BACKGROUND Increasing respiratory rate has recently been proposed to improve CO2 clearance in patients with acute respiratory failure who are receiving mechanical ventilation. However, the efficacy of this strategy may be limited by deadspace ventilation, and it might induce adverse hemodynamic effects related to dynamic hyperinflation. SETTING An intensive care unit of a university hospital. PATIENTS We studied 14 patients with acute respiratory failure during the adjustment of ventilator… CONTINUE READING
