Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Dynamic Compliance of the Respiratory System [ Time Frame: Between 5 & 10 minutes before aerosol delivery and 5 to 10 minutes after completion of the aerosol delivery ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Changes in the static and dynamic properties of the respiratory system are surrogate markers of a change in airway tone and/or of the amount and distribution of alveolar edema


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Patient-Ventilator Interactions [ Time Frame: 5 minutes before aersosol delivery, during the 15 minutes while aerosol is being delivered and 5 minutes after completion of the aerosol delivery ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    "Fighting" the ventilator may reflect irritant receptor feedback and related dyspnea and will speak to the feasibility/patient acceptance of the proposed therapy


Other Outcome Measures:
  • Arterial Blood Gas Tension [ Time Frame: Between 5 & 10 minutes before aerosol delivery and 5 to 10 minutes after completion of the aerosol delivery ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Changes in oxygenation and CO2 elimination reflect changes in ventilation-perfusion distribution secondary to changes in bronchomotor tone and/or lung water.

Experimental: Hypertonic Saline Aerosol
a single 5ml dose of 7% Saline aerosol
Drug: Hypertonic Saline Aerosol
A single 5ml dose of 7% Saline aerosol
Other Name: Nebulized hypertonic saline

Detailed Description:

Hypertonic Saline (HS) aerosols have proven efficacious mucolytics in patient with cystic fibrosis and are well tolerated in that population. Safety concerns in mechanically ventilated patients with ALI center primarily on HS's effects on lung water distribution (intra vs. extra alveolar) and on airway reactivity. For that reason we plan a small feasibility trial with narrowly focused physiologic endpoints, namely to measure the effects of a single 5ml dose of 7% Saline aerosol on blood gas tensions, hemodynamics and the static and dynamic properties of the relaxed respiratory system. This narrowly scoped study is to lay the foundation for a larger multicenter intervention trial.
