Treprostinil Sodium Inhalation for Patients At High Risk for ARDS

ARDS is defined by acute hypoxemia, respiratory failure and the presence of bilateral lung infiltrates. ARDS is a syndrome of inflammation and increased permeability that may coexist with left atrial or pulmonary capillary hypertension. Several recent trials in ARDS/ALI (Acute Lung Injury) have generated interest in the use of Prostacyclin ...

Transfusion of Red Blood Cells for Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome(ARDS) in Neonates

Acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) is one of the serious complications in critically ill neonates. It can result in severe hypoxemia refractory to mechanical ventilation. There are few options for mechanical ventilation for such situations such as high frequency oscillation ventilation and extracorporeal membrane oxygenation. The aim of the present ...

Molecular Epidemiology of ARDS

BACKGROUND The acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) remains a major cause of morbidity and mortality around the world. In the United States alone there are 150,000 cases per year. Although there have been significant scientific advances in understanding the clinical and pathophysical aspects of the syndrome, there is as yet ...

Granulocyte Macrophage-Colony Stimulating Factor (GM-CSF) Inhalation to Improve Host Defense and Pulmonary Barrier Restoration

This trial evaluates efficacy and safety of inhaled molgramostim (rhGM-CSF) in 45 patients with pneumonia associated acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). A third of the patients will receive 150 mcg inhaled molgramostim, another third 450 mcg and the remaining third will receive inhaled placebo for 3 days. The patients will ...

Clinical Trial of Nebulized Hypertonic Saline to Attenuate Post-Traumatic Acute Lung Injury

Despite over 40 years of investigation, acute lung injury (ALI) remains a leading cause of morbidity in critically ill patients, and a disease for which there is no effective pharmacologic therapy. Our group and others have focused on the anti-inflammatory effects of intravenous hypertonic saline (HTS) acting on the injured ...

Preventive Strategies in Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS)

The main objective is to evaluate the effect of a protective ventilatory strategy by using lower tidal volumes compared to the use of traditionally volumes in ARDS development.

Phase N/A

Ultra-protective Pulmonary Ventilation Supported by Low Flow ECCO2R for Severe ARDS

Current best practices for management of severe ARDS include lung protective ventilation and nursing in the prone position. However, the best lung protective strategy is not currently established and using smaller ventilation volumes than standard lung protective ventilation suggest lung recovery is improved. Application of smaller ventilation volumes requires extracorporeal ...

A Role for RAGE/TXNIP/Inflammasome Axis in Alveolar Macrophage Activation During ARDS (RIAMA): a Proof-of-concept Clinical Study

BACKGROUND The receptor for advanced glycation end products (RAGE) was recently identified as a promising new marker of alveolar type I cell injury. RAGE is a member of the immunoglobulin superfamily that acts as a multiligand receptor and is involved in propagating inflammatory responses in various cell populations. While the ...

A Realworld Study of Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome in China

ARDS is a critical respiratory disease caused by endogenous and exogenous factors. The mortality of ARDS varies from 30 to 70%. In 2012, a new international diagnostic criterion has been put forward. Yet, its feasibility, reliability and validity need to be tested. Meanwhile, the correlation of different severity and prognosis ...

Assessment of the Capability of PulmoVista 500 to Continuously Monitor Changes of Ventilation Over Time

The results of this study will help to define the capability and reliability of PulmoVista 500 to detect changes in both global and regional ventilation.
