    Effect of Ultrasound-Guided Thoracocentesis on Clinical and Physiological Outcomes in Mechanically Ventilated Patients
    Author(s): Mona AmmarMona Ammar

    Background: Pleural effusions are common in critically ill patients, causes are multifactorial. Mechanical ventilation and critical illness lead to disturbance of the normal physiological processes which regulate pleural fluid homeostasis. Ultrasound can detect small volume of pleural effusion up to 20 mL. Aim of the work: We investigated the influence of large pleural effusion drainage on oxygenation, hemodynamics, and respiratory mechanics in mechanically ventilated patients. Methodology: We performed a prospective observational study on 65 mechanically ventilated patients examining the effects of large pleural fluid drainage on oxygenation; PaO2/FiO2 and Respiratory mechanics; peak inspiratory pressures, plateau pressures, dynamic compliance and total PEEP. Hemodynamics and complications also recorded at baseline, 6 h.. Read More»
