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.
Allocation: Randomized, Control: Active Control, Intervention Model: Crossover Assignment, Masking: Single Blind (Subject), Primary Purpose: Treatment

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...
Trial to Study Intubation Rates of Non-invasive Ventilation Using Pressure Support Ventilation (PSV) Versus Adaptive Support Ventilation (ASV) Mode in Patients With Acute Exacerbation of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease
The clinical course of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is associated with recurrent episodes of exacerbation that results in respiratory failure. The treatment of respiratory ...
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 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.
The objective is to assess the impact of a wearable Noninvasive Positive Pressure Ventilation, on physical activity and quality of life in patients with severe COPD, complaining of dyspnea...
Congenital central hypoventilation syndrome (CCHS) is characterized by ventilatory insensitivity to hypercapnia and hypoxemia during sleep and/or wakefulness. Management of CCHS includes a long-term v...
The i-gel provides good airway sealing but gastric insufflation may occur when peak inspiratory pressure (PIP) exceeds the sealing pressure of the i-gel without a gastric tube. Pressure-controlled ven...
Volume-targeted noninvasive ventilation (VT-NIV), a hybrid mode that delivers a preset target tidal volume (VT) through the automated adjustment of pressure support, could guarantee a relatively const...
Prevalence studies have shown heterogeneous use of home mechanical ventilation (HMV) in different conditions, but a marked increase in uptake especially in users of non-invasive ventilation (NIV). Whi...
Airway pressure release ventilation (APRV) utilizes high levels of airway pressure coupled with brief expiratory release to facilitate open lung ventilation. The aim of our study was to evaluate the e...
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.
Mechanical ventilation delivered to match the patient's efforts in breathing as detected by the interactive ventilation device.

COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease)
COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) is used for a number of conditions including chronic bronchitis and emphysema, which all lead to the airways in the lungs becoming damaged and thus narrower, making inhalation and exhalation harder...
