Breathing responses to small inspiratory threshold loads in humans. (1/1287)

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.  (+info)

Capsaicin-sensitive C-fiber-mediated protective responses in ozone inhalation in rats. (2/1287)

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.  (+info)

Breathing patterns during slow and fast ramp exercise in man. (3/1287)

Breathing frequency (fb), tidal volume (VT), and respiratory timing during slow (SR, 8 W min-1) and fast (FR, 65 W min-1) ramp exercise to exhaustion on a cycle ergometer was examined in seven healthy male subjects. Expiratory ventilation (VE), pulmonary gas exchange (VO2 and VCO2) and end-tidal gas tensions (PET,O2 and PET,CO2) were determined using breath-by-breath techniques. Arterialized venous blood was sampled from a dorsal hand vein at 2 min intervals during SR and 30 s intervals during FR and analysed for arterial plasma PCO2 (PaCO2). PET,CO2 increased with increasing work rates (WRs) below the ventilatory threshold (VT); at WRs > or = 90% VO2,max, PET,CO2 was reduced (P < 0.05) below 0 W values in SR but not in FR.fb and VT were similar for SR and FR at all submaximal WRs, resulting in a similar VE. At exhaustion VE was similar but fb was higher (P < 0.05) and VT was lower (P < 0.05) in SR (fb, 51 +/- 10 breaths min-1; VT, 2590 +/- 590 ml) than in FR (fb, 42 +/- 8 breaths min-1; VT, 3050 +/- 470 ml). The time of expiration (TE) decreased with increasing WR, but there was no difference between SR and FR. The time of inspiration (TI) decreased at exercise intensities > or = VT; at exhaustion, TI was shorter (P < 0.05) during SR (0.512 +/- 0.097 s) than during FR (0.753 +/- 0.100 s). The TI to total breath duration (TI/TTot) and the inspiratory flow (VT/TI) were similar during SR and FR at all submaximal exercise intensities; at VO2,max, TI/TTot was lower (P < 0.05) and VT/TI was higher (P < 0.05) during SR (TI/TTot, 0.473 +/- 0.030; VT/TI, 5.092 +/- 0.377 l s-1) than during FR (TI/TTot, 0.567 +/- 0.050; VT/TI, 4.117 +/- 0.635 l s-1). These results suggest that during progressive exercise, breathing pattern and respiratory timing may be determined, at least at submaximal work rates, independently of alveolar and arterial PCO2.  (+info)

Vital capacity and tidal volume preoxygenation with a mouthpiece. (4/1287)

We have measured oxygen wash-in in 20 volunteers undergoing preoxygenation with a face mask, mouthpiece alone and a mouthpiece with a noseclip, in a crossover study. Tidal volume breathing and maximal deep breath techniques were studied with each type of equipment. When tidal volume breathing was used, the face mask and mouthpiece with noseclip were comparable, but the mouthpiece alone achieved a lower end-expiratory oxygen concentration than the two other methods after 3 min (P < 0.001 and P < 0.01), and after 5 min (P < 0.05 in each case). Conversely, during preoxygenation with vital capacity breaths, the mouthpiece and mouthpiece with noseclip were comparable, and both were more effective than the face mask (P < 0.001). In a second study, 20 patients who had undergone preoxygenation before induction of anaesthesia were asked later if they would have preferred the face mask or mouthpiece for this procedure. Significantly more patients (14 of 18 who expressed a preference) favoured the mouthpiece (P < 0.05; confidence limits 0.56-0.92).  (+info)

Compensatory alveolar growth normalizes gas-exchange function in immature dogs after pneumonectomy. (5/1287)

To determine the extent and sources of adaptive response in gas-exchange to major lung resection during somatic maturation, immature male foxhounds underwent right pneumonectomy (R-Pnx, n = 5) or right thoracotomy without pneumonectomy (Sham, n = 6) at 2 mo of age. One year after surgery, exercise capacity and pulmonary gas-exchange were determined during treadmill exercise. Lung diffusing capacity (DL) and cardiac output were measured by a rebreathing technique. In animals after R-Pnx, maximal O2 uptake, lung volume, arterial blood gases, and DL during exercise were completely normal. Postmortem morphometric analysis 18 mo after R-Pnx (n = 3) showed a vigorous compensatory increase in alveolar septal tissue volume involving all cellular compartments of the septum compared with the control lung; as a result, alveolar-capillary surface areas and DL estimated by morphometry were restored to normal. In both groups, estimates of DL by the morphometric method agreed closely with estimates obtained by the physiological method during peak exercise. These data show that extensive lung resection in immature dogs stimulates a vigorous compensatory growth of alveolar tissue in excess of maturational lung growth, resulting in complete normalization of aerobic capacity and gas-exchange function at maturity.  (+info)

We have previously found that individual anxiety levels influence respiratory rates in physical load and mental stress (Y. Masaoka and I. Homma. Int. J. Psychophysiol. 27: 153-159, 1997). On the basis of that study, in the present study we investigated the metabolic outputs during tests and analyzed the respiratory timing relationship between inspiration and expiration, taking into account individual anxiety levels. Disregarding anxiety levels, there were correlations between O2 consumption (VO2) and minute ventilation (VE) and between VO2 and tidal volume in the physical load test, but no correlations were observed in the noxious audio stimulation test. There was a volume-based increase in respiratory patterns in physical load; however, VE increased not only for the adjustment of metabolic needs but also for individual mental factors; anxiety participated in this increase. In the high-anxiety group, the VE-to-VO2 ratio, indicating ventilatory efficiency, increased in both tests. In the high-anxiety group, increases in respiratory rate contributed to a VE increase, and there were negative correlations between expiratory time and anxiety scores in both tests. In an awake state, the higher neural structure may dominantly affect the mechanism of respiratory rhythm generation. We focus on the relationship between expiratory time and anxiety and show diagrams of respiratory output, allowing for individual personality.  (+info)

Evaluation of pulmonary resistance and maximal expiratory flow measurements during exercise in humans. (7/1287)

To evaluate methods used to document changes in airway function during and after exercise, we studied nine subjects with exercise-induced asthma and five subjects without asthma. Airway function was assessed from measurements of pulmonary resistance (RL) and forced expiratory vital capacity maneuvers. In the asthmatic subjects, forced expiratory volume in 1 s (FEV1) fell 24 +/- 14% and RL increased 176 +/- 153% after exercise, whereas normal subjects experienced no change in airway function (RL -3 +/- 8% and FEV1 -4 +/- 5%). During exercise, there was a tendency for FEV1 to increase in the asthmatic subjects but not in the normal subjects. RL, however, showed a slight increase during exercise in both groups. Changes in lung volumes encountered during exercise were small and had no consistent effect on RL. The small increases in RL during exercise could be explained by the nonlinearity of the pressure-flow relationship and the increased tidal breathing flows associated with exercise. In the asthmatic subjects, a deep inspiration (DI) caused a small, significant, transient decrease in RL 15 min after exercise. There was no change in RL in response to DI during exercise in either asthmatic or nonasthmatic subjects. When percent changes in RL and FEV1 during and after exercise were compared, there was close agreement between the two measurements of change in airway function. In the groups of normal and mildly asthmatic subjects, we conclude that changes in lung volume and DIs had no influence on RL during exercise. Increases in tidal breathing flows had only minor influence on measurements of RL during exercise. Furthermore, changes in RL and in FEV1 produce equivalent indexes of the variations in airway function during and after exercise.  (+info)

Dyspnoea, peripheral airway involvement and respiratory muscle effort in patients with type I diabetes mellitus under good metabolic control. (8/1287)

Dyspnoea and pulmonary dysfunction have recently been associated with Type I (insulin-dependent) diabetes mellitus. The putative role of altered pulmonary mechanics and of performance of inspiratory muscles in inducing dyspnoea has not been yet assessed in Type I diabetes. To better focus on this topic we evaluated nine patients with Type I diabetes mellitus, aged 19 to 48 years with good and stable metabolic control, without a history of smoking and microvascular complications, alongside a group of 14 healthy control subjects. In each subject, pulmonary volumes, static and dynamic compliance, pleural pressure swings (Pplsw), maximal inspiratory pressures (Pplsn), Pplsw(%Pplsn), a measure of respiratory muscle effort, and tension-time index [TTI=TI/TTOTxPplsw(%Pplsn)] were measured (TI=inspiratory time;TTOT=total time of the respiratory cycle). All subjects were studied at baseline and during hypoxic rebreathing. Patients had normal pulmonary volumes. During hypoxic rebreathing, a normal change in respiratory muscle effort [DeltaPplsw(%Pplsn)/DeltaSaO2] and DeltaTTI/DeltaSaO2, and a lower change in tidal volume versus change in oxygen saturation [DeltaVT(% vital capacity)/DeltaSaO2], resulted in a higher ratio of respiratory effort to tidal volume [Pplsw(%Pplsn)/VT(% vital capacity)], a measure of neuroventilatory dissociation of the respiratory pump. Hypoxic dyspnoea, assessed by a modified Borg scale, showed a greater rate of rise (DeltaBorg/DeltaSaO2) and a greater increase for a given level of respiratory effort in patients. Moreover, neuroventilatory dissociation related to the expression of peripheral airway involvement, as assessed in terms of low dynamic compliance, and to concurrent change in dyspnoea sensation. Patients with Type I diabetes mellitus under good metabolic control and with normal lung volumes may have abnormal peripheral airway function. The latter is thought to be responsible for the association between dyspnoea sensation and neuroventilatory dissociation.  (+info)

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 ...
Impaired pulmonary gas exchange is a common complication of general anaesthesia. Periodic hyperinflation of the lungs and large tidal volume ventilation were the first preventive measures to be widely embraced, but their effectiveness in clinical practice has never been clearly established by controlled clinical studies. To assess their effects in high-risk patients we studied 24 adults having lower abdominal gynaecological surgery in the Trendelenburg (head down) position. Pulmonary oxygen exchange was determined during four steady-states: awake control (AC), after 30 min of conventional tidal volume (CVT, 7.5 or high tidal volume (HVT, 12.7 ventilation, introduced in random order, and five minutes after manual hyperinflations (HI) of the lungs. The patients lungs were ventilated with air/O2 by an Ohmeda volume-controlled ventilator via a circle system. The FIO2 was controlled at 0.5, and FETCO2 was controlled by adding dead space during HVT. Arterial blood gas analysis was ...
This study by the Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome Network supports the use of low tidal volumes in acute lung injury and ARDS, and is consistent with a previous trial.1 It differs from 3 previous negative trials2-4 by having a larger difference in tidal volumes between groups, and by having a more aggressive approach to correcting acidosis. This study provides important information about tidal volume size; however, further research is still needed to determine the importance of concurrent strategies such as positive end expiratory pressure (PEEP).. In this study, an equation based on sex and height was used to calculate a predicted body weight, which was then used to set tidal volumes. Obesity is a common problem; the use of measured body weight can inadvertently lead to the use of high tidal volume ventilation. Tidal volumes should be based on ideal versus measured body weight.. This information is relevant to nurses who care for mechanically ventilated patients. Through continuous ...

AU - Sznajder, J. I.. PY - 1990. Y1 - 1990. N2 - When normal lungs are ventilated with large tidal volumes (VT) and end-inspired pressures (Pei), surfactant is depleted and pulmonary edema develops. Both effects are diminished by positive end-expiratory pressure (PEEP). We reasoned that ventilation with large VT-low PEEP would similarly increase edema following acute lung injury. To test this hypothesis, we ventilated dogs 1 h after hydrochloric acid (HCl) induced pulmonary edema with a large VT (30 ml/kg) and low PEEP (3 cm H2O) (large VT-low PEEP) and compared their results with dogs ventilated with a smaller VT (15 ml/kg) and 12 cm H2O PEEP (small VT-high PEEP). The small VT was the smallest that maintained eucapnia in our preparation; the large VT was chosen to match Pei and end-spired lung volume. ...
OBJECTIVES: To compare tidal volumes delivered by one- vs two-handed compressions of a manual resuscitation bag and assess the effects of subject characteristics on those tidal volumes. DESIGN: Subjects (108 healthcare providers from a 500-bed teaching hospital) were assigned randomly to one of two procedures: one- followed by two-handed compression or two- followed by one-handed compression. A 1-liter resuscitation bag, lung performance analyzer and Wright spirometer were used to measure tidal volume. Data collection occurred in a simulated situation. RESULTS: There was a significant difference in tidal volume delivered by one-handed (mean = 694 mL, SD = 111) vs two-handed compressions (mean = 827 mL, SD = 113). Hand size, grip strength, height and weight were correlated with tidal volumes generated by one-handed and two-handed procedures. No other subject characteristics were correlated with tidal volumes. CONCLUSIONS: Tidal volumes delivered by healthcare providers using one- vs two-handed ...

Positive-pressure mechanical ventilation is essential in assisting patients with respiratory failure in the intensive care unit and facilitating oxygenation in the operating room. However, it was also recognized as a primary factor leading to hospital-acquired pulmonary dysfunction, in which pulmonary oxidative stress and lung inflammation had been known to play important roles. Cu/Zn superoxide dismutase (SOD) is an important antioxidant, and possesses anti-inflammatory capacity. In this study, we aimed to study the efficacy of Cu/Zn SOD, administered intravenously during high tidal volume (HTV) ventilation, to prevent impairment of lung function. Thirty-eight male Sprague-Dawley rats were divided into 3 groups: 5 h ventilation with (A) low tidal volume (LTV; 8 mL/kg; n = 10), (B) high tidal volume (HTV; 18 mL/kg; n = 14), or (C) HTV and intravenous treatment of Cu/Zn SOD at a dose of 1000 U/kg/h (HTV + SOD; n = 14). Lung function was evaluated both at baseline and after 5-h ventilation. Lung injury
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 ...
In patients with acute lung injury and the acute respiratory distress syndrome, mechanical ventilation with a lower tidal volume than is traditionally used results in decreased mortality and increases the number of days without ventilator use.
To determine the sensitivity of pulmonary resistance (RL) to changes in breathing frequency and tidal volume, we measured RL in intact anesthetized dogs over a range of breathing frequencies and tidal volumes centering around those encountered during quiet breathing. To investigate mechanisms responsible for changes in RL, the relative contribution of airway resistance (Raw) and tissue resistance (Rti) to RL at similar breathing frequencies and tidal volumes was studied in six excised, exsanguinated canine left lungs. Lung volume was sinusoidally varied, with tidal volumes of 10, 20, and 40% of vital capacity. Pressures were measured at three alveolar sites (PA) with alveolar capsules and at the airway opening (Pao). Measurements were made during oscillation at five frequencies between 5 and 45 min-1 at each tidal volume. Resistances were calculated by assuming a linear equation of motion and submitting lung volume, flow, Pao, and PA to a multiple linear regression. RL decreased with increasing
Neuromuscular blockade (NMB) is a therapy for acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). However, the mechanism by which NMB may improve outcome for ARDS patients remains unclear. We sought to determine whether NMB attenuates biomarkers of epithelial and endothelial lung injury and systemic inflammation in ARDS patients, and whether the association is dependent on tidal volume size and the initial degree of hypoxemia. We performed a secondary analysis of patients enrolled in the ARDS network low tidal volume ventilation (ARMA) study. Our primary predictor variable was the number of days receiving NMB between study enrollment and day 3. Our primary outcome variables were the change in concentration of biomarkers of epithelial injury (serum surfactant protein-D (SP-D)), endothelial injury (von Willebrand factor (VWF)), and systemic inflammation (interleukin (IL)-8). Multivariable regression analysis was used to compare the change in biomarker concentration controlling for multiple covariates. Patients

Mechanics of Riprap Movement in Tidal Flow. This analysis emphasizes the need to obtain data on the size and shape of riprap pieces as a function of movement, data which are surprisingly difficult to obtain from published studies. This analysis also indicates why riprap design for sites subject to reversible tidal flow must be somewhat more conservative for uniform flows of the same velocity.
Protective lung ventilation is the current standard of care for mechanical ventilation. It is synonymous with low tidal volume ventilation (4-8 mL/kg) and often includes permissive hypercapnia

Importance: Despite its efficacy, low tidal volume ventilation (LTVV) remains severely underutilized for patients with acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS).

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 ...

The use of very low V(T) combined with extracorporeal CO2 removal has the potential to further reduce VILI compared with a normal lung protective management. Whether this strategy will improve survival in ARDS patients remains to be determined (Clinical trials NCT 00538928).
End-tidal CO2 (ETCO2) is important for monitoring CPR quality as a surrogate for coronary perfusion pressure (CPP) and flow. We hypothesized that sufficient minute volume ventilation is not only needed to control CO2 buildup, but also for the exhaled CO2 to CPP relationship to remain valid.. To test our hypothesis, we measured minute volume ventilation together with CPP, arterial PCO2 (PaCO2), and ETCO2 in a pig model. Ventricular fibrillation was induced in 24 pigs, after which automated CPR (5 cm, 100 cpm) followed for 20 minutes. Animals were ventilated manually using a bag-mask-valve, either continuously at 10 min-1 (group 1, n=8) or 30:2 mode (group 2, n=16). Correlation coefficients between CPP and ETCO2 were calculated for each pig during the CPR interval.. Minute volume ventilation during CPR was 3.4 ± 1.0 L/min for group 1 and 2.2 ± 0.3 L/min for group 2 pigs. In group 1, PaCO2 changed little during CPR (41.1 ± 7.6 mmHg initially vs. 38.6 ± 16.5 mmHg at 20 minutes), indicating ...
We conduct laboratory experiments and direct numerical simulations on internal gravity waves generated by tidal flow over a model three-dimensional Gaussian mountain on the sea floor. When 2? < N (where ? is the tidal frequency and N is the buoyancy frequency), the flow generates second harmonic internal waves that propagate perpendicular to the tidal forcing direction. These unexpected harmonics are observed only when the maximum slope of the bottom topography is greater than the slope of internal wave propagation. The out-of-plane harmonics saturate at a higher tidal forcing amplitude than the normal in-tidal-forcing-plane harmonics, and could lead to increased wave breaking and mixing near rough topography in the ocean. ...

Inflammation in the lung occurs during ARDS as a consequence of cell injury. Depending on the ventilator strategy, the initial injury may be amplified, mediating pulmonary edema, alveolar disruption and release of cytokines [17]. Thus, a potential means of quantifying the protectiveness of a ventilation mode is the measurement of inflammatory cytokine and mRNA concentrations in BAL fluid and lung tissue, respectively.. In tracheal aspirates from oleic acid‐injured pigs, IL‐8 concentrations decreased after 5 h of variable controlled mechanical ventilation compared to conventional controlled mechanical ventilation but the investigated pro‐inflammatory cytokines, tumor necrosis factor‐α (TNF‐α) and IL‐6, were not measurable in serum or in tracheal aspirates. The concentration of the anti‐inflammatory cytokine, IL‐10, did not differ between groups in serum or tracheal aspirate samples. In HCl‐injured mice, IL‐1β levels, as measured by Western Blot Analysis, were significantly ...

The study by van der Gugten et al. [1] employed the minimally invasive single-breath occlusion technique to measure lung function; follow-up data included spirometry and information collected from general practitioners electronic patient files. Strengths of this approach are large sample size (549 infants) and availability of data describing symptom frequency. Our study included additional measurements of forced expiratory flows but respiratory resistance and wheeze frequency data were not available. Our asthma outcome was not directly comparable to that of van der Gugten et al. [1], as it was based upon a doctors diagnosis irrespective of primary care contacts, current symptoms or medications.. Impaired neonatal lung function, characterised by reduced values for the fraction of expiratory time to peak tidal expiratory flow to total expiratory time, has previously been found to be associated with childhood asthma [4]. Our approach is unique, however, in employing the raised volume ...
Purpose: To develop a quantitative decision making metric for automatically detecting irregular breathing using a large patient population that received phase-sorted 4DCT. Methods: This study employed two patient cohorts. Cohort#1 contained 256 patients who received a phasesorted 4DCT. Cohort#2 contained 86 patients who received three weekly phase-sorted 4DCT scans. A previously published technique used a single abdominal surrogate to calculate the ratio of extreme inhalation tidal volume to normal inhalation tidal volume, referred to as the κ metric. Since a single surrogate is standard for phase-sorted 4DCT in radiation oncology clinical practice, tidal volume was not quantified. Without tidal volume, the absolute κ metric could not be determined, so a relative κ (κrel) metric was defined based on the measured surrogate amplitude instead of tidal volume. Receiver operator characteristic (ROC) curves were used to quantitatively determine the optimal cutoff value (jk) and efficiency cutoff ...
NRCLSE, Seattle, WA 98115 and Rush Medical College, Chicago, IL 60612.. Over half of undergraduate students entering physiology hold the misconception that when ventilation increases during exercise, tidal volume either decreases or remains unchanged (Michael, Adv. Physiol. Educ., 19: S90-S98, 1998). We examined how three different protocols directing students in a laboratory exercise impacted conceptual change. Students (404 undergraduates at 4 institutions) were tested to see if they held the misconception before and after performing an experiment in which they measured the effect of exercise on tidal volume and frequency. The first group followed a traditional written observe and record protocol. Students in the second group were given a written protocol asking them to complete a prediction table before running the experiment. Students in the third group were given the written prediction protocol, but were also required to tell the instructor their predictions before running the ...
Guesstimates and assumptions have no place in an emergency situation. An accurate low tidal volume calculation can help medical professionals improve their treatment of acute respiratory issues, whilst an incorrect measure can have the opposite effect - for example, lung damage, or possibly even threatening the patients life.. Dr Pickworth contacted Spentex and asked for our help. The original method he and his medical colleagues employed to calculate low tidal volume involved cumbersome charts crammed full with numeric tables, that needed to be consulted once the patients gender and height had been determined (imagine capturing the latter if the patient in question is writhing in pain!). Dr Pickworth, and his colleague Dr Rivers, were in desperate need of a better process.. An accurate measure was required - a product that was easier to use by design, that provided the right calculation in double-quick time, and which wouldnt prove a financial drain on already-shrinking public funds. Which ...
Mechanically, breath design is usually either flow/volume-targeted or pressure-targeted. Both approaches can effectively provide lung-protective ventilation, but they prioritize different ventilation parameters, so their responses to changing respiratory-system mechanics and patient effort are different. These different response behaviors have advantages and disadvantages that can be important in specific circumstances. Flow/volume targeting guarantees a set minute ventilation but sometimes may be difficult to synchronize with patient effort, and it will not limit inspiratory pressure. In contrast, pressure targeting, with its variable flow, may be easier to synchronize and will limit inspiratory pressure, but it provides no control over delivered volume. Skilled clinicians can maximize benefits and minimize problems with either flow/volume targeting or pressure targeting. Indeed, as is often the case in managing complex life-support devices, it is operator expertise rather than the device ...

Also, variable ventilation is able to recruit lungs. The present study will investigate whether variable as compared to non-variable ventilation improves post-operative lung function and reduces systemic inflammation in patients submitted to open abdominal surgery ...

N2 - Objective: When ventilating an unintubated patient in cardiac or respiratory arrest, smaller tidal volumes of 500 ml instead of 800-1200 ml may be beneficial to decrease peak airway pressure, and to minimise stomach inflation. The purpose was to determine the effects of small (~500 ml) versus large (~1000 ml) tidal volumes given with paediatric versus adult self-inflatable bags and ...
In patients presenting with the acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), mechanical ventilation with low tidal volume (6 ml/kg predicted body weight) is the current gold standard for supportive care. However, despite a relative low tidal volume, approximatively one third of patients will experienced tidal hyperinflation, a phenomenon known to induce pulmonary and systemic inflammatory response. A further reduction of the tidal volume to 4 ml/kg (PBW) will prevent pulmonary area from tidal hyperinflation. As a result, hypercarbia and respiratory acidosis are commonly observed with such very low tidal ventilation. Extra corporeal CO2 removal is one of a mean to normalize arterial CO2 tension.. Patients with ARDS also frequently develop acute renal failure which may required Renal Replacement Therapy. Some data suggests that starting early the RRT may favor outcome.. The investigators hypothesized that a strategy combining ECCOR and RRT early in the course of patients presenting ARDS and acute ...
Objectives To establish whether aminophylline, administered at usual doses for rodents in pharmacological studies, induces brain injury in systemic hypoxaemia in guinea-pigs.. Methods A hypoxaemia (partial oxygen tension of arterial blood (PaO2) = 40-60 mmHg) model was developed by low tidal volume mechanical ventilation in guinea-pigs.. Key findings Under hypoxic conditions, aminophylline significantly increased the concentration of brain-specific creatine kinase in the serum in a dose- and time-dependent manner. A reduced number of hippocampal neuronal cells in the CA1 region, an increase in the concentration of neuron-specific enolase (NSE) in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), an increase in lipid hydroperoxides and a decrease in the ratio of glutathione to glutathione disulfide in the brain tissues were also observed. These effects were not observed when aminophylline at the same doses was administered under normoxic conditions (PaO2 = 80-100 mmHg). There was no difference in either serum or CSF ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Hemodynamic benefit of positive end-expiratory pressure during acute descending aortic occlusion. AU - Johnston, William E.. AU - Conroy, Brendan P.. AU - Miller, Gregory S.. AU - Lin, Cheng Y.. AU - Deyo, Donald J.. PY - 2002/10/1. Y1 - 2002/10/1. N2 - Background: Acute aortic occlusion in vascular surgery patients abruptly increases arterial resistance and blood pressure, which, in turn, makes subsequent volume expansion during cross-clamp application difficult. The use of vasodilatory drugs or volatile anesthetic agents to attenuate this response may have persistent detrimental effects after clamp removal. Another potential therapy that produces rapid effects on myocardial loading conditions is positive end-expiratory pressure (PEEP). In a porcine model of acute aortic clamping, the hemodynamic consequences of 15 cm H2O PEEP with and without plasma volume expansion were studied. Methods: Forty anesthetized pigs underwent 30-min occlusion of the abdominal aorta 1 cm above the ...

Results 1456 (74%) were only ventilated with T-piece resuscitator and 506 (26%) with the self-inflating bag. The characteristics of those ventilated with T-Piece resuscitator versus self-inflating bag were birth weight 969 ± 277 vs 941 ± 279 g, gestational age 28.2±2.5 vs 27.8±2.7 weeks and survival to hospital discharge without major morbidities 47% vs 35%. Logistic regression adjusted for maternal characteristics, obstetric and neonatal morbidities showed that the T-piece resuscitator increased the chance of survival to hospital discharge without major morbidities (OR=1.38; 95% CI 1.06 to 1.80; Hosmer-Lemeshow goodness of fit: 0.695). ...
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 ...
In a volume-targeted mode (e.g., volume control; Figure 29B-1), the ventilator provides an inspiratory flow over time to target a set volume. To avoid ventilator-induced injury, multiple trials have shown that limiting the tidal volume improves patient outcomes compared to using the larger volumes more common in the past (often ≥10 mL/kg to start).3-6 One approach is to start volume-targeted ventilation at 6 mL/kg ideal body weight for patients with or at risk for acute respiratory distress syndrome and 6 to 8 mL/kg ideal body weight for other patients. The definition of acute respiratory distress syndrome is provided in Table 29B-1. Those at risk for acute respiratory distress syndrome have pneumonia, sepsis, trauma, pancreatitis, or any shock state.7 To choose ventilation settings, calculate ideal body weight using the patients height, an important caveat in obese patients in whom harm is risked if tidal volumes choice is based on actual body weight. ...
Editors Synopsis: Motion in the Ocean. The Earths climate is strongly affected by the ways in which energy moves into, out of, and around the oceans. One important component of energy flow is the conversion of tidal motionchanges in sea levels caused by gravitational effects of the Mooninto internal ocean waves. Such waves directly influence mixing of water from regions with different temperature and salinity, as well as overall circulation. In a paper in Physical Review Letters, Likun Zhang and Harry Swinney at the University of Texas at Austin, present numerical simulations of how tidal flow over seafloor ridges is transformed into wave energy. They find that only the topmost parts of seafloor topography contribute to wave generation, in effect creating a virtual seafloor.? It is only above it that tidal energy can be converted to wave energy.. The efficiency of tidal-to-wave energy conversion is difficult to calculate owing to the complex structure of the seafloor: When sea levels rise ...
The pattern of breathing refers to the respiratory rate and rhythm, the depth of breathing or tidal volume, and the relative amount of time spent in inspiration and expiration. Normal values are a rate of 12-14 breaths per minute, tidal volumes of 5 mL/kg, and a ratio of inspiratory to expiratory time of approximately 2:3. Tachypnea is an increased rate of breathing and is commonly associated with a decrease in tidal volume. Respiratory rhythm is normally regular, with a sigh (1.5-2 times normal tidal volume) every 90 breaths or so to prevent collapse of alveoli and atelectasis. Alterations in the rhythm of breathing include rapid, shallow breathing, seen in restrictive lung disease and as a precursor to respiratory failure; Kussmaul breathing, rapid large-volume breathing indicating intense stimulation of the respiratory center, seen in metabolic acidosis; and Cheyne-Stokes respiration, a rhythmic waxing and waning of both rate and tidal volumes that includes regular periods of apnea. This last ...
Tidal volume (symbol VT or TV) is the lung volume representing the normal volume of air displaced between [clarification needed] normal inhalation and exhalation when extra effort is not applied. In a healthy, young human adult, tidal volume is approximately 500 mL per inspiration or 7 mL/kg of body
Positive end-expiratory pressure (PEEP) has been demonstrated to improve systemic arterial oxygenation in respiratory distress secondary to interstitially edematous lung. Clinical improvements, however, may be limited by the adverse circulatory effects of PEEP impairing venous return and reducing cardiac output. In an effort to eliminate this variable experimentally, the effects of graded levels of PEEP in the isolated canine lung made edematous by venous constriction were studied. These observations suggested that the increased mean inflation pressures of PEEP do not facilitate mobilization of interstitial fluid nor improve lung mechanics and that the observed improvement in gas exchange probably relateds to inflation of previously collapsed alveoli. In clinical use, however, PEEP is applied at one level for a prolonged period of time. Therefore, to delineate the prolonged effects of static PEEP, isolated canine lungs made edematous by venous constriction were treated with various levels of PEEP
The purpose of the present investigation was to assess the effect of large tidal volumes and mean lung volumes on the viscoelastic properties of the respiratory system in normal humans; and to verify if in this case the results could be satisfactorily described by a simple linear viscoelastic model of the respiratory system. Twenty-eight subjects (7 females), aged 14-28 yrs, were studied before orthopaedic surgery on the lower limbs. None were obese, or had clinical evidence of cardiopulmonary disease. The interrupter conductance and the viscoelastic constants of the respiratory system were assessed using the rapid end-inspiratory airway occlusion method during mechanical ventilation with tidal volumes up to 3 L and applied end-expiratory pressures up to 23 cmH2O. It was found that the interrupter conductance increased linearly with lung volume over a larger range than used previously; and the viscoelastic resistance and time constant did not change over the entire range of tidal volumes and ...
One of the most challenging problems in intensive care is still the process of discontinuing mechanical ventilation, called weaning process. Both an unnecessary delay in the discontinuation process and a weaning trial that is undertaken too early are undesirable. In this study, we analyzed respiratory pattern variability using the respiratory volume signal of patients submitted to two different levels of pressure support ventilation (PSV), prior to withdrawal of the mechanical ventilation. In order to characterize the respiratory pattern, we analyzed the following time series: inspiratory time, expiratory time, breath duration, tidal volume, fractional inspiratory time, mean inspiratory flow and rapid shallow breathing. Several autoregressive modeling techniques were considered: autoregressive models (AR), autoregressive moving average models (ARMA), and autoregressive models with exogenous input (ARX). The following classification methods were used: logistic regression (LR), linear discriminant ...

We examined the effect of ventilation strategy on lung inflammatory mediators in the presence and absence of a preexisting inflammatory stimulus. 55 Sprague-Dawley rats were randomized to either intravenous saline or lipopolysaccharide (LPS). After 50 min of spontaneous respiration, the lungs were excised and randomized to 2 h of ventilation with one of four strategies: (a) control (C), tidal volume (Vt) = 7 cc/kg, positive end expiratory pressure (PEEP) = 3 cm H2O; (b) moderate volume, high PEEP (MVHP), Vt = 15 cc/kg; PEEP = 10 cm H2O; (c) moderate volume, zero PEEP (MVZP), Vt = 15 cc/kg, PEEP = 0; or (d) high volume, zero PEEP (HVZP), Vt = 40 cc/kg, PEEP = 0. Ventilation with zero PEEP (MVZP, HVZP) resulted in significant reductions in lung compliance. Lung lavage levels of TNFalpha, IL-1beta, IL-6, IL-10, MIP-2, and IFNgamma were measured by ELISA. Zero PEEP in combination with high volume ventilation (HVZP) had a synergistic effect on cytokine levels (e.g., 56-fold increase of TNFalpha ...
1. Low level exercise is frequently used to assess cardiac and pulmonary function. This study examines the differences in both metabolic and respiratory patterns between the sitting and supine position.. 2. Six normal male subjects were studied in both positions during four levels of exercise (12.5, 25, 37.5 and 50 W). Oxygen consumption (Vo2), carbon dioxide production (Vco2) and minute ventilation (Ve2) were greater when sitting as were the ventilatory equivalents to O2 (Ve2/ Vo2) and CO2 (Ve2/ Vco2).. 3. Respiration was compared at equivalent workloads; the greater minute ventilation observed during sitting was due to greater tidal volumes (Vt) and mean inspiratory flows (Vt/Vi,). Expiratory time (Te) was longer and inspiratory duration shorter under most conditions when sitting.. 4. When breathing patterns were compared at similar degrees of minute ventilation, Vt, Te and Vt/Ti were greater when sitting, while respiratory frequency (fr) was slower. ...
The 2019 standard also provides additional guidance on the quality assessment for slow VC maneuvers. Specifically, the stability of the preceding tidal breathing is defined as having at least three tidal breaths, with end-expiratory lung volume within 15% of the tidal volume. For some patients this stable tidal breathing is hard to achieve. In their case the test should be allowed to go ahead after 10 tidal breaths, but the parameter IC should not be reported, as it is no longer reliable. ...
Stress is defined as the force applied to a material, while strain is the consequent deformation. In the whole lung, stress can be roughly approximated by the transpulmonary pressure, whereas the approximation of the average strain is the change in volume relative to the lung resting volume. The same tidal volume per kilogram may result in completely different strain according to the size of the baby lung (the V0 of the previous equation). For example, a 70-kg man with ARDS may have, according to the severity of the lung injury, a residual baby lung equal to 60%, 40%, or 20% of his normal lung size. If the ventilator is set to deliver 10 mL/kg, the actual delivered tidal volume would generate an alveolar strain, which would result from the application, in normal lung, of a tidal volume equal to 17 mL/kg, 25 mL/kg, and 50 mL/kg, values associated with a significant lung injury in laboratory studies. Recently we attempted to quantify the relationship between stress-strain and VILI in healthy ...
Within the study, the authors performed experiments using a one-hit model of VILI, i.e., ventilating healthy mice with a series of increasing tidal volumes/plateau pressures (pplat). Having done an extraordinary job in maintaining these fragile animals stably for 7 h, they identified a pplat (between 24 and 27 cm H2O) below which there was only mild lung inflammation with no signs of physiologic injury, while above this inflammation was dramatically increased and animals eventually developed catastrophic lung failure. Importantly, tidal volumes corresponding to this threshold pressure are much higher than those established as injurious in human ARDS patients (i.e., 10 to 15 ml/kg). This finding, consistent with a previous report,3 highlights a crucial issue often overlooked in preclinical studies: animal models are by their very nature extreme constructs designed to mimic certain aspects of human pathophysiologies within logistically attainable time frames. Hence, our focus must remain on what ...

We prospectively evaluated ICU patients recovering from acute respiratory failure that could be comfortably ventilated with pressure support of 15 cmH2O, PEEP of 5 cmH2O and FIO2 of 40%. The patients were submitted to two different pressure slopes of pressure support with 150 and 300 ms delays. The respiratory rate (RR), expiratory tidal volume (VTe), minute ventilation (MV), VCO2, VTCO2, ETCO2, SpO2, mean arterial pressure (MAP) and heart rate (HR) were measured in these different conditions. ...

Without putting in all the confidence intervals I can tell you that the Next Step was the tightest. What you notice immediately (or at least I did) was that no matter what the compliance, the self inflating bag delivers quite an excessive volume even in experienced hands regardless of compliance. At low compliance the t-piece resuscitators do an admirable job as 5-6 ml/kg of delivered Vt is reasonable but as compliance improves the volumes increase substantially. It is worth pointing out that at low compliance the Next Step was unable to deliver the prescribed Vt but knowing that if you had a baby who wasnt responding to ventilation I would imagine you would then try a setting of 6 ml/kg to compensate much like you would increase the pressure on a typical device. How might these devices do in a 29 week infant for example with better compliance than say a 24 week infant? You cant help but wonder how many babies are given minutes of excessive Vt after birth during PPV with the traditional ...
We have designed a computerized system providing closed-loop control of the level of pressure support ventilation (PSV). The system sets itself at the lowest level of PSV that maintains respiratory rate (RR), tidal volume (VT), and end-tidal CO(2) pressure (PET(CO(2))) within predetermined ranges defining acceptable ventilation (i.e., 12 < RR < 28 cycles/min, VT > 300 ml [> 250 if weight < 55 kg], and PET(CO(2)) < 55 mm Hg [< 65 mm Hg if chronic CO(2) retention]). Ten patients received computer-controlled (automatic) PSV and physician-controlled (standard) PSV, in random order, during 24 h for each mode. An estimation of occlusion pressure (P(0.1)) was recorded continuously. The average time spent with acceptable ventilation as previously defined was 66 +/- 24% of the total ventilation time with standard PSV versus 93 +/- 8% with automatic PSV (p < 0.05), whereas the level of PSV was similar during the two periods (17 +/- 4 cm H(2)O versus 19 +/- 6 cm H(2)O). The time spent with an estimated ...

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.
TY - GEN. T1 - Analysing the Performance of a Real-Time Healthcare 4.0 System using Shared Frailty Time to Event Models. AU - Marshall, A.H.. AU - Novakovic, Aleksandar. PY - 2019/8/5. Y1 - 2019/8/5. N2 - This paper introduces the real-time Healthcare 4.0 system, the VILIAlert system and a new approach that we propose for the robust assessment of its performance. The VILIAlert system alerts clinicians when a patients tidal volume value rises above the clinically accepted level of 8 ml/kg as beyond this point (, 8 ml/kg), a patient is considered high risk of permanent damage to their lungs. In order to ensure success with the VILIAlert system, the ideal scenario is to ensure that as soon as patients in the Intensive Care Unit experience tidal volume values beyond the 8 ml/kg level, a clinical intervention can be carried out so to minimise the risk of patients ever having permanent damage. The approach has been implemented in the Intensive Care Unit at the Royal Victoria Hospital Belfast, ...

A respiration pattern of a number of respiration cycles is detected and breath intervals (BI) and tidal volume (TVOL) measurements of each of the respiration cycles are respectively determined. An unevenly sampled instantaneous minute ventilation (iMV) signal is produced using the BI and TVOL measurements, and an evenly sampled iMV signal (resampled iMV signal) is produced using the unevenly sampled iMV signal. Disordered breathing is detected based on a comparison between a baseline threshold and the resampled iMV signal.
The second question is actually far more interesting and forms the basis of a famous physiology experiment. Rebreathing air results in an increase in both resp rate and tidal volume in humans, both these things increase minute ventilation (which is a product of the two things, TV x RR) There is also a rebreathing experiment where soda lime is used to absorb the CO2 from the rebreathed air. However it is very dangerous as it can result in loss of consciousness as humans respond more to CO2 drive and if the CO2 in the inhaled air is zero, this can result in not enough oxygenated haemoglobin in the blood ...
Unless I am mistaken, there isnt a volume regulated bag-mask device that we can turn to for control of delivered tidal volume. Given that all the babies were treated the same with the same pressures I have to believe that the babies with stiffer lungs responded less in terms of lung expansion so in essence the worse the baby, the better they did in the long run at least from the IVH standpoint. The babies with the more compliant lungs may have suffered from being too good. Getting a good seal and providing good breathes with a BVM takes a lot of skill and practice. This is why the t-piece resuscitator grew in popularity so quickly. If you can turn a couple of dials and place it over the mouth and nose of a baby you can ventilate a newborn. The challenge though is that there is no feedback. How much volume are you giving when you start with the same settings for everyone? What may seem easy is actually quite complicated in terms of knowing what we are truly delivering to the patient. I would ...
5 cm water for each minute). Thats why swiftly altering, acute respiratory conditions will not be suited for AVAPS because the ventilator adjustments might not be timely enough to fulfill the individuals specifications. Commonly, the strain guidance needed to create the target volume during bedside titration is used to detect the negligible stress Along with the set nominal strain (min P), normally 2-three cm h2o decreased to allow versatility for adjustment inside the AVAPS mode. The maximal stress (max P) is often set within the 20-25 cm water vary as larger pressures arent well tolerated. The min P is not less than eight cm drinking water and frequently higher. Further parameters which can be Element of AVAPS setting will be the goal tidal volume, respiratory charge, EPAP, and inspiratory time ...

so they are often much older than more massive blue giants.[6] The BHB takes its name from the prominent horizontal grouping of stars seen on colour-magnitude diagrams for older clusters, where core helium burning stars of the same age are found at a variety of temperatures with roughly the same luminosity. These stars also evolve through the core helium burning stage at constant luminosity, first increasing in temperature then decreasing again as they move toward the AGB. However, at the blue end of the horizontal branch, it forms a "blue tail" of stars with lower luminosity, and occasionally a "blue hook" of even hotter stars.[7] There are other highly evolved hot stars not generally referred to as blue giants: Wolf-Rayet stars, highly luminous and distinguished by their extreme temperatures and prominent helium and nitrogen emission lines; post-AGB stars forming planetary nebulae, similar to Wolf-Rayet stars but smaller and less massive; blue stragglers, uncommon luminous blue stars observed ...

  • Ventilator-induced lung injury such as ALI/ARDS can be caused by ventilation with very large tidal volumes in normal lungs, as well as ventilation with moderate or small volumes in previously injured lungs, and research shows that the incidence of ALI increases with higher tidal volume settings in nonneurologically-impaired patients. (
  • There is a possibility that limiting tidal volume to patients with ARDS may be beneficial. (
  • It has been shown in a two-center study that high positive end-expiratory pressure (PEEP) and low tidal volume (LTV) improved outcome in ARDS. (
  • We similarly hypothesized that a ventilatory strategy based on PEEP above the lower inflection point of the pressure volume curve of the respiratory system (Pflex) set on day 1 with a low tidal volume would result in improved outcome in patients with severe and persistent acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). (
  • A mechanical ventilation strategy with a PEEP level set on day 1 above Pflex and a low tidal volume compared with a strategy with a higher tidal volume and relatively low PEEP has a beneficial impact on outcome in patients with severe and persistent ARDS. (
  • For patients without acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), target the recommended tidal volume of 6-8 mL/kg predicted body weight (PBW). (
  • Use of low tidal volume ventilation (6 mL/kg) is well-established for ARDS (1), but there is less evidence for its use in non-ARDS respiratory failure. (
  • The systematic analysis of 20 studies (2822 patients) by Serpa Neto and colleagues found lower incidences of ARDS, pulmonary infection, atelectasis, and mortality when lower tidal volumes were used in patients without ARDS. (
  • We investigated the effects of a low tidal volume (V(T)) strategy (V(T) ≈ 3 ml/kg/predicted body weight [PBW]) using pumpless extracorporeal lung assist in established ARDS. (
  • Hough, Catherine L. 2018-04-01 00:00:00 PurposeLow tidal volume ventilation (LTVV) reduces mortality in acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) patients. (
  • QUESTION: In patients with acute lung injury or the acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), does mechanical ventilation with lower tidal volumes improve clinical outcomes? (
  • This study by the Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome Network supports the use of low tidal volumes in acute lung injury and ARDS, and is consistent with a previous trial. (
  • Limiting tidal volume (V T ) in patients with ARDS may not be achieved once patient-triggered breaths occur. (
  • Pressure support with guaranteed volume could be tested in patients with ARDS. (
