Cerebral Oximetry and Perioperative Outcome in Non-Cardiac Surgery

There have been a number of studies that have examined a link between intraoperative decreases in rSO2 and adverse perioperative outcome3-7. These studies, the vast majority of which have been in the setting of cardiac surgery, suggest that decreases in rSO2 (as detected by near-infrared spectroscopy) may be related to ...

Phase N/A

Measuring Energy Expenditure in ECMO (Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation) Patients

With the perception that lung protective ventilation with regard to low tidal volume ventilation and limiting airway pressures improves outcome in ARDS (acute respiratory distress syndrome) and that the development of new technical devices of extracorporeal lung assist systems with lower complication rates support establishment of lung protective ventilation strategies ...

Phase N/A

Viral Illness in Pediatric Critical Care: Incidence Timing & Severity of Associated Heart Dysfunction & Acute Kidney Injury

This is a single-centre, prospective and retrospective, descriptive data-collection pilot study. Prospective Data Collection: All pediatric patients who are less than 18 years with a confirmed positive respiratory viral swab will be invited to participate. Retrospective Data Collection: The retrospective portion of this study will examine a 5 year period ...

Phase N/A

The Effect of Positive End Expiratory Pressure on Central Venous Pressure Among Patients With Different Lung Compliance

30 patients with mechanical ventilation and inserted central venous line will be entered. After gathering demographic data, patients undergone 5,10 and 15cmH2O PEEPs and the respective CVPs of the mentioned points will be recorded. According to the change of CVP, the patients will be divided into high response group and ...

Phase N/A

Effectiveness of NephroCheckTM Test to Predict Acute Kidney Injury Following Advanced Cardiac Replacement Therapies

Current strategies for AKI detection rely primarily on elevations in serum creatinine in conjunction with diminished urine output. Unfortunately, deviations in these crude parameters of renal function are largely insensitive and late manifestations of AKI, where acute tubular necrosis has likely already transpired and therefore well beyond the phase where ...

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

The Effect of Aspirin on REducing iNflammation in Human in Vivo Model of Acute Lung Injury

This is a double-blind, placebo-controled, randomized trial to investigate if aspirin pre-treatment has anti-inflammatory effects in a model of acute lung injury induced by inhaled endotoxin (LPS) in healthy human volunteers.


Improving the Stewardship of Diagnostic Imaging Resources in Alberta Emergency Departments

Background Imaging technology for the rapid diagnosis of medical conditions is an indispensable tool in the emergency department (ED). However, increasing and inappropriate use of costly and potentially dangerous imaging is a growing healthcare concern. The long-term health risks of radiation exposure, and the resources consumed by increased use, pose ...

Phase N/A

Effects and Safety of Infusion of Low-Doses of Methylprednisolone in Early ALI and ARDS in Children

Scientific background. Dysregulated systemic inflammation - characterized by protracted elevation of inflammatory cytokines in the circulation - is a key pathogenetic mechanism for morbidity and mortality in ALI/ARDS, and is associated with tissue insensitivity and/or resistance to inappropriately elevated endogenous glucocorticoids. In one study, prolonged methylprednisolone treatment of ARDS patients ...


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 ...
