Continuous positive airway pressure and ventilation is more effective with a nasal mask than a full face mask in unconscious subjects: a randomized controlled trial.

Upper airway obstruction (UAO) is a major problem in unconscious subjects making full face mask ventilation difficult. The mechanism of UAO in unconscious subjects shares many similarities with that o...

Braden scale cumulative score versus subscale scores: are we missing opportunities for pressure ulcer prevention?

Hospital-acquired pressure ulcer incidence rates continue to rise in the United States in the acute care setting despite efforts to extinguish them, and pressure ulcers are a nursing-sensitive quality...

Pressure-relieving devices for treating heel pressure ulcers.

Pressure ulcers are areas of localised damage to the skin and underlying tissue caused by pressure or shear. Pressure redistribution devices are used as part of the treatment to reduce the pressure on...

Effectiveness of an e-learning tool for education on pressure ulcer evaluation.

To evaluate the effectiveness of information and communication technologies in the undergraduate students' pressure ulcer training as a learning tool, compared with traditional teaching methods.

Laryngeal mask airway does not reduce postoperative nasal bleeding outside the operation room after intranasal surgery.

Background. The aim of this study was to detect the effect of the laryngeal mask airway (LMA) versus the endotracheal tube (ETT) on postoperative nasal bleedings in and outside the operation room (OR)...

Laryngeal Mask Airway (LMA) for Surfactant Administration in Neonates

The primary objective of this research is to compare the need for intubation and mechanical ventilation in the first seven days of life for infants with respiratory distress syndrome (RDS)...

Randomized Clinical Trial of Nasal Turbinate Reduction to Improve Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) Outcomes for Sleep Apnea

Obstructive sleep apnea occurs in 2-4% of middle age adults and results in significant morbidity and mortality. The first line therapy is provision of continuous positive airway pressure ...

Comparison of the I-gel Laryngeal Mask and the Classic Laryngeal Mask in Patients With a BMI > 25 During Elective Surgery

The intention of this study is to compare the performance of the single-use I-gel laryngeal mask with the classic laryngeal mask in 50 patients with a BMI>25 during elective surgery. Prima...

Prevention of Bacteremia Induced by Debridement of Pressure Ulcer

The purpose of this study is to analyse bacteremia induced by debridement of pressure ulcers in patients in the complex nursing department.

Assessment of the Effectivity of Total-Face Mask for Noninvasive Ventilation During Acute Respiratory Failure

Total-face mask may improve the efficacy of NIV compared to conventional face mask in patients with acute respiratory failure due to enhanced tolerance and the allowance of higher airway p...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A type of oropharyngeal airway that provides an alternative to endotracheal intubation and standard mask anesthesia in certain patients. It is introduced into the hypopharynx to form a seal around the larynx thus permitting spontaneous or positive pressure ventilation without penetration of the larynx or esophagus. It is used in place of a facemask in routine anesthesia. The advantages over standard mask anesthesia are better airway control, minimal anesthetic gas leakage, a secure airway during patient transport to the recovery area, and minimal postoperative problems.

An ulceration caused by prolonged pressure on the SKIN and TISSUES when one stay in one position for a long period of time, such as lying in bed. The bony areas of the body are the most frequently affected sites which become ischemic (ISCHEMIA) under sustained and constant pressure.

Either one of the two small elongated rectangular bones that together form the bridge of the nose.

Fluid obtained by irrigation or washout of the nasal cavity and NASAL MUCOSA. The resulting fluid is used in cytologic and immunologic assays of the nasal mucosa such as with the NASAL PROVOCATION TEST in the diagnosis of nasal hypersensitivity.

Inhalation of oxygen aimed at restoring toward normal any pathophysiologic alterations of gas exchange in the cardiopulmonary system, as by the use of a respirator, nasal catheter, tent, chamber, or mask. (From Dorland, 27th ed & Stedman, 25th ed)
