CORONA (COvid pRONe hypoxemiA): Prone Positioning for Hypoxemic COVID-19 Patients With Do-not-intubate Goals

As part of the management of COVID-19 related severe ARDS, the World Health Organization (WHO) recommends prone positioned mechanical ventilation. At this time, it is unclear whether there is a role for prone positioning (PP) of non-mechanically ventilated patients. The objective of this trial is to determine whether PP improves …

Phase N/A

Lung Protection in ARDS Using Neurally Adjusted Ventilatory Assist

Background Acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) should ventilated with a tidal volume of 4-6 ml/kg according to the ARDSnet recommendations. Due to the lack of clinical evidence of the potential role of neurally adjusted ventilatory assist (NAVA) in ARDS, investigators would like to conduct a study comparing the two modes …

Phase N/A

Predictors of Severe COVID-19 Outcomes

This is a longitudinal, multi-center, observational study collecting diverse biological measurements and clinical and epidemiological data for the purpose of enabling a greater understanding of the onset of severe outcomes, primarily acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) and/or mortality, in patients presenting to the hospital with suspicion or diagnosis of COVID-19. …

Phase N/A

Airway Pressure Release Ventilation for Moderate-to-severe Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome

Acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) is a disease that has an incidence of 5% of hospitalized mechanically ventilated patients. ARDS is associated with high morbidity and mortality in critically ill patients, with mortality reported as high as 45% in severe ARDS. Patients who develop ARDS will require mechanical ventilation. Patients …

Phase N/A

Safety and Efficacy Study of Inhaled Carbon Monoxide to Treat Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS)

Acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) is a devastating disease affecting military, veteran, and civilian populations. ARDS is a syndrome of severe acute lung inflammation and hypoxemic respiratory failure with an incidence of 180,000 cases annually in the United States. Despite recent advances in critical care management and lung protective ventilation …


RecruitmEnt Assessed by eleCtRical Impedance Tomography

Despite higher positive end-expiratory pressure (PEEP) being associated with multiple physiologic benefits, randomized clinical trials comparing higher vs. lower PEEP levels failed to show improved survival of ARDS patients. Higher PEEP should fully exploit its benefits only when implemented in patients with higher potential for alveolar recruitment (i.e., the decrease …

Phase N/A

Safety and Preliminary Efficacy of Sequential Multiple Ascending Doses of Solnatide to Treat Pulmonary Permeability Oedema in Patients With Moderate-to-severe ARDS

This phase IIb, randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind, dose escalation study will assess the local and systemic safety of 7 days orally inhaled sequential multiple ascending doses of solnatide in patients with pulmonary permeability oedema and moderate-to-severe ARDS and review potential efficacy endpoints for a future phase III pivotal trial.


Inhaled Sedation in COVID-19-related Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ISCA): an International Research Data Study in the Recent Context of Widespread Disease Resulting From the 2019 (SARS-CoV2) Coronavirus Pandemics (COVID-19)

The acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) is the most severe and lethal complication of COVID-19, and healthcare resource utilizations are currently being heavily challenged in most countries worldwide, with a high risk that some intensive care resources, such as the number of ventilators to allow management all patients, may be …

Phase N/A

Assessment of Preload Responsiveness in ARDS Patients During Prone Position

Acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) which is a major cause of morbidity and mortality in the intensive care unit, is characterized by decreased lung volume, decreased lung compliance, increased pulmonary vascular resistance and pulmonary hypertension, which ultimately lead to right ventricular dysfunction. Moreover, through biventricular interdependence and inter-ventricular septum shift, …

Phase N/A

SEvoflurane for Sedation in ARds

PRIMARY OBJECTIVE: To assess the efficacy of a sedation with inhaled sevoflurane in improving in reducing mortality and morbidity in patients with moderate-severe ARDS in comparison to a control group receiving intravenous sedation with propofol. PRIMAY HYPOTHESIS: Inhaled sedation with sevoflurane will improve a composite outcome of mortality and time …
