Preventing ventilator-induce lung injury (VILI): Optimizing PEEP titration in ARDS
Fri, 01/17/2020 - 4:00am
Lung-protective mechanical ventilation with low tidal volume and restricted plateau pressure improves survival in ARDS. However, the optimal approach to PEEP titration to minimize VILI is still debated. Should oxygenation, lung compliance, driving pressure or transpulmonary pressure guide adjustment of PEEP in ARDS?
