Cardiopulmonary interactions during mechanical ventilation in critically ill patients.

Abstract

Cardiopulmonary interactions induced by mechanical ventilation are complex and only partly understood. Applied tidal volumes and/or airway pressures largely mediate changes in right ventricular preload and afterload. Effects on left ventricular function are mostly secondary to changes in right ventricular loading conditions. It is imperative to dissect the… (More)
