This pilot observational study will assess changes in pH /PaO2 /PaCO2, Respiratory Rate and device CO2 clearance in the first 24 hours of Extracorporeal CO2 removal (ECCO2R) following tida...
Noninvasive ventilation represents the standard of care for patients with exacerbation of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. However, NIV fails in almost 30% of the most severe forms o...
30% of ARDS patients ventilated according to NIH protocol presents morphological (CT) and functional (Stress Index>1) conditions of hyperinflation even with Plateau pressure (Pplat) < 30 c...
Few patients who have major risk factors develop Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS). The heritable determinants might be the reason. The multicenter study is to investigate the ass...
Expiratory flow limitation (EFL) is defined as a dynamic condition that expiratory flow cannot be further increased with higher expiratory driving pressure. Under mechanical ventilation, i...
Acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) has been shown to be frequently associated with haemodynamic instability requiring the use of vasopressors. To date, there is still some uncertainty in the u...
The acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) is a devastating illness with limited therapeutic options. A better understanding of early biochemical and immunological events in ARDS could inform the ...
The amount of PLASMA that perfuses the KIDNEYS per unit time, approximately 10% greater than effective renal plasma flow (RENAL PLASMA FLOW, EFFECTIVE). It should be differentiated from the RENAL BLOOD FLOW; (RBF), which refers to the total volume of BLOOD flowing through the renal vasculature, while the renal plasma flow refers to the rate of plasma flow (RPF).
The study of the deformation and flow of matter, usually liquids or fluids, and of the plastic flow of solids. The concept covers consistency, dilatancy, liquefaction, resistance to flow, shearing, thixotrophy, and VISCOSITY.
A heptapeptide formed from ANGIOTENSIN II after the removal of an amino acid at the N-terminal by AMINOPEPTIDASE A. Angiotensin III has the same efficacy as ANGIOTENSIN II in promoting ALDOSTERONE secretion and modifying renal blood flow, but less vasopressor activity (about 40%).
Ultrasonography applying the Doppler effect, with the superposition of flow information as colors on a gray scale in a real-time image. This type of ultrasonography is well-suited to identifying the location of high-velocity flow (such as in a stenosis) or of mapping the extent of flow in a certain region.
The ratio of maximum blood flow to the MYOCARDIUM with CORONARY STENOSIS present, to the maximum equivalent blood flow without stenosis. The measurement is commonly used to verify borderline stenosis of CORONARY ARTERIES.
