Effects of Airway Conditioning Devices on Ventilator Associated Pneumonia:a Randomized Clinical Trial

2014-07-24 14:00:53 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The main hypothesis are:

1. Passive and Active-Passive airway conditioning devices reduce the incidence of ventilator associated pneumonia

2. Active-Passive airway conditioning devices reduce the incidence of endotracheal tube obstruction

3. Nurses' workload is reduced with Passive and Active-Passive airway conditioning devices

Biomarkers of Lung Injury With Low Tidal Volume Ventilation Compared With Airway Pressure Release Ventilation

Acute lung injury (ALI) and the acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) represent a spectrum of clinical syndromes of rapid respiratory system deterioration that are associated with bot...

Airway Pressure Release Ventilation in Acute Lung Injury

The purpose of this study is to compare airway pressure release ventilation (APRV) to conventional mechanical ventilation (MV) in patients with acute lung injury (ALI) to determine if APRV...

To Compare the Ischemic Pre-Conditioning and Post-Conditioning on Reperfusion Injury in Humans.

Reperfusion Injury occurs by the sudden blood flow to the injured and ischemic myocardium during restoration of blood flow either by Mechanical revascularization or thrombolysis. A phenome...

Metabolomic Study in Exhaled Breath Condensate of Thoracic Surgical Patients

Acute lung injury (ALI) following thoracic surgery remains a major source of morbidity and mortality after lung resection. One-lung ventilation (OLV) is usually required in thoracic surger...

Incidence of Acute Lung Injury in Children

Acute lung injury in children is a syndrome of rapid onset of acute respiratory failure and require admission into intensive care units (ICU) for advanced life support. There are almost no...

Apelin-13 Administration Protects Against LPS-Induced Acute Lung Injury by Inhibiting NF-κB Pathway and NLRP3 Inflammasome Activation.

Acute lung injury (ALI) is induced by a variety of external and internal factors and leads to acute progressive respiratory failure. Previous studies have shown that apelin-13 can decrease the acute l...

Calpain inhibition ameliorates scald burn-induced acute lung injury in rats.

The molecular pattern of severe burn-induced acute lung injury, characterized by cell structure damage and leukocyte infiltration, remains unknown. This study aimed to determine whether calpain, a pro...

Functional and morphological differences of the lung upon acute and chronic ozone exposure in mice.

Environmental air pollutants including ozone cause severe lung injury and aggravate respiratory diseases such as asthma and COPD. Here we compared the effect of ozone on respiratory epithelium injury,...

The Emerging Role of Neutrophils in Repair after Acute Lung Injury.

Neutrophils are key players in acute lung injury. Once recruited from the circulation, these cells release cytotoxic molecules that lead to tissue disruption, so their blockade has been advocated to p...

Ulinastatin protects rats from sepsis-induced acute lung injury by suppressing the JAK-STAT3 pathway.

Sepsis is usually accompanied by pulmonary inflammations, leading to acute lung injury. During this process, endogenous factors that play a regulatory role could be exploited to therapeutically allevi...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A rare but serious transfusion-related reaction in which fluid builds up in the lungs unrelated to excessively high infusion rate and/or volume (TRANSFUSION-ASSOCIATED CIRCULATORY OVERLOAD). Signs of Transfusion-Related Acute Lung Injury include pulmonary secretions; hypotension; fever; DYSPNEA; TACHYPNEA; TACHYCARDIA; and CYANOSIS.

Any disorder marked by obstruction of conducting airways of the lung. AIRWAY OBSTRUCTION may be acute, chronic, intermittent, or persistent.

Absence of air in the entire or part of a lung, such as an incompletely inflated neonate lung or a collapsed adult lung. Pulmonary atelectasis can be caused by airway obstruction, lung compression, fibrotic contraction, or other factors.

Damage to any compartment of the lung caused by physical, chemical, or biological agents which characteristically elicit inflammatory reaction. These inflammatory reactions can either be acute and dominated by NEUTROPHILS, or chronic and dominated by LYMPHOCYTES and MACROPHAGES.

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).
