Suprastomal collapse is a complication of pediatric tracheotomy with a potential impact on decannulation success. The aim of this study was to review the experience in the management of pediatric supr...
Many studies have shown that the adsorption of ions like K and Cs on 2:1 clay minerals can prompt the collapse of their interlayers and render the adsorbing ions nonexchangeable. This study sought to ...
Speciation is the process that generates biodiversity, but recent empirical findings show that it can also fail, leading to the collapse of two incipient species into one. Here, we elucidate the mecha...
To determine the incidence of cardiovascular collapse in children receiving intravenous (IV) amiodarone and to identify the population at risk.
Coastal wetlands are susceptible to loss in both health and extent via stressors associated with global climate change and anthropogenic disturbance. Peat collapse may represent an additional phenomen...
Lung isolation technique and one-lung ventilation (OLV) are the mainstays of thoracic anesthesia. Two principal lung isolation techniques are mainly use by clinicians, the double lumen tub...
Mounier-Kuhn syndrome (MKS), or congenital tracheobronchiomegaly, is an entity characterized by dilation of the trachea and bronchi, associated with respiratory infections.The main signs a...
Complications are common during tracheal intubation of critically ill patients. Nearly one in five patients undergoing intubation in the intensive care unit experiences cardiovascular coll...
In the operating room, most intubation procedures (IP) are scheduled and performed on hemodynamiccaly stable patients. In the ICU, IP is frequently performed in emergent patients, because ...
The aim of this study is to assess the benefit of a portable ventilator generating positive end-expiratory pressure on exercise tolerance in patients with Excessive dynamic airway collapse...
The sudden collapse and disappearance or diminution of a colony of organisms.
Surgical treatment of pulmonary tuberculosis whereby the lung is totally or partially, temporarily or permanently, immobilized. The procedure was based on the popular concept that collapsing the affected portion of a tuberculous lung allowed the infected area to rest and thereby recover. At the beginning of the 20th century artificially induced pneumothorax (PNEUMOTHORAX, ARTIFICIAL) was popular. Later a variety of other techniques was used to encourage collapse of the infected portion of the lung: unilateral phrenic nerve division, PNEUMONOLYSIS, pneumoperitoneum (PNEUMOPERITONEUM, ARTIFICIAL), and THORACOPLASTY. Collapse therapy has declined since the advent of antitubercular chemotherapy. (Stedman, 25th ed; from Sabiston Jr, Textbook of Surgery, 14th ed, p1733-4)
Failure in built environment with loss of functional integrity.
Surgical removal of ribs, allowing the chest wall to move inward and collapse a diseased lung. (Dorland, 28th ed)
Injection of air or a more slowly absorbed gas such as nitrogen, into the pleural space to collapse the lung. It was formerly used to treat pulmonary tuberculosis. (From Stedman, 26th ed & Dorland, 28th ed)
