Mechanically ventilated patients weaned by nurse-driven ventilator weaning protocol will have al least similar Ventilator, ICU, and Hospital Length Of Stay (LOS) compared to patients weaned by physician-initiated, non-protocol meth...
Deciding the optimal timing for extubation in patients who are mechanically ventilated can be challenging, and traditional weaning predictor tools are not accurate. Recent studies suggest that isolated sonographic assessment of the respiratory and cardiac function (ie diastolic function and filling pressure), in mechanically ventilated patients may assist in identifying patients at risk of weaning failure. Recently, the association of conventional echocardiography and lung ultr...
Introduction In patients assisted by mechanical ventilation, the Work Of Breathing (WOB) is shared between the patient and the ventilator. During weaning from mechanical ventilation, the WOB performed by the patient must be adequate and efficient to sustain spontaneous ventilation after extubation. The monitoring of WOB during weaning might allow a better management of the weaning process. Esophageal pressure (PES) is the reference technique to measure WOB but alternate tools h...
Patients with COPD who deteriorate to Respiratory Failure pose a challenge to the intensivist both in ventilating an obstructed patient and in weaning from mechanical ventilation. Currently there are no accepted extubation criteria in COPD patients that could predict successful weaning from mechanical ventilation. In this study we will attempt to correlate spirometric data to eventual weaning from mechanical ventilation.
Sedation is widely used in mechanically ventilated patients. Propofol, benzodiazepines and opioids are the most used drugs. The study hypothesis is that sedation with remifentanil (an opioid drug) could improved respiratory pattern and effort in mechanically ventilated patients with rapid shallow breathing or high respiratory rate.
Weaning of mechanically ventilated patient is a daily challenge in Intensive Care units. Several indexes have been employed to assess the patient's ability to recover efficient spontaneous breathing. As the diaphragm is the main respiratory muscle, direct measurement of diaphragmatic function as predictors of extubation success or failure have not been extensively evaluated. Ultrasound can easily access diaphragm thickness (tdi) in its zone of apposition during, tdi can represe...
The purpose of this study was to evaluate effects, safety and cost of midazolam used alone or sequential use of midazolam and propofol/dexmedetomidine for long-term sedation in critically ill, mechanically ventilated patients.
This trial enrolled all the adult patients who were mechanically ventilated for more than 48 hours and met all creteria for extubation. Patients who needed reintubation for upper aiway obstruction, neurological or hemodynamic alteration were excluded. The diaphragm ultrasound was performed during spontaneous breathing test or pressure support ventilation trial measuring the dipahragmatic excursion (DE) and the diaphragm thickening fraction (DTF) whithin 24 hours before extubati...
Respiratory muscle training (RMT) is considered a therapeutic strategy to improve respiratory muscle strength in mechanically ventilated (MV) patients and facilitates ventilator weaning. RMT aims at improving strength and endurance of respiratory muscles . However, scarce research exists regarding evaluation of RMT in MV patients and additionally studies differ in methods, RMT protocols and subjects included. There are not reports about Colombian studies evaluating RMT effects ...
The aim of this study is to compare two strategies of early enteral nutrition in terms of efficacy and complications in mechanically ventilated patients.
Weaning is an important process to gradually separate mechanically ventilated patients from ventilators. A good weaning strategy aims to early identify mechanically ventilated patients who are ready for extubation but not to prematurely extubate them. Spontaneous breathing trial (SBT) is a test to assess the patient's ability to breathe spontaneously when extubated. Several methods have been used to conduct an SBT, including T-piece breathing, low-level pressure support ventila...
Sleep disturbances frequently occur in intensive care unit (ICU) patients undergoing mechanical ventilation. In a previous study, sedative dose dexmedetomidine (median 0.6 microgram/kg/h) improved sleep quality in mechanically ventilated patients. However, for mechanically ventilated patients, light sedation is better than deep sedation for the outcomes, which is manifested as shortened length of ICU stay, shortened duration of mechanical ventilation, and decreased mortality. I...
Dexmedetomidine, a central and peripheral α2-receptor agonist distinct from GABA receptor for benzodiazepines and propofol, has been approved by the US Food and Drug Administration only for use up to 24 h in mechanically ventilated patients. The investigators aim to compare dexmedetomidine with propofol for sedation >24h in poly traumatized mechanically ventilated patients.
Ventilator Associated Pneumonia (VAP) is a common complication experienced by mechanically ventilated patients and within the framework of Respiratory Intensive Care Units. The AnapnoGuard system, developed by Hospitech Respiration Ltd. is a ventilation guard system that includes a number of unique characteristics. This study was designed to test the frequency VAP in mechanically ventilated ICU patients using the AnapnoGuard System.
Specific Aims: Aim 1: Evaluate the feasibility of intermittent feeding in intensive care unit patients who are mechanically ventilated. Aim 2: Evaluate the safety and patient tolerance of intermittent feeding in intensive care unit patients who are mechanically ventilated. Aim 3: Determine efficacy of intermittent feeding in provision of required nutrition in mechanically ventilated intensive care unit patients. Aim 4: Determine association of intermittent enter...
The objective of this study is to assess the effects of a daily enteral supplementation with probiotics within a population of critically ill, mechanically ventilated patients. Especially, the effects of probiotics on mortality rate in intensive care medicine will be analysed.
To evaluate the use of sonographic inferior caval vein assessment in mechanically ventilated septic patients. Volume assessment in mechanically ventilated patients with inflammation is of major importance to guide fluid therapy. The researchers investigated whether measurement of caval vein diameter correlates with invasively assessed volume-based hemodynamic parameters.
Levosimendan is a relatively new drug that improves cardiac contractility in patients with heart failure. Its main mechanism of action is enhanced binding of calcium to the myocardial contractile proteins. Recent data from our lab showed that levosimendan improves contractility of human diaphragm in vitro (muscle fibers from COPD patient diaphragm) and in vivo (healthy subjects). Accordingly, levosimendan may appear of value in the treatment of disorders associated with impaire...
To assess the correlations among the physical functional performance, muscle strength, respiratory muscle strength and the ventilator weaning rate.
- Adequate sedation is of paramount importance to avoid stress and pain in mechanically ventilated patients. It is usually achieved by infusing sedatives (benzodiazepine) and analgesic (opiate) drugs. - This combined sedation may not be sufficient in some instances. - The aim of this study is to evaluate whether addition of a third substance, ketamine, allows the achievement of better sedation and avoids the use of neuromuscular blocking agent...
Prospective, Randomized clinical trial study will be carried out in intensive care unit in Ain Shams University Hospitals on 40 forty septic patients admitted to ICU and mechanically ventilated.
Prospective, multicenter observational study to collect Escherichia coli (E. coli) isolates originating from mechanically ventilated intensive care unit (ICU) patients; in order to characterize phenotype and genotype of E. coli strains retrieved from the lower respiratory tract of ventilated patients.
The purpose of this study is to determine whether the homeopathic remedy Kali Bichromium is effective in reducing the amount of tracheal secretions in patients intubated with a conventional endotracheal tube and receiving controlled mechanical ventilation in the ICU setting.
The purpose of the study is to determine to what extent the abdominal muscles contribute to airway pressure, in order to investigate the correlation between muscles weakness and extubation outcome in mechanically ventilated patients. In addition the reliability of the sonographic measurements will be assessed.
