Non Invasive Ventilation (NIV) Related Practices, Monitoring of the NIV Treatment Effect and of the Patient's Comfort
The practices and processes related to the administration of noninvasive ventilation (NIV) in the adult intensive care unit (ICU) of the University hospital of Lausanne will be recorded by an investigator at the bedside. The effect of the NIV treatment on various respiratory parameters ( respiratory rate, expired tidal volume, minute ventilation) will also be recorded using a pneumotachograph. Finally patient's comfort during NIV treatment will be evaluated.
Respiratory Failure Requiring Non Invasive Ventilation
|Study Design:||Observational Model: Cohort
Time Perspective: Prospective
|Official Title:||Observation of Non Invasive Ventilation (NIV) Related Practices, Monitoring of the NIV Treatment Effect and of the Patient's Comfort During NIV|
- Documentation of practices and processes related to NIV treatment [ Designated as safety issue: No ]Documentation of practices and processes related to NIV administration in the adult intensive care unit(type of ventilator used, type of interface chosen, initial settings, organization of the care team and interactions between caregivers).
- Patient's Respiratory comfort [ Designated as safety issue: No ]Patient's respiratory comfort during NIV will be assessed both by the patients themselves with a visual analogic scale and by the investigator.
- Ventilatory parameters [ Designated as safety issue: No ]Tidal volume, respiratory rate, inspiratory time, expiratory time and maximal and mean airway pressure will be measured from the continuous recording of airway pressure and flow obtained with a pneumotachograph.
