TOOLs Trial Summary

This trial will establish if an electronically guided protocol for adjusting oxygen levels can improve patient outcomes in the ICU.

Who is the study for?
This trial is for critically ill patients needing mechanical ventilation for at least a day. It's not suitable for those without research authorization, with conditions like pneumothorax, carbon monoxide poisoning, recent severe heart attacks or those undergoing hyperbaric oxygen therapy or who are pregnant.Check my eligibility
What is being tested?
The study tests an electronic alert system designed to help adjust the level of oxygen given to patients on mechanical ventilators. The goal is to find the right balance and avoid too much or too little oxygen which can be harmful.See study design
What are the potential side effects?
Since this trial involves monitoring and adjusting existing treatments rather than testing new medications, side effects may relate more to potential errors in oxygen levels such as hypoxia (low oxygen) or hyperoxia (high oxygen).

Experimental Treatment
Active Control
Group I: Intervention arm- Oxygen titration with electronic alertsExperimental Treatment1 Intervention
Oxygen titration will be done based on electronic alerts and decisions support tool by Respiratory Therapists, if FiO2=> 0.4 and SpO2 =>94% for more than 45 minutes
Group II: Control Arm- Oxygen titration by one time physician ordersActive Control1 Intervention
Oxygen titration will be done ventilator management guidelines for the medical intensive care unit. Titration is done by one-time orders.

Frequently Asked Questions

These questions and answers are submitted by anonymous patients, and have not been verified by our internal team.

Who meets the requirements to participate in this research endeavor?

"The trial is open to 300 participants aged 18 or over who require mechanical ventilation for no fewer than 24 hours. Specifically, the subjects must be critically ill and in need of ventilatory support."

Answered by AI

Are any slots available to members of the public for this investigation?

"Affirmative. Clinical Trials' database reflects that this medical trial, which was first uploaded on the 5th of January 2021, is actively seeking participants. 300 patients need to be gathered from a single location for this study's completion."

Answered by AI

What is the current enrolment size for this study?

"Affirmative. The clinical trial registry shows that as of 8/30/2022, this study is still enrolling participants who were first invited to join on 1/5/2021. 300 patients must be recruited from one site for the experiment to proceed."

Answered by AI

Does this trial include enrollees of a youthful age bracket?

"The scope of this study is limited to individuals between 18 and 100 years old."
