Cpap at Delivery Room for Preterm Infants

2014-07-23 21:11:37 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The objective of the study is to determine if CPAP applied within less than 15 min of life in the DR reduces the necessity of mechanical ventilation and surfactant during the first 5 days of life.

Description

A multicenter prospective cohort of inborn preterm infants, born at 8 public university NICU in Brazil, with birthweight 1000-1499 g, without malformations, not intubated at 15 minutes of life. Preterm infants will be randomly assigned at birth to an early treatment group (DR-CPAP), in which CPAP of 5 cm water pressure is applied within 15 minutes after birth by Neopuff, or to a routine group (RG), in which CPAP is applied when indicated by the assistant physician. After transfer to the NICU, nasal CPAP will be maintained with Hudson prongs

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

Mechanical ventilation delivered to match the patient's efforts in breathing as detected by the interactive ventilation device.

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.

Any method of artificial breathing that employs mechanical or non-mechanical means to force the air into and out of the lungs. Artificial respiration or ventilation is used in individuals who have stopped breathing or have RESPIRATORY INSUFFICIENCY to increase their intake of oxygen (O2) and excretion of carbon dioxide (CO2).
