Child's Diaphragm Measurement Study for Inpatients
Protocol: STUDY00004985
Full Title
Effects of Negative Pressure Ventilation and High Flow Nasal Cannula support on Diaphragm Contractility in Pediatric Patients with Acute Respiratory Failure
This study enrolls children who are in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit at Oishei Children's Hospital. The purpose of this study is to measure a child's diaphragm when they are having high flow nasal cannula treatment (oxygen delivered through the nose).

We will measure the thickness of your child's diaphragm using a non-invasive chest ultrasound every day until they are off respiratory support or discharged from PICU. The ultrasound will take about 5 minutes each time. Study takes place at Oishei Children's Hospital in Buffalo, NY.
