ALI/ARDS in Oncologic Pediatric Patients
This trial is active, not recruiting.
|Conditions||acute lung injury, acute respiratory distress syndrome, neoplasms|
|Sponsor||Grupo de Apoio ao Adolescente e a Crianca com Cancer|
|Start date||January 2011|
|End date||March 2013|
|Trial size||29 participants|
|Trial identifier||NCT01304654, 0031/11, UTI/IOP 02/11|
Identify pediatric oncologic patients with ALI/ARDS at GRAACC/IOP's Pediatric Intensive Care Unit and evaluate the mechanical ventilation practice in these subjects for a 48mo period.
Identify pediatric oncologic patients with ALI/ARDS at GRAACC's PICU and evaluate how they are mechanically ventilated
time frame: 2y
Epidemiologic data about the selected patients
time frame: 28 days
Male or female participants up to 17 years old.
Inclusion Criteria: - patients admitted at the intensive care unit with diagnosis of acute lung injury or acute respiratory distress syndrome and submitted to mechanical ventilation for over 24h Exclusion Criteria: - mechanical ventilation less than 24h - absence of ALI/ARDS criteria - no neoplasm diagnosis
|Official title||Practice of Mechanical Ventilation in Pediatric Oncologic Patients Diagnosed With Acute Lung Injury / Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome|
|Principal investigator||Rodrigo G Arduini, MD|
|Description||Evaluate adequate mechanical ventilation based on protective ventilation protocols for children available so far. Evaluate and describe the subjects. Evaluate the necessity and outcome of rescue therapies (surfactant, prone position, corticosteroids, alveolar recruitment) Obtain data about ALI/ARDS' etiology, mortality rates and predictive factors related to the outcomes (PICU/ hospital discharge or death)|
