Corey Pew, Glenn K Klute
The prescription and fitting of a traditional lower limb prosthesis often focuses on straight walking, neglecting maneuvers such as turning and pivoting that require flexibility in the transverse plane. Current devices that allow transverse plane movement only offer a fixed stiffness and are incapable of adapting to varying daily activities. Pilot testing of a first-generation variable stiffness torsion adapter (VSTA I) showed a benefit for individuals with lower limb amputation by reducing peak transverse plane moments at the residual limb which could lead to increased comfort, but testing was limited due to excessive device height and mass...

BACKGROUND: Patients undergoing general anesthesia and mechanical ventilation during major abdominal surgery commonly develop pulmonary atelectasis and/or hyperdistention of the lungs. Recent studies show benefits of lung-protective mechanical ventilation with the use of low tidal volumes, a moderate level of positive end-expiratory pressure (PEEP) and regular alveolar recruitment maneuvers during general anesthesia, even in patients with healthy lungs. The purpose of this clinical trial is to evaluate the effects of intraoperative lung-protective mechanical ventilation, using individualized PEEP values, on postoperative pulmonary complications and the inflammatory response...

Newborns affected by congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) need cardio-respiratory stabilization before undergoing surgical repair. Open lung strategy is a well-established approach to optimize lung volume in preterm infants with Respiratory Distress Syndrome (RDS), using both High Frequency Oscillatory Ventilation (HFOV) and Conventional Mechanical Ventilation (CMV). We report a case of left CDH with severe lung hypoplasia, managed applying open lung strategy in HFOV (pre-surgery period) and in Assist-Control with Volume Guarantee (post-surgery period), guided by SpO2 changes, TcPO2 and TcPCO2 monitoring...

BACKGROUND: The alveolar recruitment maneuver (RM) has been reported to improve oxygenation in acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) and may be related to reduced extravascular lung water (EVLW) in animals. This study was designed to investigate the effects of RM on EVLW in patients with ARDS. METHODS: An open label, prospective, randomized controlled trial including patients with ARDS was conducted in hospitals in North Taiwan between 2010 and 2016. The patients were divided into 2 groups (with and without RM)...

Mechanical ventilation strategies in pediatric acute respiratory distress syndrome (pARDS) continue to advance. Optimizing positive end expiratory pressure (PEEP) and ventilation to recruitable lung can be difficult to clinically achieve. This is in part, due to disease evolution, unpredictable changes in lung compliance, and the inability to assess regional tidal volumes in real time at the bedside. Here we report the utilization of thoracic electrical impedance tomography to guide daily PEEP settings and recruitment maneuvers in a child with pARDS...

BACKGROUND: Positive end-expiratory pressure (PEEP) is a key element of mechanical ventilation. It should optimize recruitment, without causing excessive overdistension, but controversy exists on the best method to set it. The purpose of the study was to test the feasibility of setting PEEP with electrical impedance tomography in order to prevent lung de-recruitment following a recruitment maneuver. We enrolled 16 patients undergoing mechanical ventilation with PaO2/FiO2 <300 mmHg...

Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV) is the most frequent type of vertigo. The treatment of canalithiasis of the posterior semicircular canal consists in performing a particle-repositioning maneuver, such as the Epley maneuver (EM). However, the EM is not effective in all cases. The objective of this study is to identify risk factors, which predict the EM failure, among the clinical variables recorded in anamnesis and patient examination. This is an observational prospective multicentric study. All patients presenting with BPPV were recruited and applied the EM and appointed for a follow-up visit 7 days later...

BACKGROUND: The test and treatment for benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV) are evidence-based practices supported by clinical guideline statements. Yet these practices are underutilized in the emergency department (ED) and interventions to promote their use are needed. To inform the development of an intervention, we interviewed ED physicians to explore barriers and facilitators to the current use of the Dix-Hallpike test (DHT) and the canalith repositioning maneuver (CRM). METHODS: We conducted semi-structured in-person interviews with ED physicians who were recruited at annual ED society meetings in the United States...

BACKGROUND: In the 2014 PROtective Ventilation using HIgh versus LOw positive end-expiratory pressure (PROVHILO) trial, intraoperative low tidal volume ventilation with high positive end-expiratory pressure (PEEP = 12 cm H2O) and lung recruitment maneuvers did not decrease postoperative pulmonary complications when compared to low PEEP (0-2 cm H2O) approach without recruitment breaths. However, effects of intraoperative PEEP on lung compliance remain poorly understood. We hypothesized that higher PEEP leads to a dominance of intratidal overdistension, whereas lower PEEP results in intratidal recruitment/derecruitment (R/D)...

BACKGROUND: Shoulder pain and pain in the upper abdomen are common complaints after laparoscopy, sometimes surpassing the pain at incision sites. The incidence of shoulder pain ranges from 35 to 80%. Post-laparoscopic pain is caused by retention of carbon dioxide in the abdomen, which irritates the phrenic nerve and diaphragm, causing referred pain in the shoulder and in the upper abdomen. A promising strategy to reduce this post-laparoscopic pain is the pulmonary recruitment maneuver, which indirectly increases intraperitoneal pressure and thereby facilitates removal of residual carbon dioxide...

One-lung ventilation (OLV) is an anesthesiological technique that is increasingly being used beyond thoracic surgery. This requires specific skills and knowledge about airway management, maintenance of gas exchange and prevention of acute lung injury. Sometimes maintaining adequate gas exchange and minimizing acute lung injury may be opposing processes. Parameters validated for OLV titration still have not been found, but a multimodal approach based on low tidal volume, end-expiratory pressure application and alveolar recruitment maneuvers is considered the best way to ensure protective ventilation and reduce lung damage...

Respiratory muscle weakness and chest wall abnormalities in neuromuscular diseases (NMD) may lead to decreased pulmonary volumes. We assessed the reversibility of vital capacity (VC) reduction with mechanical In-Exsufflation (MI-E). We evaluated the effects of positive inspiratory and negative expiratory pressures on spirometric variables under passive (without patients' participation) and active (with active participation) application in 47 NMD patients. VC, inspiratory capacity (IC), expiratory reserve volume (ERV) were measured during maneuvers without and with MI-E assistance, delivering inspiratory assistance (+40cmH2O), expiratory assistance (-40cmH2O) and both (±40cmH2O)...
