Noninvasive Mechanical Ventilation in Acute Respiratory Failure Patients: A Respiratory Therapist Perspective
(Bentham Science Publishers, 2015)
Physiotherapist in Chile and Respiratory Therapist worldwide are the professionals who are experts in respiratory care, in mechanical ventilation (MV), pathophysiology and connection and disconnection criteria. They should ...
Respiratory mechanics in infants with severe bronchiolitis on controlled mechanical ventilation
(BioMed Central, 2017-10)
Background: Analysis of respiratory mechanics during mechanical ventilation (MV) is able to estimate resistive, elastic and inertial components of the working pressure of the respiratory system. Our aim was to discriminate ...
Respiratory heat loss in the sheep: a comprehensive model
A model is presented for the respiratory heat loss in sheep, considering both the sensible heat lost by convection (C-R) and the latent heat eliminated by evaporation (E-R). A practical method is described for the estimation ...
Potencia de los músculos inspiratorios en insuficiencia cardíaca crónica y en enfermedad pulmonar obstructiva crónica
(Sociedad Médica de Santiago, 2001)
Coupling of respiratory and sympathetic activities in rats submitted to chronic intermittent hypoxia
(Elsevier B.V., 2014-01-01)
The respiratory modulation of sympathetic activity relies on the balance between excitatory and inhibitory inputs from the brainstem respiratory network to presympathetic neurons of the rostral ventrolateral medulla. This ...
Coupling between respiratory and sympathetic activities as a novel mechanism underpinning neurogenic hypertension
Enhanced sympathetic outflow to the heart and resistance vessels greatly contributes to the onset and maintenance of neurogenic hypertension. There is a consensus that the development of hypertension (clinical and experimental) ...
Ventilator-induced lung injury and acute respiratory distress syndrome: a basic science review
Acute respiratory distress syndrome is the most severe manifestation of acute lung injury and it is associated with high mortality rate. Despite better understanding of ARDS pathophysiology, its mechanism is still unclear. ...
Modulation of respiratory TLR3-anti-viral response by probiotic microorganisms: lessons learned from Lactobacillus rhamnosus CRL1505
(Frontiers Res Found, 2014-05-12)
Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) is the leading cause of lower respiratory tract illness in infants and young children. Host immune response is implicated in both protective and immunopathological mechanisms during RSV ...
