The specific aims of this study are to evaluate the amount of high flow nasal cannula (HFNC) gas flow required to generate an equivalent positive distending pressure as that provided by na...
Respiratory distress after extubation is associated with increased morbidity and mortality. Its multifactorial pathophysiology causes a loss of pulmonary aeration during the weaning proces...
monocentric randomized controlled trial starting from Mars 2017, recruitment is still ongoing. Patients aged between 0-45 days needing mechanical ventilation (MV) with tracheal intubation ...
A single center, prospective study to assess the efficacy of high flow nasal cannula (HFNC) in improving obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) parameters in patients with reduced tolerance to cont...
Procedural sedation is an established and safe intervention and is widely used in diagnostic and therapeutic procedures for pediatric patients. Nonetheless, problems of the respiratory sys...
We reviewed using a high-flow nasal cannula (HFNC) as first-line support for preterm neonates with, or at risk of, respiratory distress.
Heated humidification is paramount during neonatal high-flow nasal cannula (HFNC) therapy. However, there is little knowledge about the influence of flow rate and mouth leak on oropharyngeal humidific...
High-flow oxygen therapy through a nasal cannula has been increasingly used in infants with bronchiolitis, despite limited high-quality evidence of its efficacy. The efficacy of high-flow oxygen thera...
Capnography via a CO2/O2 nasal cannula is commonly used for respiratory monitoring during sedation. However, signal disturbances are frequently encountered, especially in young children.
A growing evidence base suggests a benefit of using high-flow nasal cannula oxygen therapy (HFNC) in the acute setting. However, the clinical benefit of domiciliary use of HFNC in patients with chroni...
Removal of an endotracheal tube from the patient.
Diagnostic measurement of the nose and its cavity through acoustic reflections. Used to measure nasal anatomical landmarks, nasal septal deviation, and nasal airway changes in response to allergen provocation tests (NASAL PROVOCATION TESTS).
Physiologically, the opposition to flow of air caused by the forces of friction. As a part of pulmonary function testing, it is the ratio of driving pressure to the rate of air flow.
A form of bronchial disorder with three distinct components: airway hyper-responsiveness (RESPIRATORY HYPERSENSITIVITY), airway INFLAMMATION, and intermittent AIRWAY OBSTRUCTION. It is characterized by spasmodic contraction of airway smooth muscle, WHEEZING, and dyspnea (DYSPNEA, PAROXYSMAL).
Fluid obtained by irrigation or washout of the nasal cavity and NASAL MUCOSA. The resulting fluid is used in cytologic and immunologic assays of the nasal mucosa such as with the NASAL PROVOCATION TEST in the diagnosis of nasal hypersensitivity.
