Non Invasive Mechanical Ventilation in Acute Cardiogenic Pulmonary Edema
Cardiogenic pulmonary edema (CPE) is a common medical emergency and noninvasive ventilation (NIV) in addition to conventional medical treatment might be beneficial for patients with CPE.
To evaluate the effect of adding continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) or bilevel positive airway pressure (BiPAP) to standard medical therapy (ST) on intensive care unit (ICU) stay, hospital stay, mortality, need for endotracheal intubation, partial arterial O2 tension (PaO2), intrapulmonary shunt, alveolar-arterial (A-a) oxygen gradient, and cardiac output in patients admitted to the respiratory intensive care unit (ICU) or cardiac care unit (CCU) with acute CPE with gas exchange abnormalities and to evaluate the impact of heart failure type on the outcome of different therapeutic schedules.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Excessive accumulation of extravascular fluid in the lung, an indication of a serious underlying disease or disorder. Pulmonary edema prevents efficient PULMONARY GAS EXCHANGE in the PULMONARY ALVEOLI, and can be life-threatening.
A condition of lung damage that is characterized by bilateral pulmonary infiltrates (PULMONARY EDEMA) rich in NEUTROPHILS, and in the absence of clinical HEART FAILURE. This can represent a spectrum of pulmonary lesions, endothelial and epithelial, due to numerous factors (physical, chemical, or biological).
An insect-borne reovirus infection of horses, mules and donkeys in Africa and the Middle East; characterized by pulmonary edema, cardiac involvement, and edema of the head and neck.
An acute disease of young pigs that is usually associated with weaning. It is characterized clinically by paresis and subcutaneous edema.
A form of pneumoconiosis caused by inhaled rare metal BERYLLIUM or its soluble salts which are used in a wide variety of industry including alloys, ceramics, radiographic equipment, and vacuum tubes. Berylliosis is characterized by an acute inflammatory reaction in the upper airway leading to BRONCHIOLITIS; PULMONARY EDEMA; and pneumonia.
In cardiogenic pulmonary edema, Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) added to medical treatment improves outcome. The present study was designed to assess the benefit of CPAP as a fi...
Acute cardiogenic pulmonary edema (ACPE), one of the most severe forms of acute heart failure, represents 5% of hospital admissions. One of the most frequent phenomena encountered during A...
The primary objective outcome is the proportion of participants compliant (at least four hours of use per night for all nights) in the Auto Bilevel group compared to the CPAP group after 9...
This randomized controlled trial is primarily aimed at assessing the rate of acute myocardial infarction with the two noninvasive ventilatory techniques, non-invasive intermittent positive...
Context: The obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS), i.e., snoring with difficulty breathing during sleep, is common in children. Continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) therapy is t...
Acute myocardial infarction is a rare complication of dobutamine stress echocardiography. We describe the case of a diabetic patient who presented with an anterior myocardial infarction complicated by...
The use of thrombolytic therapy in haemodynamically stable patients with sub-massive pulmonary embolism is still controversial. We conducted this study to observe the safety and efficacy of thrombolyt...
A 69-year-old woman with idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy and chronic heart failure experienced repeated hospital admissions for acute pulmonary edema with no recognizable precipitating factor. Worse...
We report on a 19-year-old patient who developed negative pressure pulmonary edema (NPPE) with respiratory insufficiency following abscess tonsillectomy. NPPE is an unpredictable and life-threatening...
We report a case that showed transitional, severe emergent periodic limb movements during sleep (PLMS) in the first continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) titration night and mild PLMS in the 3rd...
