STUDY OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of i.v. infusion of atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP) on hemodynamics, pulmonary gas exchange, and urine volume during mechanical ventilation with positive end-expiratory pressure (PEEP) in patients with acute lung injury. DESIGN Prospective, randomized, comparable study. SETTING ICU of a university hospital. PATIENTS Forty patients with moderate acute lung injury (lung injury score > or = 2.0) who required mechanical… CONTINUE READING
