To study the effects of two levels of positive end-expiratory pressure (PEEP), 2 cmH2O above the lower inflection point of the inspiratory limb and equal to the point of maximum curvature on the expiratory limb of the pressure-volume curve, in gas exchange, respiratory mechanics, and lung aeration. Prospective clinical study in the intensive care unit and computed tomography ward of a university hospital. Eight patients with early acute lung injury. Both limbs of the static pressure-volume… CONTINUE READING
