[The effect of positive end-expiratory pressure (PEEP) on extravascular lung water in intensive care patients].

Abstract

The use of positive end-expiratory pressure (PEEP) has been highly recommended because of its favourable effects on pulmonary gas exchange and circulation. It was the aim of this study to investigate the influence of PEEP on extravascular lung water (EVLW), which was estimated by the thermal-dye technique.
