Comparison of Pressure Support and Pressure Control Ventilation in Chronic Respiratory Failure
This study is looking at whether there is a difference in outcomes using two different types of breathing support in those patients who have chronic respiratory failure (patients who under-breathe).
There is little data to demonstrate which mode of ventilation is better in terms of physiological outcomes and outcome data relating to patient symptoms.
We hypothesize that one type of breathing support: pressure support ventilation would be more comfortable for patients as it more closely matches a patient's own respiratory pattern and and so leads to improved adherence and consequent improvement in quality of life.
Patients with respiratory failure will be randomly assigned to receive either pressure support ventilation or pressure control ventilation for the first 6 weeks and then cross-over to receive the mode not previously used for a further 6 weeks. They will have baseline data recorded and then be followed up after each 6 week block.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Techniques for effecting the transition of the respiratory-failure patient from mechanical ventilation to spontaneous ventilation, while meeting the criteria that tidal volume be above a given threshold (greater than 5 ml/kg), respiratory frequency be below a given count (less than 30 breaths/min), and oxygen partial pressure be above a given threshold (PaO2 greater than 50mm Hg). Weaning studies focus on finding methods to monitor and predict the outcome of mechanical ventilator weaning as well as finding ventilatory support techniques which will facilitate successful weaning. Present methods include intermittent mandatory ventilation, intermittent positive pressure ventilation, and mandatory minute volume ventilation.
Ventilatory support system using frequencies from 60-900 cycles/min or more. Three types of systems have been distinguished on the basis of rates, volumes, and the system used. They are high frequency positive-pressure ventilation (HFPPV); HIGH-FREQUENCY JET VENTILATION; (HFJV); and high-frequency oscillation (HFO).
Application of positive pressure to the inspiratory phase when the patient has an artificial airway in place and is connected to a ventilator.
A method of mechanical ventilation in which pressure is maintained to increase the volume of gas remaining in the lungs at the end of expiration, thus reducing the shunting of blood through the lungs and improving gas exchange.
Respiratory support system used primarily with rates of about 100 to 200/min with volumes of from about one to three times predicted anatomic dead space. Used to treat respiratory failure and maintain ventilation under severe circumstances.
In this study, we want to compare two different kinds of artificial ventilation to see if one encourages faster weaning from breathing support and if one provides better sleep quality. The...
The purpose of this research study is to compare difference between breathing by oneself or with the partial help from an anesthesia machine in children under general anesthesia.
Adaptive support ventilation (ASV) is a closed loop ventilation mode that can act both as pressure support (PSV) and pressure controlled (PCV) ventilation. Weaning with ASV shows promising...
The investigators' aim is to study the effect of cycling off criteria during pressure support ventilation in COPD patients at two levels of PEEP and PSV.
The purpose of this study is to demonstrate that mechanical ventilation guided by the diaphragm EMG signal (also know as neurally adjusted ventilatory assist [NAVA]) is superior compared t...
The use of domiciliary noninvasive positive pressure ventilation (NPPV) in stable chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) with chronic hypercapnic respiratory failure has yielded variable effects...
Tidal volume and airway pressure under percutaneous transtracheal ventilation without a jet ventilator: comparison of high-flow oxygen ventilation and manual ventilation in complete and incomplete upper airway obstruction models.
Percutaneous transtracheal ventilation (PTV) can be life-saving in a cannot ventilate, cannot intubate situation. The aim of this study was to investigate the efficacy of PTV by measuring tidal volume...
Previous bench studies suggest that dynamic hyperinflation may occur if Intrapulmonary Percussive Ventilation (IPV) is superimposed to mechanical ventilation in volume controlled continuous mandatory...
