BACKGROUND Non-invasive ventilation can prevent respiratory failure after extubation in individuals at increased risk of this complication, and enhanced survival in patients with hypercapnia has been recorded. We aimed to assess prospectively the effectiveness of non-invasive ventilation after extubation in patients with hypercapnia and as rescue therapy(More)
Auscultation of Velcro crackles has been proposed as a key finding in physical lung examination in patients with interstitial lung diseases (ILDs), especially in idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF). However, no studies have been carried out to assess the association of Velcro crackles with other clinical variables.We evaluated a cohort of 132 patients,(More)
Hyperthermia was shown to induce oxidative stress by uncoupling mitochondrial respiratory chain and to reduce superoxide dismutase (SOD) activity in muscles. Reactive carbonyl groups, malondialdehyde (MDA)-protein adducts, 3-nitrotyrosine immunoreactivity, Mn-SOD, and catalase were detected using immunoblotting in rat diaphragm specimens and homogenates(More)
