Neonatal respiratory distress syndrome (RDS) is a problem often seen in premature babies. The condition makes it hard for the baby to breathe.
Infants and children with severe respiratory distress or compromise may require oxygenation with ventilation support, initially with a bag-valve-mask device. If the airway and breathing require furthe... more
Infants with established respiratory distress syndrome who receive animal derived surfactant extract treatment have a decreased risk of pneumothorax, a decreased risk of pulmonary interstitial emphysema, a decreased risk of mortality, and a decreased risk of bronchopulmonary dysplasia or death.
Scientists discovery of new form of neonatal respiratory distress syndrome offers clues to treatments for infants who dont respond to steroid drugs. A discovery by scientists at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies might explain why some premature infants fail to respond to existing treatments for a deadly respiratory distress syndrome (RDS) and offers clues for new ways to treat the breathing disorder.. The scientists identified a new form of RDS in newborn mice and traced the problem to a cellular receptor for thyroid hormone, a key player in many developmental processes in the body. They found that two drugs used for treating overactive thyroid glands saved mice with a deadly genetic alteration that mimicked the newly discovered lung problem.. "Weve added a piece of the puzzle that had been missing for decades," says Ronald Evans, a Howard Hughes Medical Institute Investigator and the March of Dimes Chair in Developmental and Molecular Biology at Salk. "This gives us an entirely new ...
This study was designed to investigate the correlation between expression levels of cysteine aspartic protease-3 (caspase-3) and B-cell lymphoma gene-2 (Bcl-2) proteins in alveolar lavage fluid and the prognosis of infants with neonatal respiratory distress syndrome (RDS). A total of 150 infants with neonatal RDS undergoing alveolar lavages were divided into four groups: RDS1 (group A, n=42), RDS2 (group B, n=38), RDS3 (group C, n=38) and RDS4 (group D, n=32) according to their thoracic X-ray film grading. The oxygen uptake score, oxygenation saturation, mean airway pressure and expression levels of caspase-3 and Bcl-2 in alveolar lavage fluid of the infants in the four groups were measured and compared ...
I wasnt going to give up on my daughter," Bruce Saiaana, Tatianas father told KIRO 7.. "She was still fighting so we had to fight for her too," added her mother, Elise Saiaana.. Looking for more options, neonatologist Dr. Kendra Smith suggested trying Perflubron, a liquid ventilation drug that was used in the 90s. The drug, which isnt currently FDA approved in the United States, is approved for use in Canada and Europe. While it was scrapped after the manufacturer found it had little use in adults, there were some studies done in the 90s that showed it offered benefits to premature infants with severe respiratory distress syndrome.. After getting an emergency exception waiver, Seattle Childrens Hospital administered tiny amounts of Perflubron to carefully expand Saiaanas lungs. Initially the treatment didnt work, but soon then they started to see improvement and Tatiana started to breathe on her own.. Three and a half months after welcoming their baby girl, the couple was able to bring ...
The baseline neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) admission rate at 39 weeks was 2.6 percent, but this rate nearly doubled for each week before 38 weeks. Another group analyzed 13,258 elective cesarean deliveries, of which 35.8 percent were performed before 39 weeks, and found that infants born before 39 weeks had a significantly increased risk of adverse outcomes. Notably, this was also true for the neonates born at 38 weeks. A retrospective review of almost 180,000 births showed that the risk of severe respiratory distress syndrome was 22.5-fold higher for neonates born at 37 weeks and 7.5-fold higher for infants born at 38 weeks compared with those born at or after 39 weeks. The risk of an early term neonate being admitted to the NICU is approximately one in 20 deliveries, compared with about one in 50 for neonates born between 39 and 40 weeks. ...
Study leaders have previously reported a significant reduction in the number of babies born weighing more than 4 kilograms (about 8.8 pounds) to women who received diet and lifestyle advice during pregnancy. The researchers can now report a range of other benefits for these babies, including a lower chance of moderate to severe respiratory distress syndrome and a shorter hospital stay.. "Approximately 50% of women are overweight or obese during pregnancy. Until this study was conducted, there had been little evidence about the overall benefits of dietary and lifestyle interventions on this group of women," said study coauthor Dr. Rosalie Grivell, from the Universitys Robinson Research Institute.. "Our hope is that by following some simple, practical and achievable lifestyle advice, pregnant women can improve their health and the outcomes for their babies. We would, of course, recommend that these lifestyle changes be adopted as much as possible before women become pregnant," Dr. Grivell says. ...
Limb remote ischemic preconditioning (RIPC) is an effective means of protection against ischemia/reperfusion (IR)-induced injury to multiple organs. Many studies are focused on identifying endocrine mechanisms that underlie the cross-talk between muscle and RIPC-mediated organ protection. We report that RIPC releases irisin, a myokine derived from the extracellular portion of fibronectin domain-containing 5 protein (FNDC5) in skeletal muscle, to protect against injury to the lung. Human patients with neonatal respiratory distress syndrome show reduced concentrations of irisin in the serum and increased irisin concentrations in the bronchoalveolar lavage fluid, suggesting transfer of irisin from circulation to the lung under physiologic stress. In mice, application of brief periods of ischemia preconditioning stimulates release of irisin into circulation and transfer of irisin to the lung subjected to IR injury. Irisin, via lipid raft-mediated endocytosis, enters alveolar cells and targets ...

ISSN 1999-7671.. BACKGROUND: The treatment guideline for the management of respiratory distress syndrome in the newborn unit at Auckland City Hospital (ACH), Auckland, New Zealand, was amended in July 2010. In keeping with current evidence, the initial dose of poractant alpha was increased from 100 mg/kg to 200 mg/kg. The outcomes of newborns requiring treatment with surfactant before and after this change were reviewed. METHODS: Electronic clinical records were reviewed of infants admitted to ACH who received surfactant during the period December 2008 - December 2011. There were two groups: group A were infants who received 100 mg/kg of poractant alpha as an initial dose (December 2008 - June 2010), and group B were infants who received 200 mg/kg as an initial dose (July 2010 - December 2011). Infants ...
Norwich owners and breeders have been aware of the "snort and snuffle" respiratory noises and raspy breathing that some Norwich exhibit. Symptoms are quite variable, ranging from loud breathing, to exercise and heat intolerance, to severe respiratory distress and death. This condition, which is now being called Norwich Terrier Upper Airway Syndrome (NTUAS), appears to be breed-specific and involves complex genetic changes to the upper airway, specifically the larynx. The larynx is a complex structure that controls the amount of air that enters into the trachea (windpipe) and lungs. If the larynx is obstructed in any way, respiratory distress will ensue ...
Sorry for the paucity of communications as the internet has been out at our guest house and at the hospital. Mellanye Lackey was able to work out a satellite communication modem card that we are now using. Well the team is in HIGH GEAR after arriving Monday am. Tuesday morning was spent trying to organize and develop our strategy for all that the team is doing. Jenny Boyd has taken the HUGE task of transforming the PICU space (now 6 years old located "Up the Hill") into a FUNCTIONAL PICU, with all the limitations that come with doing this in a resource limited environment. With all the PICU RNs (John, Kristi, Anna, Jeannie,Sue and Katherine), immersed in the formidable task ahead the PICU was transformed in a matter of hours. Shiela and Judy worked on establishing oxygen therapy and noninvasive ventilation, which we needed before lunch ever arrived. SO, the next in the list of FIRSTS for our team is putting a child with severe respiratory distress onto BiPaP....Fast forward 1.5 days and that ...
Plain text: Background Over a few months in the spring of 2011, a cluster of patients with severe respiratory distress were admitted to our intensive care unit (ICU). Household clustering was also observed. Extensive laboratory investigations failed to detect an infectious cause. Methods Clinical, radiological and pathological investigations were conducted and the Korean Center for Disease Control performed epidemiological studies. Results The case series consisted of 17 patients. Their median age was 35 (range 28-49) years. Six were pregnant at presentation and four had given birth 2 weeks previously. All presented with cough and dyspnoea. In the majority of patients (14/17), multifocal areas of patchy consolidation were identified in the lower lung zones on the initial CT. As the condition progressed, the patchy consolidation disappeared (10/13) and diffuse centrilobular ground-glass opacity nodules started to predominate and persist. Pathological specimens (11/17) showed a bronchiolocentric, ...
A couple of weeks ago, the QA (Quality Assurance) man brought round a copy of the new AMPDS (that is, the system call takers use for triage) protocols. It got a hearty thumbs up from just about everyone. AMPDSs biggest problem is the inclusion of the question "Is s/he breathing normally?" in just about every protocol. If the caller answers no, it tends to decide that the patient has "severe respiratory distress" and churn out a Cat A response. The trouble with this is that if the patient is puffing with pain, or upset and crying, of course their breathing is going to be difficult from normal - but not in a medically relevant way. Yet AMPDS treats someone who is hyperventilating at the pain of their papercut the same as someone with a life threatening asthma attack.. Well, not any more! The infamous "are you breathing normally" question is completely gone from a lot of protocols, and when it IS there, a "yes" only results in an amber response, not a red. The rationale, which I totally agree ...

There has been much controversy in recent years regarding the early use of postnatal corticosteroids to treat preterm infants with respiratory distress syndrome (RDS). Short term respiratory benefits must be weighed against the potential for detrimental neurodevelopmental effects.. This study reports follow up data on growth, neurological and motor function, cognition, and school performance of two groups of ex-preterm infants assessed when reaching school age. In the original study, 262 preterm infants with severe RDS were randomly allocated to receive either early postnatal dexamethasone or placebo. The study had reported a significant reduction in chronic lung disease in the dexamethasone treated group without excess mortality. The children followed up at school age were the survivors of the original study. At school age (mean 8 years) children in the dexamethasone treated group were significantly shorter and had smaller head circumferences than the placebo treated controls. In addition, ...
Respiratory distress syndrome (RDS) is common in preterm infants born at less than 32 weeks gestation; surfactant and mechanical ventilation have been the standard treatment. However, despite advances in neonatal respiratory care, a considerable number of preterm infants develop chronic lung disease, termed bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD), which is associated with neonatal death, prolonged neonatal intensive care stay, and impaired neurodevelopment. High-frequency oscillatory ventilation (HFOV) was developed as a new ventilation technique in the late 1970s. It was expected to result in less BPD and death as a primary model of ventilation compared to conventional ventilation (CV) in the treatment of RDS. However, there is disagreement concerning the advantage of HFOV over CV in the treatment of RDS in preterm infants regarding the prevention of death, BPD, intraventricular hemorrhage, and periventricular leucomalacia in the short term. The purpose of this study was to compare the efficacy and ...

Normal intrauterine lung development is comprised of stages featuring both cellular proliferation to increase total lung size, and cellular differentiation by which the airway and alveolar architectures are elaborated from primordial organ buds (Chaps. 2 and 37). By the time the fetus reaches normal term gestation (~38 weeks), there is ongoing alveolarization and normally the lungs are structurally and biochemically prepared for the transition to extrauterine function in gas exchange. Among the most profound changes in the lung at the time of birth are: (1) the replacement of fluid with gas in the airways, with consequent generation of alveolar surface tension forces that must be overcome; and (2) a fall in pulmonary vascular resistance, with consequent increase in pulmonary blood flow. These changes must occur over a relatively short time frame for normal pulmonary function. As an additional challenge, the newborns lungs are surrounded by ribs and related thoracic structures that are ...
OBJECTIVE: We studied the ante- and postnatal risk factors and clinical outcomes associated with pulmonary interstitial emphysema (PIE) in extremely low birth weight infants (ELBW, |1000 g at birth) in the present era of tocolytics, antenatal steroid
BACKGROUND: One course of antenatal corticosteroids reduces the risk of respiratory distress syndrome and neonatal death. Weekly doses given to women who remain undelivered after a single course may have benefits (less respiratory morbidity) or cause harm (reduced growth in utero). We aimed to find out whether multiple courses of antenatal corticosteroids would reduce neonatal morbidity and mortality without adversely affecting fetal growth. METHODS: 1858 women at 25-32 weeks gestation who remained undelivered 14-21 days after an initial course of antenatal corticosteroids and continued to be at high risk of preterm birth were randomly assigned to multiple courses of antenatal corticosteroids (n=937) or placebo (n=921), every 14 days until week 33 or delivery, whichever came first. The primary outcome was a composite of perinatal or neonatal mortality, severe respiratory distress syndrome, intraventricular haemorrhage (grade III or IV), periventricular leucomalacia, bronchopulmonary dysplasia, ...

AU - Claxton, David. PY - 2018/10/3. Y1 - 2018/10/3. N2 - Acute respiratory complications occur frequently during the early phase of acute myeloid leukemia (AML) but information on the most severe form, acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), is lacking. We retrospectively analyzed 280 patients with newly diagnosed AML in order to describe the incidence, risk factors and early mortality associated with ARDS within 15 d. Univariate and then multivariate analysis were performed. ARDS developed in 9% of patients and was associated with 64% day-30 mortality. White blood cell count on admission was an independent risk factor for ARDS (OR = 1.007, 95% CI = 1.001-1.012, p =.012) with a moderate prediction ability (AUC 0.704, p =.001). Other variables were associated with ARDS in univariate but not in multivariate ...

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

Twenty infants, mechanically ventilated in the neonatal period for respiratory distress syndrome, were compared with 15 healthy controls, matched for birthweight(less than 1501 g) but greater in mean gestational age. Clinical features and lung mechanics (by whole body plethysmography) were recorded at 6-monthly intervals until about one year. THe neonatal course of the mechanically ventilated infants was commonly complicated by tracheobronchial hypersecretion and the later course by a fairly high incidence of lower respiratory tract illness. In this group, thoracic gas volume, dynamic compliance, pulmonary and airways conductance were all abnormal during the middle 4 months of the first year and reverted towards normal towards the end of the first year. The control group had normal lung mechanics. Early lung function tests were of limited value in predicting later lower respiratory tract illness, which was more common in boys, after neonatal mechanical ventilation for longer than 24 hours or ...
Background: Neonatal respiratory distress syndrome (NRDS), a life-threatening pulmonary disorder, involves 1% of all deliveries worldwide. Shallow breathing causes restlessness in infants, which itself affects pulmonary function; thus, sedative medications are used to preserve better pulmonary function. There are different opinions about the benefits and superiority of these drugs. Objective: The study purposed to assess and compare the effects of fentanyl and midazolam on the required time of mechanical ventilation in infants with respiratory distress syndrome (RDS). Methods: In this randomized clinical trial, 60 infants with RDS were randomly allocated to 2 groups (30 infants each); the first group underwent sedation with midazolam (0.1 mg/kg), and the second group received 0.5 mcg/kg of fentanyl during ventilation. The duration of hospitalization, required time of ventilation, drug complications, feeding intolerance, as well as pneumothorax incidence and need for re-intubation were recorded and
Poractant alfa and Calsurf are two natural surfactants widely used in China for the treatment of neonatal respiratory distress syndrome, which are extracted from porcine and calf lungs, respectively. The purpose of this experimental study was to compare their in vitro characteristics and in vivo effects in the improvement of pulmonary function and protection of lung injury. The biophysical properties, ultrastructure, and lipid composition of both surfactant preparations were respectively analysed in vitro by means of Langmuir-Blodgett trough (LBT), atomic force microscopy (AFM), and liquid-chromatography mass-spectrometry (LC-MS). Then, as core pharmacological activity, both head-to-head (100 and 200 mg/kg for both surfactants) and licensed dose comparisons (70 mg/kg Calsurf vs. 200 mg/kg Poractant alfa) between the two surfactants were conducted as prophylaxis in preterm rabbits with primary surfactant deficiency, assessing survival time and rate and dynamic compliance of the respiratory system ...

Intubation and mechanical ventilation are majors component of intensive care for premature neonates with respiratory distress syndrome (RDS) and is associated with physiologic, biochemical, and clinical responses indicating pain and stress in prematures. Although morphine is one of the most used drugs for premedication and for sedation and analgesia during mechanical ventilation in the treatment of RDS its pharmacological profile precludes several limitations mostly due to its much delayed onset of action what makes the drug not suitable as premedication and due to its prolonged duration of action mainly in prematures. Unlike morphine, remifentanil has an unique pharmacokinetic properties with a rapid onset of action and, a fast decrease in plasma concentration after interruption of administration due to a context-sensitive half-time of 3.2 minutes. So, it could be the ideal opioid for neonates who are especially sensitive to respiratory depression by ...
Less invasive surfactant administration (LISA) in preterm infants with respiratory distress syndrome avoids mechanical ventilation and may further reduce the risk of death or bronchopulmonary dysplasia.1 A recent European survey indicates that the percentage of centres using LISA increased, but with wide variation in procedure. In particular, there is no consensus about whether sedation should be used.2 International guidelines recommend sedation for intubation but it can hamper spontaneous breathing, which is necessary for LISA. Recently, a study compared two groups … ...

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

Acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) is a severe lung condition. It occurs when fluid fills up the air sacs in your lungs. Too much fluid in your lungs lowers the amount of oxygen in your bloodstream. ARDS can prevent your organs from getting the oxygen they need to function, and it can eventually cause organ failure.. ARDS most commonly affects hospitalized people who are very ill. It can also be caused by serious trauma. Symptoms usually occur within a day or two of the original illness or trauma, and they may include extreme shortness of breath and gasping for air.. ARDS is a medical emergency and a potentially life-threatening condition.. ...

Acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) is a life-threatening condition. When a person develops ARDS, their lungs are no longer able to supply their body with adequate amounts of oxygen. The alveoli -- air sacs -- fill up with fluid. Most people already have a serious underlying health condition that causes ARDS.
