Medication errors are frequent and a serious safety concern. Chlorhexidine (CHX) is used daily in healthcare as a disinfectant. Its accidental intravascular injection is scarcely described. Serious complications, such as acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) could be a consequence. We describe a case of central venous administration of 0.1% CHX mouthwash, its potential complications and possibilities of treatment. In contrast to another case report our patient had no detectable adverse side effects...

The rapid expansion of the elderly population has led to the recent epidemic of age-related diseases, including increased incidence and mortality of chronic and acute lung diseases. Numerous studies have implicated aging and oxidative stress in the pathogenesis of various pulmonary diseases; however, despite recent advances in these fields, the specific contributions of aging and oxidative stress remain elusive. This review will discuss the consequences of aging on lung morphology and physiology, and how redox imbalance with aging contributes to lung disease susceptibility...

Cigarette smoking is the leading cause of preventable disease and death in the US. Cardiovascular co-morbidities associated with both active and secondhand cigarette smoking indicate the vascular toxicity of smoke exposure. Growing evidence supports the injurious effect of cigarette smoke on pulmonary endothelial cells and the roles of endothelial cell injury in development of Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS), emphysema, and pulmonary hypertension. This review summarizes results from studies of humans, preclinical animal models, and cultured endothelial cells that document toxicities of cigarette smoke exposure on pulmonary endothelial cell functions, including barrier dysfunction, endothelial activation and inflammation, apoptosis, and vasoactive mediator production...

Acute lung injury (ALI) and the acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) are high-mortality and life-threatening diseases that are associated with neutrophil activation and accumulation within lung tissue. Emerging evidence indicates that neutrophil-platelet aggregates (NPAs) at sites of injury increases acute inflammation and contributes to the development of ALI. Even though numerous studies have increased our understanding of the pathophysiology of ALI, there is still a lack of innovative and useful treatments that reduce mortality, emphasizing that there is an urgent need for novel treatment strategies...

MiR-199a is a novel gene regulator with an important role in inflammation and lung injury. However, its role in the pathogenesis of sepsis-induced acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) is currently unknown. Our study explored the role of miR-199a in sepsis-induced ARDS and its mechanism of action. First, we found that LPS could up-regulate miR-199a in alveolar macrophages. Down-regulation of miR-199a inhibited the up-regulation of inflammatory cytokines in alveolar macrophages and induced the remission of histopathologic changes, the reduction of pro-inflammatory cytokines, and the up-regulation of apoptosis protein expression in an ARDS lung, showing a protective role for miR-199a...

Acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) is a fatal clinical condition that can be caused by pulmonary and non-pulmonary diseases. Oxidative stress and inflammation play key roles in the development of ARDS. In this study, we investigated whether ferulic acid (FA), an anti-oxidant, was beneficial for prophylaxis of ARDS. We established an ARDS rat model using lipopolysaccharide (LPS) administration. Lung injury was assessed by lung wet/dry ratio and broncho-alveolar lavage fluid (BALF) analysis. Hematoxylin and eosin staining was performed to evaluate the histological changes of the lungs...

RATIONALE: The ratio of PaO2 to FiO2 (P/F) defines ARDS severity and suggests appropriate therapies. OBJECTIVES: We investigated 1) whether a 150 mmHg P/F threshold within the range of moderate ARDS (100-200 mmHg) would define two, more homogeneous subgroups, 2) which criteria led the clinicians to apply ECMO in severe ARDS. Methods & Measurements: At 150 mmHg P/F threshold, moderate patients were split in mild-moderate (n=50) and moderate-severe (n=55). Severe ARDS patients (FiO2 not available in 3 patients ) were split in higher (n=63) and lower-FiO2 (n=18) at 80% FiO2 threshold...

Surfactant Protein C (SPC), a key component of pulmonary surfactant, also plays a role in regulating inflammation. SPC deficiency in patients and mouse models is associated with increased inflammation and delayed repair, but the key drivers of SPC-regulated inflammation in response to injury are largely unknown. This study focuses on a new mechanism of SPC as an anti-inflammatory molecule using SPC-TK/SPC-KO (surfactant protein C-thymidine kinase/surfactant protein C knockout) mice, which represent a novel sterile injury model that mimics clinical acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS)...

Compared to neutrophil chemoattractants, relatively little is known about the mechanism neutrophils use to respond to chemorepellents. We previously found that the soluble extracellular protein dipeptidyl peptidase IV (DPPIV) is a neutrophil chemorepellent. In this report, we show that an inhibitor of the protease activated receptor 2 (PAR2) blocks DPPIV-induced human neutrophil chemorepulsion, and that PAR2 agonists such as trypsin, tryptase, 2f-LIGRL, SLIGKV, and AC55541 induce human neutrophil chemorepulsion...

OBJECTIVE: Ventilator dyssynchrony is potentially harmful to patients with or at risk for the acute respiratory distress syndrome. Automated detection of ventilator dyssynchrony from ventilator waveforms has been difficult. It is unclear if certain types of ventilator dyssynchrony deliver large tidal volumes and whether levels of sedation alter the frequency of ventilator dyssynchrony. DESIGN: A prospective observational study. SETTING: A university medical ICU...

This single-center case series investigated the effect of almitrine infusion on PaO2/fraction of inspired oxygen (FIO2) in 25 patients on veno-venous extracorporeal membrane oxygenation for severe acute respiratory distress syndrome. A positive trial was defined as an increase of PaO2/FIO2 ratio ≥20%. Thirty-two trials were performed. Twenty (62.5%, 95% confidence interval, 37.5%-75%) trials in 18 patients were positive, with a median PaO2/FIO2 ratio increase of 35% (25%-43%). A focal acute respiratory distress syndrome and inhaled nitric oxide therapy were more frequent in patients with a positive response to almitrine...

Nicotinamide phosphoribosyltransferase (NAMPT) exists as both intracellular (iNAMPT) and extracellular (eNAMPT) proteins. eNAMPT is secreted into the blood and functions as a cytokine/enzyme (cytozyme) that activates NFκB signaling via ligation of the TLR4 receptor, further serving as a biomarker for inflammatory lung disorders such as the acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). In contrast, iNAMPT is involved in nicotinamide mononucleotide (NMN) synthesis and has been implicated in the regulation of cellular apoptosis, although the exact mechanisms for this regulation are poorly understood...

RATIONAL: Acute lung injury (ALI) is a common complication after intestinal ischemia and reperfusion (I/R) injury that can lead to acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). We have previously demonstrated that females are protected against lung damage induced by intestinal I/R through an estrogen mediated mechanism. OBJECTIVES: to investigate the effect of obesity on ALI induced by intestinal I/R in female mice. METHODS: C57Bl/6 female mice were fed with a standard low-fat diet (SD) or a high-fat diet (HFD) for 9 weeks...
