Changes in respiratory timing induced by hypercapnia in maturing rats. (1/494)

Premature infants respond to hypercapnia by an attenuated ventilatory response that is characterized by a decrease in respiratory frequency. We hypothesized that this impaired hypercapnic ventilatory response is of central origin and is mediated via gamma-aminobutyric acid-ergic (GABAergic) pathways. We therefore studied two groups of maturing Sprague-Dawley rats: unrestrained rats in a whole body plethysmograph at four postnatal ages (5, 16-17, 22-23, and 41-42 days); and ventilated, decerebrate, vagotomized, paralyzed rats in which phrenic nerve responses to hypercapnia were measured at 4-6 and 37-39 days of age. In the unrestrained group, the increase in minute ventilation induced by hypercapnia was significantly lower at 5 days vs. beyond 16 days. Although there was an increase in tidal volume at all ages, frequency decreased significantly from baseline at 5 days, whereas it increased significantly at 16-17, 22-23, and 41-42 days. The decrease in frequency at 5 days of age was mainly due to a significant prolongation in expiratory duration (TE). In the ventilated group, hypercapnia also caused prolongation in TE at 4-6 days but not at 37-39 days of age. Intravenous administration of bicuculline (GABA(A)-receptor blocker) abolished the prolongation of TE in response to hypercapnia in the newborn rats. We conclude that newborn rat pups exhibit a characteristic ventilatory response to CO(2) expressed as a centrally mediated prolongation of TE that appears to be mediated by GABAergic mechanisms.  (+info)

Intratracheal anti-tumor necrosis factor-alpha antibody attenuates ventilator-induced lung injury in rabbits. (2/494)

To evaluate the role of tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-alpha in the pathogenesis of ventilator-induced lung injury, we 1) measured TNF-alpha production in the lung caused by conventional mechanical ventilation (CMV) and 2) evaluated the protective effect of anti-TNF-alpha antibody (Ab) in saline-lavaged rabbit lungs. After they received saline lung lavage, rabbits were intratracheally instilled with 1 mg/kg of polyclonal anti-TNF-alpha Ab in the high-dose group (n = 6), 0.2 mg/kg of anti-TNF-alpha Ab in the low-dose group (n = 6), serum IgG fraction in the Ab control group (n = 6), and saline in the saline control group (n = 7). Animals then underwent CMV for 4 h. Levels of TNF-alpha in lung lavage fluid were significantly higher after CMV than before in both control groups. Pretreatment with intratracheal instillation of high and low doses of anti-TNF-alpha Ab improved oxygenation and respiratory compliance, reduced the infiltration of leukocytes, and ameliorated pathological findings. CMV led to TNF-alpha production in the lungs, and intratracheal instillation of anti-TNF-alpha Ab attenuated CMV-induced lung injury in this model.  (+info)

A mathematical model was analyzed to obtain a quantitative and testable representation of the long-standing hypothesis that the respiratory muscles drive the chest wall along the trajectory for which the work of breathing is minimal. The respiratory system was modeled as a linear elastic system that can be expanded either by pressure applied at the airway opening (passive inflation) or by active forces in respiratory muscles (active inflation). The work of active expansion was calculated, and the distribution of muscle forces that produces a given lung expansion with minimal work was computed. The calculated expression for muscle force is complicated, but the corresponding kinematics of muscle shortening is simple: active inspiratory muscles shorten more during active inflation than during passive inflation, and the ratio of active to passive shortening is the same for all active muscles. In addition, the ratio of the minimal work done by respiratory muscles during active inflation to work required for passive inflation is the same as the ratio of active to passive muscle shortening. The minimal-work hypothesis was tested by measurement of the passive and active shortening of the internal intercostal muscles in the parasternal region of two interspaces in five supine anesthetized dogs. Fractional changes in muscle length were measured by sonomicrometry during passive inflation, during quiet breathing, and during forceful inspiratory efforts against a closed airway. Active muscle shortening during quiet breathing was, on average, 70% greater than passive shortening, but it was only weakly correlated with passive shortening. Active shortening inferred from the data for more forceful inspiratory efforts was approximately 40% greater than passive shortening and was highly correlated with passive shortening. These data support the hypothesis that, during forceful inspiratory efforts, muscle activation is coordinated so as to expand the chest wall with minimal work.  (+info)

Ratio of active to passive muscle shortening in the canine diaphragm. (4/494)

Active and passive shortening of muscle bundles in the canine diaphragm were measured with the objective of testing a consequence of the minimal-work hypothesis: namely, that the ratio of active to passive shortening is the same for all active muscles. Lengths of six muscle bundles in the costal diaphragm and two muscle bundles in the crural diaphragm of each of four bred-for-research beagle dogs were measured by the radiopaque marker technique during the following maneuvers: a passive deflation maneuver from total lung capacity to functional residual capacity, quiet breathing, and forceful inspiratory efforts against an occluded airway at different lung volumes. Shortening per liter increase in lung volume was, on average, 70% greater during quiet breathing than during passive inflation in the prone posture and 40% greater in the supine posture. For the prone posture, the ratio of active to passive shortening was larger in the ventral and midcostal diaphragm than at the dorsal end of the costal diaphragm. For both postures, active shortening during quiet breathing was poorly correlated with passive shortening. However, shortening during forceful inspiratory efforts was highly correlated with passive shortening. The average ratios of active to passive shortening were 1.23 +/- 0.02 and 1.32 +/- 0.03 for the prone and supine postures, respectively. These data, taken together with the data reported in the companion paper (T. A. Wilson, M. Angelillo, A. Legrand, and A. De Troyer, J. Appl. Physiol. 87: 554-560, 1999), support the hypothesis that, during forceful inspiratory efforts, the inspiratory muscles drive the chest wall along the minimal-work trajectory.  (+info)

Ventilatory instability during sleep onset in individuals with high peripheral chemosensitivity. (5/494)

Previous work has shown that the magnitude of state-related ventilatory fluctuations is amplified over the sleep-onset period and that this amplification is partly due to peripheral chemoreceptor activity, because it is reduced by hyperoxia (J. Dunai, M. Wilkinson, and J. Trinder. J. Appl. Physiol. 81: 2235-2243, 1996). These data also indicated considerable intersubject variability in the magnitude of amplification. A possible source of this variability is individual differences in peripheral chemoreceptor drive (PCD). We tested this hypothesis by measuring state-related ventilatory fluctuations throughout sleep onset under normoxic and hyperoxic conditions in subjects with high and low PCD. Results demonstrated that high-PCD subjects experienced significantly greater amplification of state-related ventilatory fluctuations than did low-PCD subjects. In addition, hyperoxia significantly reduced the amplification effect in high-PCD subjects but had little effect in low-PCD subjects. These results indicate that individuals with high PCD are likely to experience greater sleep-related ventilatory instability and suggest that peripheral chemoreceptor activity can contribute to sleep-disordered breathing.  (+info)

Reduced ventilator pressure and improved P/F ratio during percutaneous arteriovenous carbon dioxide removal for severe respiratory failure. (6/494)

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the effect of percutaneous arteriovenous carbon dioxide removal (AVCO2R) on ventilator pressures and P/F ratio in a clinically relevant large-animal model of severe respiratory failure. SUMMARY BACKGROUND DATA: AVCO2R was developed as a simple arteriovenous shunt with a commercially available low-resistance gas exchange device of sufficient surface area for near-total CO2 removal. With an AV shunt 10% to 15% of cardiac output, AVCO2R allows a reduction in ventilator airway pressures without hypercapnia or the complex circuitry and monitoring required for conventional ECMO. METHODS: AVCO2R was applied to a new, clinically relevant large-animal model of severe respiratory failure created by smoke inhalation and cutaneous flame bum injury. Adult sheep (n = 9, 38+/-6 kg) received a 40% total body surface area, third-deinsufflation. After injury, all animals were placed on volume-controlled mechanical ventilation to achieve PaO2 > 60 mmHg and PacO2 < 40 mmHg. Animals were placed on AVCO2R within 40 to 48 hours of injury when the PaO2/FiO2 was <200. Animals underwent cannulation of the carotid artery and jugular vein with percutaneous 10F arterial and 14F venous cannulas. Shunt flow was continuously monitored using an ultrasonic flow probe and calculated as a percentage of cardiac output. RESULTS: AVCO2R flows of 800 to 900 ml/min (11% to 13% cardiac output) achieved 77 to 104 ml/min of CO2 removal (95% to 97% total CO2 production) while maintaining normocapnia. Significant reductions in ventilator settings were tidal volume, 421.3+/-39.8 to 270.0+/-6.3 ml; peak inspiratory pressure, 24.8+/-2.4 to 13.7+/-0.7 cm H2O; minute ventilation, 12.7+/-1.4 to 6.2+/-0.8 L/min; respiratory rate, 25.4+/-1.3 to 18.4+/-1.8 breaths/min; and FiO2, 0.88+/-0.1 to 0.39+/-0.1. The P/F ratio increased from 151.5+/-40.0 at baseline to 320.0+/-17.8 after 72 hours. CONCLUSIONS: Percutaneous AVCO2R allows near-total CO2 removal and significant reductions in ventilator pressures with improvement in the P/F ratio.  (+info)

Clinical diagnosis of ventilator associated pneumonia revisited: comparative validation using immediate post-mortem lung biopsies. (7/494)

BACKGROUND: A study was undertaken to assess the diagnostic value of different clinical criteria and the impact of microbiological testing on the accuracy of clinical diagnosis of suspected ventilator associated pneumonia (VAP). METHODS: Twenty five deceased mechanically ventilated patients were studied prospectively. Immediately after death, multiple bilateral lung biopsy specimens (16 specimens/patient) were obtained for histological examination and quantitative lung cultures. The presence of both histological pneumonia and positive lung cultures was used as a reference test. RESULTS: The presence of infiltrates on the chest radiograph and two of three clinical criteria (leucocytosis, purulent secretions, fever) had a sensitivity of 69% and a specificity of 75%; the corresponding numbers for the clinical pulmonary infection score (CPIS) were 77% and 42%. Non-invasive as well as invasive sampling techniques had comparable values. The combination of all techniques achieved a sensitivity of 85% and a specificity of 50%, and these values remained virtually unchanged despite the presence of previous treatment with antibiotics. When microbiological results were added to clinical criteria, adequate diagnoses originating from microbiological results which might have corrected false positive and false negative clinical judgements (n = 5) were countered by a similar proportion of inadequate diagnoses (n = 6). CONCLUSIONS: Clinical criteria had reasonable diagnostic values. CPIS was not superior to conventional clinical criteria. Non-invasive and invasive sampling techniques had diagnostic values comparable to clinical criteria. An algorithm guiding antibiotic treatment exclusively by microbiological results does not increase the overall diagnostic accuracy and carries the risk of undertreatment.  (+info)

In vitro investigations of jet-pulses for the measurement of respiratory impedance in newborns. (8/494)

The aim of this in vitro study was to investigate the measuring range and accuracy of a miniaturized equipment for respiratory impedance (Zrs) measurements in newborns using jet-pulses. Brief flow pulses (peak flow=16 L x min(-1), width=10 ms) were generated by a jet-generator consisting of a solenoid valve and an injector, situated between pneumotachograph and outflow resistance. Serially arranged resistance-inertance-compliance (R-I-C) lung models (RM=1.3-6.4 kPa x L(-1) x s, CM=7.4-36.9 mL x kPa(-1), IM=1.5 Pa x L(-1) x s2) were used to measure the real and imaginary part of Zrs between 4 and 50 Hz and to determine R, C and I by means of the method of least squares. The median errors for R, C and I were -0.1 kPa x L(-1) x s (-2%), 2.4 mL x kPa(-1)(13%) and -0.2 Pa x L(-1) x s2 (-13%) for measurements without breathing signals and 0.11 kPa x L(-1) -s (3%), 3 mL x kPa(-1) (16%) and 0.28 Pa x L (-1) x s2 (19%) in mechanically ventilated models. During spontaneous breathing the influence of the breathing flow on Zrs was negligible. The equipment did not show any nonlinearity when different pulse amplitudes were used (Vmax=13-22 L x min(-1)). The investigations have shown that jet-pulses allow reliable measurements of respiratory impedance and have the potential to provide valuable information about lung mechanics in spontaneously breathing and mechanically ventilated newborns. The developed measuring head has a low apparatus dead space, is easy to disinfect, has standard connections and can be used as the T-piece in a ventilator circuit.  (+info)

Medical ventilator is a mechanical ventilator, its a machine designed or intended to move breathable air into and out of the lungs, to provide breathing for a patient who is physically not able to breath. In ventilators the air supply is pneumatically packed a few times each moment to convey room-air, or in most cases, an air/oxygen mixture to the patient. If a turbine is used, the turbine pushes air through the ventilator, with a flow valve adjusting pressure to meet patient-specific parameters.. The cutting edge ventilators are modernized ventilator machines, in which patients can be ventilated with a bag valve mask, a simple had operated bag valve mask, a basic hand worked sack valve veil.

As patient size increased, the ventilators showed better synchronization with the lung simulator. In the 10-kg model the inspiratory efforts were smaller, which reduced these ventilators ability to detect the onset of inspiration and expiration. In addition, the airway resistance was higher in the 10-kg model than in the 20-kg and 30-kg models, which also impaired triggering and led to miss-triggering and delayed cycling. Miss-triggering was more frequent with the lower body weight and obstructive conditions.. The limitations of pressure-targeted ventilators during NIV in small children are well documented in recent clinical9 and bench studies.10 Essouri et al reported that all patients , 10 kg showed marked patient-ventilator asynchrony (ineffective inspiratory efforts ranging from 32% to 97% of inspiratory efforts), and 33% of patients over 10 kg also showed patient-ventilator asynchrony.9 In a bench study, Fauroux et al evaluated the performance of 17 home ventilators during NIV, with ...

A respiratory device is a medical device used to provide medication or assist a patient who is having difficulty in breathing and cannot achieve adequate oxygen levels to maintain life. Patients with respiratory disorders such as cystic fibrosis, asthma, COPD, and ARDS require the need of respiratory devices. The medication is delivered in the form of mist inhaled into the lungs. In general, for medication a mouthpiece or mask is placed to the mouth through which the patient slowly breathes until all the medicine is inhaled while for breathing problems the device is placed in a room to expel warm or cool mist into the air. Certain devices such as mechanical ventilators are connected through an endotracheal tube placed in the patients trachea (windpipe); this is known as an invasive ventilator. Some of the latest mechanical ventilators assist breathing through a mask or mouthpiece (non-invasive ventilators)..

The incidence of PVA is very high during pediatric conventional ventilation. As a whole, children spend about one-third of the time in conflict with their ventilator. We described an a priori defined group with severe PVA, but marked PVA was present even in the other children, and the proportion of children which could be considered as well synchronized is low. Besides, an unexpected form of bad interaction was observed, with the high prevalence of low ventilatory drive.. The magnitude of PVA that we observed is in agreement with that previously described [10-12]. In a recent study conducted in a PICU, Blokpoel et al. [10] showed that PVA occurred in 33% of breaths. These authors identified PVA using the analysis of ventilator waveforms, a method which has a low sensitivity [6].

Recent publications have suggested that in infants receiving artificial ventilatory support a particular pattern of interaction between spontaneous breaths and ventilator inflations (active expiration against each ventilator inflation) may be important in the production of pneumothoraces. We have looked at patterns of interaction from 47 preterm infants studied on 51 occasions. We found that active expiration against the ventilator occurred on a total of 16 occasions. This pattern was prevented on 14 occasions by altering the ventilator settings. In two other babies, the pattern persisted but neither baby developed a pneumothorax.. ...

In 2001, Eli Lilly's chairman, president and CEO, Sidney Taurel, told shareholders: "No medicine better symbolizes our mission than Xigris," calling it "one of our industry's genuine breakthroughs."[5]. Xigris was designed to fight sepsis, a condition that kills more than 200,000 Americans annually. It was the only approved drug for sepsis, and it costs $8,000 to treat a single patient. Lilly hoped it would be a blockbuster, with sales of at least a billion dollars a year. But after five years on the market, sales were only $200 million.. Eli Lilly used the Belsito & Company PR firm in a marketing campaign to promote Xigris, its drug for treatment of sepsis. A report in the New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM) accused the company of initiating false reports of a shortage of the drug to boost sales.[6] Belsito and Company spread the word that the drug was being "rationed" and physicians were being 'systematically forced' to decide who would live and who would die.
