OBJECTIVE To assess the effects of recruitment maneuvers (RMs) with low tidal volume (V(T)) ventilation on gas oxygenation and reduction of ventilation-associated lung injury (VALI) in patients suffering from acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), to assess the effects of RMs on blood pressure, heart rate and occurrence of barotrauma. METHODS Patients in intensive care unit (ICU) of Beijing Fuxing Hospital were randomized into two groups: low V(T)+RM group and low V(T) without RM group… CONTINUE READING
