    Pneumatic performance of the boussignac CPAP system in healthy humans2011In: Respiratory care, ISSN 0020-1324, E-ISSN 1943-3654, Vol. 56, no 6, p. 818-826Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    BACKGROUND: The Boussignac CPAP has been found to effectively treat acute pulmonary oedema. However, data on airway pressure in association with the Boussignac CPAP are sparse. We therefore designed this study to evaluate the stability of the Boussignac CPAP in terms of maintaining adequate inspiratory and expiratory pressure levels. We also wanted to evaluate the perceived exertion when breathing with the Boussignac CPAP.

    METHODS: Continuous recordings of airway pressure and airflow were made in 18 healthy volunteers during breathing with the Boussignac CPAP at 5, 7.5 and 10 cm H₂O for three sessions of 10 minutes at each CPAP level. Participants were blinded for the sequential order of the investigated CPAP levels. They terminated each session, at the respective CPAP level, by taking 10 forced breaths.

    RESULTS: During 10 minutes normal breathing periods, when participants breathed at 20 % of their VC with a peak expiratory airflow of 14 % of FEV₁, the maximal pressure difference was 4.0 cm H₂O between inspiration and expiration at CPAP 10 cm H₂O. Changes in airway pressure were never large enough to reduce airway pressure below zero. When taking forced breaths, expiratory volume was 38-42 % of VC and peak expiratory airflow was 49-56 % of FEV ₁. As airflow increased, both the drop in inspiratory airway pressure and the increase in expiratory airway pressure were enhanced.

    CONCLUSIONS: Pressure changes during breathing with CPAP are considered to be associated with increased work of breathing. The pneumatic performance of the Boussignac CPAP is adequate during normal breathing with low airflow. However, during forced breathing resulting in increased airflow, the Boussignac CPAP is unable to maintain stable airway pressure levels, possibly resulting in increased work of breathing and respiratory fatigue. Thus, the Boussignac CPAP system might be less suitable for patients breathing at a higher frequency.

    Inspiratory Capacity as an Indirect Measure of Immediate Effects of Positive Expiratory Pressure and CPAP Breathing on Functional Residual Capacity in Healthy Subjects2015In: Respiratory care, ISSN 0020-1324, E-ISSN 1943-3654, Vol. 60, no 10, p. 1486-1494Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    BACKGROUND: Positive expiratory pressure (PEP) and CPAP are used to enhance breathing parameters such as functional residual capacity (FRC) in patients. Studies comparing effects of PEP and CPAP on FRC are few and variable. One reason for this may be that sophisticated equipment, not suitable in the clinical setting, is required. Because total lung capacity (TLC) consists of inspiratory capacity (IC) and FRC, a change in IC should result in a corresponding change in FRC given constant TLC. We aimed to evaluate the effects of different PEP and CPAP devices on IC as an indirect measure of induced changes in FRC from these devices in healthy subjects. METHODS: Twenty healthy subjects breathed with 2 PEP devices, a PEP mask (flow resistor) and a PEP bottle (threshold resistor), and 2 CPAP devices, a flow resistor and a threshold resistor, in a randomized order. The measurement sequence consisted of 30 breaths with an IC measurement performed before and immediately after the 30th breath while the subjects were still connected to the breathing device. Perceived exertion of the 30 breaths was measured with the Borg category ratio 10 scale. RESULTS: Three of the 4 breathing devices, the PEP mask and the 2 CPAP devices, significantly decreased IC (P <.001). Median perceived exertion was quite low for all 4 breathing devices, but the difference in perceived exertion among the different breathing devices was large. CONCLUSIONS: Provided that TLC is constant, we found that measurements of changes in IC could be used as an indirect measure of changes in FRC in healthy subjects. All investigated breathing devices except the PEP bottle decreased IC, as an indirect measure of increased FRC.

    Physiological responses to positive expiratory pressure breathing: a comparison of the PEP bottle and the PEP mask2007In: Respiratory care, ISSN 0020-1324, E-ISSN 1943-3654, Vol. 52, no 8, p. 1000-1005Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    BACKGROUND: In the intensive care unit we have observed that patients have different adherence to 2 commonly used positive-expiratory-pressure (PEP) therapy devices: the PEP bottle and the PEP mask. The reason for this difference is not clear. METHODS: In a randomized prospective study, we made continuous recordings of airway pressure and airflow, with 20 healthy volunteers, with the PEP bottle and the PEP mask. The measurement sequence consisted of 3 sessions of 10 breaths with the PEP bottle and the PEP mask, in a randomized crossover design. A rest period of 15 min separated the PEP bottle and PEP mask measurements. RESULTS: With the PEP bottle the expiratory phase began with a zero-flow period of 0.39 s, during which airway pressure rose 11.9 cm H2O. With the PEP bottle the mean expiratory pressure was 11.7 cm H2O, and end-expiratory pressure was 9.5 cm H2O. With the PEP mask the initial expiratory zero-flow period was almost nonexistent (0.04 s) and without any change in airway pressure. With the PEP mask the shape of the expiratory pressure curve was different; mean expiratory pressure was 8.6 cm H2O, and end-expiratory pressure was zero. With the PEP bottle the inspiration also began with a zero-flow period of 0.43 s, during which airway pressure decreased 9.6 cm H2O from the end-expiratory airway pressure. With the PEP mask the initial inspiratory zero-flow period was only 0.01 s and there was no concomitant change in airway pressure. CONCLUSIONS: The PEP bottle and the PEP mask showed major differences in the relationship between airflow and airway pressure. These findings might explain the observed differences in patient adherence to these therapies.
