  Purpose

The purpose of this study is to analyze whether the treatment of metabolic alkalosis with acetazolamide in intubated patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) or with obesity hypoventilation syndrome (OHS) reduces the length of mechanical ventilation (MV).

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Length of mechanical ventilation [ Time Frame: From intubation date to extubation date, an expected average of 1 week ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Length of intensive care unit stay [ Time Frame: The duration of ICU stay, an expected average less than 2 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • All cause hospital mortality [ Time Frame: Participants will be followed for the duration of hospital stay, an expected average of 3 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Alive or dead status will be recorded at the end of hospital stay

  • Complications associated to the treatment [ Time Frame: During the mechanical ventilation period, an expected average of 1 week ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Plasma and urine analysis will be performed to detect alteration in electrolites or renal function.

Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Acetazolamide Drug: Acetazolamide

Daily morning ABGA:

  • If actual bicarbonate > 26 mmol/L and pH > 7.35: administration of enteral capsule of acetazolamide 500 mg .
  • If actual bicarbonate > 26 mmol/L and pH <= 7.35, increase minute ventilation to reach pH > 7.35 and then administer enteral capsule of acetazolamide 500 mg.
  • If actual bicarbonate <= 26 mmol/L: omit treatment that day.
Other Name: Edemox
Placebo Comparator: placebo Drug: Placebo

Daily morning ABGA:

  • If actual bicarbonate > 26 mmol/L and pH > 7.35: administration of enteral capsule of placebo.
  • If actual bicarbonate > 26 mmol/L and pH <= 7.35, increase minute ventilation to reach pH > 7.35 and then administer enteral capsule of placebo.
  • If actual bicarbonate <= 26 mmol/L: omit treatment that day.

Detailed Description:

Metabolic alkalosis (MA) may reduce central respiratory drive, cardiac output and worsen oxygenation, leading to a delay in weaning from MV. Acetazolamide is a carbonic anhydrase inhibitor that is able to correct MA and to stimulate respiratory drive. There is a paucity of studies on the outcome of patients with MA under MV treated with acetazolamide.

The primary objective of our study is to analyze whether the treatment of MA with acetazolamide in intubated patients with COPD or with OHS reduces the length of MV, reduces the length of ICU stay or ICU mortality. Complications associated with acetazolamide treatment will be also analyzed.

Phase III double-blinded trial, with COPD or OHS patients under MV who have pH > 7,35 and bicarbonate > 28 mEq/L. Patients will be randomized to receive 500 mg of acetazolamide or placebo. According to arterial blood gas analysis (ABGA) values treatment administration will be evaluated daily until extubation.
