Positive end-expiratory pressure (PEEP), by increasing lung volume in acute lung injury, may recruit terminal air spaces in the involved regions, but may also distend noninvolved regions increasing extravascular lung water and worsening gas exchange. We investigated the effect of increasing levels of PEEP on arterial oxygenation in 26 anesthesized dogs with… CONTINUE READING
