Respiratory Distress Syndrome clinical trials at UCLA

1 research study open to eligible people

Showing trials for
  • Spinal Cord Stimulation to Shorten Ventilator Dependence in ARDS Patients

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This is an early phase, proof-of-concept clinical trial assessing the safety and feasibility of non-invasive spinal cord stimulation to prevent respiratory muscle atrophy in mechanically ventilated ARDS patients. The investigators will recruit 10 elective surgery patients (surgery cohort) and 10 ARDS patients (ARDS cohort) for this study. A non-invasive, alpha-prototype Restore Technology stimulator using hydrogel surface electrodes will be used to stimulate the spinal cord at the cervical or thoracic level.
