Outcome of ventilatory support for acute respiratory failure
in motor neuron disease.
LiquiVent is a perfluorochemical (PFC) liquid that is administered directly into the lungs of patients with acute respiratory failure
who are being sustained by mechanical ventilators.
Physician-sponsored clinical trials using LiquiVent to treat premature and neonatal infants with acute respiratory failure
are also under way in the United States.
ARDS is generally recognized as acute respiratory failure
characterized by an increase in lung permeability, pulmonary edema (an oxygenation defect), diffuse pulmonary infiltrates on chest x-rays and relatively normal cardiac function.
Alliance is a pharmaceutical research and development company with three products currently in clinical studies: Oxygent, an intravascular oxygen carrier for use as a temporary ``blood substitute,'' which is being co-developed with affiliates of Johnson & Johnson; LiquiVent, an intrapulmonary ``liquid ventilation'' drug for use in treating patients with acute respiratory failure
, which is being co-developed with Hoechst Marion Roussel; and Imagent US, an intravenous contrast agent for enhancement of ultrasound images.
Mechanical ventilation patients are comprised of individuals who have acute respiratory failure
, compromised lung function, difficulty in breathing or failure to protect their airway.
The mortality rate of patients with acute respiratory failure
due to TB is higher than that of patients with respiratory failure due to other causes, and ranges from 40% to 80%.
Effect of prone positioning on the survival of patients with acute respiratory failure
These reports included a case associated with acute respiratory failure
, but none with choriocarcinoma.
Non-invasive ventilation (NIV) has become a standard of care for the management of acute respiratory failure
, but there is a risk of leaks around the mask that may interfere with ventilator performance.
Adaptive support ventilation versus conventional ventilation for total ventilatory support in acute respiratory failure
Unlike Sars, it attacks the kidneys also, leading to kidney failure, Septic Shock, Multi-organ Failure and Acute Respiratory Failure
An estimated 200,000 patients a year have acute respiratory failure
in the U.
