Twelfth rib resection as an approach for portal vein cannulation in sheep. (1/3997)

A surgical technique involving resection of the twelfth rib was used to insert silastic cannulas into the portal veins of three sheep to study amino acid metabolism. Good exposure to the vein was achieved by this method although it required positive ventilation due to the penetration of the thoracic cavity. All cannulas were buried subcutaneously and exteriorized near the dorsal midline. This facilitated continuous infusion into the portal cannula without disturbing cannula placement.  (+info)

The impact of a multidisciplinary approach on caring for ventilator-dependent patients. (2/3997)

OBJECTIVE: To determine the clinical and financial outcomes of a highly structured multidisciplinary care model for patients in an intensive care unit (ICU) who require prolonged mechanical ventilation. The structured model outcomes (protocol group) are compared with the preprotocol outcomes. DESIGN: Descriptive study with financial analysis. SETTING: A twelve-bed medical-surgical ICU in a non-teaching tertiary referral center in Ogden, Utah. STUDY PARTICIPANTS: During a 54 month period, 469 consecutive intensive care patients requiring mechanical ventilation for longer than 72 hours who did not meet exclusion criteria were studied. INTERVENTIONS: A multidisciplinary team was formed to coordinate the care of ventilator-dependent patients. Care was integrated by daily collaborative bedside rounds, monthly meetings, and implementation of numerous guidelines and protocols. Patients were followed from the time of ICU admission until the day of hospital discharge. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Patients were assigned APACHE II scores on admission to the ICU, and were divided into eight diagnostic categories. ICU length of stay, hospital length of stay, costs, charges, reimbursement, and in-hospital mortality were measured. RESULTS: Mortality in the preprotocol and protocol group, after adjustment for APACHE II scores, remained statistically unchanged (21-23%). After we implemented the new care model, we demonstrated significant decreases in the mean survivor's ICU length of stay (19.8 days to 14.7 days, P= 0.001), hospital length of stay (34.6 days to 25.9 days, P=0.001), charges (US$102500 to US$78500, P=0.001), and costs (US$71900 to US$58000, P=0.001). CONCLUSIONS: Implementation of a structured multidisciplinary care model to care for a heterogeneous population of ventilator-dependent ICU patients was associated with significant reductions in ICU and hospital lengths of stay, charges, and costs. Mortality rates were unaffected.  (+info)

Trigeminal and carotid body inputs controlling vascular resistance in muscle during post-contraction hyperaemia in cats. (3/3997)

1. In anaesthetized cats, the effects of stimulation of the receptors in the nasal mucosa and carotid body chemoreceptors on vascular resistance in hindlimb skeletal muscle were studied to see whether the responses were the same in active as in resting muscle. The measurements of vascular resistance were taken, first, in resting muscle, and second, in the immediate post-contraction hyperaemic phase that followed a 30 s period of isometric contractions. 2. Stimulation of the receptors in the nasal mucosa caused reflex apnoea and vasoconstriction in muscle. The latter response was attenuated when the test was repeated during post-contraction hyperaemia. 3. Stimulations of the carotid bodies were made during a period of apnoea evoked reflexly by electrical stimulation of both superior laryngeal nerves. This apnoea prevented any effects of changes in respiration on the carotid body reflex vascular responses. Stimulation of the carotid bodies evoked hindlimb muscle vasoconstriction. In the post-contraction hyperaemic period, the response was reduced or abolished. A similar attenuation of the reflex vasoconstrictor responses occurred in decentralized muscles stimulated through their motor roots in the cauda equina. 4. Evidence is presented that the attenuation of the vasoconstrictor responses evoked by the two reflexes is a phenomenon localized to the contracting muscles themselves resulting from an interaction between sympathetic neuronal activity and the local production of metabolites. 5. The results are discussed in relation to the metabolic needs of tissues in relation to asphyxial defence mechanisms such as occur in the diving response.  (+info)

Renal and hemodynamic effects of losartan in conscious dogs during controlled mechanical ventilation. (4/3997)

In 12 conscious dogs, we investigated whether the angiotensin II-receptor antagonist losartan increases renal sodium excretion and urine volume during controlled mechanical ventilation (CMV) with positive end-expiratory pressure. In four experimental protocols, the dogs were extracellular volume (ECV) expanded (electrolyte solution, 0.5 ml. kg-1. min-1 iv) or not and received losartan (100 micrograms. kg-1. min-1 iv) or not. They breathed spontaneously during the 1st and 4th hour and received CMV with positive end-expiratory pressure (mean airway pressure 20 cmH2O) during the 2nd and 3rd hours. In the expansion group, dogs with losartan excreted approximately 18% more sodium (69 +/- 7 vs. 38 +/- 5 micromol. min-1. kg-1) and 15% more urine during the 2 h of CMV because of a higher glomerular filtration rate (5.3 +/- 0.3 vs. 4.5 +/- 0.2 ml. min-1. kg-1) and the tubular effects of losartan. In the group without expansion, sodium excretion (2.0 +/- 0.6 vs. 2.6 +/- 1.0 micromol. min-1. kg-1) and glomerular filtration rate (3.8 +/- 0.3 vs. 3.8 +/- 0.4 ml. min-1. kg-1) did not change, and urine volume decreased similarly in both groups during CMV. Plasma vasopressin and aldosterone increased in both groups, and plasma renin activity increased from 4.9 +/- 0.7 to 7.8 +/- 1.3 ng ANG I. ml-1. h-1 during CMV in nonexpanded dogs without losartan. Mean arterial pressure decreased by 10 mmHg in nonexpanded dogs with losartan. In conclusion, losartan increases sodium excretion and urine volume during CMV if the ECV is expanded. If the ECV is not expanded, a decrease in mean arterial blood pressure and/or an increase in aldosterone and vasopressin during CMV attenuates the renal effects of losartan.  (+info)

Outcome for cancer patients requiring mechanical ventilation. (5/3997)

PURPOSE: To describe hospital survival for cancer patients who require mechanical ventilation. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A prospective, multicenter observational study was performed at five academic tertiary care hospitals. Demographic and clinical variables were obtained on consecutive cancer patients at initiation of mechanical ventilation, and information on vital status at hospital discharge was acquired. RESULTS: Our analysis was based on 782 adult cancer patients who met predetermined inclusion criteria. The overall observed hospital mortality was 76%, with no statistically significant differences among the five study centers. Seven variables (intubation after 24 hours, leukemia, progression or recurrence of cancer, allogeneic bone marrow transplantation, cardiac arrhythmias, presence of disseminated intravascular coagulation, and need for vasopressor therapy) were associated with an increased risk of death, whereas prior surgery with curative intent was protective. The predictive model based on these variables had an area under the receiver operating characteristic curve of 0.736, with Hosmer-Lemeshow goodness-of-fit statistics of 7.19; P = .52. CONCLUSION: This model can be used to estimate the probability of hospital survival for classes of adult cancer patients who require mechanical ventilation and can help to guide physicians, patients, and families in deciding goals and direction of treatment. Prospective independent validation in different medical settings is warranted.  (+info)

Continuous arterial P(O2) and P(CO2) measurements in swine during nitrous oxide and xenon elimination: prevention of diffusion hypoxia. (6/3997)

BACKGROUND: During nitrous oxide (N2O) elimination, arterial oxygen tension (PaO2) decreases because of the phenomenon commonly called diffusive hypoxia. The authors questioned whether similar effects occur during xenon elimination. METHODS: Nineteen anesthetized and paralyzed pigs were mechanically ventilated randomly for 30 min using inspiratory gas mixtures of 30% oxygen and either 70% N2O or xenon. The inspiratory gas was replaced by a mixture of 70% nitrogen and 30% oxygen. PaO2 and carbon dioxide tensions were recorded continuously using an indwelling arterial sensor. RESULTS: The PaO2 decreased from 119+/-10 mm Hg to 102+/-12 mm Hg (mean+/-SD) during N2O washout (P<0.01) and from 116+/-9 mm Hg to 110+/-8 mm Hg during xenon elimination (P<0.01), with a significant difference (P<0.01) between baseline and minimum PaO2 values (deltaPaO2, 17+/-6 mm Hg during N2O washout and 6+/-3 mm Hg during xenon washout). The PaCO2 value also decreased (from 39.3+/-6.3 mm Hg to 37.6+/-5.8 mm Hg) during N2O washout (P<0.01) and during xenon elimination (from 35.4+/-1.6 mm Hg to 34.9+/-1.6 mm Hg; P< 0.01). The deltaPaCO2 was 1.7+/-0.9 mm Hg in the N2O group and 0.5+/-0.3 mm Hg in the xenon group (P<0.01). CONCLUSION: Diffusive hypoxia is unlikely to occur during recovery from xenon anesthesia, probably because of the low blood solubility of this gas.  (+info)

Early inhaled glucocorticoid therapy to prevent bronchopulmonary dysplasia. (7/3997)

BACKGROUND: The safety and efficacy of inhaled glucocorticoid therapy for asthma stimulated its use in infants to prevent bronchopulmonary dysplasia. We tested the hypothesis that early therapy with inhaled glucocorticoids would decrease the frequency of bronchopulmonary dysplasia in premature infants. METHODS: We conducted a randomized, multicenter trial of inhaled beclomethasone or placebo in 253 infants, 3 to 14 days old, born before 33 weeks of gestation and weighing 1250 g or less at birth, who required ventilation therapy. Beclomethasone was delivered in a decreasing dosage, from 40 to 5 microg per kilogram of body weight per day, for four weeks. The primary outcome measure was bronchopulmonary dysplasia at 28 days of age. Secondary outcomes included bronchopulmonary dysplasia at 36 weeks of postmenstrual age, the need for systemic glucocorticoid therapy, the need for bronchodilator therapy, the duration of respiratory support, and death. RESULTS: One hundred twenty-three infants received beclomethasone, and 130 received placebo. The frequency of bronchopulmonary dysplasia was similar in the two groups: 43 percent in the beclomethasone group and 45 percent in the placebo group at 28 days of age, and 18 percent in the beclomethasone group and 20 percent in the placebo group at 36 weeks of postmenstrual age. At 28 days of age, fewer infants in the beclomethasone group than in the placebo group were receiving systemic glucocorticoid therapy (relative risk, 0.6; 95 percent confidence interval, 0.4 to 1.0) and mechanical ventilation (relative risk, 0.8; 95 percent confidence interval, 0.6 to 1.0). CONCLUSIONS: Early beclomethasone therapy did not prevent bronchopulmonary dysplasia but was associated with lower rates of use of systemic glucocorticoid therapy and mechanical ventilation.  (+info)

BACKGROUND: During synchronised mechanical ventilation, positive airway pressure and spontaneous inspiration coincide. If synchronous ventilation is provoked, adequate gas exchange should be achieved at lower peak airway pressures, potentially reducing baro/volutrauma, air leak and bronchopulmonary dysplasia. Synchronous ventilation can potentially be achieved by manipulation of rate and inspiratory time during conventional ventilation and employment of patient-triggered ventilation. OBJECTIVES: To compare the efficacy of:(i) synchronised mechanical ventilation, delivered as high-frequency positive pressure ventilation (HFPPV) or patient-triggered ventilation (assist control ventilation (ACV) and synchronous intermittent mandatory ventilation (SIMV)), with conventional ventilation or high-frequency oscillation (HFO);(ii) different types of triggered ventilation (ACV, SIMV, pressure-regulated volume control ventilation (PRVCV), SIMV with pressure support (PS) and pressure support ventilation (PSV ...

As a prize winning detective novel, Artificial Respiration reaches through many levels of mystery to explore the forces that have been at play in Argentina throughout its violent history. The narrator, a writer named Renzi, begins to look for an uncle who has vanished, a man he knows only through a web of contradictory family stories and an exchange of letters. Through these letters he learns about his uncles research into the life of Enrique Ossario, secretary to the 19th-century Argentine dictator Rosas and spy for the dictators enemy. As Renzis search leads further into his uncles work and to conversations with his literary and chess-playing friends, the reader is led by Piglia to consider the nature of Argentine identity, its literature and history, and its relation, for example, to Europe, exile, and democracy. Finally, and made most vividly appreciable by the retelling of a story in which Kafka meets Hitler, it is the encounter between literature and history that is explored ...

BACKGROUND: Volume-controlled ventilation modes have been shown to reduce duration of mechanical ventilation, incidence of chronic lung disease, failure of primary mode of ventilation, hypocarbia, severe intraventricular hemorrhage, pneumothorax, and periventricular leukomalacia in preterm infants when compared with pressure limited ventilation modes. Volume-guarantee (VG) ventilation is the most commonly used mode for volume-controlled ventilation. Assist control, pressure-support ventilation (PSV), and synchronized intermittent mandatory ventilation (SIMV) can be combined with VG; however, there is a lack of knowledge on the superiority of each regarding clinical outcomes. Therefore, we investigated the effects of SIMV +VG and PSV+ VG on ventilatory parameters, pulmonary inflammation, morbidity, and mortality in preterm infants. METHODS: Preterm infants who were born in our hospital between 24-32 weeks gestation and needed mechanical ventilation for respiratory distress syndrome were ...
Home Mechanical Ventilation in Europe started as tracheostomy ventilation in the late 1970s1; it remained under-utilized and restricted to specialized centres in France.. Due to the transition to non-invasive ventilator support, patients under Home Mechanical Ventilation (HMV) have grown worldwide.2. Indeed, HMV became widespread in Europe and a survey (Eurovent) presenting data from 2001 to 2002 in 16 European countries (including a total of 483 centres), showed a global prevalence of 6.6 per 100,000 with a wide variation between countries.3. In 2010, the European COPD audit (surveying 13 countries), showed that although a majority of centres offered invasive and noninvasive ventilation, 40.5% of centres declared not to have the capacity to ventilate at home all eligible patients.4. In fact, organization varies widely in Europe, in countries like Denmark, where patients are referred to only 2 respiratory care units (RCU)5 or Sweden where there are a wide number of outpatient clinics that take ...
This study is looking at whether there is a difference in outcomes using two different types of breathing support in those patients who have chronic respiratory failure (patients who under-breathe).. There is little data to demonstrate which mode of ventilation is better in terms of physiological outcomes and outcome data relating to patient symptoms.. We hypothesize that one type of breathing support: pressure support ventilation would be more comfortable for patients as it more closely matches a patients own respiratory pattern and and so leads to improved adherence and consequent improvement in quality of life.. Patients with respiratory failure will be randomly assigned to receive either pressure support ventilation or pressure control ventilation for the first 6 weeks and then cross-over to receive the mode not previously used for a further 6 weeks. They will have baseline data recorded and then be followed up after each 6 week block. ...
Mechanical ventilation can induce a cytokine response that may be attenuated by a strategy to minimize overdistention and recruitment/derecruitment of the lung. Whether these physiological improvements are associated with improvements in clinical end points should be determined in future studies.

The two chief volume pre-set modes of mechanical ventilation are assist-control and synchronized intermittent mandatory ventilation (SIMV). In volume assist-control ventilation, the spontaneously breathing patient will trigger a ventilator-delivered pre-set tidal volume. The limit of the breath is set by the clinician; nevertheless, the presence of a demand valve permits the tidal volume to exceed the limit if so demanded by the patient. Inspiration ceases, as does the breath cycle, once the tidal volume limit has been exceeded.. The airway pressure is dependent on the patients mechanics (e.g. compliance). As a volume pre-set mode of ventilation, it is a flow-invariable mode in that the flow can not exceed the set flow rate. The inspiratory time is a by-product of the set flow rate, respiratory rate and tidal volume.. SIMV is a dual mode of ventilation capable of providing graded levels of support. Similar to assist-control, SIMV delivers a pre-set tidal volume when the ventilator detects the ...
2017 The Association of Anaesthetists of Great Britain and Ireland Cuffed tracheal tubes are increasingly used in paediatric anaesthetic practice. This study compared tidal volume and leakage around cuffed and uncuffed tracheal tubes in children who required standardised mechanical ventilation of their lungs in the operating theatre. Children (0-16 years) undergoing elective surgery requiring tracheal intubation were randomly assigned to receive either a cuffed or an uncuffed tracheal tube. Assessments were made at five different time-points: during volume-controlled ventilation 6 -1 , PEEP 5 cmH 2 O and during pressure-controlled ventilation 10 cmH 2 O/ PEEP 5 cmH 2 O. The pressure-controlled ventilation measurement time-points were: just before a standardised recruitment manoeuvre; just after recruitment manoeuvre; 10 min; and 30 min after the recruitment manoeuvre. Problems and complications were recorded. During volume-controlled ventilation, leakage was significantly less with cuffed ...
STUDY OBJECTIVE: To investigate patient-ventilator trigger asynchrony (TA), its prevalence, physiologic basis, and clinical implications in patients requiring prolonged mechanical ventilation (PMV).. STUDY DESIGN: Descriptive and prospective cohort study.. SETTING: Barlow Respiratory Hospital (BRH), a regional weaning center.. PATIENTS: Two hundred consecutive ventilator-dependent patients, transferred to BRH over an 18-month period for attempted weaning from PMV.. METHODS AND INTERVENTIONS: Patients were assessed clinically for TA within the first week of hospital admission, or once they were in hemodynamically stable condition, by observation of uncoupling of accessory respiratory muscle efforts and onset of machine breaths. Patients were excluded if they had weaned by the time of assessment or if they never achieved hemodynamic stability. Ventilator mode was patient triggered, flow control, volume cycled, with a tidal volume of 7 to 10 mL/kg. Esophageal pressure (Peso), airway-opening ...
When caring for ventilator-dependent patients, reliable oxygenation and ventilation monitoring are vital to providing high-quality care and improving patient safety in post-acute care settings. Many long-term acute care facilities are faced with low clinician-to-patient ratios and alarm fatigue, while needing to administer many different active therapies, wean patients off ventilation, and chart patient data. In sub-acute care facilities, where workflows may not be as strained, ventilator-dependent patients still require continuous monitoring to recognize changes in status. Masimos industry-leading SET® pulse oximetry, integrated capnography, and supplemental remote monitoring solutions help clinicians continuously monitor ventilated patients and improve workflows.
INTRODUCTION Few pediatric data exists on the ventilation mode and parameters that would provide the greatest benefit with the least risk to an individual pediatric patient with Acute Lung Injury (ALI). Current expert opinion is that it is reasonable to follow adult recommendations and to adapt clinical management in children according to adult data. In the absence of consensus and established guidelines for mechanical ventilation in children with ALI, we believe that the daily clinical practice in pediatric intensive care units is subject to great variations according to the experience, comfort and knowledge of the attending intensivist.. METHODS Objective: Describe invasive and non-invasive mechanical ventilation in pediatric cases of ALI.. Hypothesis: There is an important variability in the observed practice pattern of mechanical ventilation in pediatric cases of ALI.. Design: An international cross-sectional epidemiologic study in Pediatric Intensive Care Units on the observed practice ...
Ventilator-dependent patients with acute exacerbations of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and acute severe asthma routinely receive bronchodilators to relieve bronchoconstriction. By reducing airway resistance, bronchodilators reduce the pressure required to ventilate the lung. This reduction in pressure may protect the lung against injury and enhance patient comfort. A general population of ventilated patients in a medical intensive care unit (ICU)2,3 and patients with acute respiratory distress syndrome4,5 showed improvement in expiratory airflow and airway resistance after bronchodilators. Infants with bronchopulmonary dysplasia, and children with asthma, or bronchiolitis also receive bronchodilators on a routine basis.6-10 In ventilated patients with COPD, elevated airway resistance and intrinsic positive end-expiratory pressure are major causes for weaning failure.11 In these patients, bronchodilators may facilitate weaning.12 Therapy with bronchodilators is, therefore, ...
Vascular barrier dysfunction and acute lung inflammation are fundamental features that contribute to the significant mortality associated with VILI and ARDS. Despite advances in protective LTV ventilation strategies, effective pharmacotherapy for this devastating syndrome is lacking. Using an aseptic in vivo model of VILI, we show here for the first time that a single intravenous dose of OxPAPC significantly attenuates the early vascular barrier disruption and acute inflammation induced by mechanical ventilation at HTV. Intravenous OxPAPC significantly reduced alveolar and tissue inflammatory cell recruitment and protein accumulation in the BAL after 2 hours of mechanical ventilation at HTV.. In our previous study, we described similar protective effects of OxPAPC in an animal model of LPS-induced lung injury [20]. In that model, OxPAPC prevented neutrophil influx and barrier disruption likely in part via direct competitive inhibition of Toll-like receptor (TLR) binding [13, 19, 20]. However, ...
Artificial ventilation, also called artificial respiration is any means of assisting or stimulating respiration, a metabolic process referring to the overall exchange of gases in the body by pulmonary ventilation, external respiration, and internal respiration. It may take the form of manually providing air for a person who is not breathing or is not making sufficient respiratory effort on their own, or it may be mechanical ventilation involving the use of a mechanical ventilator to move air in and out of the lungs when an individual is unable to breathe on their own, for example during surgery with general anesthesia or when an individual is in a coma. Pulmonary anton ventilation (and hence external parts of respiration) is achieved through manual insufflation of the lungs either by the rescuer blowing into the patients lungs (mouth-to-mouth resuscitation), or by using a mechanical device to do so. This method of insufflation has been proved more effective than methods which involve mechanical ...
The debate on whether HFOV or conventional mechanical ventilation is the best ventilation strategy to support premature infants with RDS has gone on for more than 20 years.6 A Cochrane review that evaluated 17 studies that included 3,652 infants failed to obtain conclusive evidence as to which type of mechanical ventilation is more effective, and no Chinese population study was included in that review.19 The conflicting reports about HFOV versus conventional mechanical ventilation are probably due to heterogeneity in study design, subject characteristics, and outcome definition. Furthermore, the long-term neurodevelopmental outcomes of employing different kinds of ventilation initially for preterm infants with severe RDS are still uncertain.11,12,20. Our prospective and randomized investigation of initial use of HFOV versus SIMV-PSV in preterm Chinese infants with severe RDS found that the infants receiving HFOV had a significantly reduced incidence of death or BPD, shorter mechanical ...

Evidence-based recommendations on intramuscular diaphragm stimulation for ventilator-dependent chronic respiratory failure in people with motor neurone disease
(1) Background: We examine trends (2001–2015) in the use of non-invasive ventilation (NIV) and invasive mechanical ventilation (IMV) among patients hospitalized for acute exacerbation of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (AE-COPD). (2) Methods: Observational retrospective epidemiological study, using the Spanish National Hospital Discharge Database. (3) Results: We included 1,431,935 hospitalizations (aged ≥40 years) with an AE-COPD. NIV use increased significantly, from 1.82% in 2001–2003 to 8.52% in 2013–2015, while IMV utilization decreased significantly, from 1.39% in 2001–2003 to 0.67% in 2013–2015. The use of NIV + invasive mechanical ventilation (IMV) rose significantly over time (from 0.17% to 0.42%). Despite the worsening of clinical profile of patients, length of stay decreased significantly over time in all types of ventilation. Patients who received only IMV had the highest in-hospital mortality (IHM) (32.63%). IHM decreased significantly in patients with

Objective To assess current ventilation practices in newborn infants. Study design We conducted a 2-point cross-sectional study in 173 European neonatal intensive care units, including 535 infants (mean gestational age 28 weeks and birth weight 1024 g). Patient characteristics, ventilator settings, and measurements were collected bedside from endotracheally ventilated infants. Results A total of 457 (85%) patients were conventionally ventilated. Time cycled pressure-limited ventilation was used in 59% of these patients, most often combined with synchronized intermittent mandatory ventilation (51%). Newer conventional ventilation modes like volume targeted and pressure support ventilation were used in, respectively, 9% and 7% of the patients. The mean tidal volume, measured in 84% of the conventionally ventilated patients, was 5.7 +/- 2.3 ml/kg. The mean positive end-expiratory pressure was 4.5 +/- 1.1 cmH(2)O and rarely exceeded 7 cmH(2)O. Conclusions Time cycled pressure-limited ventilation is ...
Objectives. To establish whether survivors of penetrating trunk trauma recover adequately and spontaneously following critical illness. Material and methods. A prospective observational study was conducted. Intubated and ventilated males and females with penetrating trunk trauma (SV group (mechanical ventilation (MV) <5 days, N=13), LV group (MV ≥5 days, N=29)) were recruited from four intensive care units. Dynamometry, lung function tests, 6-minute walk distance (6MWD), oxygen uptake and quality of life (QOL), assessed with the short form-36 English UK version (SF-36) questionnaire, were recorded over a 6-month period following discharge. Results were compared with a healthy control group (N=40). Results. In the LV group, 6MWD was reduced in comparison wit h controls at 1 (p=0.00) and 3 months (p=0.00) after discharge. Morbidity correlated with 6MWD at 3 (p=0.03) and 6 months (p=0.02), and there was a reduction in strength at 1, 3 and 6 months relative to the SV group and controls (p=0.00 - 0.04

Review question: We reviewed available evidence on the effects of early tracheostomy (≤ 10 days after tracheal intubation) as compared with late tracheostomy (, 10 days after tracheal intubation) in terms of mortality in critically ill patients who predicted to be on long-term artificial respiration.. Background: Tracheostomy is a surgical procedure in which an external artificial opening is made in the trachea (windpipe). Long-term mechanical ventilation (whereby a machine is used to mechanically assist breathing) is the most common situation for which tracheostomy is indicated for patients in intensive care units (ICUs). Early and late tracheostomies may be undertaken.. Study characteristics: The evidence is current to August 2013. We included eight studies with a total of 1977 patients allocated to either early or late tracheostomy. Four studies received financial support from different institutions that did not participate in the study or in preparing the content of the final ...

The main findings of this study were that both spontaneous nocturnal ventilation and sleep quality progressively improved with NMV in patients with thoracic restriction, measured by withdrawing NMV for one night at six (T6) and 12 months (T12-) after initiation of NMV. However, a mild degree of hypoventilation remained apparent during the withdrawal studies, especially during REM sleep. Along with ventilation, the greatest improvement in sleep quality was achieved during the intervention itself (T12+). To the best of our knowledge this is the first study to investigate spontaneous breathing and sleep quality after long term NMV, performing repeated measurements in patients with CRF due to thoracic restriction.. The study does, however, have several limitations. Firstly, the absence of a control group is a significant limitation but, because of ethical considerations, a control group without NMV was not considered acceptable. Furthermore, such a design would require the enrolment of a large ...
Previously the risks of ICD insertion in patients on mechanical ventilation has been described [5] however we presented the above case due to frequent referral of patients on mechanical ventilation to us with harmful complications of tube thoracostomy. Prior to ICD insertion in a patient on mechanical ventilation, the PEEP must be turned off and the ventilator must be disconnected briefly during the introduction of the ICD. In ICD insertion deploying Seldinger technique the same steps need to be taken for introducing the guide wire as well as the chest tube. Any ICD breaching the lung parenchyma should be removed after insertion of another ICD in the pleural space.. We believe the BTS guidelines [1] require a new revision with the view to including the mechanical ventilation as a hazardous clinical setting in pre-drainage risk assessment section. Furthermore ICD insertion needs to be explained separately in self- and mechanical-ventilating patients along with considering the clinical settings ...
BACKGROUND: Mechanical ventilation is mandatory in patients undergoing general anaesthesia for major surgery. Tidal volumes higher than 10 mL/kg of predicted body weight have been advocated for intraoperative ventilation, but recent evidence suggests that low tidal volumes may benefit surgical patients. To date, the impact of low tidal volume compared with conventional tidal volume during surgery has only been assessed in clinical trials that also combine different levels of positive end-expiratory pressure (PEEP) in each arm. We aimed to assess the impact of low tidal volume compared with conventional tidal volume during general anaesthesia for surgery on the incidence of postoperative respiratory complications in adult patients receiving moderate levels of PEEP.. STUDY DESIGN AND METHODS: Single-centre, two-arm, randomised clinical trial. In total, 1240 adult patients older than 40 years scheduled for at least 2 hours of surgery under general anaesthesia and routinely monitored with an ...
Objective: Lung-recruited Ly6C monocytes had been shown to be involved in ventilator-induced lung injury (VILI). Our present study aimed to investigate whether the COX-2 inhibition modulates the function of lung-recruited Ly6C monocytes in a mouse model of VILI. Methods: Mice were exposed to lipopolysaccharide (LPS; 20 ng) intraperitoneally prior to injurious mechanical ventilation (Vt = 30 ml/kg, PEEP = 0 cmH2O). A subgroup of mice was treated with intravenous parecoxib (30 mg/kg), a COX-2 inhibitor, 1 hour prior to ventilation. Control mice received saline and were not ventilated. At the end of the experiment, blood gas analysis was performed and lung tissue was collected for histological assessment. Flow cytometry was employed to quantify the different populations of lung monocytes/macrophages and their function. Isolated Ly6C cells were used to measure the intracellular concentrations of reactive oxygen species (ROS) and nitric oxide (NO) by fluorescent probes, and cytokine production by ...
How does your center manage the ventilator on ECMO patients? Ventilator Management on ECMO has been a debatable topic for many years.
Results Of the 74 randomized patients (median age, 57 years; 18 [24%] women), 2 withdrew consent later and 1 was found to have been randomized incorrectly, leaving 39 patients in the dexmedetomidine group and 32 patients in the placebo group for analysis. Dexmedetomidine increased ventilator-free hours at 7 days compared with placebo (median, 144.8 hours vs 127.5 hours, respectively; median difference between groups, 17.0 hours [95% CI, 4.0 to 33.2 hours]; P = .01). Among the 21 a priori secondary outcomes, none were significantly worse with dexmedetomidine, and several showed statistically significant benefit, including reduced time to extubation (median, 21.9 hours vs 44.3 hours with placebo; median difference between groups, 19.5 hours [95% CI, 5.3 to 31.1 hours]; P less than .001) and accelerated resolution of delirium (median, 23.3 hours vs 40.0 hours; median difference between groups, 16.0 hours [95% CI, 3.0 to 28.0 hours]; P = .01). Using hierarchical Cox modeling to adjust for imbalanced ...
Home mechanical ventilation (HMV) was initiated in polio centers in the mid-50s (iron lung). Ten years ago, chronic respiratory insufficiency patients began to be treated with positive pressure ventilation via tracheostomy tube. Survival of kyphoscoliotic and myopathic patients was impressive in uncontrolled studies. Today it appears that similar results may be obtained with a new non-invasive technique, nasal mechanical ventilation. The present situation of HMV in Switzerland (number of patients and their location) and the results of this treatment are described. In addition, we report on a short series of 24 Swiss patients collected in 4 centers. We show that HMV is possible in Switzerland and that the results in survival and quality of life are excellent, provided that the indications for this technique are consistent with the recommendations in the literature.
Hemorrhagic shock causes a reduction in oxygen supply to tissues leading to increased reactive oxygen species resulting in lung injury. Often mechanical ventilation is required as supportive treatment; however, ventilation can also induce lung injury and apoptosis. The purpose of this study was to examine the effects of three modes of controlled mechanical ventilation: volume control, pressure control, and pressure regulated volume control on lung injury as measured by hydrogen peroxide and apoptosis during hemorrhagic shock. Male Sprague-Dawley rats were randomized to the three controlled mechanical ventilation groups. Hemorrhagic shock was elicited by removing approximately 40% of the blood volume over 30 minutes. The rats were treated with one of three modes of mechanical ventilation with 40% oxygen for 60 minutes. The lungs were removed and measured for hydrogen peroxide and apoptosis based on nuclear differential dye uptake. There were no significant differences in hemodynamics,
It was recently shown that acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) mortality has not been reduced in over 15 years and remains ~40 %, even with protective low tidal volume (LVt) ventilation. Thus, there is a critical need to develop novel ventilation strategies that will protect the lung and reduce ARDS mortality. Protti et al. have begun to analyze the impact of mechanical ventilation on lung tissue using engineering methods in normal pigs ventilated for 54 h. They used these methods to assess the impact of a mechanical breath on dynamic and static global lung strain and energy load. Strain is the change in lung volume in response to an applied stress (i.e., Tidal Volume-Vt). This study has yielded a number of exciting new concepts including the following: (1) Individual mechanical breath parameters (e.g., Vt or Plateau Pressure) are not directly correlated with VILI but rather any combination of parameters that subject the lung to excessive dynamic strain and energy/power load will cause VILI; (2)
TY - JOUR. T1 - Acute respiratory failure in children. AU - Friedman, Matthew L.. AU - Nitu, Mara. PY - 2018/7/1. Y1 - 2018/7/1. N2 - This article reviews the definition, pathophysiology, etiology, assessment, and management of acute respiratory failure in children. Acute respiratory failure is the inability of the respiratory system to maintain oxygenation or eliminate carbon dioxide. Acute respiratory failure is a common cause for admission to a pediatric intensive care unit. Most causes of acute respiratory failure can be grouped into one of three categories: lung parenchymal disease, airway obstruction, or neuromuscular dysfunction. Many patients with acute respiratory failure are managed successfully with noninvasive respiratory support; however, in severe cases, patients may require intubation and mechanical ventilation..

BACKGROUND: Dyspnea, or difficult breathing, is common in patients receiving mechanical ventilation; however, dyspnea is not routinely or systematically measured. OBJECTIVE: The primary purpose of this methodological study was to evaluate the test-retest reliability of 5 dyspnea rating scales and the criterion validity of 4 dyspnea rating scales in patients receiving mechanical ventilation. The secondary purpose was to examine the correlations between each of these 5 rating scales and physiological measures of respiratory function. METHODS: The convenience sample consisted of 28 patients on mechanical ventilation during their hospitalization in the intensive care units of a large, inner-city hospital. Patients rated their dyspnea twice at 30-minute intervals on the visual analogue scale, the vertical analogue dyspnea scale, the modified Borg scale, the numerical scale, and the faces scale. Test-retest reliability was computed by using the intraclass correlation coefficient. Criterion validity ...
Mechanical ventilation is a common but technically challenging therapy that requires extensive education and experience to develop proficiency. This interactive computer module was developed to address a deficit in pediatric resident education. The instructional material focuses on respiratory physiology and basic concepts of conventional mechanical ventilation. In comparison to traditional didactic lectures, the computer module is brief, self-paced, and easily accessible and can be used whenever the pediatric resident has available time. These attributes are consistent with principles of adult learning and medical education.6,14. Residents preferred the interactive computer module compared to an annotated PowerPoint presentation with the same content. After using the module, they perceived an increase in self-confidence and had higher scores on a posttraining knowledge assessment. This demonstrates that self-directed learning is a feasible instructional method for learning this complex material ...
The overall goal of this thesis was to develop a dry powder delivery system for patients on mechanical ventilation. The studies were divided into two parts: the formulation development and the device design. The pulmonary system is an attractive route for drug delivery since the lungs have a large accessible surface area for treatment or drug absorption. For ventilated patients, inhaled drugs have to successfully navigate ventilator tubing and an endotracheal tube. Agglomerates of drug nanoparticles (also known as `NanoClusters) are fine dry powder aerosols that were hypothesized to enable drug delivery through ventilator circuits. This Thesis systematically investigated formulations of NanoClusters and their aerosol performance in a conventional inhaler and a device designed for use during mechanical ventilation. These engineered powders of budesonide (NC-Bud) were delivered via a Monodose® inhaler or a novel device through commercial endotracheal tubes, and analyzed by cascade impaction. ...

Pearl: Strongly consider using lung-protective ventilation strategies in patient with acute respiratory failure in the emergency department3. Most patients in the ED should be placed on assist-control (AC) mode, which is usually a volume cycled or (tidal) volume controlled mode of mechanical ventilation after intubation.. Ventilation (PaCO2) settings - Tidal volume (Vt) and respiratory rate (RR). For most patient, choose Vt 6-8 cc/kg (ideal body weight) In this patient with only one lung, target 6 cc/kg initially then reduce the TV if needed (we chose 260 cc). Consider the minute ventilation the patient required before intubation as well as the cause of respiratory failure when choosing a starting point.. Oxygenation (PaO2) settings - FiO2 and PEEP. Initially start your patient on 100% FiO2 and wean down to a goal of , 60%. In patients requiring single lung ventilation, its likely they will require higher FiO2s. PEEP is positive end expiratory pressure, which helps to keep alveoli open during ...

BACKGROUND: The effects of individualised perioperative lung-protective ventilation (based on the open-lung approach [OLA]) on postoperative complications is unknown. We aimed to investigate the effects of intraoperative and postoperative ventilatory management in patients scheduled for abdominal surgery, compared with standard protective ventilation. METHODS: We did this prospective, multicentre, randomised controlled trial in 21 teaching hospitals in Spain. We enrolled patients who were aged 18 years or older, were scheduled to have abdominal surgery with an expected time of longer than 2 h, had intermediate-to-high-risk of developing postoperative pulmonary complications, and who had a body-mass index less than 35 kg/m2. Patients were randomly assigned (1:1:1:1) online to receive one of four lung-protective ventilation strategies using low tidal volume plus positive end-expiratory pressure (PEEP): open-lung approach (OLA)-iCPAP (individualised intraoperative ventilation [individualised PEEP ...
Patients with mechanical ventilation are in risk of malnutrition, which could lead to worse outcome. According to guidelines released from authority organizations, enteral nutrition (EN) should be prior approach for critically ill patients. However, initiation and delivery of EN during the early period of ICU admission are frequently hampered, which results in underfeeding. The investigators speculate whether an intensive enteral nutrition strategy could reinforce the delivery of EN thereby improving outcomes. In this multi-center, prospective, randomized parallel clinical trial, the investigators aim to assess the feasibility, safety and outcomes of intensive enteral nutrition in mechanical-ventilated patients.
In order to study the interactions between critically ill patients receiving invasive mechanical ventilation and the machine, CIBER Researchers from the Critical Care Unit of Parc Tauli in collaboration with researchers from the Althaia Foundation, IRBLleida and BetterCare developed a new…

ALI is one of the leading causes of morbidity and mortality of critical illness with extremely limited therapeutic options. In the present study, we pursued the hypothesis that tissue-specific adenosine signaling events through the A2B adenosine receptor contribute to lung protection and can thus be targeted for ALI treatment. To make progress on this front, we performed a head-to-head comparison of mice with genetic deletion of Adora2b in the myeloid lineage, vascular endothelial cells, or alveolar epithelial cells. Interestingly, we only observed a phenotype in mice with tissue-specific Adora2b deletion in alveolar epithelial cells, closely resembling the observed detrimental effects of global Adora2b deletion during ALI. Interestingly, the injurious effects of our two-hit model where an inflammatory event (i.t. LPS treatment) is followed by injurious mechanical ventilation seem to be supra-additive compared with the effects of injurious ventilation or LPS i.t. alone. Based on these findings ...

Although mechanical ventilation may be a patients vital ally during acute illness, it can quickly transform into an enemy during chronic conditions.. The weaning process is the fundamental phase that enables the resumption of physiological respiratory function; however, it is also associated with a number of life-threatening complications, and a large percentage of critically ill patients never achieve airway device removal or require the resumption of mechanical ventilation just a few days post-weaning.. Indeed, the weaning process is, at present, more of an art than a science.. As such, there is urgent need for novel contributions from the scientific literature to abate the growing rates of morbidity and mortality associated with weaning failure.. The physician attempting to wean a patient must integrate clinical parameters and common-sense criteria. Numerous studies have striven to identify single predictive factors of weaning failure and sought to standardize the weaning process, but the ...

Objective The economic implications of sedative choice in the management of patients receiving mechanical ventilation are unclear due to differences in costs and clinical outcomes connected with specific sedatives. variations between midazolam and propofol on costs or actions of performance. Conclusion Propofol offers superior value in comparison to lorazepam when useful for sedation among the critically sick who require mechanised ventilation when found in the establishing of daily sedative interruption. research where individuals had been 55 years managed and older inside a medical intensive treatment device. We also assumed individuals would receive testing daily for the appropriateness of spontaneous deep breathing trials in expectation of ventilator liberation which daily awakening tests were performed where sedatives were ceased every day until individuals could follow basic instructions. Sedative and analgesic dosing Estimations of sedative and analgesic dosing had been based on unique ...
Ventilation-induced diaphragm dysfunction (VIDD) is a marked decline in diaphragm function in response to mechanical ventilation, which has negative consequences for individual patients quality of life and for the health care system, but specific treatment strategies are still lacking. We used an experimental intensive care unit (ICU) model, allowing time-resolved studies of diaphragm structure and function in response to long-term mechanical ventilation and the effects of a pharmacological intervention (the chaperone co-inducer BGP-15). The marked loss of diaphragm muscle fiber function in response to mechanical ventilation was caused by posttranslational modifications (PTMs) of myosin. In a rat model, 10 days of BGP-15 treatment greatly improved diaphragm muscle fiber function (by about 100%), although it did not reverse diaphragm atrophy. The treatment also provided protection from myosin PTMs associated with HSP72 induction and PARP-1 inhibition, resulting in improvement of mitochondrial ...

  • Artificial ventilation (also called artificial respiration) is a means of assisting or stimulating respiration, a metabolic process referring to the overall exchange of gases in the body by pulmonary ventilation, external respiration, and internal respiration. (
  • Pulmonary ventilation (and hence external parts of respiration) is achieved through manual insufflation of the lungs either by the rescuer blowing into the patient's lungs (mouth-to-mouth resuscitation), or by using a mechanical device to do so. (
  • The Greek physician Galen may have been the first to describe artificial ventilation: "If you take a dead animal and blow air through its larynx through a reed, you will fill its bronchi and watch its lungs attain the greatest distention. (

  • Mouth-to-mouth resuscitation, a form of artificial ventilation, is the act of assisting or stimulating respiration in which a rescuer presses their mouth against that of the victim and blows air into the person's lungs. (
  • Resuscitation by inducing artificial respiration consists chiefly of two actions: (1) establishing and maintaining an open air passage from the upper respiratory tract ( mouth , throat, and pharynx ) to the lungs and (2) exchanging air and carbon dioxide in the terminal air sacs of the lungs while the heart is still functioning. (
  • Artificial respiration (AR) and cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) are emergency procedures that hopefully you will never need to use. (
  • Accidents do happen, in spite of our best efforts, and some can be severe enough to require cardiopulmonary resuscitation or artificial respiration. (
  • Let's find out in this article, under what kind of poisoning may occur clinical death, what kind of human resuscitation techniques exist, and how to properly perform artificial respiration and indirect heart massage. (
  • The simplest method and the most efficient method of artificial respiration is mouth to mouth breathing (kiss of life) or cardiopulmonary resuscitation. (
  • It is used on a patient with a beating heart or as part of cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) to achieve the internal respiration. (
  • When victims vomit, they must be turned on their side and the airway cleaned before continuing artificial respiration. (
  • If a victim was choking before falling unconscious, the Heimlich maneuver may be used to clear the airway before beginning mouth-to-mouth respiration. (
  • A respiratory circuit for an artificial inspiration ventilator is characterized in that it controls a volume of an O2/ air constant flow as being substantially reversely proportional to a positive and negative airway pressures by patient's own respiration . (

  • Various methods of artificial respiration, most based on the application of external force to the lungs, were once used. (
  • What are the methods of artificial respiration? (
  • The mitochondria in our cells consume 90% of the oxygen we breathe and use that oxygen to convert nutrients into energy for a variety of cellular functions through a chemical process known as respiration. (
  • For decades, scientists studying mitochondrial respiration have had to isolate mitochondria within 30 minutes of collection from fresh tissue and run respirometry tests on them the same day, making side-by-side comparisons impractical and prone to errors. (
  • Respiration rates of muscle mitochondria in flying hummingbirds range from 7 to 10 ml of O2 per cm3 of mitochondria per min, which is about 2 times higher than the range obtained in the locomotory muscles of mammals running at their maximum aerobic capacities (VO2max). (
  • Medical nanorobots can be employed as artificial oxygen carriers in the blood (see Respirocytes ), thus assisting and extending normal human respiratory capacities. (
  • An endotracheal tube will be placed and oxygen used for artificial respiration. (
  • In cellular respiration the blood cells release oxygen and pick up carbon dioxide. (
  • Artificial respiration can save lives because if breathing stops, the organs are no longer supplied with oxygen. (
  • Cellular respiration in which oxygen is used in the production of energy. (
  • Respiration in which an organism, such as a one-celled ameba, secures its oxygen and gives up carbon dioxide directly to the surrounding medium. (
  • The heart pumps oxygenated blood to the organs, so if you're giving artificial respiration but there's no heartbeat, the oxygen can't get where it's needed and you'll need to provide chest compressions as well as artificial respiration. (
  • This can be aerobic respiration, which needs oxygen, or anaerobic respiration, which does not. (
  • Aerobic respiration is the form of respiration which uses oxygen. (
  • As a result, more than half of patients with mitochondrial disorders are never tested for mitochondrial respiration. (
  • The new technique restores essential electron-transfer components that leak out of the mitochondrial membrane when it is damaged during freezing and thawing, thus returning mitochondrial respiration to the level of fresh samples. (
  • 2020) A novel approach to measure mitochondrial respiration in frozen biological samples. (
  • We propose that both mitochondrial volume densities and Sv(im,m) are near their maximum theoretical limits in hummingbirds and that higher rates of mitochondrial respiration than those observed in mammals are achieved in vivo as a result of higher capacities for O2 delivery and substrate catabolism.

  • If your cat isn't breathing but has a heartbeat then you will need to do artificial respiration on him. (
  • Respiration in which inspiratory or expiratory sounds are not continuous. (
  • CPAP treatment can be in a number of forms, including (i) the maintenance of a constant treatment pressure level, (ii) alternating between two constant levels in synchronism with the inspiratory and expiratory phases of respiration ("bi-level CPAP"), and (iii) having an autosetting level in accordance with a patient's therapeutic needs. (
  • Artificial respiration can be done by pressing on the person's chest, by blowing into the person's mouth, or by using a special machine. (
  • This combines both artificial respiration with heart compressions. (
  • An Artificial Respiration Procedure Sign is a useful device to help protect the health and safety of others in pool and swimming areas, but is not an alternative for required protective measures for eliminating or abating hazards. (
  • 10 days after tracheal intubation ) in terms of mortality in critically ill patients who predicted to be on long-term artificial respiration. (
  • In emergency situations, however, when no professional help is available, rescuers undertake the mouth-to-mouth or mouth-to-nose method of artificial respiration. (
  • Mouth-to-mouth breathing soon after became the most widely used method of artificial respiration. (
  • The chief principle of Dr Marshall Halls so-called ready method is the postural performance of artificial respiration. (
  • Artificial respiration by the H. N. method. (
  • Artificial respiration by the HN method. (
  • An instructional film describing the Holger Nielsen [HN] method of artificial respiration, using a combination of pressure on the back, and movements of the arm. (
  • Stock footage of An educational film on how to properly perform the back method of artificial respiration. (
  • Here 2nd Lt Dorothy Mott of Oswego, New York, demonstrates to Pvt Cathe B. Greskowiak the method of artificial respiration. (
  • 9. A method as set forth in claim 8 , wherein said step of third processing comprises identifying a variation in said heart rate signal of said patient associated with said respiration. (
  • 13. A method as set forth in claim 1 , further comprising the step of providing an output indicative of a respiration rate of said patient. (
  • The invention thus allows for noninvasive monitoring of respiration rate and expands the functionality of pulse oximeters. (
  • 19 Claims, 1 Drawing Figure RESPIRATION RATE CONTROL SYSTEM BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION This invention relates to a respiration rate control system. (
  • if you must know, uh, they were practicing a brand new form of artificial respiration. (
  • The main long-term objective of this program is the development of a more protective artificial respiratory system to reduce the physical stress of patients undergoing artificial respiration. (
  • Within three weeks, Demcon, with the help of VDL, managed to develop, manufacture and test a complete artificial respiration system in the Netherlands that can be used for artificial respiration for corona patients in intensive care units. (
  • Respiration in which the chest cavity expands by raising the ribs. (
  • The researchers proceeded to develop techniques to overcome obstruction, such as lifting of the chin, and subsequently demonstrated that mouth-to-mouth respiration was superior to other methods in the quantity of air that could be delivered in each respiratory cycle (tidal volume). (
  • Dr. Ananya Malhotra speaks to News-Medical about her research into how pancreatic cancer prognosis could be improved by using artificial intelligence. (
  • Tracheostomy is a surgical procedure in which an external artificial opening is made in the trachea (windpipe). (
  • Diagnostic hypotheses and personalized therapies: artificial intelligence has begun to revolutionize the fight against cancer. (
  • They may have manual backup mechanisms to enable hand-driven respiration in the absence of power (such as the mechanical ventilator integrated into an anaesthetic machine ). (
  • These developments construct a framework of modeling respiratory systems and give a bright prospect of intelligent monitoring of artificial respiration. (
  • Keep careful watch on breathing and give artificial respiration again if it falters. (
  • For cold exposure, give artificial respiration. (
