The article presents information on studies on the effectiveness of a non-invasive ventilation (NIV) strategy compared with conventional oxygen management in mechanically ventilated patients having planned extubation. A study was conducted on 106 patients who had chronic respiratory disorders. It has been found that noninvasive ventilation applied immediately after extubation reduced respiratory failure compared with conventional postextubation oxygen therapy.

    Background: Cellular responses to aging and oxidative stress are regulated by type 1 insulin-like growth factor receptor (IGF-1R). Oxidant injury, which is implicated in the pathophysiology of a number of respiratory diseases, acutely upregulates IGF-1R expression in the lung. This led us to...
