Study Description
Brief Summary:
The OPTIFLOW ™ use is becoming more common in acute respiratory failure cases, but its place in relation to VNI (Bi-PAP mode) is not yet defined. OPTIFLOW ™ vs the VNI comparison of the use, in the immediate postoperative period, should lead to define the role of each technique and lead to a optimal rationalization of patients management with acute respiratory failure after surgery.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment
Respiratory Insufficiency Device: Non invasive ventilation (VNI) Device: Non invasive ventilation

Detailed Description:

Main objective: to determine, if the initiation of OPTIFLOW™ system immediate after cardio/ thoracic surgery with acute respiratory failure or immediate after post extubation in patients at risk, is not less than the start a VNI per BIPAP Vision ®system. In terms of reintubation rates, refusal to continue the technique, or switch to another technique proposed.

Secondary objectives:

  • To assess changes in the sensation of dyspnea
  • To analyze the skin tolerance and the comfort in this population
  • To analyze the evolution of hemodynamic and respiratory parameters
  • To compare the number of bronchoscopy performed during the patient's stay in intensive care unit
  • Assess the number of postoperative pneumonia and antibiotic consumption
  • To determine whether the initiation of any treatment changes in the immediate postoperative length of stay in intensive care and comprehensive.
