Inflammation and Distribution of Pulmonary Ventilation Before and After Tracheal Intubation in ARDS Patients

We will conduct a prospective clinical protocol in patients admitted to the ICU of the Hospital Clnico UC-Christus, Santiago de Chile, with diagnosis of acute hypoxemic respiratory failure, but who are still ventilating spontaneously. Clinical data: After hospital admission, patients who meet inclusion/exclusion criteria will be asked to consent to ...

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 ...

Measuring Heart and Lung Function in Critical Care

This is a feasibility study of the use of a novel technique called 'Inspiwave' to measure heart and lung function in adult patients in critical care. The preliminary work has already been undertaken in animal models and in healthy volunteers. The ultimate aim of this study is to develop a ...

Effect of Randomization to Neuromuscular Blockade on Physical Functional Impairment and Recovery in ARDS

The investigators will assess this dysfunction in different ways, appropriate for patients' stage of critical illness and anticipated recovery. During critical illness, the investigators will use nerve conduction studies (NCS) to assess nerve and muscle function, identifying presence of early neuromyopathy (primary outcome, Aim 1). Additional early assessments will include ...

An Observational Study of the Correlation Between miRNA in Peripheral Blood and Prognosis in Patients With ARDS

After consulting literature, we obtain 14 miRNAs related to ARDS and vascular endothelial cell(ARDS-VEC-miRNAs) and 2 biomarkers of scathing vascular endothelial.The ARDS-VEC-miRNAs include miR-15a-5p,miR-16-5p,miR-21-5p,miR-24-3p,miR-26a-5p,miR-27a-3p,miR-27b-3p,miR-126-3p,miR-150- 5p,miR-146a-5p,miR-155-5p,miR-221-3p,miR-223-3p,miR-320a.The biomarkers of scathing vascular endothelial include vascular cell adhesion molecule-1(VCAM-1),von Willebrand factor(vWF).20 healthy controls and 60 patients diagnose as ARDS in ICU were included in ...

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 ...

Electrical Impedance Tomography for Quantification of Pulmonary Edema in Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome Patients

Evaluation of pulmonary edema is a key factor in monitoring and guidance of therapy in acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) patients. To date, methods available at the bedside for estimating the physiologic correlate of pulmonary edema, extravascular lung water(EVLW), often are unreliable or require invasive measurements. The purpose of 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 ...

Phase N/A

Detection of Right Ventricular Dysfunction by 2D Strain During Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrom (ARDS)

Acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) and mechanical ventilation can lead to right ventricular dysfunction and ultimately right ventricular failure by increasing pulmonary vascular resistances and pressure load. This can be prevented by modifying ventilator settings, using vasopressors or inotropes or even by prone positionning.But to do so, right ventricular dysfonction ...

Phase N/A

Blood Recirculation and vvECMO

A prospective, observational study will be performed measuring recirculation of blood through a veno-venous Extracoporeal Membrane Oxygenation (vvECMO) in patients with acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) on vvECMO. ECMO blood flow will be adjusted with respect to recirculation.
