Intrinsic positive end-expiratory pressure (PEEPi) is routinely determined under static conditions by occluding the airway at end-expiration (PEEPi,stat), the resulting plateau pressure representing the average PEEPi present within a nonhomogeneous lung. In contrast, PEEPi can also be evaluated dynamically (PEEPi,dyn) by recording the change in pressure… CONTINUE READING
