To measure changes in physiologic parameters in extremely low birthweight (ELBW) infants on high-flow nasal cannula compared to nasal continuous positive airway pressure (nCPAP).
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...
Compare the impact of initial extubation to positive airway pressure versus high-flow nasal cannula on postoperative outcomes in neonates and infants after congenital heart surgery.
We reviewed using a high-flow nasal cannula (HFNC) as first-line support for preterm neonates with, or at risk of, respiratory distress.
High-flow nasal cannula (HFNC) therapy is increasingly proposed as first-line respiratory support for infants with acute viral bronchiolitis (AVB). Most teams use 2 L/kg/min, but no study compared di...
The delivery of oxygen is a key component of anaesthetic practice. High flow nasal oxygen therapy is a relatively new addition to more traditional means of oxygenation which provides heated and humidi...
Upper airway obstruction during anesthesia is the leading cause of complications during sedation, intubation, and emergence. Devices to support oxygenation and ventilation are costly, require capital ...
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.
