Early mechanical ventilation, if delivered with injurious settings, can lead to pulmonary complications, such as acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). Mechanical ventilation in the emergency department (ED) has been studied infrequently when compared to the intensive care unit; however, data suggests that ED-based mechanical ventilation has significant room for improvement and may also be a causative factor in ARDS incidence.
The investigator will compare the feasibility of manual ventilation and pressure-controlled mechanical ventilation during facemask ventilation in children. The hypothesis is that the incidence of gastric insufflation would be lower during pressure-controlled mechanical ventilation when compared to manual ventilation.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate if the variability of biological signals, such as heart rate and temperature, can predict weaning from mechanical ventilation in patients with failure to wean.
The mechanical ventilation strategy has changed over years worldwide. Several international researches have been conducted to study the association of the use of mechanical ventilation with clinical outcomes. In this prospective, multicenter, cross-sectional survey, the practice of mechanical ventilation among patients with severe brain injury will be investigated in 70 intensive care units in China.
The aim of this multicenter, randomized controlled trial is to evaluate the weaning time from mechanical ventilation comparing non-variable PSV, variable PSV, and Smart CareTM. This study is a multicenter randomized controlled open trial comparing variable, non-variable pressure support ventilation and Smart CareTM in patients receiving mechanical ventilation for more than 24 hours who are able to be weaned. The aim of the study is to determine the duration of weaning from me...
To prospectively assess the mechanical ventilation management when its provided by Emergency Physicians in French Hospital, and to assess complications and outcome of these patients. The study could be measure the proportion of patients developing an Acute Respiratory Failure Distress after a take care of by French Emergency Departments.
Hospital-acquired pneumonia (HAP) in patients in intensive care often requires the mechanical ventilation (MV). Management and weaning from MV are given by specificity of this type of pulmonary inflammation. Enrolled in the retrospective, observational study were all patients older than 18 years staying at the ICU of University Hospital in Olomouc, between 1 January 2011 and 31 December 2016. The determination of the parameters of the MV, ICU length of stay, hospital length of ...
Background: Patients that suffer from respiratory failure and need mechanical ventilation are at risk of further deterioration due to complications induced by progression of lung disease or the mechanical ventilation. The complications usually develop in a progressive manner, but are currently detected relatively late, when there is already severe and life threatening deterioration in patient oxygenation and sometimes irreversible damages. Objective:To measure chest wall dynam...
The purpose of this study is to demonstrate that mechanical ventilation guided by the diaphragm EMG signal (also know as neurally adjusted ventilatory assist [NAVA]) is superior compared to pressure support and pressure control ventilation.
Sedation is very important in critical care. Critically ill patients are submitted to many stressor factors that have potential to affect longterm outcomes. However, oversedation is associated with increased morbidity, including increased time of mechanical ventilation and ICU stay and longterm psychological complications. Daily interruption of sedation is associated with less time under mechanical ventilation and less posttraumatic stress disorder. Intermittent sedation, when ...
This study is designed to evaluate the relationship between diaphragm activity during mechanical ventilation and the development of ventilator-induced diaphragm dysfunction (VIDD). Diaphragm structure, activity, and function are monitored longitudinally over the first 7 days of mechanical ventilation.
To assess the potential benefits on mechanical ventilation plateau pressure of pressure controlled mode versus volume controlled mode for laparoscopic bariatric surgery in obese patients (BMI > 35). High plateau pressures encountered in obese patients due to their reduced pulmonary compliance could be lowered using pressure controlled mechanical ventilation.
To evaluate whether EELI, RVD, GI were good predictor for weaning from mechanical ventilation
A randomised study to assess the effectiveness of ambulatory adaptation to non-invasive mechanical ventilation in patient with hypercapnic respiratory failure secondary to neuromuscular diseases or alterations in thoracic cage in comparison with hospital adaptation.
This study evaluates the influence of alveolar recruitment maneuver, protocolized liberation from respiratory support and monitoring of Integrated Pulmonary Index on the duration of the mechanical ventilation and the number of pulmonary complications in the early postoperative period after cardiac surgery.
Patients residing in the intensive care unit typically receive mechanical ventilatory support. Selecting the appropriate level of mechanical ventilation is not trivial, and it has been shown that lung protective settings can reduce mortality in patients with lung injury. Despite being a life- saving therapy, duration of mechanical ventilation should be kept at a minimum to reduce effects of immobilization, long-term sedation, patient discomfort, risk of ventilator associated pn...
The purpose of this international, multicenter service review is to describe and compare ventilation management in patients at risk of acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) versus patients not at risk and patients with established ARDS, and to ascertain whether certain ventilator settings and ventilation parameters are associated with pulmonary complications or development of ARDS after start of ventilation in patients in intensive care units (ICUs) in Asian countries. ...
The main purpose of the present study was to explore the weaning failure rate from invasive mechanical ventilation and to indentify risk factors of weaning failure.
The aim of this study is to study the combined impact of mechanical ventilation and sepsis on the human diaphragm in order to establish the neutral, protective or destructive character of mechanical ventilation by studying the diameter of the fibers, activation of proteolytic systems, inhibition of protein synthesis, tissue inflammation as well as contractile function.
PALIVE 1 is an observational multicenter study on mechanical ventilation strategies used in children with an acute lung injury (ALI). The objective of the study is to describe mechanical ventilation strategies in children with an ALI. Our hypothesis is that daily clinical practice is heterogenous among pediatric intensivists as few pediatric data exists on optimal mechanical ventilation strategies in this group of patients. Furthermore, different strategies may affect patien...
Mechanical ventilation has been known to produce changes in the flow of blood through the major blood vessels in the body. These changes may go undetected, but with continuous arterial blood pressure measurements, changes in the arterial waveform can be visualized. Although we know that these arterial pressure variations occur during mechanical ventilation, little is known about the effects of various modes of mechanical ventilation on these changes. The most common modes of ve...
Hypothesis: A protocolized algorithm for sedation in critically ill patients on mechanical ventilation can decrease ventilator days, costs and improve outcome. This is a multicenter observational-interventional study on critically ill patients who require mechanical ventilation for more than 48 hours, involving 13 ICU in Chile. There are two periods (groups): a descriptive phase of sedation practices, and an interventional period in which an analgesia-based, goal-directed, nu...
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.
The purpose of the study is to evaluate variation of BNP in non invasive mechanical ventilated patients with severe acute respiratory failure.
The purpose of this study is to compare mechanical ventilation following advice from the Beacon Caresystem to that of routine care in patients from the state of requiring invasive mechanical ventilation until successful extubation. The Beacon Caresystem will be compared to routine care to investigate whether use of the system results in similar care and reduced time for weaning from mechanical ventilation.
