Efficacy of Helium/Oxygen Compared to Air/Oxygen in Severe Exacerbation of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)

2014-07-23 21:08:34 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The primary objective of the study is to evaluate the efficacy of Helium/Oxygen (He/O2) 78%/22% compared to a conventional Air/O2 mixture in reducing endotracheal intubation rate and mortality in patients with severe hypercapnic exacerbations of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) during their index Intensive/Intermediate Care Unit (ICU) stay.

Description

Patients eligible for this study are critically ill patients with COPD admitted in Intensive Care Unit for an exacerbation of their chronic disease with hypercapnic acute respiratory failure. The patients will receive an Helium/Oxygen mixture or an Air/Oxygen mixture for a maximum of 72 hours during Non-Invasive Ventilation (NIV) and NIV-free sessions.

During NIV sessions, gas mixtures will be administered using a ventilator suitable for NIV with either He/O2 or Air/O2 and a NIV facemask.

Patients will be followed until hospital discharge and then contacted by phone up to the 6th month after randomization.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A respiratory stimulant that enhances respiration by acting as an agonist of peripheral chemoreceptors located on the carotid bodies. The drug increases arterial oxygen tension while decreasing arterial carbon dioxide tension in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. It may also prove useful in the treatment of nocturnal oxygen desaturation without impairing the quality of sleep.

A disease of chronic diffuse irreversible airflow obstruction. Subcategories of COPD include CHRONIC BRONCHITIS and PULMONARY EMPHYSEMA.

Hypertrophy and dilation of the RIGHT VENTRICLE of the heart that is caused by PULMONARY HYPERTENSION. This condition is often associated with pulmonary parenchymal or vascular diseases, such as CHRONIC OBSTRUCTIVE PULMONARY DISEASE and PULMONARY EMBOLISM.

A subcategory of CHRONIC OBSTRUCTIVE PULMONARY DISEASE. The disease is characterized by hypersecretion of mucus accompanied by a chronic (more than 3 months in 2 consecutive years) productive cough. Infectious agents are a major cause of chronic bronchitis.

A large increase in oxygen uptake by neutrophils and most types of tissue macrophages through activation of an NADPH-cytochrome b-dependent oxidase that reduces oxygen to a superoxide. Individuals with an inherited defect in which the oxidase that reduces oxygen to superoxide is decreased or absent (GRANULOMATOUS DISEASE, CHRONIC) often die as a result of recurrent bacterial infections.
