Factors influencing the deposition of inhaled particles. (1/1394)

Because the initial deposition pattern of inhaled particles of various toxic agents determines their future clearance and insult to tissue, respiratory tract deposition is important in assessing the potential toxicity of inhaled aerosols. Factors influencing the deposition of inhaled particles can be classified into three main areas: (1) the physics of aerosols, (2) the anatomy of the respiratory tract and (3) the airflow patterns in the lung airways. In the physics of aerosols, the forces acting on a particle and its physical and chemical properties, such as particle size or size distribution, density, shape, hygroscopic or hydrophobic character, and chemical reactions of the particle will affect the deposition. With respect to the anatomy of the respiratory tract, important parameters are the diameters, the lengths, and the branching angles of airway segments, which determine the deposition. Physiological factors include airflow and breathing patterns, which influence particle deposition. Various lung models used in predicting particle deposition are reviewed and discussed. The air-way structures of various animal species are compared, showing the unique structure of the human lung compared to the animal species under study. Regional deposition data in man and dog are reviewed. Recent deposition data for small rodents are presented, showing regional difference in deposition with the right apical lobe having the highest relative deposition.  (+info)

Particle deposition in the trachea: in vivo and in hollow casts. (2/1394)

The pattern of deposition within the respiratory tract of potentially harmful particulates is a major factor in assessing any risk from individual and community exposures. Although the trachea is the most easily observed of the conductive airways, very little information concerning its particle collection characteristics is available, information which is essential for a complete and realistic description of particle deposition patterns within the entire respiratory tract. Data on tracheal deposition are also needed for development of accurate predictive models for particle deposition. The pattern of particle deposition in the trachea, and its relation to air flow, was studied in a hollow cast of the human larynx-tracheobronchial tree. Results were compared with data obtained in humans in vivo and from previous studies in hollow casts. In addition, the relevance of tracheal deposition in the hollow cast test system to deposition in vivo was examined by a direct comparison of deposition in a cast prepared from the lungs of donkeys previously studied in a series of in vivo tests. The disturbance of the air flow within the trachea caused by the larynx promoted the deposition of suspended particulates throughout the length of the trachea, and especially in proximal regions. This proximal deposition was due both to direct impaction from the air jet coming from the glottis and to effects of the tubulent flow. Turbulence produced inhomogenous deposition patterns within the trachea for particles of all sizes, although its effect was more pronounced as size decreased. Tracheal deposition in the human cast was within the range of normal in vivo tracheal depostion only when a larynx was used during cast test exposures; this emphasizes the need for the use of realistic experimental test systems for the study of particle deposition patterns. The relative patterns of deposition in casts of the donkey trachea and in the same tracheas in vivo were similar.  (+info)

Pattern of total and regional lung function in subjects with bronchoconstriction induced by 15-me PGF2 alpha. (3/1394)

Closing volume (single breath nitrogen test), regional ventilation and perfusion (using intravenous xenon-133), and total lung function (TLC, VC, and FEV) were measured before and after intramuscular administration of 250 mug 15-methyl prostaglandin F2alpha (15-me PGF2alpha) in 10 healthy women. The cardiac output was measured with the Minnesota impedance cardiograph model 304A and the transthoracic impedance was used as an expression of the thoracic fluid volume. The slope of the alveolar plateau on the closing volume tracing showed a 271% increase 20 minutes after the prostaglandin administration, at which time the closing volume per cent (CV%) had decreased (P less than 0-01) and the closing capacity (CC%) had increased (P less than 0-05). Vital capacity (VC) decreased (P less than 0-01), residual volume (RV) increased (P less than 0-01), and the total lung capacity (TLC) remained unchanged. The maximal decrease (9%) in FEV1 was seen after 20 minutes. All these measurements except the slope of the alveolar plateau returned to control levels after 60 minutes. The redistribution of regional ventilation was more pronounced than that of the regional pulmonary blood flow. No change was observed in cardiac output and transthoracic impedance. None of the patients experienced any dyspnoea. Our results are consistent with a more pronounced effect of prostaglandin F2alpha on the small airways (the alveolar plateau) than on the larger airways (FEV1). In cases where an increase in the slope of the alveolar plateau is observed, the closing volume per cent should not be used as a measurement of the lung disease. It is concluded that the single breath nitrogen test (N2 closing volume) is more sensitive than the conventional tests.  (+info)

Effect on nasal resistance of an external nasal splint and isotonic exercise. (4/1394)

OBJECTIVES: The now commonplace wearing of external nasal splints by sportsmen and athletes has never been scientifically evaluated. The present study looks into the effect of isotonic exercise on nasal resistance, and examines whether this effect is altered by the wearing of an external nasal splint. METHODS: Twenty subjects not suffering from rhinitis were tested. Nasal resistance measurements were recorded using an anterior rhinomanometer before and after isotonic exercise with and without an external nasal splint. Pulse and blood pressure were measured before and after exercise. RESULTS: Significant changes were observed in pulse (p < 0.001) and both systolic (p < 0.002) and diastolic (p < 0.001) blood pressure in response to exercise. Significant differences were seen in nasal resistance when the splint was applied (p < 0.001) and after exercise (p < 0.003). No significant difference was observed after exercise when the splint was worn (p = 0.167). CONCLUSIONS: External nasal splints decrease nasal resistance at rest but are of little value during isotonic exercise.  (+info)

Cardiopulmonary responses of middle-aged men without cardiopulmonary disease to steady-rate positive and negative work performed on a cycle ergometer. (5/1394)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Understanding physiological responses to negative work allows therapists to be more knowledgeable when they prescribe this form of exercise. The physiological responses of 12 men without cardiopulmonary disease, aged 39 to 65 years (X=49.7, SD=9.3), to negative work (eccentric muscle contractions) and to positive work (concentric muscle contractions) were compared. SUBJECTS AND METHODS: Subjects performed the 2 types of work on a motorized cycle ergometer at pedaling frequencies of 35, 55, and 75 rpm with a constant power output of 60 W. Steady-rate values of oxygen consumption (VO2), heart rate (HR), minute ventilation (VE), tidal volume (VT), and breathing frequency (fb) were obtained during 6 test conditions (positive and negative work at each of the 3 pedaling frequencies). RESULTS: Values for all measures were greater during positive work than during negative work, except for fb. During positive work, values for all variables were greatest at 75 rpm, except for fb. During negative work, VO2 and HR were greater at 75 and 35 rpm than at 55 rpm, and VE and VT were greater at 75 rpm than at 55 rpm. Breathing frequency was not different among pedaling frequencies. CONCLUSION AND DISCUSSION: The results confirmed that negative work performed on a cycle ergometer is associated with low metabolic cost in older men without cardiopulmonary disease. Although VE was determined primarily by changes in VT during negative work, a comparable disproportionate increase in fb was observed at the start of negative work. Such changes in breathing patterns have implications for the prescription of negative work for patients with lung disease.  (+info)

Contribution of gular pumping to lung ventilation in monitor lizards. (6/1394)

A controversial hypothesis has proposed that lizards are subject to a speed-dependent axial constraint that prevents effective lung ventilation during moderate- and high-speed locomotion. This hypothesis has been challenged by results demonstrating that monitor lizards (genus Varanus) experience no axial constraint. Evidence presented here shows that, during locomotion, varanids use a positive pressure gular pump to assist lung ventilation. Disabling the gular pump reveals that the axial constraint is present in varanids but it is masked by gular pumping under normal conditions. These findings support the prediction that the axial constraint may be found in other tetrapods that breathe by costal aspiration and locomote with a lateral undulatory gait.  (+info)

Influence of immersion on respiratory requirements during 30-min cycling exercise. (7/1394)

Immersion is considered to facilitate exercise-based rehabilitation. However, the drag effect of moving limbs in water, likely to increase the respiratory requirements at exercise, is not mentioned in many reports. The energetic and ventilatory requirements of 30 min steady state cycling exercise performed by healthy male subjects in air and during immersion up to the xiphoid in 33 degrees C water were compared. In the first experimental series nine subjects exercised at the same 60% maximal oxygen consumption (V'O2,max) in air and water. In the two ambient conditions, ventilatory variables had similar values, but the ergometric setting had to be reduced during water immersion so that the workload rated only 69+/-20 W (mean+/-SD) in water versus 121+/-32 W (p<0.001) in air. In the second experimental series, the same ergometric work load (122 W) was achieved by nine subjects with an average V'O2 of 2,210+/-300 mL x min(-1) in air versus 2,868+/-268 mL x min(-1) in water (p<0.001). Resting water immersion caused a marked trend for decreasing vital capacity (p=0.06), but no modification of other ventilatory variables. During exercise at similar V'O2, the average values of minute ventilation (V'E), tidal volume (VT), respiratory frequency (fR), tidal inspiratory time (VT/tI) were not different between water and air. However, at similar ergometric workload, V'E, VT, fR, VT/tI and plasma lactate levels were significantly higher in water than in air. Such consequences of the drag effect of water upon limb movements have not been reported in previous studies relying on shorter exercise bouts. Thus, maintaining steady exercise levels in water either led to a decrease in the workload or required a 25% higher oxygen consumption than in air. These findings may be relevant to the prescription of water immersion rehabilitation programmes.  (+info)

Effects of chemical feedback on respiratory motor and ventilatory output during different modes of assisted mechanical ventilation. (8/1394)

The purpose of the study was to examine the effects of chemical feedback on respiratory motor and ventilatory output in conscious subjects ventilated on various modes of assisted mechanical ventilation. Seven subjects were connected to a ventilator and randomly ventilated on assist-volume control (AVC), pressure support (PS) or proportional assist ventilation (PAV). On each mode, the assist level was set to the highest comfortable level. Airway and oesophageal (Poes) pressures, tidal volume, respiratory frequency (fR) and end-tidal carbon dioxide tension (PET,CO2) were measured breath-by-breath. When the subjects were stable on each mode, the fraction of inspired carbon dioxide (FI,CO2) was increased stepwise, and changes in minute ventilation (V'E) and respiratory motor output, estimated by the pressure-time product of all the respiratory muscles per breath (PTPrm) and per minute (PTPminute), were observed. At zero FI,CO2, PTPminute/PET,CO2 did not differ between modes, while V'E/ PTPminute was significantly lower with PAV than that with PS and AVC. As a result V'E/PET,CO2 was significantly lower with PAV, preventing, unlike AVC and PS, a significant drop in PET,CO2. With PAV, independent of CO2, V'E/PTPminute remained constant, while it decreased significantly with increasing CO2 stimulus with PS and AVC. At high PET,CO2 respiratory effort was significantly lower with PAV than that with PS and AVC. In conclusion, the mode of mechanical ventilation modifies the effects of chemical feedback on respiratory motor and ventilatory output. At all carbon dioxide stimulus levels neuroventilatory coupling was better preserved with proportional assist ventilation than with pressure support and assist-volume control ventilation.  (+info)

RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVES: Hyperpolarized (3)He magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) ventilation abnormalities are visible in ex-smokers without airflow limitation, but the clinical relevance of this is not well-understood. Our objective was to phenotype healthy ex-smokers with normal and abnormally elevated ventilation defect percent (VDP). MATERIALS AND METHODS: Sixty ex-smokers without airflow limitation provided written informed consent to (3)He MRI, computed tomography (CT), and pulmonary function tests in a single visit. (3)He MRI VDP and apparent diffusion coefficients (ADCs) were measured for whole-lung and each lung lobe as were CT measurements of emphysema (relative area [RA] with attenuation ≤-950 HU, RA950) and airway morphology (wall area percent [WA%], lumen area [LA] and LA normalized to body surface area [LA/BSA]). RESULTS: In 42 ex-smokers, there was abnormally elevated VDP and no significant differences for pulmonary function, RA950, or airway measurements compared to 18 ex-smokers with
As an asthma attack occurs, all of the airways do not respond uniformly. To understand what is going on, as a simplification, think of the lungs as containing two types of alveoli, one type with seriously deficient ventilation and the other with reasonably good ventilation.. Blood leaving the poorly ventilated alveoli will have a low PO2 and a high PCO2, as you would expect. As a result of the altered blood gases, the respiratory rate goes up to increase ventilation.. Now consider the good alveoli in which air can move in and out more or less normally. Ventilation is now above normal because of the altered blood gases due to the poorly ventilated alveoli. The resulting increased ventilation means the PCO2 in the blood leaving the good alveoli goes below normal. And this can compensate for the high PCO2 in the deficient alveoli.

In addition to proper insulation in your attic, there are other improvements you can make. Adding an attic fan can increase ventilation and provide benefits all year long, not just in the summer. While a whole house fan can help to provide ventilation throughout the home, an attic fan may be more appropriate for your situation. Ask your contractor if you arent sure.. Call the Hayden ventilation experts at ACI Northwest for more information about how to help weatherize your home for year round comfort and efficiency. To get you started, we have included some of the main ways that attic fans can improve overall home efficiency and prevent moisture problems in the home.. Creating more fresh air circulation in your attic not only helps cool the home in the summer, but it can also prevent moisture related damages. In a home that is already well-insulated and has plenty of ventilation, an attic fan will help with overall efficiency by helping to remove the hot air from the attic. In addition to ...
Coal mine longwall face ventilation is an important component of the overall mine ventilation system. Increases in the production rate due to higher capacity mining equipment tend to increase methane emission rates from the coal face, which must be diluted by the face ventilation with a minimal opportunity for assistance from additional control equipment (i.e., surface boreholes). Increases in pan
Acute beta-blocker withholding resulted in decreased ventilatory efficiency mostly from an increase of VCO2-independent regulation of V(E) and less likely from a change in ventilation/perfusion mismatching.

Lung ventilation was mapped in seven healthy male Sprague-Dawley rats (433 ± 24 g) using hyperpolarized 129Xe magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) at 3.0 T, and validated with hyperpolarized 3He MRI under similar ventilator conditions. Ventilation maps were obtained using flip angle variation for offset of RF and relaxation (FAVOR) which is a multiple breath imaging technique that extracts the fractional ventilation parameter, r, on a pixel-by-pixel basis from the dynamic signal enhancement. r is defined as the fractional refreshment of gas per breath. Under the ventilator conditions used in this work, whole-lung measurements of fractional ventilation obtained using hyperpolarized 129Xe were not significantly different from those obtained using hyperpolarized 3He (p = 0.8125 by a Wilcoxon matched pairs test). Fractional ventilation gradients calculated in the superior/inferior (S/I) and anterior/posterior (A/P) directions obtained using hyperpolarized 129Xe were not significantly different from ...

Ventilation is a system of low vents, like soffit vents, and high vents, like ridge and gable vents. To achieve proper ventilation, outside air should enter the attic low at the attic perimeter and exit high near the attic ridge.. You must provide an air gap at the overhang (soffit) and eaves to control the accumulation of moisture. Continuous soffit vents in combination with other outlets (ridge vents, mushroom cap vents, and upper gable vents) will produce the maximum amount of attic intake ventilation. If your roof has minimal or non-existent overhangs, you may not be able to use soffit vents. Consider installing low gable vents located near the attic ceiling but above the top of the level of the attic ceiling insulation. ...

Naturally ventilated buildings can significantly reduce the required energy for cooling and ventilating buildings by drawing in outdoor air using non-mechanical forces. Buoyancy-driven systems are common in naturally ventilated commercial buildings because of their reliable performance in multi-story buildings. Such systems rely on atria or ventilation shafts to provide a pathway for air to rise through the building. Although numerous modeling techniques are used to simulate naturally ventilated buildings, airflow network tools (AFNs) are most commonly used for annual simulations. These AFNs, however, assume minimal momentum within each zone, which is a reasonable approximation in large atria, but is inappropriate in smaller ventilation shafts. This thesis improves AFNs by accounting for momentum effects within ventilation shafts. These improvements are validated by Computation Fluid Dynamics (CFD) models that haven been validated by small scale and full scale experiments. The full scale ...

  • This test has largely been replaced by CT pulmonary angiography for diagnosing pulmonary embolism. (
  • Goldhaber SZ, Piazza G. Pulmonary embolism and deep vein thrombosis. (
  • The purpose of this article is to outline recent progress made in ventilationperfusion (V/Q) scintigraphy imaging techniques and the interpretation systems used for the diagnosis of pulmonary embolism (PE). (
  • Freeman, Leonard M. / Current status of ventilation-perfusion scintigraphy for suspected pulmonary embolism . (
  • Pulmonary embolism (PE) is when a blood clot (thrombus) becomes lodged in an artery in the lung and blocks blood flow to the lung. (
  • The pathophysiology of pulmonary embolism. (
  • Although pulmonary embolism can arise from anywhere in the body, most commonly it arises from the calf veins. (
  • However, most patients with pulmonary embolism have no obvious symptoms at presentation. (
  • The diagnosis of pulmonary embolism should be suspected in patients with respiratory symptoms unexplained by an alternative diagnosis. (
  • Evidence-based literature supports the practice of using clinical scoring systems to determine the clinical probability of pulmonary embolism before proceeding with testing. (
  • [ 3 ] Validated clinical prediction rules should be used to estimate pretest probability of pulmonary embolism and to interpret test results. (
  • Perform diagnostic testing on symptomatic patients with suspected pulmonary embolism to confirm or exclude the diagnosis or until an alternative diagnosis is found. (
  • Routine laboratory findings are nonspecific and are not helpful in pulmonary embolism, although they may suggest another diagnosis. (
  • Typical symptoms of acute aortic dissection include severe chest pain, hypotension or syncope and, hence, mimic acute myocardial infarction or pulmonary embolism. (
  • Introduction: Pulmonary embolism is one of the complications of COVID-19, with reported incidence ranging from 3 to 33 % in non-ICU patients to as high as 40% among ICU patients. (
  • Since the clinical presentations of COVID-19 and Pulmonary embolism overlap, it is difficult to differentiate between these cases. (
  • This study aimed to assess the incidence of pulmonary embolism and associated factors among confirmed Covid-19 Patients in Ethiopia. (
  • Methods: A nested case control study was conducted among 131 patients with COVID-19 (40 COVID-19 patients with Pulmonary embolism and 91 COVID-19 patients with no PE) who were on follow up from May, 2021 to May, 2022. (
  • To identify factors associated with the development of Pulmonary embolism, a multivariable Binary Logistic Regression model with sensitivity analysis was run. (
  • Lung scan or Ventilation Perfusion Scan (VQ scan) - A test used to identify pulmonary embolism (PE). (
  • Pulmonary angiogram - An X-ray image of the lung's blood vessels that is used to detect a pulmonary embolism (PE). (
  • Pulmonary Embolism (PE) - The condition that describes when a thrombus (or piece of a thrombus) has travelled from its original location, through the heart and on to the lungs. (
  • Subcutaneous unfractionated or low ̶ molecular-weight heparin (LMWH) and thromboguards are often used in the treatment of immobile patients to prevent lower-extremity deep venous thrombosis (DVT) and consequent pulmonary embolism (PE). (
  • CTEPH is a form of pulmonary hypertension that can occur when a patient develops a chronic pulmonary embolism , where an embolism ( clot ) gets stuck in one of the lung's blood vessels and turns into scar-like tissue. (
  • Smoking, obesity, use of birth control pills, and conditions like heart disease and cancer can also increase your odds of experiencing a pulmonary embolism. (
  • Safety of the Combination of PERC and YEARS Rules in Patients With Low Clinical Probability of Pulmonary Embolism: A Retrospective Analysis of Two Large European Cohorts. (
  • This study aimed to determine the failure rate of a combination of the PERC and the YEARS rules for the diagnosis of pulmonary embolism (PE) in the emergency department (ED). (
  • Lp is performed with the option of pulmonary embolism. (
  • Acute cardiogenic pulmonary edema treated with mechanical ventilation. (
  • We reviewed 88 episodes of cardiogenic pulmonary edema (CPE) treated with mechanical ventilation to define the clinical features that predict in-hospital mortality. (
  • The variables contained in these models suggest that the prognosis of patients with CPE treated with mechanical ventilation depends primarily on the severity of acute left ventricular injury. (
  • Pulmonary deposition of a nebulised aerosol during mechanical ventilation. (
  • The objective of this report is to examine the impact of HFOV on blunt trauma patients with severe pulmonary contusions who failed or were at a high risk of failing conventional mechanical ventilation. (
  • The authors aimed at determining the effectiveness of protective mechanical ventilation during open abdominal surgery on a modified Clinical Pulmonary Infection Score as primary outcome and postoperative pulmonary function. (
  • Patients were assigned by envelopes to mechanical ventilation with tidal volume of 9 ml/kg ideal body weight and zero-positive end-expiratory pressure (standard ventilation strategy) or tidal volumes of 7 ml/kg ideal body weight, 10 cm H2O positive end-expiratory pressure, and recruitment maneuvers (protective ventilation strategy). (
  • Characteristics and outcomes in adult patients receiving mechanical ventilation: a 28-day international study. (
  • Survival among mechanically ventilated patients depends not only on the factors present at the start of mechanical ventilation, but also on the development of complications and patient management in the intensive care unit. (
  • One-fourth of patients exhibit a high incidence of asynchrony during assisted ventilation, which is associated with a prolonged duration of mechanical ventilation and with excessive levels of ventilatory support. (
  • Among patients with very severe ARDS, 60‐day mortality was not significantly lower with ECMO than with a strategy of conventional mechanical ventilation that included ECMO as rescue therapy, and fewer cases of ischemic stroke. (
  • Mechanical ventilation (MV) may activate the innate immune system, causing the release of cytokines. (
  • Mechanical ventilation induces reversible cytokine increase and leukocyte influx with preserved tissue integrity. (
  • MECHANICAL ventilation (MV) is widely used in general anesthesia and is a lifesaving intervention in critically ill patients. (
  • Mean Acute Physiology and Chronic Health Evaluation (APACHE) II score at admission was 13.1±5.6 and 22 of 58 (37.9%) patients required mechanical ventilation. (
  • The factors independently associated with mortality were: acute renal failure, need for mechanical ventilation, chronic pancreatitis, sepsis, acute respiratory distress syndrome, and nosocomial pneumonia. (
  • We describe that rarely endotracheal intubation with mechanical ventilation has been required to treat the acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) and the diffuse alveolar hemorrhage (DAH) associated with the acute toxicity of SC inhalation. (
  • We describe the second reported case of successful utilization of mechanical ventilation and extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) in order to treat acute pulmonary toxicity caused by SC inhalation by a water pipe. (
  • Failure to successfully treat respiratory insufficiency, ARDS, and DAH caused by SC with endotracheal intubation and mechanical ventilation is even rarer. (
  • Intubation, with subsequent mechanical ventilation, is a common life-saving intervention in the emergency department (ED). Given the increasing length of stay of ventilated patients in EDs, it is necessary for emergency practitioners to have a good understanding of techniques to optimize mechanical ventilation and minimize complications. (
  • While the fundamental principles underlying mechanical ventilatory support have changed little over the decades, much progress has been made in our understanding of the secondary pathophysiologic changes associated with positive-pressure ventilation. (
  • Several recent clinical trials have demonstrated that optimizing ventilatory parameters reduces overall duration of mechanical ventilation and organ failure. (
  • Patients with a mean age of 47 years had a mortality rate of 3 to 5%, oxygen therapy was necessary in 42% of these patients, 5% were admitted to the ICU, 2.3% underwent invasive mechanical ventilation (IMV), and of these, 1.4% died 6,7 . (

  • Inhaled nitric oxide in preterm infants undergoing mechanical ventilation. (
  • High-frequency oscillatory ventilation versus conventional mechanical ventilation for very-low-birth-weight infants. (
  • During follow-up, respiratory distress regressed, oxygen necessity decreased and mechanical ventilation was not needed. (
  • A brief report: the use of high-frequency oscillatory ventilation for severe pulmonary contusion. (
  • High frequency oscillatory ventilation (HFOV) is a ventilatory mode that employs a lung protective strategy consistent with the ARDSNet low tidal volume ventilation strategy and may result in reduced morbidity. (
  • Methods: Fifteen adult baboons were randomized to one of three ventilatory modes (CON, high- frequency flow interruption [HFFI], or high-frequency oscillatory ventilation [HFO]) after moderate smoke injury. (
  • This study describes a high-frequency oscillatory ventilation (HFOV) protocol for term and near-term infants with acute respiratory failure (ARF) and reports results of its prospective application. (
  • Pro/con clinical debate: High-frequency oscillatory ventilation is better than conventional ventilation for premature infants. (
  • Respiratory mechanics during high-frequency oscillatory ventilation: a physical model and preterm infant study. (
  • This can also be useful for assessment of the reversibility of pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) with vasodilatory therapy. (
  • Given this, European guidelines recommend first evaluating for significant group 2 or 3 disease by ordering a TTE, pulmonary function tests with arterial blood gas assessment, and chest imaging. (
  • In patients at risk for heritable pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH), screening for gene mutations such as BMPR2 also may be considered. (
  • The classic finding on a chest radiograph from a patient with pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) is enlargement of central pulmonary arteries, attenuation of peripheral vessels, and oligemic lung fields (see the first and second images below). (
  • The patient was found to have severe pulmonary arterial hypertension. (
  • Because V/Q is critical to gas exchange and as many pulmonary diseases cause ventilation-perfusion mismatches, it is well worth understanding the effect of changing V/Q on arterial gases, and the regional differences in V/Q across the lung and the lung's responses to maintain V/Q when it deviates from normal. (
  • As ventilation and perfusion are matched then equilibrium is reached and the blood leaves with arterial gas tensions that are the same as alveolar tensions (figure 13.2). (
  • The six-minute walking test accompanied by pulse oximetry and ventilation assessment in patients with pulmonary arterial hypertension. (
  • A new study was presented during 2013 ERS Congress with the aim was to evaluate exercise capacity, oxygen desaturation and minute ventilation (VE) during six-minute walking test (6MWT) in patients with pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH). (
  • Idiopathic pulmonary arterial hypertension (IPAH) is a rare disease characterized by elevated pulmonary artery pressure with no apparent cause. (
  • Typically, the echocardiogram demonstrates evidence of increased pulmonary arterial (PA) pressure, accompanied by an enlarged right ventricle (see the image below). (
  • In approximately a third of patients with pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH), Doppler echocardiography demonstrates right-to-left shunting across a patent foramen ovale. (
  • Pulmonary hypertension is defined as mean pulmonary arterial pressure of 25 mm Hg or greater. (
  • Despite advances in echocardiography, pulmonary hypertension still requires a right heart catheterization (RHC) demonstrating mean pulmonary arterial pressure ≥ 25 mm Hg at rest for confirmation. (
  • A second critical information from the RHC that is central to the diagnosis is the pulmonary arterial occlusion or wedge pressure (Pawp). (
  • For patients with World Health Organization (WHO) group I cause of pulmonary hypertension, also known as pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH), the Pawp should be less than 15 mm Hg. (
  • The history of PAH can be traced back to the aminorex (diet pill) epidemic in Europe causing primary pulmonary hypertension (PPH, the prior term for what we now call idiopathic pulmonary arterial hypertension) back in the 1960s and 70s. (
  • A pulmonary ventilation and perfusion scan may be a lower-risk alternative to pulmonary angiography for evaluating disorders of the lung blood supply. (
  • If defects are present, pulmonary angiography or spiral CT should be performed. (
  • To rule out a pulmonary embolus, should you perform a ventilation-perfusion scan or computed tomography (CT) angiography? (
  • Pulmonary angiography - X-rays are used to show blood flow through the lungs. (
  • International journal of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease 2020 6 15 1049-1059. (
  • The impact of intraoperative ventilation on postoperative pulmonary complications is not defined. (
  • While the exact pathophysiology of these interesting and recent pulmonary complications is unknown, the recent increase in exposure to SC via water pipe systems and vaping suggests that there will be many more cases of patients that will require ECMO as a form of life-saving therapy. (
  • Additionally, an upsurge in utilization of noninvasive ventilation has permitted many patients to avoid the risks and complications of tracheal intubation. (
  • A pulmonary ventilation/perfusion scan involves two nuclear scan tests to measure breathing (ventilation) and circulation (perfusion) in all areas of the lungs. (
  • A pulmonary ventilation/perfusion scan is actually 2 tests. (
  • A chest x-ray is usually done before, and sometimes after a ventilation and perfusion scan. (
  • A ventilation and perfusion scan is most often done to detect an acute pulmonary embolus (blood clot in the lungs). (
  • The provider should take a ventilation and perfusion scan and then evaluate it with a chest x-ray. (
  • Other tests may be needed to confirm or rule out the findings of a pulmonary ventilation and perfusion scan. (
  • Murphy JA, Safi F. Ventilation-perfusion scan. (
  • Ventilation/Perfusion Scan or "V/Q Scan" - This test shows any areas in the lung that are not receiving the appropriate amount of blood flow due to blockage of the arteries by clots. (
  • Tidal volume transmission during non-synchronized nasal intermittent positive pressure ventilation via RAM® cannula. (
  • Success rate was found to be highest (88%) in standard therapy + noninvasive ventilation treatment modality group. (
  • In patients with nonhypercapnic acute hypoxemic respiratory failure, treatment with high-flow oxygen, standard oxygen, or noninvasive ventilation did not result in significantly different intubation rates, and there was a significant difference in favor of high- flow oxygen in 90-day mortality. (
  • This document provides European Respiratory Society/American Thoracic Society and ERS/ATS evidence-based recommendations for the use of noninvasive ventilation in acute respiratory failure based on the most current literature. (
  • Noninvasive ventilation for acute exacerbations of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. (
  • In selected patients with acute exacerbations of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, noninvasive ventilation can reduce the need for endotracheal intubation, the length of the hospital stay, and the in-hospital mortality rate. (
  • Long-Term Noninvasive Ventilation in Chronic Stable Hypercapnic Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease. (

  • Continuous positive airway pressure and noninvasive ventilation. (
  • Work of Breathing in Premature Neonates: Noninvasive Neurally-Adjusted Ventilatory Assist versus Noninvasive Ventilation. (
  • Findings from the history, physical examination, chest radiography, and electrocardiography (ECG) may suggest the presence of pulmonary hypertension and right ventricular dysfunction. (
  • Right-sided cardiac catheterization is recommended as the confirmatory test for pulmonary hypertension. (
  • Further studies should then be performed to assess for the etiology of the pulmonary hypertension, as the etiology determines treatment options and prognosis. (
  • PAH is a diagnosis of exclusion, and so it is imperative that the practitioner first assess for WHO groups 2-5 pulmonary hypertension. (
  • This is crucial in all patients suspected of having PAH, as chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension (CTEPH) is often curable by surgical endarterectomy. (
  • Chest radiograph of patient with nonidiopathic pulmonary hypertension shows enlarged pulmonary arteries. (
  • IPAH is also termed WHO Group I pulmonary hypertension (PH), precapillary pulmonary hypertension, and, previously, primary pulmonary hypertension. (
  • Chest radiography: A chest radiograph may help identify secondary causes of, or contributors to, pulmonary hypertension. (
  • Equally important, the echocardiogram helps to exclude secondary causes of, or contributors to, pulmonary hypertension, such as left-sided heart disease (eg, left ventricular dysfunction, valvular heart disease). (
