This study aims to assess cerebral autoregulation by near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) in patients with severe coronavirus disease 19 (COVID-19). Results on COVID-19 participants will be compared with prior results of patients with septic shock and cardiac arrest, who participated in NCT03649633 and NCT02790788, respectively.
To estimate the pulmonary response microvascular thrombosis in critical patients due to SARS-Cov-2., at the Hospital General de México "Dr. Eduardo Liceaga", a 15 patients compassionate treatment study was authorized and approved by the ethics and research committee DI-222-2020. Because of the severity of the illness the legal representative sign informed consent in all the patients for performing in-situ thrombolysis with alteplase selectively by catheter in each main pulmonary artery, under fluoroscopic guidance and acquiring images with the iFlow software to assess immediate and post-procedure response.
Mechanical ventilation and ECMO are both technologies interacting on gas exchange. Nevertheless, besides a consensus paper, no evidence-based guidelines regarding protective lung ventilation on ECMO exist to date. Mechanical Ventilation with Intellivent-ASV, an algorithm driven, closed loop system, provides an opportunity to standardize ventilation on ECMO. We propose and validate lung protective ventilation with a closed loop ventilation mode in patients with ECMO.
This is a Phase 2b multi-center, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study evaluating the efficacy and safety of intravenous (IV) Allocetra-OTS 10x10^9 cells vs placebo (1:1) in adult hospitalized patients with severe or critical Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) with associated acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). Patients will be followed for efficacy and safety for 6 months. The trial will include periodic and ad-hoc DSMB review during the study period.
Many questions about management of COVID-19 are still not answered. So, we recruit this study aiming to evaluate improvement of oxygenation in COVID-19 patients with severe ARDS, to improve morbidity and mortality of ICU covid patients, to participate in understanding of real hidden pathophysiology of COVID-19.
This is a Phase 2 randomized study to assess the safety and efficacy of COVI-MSC in the setting of current standard of care treatments for subjects hospitalized subjects with acute respiratory distress syndrome not related to COVID-19 infection.
Neutrophil elastase (NE) released by neutrophils play an important role in inflammatory cascade and lung tissue injury of ARDS.Inhibition of NE is expected to prevent the pathophysiological process of ARDS and alleviate lung injury. Siverestat sodium is a specific inhibitor of NE, which has been proved by basic and observational clinical studies to be effective in alleviating lung injury of ARDS, but there is a lack of prospective multi-center randomized controlled clinical trials.Therefore, this study was intended to evaluate the efficacy of sivelestat sodium in the treatment of ARDS patients with SIRS in a multicenter randomized controlled clinical trial
Acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) accounts for 10% of all ICU admissions and for 23% of patients requiring mechanical ventilation (MV). Its hospital mortality remains high, ranging from 34% in mild forms up to 46% in severe cases. Positive pressure MV remains the cornerstone of management, but at the same time it can contribute to worsening and maintenance of the lung injury when excessive stress and strain is applied to the lung parenchima (so-called ventilator-induced lung injury, VILI). VILI significantly contributes to the morbidity and mortality of ARDS patients, and it has been clearly demonstrated that protective (low-volume, low-pressure) MV settings are associated with a significant survival benefit. Unfortunately, in a certain proportion of ARDS cases, it is difficult to preserve acceptable gas exchange while maintaining protective ventilation settings, due to a high ventilatory load. In these cases, extracorporeal CO2 removal (ECCO2R) can be applied to grant the application of protective or even ultra-protective mechanical ventilation settings. The main outcome of this multicenter, prospective, randomized, comparative open trial is to determine whether early ECCO2R allowing ultraprotective mechanical ventilation improves the outcomes of patients with moderate ARDS.
SARS COV2, the virus that causes COVID-19, was first described in Wuhan, China. For this pathology, which causes severe respiratory infections, preventing the transmission of the virus has become fundamental, that is why vaccines have been developed. In France, this vaccination campaign took place in a context where the lack of confidence in vaccination is high: According to a November 2020 IFOP poll, only 41% of French respondents were willing to be vaccinated against COVID-19. To our knowledge, there are still few qualitative studies on vaccination on the current issue of vaccination against COVID-19.
COVID-19 is respiratory disease caused by the severe acute respiratory coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), a novel coronavirus which has spread rapidly across the world with over 149.9 million laboratory confirmed cases and over 3.1 million reported deaths since December 2019. Approximately 4-8% of hospitalized patients with COVID-19 have co-infection with bacterial pathogens however there is widespread and often broad-spectrum antibiotic use in these patients. This is a prospective, multi-center, non-inferiority pragmatic clinical trial of antimicrobial stewardship prospective audit and feedback versus no antimicrobial stewardship intervention on physicians attending to patients with proven SARS-CoV-2 infection confirmed by nucleic acid testing in the preceding 2 weeks of hospitalization for acute COVID-19 pneumonia. Prospective audit and feedback is the real time review of antibacterial prescriptions and immediate feedback to prescribers to optimize antimicrobial prescriptions. Hospital beds will be stratified by COVID unit and critical care unit beds, and will be computer randomized in a 1:1 fashion into 2 arms (antimicrobial stewardship intervention versus no antimicrobial stewardship intervention) prior to study commencement at the participating site. Patients hospitalized to study-eligible beds will be followed for primary and secondary outcomes.
