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...
Pulmonary complications are frequent in cardiac surgery, representing an important cause of morbidity, prolongation of hospital stay and need for repeated examinations.Chest X-rays are don...
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
For performing subclavian venous catheterization, two approaches (supraclavicular and infraclavicular) have been used successfully in various clinical practice. However, there remains cont...
The authors report their findings regarding lung ultrasound profiles in a population of transplant recipients. Twenty-two patients were studied once each in multiple different ultrasound windows focus...
Small-cell lung cancer (SCLC) rarely coexists with pulmonary Mycobacterium avium intracellular complex (MAC) infection. The key drug for SCLC treatment is etoposide, which is metabolized by cytochrome...
Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is an interstitial lung disease with poor prognosis. Although the underlying mechanisms are not fully understood, IPF is connected with lung cancer development, whi...
Chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension (CTEPH) is a life-threatening complication of acute pulmonary embolism (PE). Because the treatment of CTEPH is markedly different from that of other types...
Solitary pulmonary capillary hemangioma (SPCH) is a rare lung tumor typically presenting as pure or part-solid ground-glass nodules (GGNs) on computed tomography (CT), which clinically resembles early...
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.
