Critical care and ventilatory management of deceased organ donors impact lung use and r...
American Journal of Transplantation : Official Journal Of... Swanson EA, Patel MS et. al.

Jun 16th, 2021 - Current risk-adjusted models for donor lung use and lung graft survival do not include donor critical care data. We sought to identify modifiable donor physiologic and mechanical ventilation parameters that predict donor lung use and lung graft su...

Diaphragm function in acute respiratory failure and the potential role of phrenic nerve...

Current Opinion in Critical Care; Reardon PM, Wong J et. al.

Apr 27th, 2021 - The aim of this review was to describe the risk factors for developing diaphragm dysfunction, discuss the monitoring techniques for diaphragm activity and function, and introduce potential strategies to incorporate diaphragm protection into conven...

Evolution Over Time of Ventilatory Management and Outcome of Patients With Neurologic D...
Critical Care Medicine; Tejerina EE, Pelosi P et. al.

Mar 18th, 2021 - To describe the changes in ventilator management over time in patients with neurologic disease at ICU admission and to estimate factors associated with 28-day hospital mortality. Secondary analysis of three prospective, observational, multicenter ...

Rest ventilator management in children on veno-venous extracorporeal membrane oxygenation.
The International Journal of Artificial Organs; Friedman ML, Abu-Sultaneh S et. al.

Mar 16th, 2021 - We aimed to use the Extracorporeal Life Support Organization registry to describe the current practice of rest mechanical ventilation setting in children receiving veno-venous extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (V-V ECMO) and to determine if rela...

Computed tomography assessment of PEEP-induced alveolar recruitment in patients with se...
Critical Care (London, England); Ball L, Robba C et. al.

Feb 26th, 2021 - There is a paucity of data concerning the optimal ventilator management in patients with COVID-19 pneumonia; particularly, the optimal levels of positive-end expiratory pressure (PEEP) are unknown. We aimed to investigate the effects of two levels...

The ASTERS Study: Assessing the Role of Sphingolipids in AcuTE Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS)

Feb 13th, 2020 - Since it was first described in 1967 by Ashbaugh et al, ARDS/ALI remains a global clinical problem resulting in high morbidity and mortality. These lung syndromes are life threatening, rapidly progressive disease occurring in critically ill patien...

Real-time Effort Driven VENTilator Management

Dec 27th, 2019 - Study Aims: SA1: To determine if REDvent acute and/or weaning phase protocols can shorten the duration of weaning from MV (Primary outcome). SA2: To determine if changes to direct measures of respiratory muscle strength, load, effort, and architec...

Long Term Follow up of Children Enrolled in the REDvent Study

Oct 17th, 2018 - Background and Significance: Through advancements in critical care, PARDS mortality has decreased from 50% to less than 20%. Therapeutic strategies for PARDS have sought to improve survival, but have often ignored morbidity, despite extensive evid...

Severe ARDS: Generating Evidence

Mar 22nd, 2018 - Approximately one-quarter of ARDS patients develop severe hypoxemia, which has been associated with mortality rates approximating 40-50%. The majority have been described to present with severe disease at baseline, suggesting an opportunity for ea...

Respiratory Mechanics Registry for ARDS Patients

Jul 26th, 2017 - The amount of respiratory impairment in patients with Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS) is variable and applying the same ventilator regimen to every patient is questionable. In order to individualize ventilator management, monitoring res...

Risks of removing the default: Lung protective ventilation IS for everyone
Kusum S. Mathews, MD, MPH, MSCR, And Daniel Howell, MBBS Msc

Apr 9th, 2019 - Since the landmark ARMA trial, use of low tidal volume ventilation (LTVV) at 6 mL/kg predicted body weight (PBW) has become our gold standard for ventilator management in acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) (Brower RG, et al. N Engl J Med.

Inhomogeneity: The Lung and ARDS

Mar 13th, 2014 - Introduction In an article published in January in the American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine,[1] Cressoni and colleagues explore 2 complex phenomena: (1) the distribution of localized damage to the lung in acute respiratory di...

Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation May Improve Outcomes in Severe Acute Respiratory Failure

Sep 24th, 2009 - September 24, 2009 — Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) vs conventional ventilator management may improve the odds of survival without disability for patients with severe acute respiratory failure, according to the results of a UK-based, m...

Inhaled NO Decreases Mortality Rate in Premature Infants With Respiratory Distress Syndrome

Nov 26th, 2003 - Nov. 26, 2003 — The use of inhaled nitric oxide (NO) decreases the incidence of chronic lung disease and death in premature infants with respiratory distress syndrome, according to the results of a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled stud...

ICU Management of Trauma Patients

Airway and Ventilator Management Airway management in trauma patients must take into account the patient's injuries and physiologic state, potential for anatomic distortion, risk for cervical spine injury, a potentially full stomach, and premorbid...
