Effect of Intraoperative Fluid Restriction on Postoperative Outcomes in Video-assisted Thoracic Surgery (VATS)

Working hypothesis and aims: The aim of this study is to investigate the effect of restrictive versus standard intraoperative fluid regimen on cardiopulmonary mordibity and mortality after VATS for lung resection. Our study hypothesis is that restrictive intraoperative fluid administration in patients undergoing VATS, will lead to better outcomes compared ...

Phase N/A

Airway Pressure Release Ventilation in Acute Lung Injury

Acute respiratory failure is common in patients with acute lung injury. MV re-establishes adequate gas exchange; it allows time for administration of antibiotics, for the host's immune system to fight infections, and for natural healing. Approximately 60% of ALI patients survive to hospital discharge (1). However, conventional approaches to MV ...

Continuous Exhaled Breath Condensate pH in Mechanically Ventilated Patients

The investigators have developed a method of collecting exhaled breath condensate pH continually from ventilated patients, which (1) takes samples from an exhaust port on the outside of the ventilator circuit, and (2) possesses no measurable resistance to the ventilator circuit (and, therefore the sampling procedure in no way affects ...

A Validation/Interventional Study on Stress Index in Predicting Mechanical Stress in ARDS Patients

The study presents two parts : a preliminary validation study and a clinical study.

Noninvasive Positive Pressure Ventilation for ALI/ARDS:a Multicentre Randomized Controlled Trial

Noninvasive positive-pressure ventilation (NPPV) is increasingly being used in the care of patients suffering acute respiratory failure. High-level evidence supports the use of NPPV to treat exacerbation of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). More recently, NIV has shown to reduce the need for intubation in selected groups of patients with ...

Evaluation of Safety & Efficacy of BIO-11006 Inhalation Solution in Patients With ARDS

This is a randomized, double blind, placebo controlled, parallel-group Phase IIa pilot study of aerosolized BIO 11006 in patients with sepsis-induced acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). All patients enrolled in the study will be ventilated. To be eligible for enrollment, patients must be adults who have sepsis-induced ARDS within 48 ...

Phase

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

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 ...

Phase N/A

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

The acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) is a syndrome of severe acute lung inflammation and hypoxemic respiratory failure with an incidence of 180,000 cases annually in the U.S.Despite decades of research and recent advances in lung protective ventilator strategies, morbidity and mortality remain unacceptably high. Furthermore, no specific effective pharmacologic ...

Phase

ECCO2R - Mechanical Power Study

Although mechanical ventilation remains the cornerstone of ARDS treatment, several experimental and clinical studies have undoubtedly demonstrated that it can contribute to high mortality through the developing of ventilator induced lung injury even in patients with plateau pressure <30 cmH2O. Since now there are no studies exploring the application of ...
