The investigator will evaluate the influence of lung protective ventilation on postoperative clinical outcome in patients undergoing one-lung ventilation for pulmonary lobectomy.
This study evaluates the use of ultra-protective ventilation, where very low ventilation volumes are used, in patients with severe acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) meeting criter...
This study evaluates the local cytokine inflammatory response during one lung ventilation in patients undergoing pulmonary lobectomy or wedge resection. We compare two different ventilatio...
This study aims to investigate the feasibility of a driving pressure limited mechanical ventilation strategy compared to a conventional strategy in patients undergoing one-lung ventilation...
The objective of this crossover study and randomized controlled trial (RCT) is to compare ΔP levels during INTELLiVENT®-ASV with conventional lung protective ventilation in the acute and ...
Computed tomography (CT) and spirometry are the current standard methods for assessing lung anatomy and pulmonary ventilation, respectively. However, CT provides limited ventilation information and sp...
Acute lung injury is a life threatening condition often requiring mechanical ventilation. Lung-protective ventilation with tidal volumes of 6 mL/kg predicted body weight (PBW, calculated on the basis ...
Four-dimensional computed tomography (4D-CT) ventilation is an emerging imaging modality. Functional avoidance of regions according to 4D-CT ventilation may reduce lung toxicity after radiation therap...
WHAT THIS ARTICLE TELLS US THAT IS NEW: BACKGROUND:: Intraoperative lung-protective ventilation has been recommended to reduce postoperative pulmonary complications after abdominal surgery. Although t...
Different mechanical ventilation settings are known to affect lung preservation for lung transplantation. Measurement of particle flow in exhaled air may allow online assessment of the impact of venti...
The ratio of alveolar ventilation to simultaneous alveolar capillary blood flow in any part of the lung. (Stedman, 25th ed)
Ventilatory support system using frequencies from 60-900 cycles/min or more. Three types of systems have been distinguished on the basis of rates, volumes, and the system used. They are high frequency positive-pressure ventilation (HFPPV); HIGH-FREQUENCY JET VENTILATION; (HFJV); and high-frequency oscillation (HFO).
Techniques for effecting the transition of the respiratory-failure patient from mechanical ventilation to spontaneous ventilation, while meeting the criteria that tidal volume be above a given threshold (greater than 5 ml/kg), respiratory frequency be below a given count (less than 30 breaths/min), and oxygen partial pressure be above a given threshold (PaO2 greater than 50mm Hg). Weaning studies focus on finding methods to monitor and predict the outcome of mechanical ventilator weaning as well as finding ventilatory support techniques which will facilitate successful weaning. Present methods include intermittent mandatory ventilation, intermittent positive pressure ventilation, and mandatory minute volume ventilation.
Techniques for supplying artificial respiration to a single lung.
Mechanical ventilation delivered to match the patient's efforts in breathing as detected by the interactive ventilation device.
