Incidence of Acute Lung Injury in Children

2014-07-23 21:08:48 | BioPortfolio

Summary

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 information on epidemiology of acute lung injury. Published studies do not have information for an entire year and none of them have evaluated the degree of oxygenation failure under standard ventilator settings. The investigators will perform a 1-year prospective audit of all patients admitted with acute lung injury in a network of pediatric ICUs in Spain.

The lung rescue unit-Does a dedicated intensive care unit for venovenous extracorporeal membrane oxygenation improve survival to discharge?

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Lung damage that is caused by the adverse effects of PULMONARY VENTILATOR usage. The high frequency and tidal volumes produced by a mechanical ventilator can cause alveolar disruption and PULMONARY EDEMA.

Serious INFLAMMATION of the LUNG in patients who required the use of PULMONARY VENTILATOR. It is usually caused by cross bacterial infections in hospitals (NOSOCOMIAL INFECTIONS).

Determination, by measurement or comparison with a standard, of the correct value of each scale reading on a meter or other measuring instrument; or determination of the settings of a control device that correspond to particular values of voltage, current, frequency or other output.

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

Research carried out by nurses, generally in clinical settings, in the areas of clinical practice, evaluation, nursing education, nursing administration, and methodology.
