Clinical Trial Summary

30% of ARDS patients ventilated according to NIH protocol presents CT scan evidence of hyperinflation. Functional analysis of pressure-time curve (Stress Index=SI) has been shown to identify this condition in experimental settings. We tested the hypothesis that the SI is an accurate predictor of mechanical stress due to overdistention in ARDS patients.


Clinical Trial Description

The study presents two parts : a preliminary validation study and a clinical study. ;
