The objective of this study is to evaluate whether CPAP delivered by bubble CPAP resulted in a greater proportion of infants being successfully extubated when compared with management with ventilator derived CPAP.
There have been no published randomized trials comparing extubation failure rates of Bubble CPAP with conventional ventilator derived CPAP. Infants of gestation <32 weeks and of birth weight less than 1500 grams considered by the treating team to be ready for the initial extubation within first week of life were screened for enrolment. All eligible neonates were randomly allocated to bubble CPAP or conventional CPAP.The purpose of this study is to compare whether infants on Bubble CPAP had more chances of successful extubation as compared to infants put on Conventional CPAP.
Allocation: Randomized, Control: Active Control, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Prevention

Continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) has been used successfully to promote extubation in the premature infant population. The two methods of CPAP to be examined are currently used by...
The aim of this study is to compare the cardiovascular and respiratory effects of "higher" versus "equivalent" CPAP pressures post-extubation from high endotracheal airway pressures (EAP),...
This study is a randomized controlled study to compare if a a non-invasive neurally adjusted ventilatory assist (NIV-NAVA) is better than nasal continuous positive airway pressure (N-CPAP)...
This study is designed to test the hypothesis that among infants born at less than 30 weeks, weighing less than 1500 g at delivery, and receiving initial respiratory support non-invasively...
Acute effects of CPAP on diastolic function in patients with compensated heart failure (CHF) are unknown. The investigators hypothesized that acutely CPAP improves diastolic function, whic...
This study explores the association between specific insomnia symptoms (sleep onset, sleep maintenance and early morning awakenings symptoms) and self-efficacy (perceived self-confidence in the abilit...
Good adherence to continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) treatment improves the patient's quality of life and decreases the risk of cardiovascular disease. Previous studies that have analyzed the ...
The aim of this review is to clarify the association between obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and type 2 diabetes, and discuss the therapeutic role of continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) in type 2...
Residual sleepiness after continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) is a critical problem in some patients with obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS). However, nasal surgery is likely to reduce day...
Obstructive sleep apnoea syndrome is a common condition for which continuous positive airways pressure (CPAP) is the standard treatment. The condition affects a population of which a substantial propo...
Removal of an endotracheal tube from the patient.
Therapeutic practices which are not currently considered an integral part of conventional allopathic medical practice. They may lack biomedical explanations but as they become better researched some (PHYSICAL THERAPY MODALITIES; DIET; ACUPUNCTURE) become widely accepted whereas others (humors, radium therapy) quietly fade away, yet are important historical footnotes. Therapies are termed as Complementary when used in addition to conventional treatments and as Alternative when used instead of conventional treatment.
A severe irreversible decline in the ability of kidneys to remove wastes, concentrate URINE, and maintain ELECTROLYTE BALANCE; BLOOD PRESSURE; and CALCIUM metabolism. Renal failure, either acute (KIDNEY FAILURE, ACUTE) or chronic (KIDNEY FAILURE, CHRONIC), requires HEMODIALYSIS.
A heterogeneous condition in which the heart is unable to pump out sufficient blood to meet the metabolic need of the body. Heart failure can be caused by structural defects, functional abnormalities (VENTRICULAR DYSFUNCTION), or a sudden overload beyond its capacity. Chronic heart failure is more common than acute heart failure which results from sudden insult to cardiac function, such as MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION.
Failure of equipment to perform to standard. The failure may be due to defects or improper use.
