The purpose of this study is to compare two physiotherapy techniques: chest wall compression versus chest wall compression plus increase of 10 cmH2O in inspiratory pressure.
1. After being placed in the supine position in bed, with head angle elevation at 30°, patients were randomized to:group 1 (G1): chest wall compression for ten minutes in chest or group 2 (G2): chest wall compression plus increase of 10 cmH2O in IP in PSV for ten minutes in chest.
2. Clinical variables and APACHE II were registered.
3. Parameters analyzed at the beginning (1) and at the end (2) of the protocol were: variation of peak pressure (ΔPp=Pp2-Pp1),variation of tidal volume (ΔVT =VT2-VT1), variation of dynamic compliance (ΔCdyn= Cdyn2-Cdyn1).
4. The amount of variation of mucus secretion aspirated (ΔSa= Sa2-Sa1) at the end was also measured
Allocation: Randomized, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Open Label

Study the effects of inspiratory muscle training at Low load of 25 %Maximal inspiratory pressure with slow breathing rate at 6 breaths/min on inspiratory muscle strength, lung function, ch...
The purpose of this study is to find an optimal inspiratory pressure to provide adequate tidal volume and prevent gastric insufflation in pediatric patients. The children under 5 years ol...
The level of suction on post-operative chest tubes after video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) lobectomy for lung cancer has previously shown to affect duration of drainage. These re...
Breathing movements, called chest wall motion, are very complex. The investigators are studying how movement of the abdomen, ribs and diaphragm contribute to breathing and how this differs...
The investigators aimed to evaluate the effects of cardiomegaly associated with inspiratory muscle weakness on tricompartmental distribution of chest wall volumes, on the thickness of the ...
Previous research has reported that inspiratory muscle weakness is critical to decreased exercise tolerance and exercise tolerance improves with 10 cmH2O pressure support ventilation in patients with ...
Positive pressure ventilation (PPV) can increase exercise performance in cyclists, but its effects are unclear in other exercise modes, especially those using large muscle mass. The aim of the present...
In pressure-controlled (PC) ventilation, tidal volume (V T) and transpulmonary pressure (P L ) result from the addition of ventilator pressure and the patient's inspiratory effort. PC modes can be cla...
Previous work has shown inspiratory muscle training (IMT) lowers blood pressure after just six weeks, identifying IMT as a potential therapeutic to prevent/treat hypertension. Here, we explore the eff...
Primary chest wall neoplasms are uncommon and comprise a heterogeneous group of lesions that may be challenging to classify and diagnose. These tumors may be primary or secondary, malignant or benign,...
A respiratory support system used to remove mucus and clear airway by oscillating pressure on the chest.
Body ventilators that assist ventilation by applying intermittent subatmospheric pressure around the thorax, abdomen, or airway and periodically expand the chest wall and inflate the lungs. They are relatively simple to operate and do not require tracheostomy. These devices include the tank ventilators ("iron lung"), Portalung, Pneumowrap, and chest cuirass ("tortoise shell").
The intermittent delivery of pulses of air pressure (5 -20 cmH2O) to the middle ear space through a TYMPANOSTOMY tube.
Pressure, burning, or numbness in the chest.
Application of positive pressure to the inspiratory phase of spontaneous respiration.
