Precise measurement of diaphragm function is difficult. Several methods exist. No are sufficiently validated.
With this study, the investigators wish to investigate the validity of different ultrasound and radiological methods and compare them with inspiratory pressure measurements.

This study aims to assess whether the electrical signal of the diaphragm (diaphragm electromyogram) and the ratio of that to tidal volume (amount of air breathed in and out of the lungs) c...
A randomized clinical trial to investigate the use of the temporary Diaphragm Pacing Therapy System (DPTS) to rehabilitate the diaphragm in mechanically ventilated patients who have failed...
This study evaluates the effect of positive end-expiratory pressure on the position, length and function of the diaphragm. During the first part of the study, physiological measurements of...
Stroke is the leading cause of adult disability throughout the world. Motor function deficit is one of the common consequences. It is usually described for the peripheral muscles that ther...
The main objective is to evaluate the evolution of the thickness of the diaphragm (during the first week of treatment) by VA ECMO in the resuscitation patients. The comprehension of the m...
To evaluate a lactic-acid-containing diaphragm gel (Contragel®) approved outside the United States for use with a silicone rubber diaphragm (Caya®). The study gel is being evaluated as a safer alter...
This prospective observational study reports on diaphragm excursion, velocity of diaphragm contraction, and changes in pleural pressure that occur with thoracentesis.
Diaphragm weakness or dysfunction have been previously reported in multiple sclerosis (MS) patients. The aim of this study was to evaluate diaphragm thickness and thickenning ratio (TR) using ultrasou...
Classic physiology suggests that the two distinct diaphragm segments, costal and crural, are functionally different. It is not known if the two diaphragm muscles share a common neural mechanical activ...
Small bowel diaphragm disease (SBDD) is characterised by circumferential lesions of short length (
A congenital abnormality characterized by the elevation of the DIAPHRAGM dome. It is the result of a thinned diaphragmatic muscle and injured PHRENIC NERVE, allowing the intra-abdominal viscera to push the diaphragm upward against the LUNG.
The musculofibrous partition that separates the THORACIC CAVITY from the ABDOMINAL CAVITY. Contraction of the diaphragm increases the volume of the thoracic cavity aiding INHALATION.
Soft tissue formed mainly by the pelvic diaphragm, which is composed of the two levator ani and two coccygeus muscles. The pelvic diaphragm lies just below the pelvic aperture (outlet) and separates the pelvic cavity from the PERINEUM. It extends between the PUBIC BONE anteriorly and the COCCYX posteriorly.
The motor nerve of the diaphragm. The phrenic nerve fibers originate in the cervical spinal column (mostly C4) and travel through the cervical plexus to the diaphragm.
STOMACH herniation located at or near the diaphragmatic opening for the ESOPHAGUS, esophageal hiatus. When the ESOPHAGOGASTRIC JUNCTION is above the DIAPHRAGM, it is called a SLIDING HIATAL HERNIA. When the ESOPHAGOGASTRIC JUNCTION is below the DIAPHRAGM, it is called a PARAESOPHAGEAL HIATAL HERNIA.
Radiology is the branch of medicine that studies imaging of the body; X-ray (basic, angiography, barium swallows), ultrasound, MRI, CT and PET. These imaging techniques can be used to diagnose, but also to treat a range of conditions, by allowing visuali...
