Neurally adjusted ventilatory assist (NAVA) is a ventilation assist mode that delivers pressure in proportionality to electrical activity of the diaphragm (Eadi). Compared to pressure support ventilation (PS), it improves patient-ventilator synchrony and should allow a better expression of patient's intrinsic respiratory variability. We hypothesize that NAVA provides better matching in ventilator tidal volume (Vt) to patients inspiratory demand. 22 patients with acute respiratory failure, ventilated with PS were included in the study. A comparative study was carried out between PS and NAVA, with NAVA gain ensuring the same peak airway pressure as PS. Robust coefficients of variation (CVR) for Eadi and Vt were compared for each mode. The integral of Eadi (sh{phonetic}Eadi) was used to represent patient's inspiratory demand. To evaluate tidal volume and patient's demand matching, Range90 = 5-95 % range of the Vt/sh{phonetic}Eadi ratio was calculated, to normalize and compare differences in demand within and between patients and modes. In this study, peak Eadi and sh{phonetic}Eadi are correlated with median correlation of coefficients, R > 0.95. Median sh{phonetic}Eadi, Vt, neural inspiratory time (Ti_ <br /> Neural), inspiratory time (Ti) and peak inspiratory pressure (PIP) were similar in PS and NAVA. However, it was found that individual patients have higher or smaller sh{phonetic}Eadi, Vt, Ti_ <br /> Neural, Ti and PIP. CVR analysis showed greater Vt variability for NAVA (p < 0.005). Range90 was lower for NAVA than PS for 21 of 22 patients. NAVA provided better matching of Vt to sh{phonetic}Eadi for 21 of 22 patients, and provided greater variability Vt. These results were achieved regardless of differences in ventilatory demand (Eadi) between patients and modes. © 2012 Springer Science+Business Media New York. [less ▲]

En estos últimos años, dentro de los temas emergentes de mayor interés para los antropólogos, y más específicamente para aquellos que trabajan con poblaciones amerindias, dos sobresalen: los procesos de escritura, y los de patrimonialización de la cultura inmaterial. Raros son los estudios que se centran específicamente en la relación del patrimonio con la escritura. Este libro pretende contribuir a este aspecto, discutiendo la relación entre los procesos de patrimonialización y los procesos de la escritura en las sociedades amerindias. [less ▲]

ABSTRACT: BACKGROUND: Recurrent airway obstruction (RAO, also known as equine heaves) is an inflammatory condition caused by exposure of susceptible horses to organic dusts in hay. The immunological processes responsible for the development and the persistence of airway inflammation are still largely unknown. Hypoxia-inducible factor (Hif) is mainly known as a major regulator of energy homeostasis and cellular adaptation to hypoxia. More recently however, Hif also emerged as an essential regulator of innate immune responses. Here, we aimed at investigating the potential involvement of Hif1-alpha in myeloid cells in horse with recurrent airway obstruction. RESULTS: In vitro, we observed that Hif is expressed in equine myeloid cells after hay dust stimulation and regulates genes such as tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-alpha), interleukin-8 (IL-8) and vascular endothelial growth factor A (VEGF-A). We further showed in vivo that airway challenge with hay dust upregulated Hif1-alpha mRNA expression in myeloid cells from the bronchoalveolar lavage fluid (BALF) of healthy and RAO-affected horses, with a more pronounced effect in cells from RAO-affected horses. Finally, Hif1-alpha mRNA expression in BALF cells from challenged horses correlated positively with lung dysfunction. CONCLUSION: Taken together, our results suggest an important role for Hif1-alpha in myeloid cells during hay dust-induced inflammation in horses with RAO. We therefore propose that future research aiming at functional inactivation of Hif1 in lung myeloid cells could open new therapeutic perspectives for RAO. [less ▲]

ife of a spirit in a broken body. The magic stones of Zapara’s ancestors in Lowland Amazonia : subjects of the past. The use of magic stones in the Amazon has been studied by many ethnographers. However, the analysis of the intersubjective relations that occur between these stones and their « master » remains succinct. The example of the stones of the Zapara offers an understanding of these relations. The ancestors of the Ecuadorian Zapara (Amazonia) left on the land many stones that, when found by humans, become subjects to be treated as such. Stones of the ancestors with whom they share a history, are passed on from generation to generation, directly or indirectly. This article tells the story of a spirit embodied in a stone whose story has been reconstructed by the Zapara through its description and narrations. Possessed by an ancestor then passed on to his descendants, this « stone subject » then lost its mineral body, which then modified the relation between the stone and its master. [less ▲]

The monofrequency forced oscillation technique (MFOT) has been found to be a simple, reproducible, fast and accurate method to carry out lung function testing in calves even under field conditions. If some technical as well as methodological requirements are taken into account, pulmonary or respiratory resistance can be assessed by means of the parameter oscillatory resistance (Ros). Furthermore, several Ros derived parameters are available for describing the functional status of the central bronchial system. Due to the low variability caused by methodological or intraindividual reasons, the MFOT represents a very qualified method for intraindividual studies. Comparing measuring results of different subjects, a higher biologically caused variance has to be taken into account. [less ▲]
