This study has been completed.
Sponsor:
Information provided by (Responsible Party):
Filip Van Ginderdeuren, Vrije Universiteit Brussel
ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier:
NCT02126748
First received: April 24, 2014
Last updated: March 10, 2015
Last verified: March 2015
  Purpose
The purpose of this study is to investigate the effectiveness of two airway clearance techniques; Intrapulmonary Percussive Ventilation and Assisted Autogenic Drainage in hospitalized infants under the age of 2 with acute viral bronchiolitis.

Condition Intervention
Bronchiolitis Other: inhalation 4ml hypertonic saline 3% 3x/day Device: Intrapulmonary Percussive Ventilation Procedure: Assisted Autogenic Drainage

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Single (Outcomes Assessor)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: The Effectiveness of Assisted Autogenic Drainage (AAD) and Intrapulmonary Percussive Ventilation (IPV) to Treat Hospitalized Infants (<2years) With Acute Viral Bronchiolitis: a Randomised Clinical Trial.

Further study details as provided by Filip Van Ginderdeuren, Vrije Universiteit Brussel:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Length of Hospital Stay [ Time Frame: 6 days ]
    Previously publised data ( Luo et al. 2011) showed that the average hospital stay for infants with acute viral bronchiolitis, inhaling 4 ml NaCl3%, three times /day is 6 days ( SD 1,2)


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Wang Score [ Time Frame: before treatment, immediately after treatment and 1h after treatment ]
  • Heartrate [ Time Frame: before, after and 1h after intervention ]
  • Oxygen Saturation (SaO2) [ Time Frame: before, after and 1h after treatment ]
    oxygen saturation (SaO2) measured by pulse -oximetry


Enrollment: 103
Study Start Date: December 2012
Study Completion Date: January 2015
Primary Completion Date: January 2015 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Intrapulmonary Percussive Ventilation
20 min of IPV administered to the patient inhalation 4ml hypertonic saline 3% 3x/day
Other: inhalation 4ml hypertonic saline 3% 3x/day Device: Intrapulmonary Percussive Ventilation
Active Comparator: Assisted Autogenic Drainage
20 min of AAD administered to the patient inhalation 4ml hypertonic saline 3% 3x/day
Other: inhalation 4ml hypertonic saline 3% 3x/day Procedure: Assisted Autogenic Drainage
No Intervention: control
20 min of bouncing administered tot the patient inhalation 4ml hypertonic saline 3% 3x/day
