About

The aim of this study is to compare the diameter of accessory respiratory muscles in patients with respiratory diseases and patients without such diseases, and to determine whether there is a connection between the ultrasound-measured thickness of accessory respiratory muscles and time of mechanical ventilation, as well as whether there is a the connection between the measured thickness and the treatment outcome of patients in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU).

Full description

An informed consent for the study was obtained from Ethics Committee, Osijek University Hospital, and Medical Faculty. Each patient will sign an informed consent prior to the inclusion into the prospective observational study. In all patients, the thickness of the sternocleidomastoid muscle (SCM), trapezius muscle (TM), and quadriceps femoris (QF) muscle will be measured. A measurement point is in the middle of each muscle. The diameter of each muscle will be measured three times, and the average of the three measurements will be calculated. In each patient hours of mechanical ventilation, and total time in the ICU will be recorded. Patients' comorbidities, ie. hypertension, cardiac diseases, diabetes, and other metabolic disorders, history of stroke, disabilities, as well as procedures done will be registered. A Pearson's or Spearman's correlation will be used to calculate connections between specific parameters.

Trial design

60 participants in 1 patient group

ICU patients without an with chronic respiratory diseases
Description:
The group will consist of >50 patients admitted to the intensive care unit, of which at least 20 with chronic respiratory diseases. Patients of both sexes, patients with and without chronic respiratory diseases, and also patients requiring mechanical ventilation were included and their demographic characteristics and outcomes registered. All patients will sign an informed consent form before inclusion in the prospective observational study.
Treatment:
Device: Mindray TE7 ultrasound machine
