To investigate whether chest-wall mechanics could affect the total respiratory system pressure-volume (P-V) curve in patients with acute respiratory failure (ARF), and particularly the lower inflection point (LIP) of the curve, we drew the total respiratory system, lung, and chest-wall P-V curves (P-Vrs, P-VL, and P-VW, respectively) for 13 patients with ARF, using the supersyringe method together with the esophageal balloon technique. Measurements were randomly repeated at four different… CONTINUE READING
