Non Invasive Ventilation in Bronchiolitis

2018-08-09 17:25:22 | BioPortfolio


It is decided to perform a prospective study in a non-selected population of infants with bronchiolitis during one year ( October.2018 to October.2019) to study the characteristics, clinical course and outcome of the use of Non invasive ventilation in the management and compare the results with those treated with invasive ventilation to assess safety and efficacy and inform guideline construction.


Acute viral bronchiolitis is one of the most common respiratory diseases in early childhood and is a major health problem worldwide. The seasonal burden of the disease, the number of hospitalizations each year and the risk of subsequent asthma bring about substantial costs in developed countries. Respiratory syncytial virus and Human Rhinovirus seem to be the most frequent etiologic agents, but other viruses such as human Metapneumovirus, Influenza virus, and Parainfluenza virus can also be involved. The spectrum of clinical outcomes is wide, but bronchiolitis is more severe when caused by Respiratory syncytial virus. In contrast, while Human Rhinovirus is involved in milder forms, it is more likely to be associated with recurrent wheezing in infancy. Acute respiratory failure from pneumonia, influenza, and respiratory syncytial virus is responsible for 4.25 million deaths world-wide and the leading cause of mortality in low and middle-income countries. In the United Kingdom up to 7% of bronchiolitis admissions require intensive care for ventilatory support. One third of unplanned infant admissions to pediatric intensive care units have respiratory failure, the majority due to bronchiolitis, require invasive mechanical ventilation for 4-7 days and a prolonged hospital stay. In countries where there is no retrieval infrastructure, the need to develop safe and effective alternatives to invasive ventilation and pediatric intensive care unit admission is acute. However, none of the interventions commonly used for infants admitted with bronchiolitis is backed by robust evidence of benefit for clinically significant outcomes, making this a pressing subject for further study. Typically, intensive respiratory support for bronchiolitis is via invasive mechanical ventilation through an artificial airway, an intervention with recognized complications in infants. There is evidence to support the use of non-invasive ventilation in pediatric acute respiratory failure of variable causes.Although evidence for use in bronchiolitis is increasing,clinical acceptance is not universal and published best practice guidelines are not easily available.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Ventilatory support system using frequencies from 60-900 cycles/min or more. Three types of systems have been distinguished on the basis of rates, volumes, and the system used. They are high frequency positive-pressure ventilation (HFPPV); HIGH-FREQUENCY JET VENTILATION; (HFJV); and high-frequency oscillation (HFO).

Techniques for effecting the transition of the respiratory-failure patient from mechanical ventilation to spontaneous ventilation, while meeting the criteria that tidal volume be above a given threshold (greater than 5 ml/kg), respiratory frequency be below a given count (less than 30 breaths/min), and oxygen partial pressure be above a given threshold (PaO2 greater than 50mm Hg). Weaning studies focus on finding methods to monitor and predict the outcome of mechanical ventilator weaning as well as finding ventilatory support techniques which will facilitate successful weaning. Present methods include intermittent mandatory ventilation, intermittent positive pressure ventilation, and mandatory minute volume ventilation.

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.

Mechanical ventilation delivered to match the patient's efforts in breathing as detected by the interactive ventilation device.

Ventilation of the middle ear in the treatment of secretory (serous) otitis media, usually by placement of tubes or grommets which pierce the tympanic membrane.
