Pneumobelt for sleep in the ventilator user: clinical experience

2020-07-16T10:43:02+02:00

A pneumobelt with a positive pressure respirator was used for sleep for three patients with chronic respiratory insufficiency secondary to syringomyelia, poliomyelitis, and Friedreich's ataxia respectively. This device was found to be effective in improving and maintaining their daily functioning in the community or institute. original article: https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/2774892/ authors: GF Yang 1, A Alba, M [...]

Alternative approach to the respiratory management of the high cervical spinal cord injury patient

2020-07-16T10:42:54+02:00

The loss of normal respiratory functions is usually seen following high cervical spinal cord injuries. Since respiration is mainly a function of the diaphragm and intercostal muscles, paralysis of these groups will result in respiratory insufficiency. The traditional management approach of bedside ventilator support has been supplemented in recent years with more sophisticated [...]

Daytime noninvasive ventilatory support for patients with ventilatory pump failure: a narrative review

2020-07-16T10:35:01+02:00

Over the past three decades, the use of noninvasive ventilation or "NIV" to assuage symptoms of hypoventilation for patients with early onset or mild ventilatory pump failure has been extended to up to the use of continuous noninvasive ventilatory support (CNVS) at full ventilatory support settings as a definitive alternative to tracheostomy mechanical [...]

Noninvasive respiratory management of high level spinal cord injury

2020-07-16T10:32:23+02:00

This article describes noninvasive acute and long-term management of the respiratory muscle paralysis of high spinal cord injury (SCI). This includes full-setting, continuous ventilatory support by noninvasive intermittent positive pressure ventilation (NIV) to support inspiratory muscles and mechanically assisted coughing (MAC) to support inspiratory and expiratory muscles. The NIV and MAC can also [...]
