Comparison Between Respiratory Therapy With Cough Assist Technique and Usual Respiratory Therapy in Intensive Care Patients Suffering of Neurologic Disorder

2014-07-23 21:08:47 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The present study aims to compare the efficiency of respiratory therapy with cough assist and the efficiency of usual respiratory therapy in intensive care patients suffering of neurologic disorder and cough ineffectiveness. The investigators hypothesis is that cough assist is more efficient than usual respiratory care in this group of patients.
