Respiratory failure is a common consequence of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).
A concurrent metabolic alkalosis may worsen the respiratory failure, as a higher pH in blood
(and thus in cerebrospinal fluid) results in a weaker respiratory drive. Use of diuretics is
the most common cause of metabolic alkalosis.
When a patient with an acute exacerbation of a respiratory failure is also alkalotic, there
are (at least theoretical) reasons to lower ... Read More
The purpose of this study was to determine the accuracy of one-time respiratory volume
measured by RVM(Respiratory Volume Monitor) compared to the one-time respiratory volume
measured by mechanical ventilation in post-operative ICU patients.
In patients undergoing spinal anesthesia, the investigators used an Infra-red camera and a
respiratory volume monitor to determine the accuracy of the ventilation rate of the infra
red camera by measuring the respiratory rate, ventilation volume, and ventilation volume
with respiratory volume monitor.
The hypothesis of this study is that the administration of an intra-operative dose of
dexmedetomidine will result in adequate analgesia without respiratory depression thereby
resulting in an early discharge from the post anesthetic care unit following
Study topic：A comparative effectiveness research on Jinyebaidu granule in treating patients

The purposes of the present study are (1) to analyze baseline patient characteristics
cross-sectionally, (2) to analyze the prognosis and its predictive factors, and (3) to
examine longitudinal clinical course in patients with chronic respiratory failure receiving
Volume-targeted noninvasive ventilation (VT-NIV), a hybrid mode that targets a preseted
tidal volume (VT) by automated adjustment of pressure support, could guarantee the delivered
VT over pressure-limited noninvasive ventilation (PL-NIV) with fixed level pressure support.
Whether VT-NIV is more effective in improving gas exchange in patients with acute
hypercapnic respiratory failure (AHRF) as compared with PL-NIV remains unclear. Our aim was
to verify ... Read More
The objective of the study is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of Mucinex D tablets in
providing symptom relief when administered as an adjunct to antibiotic therapy in patients
with acute respiratory infection.
The investigators hypothesize that ultrasonography of the newborn lung can be used as an
effective diagnostic tool in neonates ≥ 28 weeks gestation with early symptoms of
The purpose of this study is to determine whether the respiratory rate provided by Kai
Medical Non-Contact Respiratory Rate Monitors are as accurate as that provided by the
currently used methods, including respiratory chest bands.
This study aims to evaluate the asthma control status, asthma symptoms (severity, frequency,
and limitations on activities, etc.), QOL, and use of drugs for asthma attack in adult
The purpose of this study is to assess therapeutic confirmation of AG NPP709 syrup to
evaluate the safety and efficacy in patients with acute upper respiratory tract infection
and chronic inflammatory bronchitis.
This is a multi-center, non-interventional study to assess and describe course and outcomes
in patients diagnosed with Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF) who are treated with Esbriet
(pirfenidone) in Canada, by measuring and reporting observed predicted forced vital capacity
(FVC) change from baseline on an ongoing basis.
A continuous loss of moisture and heat occurs during mechanical ventilation and prediposes
patients to airway damage. Vaporizing humidifier has known to be advantages of improvement
of oxygenation and protection of airway damage. However, there is a lack of study about the
effect of humidified ventilation on oxygenation and respiratory mechanics during one-lung
ventilation. We therefore invesgate that the effect of humidified ventilation on oxygenation
and ... Read More
COPD patients often suffer from dyspnea and exercise intolerance which lower their quality
of life.The aim of this proposed study is to examine the effectiveness of multi-respiratory
muscle training on respiratory function of COPD patients.
