The Effect of External Diaphragmatic Pacemaker on the Patients With Chronic Cor Pulmonale

2016-11-30 15:45:31 | BioPortfolio


This study evaluates the effect of external diaphragmatic pacemaker on the patients with chronic cor pulmonale. Half of participants will receive external diaphragmatic pacemaker, while the other half will receive routine therapy.


Investigate the effect of external diaphragmatic pacemaker on chronic cor pulmonale, the indicators include: respiratory muscle force, diaphragmatic degree of excursion and thickness, pulmonary artery pressure, respiratory distress, feeling of fatigue and quality of life, pulmonary function,NT-proBNP,PaO2 and PaCO2.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A device designed to stimulate, by electric impulses, contraction of the heart muscles. It may be temporary (external) or permanent (internal or internal-external).

The type of DIAPHRAGMATIC HERNIA caused by TRAUMA or injury, usually to the ABDOMEN.

A congenital abnormality characterized by the elevation of the DIAPHRAGM dome. It is the result of a thinned diaphragmatic muscle and injured PHRENIC NERVE, allowing the intra-abdominal viscera to push the diaphragm upward against the LUNG.

A bone fixation technique using an external fixator (FIXATORS, EXTERNAL) for lengthening limbs, correcting pseudarthroses and other deformities, and assisting the healing of otherwise hopeless traumatic or pathological fractures and infections, such as chronic osteomyelitis. The method was devised by the Russian orthopedic surgeon Gavriil Abramovich Ilizarov (1921-1992). (From Bull Hosp Jt Dis 1992 Summer;52(1):1)

The outer part of the hearing system of the body. It includes the shell-like EAR AURICLE which collects sound, and the EXTERNAL EAR CANAL, the TYMPANIC MEMBRANE, and the EXTERNAL EAR CARTILAGES.
