BACKGROUND Adult respiratory distress syndrome develops in up to 20% of patients with severe head injury. This complicates the treatment of head-injured patients because lung-protective strategies such as high positive end-expiratory pressure (PEEP) and permissive hypercapnia may increase intracranial pressure (ICP) and reduce cerebral perfusion pressure. The use of high-frequency percussive ventilation (HFPV) is an alternate mode of ventilation that may improve oxygenation for head-injured… CONTINUE READING
