SESSION TITLE: Outcomes/Quality Control Posters IISESSION TYPE: Original Investigation PosterPRESENTED ON: Wednesday, October 29, 2014 at 01:30 PM - 02:30 PMPURPOSE: To demonstrate the likely variability of medication delivery from continuously operating pneumatic nebulizers at different I/E ratios as adult patient I/E ratios are known to vary widely in advanced obstructive disease (Nikander, K, Denyer,J. Eur.Respir.Rev. 2000;10(76):576-579).METHODS: Two continuously operating jet nebulizers (n=5/group; AirLife® Misty Fast™, CareFusion, San Diego, CA, and NebuTech® HDN®, Salter Labs, Arvin, CA) operated with compressed air at 50 psig were evaluated with an adult tidal breathing waveform (tidal volume-500 mL) with I:E ratios = 1:1, 1:2, 1:3 and 1:4 with 15, 10, 7 and 6 breaths/min respectively, delivered by breathing simulator (ASL5000, IngMar Medical, Pittsburgh, PA)...

BACKGROUND: Arformoterol, the (R,R) isomer of formoterol, is approved as an inhalation solution for the treatment of bronchoconstriction in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Multiple nebulizer systems are commercially available. Different nebulizers can differ significantly in drug output, which may impact drug delivery and clinical efficacy. This study compared the aerosol properties of arformoterol delivered via 5 commonly used nebulizer systems for the home-care market...

UNLABELLED: Aerosol therapy via small-volume nebulizer (SVN) accounts for a large proportion of the respiratory care workload. Treatment time is mostly nebulization time, which is highly variable, depending on SVN design. We studied the workload effect of adopting a faster nebulizer. We hypothesized that time saved by faster SVN treatment can be used by respiratory therapists for other patient-care activities. METHODS: We compared day-shift workload distribution in a post-thoracic-surgery ward during 2 consecutive 30-day periods...

Search Tips

Use Boolean operators: AND/OR

diabetic AND foot
diabetes OR diabetic

Exclude a word using the 'minus' sign

Virchow -triad

Use Parentheses

water AND (cup OR glass)

Add an asterisk (*) at end of a word to include word stems

Neuro* will search for Neurology, Neuroscientist, Neurological, and so on

Use quotes to search for an exact phrase

"primary prevention of cancer"
(heart or cardiac or cardio*) AND arrest -"American Heart Association"
