High-frequency oscillatory ventilation attenuates oxidative lung injury in a rabbit model of acute lung injury
(Experimental Biology and Medicine, 2011-10-01) [Artigo]
Mechanical ventilation (MV) can induce lung oxidative stress, which plays an important role in pulmonary injury. This study compared protective conventional mechanical ventilation (CMV) and high-frequency oscillatory ...

Comparison between procalcitonin and C-reactive protein for early diagnosis of children with sepsis or septic shock
(Inflammation Research, 2010-08-01) [Artigo]
The objective of the paper is to examine the behavior of C-reactive protein (CRP) and procalcitonin (PCT) in the first 12 h of admission and verify which performs better to differentiate children with septic conditions.Septic ...
Effects of Inhaled Nitric Oxide on Oxidative Stress and Histopathological and Inflammatory Lung Injury in a Saline-Lavaged Rabbit Model of Acute Lung Injury
(Respiratory Care, 2012-02-01) [Artigo]
BACKGROUND: Conventional mechanical ventilation (CMV) is fundamental in acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) treatment. Inhaled nitric oxide (INO), an adjunctive therapy, has been used with ventilation in an attempt ...
Interactive effects of mechanical ventilation, inhaled nitric oxide and oxidative stress in acute lung injury
(Respiratory Physiology & Neurobiology, 2014-01-01) [Artigo]
To compare conventional mechanical ventilation (CMV) and high-frequency oscillatory ventilation (HFOV), with/without inhaled nitric oxide (iNO), for oxygenation, inflammation, antioxidant/oxidative stress status, and DNA ...
