QUESTION Is ventilator-induced hyperinflation in sidelying more effective than sidelying alone in removing secretions and improving respiratory mechanics in ventilated patients with pulmonary infection? DESIGN Randomised crossover trial with concealed allocation and intention-to-treat analysis. PARTICIPANTS 30 mechanically ventilated patients with pulmonary infection in an adult intensive care unit. INTERVENTION The experimental intervention was 30 minutes of ventilator-induced… CONTINUE READING
