Hoover, MD Medical Director, PICU Walter Reed AMC New and Improved Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome Ashbaugh, Lancet, 1967 Adult Respiratory Distress Syndrome To distinguish from neonatal HMD/RDS Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome American­European Consensus conference, 1994 ARDS: New Definition ARDS: New Definition Criteria Acute onset Bilateral CXR infiltrates PA pressure < 18 mm Hg Classification Acute lung injury ­ PaO2 : F1O2 < 300 Acute respiratory distress syndrome ­ PaO2 : F1O2 < 200 1994 American-European Consensus Conference Clinical Disorders Associated with Clinical Disorders Associated with ARDS Direct Injury Common Causes Pneumonia Gastric aspiration Less Common Causes Pulmonary contusion Fat emboli Near drowning Inhalational injury Indirect Injury Common Causes Sepsis Shock after severe trauma Less Common Causes Cardiopulm. bypass Drug overdose Acute pancreatitis Massive blood transfusions The Problem: Lung Injury The Problem: Lung Injury Davis et al., J Peds 1993;123:35 Noninfectious Pneumonia 14% Infectious Pneumonia 28% Cardiac Arrest 12% Hemorrhage 5% Trauma 5% Other 4% Septic Syndrome 32% Etiology In Children ARDS ­ Pathogenesis ARDS ­ Pathogenesis Instigation Endothelial injury: increased permeability of alveolar ­ capillary barrier Epithelial injury : alveolar flood, loss of surfactant, barrier vs. infection Proinflammatory mechanisms ARDS Pathogenesis ARDS Pathogenesis Resolution Equally important Alveolar edema ­ resolved by active sodium transport Alveolar type II cells ­ re­epithelialize Neutrophil clearance needed ARDS ­ Pathophysiology ARDS ­ Pathophysiology Decreased compliance Alveolar edema Heterogenous “Baby Lungs” Phases of ARDS Phases of ARDS Acute ­ exudative, inflammatory (0 ­ 3 days) Subacute ­ proliferative (4 ­ 10 days) Chronic ­ fibrosing alveolitis ( > 10 days) Phases of ARDS Phases of ARDS ARDS ­ Outcomes ARDS ­ Outcomes Most studies ­ mortality 40% to 60% Majority of deaths sepsis or MOD rather than primary respiratory Outcomes similar for adults and children Mortality may be decreasing 53/68 % 39/36 % ARDS ­ Principles of Therapy ARDS ­ Principles of Therapy Provide adequate gas exchange Avoid secondary injury It would seem ironic that the very existence of humans is fully dependent on a gas that, in excess quantities, is toxic and lethal Lynn D. Martin Therapies for ARDS Therapies for ARDS Innovations: iNO PLV Proning Surfactant AntiInflammatory Mechanical Ventilation ARDS Gentle ventilation: Permissive hypercapnia Low tidal volume Open-lung HFOV Extrapulmonary Gas Exchange The Dangers of Overdistention The Dangers of Overdistention Repetitive shear stress inflammatory response air trapping Phasic volume swings: volutrauma Injury to normal alveoli The Dangers of Atelectasis compliance intrapulmonary shunt FiO2 WOB inflammatory response Lung Injury Zones Overdistention 20 10 “Sweet Spot” Atelectasis 0 Lung Volume (ml/kg) 13 33 Ai rw ay Pressu re (cm H 20) 38 “Mechanical” Therapies in ARDS Lower tidal volumes but avoidance of atelectasis with higher PEEP Permissive hypercapnia HFOV Prone positioning Lower Tidal Volumes for ARDS Lower Tidal Volumes for ARDS Multi­center trial, 861 adult ARDS Randomized: Tidal volume 12 cc/kg Plateau pressure < 50 cm H2O vs. Tidal volume 6 cc/kg Plateau pressure< 30 cm H2O ARDS Network, NEJM, 342: 2000 Lower Tidal Volumes for ARDS Lower Tidal Volumes for ARDS 40 22 35 de % s re a c e * Traditional Lower 30 25 Percent 20 * 15 10 5 0 * p < .001 Death Vent free days ARDS Network, NEJM, 342: 2000 Ventilator Goals Ventilator Goals Set the PEEP slightly higher than the lower inflection point Lower tidal volume (generally < 6 mL/kg) Static peak pressure <40 cm H20 Wean oxygen to <60% Permissive Hypercapnia Permissive Hypercapnia Defined: presence of hypercapnia in the setting of a mechanically ventilated patient receiving limited inspiratory pressures and reduced tidal volumes Hickling, Int Care Med, 1990 Physiologic Effects of Physiologic Effects of Hypercapnia RESP: Net effect is improvement in oxygenation by enhancing hypoxic pulmonary vasoconstriction and decreases intrapulmonary shunting Right­shift of oxygen­hemoglobin dissociation curve Physiologic Effects of Physiologic Effects of Hypercapnia CV: Net effect is often hemodynamic compromise Sympathetic stimulation with increased C.O. Increased HR and SV, decreased SVR Intracellular acidosis of cardiomyocyte is reversible when due to hypercarbia compared to metabolic acidosis When combined with high PEEP strategy, can lead to severely decreased preload and cardiovascular compromise Physiologic Effects of Physiologic Effects of Hypercapnia RENAL: Compensatory bicarb reabsorption Acidosis leads to direct renal vasoconstriction Sympathetic­meditated release of norepinephrine (NE) Indirectly, hypercapnia causes a decrease in SVR that in turn releases NE, stimulates the renin­angiotensin­aldosterone system, leading to a further decrease in renal blood flow Permissive Hypercapnia Permissive Hypercapnia Is it worth it? Early adult ARDS trial showed a reduction in expected mortality of 56% to an actual mortality of 26% Hickling, CCM, 1994 Included in adult trauma patients protocol for mechanical ventilation Nathens, J Trauma, 2005 Several pediatric studies showing benefit when used in conjunction with low TV and high PEEP Sheridan, J Trauma, 1995 Paulson, J Pediatr, 1996 Caution in patients with elevated ICP High Frequency High Oscillation: Oscillation: A Whole Lotta Whole Shakin’ Goin’ On Shakin’ It’s not absolute pressure, but volume or pressure swings that promote lung injury or atelectasis.
