ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier:
NCT01402752
First received: July 25, 2011
Last updated: June 16, 2017
Last verified: June 2017
  Purpose
The primary objective of this study is to evaluate the reproducibility of a method of measuring blood flow rates to the tracheo-bronchial mucosa using diluted dimethyl ether as a tracer.

Condition Intervention
Healthy Biological: Blood flow to the tracheo-bronchial mucosa

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: No masking
Primary Purpose: Diagnostic
Official Title: System for Measuring Non-invasive Blood Flow in the Tracheobronchial Mucosa: Validation of Reproducibility

Further study details as provided by Centre Hospitalier Universitaire de Nīmes:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • The reproducibility of two measures of Qaw at a five minute interval [ Time Frame: Five minutes ]
    Qaw is the blood flow measured in the tracheobronchial mucosa. Qaw = VDME/(FDME*alpha*10s) where VDME is the volume of dimethyl-ether exhaled (ml), FDME is the mean concentration of dimethyl-ether (%), alpha is the Bunsen coefficient for the dissolution of dimethyl ether in tissues and blood at 37°C (i.e. 9ml/ml).


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • The time necessary to complete one measure of Qaw (minutes) [ Time Frame: Day 1 ]
    Qaw = blood flow measured in the tracheobronchial mucosa


Enrollment: 0
Study Start Date: November 2013
Estimated Study Completion Date: March 2014
Estimated Primary Completion Date: March 2014 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
