Diving and the risk of barotrauma. (1/57)

STUDY OBJECTIVES: Pulmonary barotrauma (PBT) of ascent is a feared complication in compressed air diving. Although certain respiratory conditions are thought to increase the risk of suffering PBT and thus should preclude diving, in most cases of PBT, risk factors are described as not being present. The purpose of our study was to evaluate factors that possibly cause PBT. DESIGN: We analyzed 15 consecutive cases of PBT with respect to dive factors, clinical and radiologic features, and lung function. They were compared with 15 cases of decompression sickness without PBT, which appeared in the same period. RESULTS: Clinical features of PBT were arterial gas embolism (n = 13), mediastinal emphysema (n = 1), and pneumothorax (n = 1). CT of the chest (performed in 12 cases) revealed subpleural emphysematous blebs in 5 cases that were not detected in preinjury and postinjury chest radiographs. A comparison of predive lung function between groups showed significantly lower midexpiratory flow rates at 50% and 25% of vital capacity in PBT patients (p < 0.05 and p < 0.02, respectively). CONCLUSIONS: These results indicate that divers with preexisting small lung cysts and/or end-expiratory flow limitation may be at risk of PBT.  (+info)

Ventilation with lower tidal volumes as compared with traditional tidal volumes for acute lung injury and the acute respiratory distress syndrome. The Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome Network. (2/57)

BACKGROUND: Traditional approaches to mechanical ventilation use tidal volumes of 10 to 15 ml per kilogram of body weight and may cause stretch-induced lung injury in patients with acute lung injury and the acute respiratory distress syndrome. We therefore conducted a trial to determine whether ventilation with lower tidal volumes would improve the clinical outcomes in these patients. METHODS: Patients with acute lung injury and the acute respiratory distress syndrome were enrolled in a multicenter, randomized trial. The trial compared traditional ventilation treatment, which involved an initial tidal volume of 12 ml per kilogram of predicted body weight and an airway pressure measured after a 0.5-second pause at the end of inspiration (plateau pressure) of 50 cm of water or less, with ventilation with a lower tidal volume, which involved an initial tidal volume of 6 ml per kilogram of predicted body weight and a plateau pressure of 30 cm of water or less. The primary outcomes were death before a patient was discharged home and was breathing without assistance and the number of days without ventilator use from day 1 to day 28. RESULTS: The trial was stopped after the enrollment of 861 patients because mortality was lower in the group treated with lower tidal volumes than in the group treated with traditional tidal volumes (31.0 percent vs. 39.8 percent, P=0.007), and the number of days without ventilator use during the first 28 days after randomization was greater in this group (mean [+/-SD], 12+/-11 vs. 10+/-11; P=0.007). The mean tidal volumes on days 1 to 3 were 6.2+/-0.8 and 11.8+/-0.8 ml per kilogram of predicted body weight (P<0.001), respectively, and the mean plateau pressures were 25+/-6 and 33+/-8 cm of water (P<0.001), respectively. CONCLUSIONS: In patients with acute lung injury and the acute respiratory distress syndrome, mechanical ventilation with a lower tidal volume than is traditionally used results in decreased mortality and increases the number of days without ventilator use.  (+info)

An approach to ventilation in acute respiratory distress syndrome. (3/57)

Appropriate management of patients with acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) represents a challenge for physicians working in the critical care environment. Significant advances have been made in understanding the pathophysiology of ARDS. There is also an increasing appreciation of the role of ventilator-induced lung injury (VILI). VILI is most likely related to several different aspects of ventilator management: barotrauma due to high peak airway pressures, lung overdistension or volutrauma due to high transpulmonary pressures, alveolar membrane damage due to insufficient positive end expiratory pressure levels and oxygen-related cell toxicity. Various lung protective strategies have been suggested to minimize the damage caused by conventional modes of ventilation. These include the use of pressure- and volume-limited ventilation, the use of the prone position in the management of ARDS, and extracorporeal methods of oxygen delivery and carbon dioxide removal. Although the death rate resulting from ARDS has been declining over the past 10 years, there is no evidence that any specific treatment or change in approach to ventilation is the cause of this improved survival.  (+info)

Acute confusion secondary to pneumocephalus in an elderly patient. (4/57)

PRESENTATION: an 83-year-old man was admitted to hospital with acute confusion 3 days after a direct flight from Australia. OUTCOME: computed tomography (CT) brain scan and magnetic resonance imaging head scan revealed the cause to be pneumocephalus, apparently the result of barotrauma caused by Valsalva manoeuvres when he attempted to unblock his nose during the flight. After 5 days of nursing in the vertical position the patient's Abbreviated Mental Score returned to normal. A CT brain scan 6 weeks later showed complete resolution of the pneumocephalus.  (+info)

Neurologic complications of scuba diving. (5/57)

Recreational scuba diving has become a popular sport in the United States, with almost 9 million certified divers. When severe diving injury occurs, the nervous system is frequently involved. In dive-related barotrauma, compressed or expanding gas within the ears, sinuses and lungs causes various forms of neurologic injury. Otic barotrauma often induces pain, vertigo and hearing loss. In pulmonary barotrauma of ascent, lung damage can precipitate arterial gas embolism, causing blockage of cerebral blood vessels and alterations of consciousness, seizures and focal neurologic deficits. In patients with decompression sickness, the vestibular system, spinal cord and brain are affected by the formation of nitrogen bubbles. Common signs and symptoms include vertigo, thoracic myelopathy with leg weakness, confusion, headache and hemiparesis. Other diving-related neurologic complications include headache and oxygen toxicity.  (+info)

Cancer mortality after nasopharyngeal radium irradiation in the Netherlands: a cohort study. (6/57)

BACKGROUND: Nasopharyngeal radium irradiation (NRI) was used widely from 1940 through 1970 to treat otitis serosa in children and barotrauma in airmen and submariners. We assessed whether NRI-exposed individuals were at higher risk for cancer-related deaths than were nonexposed individuals. METHODS: We conducted a retrospective cohort study of all-cause and cancer-related mortality in 5358 NRI-exposed subjects and in 5265 frequency-matched nonexposed subjects, who as children were treated at nine ear, nose, and throat clinics in The Netherlands from 1945 through 1981. We recorded personal and medical data from original patient medical records and assessed vital status through follow-up at municipal population registries. Risk of mortality was evaluated by standardized mortality ratios (SMRs). All statistical tests were two-sided. RESULTS: The average radiation doses were 275, 10.9, 1.8, and 1.5 cGy for the nasopharynx, pituitary, brain, and thyroid, respectively. The median follow-up was 31.6 years. Three hundred two NRI-exposed subjects had died, with 269.2 deaths expected (SMR = 1.1; 95% confidence interval [CI] = 1.0 to 1.3); among nonexposed subjects, 315 died, with 283.5 deaths expected (SMR = 1.1; 95% CI = 0.99 to 1.2). Cancer-related deaths of 96 exposed subjects (SMR = 1.2; 95% CI = 0.95 to 1.4) and 87 nonexposed subjects (SMR = 1.0; 95% CI = 0.8 to 1.3) were documented. There were no excess deaths from cancers of the head and neck area among exposed subjects. However, there were excess deaths from cancers of lymphoproliferative and hematopoietic origin (SMR = 1.9; 95% CI = 1.1 to 3.0), mainly from non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (SMR = 2.6; 95% CI = 1.0 to 5.3). We found no evidence that breast cancer deaths were less than expected (SMR = 1.7; 95% CI = 0.9 to 2.8) in contrast to an earlier study. CONCLUSIONS: Our findings do not indicate an increased cancer mortality risk in a population exposed to NRI in childhood. More prolonged follow-up of this and other NRI cohorts is recommended.  (+info)

Proportional assist ventilation (PAV): a significant advance or a futile struggle between logic and practice? (7/57)

Continuous left hemidiaphragm sign revisited: a case of spontaneous pneumopericardium and literature review. (8/57)

In pneumopericardium, a rare but potentially life threatening differential diagnosis of chest pain with a broad variety of causes, rapid diagnosis and adequate treatment are crucial. In upright posteroanterior chest radiography, the apical limit of a radiolucent rim, outlining both the left ventricle and the right atrium, lies at the level of the pulmonary artery and ascending aorta, reflecting the anatomical limits of the pericardium. The band of gas surrounding the heart may outline the normally invisible parts of the diaphragm, producing the continuous left hemidiaphragm sign in an upright lateral chest radiograph. If haemodynamic conditions are stable, the underlying condition should be treated and the patient should be monitored closely. Acute haemodynamic deterioration should prompt rapid further investigation and cardiac tamponade must be actively ruled out. Spontaneous pneumopericardium in a 20 year old man is presented, and its pathophysiology described.  (+info)

Looking for online definition of atmospheric inner ear barotrauma in the Medical Dictionary? atmospheric inner ear barotrauma explanation free. What is atmospheric inner ear barotrauma? Meaning of atmospheric inner ear barotrauma medical term. What does atmospheric inner ear barotrauma mean?
Barotrauma is tissue damage due to differences in pressure in the body with the air pressure around it. The most common Barotrauma is Ear Barotrauma. The condition occurs when the eardrum becomes tense and attracted due to differences in pressure inside and outside the ear. Under normal circumstances, the air pressure on both sides of the eardrum should be the same, so that it can function properly. Air pressure regulator in the ear is played by an eustachian tube that is behind the eardrum. When the tube is blocked, there is a difference of pressure on the inside and outside of the ear, so that there is barotrauma. Barotauma is characterized by a distressed eardrum or stretched so that the ears are painful and clogged so that hearing will be reduced ...

Previous research has shown that releasing sport-caught Yelloweye Rockfish Sebastes ruberrimus with a deepwater-release mechanism (DRM) can alleviate anatomical damage due to barotrauma. However, it is unknown if a Yelloweye Rockfish remains a viable member of the population and reproduces in subsequent years following a barotrauma event and recompression with a DRM. The objectives of my study were to: 1) determine if Yelloweye Rockfish were able to reproduce one to two years following known forced decompression and recompression event(s); and 2) evaluate if barotrauma and recompression affected the quality of developing embryos. In 2010, Yelloweye Rockfish were sampled from an isolated reef in Prince William Sound, Alaska. Fifteen females tagged in 2008 and 2009 were recaptured in 2010, and reproductive status was identified by visual observation of the gonads and hematological sampling (i.e., vitellogenin and calcium²⁺ plasma concentrations).

Ear Barotrauma is an ear health condition which causes discomfort due to pressure changes in the ear. Symptoms of the condition include dizziness, pain in the ear, and slight hearing loss. It is important to seek treatment from a hear care specialist if these symptoms persist for longer than a week.
A look at treatment and prevention of ear barotrauma. This type of ear damage is caused by a difference in pressure between the inside of the ear and the air around you.
Only overt extraalveolar air is covered in this chapter. The reader is referred to Chapter 42 for a discussion of lung damage at the tissue or subcellular level related to mechanical lung distension and the application of positive pressure to the airways. Because data from laboratory studies are covered extensively in that discussion, this chapter deals primarily with barotrauma as a complication in patients, referring mainly to the adult clinical literature. As will be apparent, although the latter is replete with anecdotes and observational reports, this focus primarily on human data means that the evidence base in terms of prospective studies and hard data available to the clinician is remarkably limited. Spontaneous pneumothorax and other forms of extraalveolar air encountered in patients who are not intubated or receiving mechanical ventilation are not dealt with extensively here, nor is decompression-related barotrauma or bronchopleural fistula complicating lung resection. ...
Have you heard of barotrauma? Its a condition experienced by some deep water fish that are brought quickly to the surface. Fish experiencing barotrauma often sustain serious injuries, and upon release, are unable to swim or dive back to depth. Therefore, the survival rates of caught and released deep sea fish are low.

Barotrauma of the ear occurs when the eardrum becomes stretched and tense. Barotrauma of the Ear causes ear pain and dulled hearing.
NEWPORT, Ore. - Research has shown that carefully recompressing rockfish that have been brought up from the ocean floor may help them temporarily recover from the rapid change in pressure, but scientists have been uncertain whether there were any long-lasting effects on the fish.. Oregon State University researcher Alena Pribyl is completing one of the first studies to look at the long-term effects on rockfish of barotrauma, a series of physiological changes caused by the expansion of gas in the fishes swim bladders as a result of lower water pressure at the surface. Bulging eyes, tight gill membranes and an everted esophagus are among the symptoms.. Pribyls research suggests that the fish can, indeed, survive as long as 31 days - at least, in captivity - despite experiencing the noticeable effects of barotrauma.. What happens when a rockfish is brought up from depth is that the pressure change causes the gas within the swim bladder to expand, said Pribyl, a doctoral candidate in fisheries ...

Barotrauma: Any injury, typically of the ears or lungs, caused by a differential between the ambient pressure and the pressure in a gas-filled space in the body. If gas is trapped in a closed space, it will be compressed if the ambient pressure increases (such as during the descent phase of a dive) and will expand if the ambient pressure decreases (such as during ascent). Barotrauma injuries of descent include ear squeeze, tympanic membrane rupture and sinus squeeze. Injuries of ascent include pulmonary barotrauma, which can result in air embolism, pneumothorax and pneumomediastinum ...
The same conditions that cause spontaneous pneumothorax can be deadly in the increased ambient pressures of diving - and even in the pressure changes that take place in pressurized aircraft. Awareness of these conditions that can lead to spontaneous pneumothorax might aid in the reduction of the risk of burst lung and cerebral arterial gas embolism.. Some of these conditions and diseases include:. Asthma, COPD, mucoviscidosis (cystic fibrosis), Pneumocystis carinii, tb, bronchiolitis (smokers), viral lower airway disease, HIV infection, bronchial atresia, sports blunt trauma, weight lifting, metastatic tumors, catamenia (perimenstrual), empyema, bullous emphysema (juvenile, apical, generalized), Marfans syndrome, Schistosome infestation, Pregnancy, cryptogenic fibrosing alveolitis, and pulmonary histiocytosis X, Congenital bronchopulmonary cystic disease, vibroacoustic disease, alveolar proteinosis, bronchiectasis.

Arterial gas embolism (AGE), which is gas bubbles in the bloodstream. In the context of DCI these may form either as a result of bubble nucleation and growth by dissolved gas into the blood on depressurisation, which is a subset of DCS above, or by gas entering the blood mechanically as a result of pulmonary barotrauma. Pulmonary barotrauma is a rupturing of lung tissue by expansion of breathing gas held in the lungs during depressurisation. This may typically be caused by an underwater diver ascending while holding the breath after breathing at ambient pressure, ambient pressure escape from a submerged submarine without adequate exhalation during the ascent, or the explosive decompression of an aircraft cabin or other pressurised environment ...
Evaluation of a ventilation strategy to prevent barotrauma in patients at high risk for acute respiratory distress syndrome Academic Article ...
Objective. Barotrauma is defined as a tissue damage resulting from the direct effect of pressure. It in divers results from the interplay between internal physiologic pressure levels and pressure levels in the water surrounding the diver. During immersions the hyperbaric pressure forces blood and tissue fluids into the air-filled spaces until ambient pressure; similarly expansion of trapped air cause barotrauma. For a diver to avoid barotrauma, the pressure in air-filled space must be equalized in ambient pressure. In this study we evaluated morphological and clinical alteration of nose predisposing barotraumas like: septal deviation, turbinate hypertrophy, chronic sinusitis and nasal allergy ...
If the air pressure outside the ear quickly increases then this pushes the eardrum inwards which can be painful. The tensed eardrum also cannot vibrate as well as it should and so you may also have dulled hearing. To relieve the tensed eardrum, the pressure inside the middle ear has to rise quickly too. Air needs to travel up the Eustachian tube into the middle ear to equalise the pressure.. The most common example of barotrauma affects some air travellers. As a plane descends to land, the air pressure becomes higher. This pushes the eardrum inwards. If the pressure inside the middle ear is not equalised quickly then you can get ear pain. Other situations where air pressure may quickly rise outside the ear are during scuba diving, diving to the bottom of a swimming pool, or rapidly descending in a lift (elevator).. ...
When diving, the pressure differences which cause the barotrauma are changes in hydrostatic pressure: There are two components to the surrounding pressure acting on the diver: the atmospheric pressure and the water pressure. A descent of 10 metres (33 feet) in water increases the ambient pressure by an amount approximately equal to the pressure of the atmosphere at sea level. So, a descent from the surface to 10 metres (33 feet) underwater results in a doubling of the pressure on the diver. This pressure change will reduce the volume of a gas filled space by half. Boyles law describes the relationship between the volume of the gas space and the pressure in the gas.[1][21]. Barotraumas of descent are caused by preventing the free change of volume of the gas in a closed space in contact with the diver, resulting in a pressure difference between the tissues and the gas space, and the unbalanced force due to this pressure difference causes deformation of the tissues resulting in cell ...

Risks and adverse effects. HBOT is one of the most benign treatments in health care. Nonetheless, it can cause adverse effects. The most common one is ear barotrauma, which occurs when the eustachian tubes close during pressurization, causing increased pressure against the tympanic membrane. Barotrauma effects may vary from tympanic membrane damage to eardrum rupture. Barotrauma damage is classified on the Teed Scale and ranges from grade 0 (no damage) to grade 5 (deep black or blue appearance of the entire ear drum and/or rupture).. Other possible adverse effects include sinus squeeze, tooth squeeze if the patient has an air space under a filling, transient myopia, claustrophobia, oxygen toxicity and, rarely, seizures. In diabetic patients, HBOT has a hypoglycemic effect, reducing blood glucose levels an average of 50 mg/dL during treatment. Caregivers must check the patients blood glucose level before and after each treatment and postpone treatment if the pretreatment blood glucose level is ...
Ear squeeze occurs when the adverse effects of pressure changes on the ear during scuba diving. Ear squeeze symptoms include ear pain, hearing loss, tinnitus, nausea, and vomiting.
Background: Inner ear barotrauma and decompression sickness may present as diagnostic challenge because both diseases share similar symptoms. The treatment of inner ear decompression sickness is hyperbaric oxygen therapy, but ear barotrauma is a contraindication to this treatment. Objective: We present a case of inner ear decompression sickness, which illustrates the difficulty in distinguishing it from barotrauma. We will enhance important clinical elements to orient towards the appropriate diagnosis and treatment. Case: A 37-year-old man is brought to the hospital with a possible diagnosis of inner ear decompression sickness. He complains of vertigo, nausea, a sense of ear fullness and right hearing loss. He denies other symptoms of decompression sickness. Symptoms appeared after a dive at 120 feet about 30 minutes after regaining the ground. There was no violation of decompression tables, and the diver did not have any symptoms during descent. The physical exam was normal except for inability ...
Context: Middle ear barotrauma (MEB) is common during chamber compression in hyperbaric oxygen therapy. However, little evidence exists on an optimal compression protocol to minimize the incidence and severity of MEB.. Objective: To compare the incidence of MEB during hyperbaric oxygen therapy using two different chamber compression protocols.. Design: Double-blinded, randomized controlled trial.. Setting: Hyperbaric Medicine Unit, The Townsville Hospital, Queensland, Australia, September 2012 to December 2014.Patients: 100 participants undergoing their first hyperbaric oxygen therapy session.. Intervention: Random assignment to a staged (n=50) or a linear (n=50) compression protocols. Photographs of tympanic membranes were taken pre- and post-treatment and then graded. Middle ear barotrauma was defined as an increase of at least one grade on a modified TEED scale. Results: The observed MEB incidence under the staged protocol was 48% compared to 62% using the linear protocol (P=0.12, exact ...

Recreational scuba diving has become a popular sport in the United States, with almost 9 million certified divers. When severe diving injury occurs, the nervous system is frequently involved. In dive-related barotrauma, compressed or expanding gas within the ears, sinuses and lungs causes various forms of neurologic injury. Otic barotrauma often induces pain, vertigo and hearing loss. In pulmonary barotrauma of ascent, lung damage can precipitate arterial gas embolism, causing blockage of cerebral blood vessels and alterations of consciousness, seizures and focal neurologic deficits. In patients with decompression sickness, the vestibular system, spinal cord and brain are affected by the formation of nitrogen bubbles. Common signs and symptoms include vertigo, thoracic myelopathy with leg weakness, confusion, headache and hemiparesis. Other diving-related neurologic complications include headache and oxygen toxicity.

entry level recreational diving certification from CMAS CMAS * SCUBA Diver, CMAS one-star Scuba diver, or just CMAS * is an entry level diving certification for recreational SCUBA issued by Confédération Mondiale des Activités Subaquatiques (CMAS), enabling divers to undertake accompanied no-decompression dives to a maximum depth of twenty meters. CMAS describes that a One Star Diver shall be deemed to have sufficient knowledge, skill and experience to procure air, equipment, and other diving services and to plan, conduct, and log open-water dives that do not require mandatory in-water decompression stops, without the supervision of a CMAS Instructor or CMAS Dive Leader, when properly equipped and accompanied by another certified diver of at least the same level, provided the diving activities undertaken, the diving conditions and the diving area are similar, equal or better to those in which training was received. CMAS * training is available from two sources. Firstly, from national diving ...
The prerequisite of development of pulmonary barotrauma [PB] is retention of the breathing mix in the lungs during a sudden decrease in external pressure or its administration into the airways under increased pressure or in a volume exceeding the maximum lung capacity. In such cases, the pulmonary parenchyma ruptures and air enters both the pleural cavity and/or the lumen of ruptured blood vessels located in the alveolar septa. The result is permanent disruption of the pulmonary parenchyma.. The aim of the study was to assess the influence of post-PB lesions on the heart muscle and the importance of hyperbaric treatment on the exacerbation of such lesions in the heart. The hearts of 35 rabbits were used in the study. In animals of the experimental group, PB was induced in the pressure chamber using the proprietary method described in previous publications. Part of the animals in this group were treated with air hyperbaria. The comparison group consisted of animals, which did not undergo PB ...
Known for their coral reefs and abundant aquatic life, the Cayman Islands offer incredible vacations for both the experienced scuba diver and for the novice scuba diver. A major tourist attraction in the Caymans is the Stingray City Sandbar where visitors can snorkel amongst the sea creatures and see a variety of tropical fish and stingrays. And tourists flying in from the across the world have the option of renting condos or villas on the island.
While diving: Sometimes one of the equalizing techniques used on descent will clear your ears on ascent. Pointing the affected ear toward the bottom may help, too. Ascend as slowly as your air supply allows. Increasing pressure usually opens the Eustachian tube and relieves overpressure. However, in rare cases it may persist all the way up. In that case, you will have to endure the pain to reach the surface. Notify your buddy, and stay in close proximity ...
If symptoms of otic or sinus barotrauma, or discomfort, occur in-flight then action is required, depending on the stage of the flight profile (climb, cruise, or descent), the severity of the trauma, and also depending on whether the patient is a crew member or passenger. Solutions may include: an immediate return to the departure aerodrome; a reduced cruising altitude; pressurisation management; and, continuation to destination with the application of first aid. Most critical for severe cases will be the need to control the descent in stages, allowing the patient time to equalise their ears frequently. The most crucial stage (i.e. with the greatest pressure change) is the last few thousand feet of altitude. An badly affected crewmember should be removed from duties. There can be some leeway if one of only two pilots is affected, depending on the severity of pain; but discussions will need to cover the potential symptoms of degraded hearing, performance and possible dizziness and imbalance. All ...
An obstruction in the Eustachian tube can lead to an inability to achieve equalization particularly during a descent when the pressure changes fast. If the pressure in the tympanic cavity is lower than the pressure of the surrounding tissue, this imbalance results in a relative vacuum in the middle ear space. It causes tissue to swell, the eardrum to bulge inward, leakage of fluid and bleeding of ruptured vessels. At a certain point an active attempt to equalize will be futile, and a forceful Valsalva maneuver may actually injure the inner ear. Eventually, the eardrum may rupture; this is likely to bring relief from the pain associated with MEBT, but it is an outcome to be avoided if possible ...

Baerwald et al.. 21,000 square meters of swept area of annihilation To give an idea of their scale, Danish company Vestas, for example, offers an 8-MW offshore turbine with a total height of 220 meters that is equipped with a monster rotor diameter of 164 meters. The result: horrendous blade speeds and pressure gradients. Flying wildlife stand no chance. Worse is the growing size of the hazardous swept area.. Vestas boasts that its V164-8.0 MW® turbine has a swept area of more than 21,000 square meters, which is equivalent to almost three football pitches.

Organ biofabrication is a potential future alternative for obtaining viable organs for transplantation. Achieving intact scaffolds to be recellularized is a key step in lung bioengineering. Perfusion of decellularizing media through the pulmonary artery has shown to be effective. How vascular perfusion pressure and flow vary throughout lung decellularization, which is not well known, is important for optimizing the process (minimizing time) while ensuring scaffold integrity (no barotrauma). This work was aimed at characterizing the pressure/flow relationship at the pulmonary vasculature and at how effective vascular resistance depends on pressure- and flow-controlled variables when applying different methods of media perfusion for lung decellularization. Lungs from 43 healthy mice (C57BL/6; 7-8 weeks old) were investigated. After excision and tracheal cannulation, lungs were inflated at ...
Pain is the most common symptom of ear injury, but the most alarming symptoms are vertigo, tinnitus and acute deafness. All three symptoms may be caused by a variety of acute and chronic medical conditions that affect fitness to dive. Acute onset of these symptoms in relation to diving may indicate inner-ear barotrauma or decompression sickness and should prompt medical evaluation ...
Note: PEEP is not a ventilatory mode in and of itself. Does not allow alveolar pressure to equilibrate with the atmosphere. PEEP displaces the entire pressure waveform, thus mean intrathoracic pressure increases and the effects on cardiac output are amplified. Low levels of PEEP can be very dangerous, even 5 cm H20, especially in patients with hypovolemia or cardiac dysfunction. When measuring the effectiveness of PEEP, cardiac output must always be calculated because at high saturations, changes in Q will be more important than SaO2 - never use SaO2 as an endpoint for PEEP. The effects of PEEP are not caused by the PEEP itself but by its effects on Ppeak and Pmean, both of which it increases. Risk of barotrauma is dependent on Ppeak, while cardiac output response depends on Pmean. In fact, in a recent study of ARDS patients, it was shown that increasing PEEP from 0 to 5, 10, and 15 cm H2O was met with corresponding decreases in CO [Crit Care Med 31: 2719, 2003] PEEP is indicated clinically for ...

In this retrospective study, we report that major complications of HFNC were relatively rare (0.9 per 100 HFNC treatment days), despite an increasing number of subjects being treated with HFNC in our pediatric ICU. HFNC has become an interesting alternative for delivery of noninvasive respiratory support in neonates and children because it is simple to use and well tolerated. However, there is little evidence in the literature regarding the safety of HFNC use in a pediatric ICU.. Over 1 y, we observed a low rate of barotrauma (2 episodes, 1%) and of clinically important epistaxis (1 episode, 0.6%). The role of HFNC in the development of these pneumothoraces is difficult to ascertain. In the first subject, severe bronchospasm alone may have led to a pneumothorax through hyperinflation. In the second, air leak may have been secondary to the surgery rather than the ventilator support. Interestingly, among the 6 preexisting pneumothoraces, none worsened under HFNC. This incidence of preexisting ...
Results Pneumothorax and pneumomediastinum are recognised complications of illicit drug use. The underlying pathophysiology relates to barotrauma created by the inhalation technique.2 Inhalation of Nitrous Oxide has the added complication of pneumothorax expansion, due to its high blood-gas partition coefficient. Accordingly complications from the inhalation of nitrous oxide may be significantly worse than for users of other inhaled recreational drugs.. Recreational nitrous oxide use amongst the teenage population has risen exponentially over the past five years, with 7.6% of 16-24 year olds in England and Wales admitting to having tried nitrous oxide in 2013.3 Seventeen deaths in the UK were attributable to nitrous oxide between 2006-2012,1 a figure which we would expect to rise given current surge in usage.. ...
Mercury fillings cause sinus problems - Is it possible that the mercury in fillings can cause sinus problems? No. Sinus disease is the result of the impairment of normal drainage and airflow through the sinuses. The drainage openings can get obstructed by viral infection, allergy, septal deviation, nasal polyps, tumors, barotrauma among others. Mercury fillings play no role in acute or chronic sinus disease.
Thousands of industrial-scale wind turbines are being built across the world each year to meet the growing demand for sustainable energy. Bats of certain species are dying at wind turbines in unprecedented numbers. Species of bats consistently affected by turbines tend to be those that rely on trees as roosts and most migrate long distances. Although considerable progress has been made in recent years toward better understanding the problem, the causes of bat fatalities at turbines remain unclear. In this synthesis, we review hypothesized causes of bat fatalities at turbines. Hypotheses of cause fall into 2 general categories-proximate and ultimate. Proximate causes explain the direct means by which bats die at turbines and include collision with towers and rotating blades, and barotrauma. Ultimate causes explain why bats come close to turbines and include 3 general types: random collisions, coincidental collisions, and collisions that result from attraction of bats to turbines. The random ...
Since the glomerular afferent arterioles provide relatively low resistance, the glomerulus is susceptible to barotrauma if the pulse pressure is elevated (1-6). In fact, prior studies have demonstrated an association of high pulse pressure with microalbuminuria even in subjects without diabetes (7,8). In the current study, we examined the possible association of high pulse pressure and proteinuria (≥1+), i.e., macroalbuminuria, and found that this association was not significant independently of systolic BP in subjects without diabetes. In contrast, systolic BP was significantly associated with proteinuria in these subjects. Although the usefulness of the urine dipstick test for risk stratification of renal and cardiovascular disease has been recognized, this method is a less sensitive measure of albuminuria compared with the measurement of urinary albumin excretion (23-26). Accordingly, we cannot deny the possibility of an association between high pulse pressure and microalbuminuria in ...

Fishermen heading offshore this Friday to take advantage of the last day of the recreational Red Snapper opening in the South Atlantic are reminded that new regulations requiring descending devices be on board and changes to hook requirements become effective July 15, 2020 in federal waters. Descending Device Requirements The new requirements are designed to help improve the chances that released fish survive by encouraging the use of descending devices when needed and modifying current hook requirements. Beginning July 15th, a descending device must be on board and readily available for use (attached to a minimum of 60-feet of line with at least 16 ounces of weight) when targeting snapper grouper species. The descending device can help reduce the effects of barotrauma, a condition that occurs when a fish is rapidly reeled up from depth. Signs include protrusion of the stomach from the fishs mouth, bulging eyes, prolapse, and bubbling scales. A descending device can quickly be used to send the ...

Transmission of disease via scuba gear probably does not happen often - but the thought arises in the minds of those who fear using rental scuba gear or buddy breathing. There are many transmissable diseases that have the capability of being passed on to another through the use of unclean equipment. These conditions are caused by viruses, bacteria and fungi - some short-lived on inanimate objects, and some lurking and living in the moist confines of the crevices and tubes of unwashed scuba gear. Included among the viruses are HIV, HCV (Hepatitis C), influenza and herpes simplex. Bacterial infections include staphylococcus aureus, salmonella choleraesuis, pseudomonas aeruginosa, klebsiella pneumoniae and mycobacteris (tuberculosis); fungal infections include candida albicans.. The specter of getting HIV from CPR practice dummies has even caused a study to be done - with live HIV virus. This study conclusively showed the use of routine cleansing methods (Propanol) to be effective in removing all ...
