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.

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...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether high flow nasal oxygen (HFNO) therapy is non inferior to non invasive ventilation (NIV) in the immediate treatment of patients with acute ...
The aim of the present study was to demonstrate that an Non-Invasive Ventilation (NIV) performs better than a Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) in the management of Cardiogenic Pu...
The aims of our study was to identify early predictors of non-invasive ventilation failure, so as to alert clinicians early that endotracheal intubation and mechanical ventilation might be...
The prevalence of heart failure is estimated to 2.3 percent of the adult population and strongly increases with age, according to french disability-health surveys. In France, more than 32,...
High-flow nasal cannula is a new method for delivering high-flow supplemental oxygen for victims of respiratory failure. This randomized controlled trial compares high-flow nasal cannula with conventi...
To evaluate the effectiveness of noninvasive ventilation in patients with acute hypoxemic nonhypercapnic respiratory failure unrelated to exacerbation of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and card...
The physiological changes associated with pregnancy may predispose pregnant women to pulmonary edema. Other known causes of pulmonary edema during pregnancy include tocolytic drugs, preeclampsia, ecla...
Acute massive pulmonary embolism (AMPE) is a life-threatening condition that often induces rapid haemodynamic deterioration. The mortality of surgical embolectomy is still poor in patients with preope...
High altitude illness encompasses a spectrum of clinical entities to include: acute mountain sickness, high altitude cerebral edema, and high altitude pulmonary edema. These illnesses occur as a resul...
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.
