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...
Early mechanical ventilation, if delivered with injurious settings, can lead to pulmonary complications, such as acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). Mechanical ventilation in the e...
The investigator will evaluate the influence of lung protective ventilation on postoperative clinical outcome in pediatric patients. The hypothesis is that application of low tidal volume,...
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 is designed to exam the effects of early management with high frequency percussive ventilation (HFPV) on patients with lung injury. Patients at risk for Acute Respiratory Distr...
Burn injury results in a severe systemic inflammatory response which is associated with the development of acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), even without associated inhalation injury. Venous...
There is wide variability in mechanical ventilation settings during ECMO in ARDS patients. Although lung rest is recommended to prevent further injury, there is no evidence to support it.
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 ...
Acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) is a condition affecting critically ill patients, characterized by pulmonary inflammation and defects in oxygenation due to either direct or indirect injury ...
Acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) is a type of acute, diffuse, and inflammatory lung injury. The Berlin definition (2012) includes the following ARDS criteria: a) onset within one week of a k...
Techniques for supplying artificial respiration to a single lung.
The ratio of alveolar ventilation to simultaneous alveolar capillary blood flow in any part of the lung. (Stedman, 25th ed)
Specialized clothing or equipment worn for protection against health hazards. Personal Protective Equipment may include MASKS; RESPIRATORY PROTECTIVE DEVICES; HEAD PROTECTIVE DEVICES; EYE PROTECTIVE DEVICES; EAR PROTECTIVE DEVICES; PROTECTIVE CLOTHING; and protective footwear.
A chronic lung disease developed after OXYGEN INHALATION THERAPY or mechanical ventilation (VENTILATION, MECHANICAL) usually occurring in certain premature infants (INFANT, PREMATURE) or newborn infants with respiratory distress syndrome (RESPIRATORY DISTRESS SYNDROME, NEWBORN). Histologically, it is characterized by the unusual abnormalities of the bronchioles, such as METAPLASIA, decrease in alveolar number, and formation of CYSTS.
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).
