Influence of an Inverse Pressure Ramp in Long-term Non-invasive Ventilation on Dyspnea in the Morning After Therapy

2019-09-23 04:51:40 | BioPortfolio


Patients being treated with non-invasive home mechanical ventilation (NIV) may experience morning dyspnea after each night of NIV use, when the therapy is abruptly ended. This study aims to show that dyspnea intensity can be significantly reduced by a gentle NIV therapy end, delivered by a continuously decreasing pressure level (inverse pressure ramp) after therapy end in the morning, a feature called softSTOPP, which can configured in prismaVENT NIV devices. This could also improve therapy adherence.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Techniques for administering artificial respiration without the need for INTRATRACHEAL INTUBATION.

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.

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.
