The primary objective of the study is to create a small dataset of regional pulmonary strain values in patients suffering from pulmonary diseases under mechanical ventilation in an intensi...
The overall goal of this study is to detect preclinical signs of HAPE by lung ultrasonography and evaluate the effectiveness of acetazolamide at decreasing pulmonary edema by using ultraso...
The study contain result from comparison of diagnostic result about lung collapsibility by using lung ultrasonography as intervention compare to fiberoptic bronchoscopy as gold standard
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,...
Stimulation at acupoints could be of beneficial effects during the perioperative period. In this study the investigators tend to verify the effect of dual acupoints stimulation on pulmonar...
Introduction: Due to specific anatomy of children are more vulnerable to the carcinogenic effects of ionizing radiation from chest X-rays. Lung ultrasound (LUS) is a validated procedure which can easi...
Pulmonary ultrasonography is a complementary study that is easy to perform at the patient bedside with no need to transfer the patient to special areas. The technique provides information with high se...
Pulmonary function testing is essential for diagnosis and treatment-guidance of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Airway obstruction as assessed by spirometry should follow the reference-v...
Real use of lung (LT) and heart-lung (HLT) transplantation in pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) is unknown. The objectives were to describe the indication of these procedures on PAH treatment in a...
This report describes the development of polyplexes based on CXCR4-inhibiting poly(ethylenimine) derivative (PEI-C) for pulmonary delivery of siRNA to silence plasminogen activator inhibitor-1 (siPAI-...
Absence of air in the entire or part of a lung, such as an incompletely inflated neonate lung or a collapsed adult lung. Pulmonary atelectasis can be caused by airway obstruction, lung compression, fibrotic contraction, or other factors.
A diverse group of lung diseases that affect the lung parenchyma. They are characterized by an initial inflammation of PULMONARY ALVEOLI that extends to the interstitium and beyond leading to diffuse PULMONARY FIBROSIS. Interstitial lung diseases are classified by their etiology (known or unknown causes), and radiological-pathological features.
A condition of lung damage that is characterized by bilateral pulmonary infiltrates (PULMONARY EDEMA) rich in NEUTROPHILS, and in the absence of clinical HEART FAILURE. This can represent a spectrum of pulmonary lesions, endothelial and epithelial, due to numerous factors (physical, chemical, or biological).
Lung infections with the invasive forms of ASPERGILLUS, usually after surgery, transplantation, prolonged NEUTROPENIA or treatment with high-doses of CORTICOSTEROIDS. Invasive pulmonary aspergillosis can progress to CHRONIC NECROTIZING PULMONARY ASPERGILLOSIS or hematogenous spread to other organs.
Excessive accumulation of extravascular fluid in the lung, an indication of a serious underlying disease or disorder. Pulmonary edema prevents efficient PULMONARY GAS EXCHANGE in the PULMONARY ALVEOLI, and can be life-threatening.
