Respiratory failure is the danger for the patients admitted in ICU, mechanical ventilation could save a lot of patients' life, however, it prolongs patients' ICU stay and hospital stay. Hi...
Although the advent of advanced medical support for respiratory failure, the mortality rate of acute severe respiratory failure is still high and the life quality is frequently compromised...
Respiratory failure is a common consequence of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). A concurrent metabolic alkalosis may worsen the respiratory failure, as a higher pH in blood (a...
Heart failure is a common reason for respiratory failure in ICU patients. The rapid and accurate differentiation of heart failure from other causes of respiratory failure remains a clinica...
Acute respiratory failure secondary to bronchiolitis and asthma is one of the most common diagnoses in children admitted to pediatric intensive care unit. Objectives: The primary outcome ...
The purpose of this review is to provide an overview on how interactions between control of breathing, respiratory load, and muscle function may lead to respiratory failure. The mechanisms involved va...
The use of ECMO for cardiopulmonary support is indicated for refractory respiratory failure, but carries a high morbidity and mortality in the neurosurgical setting due to associated risks of intracra...
Pneumocystis jirovecii pneumonia (PCP) is often fatal in human immunodeficiency (HIV)-negative patients and typically presents with respiratory insufficiency. Predicting treatment failure is challengi...
Oxygenation index (OI), an invasive measurement, is routinely used as a marker of severity of hypoxemic respiratory failure in neonates. Oxygen saturation index (OSI) is a noninvasive measurement and ...
Chronic hypercapnic respiratory failure is essentially a ventilatory failure. Noninvasive ventilation (NIV ) reduces the work of breathing, improves pulmonary compliance and alveolar ventilation, corr...
Respiratory support system used primarily with rates of about 100 to 200/min with volumes of from about one to three times predicted anatomic dead space. Used to treat respiratory failure and maintain ventilation under severe circumstances.
Application of a life support system that circulates the blood through an oxygenating system, which may consist of a pump, a membrane oxygenator, and a heat exchanger. Examples of its use are to assist victims of smoke inhalation injury, respiratory failure, and cardiac failure.
Acute respiratory illness in humans caused by the Muerto Canyon virus whose primary rodent reservoir is the deer mouse Peromyscus maniculatus. First identified in the southwestern United States, this syndrome is characterized most commonly by fever, myalgias, headache, cough, and rapid respiratory failure.
Respiratory failure in the newborn. (Dorland, 27th ed)
Selective renal carbonic anhydrase inhibitor. It may also be of use in certain cases of respiratory failure.
