Successful Treatment of Protein-Losing Enteropathy and Plastic Bronchitis by Biphasic Cuirass Ventilation in a Patient with Failing Fontan Circulation

We present a 16-year-old male patient with hypoplastic left heart syndrome who developed protein-losing enteropathy (PLE) and plastic bronchitis (PB) after a Fontan operation. He received medical therapies, including albumin infusion, unfractionated heparin, and high-dose anti-aldosterone therapy but could not obtain clinical [...]

Long-term ventilation of patients with Duchenne muscular dystrophy: experiences at the Neuromuscular Centre Ulm

The various measures used to treat the symptoms of Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD), i.e. medication with steroids, early operation on contractures and spine deformities as well as cardiac diagnostics and therapy, should always be accompanied by careful monitoring of the patient's respiratory [...]

In this context, respiratory emergencies are often a challenge at home, in a neurology [...]

Intrapulmonary percussive ventilation leading to 20-minutes breath-hold potentially useful for radiation treatments

We developed a training protocol based on Intrapulmonary Percussive Ventilation in order to prolong breath-hold while nearly suppressing the thorax motion. This protocol allowed ten subjects to achieve a 20-minutes-breath-hold, while reducing the residual surface motion to 1 mm around its mean [...]
