The capability of the LUNGS to distend under pressure as measured by pulmonary volume change per unit pressure change. While not a complete description of the pressure-volume properties of the lung, it is nevertheless useful in practice as a measure of the comparative stiffness of the lung. (From Best & Taylor's Physiological Basis of Medical Practice, 12th ed, p562)
Lung Volume Measurements
Any method of artificial breathing that employs mechanical or non-mechanical means to force the air into and out of the lungs. Artificial respiration or ventilation is used in individuals who have stopped breathing or have RESPIRATORY INSUFFICIENCY to increase their intake of oxygen (O2) and excretion of carbon dioxide (CO2).
Pulmonary Gas Exchange
Expiratory Reserve Volume
Work of Breathing
RESPIRATORY MUSCLE contraction during INHALATION. The work is accomplished in three phases: LUNG COMPLIANCE work, that required to expand the LUNGS against its elastic forces; tissue resistance work, that required to overcome the viscosity of the lung and chest wall structures; and AIRWAY RESISTANCE work, that required to overcome airway resistance during the movement of air into the lungs. Work of breathing does not refer to expiration, which is entirely a passive process caused by elastic recoil of the lung and chest cage. (Guyton, Textbook of Medical Physiology, 8th ed, p406)

Respiratory Physiological Phenomena
Respiratory Function Tests
Functional Residual Capacity
The act of breathing with the LUNGS, consisting of INHALATION, or the taking into the lungs of the ambient air, and of EXHALATION, or the expelling of the modified air which contains more CARBON DIOXIDE than the air taken in (Blakiston's Gould Medical Dictionary, 4th ed.). This does not include tissue respiration (= OXYGEN CONSUMPTION) or cell respiration (= CELL RESPIRATION).
Techniques for effecting the transition of the respiratory-failure patient from mechanical ventilation to spontaneous ventilation, while meeting the criteria that tidal volume be above a given threshold (greater than 5 ml/kg), respiratory frequency be below a given count (less than 30 breaths/min), and oxygen partial pressure be above a given threshold (PaO2 greater than 50mm Hg). Weaning studies focus on finding methods to monitor and predict the outcome of mechanical ventilator weaning as well as finding ventilatory support techniques which will facilitate successful weaning. Present methods include intermittent mandatory ventilation, intermittent positive pressure ventilation, and mandatory minute volume ventilation.
Total Lung Capacity
The volume of air contained in the lungs at the end of a maximal inspiration. It is the equivalent to each of the following sums: VITAL CAPACITY plus RESIDUAL VOLUME; INSPIRATORY CAPACITY plus FUNCTIONAL RESIDUAL CAPACITY; TIDAL VOLUME plus INSPIRATORY RESERVE VOLUME plus functional residual capacity; or tidal volume plus inspiratory reserve volume plus EXPIRATORY RESERVE VOLUME plus residual volume.
Positive-Pressure Respiration, Intrinsic
Non-therapeutic positive end-expiratory pressure occurring frequently in patients with severe airway obstruction. It can appear with or without the administration of external positive end-expiratory pressure (POSITIVE-PRESSURE RESPIRATION). It presents an important load on the inspiratory muscles which are operating at a mechanical disadvantage due to hyperinflation. Auto-PEEP may cause profound hypotension that should be treated by intravascular volume expansion, increasing the time for expiration, and/or changing from assist mode to intermittent mandatory ventilation mode. (From Harrison's Principles of Internal Medicine, 12th ed, p1127)
Lung Diseases, Obstructive
Respiratory Distress Syndrome, Newborn
A condition of the newborn marked by DYSPNEA with CYANOSIS, heralded by such prodromal signs as dilatation of the alae nasi, expiratory grunt, and retraction of the suprasternal notch or costal margins, mostly frequently occurring in premature infants, children of diabetic mothers, and infants delivered by cesarean section, and sometimes with no apparent predisposing cause.
Forced Expiratory Volume
Measure of the maximum amount of air that can be expelled in a given number of seconds during a FORCED VITAL CAPACITY determination . It is usually given as FEV followed by a subscript indicating the number of seconds over which the measurement is made, although it is sometimes given as a percentage of forced vital capacity.
Any of various animals that constitute the family Suidae and comprise stout-bodied, short-legged omnivorous mammals with thick skin, usually covered with coarse bristles, a rather long mobile snout, and small tail. Included are the genera Babyrousa, Phacochoerus (wart hogs), and Sus, the latter containing the domestic pig (see SUS SCROFA).
Pulmonary Disease, Chronic Obstructive
Expiratory and inspiratory chest computed tomography and pulmonary function tests in cigarette smokers. (1/2868)This study evaluated small airway dysfunction and emphysematous destruction of lung parenchyma in cigarette smokers, using chest expiratory high-resolution computed tomography (HRCT) and pulmonary function tests (PFT). The degree of emphysematous destruction was classified by visual scoring (VS) and the average HRCT number at full expiration/full inspiration (E/I ratio) calculated in 63 male smokers and 10 male nonsmokers (group A). The Brinkman smoking index (BI), defined as cigarettes x day(-1) x yrs, was estimated. Sixty-three smokers were divided into three groups by PFT: group B1 (n=7), with normal PFT; group B2 (n=21), with diffusing capacity of the lung for carbon monoxide (DL,CO) > or = 80% predicted, forced expiratory volume in one second (FEV1) < 80% pred and/or residual volume (RV) > 120% pred; and group B3 (n=35), with DL,CO < 80% pred, FEV1 < 80% pred and/or RV > 120% pred. Heavy smokers (BI > or = 600) (n=48) showed a significant increase in emphysema by both VS and E/I. E/I was significantly elevated in both group B2 (mean+/-SD 0.95+/-0.05) and B3 (0.96+/-0.06) compared with group B1 (0.89+/-0.03). VS could not differentiate group B2 (3.9+/-5.0) from B1 (1.1+/-1.6). These findings suggest that the expiration/inspiration ratio reflects hyperinflation and airway obstruction, regardless of the functional characteristics of emphysema, in cigarette smokers. (+info)
Differences in spontaneous breathing pattern and mechanics in patients with severe COPD recovering from acute exacerbation. (2/2868)The aims of this study were to assess spontaneous breathing patterns in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) recovering from acute exacerbation and to assess the relationship between different breathing patterns and clinical and functional parameters of respiratory impairment. Thirty-four COPD patients underwent assessment of lung function tests, arterial blood gases, haemodynamics, breathing pattern (respiratory frequency (fR), tidal volume (VT), inspiratory and expiratory time (tI and tE), duty cycle (tI/ttot), VT/tI) and mechanics (oesophageal pressure (Poes), work of breathing (WOB), pressure-time product and index, and dynamic intrinsic positive end-expiratory pressure (PEEPi,dyn)). According to the presence (group 1) or absence (group 2) of Poes swings during the expiratory phase (premature inspiration), 20 (59%) patients were included in group 1 and 14 (41%) in group 2. Premature inspirations were observed 4.5+/-6.4 times x min(-1) (range 1-31), i.e. 20+/-21% (3.7-100%) of total fR calculated from VT tracings. In group 1 the coefficient of variation in VT, tE, tI/ttot, PEEPi,dyn, Poes and WOB of the eight consecutive breaths immediately preceding the premature inspiration was greater than that of eight consecutive breaths in group 2. There were no significant differences in the assessed parameters between the two groups in the overall population, whereas patients with chronic hypoxaemia in group 1 showed a more severe impairment in clinical conditions, mechanics and lung function than hypoxaemic patients in group 2. In spontaneously breathing patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease recovering from an acute exacerbation, detectable activity of inspiratory muscles during expiration was found in more than half of the cases. This phenomenon was not associated with any significant differences in anthropometric, demographic, physiological or clinical characteristics. (+info)
Respiratory muscle involvement in multiple sclerosis. (3/2868)Respiratory complications are common in the terminal stages of multiple sclerosis and contribute to mortality in these patients. When respiratory motor pathways are involved, respiratory muscle weakness frequently occurs. Although it is well established that weakness of the respiratory muscles produces a restrictive ventilatory defect, the degree of muscle weakness and pulmonary function are poorly related. Respiratory muscle weakness was observed in patients with normal or near normal pulmonary function. Expiratory muscle weakness is more prominent than inspiratory muscle weakness and may impair performance of coughing. Subsequently, in addition to bulbar dysfunction, respiratory muscle weakness may contribute to ineffective coughing, pneumonia, and sometimes even acute ventilatory failure may ensue. Respiratory muscle weakness may also occur early in the course of the disease. Recent studies suggest that the respiratory muscles can be trained for both strength and endurance in multiple sclerosis patients. Whether respiratory muscle training delays the development of respiratory dysfunction and subsequently improves exercise capacity and cough efficacy, prevents pulmonary complications or prolongs survival in the long-term remains to be determined.

Stroke volume decline during prolonged exercise is influenced by the increase in heart rate. (4/2868)This study determined whether the decline in stroke volume (SV) during prolonged exercise is related to an increase in heart rate (HR) and/or an increase in cutaneous blood flow (CBF). Seven active men cycled for 60 min at approximately 57% peak O2 uptake in a neutral environment (i.e., 27 degrees C, <40% relative humidity). They received a placebo control (CON) or a small oral dose (i.e., approximately 7 mg) of the beta1-adrenoceptor blocker atenolol (BB) at the onset of exercise. At 15 min, HR and SV were similar during CON and BB. From 15 to 55 min during CON, a 13% decline in SV was associated with an 11% increase in HR and not with an increase in CBF. CBF increased mainly from 5 to 15 min and remained stable from 20 to 60 min of exercise in both treatments. However, from 15 to 55 min during BB, when the increase in HR was prevented by atenolol, the decline in SV was also prevented, despite a normal CBF response (i.e., similar to CON). Cardiac output was similar in both treatments and stable throughout the exercise bouts. We conclude that during prolonged exercise in a neutral environment the decline in SV is related to the increase in HR and is not affected by CBF. (+info)
Heart rate during exercise with leg vascular occlusion in spinal cord-injured humans. (5/2868)Feed-forward and feedback mechanisms are both important for control of the heart rate response to muscular exercise, but their origin and relative importance remain inadequately understood. To evaluate whether humoral mechanisms are of importance, the heart rate response to electrically induced cycling was studied in participants with spinal cord injury (SCI) and compared with that elicited during volitional cycling in able-bodied persons (C). During voluntary exercise at an oxygen uptake of approximately 1 l/min, heart rate increased from 66 +/- 4 to 86 +/- 4 (SE) beats/min in seven C, and during electrically induced exercise at a similar oxygen uptake in SCI it increased from 73 +/- 3 to 110 +/- 8 beats/min. In contrast, blood pressure increased only in C (from 88 +/- 3 to 99 +/- 4 mmHg), confirming that, during exercise, blood pressure control is dominated by peripheral neural feedback mechanisms. With vascular occlusion of the legs, the exercise-induced increase in heart rate was reduced or even eliminated in the electrically stimulated SCI. For C, heart rate tended to be lower than during exercise with free circulation to the legs. Release of the cuff elevated heart rate only in SCI. These data suggest that humoral feedback is of importance for the heart rate response to exercise and especially so when influence from the central nervous system and peripheral neural feedback from the working muscles are impaired or eliminated during electrically induced exercise in individuals with SCI. (+info)
Breathing responses to small inspiratory threshold loads in humans. (6/2868)To investiage the effect of inspiratory threshold load (ITL) on breathing, all previous work studied loads that were much greater than would be encountered under pathophysiological conditions. We hypothesized that mild ITL from 2.5 to 20 cmH2O is sufficient to modify control and sensation of breathing. The study was performed in healthy subjects. The results demonstrated that with mild ITL 1) inspiratory difficulty sensation could be perceived at an ITL of 2.5 cmH2O; 2) tidal volume increased without change in breathing frequency, resulting in hyperpnea; and 3) although additional time was required for inspiratory pressure to attain the threshold before inspiratory flow was initiated, the total inspiratory muscle contraction time remained constant. This resulted in shortening of the available time for inspiratory flow, so that the tidal volume was maintained or increased by significant increase in mean inspiratory flow. On the basis of computer simulation, we conclude that the mild ITL is sufficient to increase breathing sensation and alter breathing control, presumably aiming at maintaining a certain level of ventilation but minimizing the energy consumption of the inspiratory muscles.

Capsaicin-sensitive C-fiber-mediated protective responses in ozone inhalation in rats. (7/2868)To assess the role of lung sensory C fibers during and after inhalation of 1 part/million ozone for 8 h, we compared breathing pattern responses and epithelial injury-inflammation-repair in rats depleted of C fibers by systemic administration of capsaicin as neonates and in vehicle-treated control animals. Capsaicin-treated rats did not develop ozone-induced rapid, shallow breathing. Capsaicin-treated rats showed more severe necrosis in the nasal cavity and greater inflammation throughout the respiratory tract than did control rats exposed to ozone. Incorporation of 5-bromo-2'-deoxyuridine (a marker of DNA synthesis associated with proliferation) into terminal bronchiolar epithelial cells was not significantly affected by capsaicin treatment in rats exposed to ozone. However, when normalized to the degree of epithelial necrosis present in each rat studied, there was less 5-bromo-2'-deoxyuridine labeling in the terminal bronchioles of capsaicin-treated rats. These observations suggest that the ozone-induced release of neuropeptides does not measurably contribute to airway inflammation but may play a role in modulating basal and reparative airway epithelial cell proliferation.

Acinar flow irreversibility caused by perturbations in reversible alveolar wall motion. (8/2868)Mixing associated with "stretch-and-fold" convective flow patterns has recently been demonstrated to play a potentially important role in aerosol transport and deposition deep in the lung (J. P. Butler and A. Tsuda. J. Appl. Physiol. 83: 800-809, 1997), but the origin of this potent mechanism is not well characterized. In this study we hypothesized that even a small degree of asynchrony in otherwise reversible alveolar wall motion is sufficient to cause flow irreversibility and stretch-and-fold convective mixing. We tested this hypothesis using a large-scale acinar model consisting of a T-shaped junction of three short, straight, square ducts. The model was filled with silicone oil, and alveolar wall motion was simulated by pistons in two of the ducts. The pistons were driven to generate a low-Reynolds-number cyclic flow with a small amount of asynchrony in boundary motion adjusted to match the degree of geometric (as distinguished from pressure-volume) hysteresis found in rabbit lungs (H. Miki, J. P. Butler, R. A. Rogers, and J. Lehr. J. Appl. Physiol. 75: 1630-1636, 1993). Tracer dye was introduced into the system, and its motion was monitored. The results showed that even a slight asynchrony in boundary motion leads to flow irreversibility with complicated swirling tracer patterns. Importantly, the kinematic irreversibility resulted in stretching of the tracer with narrowing of the separation between adjacent tracer lines, and when the cycle-by-cycle narrowing of lateral distance reached the slowly growing diffusion distance of the tracer, mixing abruptly took place. This coupling of evolving convective flow patterns with diffusion is the essence of the stretch-and-fold mechanism. We conclude that even a small degree of boundary asynchrony can give rise to stretch-and-fold convective mixing, thereby leading to transport and deposition of fine and ultrafine aerosol particles deep in the lung.

N2 - Because of the wide utilization of rodents as animal models in respiratory research and the limited data on measurements of respiratory input impedance (Zrs) in small animals, we measured Zrs between 0.25 and 9.125 Hz at different levels (0-7 hPa) of positive end-expiratory pressure (PEEP) in mice, rats, guinea pigs, and rabbits using a computer-controlled small-animal ventilator (Schuessler TF and Bates JHT, IEEE Trans Biomed Eng 42: 860-866, 1995). Zrs was fitted with a model, including a Newtonian resistance (R) and inertance in series with a constant-phase tissue compartment characterized by tissue damping (Gti) and elastance (Hti) parameters. Inertance was negligible in all cases. R, Gti, and Hti were normalized to body weight, yielding normalized R, Gti, and Hti (NHti), respectively. ...
Chest wall mechanics during pressure support ventilation | Critical Care | Full Text
The pattern of breathing was modified markedly by increasing the level of pressure support, with increased tidal volume and reductions in respiratory rate, WOB and P0.1. Furthermore, our data indicate that arterial carbon dioxide tension, minute ventilation and inspiratory flow were maintained nearly constant, independent of pressure support level. This suggests that there are different mechanisms of adaptation resulting in different breathing patterns at different levels of pressure support, from a pattern similar to rapid shallow breathing (pressure support at 5 cmH2O) to one similar to completely passive pressure control ventilation (pressure support at 25 cmH2O). The relationship we found between respiratory rate and tidal volume, for different f/Vt isopleths, was similar to that reported by Yang and Tobin  in spontaneously breathing individuals. Few previous studies have systematically investigated the effects of pressure support level on breathing pattern in non-COPD patients with ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Lung parenchymal mechanics. AU - Suki, Béla. AU - Stamenović, Dimitrije. AU - Hubmayr, Rolf. PY - 2011/7/1. Y1 - 2011/7/1. N2 - The lung parenchyma comprises a large number of thin-walled alveoli, forming an enormous surface area, which serves to maintain proper gas exchange. The alveoli are held open by the transpulmonary pressure, or prestress, which is balanced by tissues forces and alveolar surface film forces. Gas exchange efficiency is thus inextricably linked to three fundamental features of the lung: parenchymal architecture, prestress, and the mechanical properties of the parenchyma. The prestress is a key determinant of lung deformability that influences many phenomena including local ventilation, regional blood flow, tissue stiffness, smooth muscle contractility, and alveolar stability. The main pathway for stress transmission is through the extracellular matrix. Thus, the mechanical properties of the matrix play a key role both in lung function and biology. These ...
Individualized Intensity Zones - Part 2 - Respiratory System | TeamRunningFree.com
In this second posting on this topic, I will attempt to bring together some of the latest research that I have found regarding a very controversial topic of respiratory system weakness. In other words, there is something about your respiratory system that is limiting performance. How does this happen?. I propose, here, a different type of zoning. Most people talk about fat burning zones, or carb burning zones, or threshold power. I propose here zoning based on respiratory mechanics, and, especially if your primary weakness is based on respiratory mechanics.. You say what???. Many, many coaches have shot me down for making such a comment. They say that the respiratory muscles are sometimes insignificant in the overall production of a PB performance. Many of these traditional coaches also think that to succeed, you must be training hard or long all the time, and you must have a winning attitude. I dont disagree with the psychological aspect of a PB performance, but instead of training hard or ...
Patient-ventilator asynchronies: may the respiratory mechanics play a role? | Critical Care | Full Text
The mechanisms leading to patient/ventilator asynchrony has never been systematically assessed. We studied the possible association between asynchrony and respiratory mechanics in patients ready to be enrolled for a home non-invasive ventilatory program. Secondarily, we looked for possible differences in the amount of asynchronies between obstructive and restrictive patients and a possible role of asynchrony in influencing the tolerance of non-invasive ventilation (NIV). The respiratory pattern and mechanics of 69 consecutive patients with chronic respiratory failure were recorded during spontaneous breathing. After that patients underwent non-invasive ventilation for 60 minutes with a dedicated NIV platform in a pressure support mode during the day. In the last 15 minutes of this period, asynchrony events were detected and classified as ineffective effort (IE), double triggering (DT) and auto-triggering (AT). The overall number of asynchronies was not influenced by any variable of respiratory

A fast gas-mixing system for breath-to-breath respiratory control studies. - Department of Physiology, Anatomy and Genetics ...
A computer-controlled gas-mixing system that manipulates inspired CO2 and O2 on a breath-to-breath basis has been developed. The system uses pairs of solenoid valves, one pair for each gas. These valves can either be fully shut when a low voltage is applied, or fully open when a high voltage is applied. The valves cycle open and shut every 1/12 s. A circuit converts signals from the computer, which dictates the flows of the gases, into a special form for driving the valve pairs. These signals determine the percentage of time within the 1/12-s cycle each valve spends in a open state and the percentage of time it spends shut, which, in effect, set the average flows of the various gases to the mixing chamber. The delay for response of the system to commanded CO2 or O2 changes is less than 200 ms. The system has application for the manipulation of inspired gas fractions so as to achieve desired end-tidal forcing functions.

One Breath at a Time: Reducing Your Stress Response During Recovery - Alta Mira Recovery
Weve all been there. There is too much going on in our lives: we just started a new job, moved into a new apartment, and experienced a death in the family all in the same month, and the stress over it all is piling up like dirty laundry. No matter what youve been through with addiction or what you are currently going through on your road to recovery, it seems that stress knows where you hide, and finds you often. While it is certainly a part of being human, the negative effects that stress has on our bodies are scary-and almost unbelievable. Cortisol, the hormone responsible for stress, can literally transform the cells in your brain into ones that prevent communication with your prefrontal cortex, the area responsible for not only learning and memory, but anxiety, depression, and other mood disorders.

Deterioration of Nighttime Respiratory Mechanics in Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease: Impact of Bronchodilator Therapy. |...
Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is associated with nighttime respiratory symptoms, poor sleep quality, and increased risk of nocturnal mortality. Overnight deterioration of inspiratory capacity (IC) and forced expiratory volume in 1 second (FEV1) have previously been documented. However, the precise nature of this deterioration and mechanisms by which evening bronchodilators may mitigate this have not been studied.To determine the effect of evening dosing of dual, long-acting bronchodilators on detailed nocturnal respiratory mechanics and inspiratory neural drive (IND).A double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled crossover study assessed the effects of evening long-acting bronchodilators (BD; aclidinium bromide/formoterol fumarate dihydrate, 400/12 mcg) or placebo (PL) on morning trough IC (12 hours post-dose; primary outcome) and serial overnight measurements of spirometry, dynamic respiratory mechanics and IND (secondary outcomes).20 participants with COPD (moderate/severe ...
Effects of PEEP on Respiratory Mechanics after Open Heart Surgery (5) - Antibiotics Online - antibacterialmedical.com
Measurements were obtained first at zero end-expiratory pressure (ZEEP). PEEP was then applied in increments of 2 cm H20. At each PEEP level, measurements were done after patients were judged to have reached a steady state by stability of the RIP sum signal and Pao signal (usually within 1 min). End-inspiratory occlusions were obtained by pressing the inspiratory hold button of the ventilator for 5 to 6 s. During this period, the contribution of reduction in pressure due to volume loss by continuing gas exchange should be negligible. On reestablishing a steady state (usually within a few breaths), end-expiratory occlusions were done by pressing the end-expiratory hold button of the ventilator for 5 to 6 s.. All patients were studied up to a PEEP of 10 cm H20. In seven patients, higher levels of PEEP were used (up to 12 to 18 cm H20). The above measurements were then performed while PEEP was reduced stepwise to zero in decrements of 2 cm HaO. The whole procedure was repeated three times. ...

We aimed to investigate the immediate respiratory effects of cigar smoking(CS), among young smokers with and without mild asthma. Forty-seven young smokers (18-31years old, 29 males, average pack-years = 3.6 ± 2.8) were enrolled. Twenty-two were mild asthmatics(MA-subgroup) and the remaining 25 were otherwise healthy smokers(HS-subgroup). Exhaled carbon monoxide(eCO), multi-frequency respiratory system impedance(Z), resistance(R), reactance(X), frequency-dependence of resistance(fdr = R5Hz - R20Hz), resonant frequency(fres), reactance area(AX) and exhaled nitric oxide(FENO) were measured at the aforementioned sequence, before and immediately after 30 min of CS, or equal session in the smoking area while using a sham cigar(control group). Chi-square, students t-tests, mixed linear models and Pearson correlation tests were used for the statistical analysis; level of significance was defined as p | 0.05. Immediately after CS, Z5Hz, R5Hz, R10Hz, R20Hz and eCO increased significantly in both subgroups(MA
CT-SCAN EVIDENCE OF HYPERINFLATION DURING NIH PROTECTIVESTRATEGY VENTILATION IN ARDS PATIENTS | IRIS Univ. Sassari
INTRODUCTION. NIH mechanical ventilation protocol is the standard of care in ARDS. However individual characteristics of respiratory mechanics may expose the lung to some degree of mechanical stress. In the present study we tested the hypotesis that combination of morphological (CT scan) and functional (static PV curve) analysis may identify patients at risk of mechanical stress. METHODS. 22 ARDS patients (NIH protective ventilatory strategy) were enrolled. Static P/V curve at zeep where obtained before CT. CT slides were achieved during end-inspiration and end-expiration hold and analyzed to detect total lung volume distribution. RESULTS. In 10 patients the tidal increase in lung volume occurred with a 30-50 % increase of hyperinflated areas. In these patients Pplat during the NIH ventilation was higher than the UIP CONCLUSION. Combined evaluation of lung morphology on respiratory mechanics identify risk of mechanical stress in ARDS patients.. ...
全身体积描记器/无创肺功能仪 - 呼吸与肺功能研究 - 上海玉研科学仪器有限公司
Whole body plethysmography is an application whereby ventilatory parameters are measured while the subject is conscious and unrestrained. By the use of bias airflow supplies, CO2 levels, temperature and humidity are maintained at normal levels enabling measurements to be made over several hours. During inspiration there is a slight net pressure rise within theplethysmograph due to increased temperature and humidity of the air as it enters the subjects lungs (gas conditioning). During normal breathing, this pressure difference is directly proportional to the respiratory pattern of the subject, allowing the researcher to measure respiratory rate and tidal volume, in accordance with ICH S7 Guidelines. The system is commonly used in airway hyper-reactivity studieswhere, in addition to changes in ventilatory parameters, valuable data can obtained by quantifying changes in the shape of the respiratory waveform, e.g., Penh. However, it should be noted that when bronchoconstriction is present, the ...

Breathing Cycle Biofeedback During Computed Tomography Procedures - Tabular View - ClinicalTrials.gov
This study will evaluate the effectiveness of a flexible belt device in guiding patient breathing during computed tomography (CT)-guided needle biopsy. When patients undergo CT scanning to help guide the physician during a tissue biopsy, they are usually asked to hold their breath while the scan is taken of certain parts of the body. When the first scan is completed, the patients are allowed to breathe, and are then asked to hold their breath again while the needle is advanced towards the tissue to be biopsied. Since body organs and tissues move with breathing, this study will try to stop the patients breathing at the same place in the breathing cycle to ensure that the biopsy target stays still and in the same place. This study will see if the flexible belt, used with a computer screen that charts the patients breathing, will improve the patients ability to stop breathing at the same place in the breathing cycle before and during the biopsy..

The main outcome measures evaluated in the present study were the effort value, respiratory mechanics profile, ventilation mode, and type of ventilator-influenced mechanical ventilation asynchrony. Prolonged effort increased premature cycling, whereas a shorter effort was associated with delayed cycling, regardless of the type of ventilator or circuit. The obstructive respiratory mechanics profile favored delayed cycling, whereas the restrictive profile was associated with premature cycling, regardless of the ventilator type or mode. Although the PAV+ mode prevented premature cycling in most situations, it was associated with delayed cycling in the obstructive profile. The PAV+ mode also delivered lower VT values, better inspiratory time synchrony with muscle effort, and shorter inspiratory trigger delay than did PSV.

To assess the contribution of genetic background to respiratory mechanics, we developed a ventilator unit to measure lung function parameters in the mouse. We studied two commonly used inbred mice strains originating from Mus musculus domesticus (C57BL/6 and C3HeB/FeJ) and a third strain derived from Mus musculus molossinus [Japanese fancy mouse 1 (JF1)]. The ventilator allows for accurate performance of the different breathing manoeuvres required for measuring in- and expiratory reserve capacity, quasi-static and dynamic compliance, and airway resistance. In combination with a mass spectrometer for monitoring gas concentrations, single-breath manoeuvres were performed and He-expirograms obtained, from which dead space ...

Changes in respiratory mechanics after tracheostomy
We believe that the rigid nature of the tracheostomy tube represents reduced imposed WOB compared with the longer, thermoliable endotracheal tube. The clinical significance of this effect is small, although as respiratory rate increases, the effects are magnified. In patients in whom extubation fail …
Analysis of Respiratory Mechanics in Patients With Rheumatoid Arthritis - Full Text View - ClinicalTrials.gov
Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is an autoimmune disease of unknown etiology characterized by peripheral polyarthritis, symmetric, which leads to joint destruction and deformity. It is estimated that the RA reaches about 0.5% of the population. According to data from DATASUS, was responsible for 26,671 hospitalizations, 229 deaths and cost exceeding R$ 20 million in 2005-2007.. The main bodily changes are related to joint problems, however, systemic manifestations are also found in organs such as lung and heart. Although cardiovascular diseases are the most responsible of the deaths AR, pulmonary complications are common and account for 10% to 15% of all mortality. Anaya and colleagues point out that the pulmonary involvement contributes significant morbidity and mortality in these patients. Although pulmonary involvement is a frequent manifestation in RA, the prevalence and nature of rheumatoid lung disease has not yet been precisely established. Several lung disorders such as interstitial pulmonary ...
Respiratory Movement Correction in Emission Tomography - Inria
In emission tomography, the process of image reconstruction has evolved since the utilization of the filtered back projection algorithm (FBP). Nowadays, iterative techniques incorporating statistical knowledge of the photon emission process has produced much interest among researchers, not only for the improvements achieved in image quality, but also by the possibility of incorporate corrections factors, like scattering, attenuation, etc. One of the problems that has not been discussed in depth is the incorporation of correction methodologies due to patient breathing, which produces blur regions in lungs and cardiac images. Solutions like respiratory gating, that synchronize the breathing cycle of the patient and the data acquisition process, or correlated dynamic PET techniques that use external radioactive markers and list mode data, have been tested with improvements over the spatial activity distribution in lungs lesions, but with the disadvantages of requiring extra hardware or more expensive
ARTICLES | Journal of Applied Physiology
The changes in neurochemicals within the preBötC/VMC following CBD may reflect changes in the activity of local (21) or distant neurons resulting from a loss of tonic excitatory carotid input. The first synapse of carotid afferents is in the NTS, which projects to multiple sites, including the pFRG/RTN and the serotonergic raphe nuclei (39), both of which project to the pre-BötC/VMC. Data from several studies suggest that neurons in the pFRG/RTN are inherently CO2/H+ sensitive, integrate input from multiple sources, and provide excitatory (glutamatergic) drive to multiple sites of respiratory neurons, including the preBötC (17). Thus the reduction in pFRG/RTN activity after CBD would contribute to the reduced eupneic breathing and ventilatory CO2 chemoreflex.. Similarly, 5-HT neurons in the raphe are believed to affect ventilation through inherent CO2/H+ sensitivity and the release of excitatory neuromodulators within the respiratory network. The neuromodulatory effects of 5-HT neurons occur ...

What does it mean when your out of breath at night - What can cause you to gasp for breath when you are asleep :: Xmms Answers
Ok, so first of all , im no medium (im developing it, i can see auras and such) but i do read, watch and study things like this. First of all, do you have nightmares and things like this when you sleep? What is it doing to be mean? I had a spirit at my old house when i was very young, try to get in contact with me by giving me nightmares and even haunting the basement. I only saw it once , it was very traumatizing. Well anyway, there are a few things do do here are some; 1. try to tell the spirit to back off. Tell them in a strong tone you acknowledge they are there and you dont like them scaring you. Somtimes a spirit wants attention because they wanted it more when they were alive. 2. If you can, try to get clensed by a medium or somthing if you cant get rid of this spirit 3. Ask this spirit, to tell you why its haunting you. It may sound scary but i have heard stories it works. Or if you rather not have a direct approach , try looking back to when this spirit came. What was your life at this ...

Cystic Fibrosis Blogroll: Featured Blogger: Kayla of One Breath at a Time
I like to say that I dont let cystic fibrosis run my life, but it really does affect in in many different ways. For me, the biggest struggle has always been staying compliant with my treatments. They are a time commitment that I have not always been willing to make. When I was younger, my friends would all be outside playing, and I would have to come in to do my treatments. In high school, I had to work my treatments in around my busy schedule. When I got to college, I did my rebelling. No, I didnt go out partying or drinking or smoking. I just stopped doing my treatments and continued being non-compliant throughout my college career. It wasnt until I was threatened with the possibility of a lung transplant at age 22, that I decided to turn things around ...

In Computer system air flow, both the inspiratory tension plus the inspiratory time are set and glued. This differs from BiPAP where the individual controls the inspiratory time. This modality may be useful within the neuromuscular illness patient who does not have the respiratory muscle mass toughness to generate an suitable inspiratory time. Placing a heightened inspiratory time may enhance the tidal quantity presented, nevertheless it may enhance individual-ventilator dyssynchrony if the established inspiratory time is extended compared to affected persons desired inspiratory time ...

Hi Ericka,. I also have asthma, but fortunately dont have to use my ventilator often, only with very strenuous exercise. You will definitely feel shortness of breath at higher altitude, but dont be too quick to jump to asthma causing the problem - everyone feels this lack of oxygen high up. I had a bit of trouble keeping up on the Lares trek when we hit the steep tracks, but just took my time, and took breaks if I needed them. Just be sensible and always take things slowly, theres no need to rush to the top.

Any advice for CT scans, PCOS, or adrenal issues? - cushings ctscan | Ask MetaFilter
The scan itself is easy. They usually last about 10 minutes. You maybe asked to partially disrobe depending what you are wearing, and put on a gown. Then you lay down on a sliding bed that will move you into the CT machine. Usually you are offered a blanket. Then you move into the machine, which is a big round ring/tube (but more open than an MRI). It will slowly move you until the appropriate body part is aligned in the proper placed, then it will move you a little more back and forward as they do the images. You may be asked to hold your breath at certain times, then let it out. This may happen for three or four cycles. When its done you may be asked to wait a few minutes while the radiologist look at the images to make sure they are done correctly. If you have an IV, theyll take it out, you get dressed and then you are done ...
The Impossible Becomes Possible… Upside Down at Forty-Seven - FIND BLISS TOP LEVEL SITE
This is what my Vinyasa, my step by step progression, to handstand looked like, one breath at a time:. STEP 1, plank on the forearm and baby cobra: I got on my mat every day (and continue to) for plank on the forearm and baby cobra. Consistent diligent effort. No matter my attire (sometimes still in my PJs or trickier, in tight jeans). No matter if it was first thing in the morning (preferred time) or the last thing at night (my husband would see me practicing and smile, amazed and impressed with my resolve-motivating and inspiring him and our kids).. STEP 2, handstand prep: In time, I built up the courage to do handstand prep (so hard, still so hard-requires more strength than handstand, but is less scary). I never thought I could get upside down like this when I first started consistently practicing, but again the lesson of letting go of results proved me wrong, for all of a sudden, there I was.. STEP 3 handstand prep raising one leg away from the wall, then the other: Eventually, in ...
Low immune system of 2 year old | Health24
Hi My son is 2 years old and attending creche. For the past 6 months, he has been sick, and always at the doctors, every 3 or 4 weeks. When his condition does get better, then he gets re-infected by the others at his creche. He struggles to breath at night, and very often his temperature goes to about 41 degrees. No antibiotics or medication is helping him. Last week when he went to get his blood tested, his results came back saying that his immune system is very low and may have to get immune boosters once a month at a hospital, through drips. Is this necessary? Is there any other natural way that he can have his immune system boosted. He has to be in creche, but what else can we do, to prevent him from always getting sick. ...
