Intrabronchial Airway Pressures in Intubated Patients During Bronchoscopy

2014-08-27 03:15:31 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of this study is to examine changes in ventilation and airway pressures during conventional bronchoscopy of intubated patients.

Description

Mechanically ventilated patients often need bronchoscopy as a diagnostic procedure or for visually directed elimination of secretions. Partial endotracheal tube occlusion by the bronchoscope increases airflow resistance. Inhibition of inspiratory flow may be compensated for by augmented inspiratory pressure. Reduced expiratory flow however, cannot be compensated for by most ventilators and could lead to higher airway - and intrathoracic pressures that are not detected by pressure transducers in the ventilator tubing. In this study we compare changes in ventilation, airway pressures, ventilator pressures and blood gases during bronchoscopy of intubated patients in both volume controlled and pressure controlled ventilation. Our hypothesis are that 1) increased resistance in the tube during bronchoscopy leads to high intrabronchial airway pressures when the ventilator is in volume controlled mode, and 2) when the ventilator is in pressure controlled mode, increased resistance in the tube during bronchoscopy leads to reduced Tidal Volume and moderately increased paCO2.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A syndrome characterized by progressive life-threatening RESPIRATORY INSUFFICIENCY in the absence of known LUNG DISEASES, usually following a systemic insult such as surgery or major TRAUMA.

A chronic lung disease developed after OXYGEN INHALATION THERAPY or mechanical ventilation (VENTILATION, MECHANICAL) usually occurring in certain premature infants (INFANT, PREMATURE) or newborn infants with respiratory distress syndrome (RESPIRATORY DISTRESS SYNDROME, NEWBORN). Histologically, it is characterized by the unusual abnormalities of the bronchioles, such as METAPLASIA, decrease in alveolar number, and formation of CYSTS.

Acute respiratory illness in humans caused by the Muerto Canyon virus whose primary rodent reservoir is the deer mouse Peromyscus maniculatus. First identified in the southwestern United States, this syndrome is characterized most commonly by fever, myalgias, headache, cough, and rapid respiratory failure.

A species of PNEUMOVIRUS causing an important respiratory infection in cattle. Symptoms include fever, conjunctivitis, and respiratory distress.

An acute hypersensitivity reaction due to exposure to a previously encountered ANTIGEN. The reaction may include rapidly progressing URTICARIA, respiratory distress, vascular collapse, systemic SHOCK, and death.
