Measurements of ultrasound diaphragmatic motion, amplitude, force, and velocity of contraction may provide important and essential information about diaphragmatic fatigue, weakness, or paralysis. In this paper, we propose and evaluate a semi-automated analysis system for measuring the diaphragmatic motion and estimating the maximum relaxation rate (MRR_SAUS) from ultrasound M-mode images of the diaphragmatic muscle. The system was evaluated on 27 M-mode ultrasound images of the diaphragmatic mus...

A 60-year-old man with insignificant past medical history, was admitted to the intensive care unit with acute respiratory failure following community-acquired pneumonia. On admission, he was haemodynamically stable in sinus rhythm, febrile and neurologically intact with no focal neurological findings. Under mechanical ventilation, the ratio of arterial oxygen (PaO2) to fractional inspired oxygen concentration (FiO2) was 100. An antibiotic regime of ceftriaxone plus moxifloxacin was administered....

Abstract Purpose In neurologically critically ill patients with mechanical ventilation (MV), the development of acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) is a major contributor to morbidity and mortality, but the role of ventilatory management has been scarcely evaluated. We evaluate the association of tidal volume, level of PEEP and driving pressure with the development of ARDS in a population of patients with brain injury. Materials and methods We performed a secondary analysis of a prospecti...
