NEWER CONCEPTS IN THE MANAGEMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL PULMONARY EDEMA
- Current concepts in the pathophysiology and treatment of inhalation injury. Cancio, Leopoldo C. // Trauma;Jan2005, Vol. 7 Issue 1, p19
Smoke inhalation injury occurs in about 10% of patients admitted to burn centres, and increases the mortality of burn patients by up to 20% over predictions based on age and burn size alone. The primary lesion in smoke inhalation injury is localized to the small airways, with alveolar injury and...
- Acute Pulmonary Edema with Respiratory Failure -- Newer Concepts in Therapy. Cordasco, E. M.; Piedad, O.; Kester, J.; Yarnal, J.; Sharpe, I. E.; White Jr., R. E. // Angiology;Oct1982, Vol. 33 Issue 10, p655
The treatment for pulmonary edema with the adult respiratory distress syndrome is aimed at the early supportive management of hypovolemic shock. The addition of massive corticosteroid dosage. Methylprednisolone Succinate, of 30 mg/kg body wt/dose every six hours for a 24-48 hour period has been...
- Heart in the Heart. Schuler, Jochen; Dissmann, Martin // New England Journal of Medicine;09/30/99, Vol. 341 Issue 14, p1045
This presents an image of a chest film of a 65-year-old man with a five-year history of uncontrolled hypertension who was admitted to the emergency department with pulmonary edema.

- Recent Developments in Pulmonary Edema. // Annals of Internal Medicine;Dec83, Vol. 99 Issue 6, p808
Discusses methods for the determination of epithelial permeability and lung water. Classifications of pulmonary edema; Role of endothelium in lung fluid balance; Measurement of the effect of microvascular pressure in lung liquid balance; Safety factors for the protection of the lung against...
- Postobstructive Pulmonary Edema. Van Kooy, Mark A.; Gargiulo, Richard F. // American Family Physician;7/15/2000, Vol. 62 Issue 2, p401
Pulmonary edema is a potentially life-threatening complication of acute airway obstruction. It develops rapidly, without warning, in persons who are otherwise well. Two forms of postobstructive pulmonary edema (POPE) have been identified. POPE I follows sudden, severe upper airway obstruction....
- Response of acoustic transmission to positive airway pressure therapy in experimental lung injury. Räsänen, Jukka; Gavriely, Noam // Intensive Care Medicine;Oct2005, Vol. 31 Issue 10, p1434
Objective: To evaluate the effect of positive end-expiratory pressure on the sound filtering characteristics of injured lungs. Design and setting: Prospective experimental study in the animal laboratory in an academic medical center. Patients and participants: Six 35- to 45-kg anesthetized,...
- Noninvasive Ventilation in Acute Cardiogenic Pulmonary Edema: Systematic Review and Meta-analysis. Masip, Josep; Roque, Marta; Sánchez, Bernat; Fernández, Rafael; Subirana, Mireia; Expósito, José Angel // JAMA: Journal of the American Medical Association;12/28/2005, Vol. 294 Issue 24, p3124
Context In patients with acute cardiogenic pulmonary edema noninvasive ventilation may reduce intubation rate, but the impact on mortality and the superiority of one technique over another have not been clearly established. Objective To systematically review and quantitatively synthesize the...
