Grand Rounds November 2009

  1. 1. Sarah M. McMullen, R5 CCM Tuesday November 3, 2009 This presentation has been adapted to enhance online viewing
  2. 2.  to review the benefits of allowing preserved spontaneous breathing in acute respiratory failure, emphasizing ALI/ARDS  to review partial ventilatory support modalities used in acute respiratory failure  to present the results of a systematic review
  3. 3.  Acute inflammatory lung injury › resulting from direct or indirect pulmonary insult  American-European Consensus Conference (1994) definitions: › ALI  Acute pulmonary failure with PaO2/FiO2 <300mmHg  Bilateral infiltrates on chest film  PCWP <18 mmHg, or no clinical evidence of elevated LAP › ARDS  as above, with PaO2/FiO2 <200mmHg, regardless of PEEP
  4. 4. The Lancet 2007
  5. 5.  EARLY › Exudative: infiltration, activation of inflammatory cells  endothelial injury, capillary disruption, pulmonary oedema › Proliferative: fibroblastic infiltration and remodelling  LATE › Fibrotic: consolidation, fibrosis  stiff lungs
  6. 6.  Alveolar collapse › Superimposed pressure on the lung › Cephalad shift of diaphragm  Diffuse lung consolidation, multifocal patchy involvement and lobar or segmental disease  Primarily in DEPENDANT lung regions › Ventilation and perfusion are no longer matched › Severe arterial hypoxaemia
  7. 7. Gattinoni et al JAMA 1994
  8. 8.  Open Lung Approach: PEEP, low tidal volume, static peak pressures, permissive hypercapnia  Adjuncts: prone position, inverse ratio, iNO, tracheal insufflation, HFO, liquid ventilation, ECMO, pharmacologics
  9. 9.  Haemodynamics  Monitoring  Gastrointestinal  Renal  CNS  Weakness  Immune system  Sleep
  10. 10.  Barotrauma  Heterogeneous ventilation  Physiologic dead space and shunt  Diaphragm and respiratory muscles disuse, atrophy  Mucociliary dysmotility  Ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP)  Ventilator-associated lung injury (VALI)
  11. 11. VILI/VALI The Lancet 2003 VENTILATOR ASSOCIATED LUNG INJURY: COMPONENTS VOLUTRAUMA overdistension (High EIV) ATELECTRAUMA damage shear injury BIOTRAUMA inflammatory mediator-related BAROTRAUMA injury high pressure damage OXYGEN TOXICITY
  12. 12.  Early institution of modes allowing spontaneous breathing (SB) helps mitigate complications associated with controlled mechanical ventilation (MV)  Physiologic and haemodynamic benefits are associated with preserved SB
  13. 13.  Improved VA/Q matching, gas exchange › By allowing contraction of the diaphragm › Improved ventilation of dependant areas  better V/Q matching, less atalectasis and shunt  Improved cardiac indices: CO, CI, and less use of vasopressors/inotropes  No increase to oxygen cost of breathing  Less analgo-sedative drugs
  14. 14.  Pressure Support  SIMV  APRV – airway pressure release ventilation  PAV – proportional assist ventilation  NAVA – neurally adjusted ventilatory assist
  15. 15.  Gold standard of partial ventilatory support  Can be used in early ARF and during weaning  The patient’s inspiratory effort triggers the ventilator, which delivers a flow up to a preset pressure limit depending on the desired minute volume › Note: the pressure delivered is independent of the amount of patient effort  Flow cycles off when a percentage of peak inspiratory flow is reached.  Tidal volumes vary as in spontaneous breathing
  16. 16.  Developed as a method of partial ventilatory support to facilitate weaning  A demand valve was placed so the spontaneous breath could occur without having to breathe through the various valves and apparatus of the ventilator.  The patient could breathe spontaneously while also receiving mandatory breaths.  As the patient’s respiratory function improved, the number of mandatory breaths was decreased
  17. 17. emedicine
  18. 18.  Continuous positive airway pressure with an intermittent release phase  Phigh for a prolonged time (Thigh): adequate lung volume, alveolar recruitment  Time-cycled release phase to Plow for a short time (Tlow): CO2 removal (ventilation)  Unrestricted spontaneous breathing allowed at any time
  19. 19. emedicine
  20. 20.  Mode of ventilation during which the pressure delivered by the ventilator was positively related to the inspired flow and volume › i.e., pressure in proportion to patient effort  Preset PROPORTION between applied pressure and inspiratory muscle effort › Proportionality constants in the equation of motion dictate how much the applied pressure will increase for a given increase in inspiratory muscle effort
  21. 21. emedicine
  22. 22.  NAVA uses the electrical activity of the diaphragm (EAdi) to control the ventilator  Eadi represents the central respiratory drive and reflects the length and intensity of the patient's neural effort.  Mechanical inspiratory assist starts when the respiratory center initiates the breath and is therefore independent of any pneumatic component.  During inspiration, the pressure delivered is proportional to the EAdi and the inspiratory pressure assist ceases when the neural activation of the diaphragm starts to decline after reaching the inspiratory maximum value.
  23. 23.  Respiratory failure requiring mechanical ventilation remains one of the most common reasons for admission to an Intensive Care Unit (ICU).  Mechanical ventilation aims to restore gas exchange and to unload the work of breathing.  The adverse effects associated with controlled ventilation are being increasingly recognized, including haemodynamic compromise, the need for deep sedation and/or muscle paralysis and VALI.
  24. 24.  Hypothesis › In contrast to controlled ventilation, partial ventilatory support modes allow the preservation of spontaneous breathing efforts by the intubated patient, and contractions of the diaphragm, which may mitigate the adverse effects of controlled mechanical ventilation.
  25. 25.  Objectives: To investigate: › which modes of ventilation allow preserved spontaneous breathing during mechanical ventilation, and which of these modes have been investigated? › what are the beneficial effects of preserved spontaneous breathing during mechanical ventilation in acute lung injury, and what are the effects on outcomes? › what evidence exists (and of what level is it) that the use of partial ventilatory support in acute lung injury improves outcomes?
  26. 26.  search strategy keywords: › common known modalities of assisted breathing › ALI/ARDS  MEDLINE, Cochrane, and EmBase electronic databases searched for articles in English, French and German.  Reference lists from comprehensive reviews, observational studies and identified clinical trials were hand-searched.  EXCLUDED: Studies pertaining to weaning, chronic ventilation, non-invasive, ECMO.
  27. 27. Modified Oxford Centre for Evidence- Based Medicine Levels of Evidence System 1a Multicentre RCT/Meta-Analysis/SR 1b Good individual RCT of RCTs 2a SR of cohort studies or missing 2b Prospective cohort/lower quality criteria for SR in RCTs 3a SR of RCT case control studies or missing criteria for SR in cohort studies 3b Retrospective cohort/case control 4a Case study series/low quality 3b study 4b Clinical/observational study 5 Experimental animal study 6a Comprehensive review of the literature without documented 6b Expert opinion/case report/ methodology technical note
  28. 28.  Airway pressure release, pressure support, proportional assist, and synchronized intermittent mandatory ventilatory modes were most commonly investigated.  Only nine studies involving 664 patients reported predefined outcomes: 2 RCTs (Grade 1b), 6 Grade 2b studies, 1 3b study
  29. 29.  28 animal and 41 observational clinical studies consistently demonstrated findings of improved haemodynamics and gas exchange, without increased oxygen cost of breathing.  Six grade 2b studies demonstrated the same positive physiologic effects;  No study compared two different partial ventilatory modes, and none were powered to assess mortality.
  30. 30.  30 Trauma patients at risk of ARDS; APRV vs PCV  Mortality: not reported  ICU LOS: 23+/-2d vs 30+/-2d (p<0.05) APRV vs PCV  VFDs: 15 +/-2d vs 21 +/-2d, APRV vs PCV (p<0.05)  APRV associated with increased CRS, PaO2, CI, DO2 (p<0.05); decreased QVA/QT, O2 extraction (p<0.05)  pts with PCV needed higher doses of sufentanil, midazolam, norepinephrine, dobutamine (all p<0.05).
  31. 31.  APRV vs SIMV+PS in 58 adult pts with early ARDS  Mortality: 17% APRV vs 18% SIMV (p=0.91) › BUT: underpowered, stopped early for futility  ICU-Free days: 11.9+/-1.7 vs 10.7+/-1.4 (APRV vs SIMV)  VFDs: 13.4+/-1.7 vs 12.2+/-1.5 for APRV vs SIMV-PS  Inspiratory pressure 25.9+/-0.6 vs 28.6+/-0.7 cmH20 for APRV vs SIMV-PS (p=0.007)  improved organ function: SOFA-score decreased by 2.8 +/-0.8 vs 1.7+/-0.2 (APRV vs SIMV)  LIS decreased 0.8+/-0.1 vs 0.6+/-0.2 (APRV vs SIMV)
  32. 32.  While unorthodox to include an expansive range of study designs and publication types within a systematic review, the scope was kept broad due to lack of volume of high quality studies, and there was no intention to undertake any statistical analysis.
  33. 33.  Despite benefits of preserved spontaneous breathing consistently shown in clinical and experimental data, › the anticipated effects on outcomes in acute respiratory failure and ALI/ARDS are not supported by high levels of evidence › but it is unknown whether this disparity mirrors clinical practice.
  34. 34.  Survey of Intensivists’ practices for ventilatory management in ALI/ARDS  Pilot study, RCT…?
