Effects of CPAP on Ventricular Function Modifications

2014-07-23 21:29:50 | BioPortfolio

Summary

To assess modifications of ventricular function induced by CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure).

Description

There are still few studies on the effects of positive intra-thoracic pressure on ventricular function and spontaneous baroreflex sensitivity changes. Aim of the study is to evaluate, in patients with chronic heart failure with an ejection fraction < 40%, the modifications of ventricular function induced by CPAP (Continuos Positive Airway Pressure) application. All the measurament will be made in basal condition (without CPAP) and with CPAP administration at 10 cmH2O via an oro-nasal mask.

Echocardiograpich evaluation: morphologic and hemodynamic evaluation is obtained with an echocardiographic exmination. Left ventricular measurement will be assessed in M-mode, under two dimensional guide) according to American Society of Echocardiography guidelines. Left ventricular ejection fraction will be assessed with Simpson method.

Right ventricle morphology will be evaluated categorizing dimensions in a) normal, b) mild enlargement, c) severely increased and d) reduced. Right ventricle area will also be quantified in tele-diastole and in meso-sistole in apical 4 chamber and parasternal short-axis.

Baroreflex control of heart rate was assessed by “sequence method” analysis of continuous blood pressure recordings obtained in basal condition and during CPAP. Data obtained by non invasive assessment of arterial pressure will be analized and values of arterial systolic, diastolic pressure and pulsatory period for each cardiac cicle will be registered.

Assessment via "sequence method" is founded on identification, every 10 minutes, on sequences characterized by a progressive increase both in pressure both in RR interval or, conversely, by a progressive reduction of pressure and RR interval evaluated on 4 or more cardiac cicles.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A cardiotonic glycoside obtained mainly from Digitalis lanata; it consists of three sugars and the aglycone DIGOXIGENIN. Digoxin has positive inotropic and negative chronotropic activity. It is used to control ventricular rate in ATRIAL FIBRILLATION and in the management of congestive heart failure with atrial fibrillation. Its use in congestive heart failure and sinus rhythm is less certain. The margin between toxic and therapeutic doses is small. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p666)

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.

Agents that have a strengthening effect on the heart or that can increase cardiac output. They may be CARDIAC GLYCOSIDES; SYMPATHOMIMETICS; or other drugs. They are used after MYOCARDIAL INFARCT; CARDIAC SURGICAL PROCEDURES; in SHOCK; or in congestive heart failure (HEART FAILURE).

1,3-Dihydro-4-methyl-5-(4-(methylthio)benzoyl)-2H-imidazol-2-one. A selective phosphodiesterase inhibitor with vasodilating and positive inotropic activity that does not cause changes in myocardial oxygen consumption. It is used in patients with congestive heart failure.
