BACKGROUND Alveolar recruitment in response to positive end-expiratory pressure (PEEP) may differ between pulmonary and extrapulmonary acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), and alveolar recruitment values may differ when measured by pressure-volume curve compared with static compliance. METHODS The authors compared PEEP-induced alveolar recruitment in 71 consecutive patients identified in a database. Patients were classified as having pulmonary, extrapulmonary, or mixed/uncertain ARDS… CONTINUE READING
