A Clinical Study on Levosimendan Improvement of Prognosis of ARDS Patients by Optimizing Pulmonary Hemodynamics


Brief description of study

The purpose of this study was to evaluate the curative effect of Levosimendan on ARDS patients through omni-directional and multi-angle objective quantitative indexes, and to study the responsiveness of ARDS with or without right ventricular insufficiency to the treatment of Levosimendan, and to indirectly confirm whether Levosimendan had lung protective mechanism other than calcium sensitization to ARDS patients, such as inhibiting inflammatory reaction to reduce pulmonary capillary leakage and alveolar epithelial cell injury. Relaxation of bronchial smooth muscle improves pulmonary ventilation function. To provide new methods and ideas for clinical treatment of ARDS.

Detailed Study Description

On the basis of the above research, the investigators speculate that Levosimendan can improve cardiac function, enhance diaphragm contractility and decrease pulmonary artery through this sensitizing effect, and protect ARDS lung function by regulating the release and oxidation of inflammatory mediators and nitroso oxidative stress. The hemodynamic and pulmonary protective effects of ARDS patients were improved by regulating K-ATP channels, relieving blood vessels and bronchospasm and improving ventilation and diffusion function in ARDS patients, so as to further improve the survival rate of these patients and shorten the mechanical ventilation time and ICU stay time. The purpose of this study was to observe the effect of Levosimendan on pulmonary circulation and right ventricular function in patients with ARDS, to determine whether it can reduce the fatality rate of ARDS and shorten its ICU residence time, and to evaluate the evaluation of ARDS with or without right ventricular insufficiency and to provide a new idea and method for drug treatment of ARDS.
