The present study aims to compare various parameters reflecting patient-ventilator synchrony during standard pressure support (PS) and Neurally Adjusted Ventilatory assist (NAVA) in a group of patients receiving non invasive ventilation (NIV)for an episode of acute respiratory failure of various origin.
The present study aims to compare various parameters reflecting patient-ventilator synchrony during standard pressure support (PS) and Neurally Adjusted Ventilatory assist (NAVA) in a group of patients receiving non invasive ventilation (NIV)for an episode of acute respiratory failure of various origin. The subgroup of COPD patients will be analyzed separately. The effects of various setting of Neurally adjusted ventilatory assist on patient-ventilator interaction will also be explored.

The purpose of this study is to find out, whetehr it is possible to improve the ventilatory care of premature infants by using Neurally adjusted ventilatory assist (NAVA). Investigators s...
The aim of the current study is to compare the application neurally adjusted ventilatory assist (NAVA) to optimize pressure support ventilation in 12 pediatric patients.
This study aims to assess whether neurally adjusted ventilatory assist or proportional assist ventilation is more effective in infants born prematurely with evolving or established broncho...

Neurally adjusted ventilatory assist (NAVA) is expected to improve respiratory outcomes in preterm infants; however, it has not yet been evaluated. We investigated whether NAVA could improve respirato...
Although non-invasive forms of ventilation have recently spread in neonatology, invasive ventilation still plays a key role in the support of extremely low birth weight (ELBW) infants. The purpose of ...
Acute and chronic respiratory failures require immediate diagnosis and preferably individualized ventilation therapy. If possible, non-invasive ventilation should be considered to avoid complications ...
The term "respiratory insufficiency" (RI) describes the inability of an organism to maintain the gas exchange between the ambient air and its peripheral organs. This causes a hypoxia and hypercapnia. ...
Mechanical ventilation delivered to match the patient's efforts in breathing as detected by the interactive ventilation device.
Ventilatory support system using frequencies from 60-900 cycles/min or more. Three types of systems have been distinguished on the basis of rates, volumes, and the system used. They are high frequency positive-pressure ventilation (HFPPV); HIGH-FREQUENCY JET VENTILATION; (HFJV); and high-frequency oscillation (HFO).
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.
Mechanical devices used to produce or assist pulmonary ventilation.
Lung infections with the invasive forms of ASPERGILLUS, usually after surgery, transplantation, prolonged NEUTROPENIA or treatment with high-doses of CORTICOSTEROIDS. Invasive pulmonary aspergillosis can progress to CHRONIC NECROTIZING PULMONARY ASPERGILLOSIS or hematogenous spread to other organs.
Asthma COPD Cystic Fibrosis Pneumonia Pulmonary Medicine Respiratory Respiratory tract infections (RTIs) are any infection of the sinuses, throat, airways or lungs. They're usually caused by viruses, but they can also ...
COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease)
COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) is used for a number of conditions including chronic bronchitis and emphysema, which all lead to the airways in the lungs becoming damaged and thus narrower, making inhalation and exhalation harder...
