Acute hypoxemic respiratory failure may require invasive mechanical ventilation. However, invasive mechanical ventilation is associated with a variety of complications. Non-invasive ventilation has been presented as an alternative treatment but controversy remains. The investigators hypothesize that high-flow nasal cannula system is effective enough to prevent intubation in acute hypoxemic respiratory failure and not inferior to non-invasive ventilation ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Acute respiratory failure in children. AU - Friedman, Matthew L.. AU - Nitu, Mara. PY - 2018/7/1. Y1 - 2018/7/1. N2 - This article reviews the definition, pathophysiology, etiology, assessment, and management of acute respiratory failure in children. Acute respiratory failure is the inability of the respiratory system to maintain oxygenation or eliminate carbon dioxide. Acute respiratory failure is a common cause for admission to a pediatric intensive care unit. Most causes of acute respiratory failure can be grouped into one of three categories: lung parenchymal disease, airway obstruction, or neuromuscular dysfunction. Many patients with acute respiratory failure are managed successfully with noninvasive respiratory support; however, in severe cases, patients may require intubation and mechanical ventilation..

The successful treatment of hypercapnic respiratory failure with oral modafinil Helen Parnell,1 Ginny Quirke,1 Sally Farmer,1 Sumbo Adeyemo,2 Veronica Varney11Respiratory Department, 2Pharmacy Department, St Helier Hospital, Carshalton, Surrey, UKAbstract: Hypercapnic respiratory failure is common in advanced chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and is usually treated by nasal ventilation. Not all patients requiring such ventilation can tolerate it, with anxiety and phobia influencing their reaction, along with treatment failure. We report the case histories of six patients with hypercapnic respiratory failure who were at risk of death due to refusal of nasal ventilation or its failure despite ongoing treatment. We report their improvement with oral modafinil 200 mg tablets used as a respiratory stimulant, which led to discharge, improved arterial blood gases, and offset further admissions with hypercapnic respiratory failure. This drug is licensed for narcolepsy and is said to stimulate the

Doctors Ask: The syndrome of acute respiratory failure has different causes of occurrence. The emergence of symptoms of acute respiratory failure requires the provision of emergency care and further hospitalization. The syndrome of acute respiratory insufficiency is a pathological condition characterized by a sharp change in the process of gas exchange in the lungs.
The investigators in this study are concerned about the harmful effects of oxygen exposure in newborn infants, particularly at high concentrations. Inhaled nitric oxide (iNO) is an FDA approved drug for the treatment of hypoxic respiratory failure (HRF) in term and late-preterm babies greater than 34 weeks gestation. Hypoxic respiratory failure occurs when a patients lungs cannot get enough oxygen into their bloodstream. This condition is traditionally treated with high concentrations of oxygen and most often requires the patient be placed on a ventilator (breathing machine). The administration of inhaled nitric oxygen directly into the lungs often improves blood oxygen levels and allows caretakers to reduce the amount of oxygen given to the baby. The purpose of this research study is to evaluate if giving the inhaled nitric oxide earlier in the course of disease improves the effectiveness of the drug, reduces the amount of cellular injury from oxygen exposure, and decreases the total amount of ...
The Neonatal Research Network developed and initiated 3 multicenter randomized controlled clinical trials evaluating inhaled nitric oxide therapy. Additional projects evolved from these efforts including basic science research and observational investigations. This article provides a historical prospective of the Networks investigations related to the diagnosis and management of neonatal hypoxic respiratory failure, especially those related to inhaled nitric oxide therapy. It will review the Networks contributions toward advancing the clinical care of the newborn with severe hypoxic respiratory failure.
Background: Long-term non-invasive positive pressure ventilation (NIPPV) might improve the outcomes of pulmonary rehabilitation in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) with chronic respiratory failure. A study was undertaken to investigate whether nocturnal NIPPV in addition to pulmonary rehabilitation improves health-related quality of life, functional status and gas exchange compared with pulmonary rehabilitation alone in patients with COPD with chronic hypercapnic respiratory failure.. Methods: 72 patients with COPD were randomly assigned to nocturnal NIPPV in addition to rehabilitation (n = 37) or rehabilitation alone (n = 35). Outcome measures were assessed before and after the 3-month intervention period.. Results: The Chronic Respiratory Questionnaire total score improved 15.1 points with NIPPV + rehabilitation compared with 8.7 points with rehabilitation alone. The difference of 7.5 points was not significant (p = 0.08). However, compared with rehabilitation alone, ...
Noninvasive positive pressure ventilation requires careful application in appropriate patients. It is most likely to benefit patients who are expected to improve rapidly, particularly those with acute exacerbations of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. However, all forms of noninvasive ventilation, including CPAP, require scrupulous clinical monitoring so that endotracheal intubation and mechanical ventilation are instituted promptly before life-threatening respiratory failure becomes imminent and to avoid emergency intubation or cardiopulmonary arrest. Patients with acute lung injury who were chosen for the trial by Delclaux and colleagues might represent a group for whom many clinicians would avoid using CPAP because rapid improvement is not expected and previous evidence of effectiveness in this population is lacking. Patients with acute hypoxemic nonhyercapnic respiratory insufficiency may benefit from maintaining CPAP as continuously as possible, given the potential for rapid ...

Dr. Kearney presented an interesting case of an individual with untreated HIV who presented with dyspnea found to have hypoxemic respiratory failure. The patients history of a significant period of time off antiretroviral therapy (,3 years), the severity of the presentation of hypoxemic respiratory failure, and the severity of the lymphopenia (CD4# ,35) data-preserve-html-node="true" raised suspicion for opportunistic infection. Sputum and blood cultures for fungus subsequently returned positive for Coccidioides immitis. Treatment had been started for coccidioidomycosis empirically with an azole and was subsequently increased to include amphotericin B once cultures returned positive. Highly active antiretroviral therapy was begun on admission as well. The patients respiratory failure improved over the subsequent days, but unfortunately he developed recurrent hypoxemic respiratory failure and pseudosepsis concerning for IRIS. The differential for dyspnea in the HIV+ patient is myriad. However, ...

Acute respiratory failure in adults with severe thoracic scoliosis is said to be a preterminal event. The following analysis of 13 consecutive cases contradicts this assumption. All patients demonstrated a severe restrictive ventilatory defect (average vital capacity, 39% of predicted). In addition, five patients had evidence of airways obstruction, and six had abnormal steady-state diffusing capacities (average, 49% of predicted). Respiratory failure was precipitated by acute bronchopulmonary infection in seven cases, cor pulmonale in five, and barbiturates in one. Admission arterial blood gases were severely deranged: average arterial PCO2, 66 mm Hg; average pH, 7.31; average arterial oxygen saturation, 54%. ...

This systematic review shows a clear benefit of NPPV as an adjunct treatment to usual medical care in the management of patients admitted to hospital with respiratory failure secondary to an acute exacerbation of COPD. NPPV with usual medical care significantly reduces mortality, endotracheal intubation, treatment failure, complications, length of hospital stay, and blood gas tensions.. Although NPPV reduces the need for intubation, in some patients NPPV will fail, and it is essential that a decision be made with the patient on what should be done in this eventuality. Patients for whom NPPV eventually fails, despite initial tolerance and effectiveness of the treatment, need to be distinguished from patients who cannot tolerate it at all. An uncontrolled study of these "late failures" suggests a poor outcome regardless of whether the patient is intubated or continues to receive NPPV.21. NPPV reduced the length of stay in hospital by more than three days, and length of stay in hospital did not ...

Background: Invasive mechanical ventilation (IMV) is frequently used in patients with community-acquired pneumonia (CAP) and severe respiratory failure. However, there is little information on these patients.. Methods: We prospectively enrolled consecutive patients hospitalized with CAP for 12 yrs. We assessed the characteristics and outcomes of patients on IMV, those who needed non-invasive ventilation (NIV) and no ventilatory support, and determined predictors for the need of ventilation and mortality.. Results: Among 3,719 patients included, 154 (4%) required IMV, 136 (4%) NIV, and 3,429 (92%) were not ventilated. Streptococcus pneumoniae was the main pathogen. Current alcohol consumption, higher levels of C-reactive protein, worse baseline oxygenation, higher Pneumonia Severity Index, and bacteremia at admission independently predicted the need for IMV, while former tobacco consumption and fever at admission were independently associated with no need for IMV. Likewise, higher levels of ...

Respiratory failure occurs when the respiratory system fails in oxygenation and/or carbon dioxide (CO 2 ) elimination. Respiratory failure may be type I or type II
Respiratory failure happens when not enough oxygen passes from your lungs into your blood. Your bodys organs, such as your heart and brain, need oxygen-rich blood to work well. Respiratory failure also can happen if your lungs cant remove carbon dioxide (a waste gas) from your blood. Too much carbon dioxide in your blood can harm your bodys organs.. Diseases and conditions that affect your breathing can cause respiratory failure. Examples include. ...
We agree with the letter from Scala and Esquinas [1] in response to the article by Schortgen and colleagues [2], who emphasised the use of non-invasive ventilation in the ICU as the best ventilatory treatment for do not intubate octogenarian patients. Scala and Esquinas argued that ICU beds are scarce and that the ICU environment alters contact between the patient and family.. We do not, however, entirely accept the views of Schortgen and colleagues. Use of the non-invasive ventilation mask for palliative care patients with acute respiratory distress prevents the patient from eating and talking, and the patients experience can be that of being smothered. When the major indication is hypoxemia, a treatment option is the administration of high-flow oxygen using up to 60 l/minute heated and humidified oxygen through a nasal cannula [3]. The mouth is thus freed and the patient is able to eat and talk with his family. The cost to efficiency ratio is favourable because the Optiflow® oxygenation ...

Objective Specific comorbidities and old age create a greater vulnerability to severe Coronavirus Disease 19 (COVID-19). While obesity seems to aggravate the course of disease, the actual impact of the body mass index (BMI) and the cutoff which increases illness severity are still under investigation. The aim of the study was to analyze whether the BMI represented a risk factor f qor respiratory failure, admission to the intensive care unit (ICU) and death. Research Design and Methods A retrospective cohort study of 482 consecutive COVID-19 patients hospitalised between March 1 and April 20, 2020. Logistic regression analysis and Cox proportion Hazard models including demographic characteristics and comorbidities were carried out to predict the endpoints within 30 days from the onset of symptoms. Results Of 482 patients, 104 (21.6%) had a BMI ≥ 30 kg/m2. At logistic regression analysis, a BMI between 30 and 34.9 kg/m2 significantly increased the risk of respiratory failure (OR: 2.32; 95% CI: ...
Although weaning predictors have been extensively explored in weaning research, their use is currently under debate. From all the stages of mechanical ventilation, the measurements of weaning predictors have been considered by some authors as imperative in order to progress weaning and initiate a weaning trial. However, this practice is rejected by other authors who considered that these tests are not necessary to perform a weaning trial, based in a meta-analysis study from the American College of Chest Physicians. Among all the weaning predictors, the frequency-to-tidal volume ratio (f/VT) remains the most important predictor of weaning. Other predictors have been defined, but their narrow predictive capacity or the requirement of specific technology, have limited their use. The variability of the results obtained by the efficacy of f/VT is probably explained because in most cases weaning is initiated late, when pre-test probability of weaning success is high. In order to reduce weaning ...

Coders should not assign mechanical ventilation when the ventilation is a part of the normal surgical procedure. A rule-of-thumb for assigning mechanical ventilation in the post procedure setting is when ventilation support exceeds 48 hours with the start time as the time of intubation for the procedure. Watch the provider documentation that should indicate some condition as the reason for the extended time as it is unexpected/unanticipated.. There may be times when the rule-of-thumb does not apply. If the duration of the mechanical ventilation is less than 48 hours, however the provider documents this is prolonged and/or unexpected and states the condition that required the extension, the coder would assign the post- operative respiratory failure as documented.. A query opportunity may exist when the patient is extubated in the post-operative setting however, continues to need supplemental oxygen. Watch your clinical indicators as this may represent a respiratory condition.. Be prepared; ...
