- Overlap sendromlu olguda ekstÃ¼basyon sonrasÄ± solunum yetmezliÄŸinde noninvaziv ventilasyon uygulamasÄ±. Tunç, Mehtap; Ulus, Fatma; Şipit, Tuğrul; Şavkılıoğlu, Eser // Genel Tip Dergisi;2011, Vol. 21 Issue 2, p75
Objective: OSAS is characterized by repetitive episodes of airflow cessation due to upper airway collapse during sleep. The combination of COPD and OSAS has been named "Overlap syndrome (OS)". OS with patients have a markedly increased risk of impairing daytime gas exchange and respiratory...
- The Effect Of Varying Inspiratory Flow Waveforms On Alveolar Peak Airway Pressure And Intrinsic Positive End Expiratory Pressure In Mechanically Ventilated Patients. Barrera, Rafael; Gabovich, Natalie; Sogoloff, Helen; Groeger, Jeffrey; Miodownik, Saul // Internet Journal of Pulmonary Medicine;2005, Vol. 5 Issue 2, p4
Purpose: To prospectively evaluate peak airway pressure (PaW) intrinsic PEEP (PEEPi), extrinsic PEEP (PEEPe) and peak expiratory flow rate (PEFR) with changing inspiratory flow waveforms during mechanical ventilation in patients. Material And Methods: Ten critically ill mechanically ventilated...

Evaluates the limitations in the pulse oximetry procedure in the detection of acute respiratory insufficiency. Causes of respiratory insufficiency; Measurement of arterial oxygen saturation; Enhancement of borderline hypoxemia detection.
- Helium-Oxygen Mixture to Facilitate Ventilation in Patients With Bronchiolitis Obliterans Syndrome After Lung Transplantation. Kirkby, Stephen; Robertson, Michael; Evans, Laura; J Preston, Thomas; D Tobias, Joseph; E Galantowicz, Mark; T Mckee, Christopher; Hayes Jr, Don // Respiratory Care;Apr2013, Vol. 58 Issue 4, pE42
A combination of helium and oxygen (heliox) can facilitate gas exchange and limit peak inspiratory pressures through reduced resistance to gas flow and decreased turbulent flow. The combination of these gases has been used for a variety of upper and lower airway conditions, including patients...
- Prolonged High-Frequency Oscillatory Ventilation in Tubercular Multifocal Cystic Lung Disease. Mohari, Nivedita; Raj, Dinesh; Lodha, Rakesh; K. Kabra, Sushil // Respiratory Care;Dec2012, Vol. 57 Issue 12, p2111
Multifocal cystic lung disease in infants is most commonly congenital, and is managed surgically with perioperative mechanical ventilation. Multifocal cystic lung disease in infants may be due to tuberculosis. We report a young infant with tubercular multifocal cystic lung disease and...
