A premature female infant with life-threatening respiratory distress which was diagnosed as 'dry lung syndrome' is reported. The mother had 4 weeks of large volume leakage of the amniotic fluid due to premature rupture of the fetal membranes (PROM) at 23 weeks' gestation. The infant was born after 27 weeks' gestation (birthweight, 1016 g) and was suffering(More)
We retrospectively reviewed data on high frequency oscillatory ventilation (HFOV) settings and pulmonary function in 14 extremely low birth weight infants who were treated with piston-type HFOV immediately after birth for severe respiratory distress to investigate the cause of pulmonary interstitial emphysema (PIE) associated with HFOV. PIE developed a mean(More)
To determine whether low mean airway pressure (MAP) and/or stroke volume (SV) settings cause lung injury during piston-type high-frequency oscillatory ventilation (HFOV), we investigated the influence of various combinations of MAP and SV on the amplitude of the pressure swing at four different sites in the normal lung of rabbits. We also examined the(More)
We report a case of idiopathic omental bleeding in a 27-year-old man who was brought to our hospital after the sudden development of intermittent abdominal pain, nausea, and fainting. Computed tomography showed intra-abdominal fluid and emergency laparotomy revealed a hemorrhagic mass in the omental bursa, which was excised. The patient was successfully(More)
We investigated whether the combination of surfactant replacement therapy and early application of high-frequency oscillatory ventilation (HFOV) was more effective in patients with respiratory distress syndrome (RDS) than late application of HFOV and conventional mechanical ventilation (CMV). To determine this, we retrospectively reviewed the cases of 126(More)
We report a case of a 52-year-old female with therapy-resistant pemphigus vulgaris. She was treated with prednisone, azathioprine and gold sodium thiomalate. After administration of a total dose of 110 mg gold sodium thiomalate, she suddenly developed pityriasis rose-like drug eruptions and interstitial pneumonia and died despite intensive care including(More)
