New Masimo Rainbow SET PVI Measurement May Provide Significant Value in the Detection and Treatment of Processes that Produce Increased Intrathoracic Pressure
1,5) Although our patient did not experience any complications, this case should serve as a reminder that singultus can be a symptom of a potentially significant intrathoracic process, such as pneumonia.
Track intrathoracic fluid accumulation via OptiVol Fluid Status Monitoring that monitors fluid build-up in a patient's chest and lungs;
It is possible that the high intrathoracic pressure caused by high PEEP results in reduced cardiac output and dampened arterial waves which make it difficult to accurately absorb light.
The latter was used as an indicator of the intrathoracic pressure because of the potential of the thoracic packing to raise this parameter and produce barotrauma.
Its unique design combines circumferential and sternum compression to generate a rapid rise in intrathoracic pressure (see attached photo).
This feasibility study demonstrated that the OptiVol(TM) Fluid Status Monitoring feature in an implantable medical device can successfully detect changes in fluid accumulation in the thoracic cavity (lungs and chest) by measuring changes in intrathoracic impedance.
With mediastinal emphysema, further transmission of air up fascial planes can be reduced by eliminating straining and increasing intrathoracic pressure with cough suppressants, stool softeners, analgesics, and bed rest.
Secondary spontaneous pneumothorax occurs as a complication of intrathoracic disease.
Medtronic told physicians that the cause of the intrathoracic tumors in the two animals was most probably a phenomenon called "solid-state tumorigenesis" occasionally seen in animals with implants of large surface area matece.
MIDHeFT and FAST demonstrated the safe and effective use of implantable device-based intrathoracic impedance measurement.
McLoughlin et al (3) suggested that epidural analgesia during labour might reduce hyperventilation and excessive changes in intrathoracic pressure during contractions.
