OBJECTIVE: Posterior fossa stroke is unique in its presentation and outcomes, and mechanical ventilation is commonly used in the management of these patients. We aimed to identify predictors of extubation success in patients with posterior fossa stroke, who require mechanical ventilation. DESIGN: We included consecutive adult patients admitted to the neurosciences ICU from January 2003 to December 2012. Extubation failure was defined as re-intubation within 7 days of extubation...

OBJECTIVE: Acute lung injury and acute respiratory distress syndrome have been reported in a significant proportion of patients with critical neurologic illness. Our aim was to identify risk factors for acute lung injury/acute respiratory distress syndrome in this population. DESIGN: Prospective, observational study. SETTING: A 22-bed, adult neurosciences critical care unit at a tertiary care hospital. PATIENTS: Primary neurologic disorder, mechanical ventilation >48 hrs...

REVIEW
Dea Mahanes, Rose Lewis
Many studies have been published on weaning patients from mechanical ventilation, but few have addressed the unique needs of patients with neurologic impairment. Typically, neuroscience patients remain intubated because of concerns over airway protection or neuromuscular weakness. This article discusses special weaning considerations for this patient population. Neurologic-specific weaning trends from a comprehensive ventilator weaning program are also presented.

This study was undertaken to better delineate those brain regions that are either essential or non-essential for vomiting. Fictive vomiting, identified by a characteristic pattern of respiratory nerve discharge, was induced by a combination of emetic drugs and electrical stimulation of abdominal vagal afferents in decerebrate, paralyzed cats. Regions non-essential for coordinating vomiting included the entire cerebellum, structures rostral to the medullary retrofacial nucleus, and spinal cord. Fictive coughing was also elicited following cerebellar removal but was not studied after other procedures...

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
