  • arterial
  • This study was therefore undertaken to determine whether inhibition of PNA can be achieved at the same airway or transpulmonary pressures during GV and PLV and to find out at what levels of arterial blood gases and pH inhibition occurs with these modes of ventilation in cats with healthy and surfactant-depleted lungs.

  • Pediatrics
  • Bradley Fuhrman, MD, a UB professor of pediatrics and anesthesia and chief of pediatric critical care at Women and Children's Hospital of Buffalo, simplified the entire process by discovering a way to apply liquid breathing using a standard hospital ventilator. (buffalo.edu)

  • ventilator
  • One of the major barriers to clinical application around the world was the fact that liquid breathing required a highly specialized ventilator. (buffalo.edu)

  • Effect of enhanced ultraviolet germicidal irradiation in the heating ventilation and air conditioning system on ventilator-associated pneumonia in a neonatal intensive care unit. (buffalo.edu)
  • patients
  • Especially in patients in whom an isolation of the injured lung is not possible, liquid ventilation offers a treatment opportunity for the complete organ. (asahq.org)
  • The building belongs to Alcor Life Extension Foundation , and behind the several inches of Kevlar and reinforced concrete that make up its walls, Alcor is home to 129 patients who are cryopreserved in vats of liquid nitrogen, waiting for the day when technology has advanced to the point that they can be revived to roam the Earth once more.
