Introduction: A severe asthma exacerbation is called status asthmaticus when symptoms worsen despite conventional medical treatment in the hospital. If arterial blood gas ABG values deteriorate and this is accompanied by respiratory muscle fatigue, the patient will require mechanical ventilation. However, mechanical ventilation of the severe asthmatic presents difficult challenges. Case study: We report on High Frequency Percussive Ventilation HFPV used along with continuous inhaled albuterol and neuromuscular blockade, as rescue therapy for a case of acute, severe asthma that was refractory to conventional treatment and conventional mechanical ventilation.

A 3 year-old child was brought to the emergency room and exhibited apparent central cyanosis. She breathed labouredly and rapidly. The attack was unable to be halted even in upright position and by using her inhaler. At what age do people get asthma?

This case study is an excellent example of how different types of parties can be brought together in a large scale transaction and how the original energy of those early meetings can be lost over time. I imagine that when Anthony Athanas was purchasing those old piers back in the s many, if not all, of his colleagues, friends, and family members told him that he was off his rocker. One of the items I wish the case would have divulged is the amount of money that Athanas had invested in the properties.
