    Background: A large number of studies have investigated the effects of high tidal volume ventilation in mouse models. In contrast data on very short term effects of low tidal volume ventilation are sparse. Therefore we investigated the functional and structural effects of low tidal volume...

    This article presents a case study related to chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Recent meta-analyses have examined the role of noninvasive ventilation in acute exacerbations of COPD. The objective of the study is to assess the use of different analytic strategies in interpreting the...

    Background: Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) patients frequently pose difficulty in weaning from invasive mechanical ventilation (MV). Prolonged invasive ventilation brings along various complications. Non-invasive positive pressure ventilation (NIPPV) is proposed to be a useful...

  • VENTILATOR INDUCED LUNG INJURY AND INFECTION IN THE CRITICALLYILL. Baudouin, S. V. // Thorax;Sep2001 Supp, Vol. 56, pii50 

    Background: Traditional approaches to mechanical ventilation use tidal volumes of 10-15 ml/kg body weight and may cause stretch-induced lung injury in patients with acute lung injury and the acute respiratory distress syndrome. We therefore conducted a trial to deter- mine whether ventilation...

    Exercise tolerance is reduced across all stages of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and this is coupled with numerous negative outcomes. Exercise-limiting factors in patients with COPD can be summarized as 1) imbalance between ventilatory capacity and demand, 2) imbalance between...

    Transcutaneous neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES) involves the application of an electrical current through electrodes placed on the skin over the targeted muscles. During high-frequency NMES (HF-NMES), oxygen uptake, minute ventilation, and the degree of symptom perception (dyspnea and...

  • High-Frequency Oscillatory Ventilation Can Be Effective as Rescue Therapy for Refractory Acute... Claridge, Jeffrey A.; Hostetter, Roy G. // American Surgeon;Nov1999, Vol. 65 Issue 11, p1092 

    High-frequency oscillatory ventilation (HFOV) is a technique with limited use in adult patients. The main purpose of this pilot study was to evaluate HFOV on adult trauma patients with refractory lung dysfunction. Refractory lung dysfunction was defined as a PaO[sub 2]:FiO[sub 2] ratio <75 for 1...

    In this article, the author comments on a study regarding the elimination of ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP). The author remarks that elimination of VAP in the study is unclear because both content and implementation were incomplete and revealing of hospital's true incidence of VAP is also...
