Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Serious INFLAMMATION of the LUNG in patients who required the use of PULMONARY VENTILATOR. It is usually caused by cross bacterial infections in hospitals (NOSOCOMIAL INFECTIONS).
Ventilator-induced Lung Injury
Lung damage that is caused by the adverse effects of PULMONARY VENTILATOR usage. The high frequency and tidal volumes produced by a mechanical ventilator can cause alveolar disruption and PULMONARY EDEMA.
Surgical incision of the trachea.
A species of CORONAVIRUS causing pneumonia in newborn rats but a clinically inapparent infection in adults. It is separate but antigenically related to MURINE HEPATITIS VIRUS.
Pneumonia due to aspiration or inhalation of various oily or fatty substances.
Background: Whether early percutaneous tracheotomy in patients who require prolonged mechanical ventilation can shorten mechanical ventilation duration and lower mortality remains controversial. Objec...
PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to determine whether the use of a polyurethane-cuffed endotracheal tube would result in a decrease in ventilator-associated pneumonia rate. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We...
RATIONALE: Most current information on hospital-acquired pneumonia (HAP) is extrapolated from patients with ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP). No studies evaluated HAP in the intensive care unit (...
BACKGROUND: Delivery of critical care within a certain window of opportunity is paramount in many disease states, and providing the right care to these patients at the right time in the Emergency Depa...
Pediatric patients for whom tracheotomy is a consideration have different anatomy, medical conditions, and prognoses than adults; even the tracheotomy tubes are different. Indications for pediatric tr...
Ventilator Associated Pneumonia (VAP) is a common complication experienced by mechanically ventilated patients and within the framework of Respiratory Intensive Care Units. The AnapnoGuard...
Ventilator-associated pneumonia is a serious complication in mechanically ventilated critically ill patients. The intervention tested in this project (swabbing the mouth with chlorhexidine...
This study is planned to compare, in patients sedated, intubated and mechanically ventilated, the efficacy and safety of the Lateral Trendelenburg position in comparison to the Semirecumbe...
This study seeks to assess whether coma patients really benefit from the use of antibiotics as a prophylactic for reducing the incidence of early ventilator-associated pneumonia in this po...
The study aims to assess early (one to three days after intubation) tracheostomy effectiveness in terms of reduction in ventilator associated pneumonia (VAP) incidence.
