Comparison of 2 Strategies of Adjustment of Mechanical Ventilation in Patients With Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome

Most patients suffering from acute lung injury or acute respiratory distress syndrome require mechanical ventilation. In this setting, positive end-expiratory pressure is used to improve arterial oxygenation. While the beneficial effect on clinical outcome of using low tidal volume is clearly proven, the best way to titrate PEEP is not ...

Human Umbilical-Cord-Derived Mesenchymal Stem Cell Therapy in Acute Lung Injury

Phase I-II Clinical Trial - Safety and efficacy of umbilical-cord-derived mesenchymal stem cell (UC-MSC) in patients with acute lung injury,open label, controlled prospective study. Every patient will maintain their standard treatment of acute lung injury, with maximum tolerated dosage without side effects. The day of infusion will be considered day ...

An Observational Cohort Study of Distribution of Ventilation in Infants and Children Requiring Mechanical Ventilation by Electrical Impedance Tomography

A. Specific Aims/Objectives Specific Aim 1: To determine regional compliance and distribution of ventilation in a cohort of children requiring mechanical ventilation. Hypothesis - Abnormal distribution of ventilation will be discovered in all patients. Specific Aim 2: To determine changes in regional distribution of ventilation over the course of mechanical ...

Ultra-protective Pulmonary Ventilation Supported by Low Flow ECCO2R for Severe ARDS

Current best practices for management of severe ARDS include lung protective ventilation and nursing in the prone position. However, the best lung protective strategy is not currently established and using smaller ventilation volumes than standard lung protective ventilation suggest lung recovery is improved. Application of smaller ventilation volumes requires extracorporeal ...

Treprostinil Sodium Inhalation for Patients At High Risk for ARDS

ARDS is defined by acute hypoxemia, respiratory failure and the presence of bilateral lung infiltrates. ARDS is a syndrome of inflammation and increased permeability that may coexist with left atrial or pulmonary capillary hypertension. Several recent trials in ARDS/ALI (Acute Lung Injury) have generated interest in the use of Prostacyclin ...

Efficacy and Safety of FP-1201-lyo (Interferon Beta-1a) in Patients Having Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS)

This is a Phase III clinical study to investigate the efficacy and safety of FP-1201-lyo (recombinant human interferon [IFN] beta-1a) compared to placebo in patients diagnosed with moderate or severe acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). Primary objective is to demonstrate the efficacy of FP-1201-lyo in improving the clinical course and ...

Effect of Intraoperative Fluid Restriction on Postoperative Outcomes in Video-assisted Thoracic Surgery (VATS)

Working hypothesis and aims: The aim of this study is to investigate the effect of restrictive versus standard intraoperative fluid regimen on cardiopulmonary mordibity and mortality after VATS for lung resection. Our study hypothesis is that restrictive intraoperative fluid administration in patients undergoing VATS, will lead to better outcomes compared ...

Phase I Study of Vasoactive Intestinal Peptide in Patients With Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome and Sepsis

PROTOCOL OUTLINE: This is a dose escalation study. Patients receive vasoactive intestinal peptide (VIP) IV over either 6 or 12 hours. Cohorts of 3 patients each receive escalating doses of VIP over either 6 or 12 hours until the maximum tolerated dose is determined. Patients are followed for 30 days.
