A Study Promoting Critical Illness Recovery in the Elderly-- Pilot

Patients will be randomized to intervention or control groups. Patients will receive therapies according to their group assignment until hospital discharge or day 28, whichever comes first. The intervention group will receive in-bed cycle ergometry within 48 hours of randomization if safety criteria are met. In-bed cycle ergometry has been ...

Phase N/A

Prevention of Ulinastatin on Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS)

Since strategies were applied in intensive care medicine, including low tidal volume ventilation, fluid resuscitation, use of antibiotics, restrictive transfusion strategy and bundle of ventilator therapy, the incidence of Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS) has been decreased recent years. However, the mortality of severe ARDS is still higher to 45%. ...

Phase N/A

ARDS Esophageal Balloon Pressure Changes With Positioning Study

The use of esophageal balloon catheters shows promise in improving outcomes of patients with severe ARDS. The estimation of pleural pressure (Ppl) has been validated in the upright position in humans with few studies commenting on the changes in supine positioning and almost none on prone positioning aside from radiographic ...

Phase N/A

A Comparison of Optimal PEEP Determination Guided by EIT and G5 Device in Moderate and Severe ARDS Patients

To titrate PEEP guided by EIT. A global inhomogeneity (GI) index and regional compliance based on EIT were developed to quantify the tidal volume distribution within the lung. The aim of this study was to test the feasibility of optimizing PEEP with respect to ventilation homogeneity using the GI index ...

Phase N/A

Long Term Follow up of Children Enrolled in the REDvent Study

Background and Significance: Through advancements in critical care, PARDS mortality has decreased from 50% to less than 20%. Therapeutic strategies for PARDS have sought to improve survival, but have often ignored morbidity, despite extensive evidence that nearly 50% of adult ARDS survivors are left with significant abnormalities in pulmonary, physical, ...

Phase N/A

Hospital-wide Incidence Clinical Characteristics and Outcomes of ARDS

We hypothesize that the hospital-wide incidence of ARDS, as defined by the Kigali modification, is similar in high resource settings (e.g., Boston and Toronto) as compared to the resource-constrained setting of Kigali, Rwanda. We also hypothesize that pulmonary ultrasound is a more sensitive and similarly specific imaging modality for bilateral ...

Phase N/A


Introduction: The Mechanical Ventilation (MV), a support method used in Intensive Care Units (ICU), reaches approximately 90% of critical patients whose withdrawal process represents 40% of the total time of their use. For this purpose Transcutaneous electrical diaphragmatic stimulation (TEDS), which by means of electrodes placed in motor action points ...

Phase N/A

Adaptive Support Ventilation in Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome

This study will compare two different modes of mechanical ventilation: standard lung protective controlled mandatory ventilation and Adaptive Support Ventilation. The investigators will enroll adult patients with ARDS who are mechanically ventilated and admitted to intensive care units, capturing a population with respiratory failure and significant critical illness. Patient mechanics ...

Phase N/A

Artificial Increase in Chest Wall Elastance as an Alternative to Prone Positioning in Moderate-to-severe ARDS.

Design: Prospective, pilot, physiological study Setting: 20-bed general ICU, 13 bed surgical ICU, 10 bed neurosurgical ICU, "A. Gemelli" University hospital, Rome, Italy. Protocol Screening visit and oxygenation criterion validation Each patient meeting inclusion criteria will be evaluated for the presence of the oxygenation criterion. After endotracheal suctioning, eligible patients ...

Phase N/A

Selective High Frequency Oscillatory Ventilation (HFOV) for Neonates

Similarities to adult and pediatric ARDS, no special pharmacologic therapy for neonatal ARDS has been shown to reduce either short-term or long-term mortality and morbidity, the risk of death therefore remains high for preterm infants. Study reported that 50% chance of death with neonatal intensive care appeared at 24 weeks ...
