Alveolar Recruitment Maneuvers Intracerebral Hemodynamic and Oxygenation

Two ARM are compared in this study: The eSigh or extended sigh with increase of PEEP for 10 minutes to maintain plateau pressure at 40 cmH2O. During ARM, the peak pressure is limited to 50 cm H2O with decrease of tidal volume (Vt) if necessary. The continuous positive airway pressure, ...

Phase N/A

Identifying PARDS Endotypes

Enrolled subjects will have nasal and bronchial brushings collected at days 1, 3, 7, and 14 of intubation with collection of serum at these same time points. Brushing RNA will be processed by microarray for gene expression analysis and compared to previously published serum biomarkers (interleukin-8, advanced glycosylation end-product specific ...

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.


Long Term Outcome on Brain and Lung of Different Oxygen Strategies in ARDS Patients

The LTO-BLOXY study will compare respiratory, cognitive and exercise function outcomes in patients who underwent one of the two oxygenation strategies in the context of the on-going LOCO-2 study: Experimental group: oxygenation will be maintained at a level between 55 and 70 mmHg of PaO2 as measured by blood gas ...


Effects of Different Driving Pressure on Lung Stress Strain and Mechanical Power in Patients With Moderate to Severe ARDS

ARDS is the most common acute respiratory failure in the ICU and the mortality rate is still as high as 40%. Mechanical ventilation(MV) is the major supportive treatment for ARDS, but inappropriate ventilator setting could lead to patients suffering from Ventilator-Induced Lung Injury(VILI). VILI is an important factor in the ...

Phase N/A

The Effects of Music Therapy on Adult Patients Requiring Mechanical Ventilation in the ICU

The study will include 178 adult patients on mechanical ventilation. These patients will be randomly assigned to the music therapy group or control group and matched for diagnosis, co-morbidities, age, and gender. The music therapy group will utilize a certified music therapist to provide live music based on the patient's ...

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 ...


Efficacy Study of Dexamethasone to Treat the Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome

The acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) is an inflammatory disease process of the lungs as a response to both direct and indirect insults, characterized clinically by severe hypoxemia, reduced lung compliance, and bilateral radiographic infiltrates. ARDS is caused by an insult to the alveolar-capillary membrane that results in increased permeability ...


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

Open Lung Strategy Gas Distribution and Right Heart Function in ARDS Patients

A recent large observational study published on JAMA showed that Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS) is associated with high mortality and developed in 10.4% of 29,144 patients admitted to the intensive care unit from 50 countries across 5 continents. Mechanical ventilation is the cornerstone for lung treatment during ARDS. Lung ...
