AIMS: Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) is characterized by respiratory and heart involvements. In the context of permanently wheelchair bound and on mechanical ventilation (MV) patients, the clinical presentation of acute heart failure (AHF) syndrome may be atypical. We sought to describe clinical and genetic profiles and to determine prognosis of DMD and Becker muscular dystrophy (BMD) patients on home MV (HMV), hospitalized for AHF. METHODS AND RESULTS: We included genetically proven DMD and BMD patients on HMV admitted for AHF...

Today, invasive and non-invasive home mechanical ventilation have become a well-established treatment option. Consequently, in 2010 the German Society of Pneumology and Mechanical Ventilation (DGP) has leadingly published the guidelines on "Non-Invasive and Invasive Mechanical Ventilation for Treatment of Chronic Respiratory Failure". However, continuing technical evolutions, new scientific insights, and health care developments require an extensive revision of the guidelines.For this reason, the updated guidelines are now published...

OBJECTIVE: Available reports on critically ill adults with cystic fibrosis (CF) suggest improving short-term outcomes. However, there is marked heterogeneity in reported findings, with studies mostly based on single-centered data, limiting generalizability. We sought to examine population-level patterns of demand for critical care resources, and the characteristics, resource utilization, and outcomes of ICU-managed adults with CF. METHODS: We used the Texas Inpatient Public Use Data File to identify ICU admissions with CF aged ≥18 years in Texas between 2004-2013...

BACKGROUND: Many preterm infants who survive go on to develop bronchopulmonary dysplasia, probably as the result of persistent inflammation in the lungs. Corticosteroids have powerful anti-inflammatory effects and have been used to treat individuals with established bronchopulmonary dysplasia. However, it is unclear whether any beneficial effects outweigh the adverse effects of these drugs. OBJECTIVES: To examine the relative benefits and adverse effects of late systemic postnatal corticosteroid treatment (> 7 days) for preterm infants with evolving or established bronchopulmonary dysplasia...

BACKGROUND: According to Taiwan's integrated delivery system policy, ventilator-dependent patients are successfully liberated from mechanical ventilation in accordance with step-down care. However, premature discharge affects the 14-d readmission quality index. Therefore, we explored the risk and related factors of subjects liberated from mechanical ventilation who were re-intubated within 14 d. METHODS: This retrospective study analyzed a cohort of ventilator-dependent subjects 17 y of age and older using a population-based database from the Taiwan National Health Research Institutes Database from 2006 to 2010...

Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) has been used successfully for the treatment of patients with respiratory failure due to severe infections. Although rare, parasites can also cause severe pulmonary disease. Tapeworms of the genus Echinococcus give rise to the development of cystic structures in the liver, lungs, and other organs. Acute cyst rupture leads to potentially life-threatening infection, and affected patients may deteriorate rapidly. The case of a young woman from Bulgaria who was admitted to hospital with severe dyspnoea, progressive chest pain, and haemoptysis is described...

Preterm birth has been associated with greater psychological distress and less positive mother infant interactions than were experienced by mothers of full-term infants. Maternal and infant sociodemographic factors have also shown a strong association with psychological distress and the mother-infant relationship. However, findings on their effects over time are limited. In this longitudinal analysis, we explored the relationship of maternal and infant sociodemographic variables (maternal age, maternal education, marital status, being on social assistance, maternal race, infant birth weight, and infant gender) to maternal psychological distress (depressive, posttraumatic stress, anxiety, parenting stress symptoms, and maternal worry about child's health) through 12 months corrected age for prematurity, and on the home environment, and mother-infant interactions through 6 months corrected age for prematurity...

Lung transplantation (LUTX) became a worldwide accepted standard therapy for certain well-defined chronic end-stage lung diseases. Until recently, patients on mechanical ventilation or extracorporeal life support techniques were hardly eligible for LUTX because of the inferior short-term results. However, a paradigm shift has occurred, and now these techniques represent bridging options to LUTX for listed patients. In the current practice, transplantation from the intensive care unit (ICU) is not extraordinary in patients on the waiting list...
