Performance comparison of two oscillating positive expiratory pressure devices: Acapella versus Flutter. (1/46)

BACKGROUND: Oscillatory positive expiratory pressure (PEP) with the Flutter device facilitates secretion removal. In the Flutter a steel ball vibrates inside a cone, causing air flow vibration. A new device, the Acapella, uses a counterweighted plug and magnet to create air flow oscillation. The Acapella comes in 2 models: one for patients with expiratory flow > or = 15 L/min and one for < or = 15 L/min. We hypothesized that the Acapella and Flutter would produce similar mean PEP, oscillatory pressure amplitude, and frequency over a clinically relevant range of flows. METHODS: We measured oscillatory amplitude, PEP, and frequency. Values for frequency, peak, trough, and mean pressure were recorded automatically every 3 seconds at flows of 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, and 30 L/min. The pressure waveform for 1 second was also graphically displayed and recorded. The devices were adjusted to give low, medium, and high mean expiratory pressure (Flutter angle at 0, 20, and 40 degrees; Acapella by dial setting). Data were analyzed by 2-way repeated measures analysis of variance, and differences were considered significant when p was < 0.05. RESULTS: There were statistically significant differences between the devices for mean pressure, pressure amplitude, and frequency, for all experimental conditions. However, the differences were relatively small and may not be clinically important. Both devices produced similar pressure waveforms at the medium flows. At 5 L/min the Acapella produced a more stable waveform, with a lower frequency, higher amplitude, and a slightly wider range of PEP than the Flutter. CONCLUSIONS: Acapella and Flutter have similar performance characteristics. Acapella's performance is not gravity-dependent (ie, dependent on device orientation) and may be easier to use for some patients, particularly at low expiratory flows.  (+info)

Pulmonary hyperinflation and respiratory distress following solvent aspiration in a patient with asthma: expectoration of bronchial casts and clinical improvement with high-frequency chest wall oscillation. (2/46)

An 18-year-old student with a history of asthma accidentally inhaled organic solvent during a class, with immediate cough and dyspnea that worsened over several hours. He presented in severe respiratory distress, with hypoxemia and marked pulmonary hyperinflation. Administration of inhaled bronchodilator was ineffective because of agitation, and the patient could not be positioned for chest physiotherapy to treat presumed widespread mucus plugging. High-frequency chest wall oscillation (HFCWO) in the sitting position initially caused increased distress but was subsequently tolerated when noninvasive positive-pressure ventilation (NPPV) via nasal mask was initiated. Almost immediately, the patient began expectorating bronchial mucus casts, with concomitant clinical improvement. Endotracheal intubation was avoided, and with aggressive pharmacologic treatment for acute severe asthma and continuation of intermittent HFCWO-NPPV, the patient made a full recovery over the next several days. This case suggests that the combination of HFCWO and NPPV may be helpful in the presence of mucus plugging as a complication of acute inhalation injury or acute severe asthma.  (+info)

Cariporide enables hemodynamically more effective chest compression by leftward shift of its flow-depth relationship. (3/46)

When given during closed-chest resuscitation, cariporide (4-isopropyl-methylsulfonylbenzoyl-guanidine methanesulfonate; a selective inhibitor of the Na(+)/H(+) exchanger isoform-1) enables generation of viable perfusion pressures with less depth of compression. We hypothesized that this effect results from greater blood flows generated for a given depth of compression. Two series of 14 rats each underwent 10 min of untreated ventricular fibrillation followed by 8 min of chest compression before defibrillation was attempted. Compression depth was adjusted to maintain an aortic diastolic pressure (ADP) between 26 and 28 mmHg in the first series and between 36 and 38 mmHg in the second series. Within each series, rats were randomized to receive cariporide (3 mg/kg) or NaCl (0.9%; control) before chest compression was started. Blood flow was measured using 15-mum fluorescent microspheres. Less depth of compression was required to maintain the target ADP when cariporide was present in both series 1 (13.6 +/- 1.2 vs. 16.6 +/- 1.2 mm; P < 0.001) and series 2 (15.3 +/- 1.0 vs. 18.9 +/- 1.5 mm; P < 0.001). Despite less compression depth, the cardiac index in cariporide-treated rats was comparable to control rats in series 1 (11.1 +/- 0.7 vs. 11.3 +/- 1.4 ml.min(-1).kg(-1); P = not significant) but higher in series 2 (15.5 +/- 2.3 vs. 9.9 +/- 1.4 ml.min(-1).kg(-1); P < 0.05). Increases in compression depth (from series 1 to series 2) increased myocardial, cerebral, and adrenal blood flow in cariporide-treated rats. We conclude that cariporide enhances the efficacy of closed-chest resuscitation by leftward shift of the flow-depth relationship.  (+info)

Investigation of non-uniform airflow signal oscillation during high frequency chest compression. (4/46)

BACKGROUND: High frequency chest compression (HFCC) is a useful and popular therapy for clearing bronchial airways of excessive or thicker mucus. Our observation of respiratory airflow of a subject during use of HFCC showed the airflow oscillation by HFCC was strongly influenced by the nonlinearity of the respiratory system. We used a computational model-based approach to analyse the respiratory airflow during use of HFCC. METHODS: The computational model, which is based on previous physiological studies and represented by an electrical circuit analogue, was used for simulation of in vivo protocol that shows the nonlinearity of the respiratory system. Besides, airflow was measured during use of HFCC. We compared the simulation results to either the measured data or the previous research, to understand and explain the observations. RESULTS AND DISCUSSION: We could observe two important phenomena during respiration pertaining to the airflow signal oscillation generated by HFCC. The amplitudes of HFCC airflow signals varied depending on spontaneous airflow signals. We used the simulation results to investigate how the nonlinearity of airway resistance, lung capacitance, and inertance of air characterized the respiratory airflow. The simulation results indicated that lung capacitance or the inertance of air is also not a factor in the non-uniformity of HFCC airflow signals. Although not perfect, our circuit analogue model allows us to effectively simulate the nonlinear characteristics of the respiratory system. CONCLUSION: We found that the amplitudes of HFCC airflow signals behave as a function of spontaneous airflow signals. This is due to the nonlinearity of the respiratory system, particularly variations in airway resistance.  (+info)

Inspiratory oscillatory flow with a portable ventilator: a bench study. (5/46)

INTRODUCTION: We observed an oscillatory flow while ventilating critically ill patients with the Drager Oxylog 3000 transport ventilator during interhospital transfer. The phenomenon occurred in paediatric patients or in adult patients with severe airway obstruction ventilated in the pressure-regulated or pressure-controlled mode. As this had not been described previously, we conducted a bench study to investigate the phenomenon. METHODS: An Oxylog 3000 intensive care unit ventilator and a Drager Medical Evita-4 NeoFlow intensive care unit ventilator were connected to a Drager Medical LS800 lung simulator. Data were registered by a Datex-S5 Monitor with a D-fend flow and pressure sensor, and were analysed with a laptop using S5-Collect software. Clinical conditions were simulated using various ventilatory modes, using various ventilator settings, using different filters and endotracheal tubes, and by changing the resistance and compliance. Data were recorded for 258 combinations of patient factors and respirator settings to detect thresholds for the occurrence of the phenomenon and methods to overcome it. RESULTS: Under conditions with high resistance in pressure-regulated ventilation with the Oxylog 3000, an oscillatory flow during inspiration produced rapid changes of the airway pressure. The phenomenon resulted in a jerky inspiration with high peak airway pressures, higher than those set on the ventilator. Reducing the inspiratory flow velocity was effective to terminate the phenomenon, but resulted in reduced tidal volumes. CONCLUSION: Oscillatory flow with potentially harmful effects may occur during ventilation with the Drager Oxylog 3000, especially in conditions with high resistance such as small airways in children (endotracheal tube internal diameter <6 mm) or severe obstructive lung diseases or airway diseases in adult patients.  (+info)

Physiologic evidence for high-frequency chest wall oscillation and positive expiratory pressure breathing in hospitalized subjects with cystic fibrosis. (6/46)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: This investigation identified ventilation distribution, gas mixing, lung function, and arterial blood oxyhemoglobin saturation (SpO2) physiologic responses to 2 independent airway clearance treatments, high-frequency chest wall oscillation (HFCWO) and low positive expiratory pressure (PEP) breathing, for subjects who had cystic fibrosis (CF) and who were hospitalized during acute and subacute phases of a pulmonary exacerbation. SUBJECTS: Fifteen subjects with moderate to severe CF were included in this study. METHODS: Subjects performed single-breath inert gas tests and spirometry before and immediately after HFCWO and PEP breathing at admission and discharge. Arterial blood oxyhemoglobin saturation was monitored throughout each treatment. RESULTS: At admission and discharge, PEP breathing increased SpO2 during treatment, whereas HFCWO decreased SpO2 during treatment. Ventilation distribution, gas mixing, and lung function improved after HFCWO or PEP breathing. DISCUSSION AND CONCLUSION: High-frequency chest wall oscillation and PEP breathing are similarly efficacious in improving ventilation distribution, gas mixing, and pulmonary function in hospitalized people with CF. Because SpO2 decreases during HFCWO, people who have moderate to severe CF and who use HFCWO should have SpO2 monitored during an acute exacerbation.  (+info)

Physiological effects of vibration in subjects with cystic fibrosis. (7/46)

The physiological mechanisms by which vibration and other physiotherapy interventions may clear secretions in subjects with cystic fibrosis are unknown. The main aim of this study was to compare the expiratory flow rates and frequencies of airflow oscillation of vibration to those of Acapella(R), Flutter(R), positive expiratory pressure and percussion. Respiratory flow rates were measured during interventions, the order of which was randomised. The oscillation of the airflow of the interventions was determined by frequency spectral analysis. In 18 young adult subjects with cystic fibrosis, the mean peak expiratory flow rate of vibration was greater than Flutter(R), percussion, Acapella(R) and positive expiratory pressure. The mean+/-sd of the oscillation of the airflow of vibration (8.4+/-0.4 Hz) was lower than Acapella(R) (13.5+/-1.7 Hz) and Flutter(R) (11.3+/-1.5 Hz) but similar to percussion (7.3+/-0.3 Hz). Theoretically, the higher peak expiratory flow rate of vibration compared to the other physiotherapy interventions may promote secretion clearance. In addition, the frequency of oscillation of vibration was within the range demonstrated to increase mucus transport. This study has provided some evidence for the physiological rationale for the use of vibration to aid secretion clearance.  (+info)

Immediate changes in blood-gas tensions during chest physiotherapy with positive expiratory pressure and oscillating positive expiratory pressure in patients with cystic fibrosis. (8/46)

OBJECTIVE: To assess and compare immediate effects of chest physiotherapy with positive expiratory pressure (PEP) versus oscillating PEP on transcutaneously measured blood-gas tensions in patients with cystic fibrosis. METHODS: Fifteen patients (mean age 12.5 y, range 6.9-21.5 y) participated. The treatments were randomized and performed on 2 separate occasions, 8 weeks apart. Spirometry was conducted before and after each treatment. We transcutaneously measured oxygen tension (P(tO2). RESULTS: There were no changes in spirometry values. During PEP, different trends in blood-gas tension were seen, and there were no consistent changes. During oscillating PEP, P(tO2) increased and P(tCO2) decreased. During oscillating PEP, P(tCO2) was lower and the intra-individual change in P(tCO2) was more pronounced than during PEP. The results obtained immediately after oscillating PEP showed a higher P(tO2) and a lower P(tCO2) than with PEP. CONCLUSION: PEP and oscillating PEP can both cause transitory effects on blood gases in patients with cystic fibrosis. However, oscillating PEP alters blood-gas tensions more than does PEP, and hyperventilation during oscillating PEP may reduce treatment time.  (+info)

Our study showed that using HFCWO for only 3 months produced a significant improvement in the feeling of breathlessness and increased cough at night. The increase in nocturnal cough may be an indication that HFCWO was effective for increasing secretion mobilization. Although there were no significant changes between the groups with respect to objective pulmonary function measures, peak expiratory flow increased in HFCWO users, whereas it decreased in nonusers (p = 0.179). The directional trend may be noteworthy.. The relentlessly progressive decline in respiratory muscle strength, as measured by FVC, oxygen saturation, and capnography continued despite treatment with HFCWO. However, we learned from this exploratory study which patients might benefit most from HFCWO use. First, our entry criteria were broad, allowing entry of patients with the most minimal symptoms of pulmonary dysfunction. These patients may have diluted therapeutic efficacy in our analysis of all participants. When only ...
Asthma and Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) are common chronic pulmonary disorders with periodic exacerbations characterized by increased airway obstruction, mucous hypersecretion, and respiratory symptoms such as dyspnea, cough, and wheeze. Despite major advances in the treatment of these disorders, severe asthma and COPD exacerbations are common and each result in about 500,000 hospitalizations per year in the United States. Moreover, re-exacerbations are common in this population, occurring in about 25% within 1 month and 50% within 12 months of hospital discharge. Inhaled medications, which rely on deposition into distal airspaces to suppress airway inflammation and promote bronchodilation, are used for both the treatment and prevention of asthma and COPD exacerbations. However, excessive mucous production and impaired airway mucociliary clearance lead to airway plugging, reducing the deposition of and response to inhaled medications. These considerations highlight the need for ...

Besides airway suctioning, patients undergoing invasive mechanical ventilation (iMV) benefit of different combinations of chest physiotherapy techniques, to improve mucus removal. To date, little is known about the clearance effects of oscillating devices on patients with acute respiratory failure undergoing iMV. This study aimed to assess (1) the effects of high-frequency chest wall oscillation (HFCWO) on lung aeration and ventilation distribution, as assessed by electrical impedance tomography (EIT), and (2) the effect of the association of HFCWO with recruitment manoeuvres (RM). Sixty critically ill patients, 30 classified as normosecretive and 30 as hypersecretive, who received ≥ 48 h of iMV, underwent HFCWO; patients from both subgroups were randomized to receive RM or not, according to two separated randomization sequences. We therefore obtained four arms of 15 patients each. After baseline record (T0), HFCWO was applied for 10 min. At the end of the treatment (T1) or after 1 (T2) and 3 h (T3),

In a respiratory apparatus for treatment of sleep apnea and other disorders associated with an obstruction of a patients airway and which uses an airflow signal, an obstruction index is generated which detects the flattening of the inspiratory portion of the airflow. The obstruction index is used to differentiate normal and obstructed breathing. The obstruction index is based upon different weighting factors applied to sections of the airflow signal thereby improving sensitivity to various types of respiration obstructions.
Recognition of respiratory compromise on the basis of both severity and risk is a critical step in the development of preventive strategies and surveillance systems to identify respiratory compromise changes early and thus help to prevent respiratory failure and death. Increased attention, observation, and therapeutics substantially improve the probability of survival in deteriorating patients28; delay of such interventions for patients developing acute respiratory failure increases the chances of death.29 On the other hand, most interventions (eg, aggressive respiratory secretion clearance30) require additional resources that are not feasible to provide to the majority of in-patients. It may not be straightforward to determine which patients are in sufficient jeopardy to warrant resource-intensive interventions.. There are examples of clinically validated data to help recognize respiratory compromise on the basis of the severity of the underlying conditions and the risk of deterioration. ...

The differentiation of obstructive and central respiratory events is a major challenge in the diagnosis of sleep disordered breathing. Esophageal pressure (Pes) measurement is the gold-standard method to identify these events but its invasiveness deters its usage in clinical routine. Flattening patterns appear in the airflow signal during episodes of inspiratory flow limitation (IFL) and have been shown with invasive techniques to be useful to differentiate between central and obstructive hypopneas. In this study we present a new method for the automatic non-invasive differentiation of obstructive and central hypopneas solely with nasal airflow. An overall of 36 patients underwent full night polysomnography with systematic Pes recording and a total of 1069 hypopneas were manually scored by human experts to create a goldstandard annotation set. Features were automatically extracted from the nasal airflow signal to train and test our automatic classifier (Discriminant Analysis). Flattening ...

Reeve J.C., Davies N., Freeman J., O’Donovan B.. This study attempted to report the use of normal saline instillation (NSI) in New Zealand intensive care units by physiotherapists. The results showed that despite the controversy over the use of NSI, its use was reported in 79% of the hospital intensive care units with physiotherapists using it 58% of the time in practice. Those who reported never using NSI cited a lack of evidence as the reason for not using it. Technique of instillation, volume of normal saline used, time to suctioning varied widely.. Clinical relevance: Normal saline instillation continues to be used by physiotherapists in New Zealand as a technique to enhance secretion clearance. There is little high quality evidence to substantiate its use. New Zealand Journal of Physiotherapy 2007; 35: 119 - 125. Link to Full text ...

0045] As shown in FIG. 3, prior to using the OPEP device 100, the oscillation member 122 is biased to an engaged position, where the deformable restrictor member 120 is in contact with the oscillation member 122. In the engaged position, the exhalation flow path 148 is substantially restricted by the deformable restrictor member 120 and the oscillation member 122. As a user exhales into the OPEP device 100, an initial exhalation pressure at the chamber inlet 114 begins to increase, as only a fraction of the exhaled air is permitted to flow along the exhalation flow path 148 through the at least one channel 142 on the oscillation member 122. As the exhalation pressure increases at the chamber inlet 114 to an intermediate pressure, the deformable restrictor member 120 begins to expand under the force of the increased pressure. As the deformable restrictor member 120 expands, the lower portion 136 moves in an outward direction, toward the oscillation member 122. In the engaged position, however, ...
Discussion. In this randomized crossover trial, conducted in patients with severe COPD, we found that the application of 1cmH2O PEP during the execution of 6MWT can improve the distance walked to the same extent as the application of 10cmH2O PEP, without affecting the cardiovascular response to exercise. We did not find any effect of PEP on dyspnea at the end of exercise and post-exertion lung dynamic volumes, particularly IC, SVC, FVC and ERV. Moreover, we found that the improvement of 6MWD is greater in patients with no or low dynamic hyperinflation when a low PEP is applied.. So far, only two other crossover randomized trials have investigated the effects of a PEP device on 6MWD, with contrasting results.. In 2013, Nicolini et al.11 found that a threshold PEP of 5cmH2O improved the distance walked during the 6MWT in patients with moderate-to-severe COPD. They also demonstrated a significant improvement in post-exercise oxygen saturation and a decrease in peak heart rate during the 6MWT with ...
The invention provides exemplary methods and valves used to alter a persons breathing. In one method, an exit valve is interfaced with a persons airway. The exit valve is configured such that respiratory gases are prevented from exiting the persons lungs when the exit valve is closed and are permitted to exit the persons lungs when the exit valve is opened. The exit valve is configured to open when a valve actuating pressure is met or exceeded. In a further step, the valve actuating pressure is varied over time.

Its been 3 months since our last check in with the clinic. Weve been tracking our data for the past 6 months and are interested to hear what, if any, trends they are seeing. Last week we got a summary of our data to review before our visit that helps us to identify any ongoing concerns that Ive had since we were last seen. Our doctor has already reviewed this and is recommending that we meet with our RT to discuss alternative airway clearance techniques because she has seen that we have been checking that out on our message boards. Since she brought that up, I do agree that it could be useful to hear about some of our other options even though I havent really thought about much about it since our last clinic visit. I also notice that Drews interest in eating has declined considerably over the past 2 weeks. I let them know that Id like to talk with the dietician to figure out whats going on.

How it is, for someone with cystic fibrosis, is that each breath is a small triumph. The genetic conditio churns out gluey mucus that will clog and inexorably shut down the lungs if not jarred loose and hocked up at least twice a day. That entails half-hour sessions of gentle thumps (parents of CFbabies call them pitty pats) at more than a dozen prescribed locations on the back and chest, or wearing a vibrating vest powered by an air hose, or using a handheld positive expiratory pressure device. The sessions are punctuated with vigorous huff coughs to expel the sticky stuff. CF children learn the technique as toddlers.. Theres more.

However, Nellie Kroes analysis fails to take an essentiel step: it remains entirely within an economicist approach. The public is present only as consumers, who are assumed to use file sharing only because legal offers, constrained by laws and regulations, would not evolve with enough flexibility. Sharing would be only a market failure and not a fundamental dimension of culture. The distribution of works to other individuals, sharing them without aim of profit, this wonderful capability with which digital technology endows us would just be an anomaly and not the core cultural promise of the digital age. Without taking the essential step of recognizing the right to non-market sharing, many of the measures proposed by Nellie Kroes (lowering the VAT on digital cultural products to align it with physical products) or many of her visions (lets do our own European Netflix, iTunes or centralized hosting services) would deliver exactly the contrary of what she tells us is her aim. Instead of a ...

Airway clearance techniques (ACTs): One of the key treatments for CF is daily airway clearance technique treatments. There are several techniques, such as percussion and postular draining in which a caretaker cups their hand and claps it against the childs chest to loosen and expel mucus. Different ACTs are more effective for different people-no one technique is necessarily better than another, but anything is better than nothing. It is important to find one that works for you and do it daily. ...

On February 11, 1907, housemaid Nellie Walsh, a 28-year-old Irish immigrant, was brought to National Emergency Hospital in Chicago in grave condition from complications of a criminal abortion. A curettage was performed to try to save her life, but her condition continued to deteriorate. The next day, February 12, the doctor told Nellie that there was nothing more that could be done for her, and that she was dying. Head nurse Cora Bachino asked Nellie if shed like a priest to administer last rites. Nellie answered yes, and a priest was brought to her. After last rites, Nellie made her dying declaration, naming Dr. Adolph Buettner as her abortionist. Less than an hour later, she died ...

Airway clearance as far as I understand it means loosening up the gunk in ones lungs and aggressively coughing it up to get rid of it. Will doesnt like adding daily airway clearance to his routine. It takes time -- about 90 minutes or so each day -- and it makes his chest hurt. Mostly, though, I think the hard part is that it was one of the CF related obligations he had hoped to leave behind forever after transplant. But he does do it, most days, because it makes him feel better and hopefully will make hospitalizations and use of IV antibiotics less frequent. Will recently started using nebulized hyper tonic saline (a 3% solution) to help with airway clearance and it does seem to help him. It seems like inhaling the saline mist makes the gunk in his lungs more susceptible to moving around and being coughed up ...

This post is part two of the Nellie Bly story. If you missed part one you can catch up and read it here.. At age 25, Bly was still working at New York World and looking for her next big adventure. Inspired by the Jules Verne novel, Around the World in 80 Days, Bly decided she would try to best the fictional hero, Phileas Fogg, and beat his time. She offered the idea to her editor and a year later, on November 14, 1889, she boarded the Augusta Victoria steamer and started her 24,899 mile journey with nothing but the dress she was wearing, a small duffel of toiletries, and a bag of money worn around her neck.. In order to increase publicity of their own periodical, Cosmopolitan, sent their own reporter, Elizabeth Bisland, around the world in the opposite direction with the goal of not only beating Fogg but Bly as well. To keep interest in the story alive, New York World held the Nellie Bly Guessing Match; participants would estimate Blys arrival to the second for a chance to win a trip to ...
