Optimal Inspiratory Pressure for Facemask Pressure-controlled Ventilation in Children

The purpose of this study is to find an optimal inspiratory pressure to provide adequate tidal volume and prevent gastric insufflation in pediatric patients. The children under 5 years ol...

Proportional Assist Ventilation vs Pressure Support Ventilation

In this study, we want to compare two different kinds of artificial ventilation to see if one encourages faster weaning from breathing support and if one provides better sleep quality. The...

Impact of a Nocturnal Pressure Controlled Ventilation on Mechanical Ventilation Weaning Duration in Patients With Chronic Obstructive Respiratory Diseases

all patients with weaning criteria, spontaneous breathing test will be done. If patient is able to have spontaneous ventilation with maximum of 16 cm of H2O of pressure support, he could b...

Minimal Occlusive Pressure With Cuffed ETTs: A Comparison of Two Different Techniques to Ensure a Tracheal Seal

In the past 5 years cuffed endotracheal tubes (ETT) have become the standard of care in pediatrics. However, hyperinflation of the cuff can compromise the tracheal mucosal perfusion while ...

Manual Ventilation Versus Pressure Controlled Mechanical Ventilation in Children

The investigator will compare the feasibility of manual ventilation and pressure-controlled mechanical ventilation during facemask ventilation in children. The hypothesis is that the incid...

Clinical management of pressure control ventilation: An algorithmic method of patient ventilatory management to address "forgotten but important variables".

Pressure controlled ventilation is a common mode of ventilation used to manage both adult and pediatric populations. However, there is very little evidence that distinguishes the efficacy of pressure ...

Cuffed vs. uncuffed tracheal tubes in children: a randomised controlled trial comparing leak, tidal volume and complications.

Cuffed tracheal tubes are increasingly used in paediatric anaesthetic practice. This study compared tidal volume and leakage around cuffed and uncuffed tracheal tubes in children who required standard...

A formal description of middle ear pressure-regulation.

Middle ear (ME) pressure-regulation (MEPR) is a homeostatic mechanism that maintains the ME-environment pressure-gradient (MEEPG) within a range optimized for "normal" hearing.

Modification of Tracheal Cuff Shape and Continuous Cuff Pressure Control to Prevent Microaspiration in an Ex Vivo Pig Tracheal Two-Lung Model.

Microaspiration of subglottic secretions plays a pivotal role in ventilator-associated pneumonia. Impact of endotracheal tube cuff material and shape on tracheal sealing performance remains debated. T...

Effect of inspiratory synchronization during pressure-controlled ventilation on lung distension and inspiratory effort.

In pressure-controlled (PC) ventilation, tidal volume (V T) and transpulmonary pressure (P L ) result from the addition of ventilator pressure and the patient's inspiratory effort. PC modes can be cla...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The capability of the LUNGS to distend under pressure as measured by pulmonary volume change per unit pressure change. While not a complete description of the pressure-volume properties of the lung, it is nevertheless useful in practice as a measure of the comparative stiffness of the lung. (From Best & Taylor's Physiological Basis of Medical Practice, 12th ed, p562)

The pressure within a CARDIAC VENTRICLE. Ventricular pressure waveforms can be measured in the beating heart by catheterization or estimated using imaging techniques (e.g., DOPPLER ECHOCARDIOGRAPHY). The information is useful in evaluating the function of the MYOCARDIUM; CARDIAC VALVES; and PERICARDIUM, particularly with simultaneous measurement of other (e.g., aortic or atrial) pressures.

The pressure within the CARDIAC ATRIUM. It can be measured directly by using a pressure catheter (see HEART CATHETERIZATION). It can be also estimated using various imaging techniques or other pressure readings such as PULMONARY CAPILLARY WEDGE PRESSURE (an estimate of left atrial pressure) and CENTRAL VENOUS PRESSURE (an estimate of right atrial pressure).

Techniques for effecting the transition of the respiratory-failure patient from mechanical ventilation to spontaneous ventilation, while meeting the criteria that tidal volume be above a given threshold (greater than 5 ml/kg), respiratory frequency be below a given count (less than 30 breaths/min), and oxygen partial pressure be above a given threshold (PaO2 greater than 50mm Hg). Weaning studies focus on finding methods to monitor and predict the outcome of mechanical ventilator weaning as well as finding ventilatory support techniques which will facilitate successful weaning. Present methods include intermittent mandatory ventilation, intermittent positive pressure ventilation, and mandatory minute volume ventilation.

Application of positive pressure to the inspiratory phase when the patient has an artificial airway in place and is connected to a ventilator.
