It is usually caused by cross bacterial infections in hospitals (NOSOCOMIAL INFECTIONS).Heart Failure: A heterogeneous condition in which the heart is unable to pump out sufficient blood to meet the metabolic need of the body. Heart failure can be caused by structural defects, functional abnormalities (VENTRICULAR DYSFUNCTION), or a sudden overload beyond its capacity. Chronic heart failure is more common than acute heart failure which results from sudden insult to cardiac function, such as MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION.Work of Breathing: RESPIRATORY MUSCLE contraction during INHALATION. The work is accomplished in three phases: LUNG COMPLIANCE work, that required to expand the LUNGS against its elastic forces; tissue resistance work, that required to overcome the viscosity of the lung and chest wall structures; and AIRWAY RESISTANCE work, that required to overcome airway resistance during the movement of air into the lungs. Work of breathing does not refer to expiration, which is entirely a passive process caused by elastic recoil of the lung and chest cage. (Guyton, Textbook of Medical Physiology, 8th ed, p406)Gestational Age: The age of the conceptus, beginning from the time of FERTILIZATION.

Cells or substances in this fluid can be removed for prenatal diagnostic tests (AMNIOCENTESIS).Monitoring, Physiologic: The continuous measurement of physiological processes, blood pressure, heart rate, renal output, reflexes, respiration, etc., in a patient or experimental animal; includes pharmacologic monitoring, the measurement of administered drugs or their metabolites in the blood, tissues, or urine.Infant, Very Low Birth Weight: An infant whose weight at birth is less than 1500 grams (3.3 lbs), regardless of gestational age.Persistent Fetal Circulation Syndrome: A syndrome of persistent PULMONARY HYPERTENSION in the newborn infant (INFANT, NEWBORN) without demonstrable HEART DISEASES. This neonatal condition can be caused by severe pulmonary vasoconstriction (reactive type), hypertrophy of pulmonary arterial muscle (hypertrophic type), or abnormally developed pulmonary arterioles (hypoplastic type). The newborn patient exhibits CYANOSIS and ACIDOSIS due to the persistence of fetal circulatory pattern of right-to-left shunting of blood through a patent ductus arteriosus (DUCTUS ARTERIOSUS, PATENT) and at times a patent foramen ovale (FORAMEN OVALE, PATENT).Disease Models, Animal: Naturally occurring or experimentally induced animal diseases with pathological processes sufficiently similar to those of human diseases.

  • At present, nasal mask ventilation in young children must be considered an investigational technique for research and/or use only by experienced centres. (ersjournals.com)
  • The mechanics of the respiratory system are further hampered by high-flow resistance of the nasal airway and small airways 9 , increased propensity to hypertrophy of the adenoids and tonsils 10 , a small zone of apposition of the diaphragm 6 , horizontal ribs, and in the very young, immature muscles 11 , all curtailing the endurance of the respiratory system.

  • TECNOLOGÍA: La terapia de alto flujo mediante cánulas nasales consiste en la utilización de una mezcla de gas a flujos altos (hasta 60 litros por minuto) con proporciones variables de aire y oxígeno (fracción inspirada de oxígeno-FiO2-) administrados a través de una cánula nasal. (bvsalud.org)
  • CONCLUSIONES: Evidencia de muy baja calidad proveniente de series de casos de pacientes con infección respiratoria por SARS-CoV-2 tratados con terapia de alto flujo con cánula nasal o con ventilación mecánica no invasiva, adicionados a otros tratamientos, no permite establecer su eficacia en la reducción de la mortalidad o en la mejoría clínica. (bvsalud.org)
  • La mayoría de guías, recomendaciones y consensos internacionales recomiendan el uso de terapia de alto flujo con cánula nasal o en su defecto ventilación mecánica no invasiva en pacientes con insuficiencia respiratoria hipoxémica a pesar de la oxigenoterapia convencional, así como ventilación mecánica no invasiva en pacientes con agudización o re agudización de una insuficiencia respiratoria hipercápnica en pacientes con enfermedad pulmonar obstructiva crónica.

  • Manufacturing companies of HFNC have created different sized nasal prongs to accommodate premature neonates to adults, with varying associated flow rates," he said. (rtmagazine.com)
  • Additionally, HFNC is best used for respiratory failure patients who need more support, specifically FiO 2 and flow, than nasal cannula can provide. (rtmagazine.com)

  • The respiratory pumps consists of the chest wall- respiratory muscles, the respiratory controllers in the CNS and the pathways that connect the central controllers with the respiratory muscles i.e the spinal and peripheral nerves. (physio-pedia.com)
  • The actual value of 40% is maintained by a variety of manoeuvres including laryngeal breaking 2 , maintenance of the post-inspiratory tone in the muscles of chest wall 3 , and the use of respiratory rates fast enough to make the expiratory time less than the time constant of the respiratory system.
