BACKGROUND Transcutaneous measurements of CO2 and O2 (PtcCO2 , PtcO2 ) are noninvasive and allow for continuous monitoring in adults with exacerbation of COPD, but substantial accuracy issues may exist. We investigated agreement between results of arterial blood gas analysis and transcutaneous measurements of CO2 and O2 in patients with COPD. METHODS Adult subjects were monitored after acute admission to a respiratory intermediate care unit or ICU due to exacerbation of COPD and with ongoing non...

BACKGROUND User errors in managing heated humidifiers (HHs) have been suggested to be a source of nasal burns in newborns treated with nasal CPAP. This study evaluated the risk of burns by reproducing 3 typical errors concerning the use of HHs. METHODS Six HHs were tested on a bench in a traditional nasal CPAP setup: PMH5000, Aircon (Wilamed); MR730, MR850, MR950 (Fisher & Paykel); and H900 (Hamilton). Temperature was measured at the end of the inspiratory tubing limb. Errors tested were (1) mis...

Nitric oxide (NO) is a biologically active molecule approved for the treatment of pulmonary hypertension in newborn patients. Commercially available NO delivery systems use pressurized cylinders as the source of NO and a sensor to control the concentrations of NO and nitrogen dioxide (NO2) delivered. Cylinder-based delivery systems are safe and widely used around the world, but they are bulky, expensive, and reliant on a robust supply chain. In the past few years, novel NO generators and deliver...

In patients with cystic fibrosis (CF), despite the availability of many different pharmacologic agents, lung function deteriorates and lung disease progresses and leads to hypercapnic respiratory failure in some patients. In such cases, noninvasive ventilation (NIV) seems to be a promising technique that can be used on demand. This review summarizes the current applications of NIV in clinical settings as well as findings of the clinical trials that involved the delivery of NIV on variable occasi...

BACKGROUND: Peak flow testing is a common procedure performed in ambulatory care. There are currently no data regarding aerosol generation during this procedure. Given the ongoing debate regarding the potential for aerosol transmission of SARS-CoV-2, we aimed to quantify and characterize aerosol generation during peak flow testing. METHODS: Five healthy volunteers performed peak flow maneuvers in a particle-free laboratory space. Two devices continuously sampled the ambient air during the proced...
