In 16 mechanically ventilated patients with acute lung injury (ALI) (eight patients with moderate ALI [moderate group], eight patients with severe ALI [adult respiratory distress syndrome, ARDS group]) and in eight normal anesthetized-paralyzed subjects (control group), we partitioned the total respiratory system mechanics into the lung (L) and chest wall (w) mechanics using the esophageal balloon technique together with the airway occlusion technique during constant flow inflation. We measured… CONTINUE READING
