Adverse events are frequent in Neonatal Intensive Care Unit' (NICU) patients and account for a high morbidity and mortality. Possible severe adverse events are central line associated bloo...
Conduct human trials in the endoscopy suite of our continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) ventilator approach using an FDA approved ventilator.
It exists recommendations to get an optimal antibiotic treatment for bone and joint infection and prescription of antibiotics in the bone and joint infections on material meets certain obl...
Many patients with cancer experience moderate to severe pain that requires treatment with strong opioids, of which oxycodone and morphine are examples, they are widely applied in clinical ...
The purpose of this study is to understand the patient experience with an adverse event after surgery. An adverse event is an undesirable experience or complication associated with your su...
Ventilator-associated pneumonia is the second most common nosocomial infection in pediatric intensive care. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recently issued diagnosis criteria for pediat...
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention replaced the definition for ventilator-associated pneumonia with an algorithm comprised of three categories-ventilator associated condition (VAC), infect...
Ventilator alarms have long been presumed to contribute substantially to the overall alarm burden in the intensive care unit. In a prospective observational study, we determined that each ventilator t...
Medical errors and adverse events are unavoidable. The effect of adverse outcomes on providers can be devastating. An intraoperative adverse event is often directly attributable to surgeon's technical...
To compare the prevalence of infection applying the proposed pediatric ventilator-associated events criteria versus clinician-diagnosed ventilator-associated infection to subjects in the pediatric ven...
Lung damage that is caused by the adverse effects of PULMONARY VENTILATOR usage. The high frequency and tidal volumes produced by a mechanical ventilator can cause alveolar disruption and PULMONARY EDEMA.
Serious INFLAMMATION of the LUNG in patients who required the use of PULMONARY VENTILATOR. It is usually caused by cross bacterial infections in hospitals (NOSOCOMIAL INFECTIONS).
A late-appearing component of the event-related potential. P300 stands for a positive deflection in the event-related voltage potential at 300 millisecond poststimulus. Its amplitude increases with unpredictable, unlikely, or highly significant stimuli and thereby constitutes an index of mental activity. (From Campbell, Psychiatric Dictionary, 6th ed)
An event experienced by an infant or a child that is characterized by some combination of apnea, color change, change in muscle tone, choking, and gagging.
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.
