The characteristics of the continuously-recorded mechanical power and its associated clinical outcomes in medical patients with respiratory failure (CORE POWER) study: The protocol of prospective observation study
Keywords:Mechanical power, Ventilator-induced lung injury, Mechanical ventilation, Respiratory failure, Critically ill
Background: The amount of energy delivered from the ventilator applied to the lungs within a given timeframe, is defined as mechanical power (MP). Recently, low MP is one of the new concepts in lung-protective ventilation strategies that may associate with survival benefit. However, measuring MP requires additional calculations not being carried-out in usual clinical care and the reports about MP were mostly a cross-sectional data. The real-time changes or dynamic data of MP was scarcely reported. Our objective is to investgate the association between the dynamic changes of MP and clinical outcomes in critically ill patients.
Methods: This will be a prospective, observational study performed in a single center. Adult patients admitted to medical intermediate and intensive care units who requiring invasive mechanical ventilation will be consecutively enrolled. The patients’ ventilators will be connected to the specific investigator’s computer system for continuously real-time data recording for at least 24 hours. The primary outcome is in-hospital mortality.
Hypothesis: We hypothesize that excessive mechanical power during mechanical ventilation contributes to ventilator-induced lung injury, thus real-time continuously mechanical power monitoring may reduce adverse events associated with mechanical ventilation.
Ethic: The study protocol has been approved by the Institution Review Board of Ramathibodi Hospital, Mahidol University, Thailand (No. MURA2021/680).
