Effects of continuous positive airway pressure on blood pressure in obstructive sleep apnea patients: The Apnea Positive Pressure Long-term Efficacy Study (APPLES).

Obstructive sleep apnea is associated with hypertension, and short-term studies have demonstrated a modest reduction in blood pressure with continuous positive airway pressure therapy. We evaluated th...

Respiratory variations in pulse pressure and photoplethysmographic waveform amplitude during positive expiratory pressure and continuous positive airway pressure in a model of progressive hypovolemia.

Respiratory variations in pulse pressure (dPP) and photoplethysmographic waveform amplitude (dPOP) are used for evaluation of volume status in mechanically ventilated patients. Amplification of intrat...

The Effect of Continuous Positive Airway Pressure on Cerebral and Splanchnic Oxygenation in Preterm Infants.

Despite the known clinical benefits of continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) to support preterm infants breathing, there are limited studies that have examined its effect on regional oxygenation.

To Bubble or Not? A Systematic Review of Bubble Continuous Positive Airway Pressure in Children in Low- and Middle-Income Countries.

Bubble-continuous positive airway pressure (bCPAP) is a simple, low-cost ventilation therapy with the potential to lower morbidity and mortality in children in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs)...

Clinical characteristics of premature infants who orally feed on continuous positive airway pressure.

Between 32 and 34 weeks postconceptional age (PCA), premature infants typically achieve neuromuscular maturation to initiate the coordination of a nutritive suck triad. Many premature infants also r...

Could HRV be a Valuable Predictor for CPAP Adherence?

This study aim to evaluate if the improvement of heart rate variability for the continuous positive airway pressure titration night can predict the short and long term continuous positive ...

Effects of Continuous Airway Pressure on the Ability to Heat and Humidify Air

We hypothesize that continuous positive pressure applied to the airway will decrease the ability of the nose to warm and humidify inspired air compared to zero or negative pressure. We wi...

Continuous Positive Airway Pressure for the Treatment of Stroke

New stroke therapies are needed. This study seeks to provide the preliminary data needed to plan a future study that will evaluate the efficacy of using continuous positive airway pressur...

Continuous Positive Airway Pressure as a Potential New Treatment for Cluster Headache

Cluster headache is also called suicide headache due to excruciating nocturnal attacks. There are few treatment options available. Inhalation of oxygen has shown to abort the attacks. Con...

Upper Airway Stimulation Versus Continuous Positive Airway Pressure

Standard therapy in patients with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP). 30% to 50% are not adherent to this therapy and need an alternative treatment...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A technique of respiratory therapy, in either spontaneously breathing or mechanically ventilated patients, in which airway pressure is maintained above atmospheric pressure throughout the respiratory cycle by pressurization of the ventilatory circuit. (On-Line Medical Dictionary [Internet]. Newcastle upon Tyne(UK): The University Dept. of Medical Oncology: The CancerWEB Project; c1997-2003 [cited 2003 Apr 17]. Available from: http://cancerweb.ncl.ac.uk/omd/)

Application of positive pressure to the inspiratory phase when the patient has an artificial airway in place and is connected to a ventilator.

Non-therapeutic positive end-expiratory pressure occurring frequently in patients with severe airway obstruction. It can appear with or without the administration of external positive end-expiratory pressure (POSITIVE-PRESSURE RESPIRATION). It presents an important load on the inspiratory muscles which are operating at a mechanical disadvantage due to hyperinflation. Auto-PEEP may cause profound hypotension that should be treated by intravascular volume expansion, increasing the time for expiration, and/or changing from assist mode to intermittent mandatory ventilation mode. (From Harrison's Principles of Internal Medicine, 12th ed, p1127)

A type of oropharyngeal airway that provides an alternative to endotracheal intubation and standard mask anesthesia in certain patients. It is introduced into the hypopharynx to form a seal around the larynx thus permitting spontaneous or positive pressure ventilation without penetration of the larynx or esophagus. It is used in place of a facemask in routine anesthesia. The advantages over standard mask anesthesia are better airway control, minimal anesthetic gas leakage, a secure airway during patient transport to the recovery area, and minimal postoperative problems.

Application of positive pressure to the inspiratory phase of spontaneous respiration.
