Developments in total quality management in the United States: the Intermountain Health Care perspective. (1/1773)

In summary our purpose has been to evaluate quality in the following terms. Best process of care--narrowing the variation of care decisions, working towards the best method. Best clinical outcome--decreased morbidity ond mortality. Best patient satisfaction--both for clinical outcome and the process of care. Best value--best value at the lowest cost. At Intermountain Health Care we believe that the best way to achieve the best quality improvement in a health care system is to involve all of the participants--patients, providers, and systems--in employing the principles of total quality management. Patient involvement--in prevention; participating in best care process through education and utilisation; in evaluating functional status before, during, and after intervention; in satisfaction; in clinical outcome and follow up with providers. Provider involvement--in planning, implementing, analysing, and educating; in defining guidelines; in reassessing and defining guidelines; in reassessing and continually modifying the care map, always striving for "best care." System involvement--in providing structure and mechanisms, support staff, and information systems and being willing to focus on quality as a part of its mission. An American philosopher, George Santayana, once said: "What we call the contagious force of an idea is really the force of the people who have embraced it." It will be up to all of us collectively to become the force behind moving quality management principles into the forefront of patient care methodology and ensuring that quality remains as the guiding principle of health care delivery in the future.  (+info)

Fibroproliferation and mast cells in the acute respiratory distress syndrome. (2/1773)

BACKGROUND: Mast cells (MCs), which are a major source of cytokines and growth factors, have been implicated in various fibrotic disorders. To clarify the contribution of MCs to fibrogenesis, lung tissue from patients with the acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) was examined during exudative through to fibroproliferative stages. METHODS: Lung tissue was obtained from 17 patients with ARDS who had pathological features of the early exudative stage (n = 6) or the later reparative stages (n = 11), from four patients with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, and from three patients with normal lung tissue. Immunohistochemical localisation of tryptase (found in all human MCs), chymase (found in a subset of human MCs), alpha-smooth muscle actin (identifies myofibroblasts), and procollagen type I was performed. RESULTS: Normal lung tissue exhibited myofibroblast and procollagen type I immunolocalisation scores each of < 5 and MC scores of 1. Increased scores were defined as myofibroblast and procollagen type I scores of > 10 and MC scores of > or = 2. Eighty percent of lung tissue samples from the early exudative stage of ARDS exhibited increased numbers of myofibroblasts, 50% had increased numbers of procollagen type I producing cells, while only 17% had increased numbers of MCs compared with control samples. All samples from the later reparative stages of ARDS had increased numbers of myofibroblasts and procollagen type I producing cells. Increased numbers of MCs were seen in 55% of samples from the reparative stages. There was no significant shift in MC phenotype in the ARDS samples. CONCLUSIONS: Increased numbers of myofibroblasts and procollagen type I producing cells were frequently found early in the course of ARDS. MC hyperplasia was unusual during this stage, but was often a feature of the later reparative stages. MCs do not appear to initiate fibroproliferation in ARDS.  (+info)

Acute lung injury after instillation of human breast milk into rabbits' lungs: effects of pH and gastric juice. (3/1773)

BACKGROUND: The authors compared the lung injury in rabbits that occurred after tracheal instillation of human breast milk (HBM) acidified to pH 1.8 with hydrochloric acid (HCl), HBM at its native pH (7.0), and HBM acidified with gastric juice to pH 1.8 and 3.0. METHODS: The alveolar-to-arterial oxygen tension gradient and dynamic compliance were recorded before and hourly for 4 h after intratracheal instillation of 0.8 ml/kg HBM acidified with HCI (pH 1.8), HBM at its native pH (7.0), HBM acidified with gastric juice (pH 1.8 or 3.0), or 5% dextrose solution acidified with gastric juice (pH 1.8) as a control in 30 adult rabbits. The circulating neutrophil count and phagocyte oxidant activity were determined before and 1 and 4 h after instillation. RESULTS: The alveolar-to-arterial oxygen tension gradient increased and dynamic compliance decreased significantly in all groups after instillation of HBM compared with baseline values and those in the control group. The severity of the lung injury after instillation of HBM at all pH values (1.8, 3.0, and 7.0) and after acidification with gastric juice or HCl was similar. The circulating neutrophil count increased steadily for 4 h after instillation (P < 0.013), whereas spontaneous phagocyte oxidant burst activity peaked at 1 h (P < 0.007) and returned to baseline by 4 h after instillation. CONCLUSIONS: The severity of the lung injury after tracheal instillation of 0.8 ml/kg HBM in rabbits is similar at pH values between 1.8 and 7.0 after acidification with HCl or gastric juice. Tracheal instillation of HBM increases the circulating neutrophil count and phagocyte oxidant burst activity.  (+info)

Pharmacological activities of TEI-8362, a novel inhibitor of human neutrophil elastase. (4/1773)

1. TEI-8362, 4-(N-(3-((3-carboxypropyl)amino)-8-methyl-1-oxo-4-azaisochromen-6- yl)carbamoyl)-4-((phenylmethoxy)carbonylamino)butanoic acid (C26H28N4O9) is a novel inhibitor of human neutrophil elastase (HNE). We evaluated its pharmacological profile in vitro and in vivo. 2. TEI-8362 demonstrated potent inhibition of HNE with a Ki value of 1.38 x 10(-9) M. Its selectivity for HNE among a variety of proteases ranged from 163 fold to 68,000 fold in favour of HNE. 3. The pulmonary haemorrhage that occurred after i.t. instillation of HNE to hamsters was inhibited by either i.t., i.v., or inhalant administration of TEI-8362. 4. Intratracheal administration of lipopolysaccharide induced pulmonary neutrophilia. Twenty-four hours after lipopolysaccharide administration, the additional treatment with formyl-methionyl-leucyl-phenylalanine resulted in a specific neutrophil-dependent acute lung injury. In this model, lung injury was significantly attenuated by i.t., i.v., or inhalant administration of TEI-8362. 5. These pharmacological actions of TEI-8362 suggest that this drug has therapeutic value in the treatment of destructive lung diseases due to neutrophils.  (+info)

Successful non-invasive ventilatory support in a patient with regimen-related toxicity during allogeneic bone marrow transplantation. (5/1773)

A 13-year-old patient with transfusion-dependent beta thalassemia major developed acute regimen-related lung toxicity after the conditioning regimen but before allogeneic bone marrow transplantation. He was successfully managed on non-invasive ventilatory support. Advances in non-invasive ventilatory support may drastically improve the outlook of this subset of patients who otherwise have a grim prognosis.  (+info)

Surfactant treatment for acute respiratory distress syndrome. (6/1773)

OBJECTIVE: To determine prospectively the efficacy of surfactant in acute respiratory distress syndrome. STUDY DESIGN: Twenty patients, 1 month to 16 years of age, diagnosed with an acute pulmonary disease with severe hypoxaemia (PaO2/FiO2 < 100) (13 with systemic or pulmonary disease and seven with cardiac disease) were treated with one to six doses of 50-200 mg/kg of porcine surfactant administered directly into the trachea. The surfactant was considered to be effective when the PaO2/FiO2 improved by > 20%. RESULTS: After initial surfactant administration the PaO2/FiO2 increased significantly in patients with systemic or pulmonary disease from 68 to 111, and the oxygenation index (OI) diminished significantly from 36.9 to 27.1. The PaO2/FiO2 and OI did not improve in children with cardiac disease. The improvement of the patients who survived was greater than that of those who died. CONCLUSIONS: Surfactant moderately improves oxygenation in some children with severe acute respiratory distress syndrome secondary to pulmonary or systemic disease.  (+info)

Comparison of exogenous surfactant therapy, mechanical ventilation with high end-expiratory pressure and partial liquid ventilation in a model of acute lung injury. (7/1773)

We have compared three treatment strategies, that aim to prevent repetitive alveolar collapse, for their effect on gas exchange, lung mechanics, lung injury, protein transfer into the alveoli and surfactant system, in a model of acute lung injury. In adult rats, the lungs were ventilated mechanically with 100% oxygen and a PEEP of 6 cm H2O, and acute lung injury was induced by repeated lung lavage to obtain a PaO2 value < 13 kPa. Animals were then allocated randomly (n = 12 in each group) to receive exogenous surfactant therapy, ventilation with high PEEP (18 cm H2O), partial liquid ventilation or ventilation with low PEEP (8 cm H2O) (ventilated controls). Blood-gas values were measured hourly. At the end of the 4-h study, in six animals per group, pressure-volume curves were constructed and bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) was performed, whereas in the remaining animals lung injury was assessed. In the ventilated control group, arterial oxygenation did not improve and protein concentration of BAL and conversion of active to non-active surfactant components increased significantly. In the three treatment groups, PaO2 increased rapidly to > 50 kPa and remained stable over the next 4 h. The protein concentration of BAL fluid increased significantly only in the partial liquid ventilation group. Conversion of active to non-active surfactant components increased significantly in the partial liquid ventilation group and in the group ventilated with high PEEP. In the surfactant group and partial liquid ventilation groups, less lung injury was found compared with the ventilated control group and the group ventilated with high PEEP. We conclude that although all three strategies improved PaO2 to > 50 kPa, the impact on protein transfer into the alveoli, surfactant system and lung injury differed markedly.  (+info)

Calcinosis cutis and intestinal pseudoobstruction in a patient with adult onset Still's disease associated with recurrent relapses of disordered coagulopathy. (8/1773)

Adult onset Still's disease (AOSD) is a systemic inflammatory disorder of unknown origin, characterized by a typical spiking fever, evanescent salmon-colored rash, polyarthralgia, and myalgia. Calcinosis cutis and gastrointestinal involvement have rarely been noted in AOSD. We herein describe a 54-year-old woman who demonstrated repeated disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC), and adult respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), associated with AOSD. The patient also revealed a remarkable degree of digital calcinosis cutis and intestinal pseudoobstruction. A connective tissue disease, such as systemic sclerosis, might have been the underlying factor in the latter two symptoms.  (+info)

ALI/ARDS is a life-threatening condition that involves inflammation of the lungs and fluid accumulation in the air sacs, which leads to low blood oxygen levels and respiratory failure. Common causes include pneumonia, septic shock, and lung trauma. Symptoms usually develop within 24 to 48 hours of the original injury or illness, and most patients require immediate care in an intensive care unit (ICU). The main form of treatment for ALI/ARDS is the delivery of oxygen and a continuous level of pressure to the damaged lungs through mechanical ventilation. Past research has shown that lower tidal volume ventilation (LTVV), a protective ventilator management technique in which lower volumes of oxygen are administered, improves short-term clinical outcomes in individuals with ALI/ARDS. However, the long-term impact of LTVV remains unknown. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effects of LTVV on long-term outcomes in individuals with ALI/ARDS..

en] Plasmatic immunoreactive trypsin (IRT), thromboxane and trypsin-like enzymatic activity were measured in 117 patients at risk of developing adult respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) (53 multiple injury, 30 abdominal surgery, 17 acute pancreatitis, 12 burnt and 5 disseminated intravascular coagulation patients). 69 of these patients developed ARDS. Immunoreactive trypsin and thromboxane were measured by radio-immuno-assay and trypsin-like enzymatic activity by spectrophotometry, using a specific chromogenic substrate. Mean IRT value was 675 ng/ml in ARDS and 265 ng/ml in non ARDS patients (p less than 0.05). Mean IRT value was 685 ng/ml in septic and 170 ng/ml in non septic patients (p less than 0.01). An abnormal trypsin-like enzymatic activity was measured in 26 ARDS patients. In 60 patients (37 ARDS and 23 non ARDS), thromboxane appeared in plasma simultaneously or about 24 hours after the beginning of IRT release. The importance of thromboxane release parallels the intensity of IRT. ...

Adult respiratory distress syndrome and chemical pneumonitis are well documented effects of exposure to chemical fumes. Many organic and non-organic agents cause chemical pneumonitis. The course of the disease depends on the nature of the chemical agent, intensity and duration of the exposure and the interval between exposure and start of treatment. Also the site of damage tends to vary with the gas involved; gases with higher water solubility being effectively scavenged by the upper respiratory mucosa, while insoluble toxic gases have their effects on the lower respiratory mucosa..

Abstract Background Clinical observations demonstrated that COVID-19 related pneumonia is often accompanied by hematological and coagulation abnormalities including lymphopenia, thrombocytopenia, and prolonged prothrombin time. The evaluation of laboratory findings including coagulation and inflammation parameters may represent a promising approach for early determination of COVID-19 severity. Methods and Materials In the present study, we aimed to identify laboratory parameters present upon admission in patients with COVID-19 related viral pneumonia and associated with an early in-hospital development of refractory respiratory failure or severe acute respiratory distress syndrome requiring treatment in an intensive care unit. We investigated differences in the C-reactive protein (CRP) and fibrinogen levels, prothrombin time (PT) and international normalized ratio (INR) between COVID-19 patients who had been transferred to an ICU within two weeks after admission (n = 82) and COVID-19 patients with

OBJECTIVES: We tested whether the poor ability of pulse pressure variation to predict fluid responsiveness in cases of acute respiratory distress syndrome was related to low lung compliance. We also tested whether the changes in cardiac index induced by passive leg-raising and by an end-expiratory occlusion test were better than pulse pressure variation at predicting fluid responsiveness in acute respiratory distress syndrome patients.. DESIGN: Prospective study.. SETTING: Medical intensive care unit.. PATIENTS: We included 54 patients with circulatory shock (63 ± 13 yrs; Simplified Acute Physiology Score II, 63 ± 24). Twenty-seven patients had acute respiratory distress syndrome (compliance of the respiratory system, 22 ± 3 mL/cm H2O). In nonacute respiratory distress syndrome patients, the compliance of the respiratory system was 45 ± 9 mL/cm H2O.. MEASUREMENTS AND MAIN RESULTS: We measured the response of cardiac index (transpulmonary thermodilution) to fluid administration (500 mL ...

N2 - The generation of reactive oxygen species (ROS) plays an important role for the maintenance of cellular processes and functions in the body. However, the excessive generation of oxygen radicals under pathological conditions such as acute lung injury (ALI) and its most severe form acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) leads to increased endothelial permeability. Within this hallmark of ALI and ARDS, vascular microvessels lose their junctional integrity and show increased myosin contractions that promote the migration of polymorphonuclear leukocytes (PMNs) and the transition of solutes and fluids in the alveolar lumen. These processes all have a redox component, and this chapter focuses on the role played ...
Background: ARDS is defined as pulmonary inflammatory process characterized by increased capillary permeability associated with acute severe hypoxemia and bilateral infiltrates on the chest radiograph. Chlinical manifestations of ARDS is associated with a reduction of functional residual capacity and static compliance of the respiratory system.Recently,after experimental models and physiological studies have just established the principles to understand the potential beneficial effects of PEEP and reduction in mortality to 22%. The benefit of PEEP has been demonstrated in terms of preventing cyclic opening and collapsing alveoli in acute respiratory distress syndrome patients (ARDS).. Aim of study: To determine the appropriate PEEP level in-patients with ARDS.. Objective: By using optimal PEEP:to realize the maximal alveolar recruitment.To avoid the decrease of oxygen delivery (DO2) as result of an unfavourable reduction in cardiac output.. Material and methods:Retrospectiv study of 120 patients ...

A gamma-ray external counting method with Tc-99m human serum albumin revealed that pulmonary microvascular permeability was abnormally high in patients with ARDS. With this method, ARDS could be distinguished from cardiogenic pulmonary edema. Levels of interleukin-8 in bronchoalveolar fluid from patients with septic ARDS, reexpansion pulmonary edema, and inhalation burn injury were abnormally high. In 21 patients with acute lung injury, 15 of whom had ARDS, plasma concentrations of three inflammatory markers were measured: thiobarbituric acid reactive material which reflects cell membrane lipid peroxidation; 7S collagen, a component ...

The involvement of inflammatory mediators in ARDS has been the subject of intense investigation, and oxidant-mediated tissue injury is likely to be important in the pathogenesis of ARDS. In response to various inflammatory stimuli, lung endothelial cells, alveolar cells, and airway epithelial cells, as well as alveolar macrophages, produce reactive oxygen species (ROS) and reactive nitrogen species (RNS). In addition, the therapeutic administration of oxygen can enhance the production of these toxic species. As the antioxidant defense system, various enzymes and low-molecular weight ...

Acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) is a life-threatening lung condition that prevents enough oxygen from getting to the lungs and into the blood. Infants can also have respiratory distress syndrome.
Acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) is a life threatening respiratory failure due to lung injury from a variety of precipitants. Pathologically ARDS is characterised by diffuse alveolar damage, alveolar capillary leakage, and protein rich pulmonary oedema leading to the clinical manifestation of poor lung compliance, severe hypoxaemia, and bilateral infiltrates on chest radiograph. Several aetiological factors associated with the development of ARDS are identified with sepsis, pneumonia, and trauma with multiple transfusions accounting for most cases. Despite the absence of a robust diagnostic definition, extensive epidemiological investigations suggest ARDS remains a significant health burden with substantial morbidity and mortality. Improvements in outcome following ARDS over the past decade are in part due to improved strategies of mechanical ventilation and advanced support of other failing organs. Optimal treatment involves judicious fluid management, protective lung ventilation with ...
Ion channels/pumps are essential regulators of organ homeostasis and disease. In the present review we discuss the role of the mechanosensitive cation channel, transient receptor potential vanilloid 4 (TRPV4), in cytokine secretion and pulmonary inflammatory diseases such as asthma, cystic fibrosis, and acute lung injury/acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). TRPV4 has been shown to play a role in lung diseases associated with lung parenchymal stretch or stiffness. TRPV4 indirectly mediates hypotonicity-induced smooth muscle contraction and airway remodeling in asthma. Further, the literature suggests that in cystic fibrosis TRPV4 may improve ciliary beat frequency (CBF) enhancing mucociliary clearance, while at the same time increasing pro-inflammatory cytokine secretion/lung tissue injury. Currently it is understood that the role of TRPV4 in immune cell function and associated lung tissue injury/ARDS may depend on the injury stimulus. Uncovering the downstream mechanisms of TRPV4 action in
Background: To test the hypothesis that in early, mild, acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) patients with diffuse loss of aeration, the application of the open lung approach (OLA) would improve homogeneity in lung aeration and lung mechanics, without affecting hemodynamics. Methods: Patients were ventilated according to the ARDS Network protocol at baseline (pre-OLA). OLA consisted in a recruitment maneuver followed by a decremental positive end-expiratory pressure trial. Respiratory mechanics, gas exchange, electrical impedance tomography (EIT), cardiac index, and stroke volume variation were measured at baseline and 20 min after OLA implementation (post-OLA). Esophageal pressure was used for lung and chest wall elastance partitioning. The tomographic lung image obtained at the fifth intercostal space by EIT was divided in two ventral and two dorsal regions of interest (ROIventral and ROIDorsal). Results: Fifteen consecutive patients were studied. The OLA increased arterial oxygen ...

This one-year prospective observational study found that community-acquired ARDS patients had better short- and long-term mortality rates than hospital-acquired and ICU-acquired ARDS patients. Community-acquired ARDS patients had less underlying moderate to severe liver disease than hospital-acquired and ICU-acquired ARDS patients. The community-acquired ARDS patients had more ICU-free days than hospital-acquired or ICU-acquired ARDS patients and the ICU-acquired ARDS patients had fewer ventilator-free days than community-acquired or hospital-acquired ARDS patients.. The incidence of ARDS varies widely. Differences in demographics, healthcare systems, and definitions may account for different incidences of ARDS in different areas or countries. In adult population-based studies, the incidence of ARDS by the American-European consensus (AECC) definition ranged from 5-7.2 cases/100,000/year in Europe to 33.8/100,000/year in USA [11, 19-21]. For ICU patients, the reported incidence of ALI/ARDS by ...

BACKGROUND:This study assessed the clinical characteristics of neonatal acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) and differences in therapy in comparison to RDS. MATERIAL AND METHODS:The clinical data of 925 preterm infants with respiratory distress were collected and divided into 4 groups. Group A and B both met the diagnosis of neonatal RDS, whereas infants in group B also showed inflammatory response. Group C met the Montreux definition of neonatal ARDS and group D was the control. RESULTS:We found that 73.50% of the 925 preterm infants were diagnosed with RDS, of which RDS with inflammatory response accounted for 42.05%. ARDS accounted for 5.29% and control group accounted for 21.19%. Group C infants were the heaviest (2168.16±654.43 g) and had the oldest gestational age. The pregnancy-induced hypertension was highest (30.07%) in group B and lowest in group D (13.26%). Group C had higher iNO and longer invasive ventilator times, but had less frequent surfactant treatment, as well as shorter

This 65 year-old male patient with necrotising fasciitis, septic shock and acute renal failure had progressive respiratory failure requiring ventilation. The CXR above shows multifocal bilateral air-space opacities, in a predominantly perihilar and lower zone distribution. This is a characteristic appearance of ARDS in the appropriate clinical context. The differential diagnosis includes infection (also a common complication of ARDS), and cardiogenic pulmonary edema. Differentiation can be impossible in some cases.. The causes of ARDS include: trauma; septicaemia; hypovolaemic shock; fat embolism; near-drowning; burns; viral pneumonia; pancreatitis; oxygen toxicity; and disseminated intravascular coagulopathy. ARDS mortality is high, around 50%, and many survivors develop chronic lung disease, with damaged lung healing by fibrosis. A minority recover fully.. Reference: Sutton D.

DURHAM, N.C., Biomarck Pharmaceuticals, Ltd today announced that the first patients have been treated with BIO-11006 in a Phase 2 clinical study for patients with Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS). This trial will evaluate the safety and efficacy of Biomarcks novel, patented, MARCKS protein inhibitor in a placebo controlled trial where all patients receive mechanical ventilation as standard of care.. Currently there are no approved treatments for ARDS other than mechanical ventilation in an ICU and even then up to 40% of patients die within 30 days. As this disease occurs in approximately 200,000 patients per year in the US, the potential to save lives is very clear. Animal studies have shown the ability of BIO-11006 to prevent the disease in the two most predictive models of ARDS and have shown the unique capability to reverse established ARDS. The initiation of this clinical study represents a significant milestone for Biomarck as we progress to clinically develop our patented ...

The influenza H1N1 epidemics in 2009 led a substantial number of people to develop severe acute respiratory distress syndrome and refractory hypoxemia. In these patients, extracorporeal membrane oxygenation was used as rescue oxygenation therapy. Several randomized clinical trials and observational studies suggested that extracorporeal membrane oxygenation associated with protective mechanical ventilation could improve outcome, but its efficacy remains uncertain.

The acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) is a major cause of acute respiratory failure. Its development leads to high rates of mortality, as well as short- and long-term complications, such as physical and cognitive impairment. Key components of a strategy include avoiding lung overdistension by limiting tidal volumes and airway pressures, and the use of positive endexpiratory pressure with or without lung recruitment manoeuvres in patients with severe ARDS.In this review article, we describe updated concepts in ARDS. Specifically, we discuss the new definition of ARDS, its risk factors and pathophysiology, and current evidence regarding ventilation management, prone ventilation, and intervention required in refractory hypoxemia.. ...

Introduction: Coagulation and fibrinolysis remain sparsely addressed with regards to acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). We hypothesized that ARDS development might be associated with changes in plasma coagulation and fibrinolysis. Our aim was to investigate the relationships between ARDS diagnosis and plasma concentrations of tissue factor (TF), tissue plasminogen activator (t-PA), and plasminogen activator inhibitor- 1 (PAI-1) in mechanically ventilated patients at increased risk of developing ARDS. Materials and methods: We performed an ethically approved prospective observational pilot study. Inclusion criteria were patients with PaO2/FiO2 < 300 mmHg admitted to the intensive care unit (ICU) for mechanical ventilation for 24 h, or more, because of one or more disease conditions associated with increased risk of developing ARDS. Exclusion criteria were age below 18 years; cardiac disease. We sampled plasma prospectively and compared patients who developed ARDS with those who did not ...
The purpose of this study was to perform a systematic review and meta-analysis of exogenous surfactant administration to assess whether this therapy may be useful in adult patients with acute respiratory distress syndrome. We performed a computerized literature search from 1966 to December 2005 to identify randomized clinical trials. The primary outcome measure was mortality 28-30 days after randomization. Secondary outcome measures included a change in oxygenation (PaO2:FiO2 ratio), the number of ventilation-free days, and the mean duration of ventilation. Meta-analysis was performed using the inverse variance method. Two hundred and fifty-one articles were identified. Five studies met our inclusion criteria. Treatment with pulmonary surfactant was not associated with reduced mortality compared with the control group (odds ratio 0.97; 95% confidence interval (CI) 0.73, 1.30). Subgroup analysis revealed no difference between surfactant containing surface protein or not - the pooled odds ratio for
The present study aimed to evaluate the predictive value of serum soluble urokinase plasminogen activator receptor (suPAR) regarding the risk of acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) in sepsis patients, and investigate its correlation/association with disease severity, inflammation and mortality in sepsis patients with ARDS. A total of 57 sepsis patients with ARDS and 58 sepsis patients without ARDS were recruited for the present case‑control study. Laboratory tests, acute physiology and chronic health evaluation (APACHE) II score and sequential organ failure assessment (SOFA) score were evaluated, and mortality during hospitalization was recorded. Blood samples were collected and serum suPAR was detected by ELISA. Furthermore, tumor necrosis factor (TNF)‑α, interleukin (IL)‑1β, IL‑6, IL‑8, IL‑10 and IL‑17, as well as C‑reactive protein (CRP) were detected. The results indicated that the serum levels of suPAR in sepsis patients with ARDS were higher than those in sepsis ...

Stenotrophomonas maltophilia-induced pulmonary haemorrhage is considered a fatal infection among haematological patients. The outcome can be explained by the patients immunity status and late diagnosis and treatment. We present the rare case of successful outcome in a 61-year-old female who developed alveolar haemorrhage and acute respiratory distress syndrome 8 days after a chemotherapy session for her acute lymphoblastic leukaemia, in the context of secondary bone marrow aplasia. Stenotrophomonas maltophilia was isolated in sputum culture. The patient benefitted from early empirical treatment with colistin followed by trimethoprim/sulfamethoxazole, according to the antibiogram. Despite a severe initial clinical presentation in need of mechanical ventilation, neuromuscular blocking agents infusion, and ventilation in prone position, the patient had a favourable outcome and was discharged from intensive care after 26 days.

We conclude that ECMO presents a therapeutic option for ARDS patients who fail to respond to conventional mechanical ventilation ...
Respiratory distress syndrome, also known as hyaline membrane disease, occurs almost exclusively in premature infants. The incidence and severity of respiratory distress syndrome are related inversely to the gestational age of the newborn infant.
The results from the meta-analysis are in accord with recent literature questioning the decrease in mortality in ARDS in the past decade despite the implementation of new ventilatory strategies.6-8 In the ARDSNet trial,9 a significant reduction in mortality was observed when a protective strategy, based on a low tidal volume (6 ml/kg), was used. But we may speculate that patients were actually being protected from an aggressive strategy (tidal volume 12 ml/kg in the control arm). It is likely that the application of a high PEEP in the initial phase of severe ARDS, with an expected important lung edema and inflammation, is justified.10 Even accepting this approach, it remains unanswered for how long the PEEP should be high. The lack of clear benefits in unselected patients is probably related to the absence of objective tests that help in the individual titration of the ventilatory parameters. Several techniques have been proposed, such as the plotting of pressure-volume curves,11 the ...

In sedated and paralyzed children with acute respiratory failure, the compliance of respiratory system and functional residual capacity were significantly reduced compared with healthy subjects. However, no major studies in children with ARDS have investigated the role of different levels of PEEP and tidal volume on the partitioned respiratory mechanic (lung and chest wall), stress (transpulmonary pressure) and strain (inflated volume above the functional residual capacity). The end-expiratory lung volume was measured using a simplified closed circuit helium dilution method. During an inspiratory and expiratory pause, the airway and esophageal pressure were measured. Transpulmonary pressure was computed as the difference between airway and esophageal pressure. Ten intubated sedated paralyzed healthy children and ten children with ARDS underwent a PEEP trial (4 and 12 cmH2O) with a tidal volume of 8, 10 and 12 ml/kgIBW. The two groups were comparable for age and BMI (2.5 [1.0-5.5] vs 3.0 [1.7-7.2] years

The Waters lab focuses on mechanobiology and acute lung injury. Patients with acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) are placed on mechanical ventilators to improve oxygenation, but the ventilator may cause additional injury to the lungs due to either overdistention or airway collapse and reopening. Clinical trials have demonstrated a substantial reduction in mortality in ARDS patients when ventilation strategies are used that reduce overdistention (lower tidal volumes) and minimize airway collapse and reopening (positive end expiratory pressure). The lung is a mechanically dynamic organ, and cells in the lung are subjected to shear stress due to fluid flow, tensile and compressive forces due to respiratory motion, and normal forces due to vascular or airway pressure. High tidal volume mechanical ventilation in injured lungs induces mechanical stresses that increase injury to the lung epithelium, stimulate inflammatory responses, and decrease repair mechanisms. We are focusing on the ...
ARDS is treated in the intensive care unit. Treatment focuses on getting oxygen to the lungs and other organs, and then treating the cause of ARDS.. Oxygen therapy may be given through a mask that fits over the mouth. If you still have trouble breathing, your doctor may insert a breathing tube that is connected to a machine (ventilator). The breathing tube will help you breathe until you can breathe on your own.. Your doctor may also give you medicines, such as antibiotics, to treat an infection if it is causing ARDS. You may also be given fluids through an IV to help you recover. ...

The severity and incidence of this pathology are directly related to the degree of prematurity, and children born before the 28th week of gestation are at greater risk.. Respiratory insufficiency in preterm infants with RDS occurs due to a shortage in the pulmonary surfactant reserve, which helps to create a biofilm that covers the inner walls of the alveoli. The physiological role of the surfactant is to allow the lungs to expand and prevent collapse (atelectasis) during the expiratory phase. The lack of surfactant results in difficulty in breathing, low oxygenation, increased effort and the need for external respiratory support.. The surfactant reserve available in a premature baby is usually very limited compared to that of a full-term newborn and decreases as a result of RDS. When ...

ARDS often needs to be treated in an intensive care unit (ICU).. The goal of treatment is to provide breathing support and treat the cause of ARDS. This may involve medicines to treat infections, reduce inflammation, and remove fluid from the lungs.. A ventilator is used to deliver high doses of oxygen and positive pressure to the damaged lungs. People often need to be deeply sedated with medicines. During treatment, health care providers make every effort to protect the lungs from further damage. Treatment is mainly supportive until the lungs recover.. Sometimes, a treatment called extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) is done. During ECMO, blood is filtered through a machine to provide oxygen and remove carbon dioxide.. ...

Caused by pulmonary or systemic insults, is characterized clinically by hypoxemia that does not respond to the administration of high concentrations of oxygen (FiO2) and by the presence of bilateral infiltrates on chest imaging due to high-permeability pulmonary edema (1). An integral part of the supportive therapy of ARDS is the application of mechanical ventilation (MV). The goal of MV is to achieve adequate gas exchange and tissue oxygenation without further damaging the lungs. Since the first description of ARDS in 1967 (2), the use of positive end-expiratory pressure (PEEP) has been adopted as standard practice for its ...
