmonary mordibity and mortality after VATS for lung resection. Our study hypothesis is that restrictive intraoperative fluid administration in patients undergoing VATS, will lead to better outcomes compared ...

Phase N/A

Respiratory Mechanics in Brain Injured Patients

We investigate the mechanical properties of the respiratory system, partitioned into its lung and chest wall components, the functional residual capacity, the gas-exchange and alveolar recruitment in brain injured patients. The measurements will be performed under sedation at different levels of PEEP. The following groups will be included: a) control ...

Airway Pressure Release Ventilation in Acute Lung Injury

Acute respiratory failure is common in patients with acute lung injury. MV re-establishes adequate gas exchange; it allows time for administration of antibiotics, for the host's immune system to fight infections, and for natural healing. Approximately 60% of ALI patients survive to hospital discharge (1). However, conventional approaches to MV ...

Airway Pressure Release Ventilation (APRV) Compared to ARDSnet Ventilation

Low volume ventilation may increase number of ventilatory free days and may improve overall patient survival. While reducing mean airway pressure has reduced barotrauma and improved patient survival, it has impaired attempts to improve alveolar recruitment. Alveolar recruitment is important as it improves V/Q mismatch, allows reduction in FIO2 earlier, ...

Intraoperative Lung-Protective Ventilation in Neurosurgery

After screened for preoperative risk classification of postoperative respiratory complications,360 patients undergoing elective neurosurgery are randomly assigned to two groups, lung-protective ventilation (L) and traditional ventilation(T).Patients are mechanical ventilated with either a tidal volume of 10-12 ml/kg ideal body weight (IBW,T) or 6-8ml/kg IBW with 6-8 cm H2O PEEP(L),both with ...

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 ...
