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 ...

Phase N/A

Re-Evaluation of Systemic Early Neuromuscular Blockade and Transthoracic Ultrasound Assessment of the Diaphragm

A growing body of evidence strongly suggests that mechanical ventilation injures the respiratory muscles, particularly the diaphragm. Due to the deleterious effects of diaphragm inactivity on diaphragm function, there are important concerns about the risk of diaphragm weakness and difficult liberation from mechanical ventilation following neuromuscular blockade. Sonographic measurements of ...

Phase N/A

Acute Kidney Injury in Patients Undergoing Contrast Exposure: VQ vs. CT

Before the study begins, research personnel will do the following to be sure that patients can be in the study: research personnel will talk to the treating physician. research personnel will review the patient medical records, blood and urine tests already done for as usual medical care, and chest X-ray. ...

Phase N/A

Biomarkers of Lung Injury in Hyperinflation in the Mechanical Ventilator Versus Manual Hyperinflation

This study aims to evaluate the biomarkers of lung injury in the hyperinflation maneuver with mechanical ventilator versus manual hyperinflation with ambu in septic patients under mechanical ventilation through changes in the cellular levels of interleukin 8 (IL-8) and receptor for advanced glycation end products (RAGE). As specific objectives, compare ...

Phase N/A

The Assessment of Volume Status by BIA and Lung Ultrasound in Septic AKI Patients Undergoing CRRT

Acute kidney injury(AKI) is one of the most common complications that occur up to 35% of critically ill patients. Septic AKI accounts for one third of them. Patients with septic AKI are widely treated with Continuous renal replacement therapy (CRRT). However, previous studies have hardly documented improvement of mortality in ...

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

Effectiveness of the Geriatric Activation Program Pellenberg (GAPP) on the Geriatric Rehabilitation Ward

The aim of this study is to investigate the effectiveness of our developed week-treatment program GAPP (Geriatric Activation Program Pellenberg), on strength, balance, speed, functionality and cognition, with the main goal to achieve a better independence for ADL. Each day of the week an exercise program of 45 minutes is ...

Phase N/A

Intraop Ventilation Management and Postop Pulmonary Complications in High Risk Patients for OSA

LPV was first introduced in the intensive care units but has been recently adopted in the operating rooms. Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a widely prevalent condition in obese patients and requires special attention in the operating room. Screening for OSA risk in surgical patients is a common practice. The ...

Phase N/A

Effect of Alcohol and Drugs of Abuse on Immune Function in Critically Ill Patients With Respiratory Failure

This study plans to learn more about people who are sick in the hospital with a lung infection, or respiratory failure. Respiratory failure, or severe lung failure, is a life-threatening disease. When it happens, the lungs have trouble carrying out their normal function of getting oxygen into the blood, and ...

Phase N/A

Acute Kidney Injury Genomics and Biomarkers in TAVR Study

This study enrolls patients who have aortic stenosis who undergo TAVR at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center University Hospital. Development of post-TAVR AKI defined according to the Kidney Disease: Improving Global Outcomes (KDIGO) SCr based and urine output based criteria will be ascertained. Patients will be followed during ...
