Long-term oxygen therapy improves survival in patients with severe hypoxia. However, some patients despite this oxygen, experience episodes of low oxygen levels (intermittent hypoxia) especially during sleep which may be harmful. In order to overcome this, the investigators have designed an auto-titrating oxygen system (called intelligent oxygen therapy) which automatically adjusts oxygen flow rates to maintain oxygen levels in patients already on oxygen. This study will invest...
Patients with lung disease experiencing difficulty breathing can be treated with oxygen therapy. This involves the delivery of "extra" oxygen by a face-mask or through small tubes placed in the nose called nasal prongs. This extra oxygen can have concentrations as high as 100% pure oxygen. The concentration of oxygen in normal air is only 21%. The high concentration of oxygen can help to provide enough oxygen for all of the organs in the body. Unfortunately, breathing 100%...
This study will evaluate patient comfort and oxygen delivery efficiency when providing supplemental oxygen through a nasal cannula to volunteers using an instrumented oxygen delivery system. The goals of the study are to evaluate different oxygen flow rates and oxygen delivery modes. In addition, the investigators will investigate if the system can detect apnea (cessation of breathing) and removal of the nasal cannula. The investigators will also investigate how well high flow ...
The aim of this study is to investigate the effects of supplemental oxygen on blood oxygenation at rest in Patients with severe to very severe COPD comparing the portable oxygen concentrator (Activox™ 4L) to a liquid continuous oxygen device (Companion®).
The purpose of this study is to compare heat and humidified oxygen with cold and dry oxygen in children with bronchiolitis. The hypotheses are that heating and humidifying inspired low flow supplemental oxygen will optimize mucociliary function thereby, 1) improve oxygenation, 2) decrease work of breathing, and 3) decrease length of hospital stay.
The purpose of this study is to compare differences in oxygen delivery between portable oxygen concentrators (POCs) and liquid oxygen (LOs) portable units, pose a question if POCs are equally effective as LOs in reducing exercise-induced hypoxaemia. DESIGN: Randomized, single-blind clinical trial.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate if supplemental oxygen during air travel can be reliably titrated using a Hypoxia-altitude simulation test (HAST). Also, the effect of oxygen supplementation given with the various oxygen equipment allowed for air travel is studied.
The main goal of this study is to determine if supplemental oxygen given only when the patient is inspiring (demand delivery) is more effective than constant-flow oxygen given during all phases of the breath regardless if the patient is breathing it in. A previous study in volunteers (NCT02886312) showed that the oxygen saturation in the blood and the concentration of oxygen breathed out from the lungs (end-tidal oxygen) was higher when given in demand (inhalation only) mode. A...
This study evaluates effects of high inspiratory oxygen on cerebral tissue oxygenation and patient recovery after carotid endarterectomy. Two group of patient undergoing to carotid with total intravenous anaesthesia will receive either 35% inspired oxygen or 100% oxygen.
To compare the efficacy of long-term use of nocturnal oxygen therapy (12 hours) with that of continuous, low-flow oxygen therapy (24 hours) in patients with chronic hypoxic lung disease.
Oxygen is routinely given to patients with common conditions such as COPD and heart failure. There is no evidence behind giving oxygen to patients specifically in heart failure due to a stiff heart. This study aims to explore the effect oxygen has on the ability of patients with chronic heart failure and the ability to exercise. Other common variables will be assessed such as heart rate and blood pressure to observe the response to varying concentrations of oxygen. The ...
In this small pilot study, participants (patients and healthy volunteers) will have blood drawn before and after the study intervention (hyperbaric chamber session or normal pressure oxygen breathing. This blood will be analyzed for neutrophil oxidative burst and cytokine analysis.
Investigators hypothesized that a relative low SpO2 directed oxygen therapy would reduced the mortality in patients staying longer than 72 hours in ICUs.
Study Question: In infants who are born at gestational ages of 23 0/7 to 27 6/7 weeks, does lowering the concentration of supplemental oxygen to target an arterial oxygen saturation by pulse oximetry (SpO2)of 85-89% compared with 91-95%, from the day of birth until the baby's first discharge home, increase the probability of survival without severe neurosensory disability to a corrected age of 18 months?
The use of 100% oxygen during the induction of general anesthesia is always preferable in order to have enough time to secure the airway by endotracheal intubation, because preoxygenation with a low oxygen concentration may reduce the safe time for apnea. However, using a low oxygen concentration during preoxygenation might prevent the formation of atelectasis. There is still no clear conclusion about the best oxygen concentration for preoxygenation. Our study is designed to ev...
Carbon monoxide poisoning still places a burden on the healthcare system worldwide. While oxygen therapy is the cornerstone treatment, the role and practical modalities of hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBO) remain controversial. This study aimed at comparing one session of HBO at 2 absolute atmosphere followed by 4 hours of normobaric oxygen therapy to 6 hours of normobaric oxygen therapy in adult victims of acute domestic carbon monoxide poisoning and without coma.
Maternal oxygen administration for concerning fetal heart rate tracing (FHT) patterns is common practice on Labor and Delivery units in the United States. Despite the broad use of oxygen, it is unclear if this practice is beneficial for the fetus. The purpose of this study is to compare oxygen to room air in patients with Category II fetal heart tracings with regard to neonatal acid-base status, subsequent tracings, and production of reactive oxygen species
The goal of this clinical research study is to compare high-flow oxygen, low-flow oxygen, high-flow air, and low-flow air in helping to decrease shortness of breath in cancer patients. Researchers also want to learn if these therapies can help to improve lung function and quality of life.
The intent of this study is to determine the difference in pharyngeal oxygen concentration in patients who have a natural airway (not intubated) using commonly available oxygen delivery systems. The investigators will test the hypothesis that oxygen concentration during the period of inspiration (FiO2) in the pharynx is dependent on oxygen delivery system design, even at high flow (15 liters/minute) oxygen delivery. Specific measurements include oxygen concentration at ...
The investigators will examine the relationship between post-operative oxygen consumption (using non-invasive measurement technology ) and complications in patients having contemporary major abdominal surgery. The investigators hypothesis is that major surgery may trigger a physiological stress response that results in an increase in post-operative metabolic demand and oxygen consumption (V̇O2) which must be met by an increased oxygen delivery (DO2). 1. To determine ...
The aim of this study is to compare the incidence and volume of postoperative pneumocephalus in patients receiving ventilation with 100% oxygen during the last stage of surgery versus a conventional 1:1 oxygen/air gas mixture.
This Phase 2 study aims to determine the feasibility of paramedic titration of oxygen delivery in adult patients who have been resuscitated from OHCA.
The purpose of this study is to determine if, in preterm infants < 37 weeks' gestation at birth receiving oxygen without ventilatory/CPAP support, oxygen environment (OE) compared with nasal cannula oxygen (NC), will decrease the number of episodes with oxygen saturations less than 85% of ≥10 seconds in a 48 hour cross over period on either intervention. This is a randomized cross-over pilot study with a 1:1 parallel allocation of infants to oxygen environment or nasal cannu...
Aim: To investigate the effect of high intra- and postoperative oxygen concentration (80%, as opposed to normally 30%) on pulmonary gas exchange and other pulmonary complications after abdominal surgery. Background: Previous studies have shown possible beneficial effects of high perioperative oxygen concentration on surgical wound infection and healing, but all pulmonary effects are not clarified. Change in perioperative PaO2/FiO2 and shunt-fraction, measured by a gas re...
Objectives: The objective of this study is to determine if any differences exist between the varying modes of portable oxygen delivery systems including liquid oxygen, a portable concentrator, portable devices filled at home from a concentrator, and medical grade compressed oxygen (either an M6 size or D size cylinder). Hypothesis: Patients who are prescribed LTOT will show similar physiologic responses to exercise when using differing modalities of portable oxyg...
