Effect of peritoneal dialysis vs. haemodialysis on respiratory mechanics in acute kidney injury patients
Background: Peritoneal dialysis (PD) and hemodialysis (HD) are options for the treatment of acute kidney injury (AKI) patients. The aim of this study was to compare the effects of PD and daily HD on respiratory mechanics ...
Developmental changes in cold tolerance and ability to autoresuscitate from hypothermic respiratory arrest are not linked in rats and hamsters
(Elsevier B.V., 2012-05-31)
In adult mammals, severe hypothermia leads to respiratory and cardiac arrest, followed by death. Neonatal rats and hamsters can survive much lower body temperatures and, upon artificial rewarming, spontaneously recover ...
Comparison between noninvasive mechanical ventilation and standard oxygen therapy in children up to 3 years old with respiratory failure after extubation: a pilot prospective randomized clinical study
(Lippincott Williams &wilkins, 2015-02-01)
Objectives: The effectiveness of noninvasive positive-pressure ventilation in preventing reintubation due to respiratory failure in children remains uncertain. A pilot study was designed to evaluate the frequency of ...
Preoperative respiratory muscle dysfunction is a predictor of prolonged invasive mechanical ventilation in cardiorespiratory complications after heart valve surgery
(ELSEVIER SCIENCE BV, 2011)
Objective: To verify whether preoperative respiratory muscle strength and ventilometric parameters, among other clinically relevant factors, are associated with the need for prolonged invasive mechanical ventilation (PIMV) ...
Noninvasive Ventilation in a Pregnant Patient With Respiratory Failure From All-Trans-Retinoic-Acid (ATRA) Syndrome
(Daedalus Enterprises IncIrvingEUA, 2009)
Extended prone position ventilation in severe acute respiratory distress syndrome: A pilot feasibility study
Objectives: The aim of the study was to evaluate the safety of extended prone position ventilation (PPV) and its impact on respiratory function in patients with severe acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). Design: ...
Pathophysiological Basis of Acute Respiratory Failure on Non-Invasive Mechanical Ventilation
(Bentham Science Publishers, 2015)
Noninvasive mechanical ventilation (NIMV) was created for patients who needed noninvasive ventilator support, this procedure decreases the complications associated with the use of endotracheal intubation (ETT). The application ...
The Kolliker-Fuse nucleus orchestrates the timing of expiratory abdominal nerve bursting
(Amer Physiological Soc, 2018-02-01)
Coordination of respiratory pump and valve muscle activity is essential for normal breathing. A hallmark respiratory response to hypercapnia and hypoxia is the emergence of active exhalation, characterized by abdominal ...
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) ...
