Airway closure, atelectasis and gas exchange during general anaesthesia. (1/295)

Airway closure and the formation of atelectasis have been proposed as important contributors to impairment of gas exchange during general anaesthesia. We have elucidated the relationships between each of these two mechanisms and gas exchange. We studied 35 adults with healthy lungs, undergoing elective surgery. Airway closure was measured using the foreign gas bolus technique, atelectasis was estimated by analysis of computed x-ray tomography, and ventilation-perfusion distribution (VA/Q) was assessed by the multiple inert gas elimination technique. The difference between closing volume and expiratory reserve volume (CV-ERV) increased from the awake to the anaesthetized state. Linear correlations were found between atelectasis and shunt (r = 0.68, P < 0.001), and between CV-ERV and the amount of perfusion to poorly ventilated lung units ("low Va/Q", r = 0.57, P = 0.001). Taken together, the amount of atelectasis and airway closure may explain 75% of the deterioration in PaO2. There was no significant correlation between CV-ERV and atelectasis. We conclude that in anaesthetized adults with healthy lungs, undergoing mechanical ventilation, both airway closure and atelectasis contributed to impairment of gas exchange. Atelectasis and airway closure do not seem to be closely related.  (+info)

Kinetics of absorption atelectasis during anesthesia: a mathematical model. (2/295)

Recent computed tomography studies show that inspired gas composition affects the development of anesthesia-related atelectasis. This suggests that gas absorption plays an important role in the genesis of the atelectasis. A mathematical model was developed that combined models of gas exchange from an ideal lung compartment, peripheral gas exchange, and gas uptake from a closed collapsible cavity. It was assumed that, initially, the lung functioned as an ideal lung compartment but that, with induction of anesthesia, the airways to dependent areas of lung closed and these areas of lung behaved as a closed collapsible cavity. The main parameter of interest was the time the unventilated area of lung took to collapse; the effects of preoxygenation and of different inspired gas mixtures during anesthesia were examined. Preoxygenation increased the rate of gas uptake from the unventilated area of lung and was the most important determinant of the time to collapse. Increasing the inspired O2 fraction during anesthesia reduced the time to collapse. Which inert gas (N2 or N2O) was breathed during anesthesia had minimal effect on the time to collapse.  (+info)

'Alveolar recruitment strategy' improves arterial oxygenation during general anaesthesia. (3/295)

Abnormalities in gas exchange during general anaesthesia are caused partly by atelectasis. Inspiratory pressures of approximately 40 cm H2O are required to fully re-expand healthy but collapsed alveoli. However, without PEEP these re-expanded alveoli tend to collapse again. We hypothesized that an initial increase in pressure would open collapsed alveoli; if this inspiratory recruitment is combined with sufficient end-expiratory pressure, alveoli will remain open during general anaesthesia. We tested the effect of an 'alveolar recruitment strategy' on arterial oxygenation and lung mechanics in a prospective, controlled study of 30 ASA II or III patients aged more than 60 yr allocated to one of three groups. Group ZEEP received no PEEP. The second group received an initial control period without PEEP, and then PEEP 5 cm H2O was applied. The third group received an increase in PEEP and tidal volumes until a PEEP of 15 cm H2O and a tidal volume of 18 ml kg-1 or a peak inspiratory pressure of 40 cm H2O was reached. PEEP 5 cm H2O was then maintained. There was a significant increase in median PaO2 values obtained at baseline (20.4 kPa) and those obtained after the recruitment manoeuvre (24.4 kPa) at 40 min. This latter value was also significantly higher than PaO2 measured in the PEEP (16.2 kPa) and ZEEP (18.7 kPa) groups. Application of PEEP also had a significant effect on oxygenation; no such intra-group difference was observed in the ZEEP group. No complications occurred. We conclude that during general anaesthesia, the alveolar recruitment strategy was an efficient way to improve arterial oxygenation.  (+info)

Dynamics of re-expansion of atelectasis during general anaesthesia. (4/295)

A major cause of impaired gas exchange during general anaesthesia is atelectasis, causing pulmonary shunt. A 'vital capacity' (VC) manoeuvre (i.e. inflation of the lungs up to 40 cm H2O, maintained for 15 s) may re-expand atelectasis and improve oxygenation. However, such a manoeuvre may cause adverse cardiovascular effects. Reducing the time of maximal inflation may improve the margin of safety. The aim of this study was to analyse the change over time in the amount of atelectasis during a VC manoeuvre in 12 anaesthetized adults with healthy lungs. I.v. anaesthesia with controlled mechanical ventilation (VT 9 (SD 1) ml kg-1) was used. For the VC manoeuvre, the lungs were inflated up to an airway pressure (Paw) of 40 cm H2O. This pressure was maintained for 26 s. Atelectasis was assessed by analysis of computed x-ray tomography. The amount of atelectasis, measured at the base of the lungs, was 4.0 (SD 2.7) cm2 after induction of anaesthesia. The decrease in the amount of atelectasis over time during the VC manoeuvre was described by a negative exponential function with a time constant of 2.6 s. At an inspired oxygen concentration of 40%, PaO2 increased from 17.2 (4.0) kPa before to 22.2 (6.0) kPa (P = 0.013) after the VC manoeuvre. Thus in anaesthetized adults undergoing mechanical ventilation with healthy lungs, inflation of the lungs to a Paw of 40 cm H2O, maintained for 7-8 s only, may re-expand all previously collapsed lung tissue, as detected by lung computed tomography, and improve oxygenation. We conclude that the previously proposed time for a VC manoeuvre may be halved in such subjects.  (+info)

Comparable postoperative pulmonary atelectasis in patients given 30% or 80% oxygen during and 2 hours after colon resection. (5/295)

BACKGROUND: High concentrations of inspired oxygen are associated with pulmonary atelectasis but also provide recognized advantages. Consequently, the appropriate inspired oxygen concentration for general surgical use remains controversial. The authors tested the hypothesis that atelectasis and pulmonary dysfunction on the first postoperative day are comparable in patients given 30% or 80% perioperative oxygen. METHODS: Thirty patients aged 18-65 yr were anesthetized with isoflurane and randomly assigned to 30% or 80% oxygen during and for 2 h after colon resection. Chest radiographs and pulmonary function tests (forced vital capacity and forced expiratory volume) were obtained preoperatively and on the first postoperative day. Arterial blood gas measurements were obtained intraoperatively, after 2 h of recovery, and on the first postoperative day. Computed tomography scans of the chest were also obtained on the first postoperative day. RESULTS: Postoperative pulmonary mechanical function was significantly reduced compared with preoperative values, but there was no difference between the groups at either time. Arterial gas partial pressures and the alveolar-arterial oxygen difference were also comparable in the two groups. All preoperative chest radiographs were normal. Postoperative radiographs showed atelectasis in 36% of the patients in the 30%-oxygen group and in 44% of those in the 80%-oxygen group. Relatively small amounts of pulmonary atelectasis (expressed as a percentage of total lung volume) were observed on the computed tomography scans, and the percentages (mean +/- SD) did not differ significantly in the patients given 30% oxygen (2.5% +/- 3.2%) or 80% oxygen (3.0% +/- 1.8%). These data provided a 99% chance of detecting a 2% difference in atelectasis volume at an alpha level of 0.05. CONCLUSIONS: Lung volumes, the incidence and severity of atelectasis, and alveolar gas exchange were comparable in patients given 30% and 80% perioperative oxygen. The authors conclude that administration of 80% oxygen in the perioperative period does not worsen lung function. Therefore, patients who may benefit from generous oxygen partial pressures should not be denied supplemental perioperative oxygen for fear of causing atelectasis.  (+info)

Positive end-expiratory pressure improves respiratory function in obese but not in normal subjects during anesthesia and paralysis. (6/295)

BACKGROUND: Morbidly obese patients, during anesthesia and paralysis, experience more severe impairment of respiratory mechanics and gas exchange than normal subjects. The authors hypothesized that positive end-expiratory pressure (PEEP) induces different responses in normal subjects (n = 9; body mass index < 25 kg/m2) versus obese patients (n = 9; body mass index > 40 kg/m2). METHODS: The authors measured lung volumes (helium technique), the elastances of the respiratory system, lung, and chest wall, the pressure-volume curves (occlusion technique and esophageal balloon), and the intraabdominal pressure (intrabladder catheter) at PEEP 0 and 10 cm H2O in paralyzed, anesthetized postoperative patients in the intensive care unit or operating room after abdominal surgery. RESULTS: At PEEP 0 cm H2O, obese patients had lower lung volume (0.59 +/- 0.17 vs. 2.15 +/- 0.58 l [mean +/- SD], P < 0.01); higher elastances of the respiratory system (26.8 +/- 4.2 vs. 16.4 +/- 3.6 cm H2O/l, P < 0.01), lung (17.4 +/- 4.5 vs. 10.3 +/- 3.2 cm H2O/l, P < 0.01), and chest wall (9.4 +/- 3.0 vs. 6.1 +/- 1.4 cm H2O/l, P < 0.01); and higher intraabdominal pressure (18.8 +/-7.8 vs. 9.0 +/- 2.4 cm H2O, P < 0.01) than normal subjects. The arterial oxygen tension was significantly lower (110 +/- 30 vs. 218 +/- 47 mmHg, P < 0.01; inspired oxygen fraction = 50%), and the arterial carbon dioxide tension significantly higher (37.8 +/- 6.8 vs. 28.4 +/- 3.1, P < 0.01) in obese patients compared with normal subjects. Increasing PEEP to 10 cm H2O significantly reduced elastances of the respiratory system, lung, and chest wall in obese patients but not in normal subjects. The pressure-volume curves were shifted upward and to the left in obese patients but were unchanged in normal subjects. The oxygenation increased with PEEP in obese patients (from 110 +/-30 to 130 +/- 28 mmHg, P < 0.01) but was unchanged in normal subjects. The oxygenation changes were significantly correlated with alveolar recruitment (r = 0.81, P < 0.01). CONCLUSIONS: During anesthesia and paralysis, PEEP improves respiratory function in morbidly obese patients but not in normal subjects.  (+info)

Reverse mismatched ventilation-perfusion pulmonary imaging with accumulation of technetium-99m-DTPA in a mucous plug in a main bronchus: a case report. (7/295)

The phenomenon of reverse mismatched ventilation-perfusion on pulmonary scintigraphy is a fairly common occurrence. We present a patient who was experiencing decreasing oxygen saturation and had a reverse mismatched ventilation-perfusion imaging pattern associated with radiotracer retention in a main bronchus. Technetium-99m-DTPA aerosol lung imaging showed tracer retention in the trachea and right main bronchus, absent ventilation in the right lung, and normal ventilation in the left lung. Technetium-99m-MAA perfusion lung images showed normal perfusion of the left lung and some perfusion in the right lung. These findings represented a reverse ventilation-perfusion mismatch. Reverse mismatched ventilation-perfusion, or totally absent ventilation with preservation of some perfusion in the right lung, resulted in functional intrapulmonary shunting, which explained the decreasing oxygen saturation observed in this patient. A concurrent portable chest radiograph showed elevation of the right hemidiaphragm, a shift of the mediastinum to the right, deviation of the endotracheal tube, narrowing of the intercostal space of the right thorax, and collapse of the right lower lobe. The radiographic findings of underventilation of the right lung with atelectasis of the right lower lobe were due to mucous plugging the right main bronchus.  (+info)

Targeted disruption of NDST-1 gene leads to pulmonary hypoplasia and neonatal respiratory distress in mice. (8/295)

In order to address the biological function of GlcNAc N-deacetylase/N-sulfotransferase-1 (NDST-1), we disrupted the NDST-1 gene by homologous recombination in mouse embryonic stem cells. The NDST-1 null mice developed respiratory distress and atelectasis that subsequently caused neonatal death. Morphological examination revealed type II pneumocyte immaturity, which was characterized by an increased glycogen content and a reduced number of lamellar bodies and microvilli. Biochemical analysis further indicated that both total phospholipids and disaturated phosphatidylcholine were reduced in the mutant lung. Our data revealed that NDST-1 was essential for the maturation of type II pneumocytes and its inactivation led to a neonatal respiratory distress syndrome.  (+info)

Bronchial suction does not facilitate lung collapse when using a double-lumen tube during video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery: a randomized controlled trial
Thoracic surgery requires the effective collapse of the non-ventilated lung. In the majority of cases, we accomplished, accelerated lung collapse using a double-lumen tube (DLT). We hypothesized that using the two-minute disconnection technique with a DLT would improve lung collapse during subsequent one-lung ventilation. Fifty patients undergoing thoracoscopic surgery with physical classification I or II according to the American Society of Anesthesiologists were randomly divided into two groups for respiratory management of one-lung ventilation (OLV). In group N, OLV was initiated after the DLT was disconnected for 2 min; the initiation time began when the surgeon made the skin incision. In group C, OLV was initiated when the surgeon commenced the skin incision and scored the quality of lung collapse (using a four-point ordinal scale). The surgeons satisfaction or comfort with the surgical conditions was assessed using a visual analogue scale. rSO2 level, mean arterial pressure, pulse oxygen
Atelectasis refers to collapse of part of the lung. It may include a lung subsegment or the entire lung and is almost always a secondary phenomenon, with no sex or race proclivities; however, it may occur more frequently in younger children than in older children and adolescents.
RPE was first described by Pinault in 1853, after the removal of pleural fluid.2 Since then many cases have been reported in the literature, describing reexpansion of the collapsed lung following drainage of fluid or air. The incidence of RPE following pleural effusion or pneumothorax is between 0 and 1%.3 Risk factors for development of RPE include duration of lung collapse , 3 days, removal of over 2,000 mL of fluid, age in the fourth decade of life, and an onset within 24 hours from reexpansion of the collapsed lung.1. The etiology of RPE is not fully appreciated. Current evidence suggests RPE is the result of increased permeability of the pulmonary capillaries due to alterations in lymph flow, protein concentration, and colloid pressure following reexpansion. Koike et al, in their study with 14 unanaesthetized sheep, demonstrated increased caudal mediastinal lymph flow post reexpansion after 24 hours of lung collapse.4 Clinical studies by Buczko et al and Sprung et al measured protein ...

It is not going to be a nice experience when your lung collapse. Pneumothorax happens when your lung collapse and you will get severe chest pain and breathing difficulties. When that happens, a tube will have to be inserted into the affected lung to drain away the air leakage. That will require a few days of hospitalisation. Anyway if I were to do the lung biopsy, I need to be hospitalised for one night to let them monitor me after the biopsy...because there is a risk of pneumothorax. Its not safe to return home after the lung biopsy because you never know if you will get it. Not only that, the lung biopsy will be performed guided by a CT scan. This means I will be exposed to radiation again. CT scan radiation is 500 times the radiation of a normal x-ray. Ok, that is even worse ...

Endotracheal tube (ETT) cuff herniation is a rare, and often difficult to diagnose, cause of bronchial obstruction. We present a case of outside cuff herniation of an endotracheal tube that caused pulmonary right lung atelectasis. A 29-year-old man ,a case of car accident with multiple fractures, was admitted to the emergency ward and transferred to the operating room(OR) for open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF) of all fractures .The procedures were done under general anesthesia (G/A). The past medical history of the patient did not indicate any problem. Anesthesia was induced with thiopental, atracurium and then maintained by propofol and remifentanyl infusions and 100% O2 via orally inserted ETT. The patient was positioned in left lateral decubitus position for operation. Two hours after induction of anesthesia, the oxygen saturation level dropped to 85 % and the breath sounds in the right side of the chest were weakened. The chest x-ray images showed right lung atelectasis especially ...
If left untreated, atelectasis may be fatal in patients and progress to pneumonia, sepsis, and respiratory failure. Common complications of atelectasis include pneumonia, bronchiectasis, hypoxemia, respiratory failure, and sepsis. Depending on the extent of lung involvement at the time of diagnosis, the prognosis may vary. However, the prognosis is generally regarded as good. Involvement of a small portion of the lung is not associated with life threatening complications, as the remaining lung compensates for the hypoxemia. However, atelectasis is associated with poor prognosis if the surface area of lung involvement is very large, in the presence of pre-existing lung disease, in case of failure to remove obstruction and in case of atelectasis due to cancer. ...

A close study of postoperative massive collapse of the lung (pulmonary atelectasis) indicates its marked similarity to pneumonia. These two conditions have many characteristics in common and, from the study of atelectasis, we may draw certain deductions relative to pneumonia.. As observed by Norris and Landis,1 practically every case of pneumonia spreads to some extent. In some cases it slowly extends spreading from lobe to lobe by contiguity; in others the process apparently develops afresh at different points in the same or the opposite lung, and, in double pneumonia, both bases may be affected simultaneously or the apex of one ...

Although the sine qua non of atelectasis is the loss of volume of lung tissue, whether the entire lung, lobar, segmental or subsegmental, a myriad of pathologic factors may induce the same result.1 Resorptive atelectasis is due to endobronchial obstruction, intralumenally as by a tumor or mucus plug or by extrinsic bronchial compression, as in lymphadenopathy.2 Passive atelectasis is caused by parenchymal compression extrinsic to the lung tissue, such as a pleural effusion, pneumothorax, or hypovenilation, while an intraparenchymal mass may, itself, result in compressive atelectasis of an adjacent region of lung. Finally, interstitial fibrosis of any source leads to a loss of lung volume known as cicatrizing atelectasis 3 Acute, obstructive atelectasis often leads to sudden respiratory distress, but insidious pulmonary volume loss may be asymptomatic.1 Therefore, radiology plays a key role in detecting the presence, location and possible source of atelectasis. Plain film radiography provides a ...

Treatment is directed at correcting the underlying cause. Post-surgical atelectasis is treated by physiotherapy, focusing on deep breathing and encouraging coughing. An incentive spirometer is often used as part of the breathing exercises. Walking is also highly encouraged to improve lung inflation. People with chest deformities or neurologic conditions that cause shallow breathing for long periods may benefit from mechanical devices that assist their breathing. One method is continuous positive airway pressure, which delivers pressurized air or oxygen through a nose or face mask to help ensure that the alveoli do not collapse, even at the end of a breath. This is helpful, as partially inflated alveoli can be expanded more easily than collapsed alveoli. Sometimes additional respiratory support is needed with a mechanical ventilator..

The term atelectasis, which is defined as diminished lung volume, is derived from the Greek words ateles and ektasis, which mean incomplete expansion (see the image below). Atelectasis may affect all or part of a lung, and it is one of the most common radiographic abnormalities.
Atelectasis is the collapse of one or more sections, or lobes, of the lungs. When you breathe in, the lungs normally expand to fill with air. With atelectasis, a blockage in or pressure in the area around the lung (pleura) keeps the lung from expanding.

We develop tidal-ventilation pulmonary gas-exchange equations that allow pulmonary shunt to have different values during expiration and inspiration, in accordance with lung collapse and recruitment during lung dysfunction (Am. J. Respir. Crit. Care Med. 158 (1998) 1636). Their solutions are tested against published animal data from intravascular oxygen tension and saturation sensors. These equations provide one explanation for (i) observed physiological phenomena, such as within-breath fluctuations in arterial oxygen saturation and blood-gas tension; and (ii) conventional (time averaged) blood-gas sample oxygen tensions. We suggest that tidal-ventilation models are needed to describe within-breath fluctuations in arterial oxygen saturation and blood-gas tension in acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) subjects. Both the amplitude of these oxygen saturation and tension fluctuations, and the mean oxygen blood-gas values, are affected by physiological variables such as inspired oxygen concentration,

BACKGROUND Chest physiotherapy (CPT) has been used in many neonatal nurseries around the world to improve airway clearance and treat lung collapse; however, the evidence to support its use has been conflicting. Despite the large number of studies there is very little evidence of sufficiently good quality on which to base current practice. OBJECTIVES To assess the effects of active CPT techniques, such as percussion and vibration followed by suction compared with suction alone, on the respiratory system in infants receiving mechanical ventilation. Additionally, differences between types of active CPT techniques were assessed. SEARCH STRATEGY Our search included The Cochrane Library (Issue 2, 2007), MEDLINE (1966 to 2007), EMBASE (1988 to 2007), CINAHL, Science Citation Index, previous reviews including cross-references, abstracts, conference proceedings and grey literature.

TUESDAY, Dec. 17, 2019 (HealthDay News) -- Nikki Moreno had spent nearly a year struggling for breath, and nothing seemed to help.. Not the inhalers, not the antibiotics and other drugs. Nothing seemed to help her breathe, and nothing got rid of her constant cough.. It finally got so bad that she landed in the emergency room at UCLA Medical Center in Santa Monica.. Moreno was not prepared for the series of shocks that followed.. First, doctors told her that her left lung had completely collapsed. Then Moreno underwent a bronchoscopy that revealed the reason for her lung collapse -- a 2-centimeter tumor had blocked the airway.. Doctors diagnosed her with stage 4 lung cancer, and told her the cancer had spread to her brain, spine, kidney and pancreas.. Moreno had never smoked. Shed never lived with anyone who smoked. The most exposure to secondhand smoke shed ever experienced was at outdoor concerts.. I was completely shocked, said Moreno, 43, a bookkeeper living in Los Angeles. That was not ...
Together, these studies provide evidence that exposure to diabetes in utero may have adverse effects on an infants lung development, including delayed lung maturation and an increased risk for a condition known as respiratory distress syndrome (RDS). RDS is a breathing disorder in which the air sacs (alveoli) in a newborns lungs collapse because the production of a substance that coats the alveoli (surfactant) is absent or insufficient.. According to lead author Dr. Meghan Azad, a Research Scientist at the Childrens Hospital Research Institute of Manitoba, a potential mechanism for the association between diabetes in pregnancy and infant RDS is related to high circulating levels of glucose in the diabetic mother.. From the studies we reviewed, it appears that newborns who were exposed to hyperglycemia in utero may have impaired production of surfactant proteins that are important for proper lung function, said Dr. Azad, who is also an assistant professor in Pediatrics & Child Health at the ...
Summary Sir, this patient has a pleural effusion. On examination of the chest, there is reduced chest expansion on the right side. The percussion note is stony dull, and there is reduced air entry and vocal resonance for one half of the posterior hemithorax. The patient is not in respiratory distress, and the trachea is central. With regards to underlying aetiology, there is no palpable lymphadenopathy, clubbing or tar staining of the fingers to suggest a mitotic process. I would like to measure the patients temperature to look for evidence of infection, although there are no crepitations to suggest this. There is no arthropathy or rash which would suggest underlying autoimmune disease. Possible differential diagnoses for dullness with reduced air entry include pleural thickening, asbestos-related pleural disease, primary mitotic processes of the pleura, lung collapse - although I would expect tracheal deviation towards the affected side, consolidation and previous lobectomy / pneumonectomy - ...
Chest Hurts When Taking A Deep Breath , IYTmed.com. For instance, an asthma attack can make it hard to get enough air into your lungs.Its called Mycoplasma pneumoniae.Ok thanks, ***** ***** to my Dr.Sometimes pneumonia can cause pockets of pus to build up in your lungs.Not only would you have swallowing pain, but you might also have difficulty swallowing, food might get stuck in your esophagus, or you might get heartburn.If for instance, you smoke, you damage the lungs so much that the lungs collapse over time.While flu viruses arent responsive to drug therapies (aside from antivirals that are effective up to 48-hours after symptoms appear), the good news is that these secondary bacterial infections usually respond to antimicrobial therapy, which can kill of bacteria or fungi, it adds..

These findings are being published in the July 6, 2010, edition of the journal CHEST.. LAM is a rare but serious lung disease that affects women, causing shortness of breath and lung collapse, called a pneumothorax. The disease occurs when an unusual type of cell invades the lungs and causes tissue destruction by creating holes or cysts in the lung. It can be fatal.. Lisa Young, MD, lead author on the study and researcher at UC and Cincinnati Childrens, says that these findings will help with diagnosing LAM and may also be helpful in screening for LAM in women with Tuberous Sclerosis Complex (TSC), a genetic disorder that causes tumors to form in many different organs. TSC is a risk factor for the development of LAM.. In this study, the test was used to analyze the amount of a specific protein-vascular endothelial growth factor-D, or VEGF-D-in patients blood. VEGF-D promotes the growth of lymphatic vessels and blood vessels and can be involved in the spread of cancer.. Researchers performed ...
Our results suggest that in ventilated pediatric patients with ALI: both SI and SRS effectively raise PaO2 and FRC; SI may be associated with temporary desaturation in children; SRS is associated with an increase in PaCO2 during the maneuver; and both SI and SRS are hemodynamically well tolerated.. Several studies have noted that both SI and SRS are effective in raising PaO2 in adults and children with ARDS.7,11,13,23 When an SRS was applied following an SI, in non-randomized fashion, Borges et al11 noted that PaO2 rose further following SRS. When assessed using computed tomography, Borges et al also noted regions of lung collapse that had not opened following SI became aerated following SRS. This is consistent with the increase in FRC we demonstrated following SRS, compared to following SI. However, in both the Borges et al study and our study, the non-randomized, sequential application of SRS after an SI precludes any conclusions regarding the efficacy of one maneuver over the other; it is ...
The definition of a pneumothorax is an accumulation of air outside the lungs, but inside the chest wall. The air outside the lung prevents the lungs from inflating normally, and can lead to lung collapse. There are several variations of pneumothorax. ...
Adaptation to respiration at birth depends upon the synthesis of pulmonary surfactant, a lipid-protein complex that reduces surface tension at the air-liquid interface in the alveoli and prevents lung collapse during the ventilatory cycle. Herein, we demonstrated that the gene encoding a subunit of the endoplasmic reticulum membrane complex, EMC3, also known as TMEM111 (Emc3/Tmem111), was required for murine pulmonary surfactant synthesis and lung function at birth. Conditional deletion of Emc3 in murine embryonic lung epithelial cells disrupted the synthesis and packaging of surfactant lipids and proteins, impaired the formation of lamellar bodies, and induced the unfolded protein response in alveolar type 2 (AT2) cells. EMC3 was essential for the processing and routing of surfactant proteins, SP-B and SP-C, and the biogenesis of the phospholipid transport protein ABCA3. Transcriptomic, lipidomic, and proteomic analyses demonstrated that EMC3 coordinates the assembly of lipids and proteins in ...

At age 13 my asthma which Id suffered from since age 18mths seemed to become uncontrollable. I spent most of my early teens on the childrens ward at a local hospital, where doctors prescribed every asthma medication they could think of with no success, during that time I suffered chest infections every 6wks and experienced my first lung collapse. Eventually after a year of trials with different asthma medications a CT Scan of my lungs was carried out. My doctor at first blamed the CT Scanner for distorting the images and asked for a repeat scan. This confirmed their worst fears, there was a reason asthma medication wasnt working that was because I had a lung disease called interstitial lung disease (ILD) which is progressive, irreversible and eventually fatal. No sooner were the reports in I was transferred to a specialist childrens hospital, they found I had a massive pneumonia and already had large amounts of permanent lung damage. It took 3mths in critical care for me to recover enough ...

The bacterial form of pneumonia occurs when the responsible organism enters the lower respiratory tract, primarily through inhalation or choking, but an organism can also enter the body through the bloodstream. The body responds severely with bronchitis, swelling, lack of blood supply, tissue death, abscess formation, and even lung collapse. If the animal has a poor immune system, then even bacteria that are normally present in the mouth, throat and lungs can become infectious. Due to all of this, there may be very low levels of oxygen available in the blood.. Fungal infections usually occur when the spores are inhaled, entering the lung (and sometimes the bloodstream). This triggers the rabbits immune system to send white blood cells to fight the invading organism. These cells are then intercepted and engulfed by the organisms, releasing a chemical (cytokine) which impairs oxygen distribution in the lungs.. Viral infections occur in much the same way, except it is the virus which enters the ...
Lung cancer is by far the most common disease for long-term somkers. Other common cancers include mouth, larynx, tongue and skin. Later research has shown that kidney, bladder, cervix and breast cancers are also common with long-term smokers. COPD stands for Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, which ranges from a very mild case of bronchitis, to more severe cases. Emphysema is were the air sacs in your lungs collapse and theres nowhere for the oxygen to come and go. This ends with a person basically smothering to death. More less serious effects include permanent nasal congestion, coughing, vision problems, gum disease. ...
BPT) - Working mom Betsy had a fulfilling career and a loving family. The only thing standing in the way of her ability to fully enjoy her life was a persistent cough that just wouldnt stop. Eventually, instead of doing the things she enjoyed, like spending time with her twin boys or going to dinner with friends, her life became something else entirely. That nagging cough - over and over again - coupled with difficulty breathing and fatigue made her feel weaker and weaker.. Betsy had a history of spontaneous lung collapses and a cough that would come and go, but her symptoms gradually became worse and began to impact her life. After a visit to her doctor, Betsy was diagnosed with bronchitis and given remedies to soothe her coughing. When weeks passed and she saw no improvement to her health, she knew she had to find answers.. I tried to read my boys books at night and it was a real struggle just to get through the book without coughing… Not knowing what was happening to me, nobody being able ...

What we see is pleural thickening (curved arrow), blunting of the costophrenic angle and a peripheral rounded lesion (blue arrow). It is slightly ill-defined, which favours a pulmonary origin (option 3) over loculated pleural fluid (option 2). Aspiration of blood (option 1) should occur in the right side and gives an air-space pattern.. The right answer is option 4. There is a thing called satisfaction of search (Muppet calls it satisfaction of sex), meaning that, even though we see the abnormality, we have to look elsewhere. And, when we look, we discover that the left hilum is markedly descended (red arrow) and the major fissure is displaced medially and downward (white arrows), both findings indicating marked loss of volume of left lower lobe.. When we put together a peripheral rounded lesion, loss of volume and pleural thickening, rounded atelectasis immediately comes to mind and it is the correct diagnosis in this case. The typical findings of this condition are confirmed with CT (Fig ...
Round atelectasis is a benign inflammatory condition most frequently observed in patients with asbestos exposure but it can also result from a variety of chronic pleural diseases like infection. It has not previously been described in sarcoidosis. We report the occurrence of round atelectasis in four previously diagnosed sarcoidosis patients who were under follow up at our outpatient clinic. Three patients had symptoms consisting of thoracic pain, dry cough and sensation of fullness at the posterior thorax, respectively. Chest roentgenogram showed subpleural or pleural based opacity with diameters ranging from 2 to 3 cm in each of the patients. Chest computerized tomography (CT) revealed features of round atelectasis. Fiberoptic bronchoscopy with transbronchial lung biopsy was performed. Diagnosis was confirmed by the histopathologic examination of the biopsy samples. The mechanical influence of a prior pleural effusion due to sarcoidosis may be the predominant mechanism underlying the onset of ...
Pneumothorax. Traumatic pneumothorax is the most frequent type of pneumothorax in dogs. It most often occurs due to blunt trauma (i.e., vehicular accidents, being kicked by a horse), which causes parenchymal pulmonary damage to the lung and a closed pneumothorax. When the thorax is forcefully compressed against a closed glottis, rupture of the lung or bronchial tree may occur. Alternately, pulmonary parenchyma may be torn due to shearing forces on the lung. Pulmonary trauma occasionally results in subpleural bleb formation, similar to those seen with spontaneous pneumothorax. Open pneumothorax occurs less commonly, but is also frequently due to trauma (i.e., gun shot, bite or stab wounds, lacerations secondary to rib fractures). Some penetrating injuries are called sucking chest wounds, because large defects in the chest wall allow an influx of air into the pleural space when the animal inspires. These large, open chest wounds may allow enough air to enter the pleural space that lung collapse ...
Born four weeks early in Wagga Wagga, the new Townsville University Hospital Intern didnt have the normal entry into the world.. My parents told me I wasnt born crying, which raised alarm bells, so I was airlifted to Canberra Hospital, said Dr Godde.. There she was cared for by Dr Gaun Koh and Dr Ryan Reynolds. They diagnosed her with Hyaline Membrane Disease, now known as Infant Respiratory Distress Syndrome.. It meant that the alveoli in my lungs didnt have enough surfactant in them. If you dont have it, when you breathe out your lungs collapse and its hard to open them again.. Due to the lack of oxygen she had more complications including Pulmonary Hypertension and Pneumothorax. Dr Koh tried all he could to give her the best chance at survival.. They put chest tubes in to try and help me breathe. They had me on 100% oxygen, which helped, but as soon as they started to drop it I would start to decline. It was a bit of a balancing act, because if you have 100% oxygen for a prolonged ...
Catamenial pneumothorax is a condition of air leaking into the pleural space (pneumothorax) occurring in conjunction with menstrual periods (catamenial refers to menstruation), believed to be caused primarily by endometriosis of the pleura (the membrane surrounding the lung). Onset of lung collapse is less than 72 hours after menstruation. Typically, it occurs in women aged 30-40 years, but has been diagnosed in young girls as early as 10 years of age and post menopausal women (exclusively in women of menstrual age) most with a history of pelvic endometriosis. Endometrial tissue attaches within the thoracic cavity, forming chocolate-like cysts. Generally the parietal pleura is involved, but the lung itself, the visceral layer, the diaphragm, and more rarely the tracheobronchial tree may also be afflicted. The mechanism through which endometrial tissue reaches the thorax remains unclear. Defects in the diaphragm, which are found often in affected individuals, could provide an entry path, as could ...
It is a of cancer whose occurrence is common as an aftermath of previous longterm exposure to asbestos. It can basically be sub categorized into pleural mesothelioma lung cancer and the peritoneal mesothelioma cancer. The kind under discussion includes the alignment of the cancer besides the affected lung. It falls into the category of the rarest kinds of cancer.Common symptoms include wheezing and pain in the lungs and the overall chest wall. In spite of the above mentioned symptom this disease may not show itself for over two decades. The advanced stage might embody a tumor mass, preceding pneumothorax or a conceivable lung collapse. Although its circulation to the remaining body is unusual but not impossible. The pleural tumor presents itself on the face of the affected lung.Its diagnosis is ordinarily an arduous task due to the similarity of symptoms that are mutual with several other diseases. The diagnosis procedure initiates with the review of the individuals medical history. A chest ...
Rib fractures are a common injury of trauma patients and can cause significant pain which, if inadequately treated, can lead to impaired breathing, lung collapse, and respiratory failure. Hence, it is crucial to manage pain associated with rib fractures. Currently, epidurals are used to treat the pain, but placement can be risky as rib fractures are often associated with other injuries and complications.. An alternative pain management option is the ON-Q® Pain Relief System. It is an FDA-approved device that automatically and continuously delivers medication to the region of the thoracic intercostal nerves. One study by Truitt et al (2010)demonstrated that the ON-Q® system effectively reduced pain and increased lung volumes after one hour, in patients with three or more rib fractures. However, that study sample was small and did not have a comparison group. In this study, we will compare two groups: 1) ON-Q system and 2) epidural analgesia. We hypothesize that trauma patients with three or ...

primary endpoint included, PaO2/FiO2 < 300 mmHg and/or the presence of newly developed lung lesions (lung infiltration and atelectasis) within 72 hours of the operation. To monitor safety during OLV, SpO2, PaCO2, and PIP were repeatedly measured. Results: During OLV, although 58% of the PV group needed elevated FiO2 to maintain an SpO2 above 95%, PIP was significantly lower than in the CV group whereas the mean PaCO2 values remained at 35-40 mmHg in both groups. Importantly, in the PV group, the incidence of the primary endpoint of pulmonary dysfunction was significantly lower than in the CV group (the incidence of PaO2/FiO2 < 300 mmHg, lung infiltration, or atelectasis : 4% vs. 22%, P < 0.05). Conclusion: Compared with the traditional large VT and volume-controlled ventilation, the application of small VT and PEEP through pressure-controlled ventilation was associated with a lower incidence of postoperative lung dysfunction and satisfactory gas exchange. ...
Recognize the presence of lobar collapse on CxR: ; Collapse = atelectasis, decrease in volume of a lung, lobe, or segment ; Obstruction collapse: most common, air present in alveoli distal to obstruction is absorbed, lung segment decreases in volume ; Compression collapse: external force squeezes air out of lung (PTX, pleural effusion) ; Contraction collapse: scarring causes decreased volume (TB, fibrosis) ; Direct signs: displacement of fissures, increased radiopacity, crowding of vascular markings or air bronchograms ; Indirect signs: hilar displacement, elevation of diaphragm, shift of mediastinum, narrowing the rib cage, compensatory emphysema ; RLL or LLL Collapse: posterior, medial, or downward collapse, major fissure displaced, major fissure medially displaced ; RML Collapse: minor fissure displaced downwards, silhouette sign along right heart border ; Lingular Collapse: silhouette sign along left heart border ; RUL Collapse: upward, medial, anterior collapse, minor fissure is displaced ...
The right interlobar artery is not visible, because it is not surrounded by aerated lung but by the collapsed lower lobe, which is adjacent to the right atrium..

Notice the reappearance of the right interlobar artery (red arrow) and the normal right heart border (blue arrow).. ...
Obesity is considered a global epidemic. Its continuous increase in prevalence places the anesthestist in conflict with consequences of this condition. The most prominent alteration in the respiratory system is the reduction of the residual functional capacity, which occurs mainly due to the reduction of the chest and lung complacence. This impacts on the mechanic respiratory and on gas exchange. There are several strategies to minimize this impact on general anesthesia. Proclive position increases the apnea time during induction. One should avoid to the maximum the Trendelenburg and lithotomy positions, since they worsen the respiratory function. Maximum caution should be taken in airway management due to the increased risk of difficulties of ventilation and intubation in the obese. Before intubation, the patient should be positioned properly. Another strategy is the use of CPAP during the pre-oxigenation phase and the application of alveolar recruitment maneuver in intraoperative period, ...
Background: No externally validated risk score for postoperative pulmonary complications (PPCs) is currently available. The authors tested the generalizability of the Assess Respiratory Risk in Surgical Patients in Catalonia risk score for PPCs in a large European cohort (Prospective Evaluation of a RIsk Score for postoperative pulmonary COmPlications in Europe). Methods: Sixty-three centers recruited 5,859 surgical patients receiving general, neuraxial, or plexus block anesthesia. The Assess Respiratory Risk in Surgical Patients in Catalonia factors (age, preoperative arterial oxygen saturation in air, acute respiratory infection during the previous month, preoperative anemia, upper abdominal or intrathoracic surgery, surgical duration, and emergency surgery) were recorded, along with PPC occurrence (respiratory infection or failure, bronchospasm, atelectasis, pleural effusion, pneumothorax, or aspiration pneumonitis).

Given the findings on your CXR and labs youve narrowed down your DDx to lung parenchymal disease (Out of the equation are cardiac and metabolic/metHb). Still on the table: FB aspiration, pneumonia +/- effusion. Its difficult to account for the pneumothorax (PTX), though.. You go back to the family and ask again about any prior choking/coughing spells or illness/fever. The answer again is no. Your patient continues to maintain oxygen saturations in the 60s, so the decision is made to intubate. ETI goes smoothly and actually O2 sats come up to 90%.. Youre feeling better about the stability of the patient and feel confident that the most likely explanation for this degree of hypoxia and associated X-ray (with severe atelectasis and tracheal shift to the right) is aspirated airway FB. You arrange transfer to a tertiary care centre with pediatric ICU capabilities and readily available bronchoscopy. In the meantime you cover your patient with antibiotics in case of pneumonia. However, as the ...
