Role of Sphingolipids in Pulmonary Edema

2014-07-23 21:08:21 | BioPortfolio

Summary

In this mono-center prospective study, the impact of changes in the sphingolipid metabolism in patients with pulmonary edema will be investigated.

Description

There will be two groups of patients:

1. hydrostatic pulmonary edema

2. toxic pulmonary edema

Samples of a routine bronchoalveolar lavage will be analysed in respect of sphingolipids, ceramide, sphingomyelin-phosphodiesterase and several cytokines.

Evaluation of the Effectiveness of Non-invasive Ventilation on the Reperfusion Pulmonary Edema Post Pulmonary Artery Angioplasty in the Post Embolic Pulmonary Hypertension

The purpose of this study is to determine whether Non Invasive Ventilation are effective in prevention of reperfusion pulmonary edema after pulmonary artery angioplasty. Our hypothesis is ...

Out-of-Hospital CPAP for Severe Cardiogenic Pulmonary Edema

In cardiogenic pulmonary edema, Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) added to medical treatment improves outcome. The present study was designed to assess the benefit of CPAP as a fi...

Non Invasive Mechanical Ventilation in Acute Cardiogenic Pulmonary Edema

Cardiogenic pulmonary edema (CPE) is a common medical emergency and noninvasive ventilation (NIV) in addition to conventional medical treatment might be beneficial for patients with CPE.

Performance Evaluation of Clinical Ultrasound in Management of Acute Pulmonary Edema in Elderly Patient

The main objective is to assess the validation of the diagnosis early acute pulmonary edema in elderly patients with acute respiratory distress, admitted in a host of vital emergency servi...

Unilateral Pulmonary Edema After Minimal-invasive Mitral Valve Surgery

Unilateral pulmonary edema after minimal-invasive mitral valve surgery is a rare but in some cases severe complications, sometimes causing extracorporeal life support. The investigators ha...

Reexpansion Pulmonary Edema in Pediatrics.

Reexpansion pulmonary edema is a rare complication that may occur after drainage of pneumothorax or pleural effusion. A number of factors have been identified that increase the risk of developing reex...

Upfront triple combination therapy-induced pulmonary edema in a case of pulmonary arterial hypertension associated with Sjogren's syndrome.

Clinical efficacy of combination therapy using vasodilators for pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) is well established. However, information on its safety are limited. We experienced a case of prim...

Thoracic fluid content: a novel parameter for detection of pulmonary edema in parturients with preeclampsia.

Acute pulmonary oedema is a serious complication of preeclampsia. Early detection of pulmonary edema in preeclampsia would improve fluid management and would also allow earlier detection of severe cas...

Burden and correlates of readmissions related to pulmonary edema in US hemodialysis patients: a cohort study.

Pulmonary edema is prevalent and may be a common cause of hospital readmissions in hemodialysis patients. We aimed to estimate the national burden of, and identify correlates of, readmissions related ...

Predicting cardiogenic pulmonary edema in heart failure patients by using an N-terminal pro-b-type natriuretic peptide (NT-pro BNP) -based score.

Cardiogenic pulmonary edema (CPE) is a life-threatening emergency necessitating aggressive management. We conducted this study to test the hypothesis that a combination of N-terminal pro-b-type natriu...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

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).

An insect-borne reovirus infection of horses, mules and donkeys in Africa and the Middle East; characterized by pulmonary edema, cardiac involvement, and edema of the head and neck.

Lung damage that is caused by the adverse effects of PULMONARY VENTILATOR usage. The high frequency and tidal volumes produced by a mechanical ventilator can cause alveolar disruption and PULMONARY EDEMA.

A multisystemic disorder characterized by a sensorimotor polyneuropathy (POLYNEUROPATHIES), organomegaly, endocrinopathy, monoclonal gammopathy, and pigmentary skin changes. Other clinical features which may be present include EDEMA; CACHEXIA; microangiopathic glomerulopathy; pulmonary hypertension (HYPERTENSION, PULMONARY); cutaneous necrosis; THROMBOCYTOSIS; and POLYCYTHEMIA. This disorder is frequently associated with osteosclerotic myeloma. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1335; Rev Med Interne 1997;18(7):553-62)
