High-flow Nasal Cannula Nebulization of Beta 2 Adrenergic Agonist During Acute Exacerbation of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

High-flow nasal cannula is an oxygenation technique increasingly used for patients admitted for acute respiratory failure. Literature essentially concerns "de novo" acute hypoxemic failure and the interest of high-flow during take care of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease patients is few studied. Physiological studies reported potential benefits of high-flow nasal cannula ...


The Effects of Nasal Airflow on Upper Airway Dilator Muscles During Sleep

All subjects underwent a standard overnight polysomnogram(PSG), including continuous genioglossal electromyography measurement , electroencephalogram, electrooculogram, electrocardiogram, nasal flow (thermister), respiratory (chest and abdominal) movements,oxy-hemoglobin saturation (pulse oximeter), and body position. Apnea event definitions and clinical classification were determined using the American Academy of Sleep Medicine(AASM) guidelines Pharyngeal electrical current sensory ...

Phase N/A

High Flow Nasal Cannula and Exercise Testing in Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)

Design: interventional, crossover, randomized. The main goal of this study is to compare the maximum speed reached in an Incremental Load Treadmill Test (ILTT) and max time tolerated in a Constant Treadmill Load Test (CTLT) while using High Flow Nasal Cannula Oxygen (HFNCO). Patients will be evaluated through two different ...

Phase N/A

Fatty Acid Metabolism in Obstructive Sleep Apnea (FAMOSA)

Obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSA) is a disease affecting 5-15% of population and 50-80% of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) and obese subjects. OSA causally contributes to the development of glucose intolerance and T2DM. The project is targeting the gap in providing effective treatment of metabolic impairments associated with OSA, ...

Phase N/A

Turbinate Cauterization in Pediatric Patients With Nasal Obstruction

To assess if inferior turbinate cautery improves nasal obstruction in children undergoing adenotonsillectomy.

Phase N/A

High Flow Nasal Cannula and Aerobic Capacity Training

Design: randomized, single blind, controlled trial. The main goal of this study is to compare the exercise tolerance in COPD patients after an 8 week pulmonary rehabilitation program using High Flow Nasal Cannula or The Venturi Mask. The exercise tolerance will be measured in seconds in a Constant Load Treadmill ...

Phase N/A

The Role of the Nose in Snoring and Sleep Apnea

Based on results from previous studies we hypothesize that the nose plays a more significant role in normal sleep respiration and in particular a larger role in sleep disordered breathing than previously recorded. The overall aim of this project is to gain insight into nasal respiration during wake and sleep, ...

Phase N/A

Hypnosis to Perform Awake Intubation

Awake intubation is a recommended safety procedure in specific cases where the intubation or ventilation before general anesthesia is at risk. Numerous techniques to allow awake intubation have been described, such as pure awake technique, local anesthetics or intravenous sedation for example. Hypnosis is used for various operating room techniques ...

Phase N/A

A Clinical Study to Evaluate the Safety and Efficacy of Surgical Material for Nasal Septoplasty

Nasal obstruction is a nasal disease commonly seen in the area of otolaryngology, and major symptoms include nasal congestion, rhinitis, and etc. Nasal septoplasty is a surgery performed to improve above symptoms of nasal obstruction and so far, many surgical technique have been studied. All surgical techniques aimed to improve ...

Phase N/A

Effect of Nasal Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) Blood Pressure and Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor in Obstructive Sleep Apnea Syndrome

Subjects and Methods: We propose to carry out a prospective, randomized sham placebo-controlled parallel study on 140 consecutive patients newly diagnosed with OSA, as defined by overnight sleep study showing apnea hypopnea index (AHI) >10 per hour of sleep plus excessive daytime sleepiness or two of the following symptoms: choking ...
