Non Invasive Mechanical Ventilation in Acute Cardiogenic Pulmonary Edema

2014-07-23 21:14:19 | BioPortfolio


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.
