Spontaneous effort causes occult pendelluft during mechanical ventilation.
RATIONALE In normal lungs, local changes in pleural pressure (P(pl)) are generalized over the whole pleural surface. However, in a patient with injured lungs, we observed (using electrical impedanceExpand

Real-time detection of pneumothorax using electrical impedance tomography*
Objectives:Pneumothorax is a frequent complication during mechanical ventilation. Electrical impedance tomography (EIT) is a noninvasive tool that allows real-time imaging of regional ventilation.Expand

Spontaneous Effort During Mechanical Ventilation: Maximal Injury With Less Positive End-Expiratory Pressure*
Objectives:We recently described how spontaneous effort during mechanical ventilation can cause “pendelluft,” that is, displacement of gas from nondependent (more recruited) lung to dependent (lessExpand

Bedside Estimation of Nonaerated Lung Tissue Using Blood Gas Analysis*
Objectives:Studies correlating the arterial partial pressure of oxygen to the fraction of nonaerated lung assessed by CT shunt yielded inconsistent results. We systematically analyzed thisExpand

Quantitative Dual-Energy Computed Tomography Predicts Regional Perfusion Heterogeneity in a Model of Acute Lung Injury
Objective The aims of this study were to investigate the ability of contrast-enhanced dual-energy computed tomography (DECT) for assessing regional perfusion in a model of acute lung injury, usingExpand
