The effects of positive end-expiratory pressure (PEEP) on static ("rapid airway occlusion" technique) and dynamic ("constant flow" technique) volume-pressure (V-P) curves were studied in 19 patients(More)
Dynamic hyperinflation and the development of intrinsic positive end-expiratory pressure (PEEPi) are commonly observed in patients with severe chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and acute(More)
In mechanically ventilated patients with acute respiratory failure, the static compliance of the total respiratory system is conventionally obtained by dividing the tidal volume by the difference(More)
