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

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...

A Conserved Distal Lung Regenerative Pathway in Acute Lung Injury.

Improved tools have led to a burgeoning understanding of lung regeneration in mice, but it is not yet known how these insights may be relevant to acute lung injury in humans. We report in detail two c...

Acute lung injury induced by intestinal ischemia and reperfusion is altered in obese female mice.

Acute lung injury (ALI) is a common complication after intestinal ischemia and reperfusion (I/R) injury that can lead to acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). We have previously demonstrated tha...

Targeting Transfusion-Related Acute Lung Injury: The Journey From Basic Science to Novel Therapies.

Transfusion-related acute lung injury is characterized by the onset of respiratory distress and acute lung injury following blood transfusion, but its pathogenesis remains poorly understood. Generally...

Kaempferol attenuates acute lung injury in caecal ligation and puncture model of sepsis in mice.

Kaempferol is a flavonoid and important part of the diet. Kaempferol has shown antioxidant, antiinflammatory and antidiabetic activities in various studies. However, protective potential of kaempferol...

Chitosan oligosaccharide ameliorates acute lung injury induced by blast injury through the DDAH1/ADMA pathway.

To investigate the protective effect of chitosan oligosaccharide (COS) on acute lung injury (ALI) caused by blast injury, and explore possible molecular mechanisms.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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).

RESPIRATORY MUSCLE contraction during INHALATION. The work is accomplished in three phases: LUNG COMPLIANCE work, that required to expand the LUNGS against its elastic forces; tissue resistance work, that required to overcome the viscosity of the lung and chest wall structures; and AIRWAY RESISTANCE work, that required to overcome airway resistance during the movement of air into the lungs. Work of breathing does not refer to expiration, which is entirely a passive process caused by elastic recoil of the lung and chest cage. (Guyton, Textbook of Medical Physiology, 8th ed, p406)
