Authors: Boomhower J, Noland HE, Frakes MA, Seethala RR, Cohen JE, Wilcox SR Abstract With the COVID-19 pandemic, healthcare systems have been facing an unprecedented, large-scale respiratory disaster. Prone positioning improves mortality in severe hypoxemic respiratory failure, including COVID-19. While this is effective for intubated patients with moderate-to-severe ARDS, it has also been shown to be beneficial for non-intubated patients. Critical care transport (CCT) has become an essential component of combating COVID-19, frequently transporting patients to receive advanced respiratory therapies and distribute ...

Conclusions: HT has been found to have a positive effect on patients suffering from chronic respiratory diseases, improving mucociliary elimination and lung function in common chronic respiratory diseases and also HRQoL. Currently, no official guidelines exist on the use of HT in the form of salt rooms (halo chambers) or dry powder inhalers, but evidence exists for its use as a possible adjuvant therapy. More structured research in the form of randomized clinical trials is required. PMID: 32827399 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Abstract COVID-19, designated as SARS-CoV-2, has caused millions of infections worldwide, including in patients with concomitant infections. Here, we report two unusual cases of patients with triple infections of SARS-CoV-2, Mycobacterium tuberculosis, and HIV. Both cases were confirmed through microbiological and immunological studies. The acute respiratory phase in both patients was treated with supplemental oxygen. Antituberculosis and antiretroviral therapies were started simultaneously. In 2 weeks, both patients demonstrated clinical improvement and recovery from COVID-19. Our findings suggest that even in ca...

AbstractAnesthesiologists and intensivists are modern-day professionals who provide appropriate respiratory care, vital for patient survival. Recently, anesthesiologists have increasingly focused their attention on the type of spontaneous breathing made by non-intubated patients with pulmonary disease cared for in an intensive care unit, and also patients with chronic pain receiving cognitive behavioral therapy. Prior to our modern understanding of respiratory physiology, Zen meditators recognized that breathing has a significant impact on a person ’s mental state and general physical well-being. Examples of this kno...

CONCLUSIONS: Use of NRS and treatment failure in the context of COVID-19 and viral infection associated-AHRF, varied widely. Dispersion of exhaled air is different depending on the type of respiratory therapies and interfaces. Data from randomized controlled trials are lacking.

The European Neuromuscular Centre (ENMC) has always supported the use of ventilatory support in NMD's. There is a lack of provision of mouthpiece ventilation (MPV) and a lack of consensus with regard to it can be delivered, The ENMC convened the 252nd ENMC International Workshop: Developing best practice guidelines for management of mouthpiece ventilation in Neuromuscular Disorders in Amsterdam, The Netherlands from the 6th to 8th March 2020. A total of 21 participants, 19 from Europe, one form the USA and one from Canada representing a total of 11 countries.

Abstract BACKGROUND: Recent studies have demonstrated that high flow nasal cannula (HFNC) prevents intubation in acute hypoxic respiratory failure when compared to conventional oxygen therapy (COT). However, the data examining routine HFNC use in the immediate post-operative period is less clear. RESEARCH QUESTION: Is routine HFNC use superior to COT or non-invasive ventilation (NIV) in preventing intubation in post-operative patients? STUDY DESIGN: and Methods: We comprehensively searched databases (MEDLINE, EMBASE, Web of Science) to identify randomized controlled trials (RCTs) that compared the effect...
