1. Using physiological models and decision theory for selecting appropriate ventilator settings.
Match Strength: 4.024
OBJECTIVE: To present a decision support system for optimising mechanical ventilation in patients residing in the intensive care unit. METHODS: Mathematical models of oxygen transport, carbon dioxide transport and lung mechanics are combined with penalty functions describing clinical preference toward the goals and side-effects of mechanical ventilation in a decision theoretic approach. Penalties are quantified for risk of lung barotrauma, acidosis or alkalosis, oxygen toxicity or absorption atelectasis, and hypoxaemia. RESULTS: The system is presented with an example of its use in a post ... Read More »

2. Successful use of surfactant to treat severe intrapulmonary hemorrhage after iatrogenic lung injury--A case report.
Match Strength: 3.298
OBJECTIVE: To describe the beneficial clinical effect of the use of surfactant in a patient with severe unilateral pulmonary hemorrhage after iatrogenic lung injury during corrective surgery for congenital heart defects. DESIGN: Case report. SETTING: Pediatric cardiac intensive care unit of a tertiary care hospital. PATIENT: An 11-wk-old boy. INTERVENTIONS: Intratracheal instillation of 4 mL (100 mg) of surfactant (Survanta) per kilogram of body weight to treat profound and refractory hypoxia and hypercapnia despite high-ventilation pressures, high respiratory rate, and the use of nitric oxide ...
