  Purpose
Airway pressures change during fiberoptic bronchoscopy and endotracheal suctioning. In this study pressure changes are examined in a mechanical lung model and in a population of ICU patients on mechanical ventilation.

Condition
Respiratory Failure

Study Type: Observational

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Intrabronchial airway pressure [ Time Frame: 2013 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Enrollment: 25
Study Start Date: May 2011
Study Completion Date: May 2016
Primary Completion Date: May 2016 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Groups/Cohorts
mechanically ventilated patients
ICU patients on mechanical ventilation. Daily endotracheal suctioning performed to reduce secretions. Data recorded during these therapeutic interventions.

Detailed Description:

Airway pressures change during fiberoptic bronchoscopy and endotracheal suctioning. In this study such pressure changes are examined in a mechanical lung model and in a population of ICU patients on mechanical ventilation. A systematic recording of airway pressures, tidal volumes and blood gases are carried out during ordinary therapeutic procedures requested by the staff physician. No additional study interventions are carried out.

The aim of the project is to examine negative effects of pressure/volume changes.
