PloS One; Hassan A, Lai W et. al.

Jul 29th, 2021 - Pulmonary complications such as pneumonia, pulmonary atelectasis, and subsequent respiratory failure leading to ventilatory support are a common occurrence in critically ill patients. Intrapulmonary percussive ventilation (IPV) is used to improve ...

Determining a safe upper limit of oxygen supplementation for adult patients: a systemat...
BMJ Open; Lassen ML, Risgaard B et. al.

Jul 28th, 2021 - This systematic review aimed to describe the connection between the inspired oxygen fraction and pulmonary complications in adult patients, with the objective of determining a safe upper limit of oxygen supplementation. MEDLINE and Embase were sys...

Biodegradable stent placement for airway kinking after bronchoscopic lung volume reduct...
The Annals of Thoracic Surgery; Koster TD, Klooster K et. al.

Jul 28th, 2021 - Symptomatic airway kinking after bronchoscopic lung volume reduction with endobronchial valves is rare. Due to the development of the desired lobar atelectasis, the position of the airways of the non-treated lobe changes and this might lead to inv...

Anesthesia considerations to reduce motion and atelectasis during advanced guided bronc...
BMC Pulmonary Medicine; Pritchett MA, Lau K et. al.

Jul 19th, 2021 - Partnership between anesthesia providers and proceduralists is essential to ensure patient safety and optimize outcomes. A renewed importance of this axiom has emerged in advanced bronchoscopy and interventional pulmonology. While anesthesia-induc...

New Lung Ventilation Strategies Guided by Transpulmonary Pressure in VV-ECMO for Severe ARDS

May 5th, 2020 - Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) has been widely used in patients with severe acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). But how to choose mechanical ventilation strategy is still not clear for severe ARDS patients supported by ECMO. Ou...

Heartrate Variability During Conventional and Variable Pressure Support Mechanical Ventilation

Apr 8th, 2020 - Spontaneous-continuous positive airway pressure support (SPN-CPAP/PS) is the routine ventilator mode used in critically ill patients submitted to an intensive care unit (ICU). It guarantees a positive end expiratory pressure, which prevents atelec...

Factors Determining Oxygen Wash in During Pre-oxygenation

Feb 17th, 2020 - Before induction of general anaesthesia pre-oxygenation is a recommended procedure to enhance the time available for solving a problem with the airway or intubation during induction. This can be accomplished by letting the patient breath normal ti...
