A practical protocol for titrating "optimal" PEEP in acute lung injury: recruitment maneuver and PEEP decrement.

Abstract

This study was conducted to evaluate the effectiveness and safety of a practical protocol for titrating positive end-expiratory pressure (PEEP) involving recruitment maneuver (RM) and decremental PEEP. Seventeen consecutive patients with acute lung injury who underwent PEEP titration were included in the analysis. After baseline ventilation, RM (continuous… (More)
