Weaning From Mechanical Ventilation in Paediatrics. State of the Art
(Sociedad Española de Patología Respiratoria, 2014)
Weaning from mechanical ventilation is one of the greatest volume and strength issues in evidence-based medicine in critically ill adults. In these patients, weaning protocols and daily interruption of sedation have been ...
Progression of regional lung strain and heterogeneity in lung injury: assessing the evolution under spontaneous breathing and mechanical ventilation
Abstract Background Protective mechanical ventilation (MV) aims at limiting global lung deformation and has been associated with better clinical outcomes in acute respiratory ...
Microcirculatory dysfunction and dead-space ventilation in early ARDS: a hypothesis-generating observational study.
Abstract Background Ventilation/perfusion inequalities impair gas exchange in acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). Although increased dead-space ventilation (VD/VT) has been described in ARDS, its mechanism is not ...
Mild hypothermia increases pulmonary anti-inflammatory response during protective mechanical ventilation in a piglet model of acute lung injury
(John Wiley & Sons, 2013)
BACKGROUND: The effects of mild hypothermia (HT) on acute lung injury (ALI) are unknown in species with metabolic rate similar to that of humans, receiving protective mechanical ventilation (MV). We hypothesized that mild ...
Mild hypothermia attenuates lung edema and plasma interleukin-1 beta in a rat mechanical ventilation-induced lung injury model
Recent data suggest that deep hypothermia has protective effects on experimental induced lung injury. It is not well known if these effects persist with mild hypothermia. The authors hypothesized that mild hypothermia may ...
