• patients
  • 90%. 61 patients received no additional respiratory interventions, and 62 received CPAP for 6 to 12 h/d until they no longer required it or they needed intubation and mechanical ventilation. (acpjc.org)
  • obstruction
  • Following the development of serious respiratory depression (post tracheotomy tracheal stenosis), she underwent Montgomery T-tube insertion, and after 2 weeks developed distal obstruction with dense mucous secretions, and was changed to a Bivona trach. (doctorsmedicalopinion.com)

  • condition
  • Infants born with this condition typically died early in life due to recurrent respiratory infections and pneumonia due to their restricted thorax. (wikipedia.org)
  • group
  • The groups did not differ for any other outcomes at any time point: respiratory indices, need for intubation (34% in the CPAP group vs 39% in the oxygen group, P = 0.5), median duration of ventilation, median ICU stay (6.5 vs 6.0 d, P = 0.4), ICU mortality (21% vs 26%, P = 0.6), and hospital mortality (31% vs 30%, P = 0.9).
