Left ventricular diastolic function during short-term positive end-expiratory pressure ventilation in dogs.

Abstract

Simultaneous recordings of left ventricular (LV) pressure and volume (sonomicrometry) were made in acutely instrumented dogs anaesthetized with pentobarbital during intermittent positive pressure ventilation with zero and positive end-expiratory pressure at 10 and 20 cmH2O (PEEP10 and PEEP20). Pericardial pressure was measured continuously in order to… (More)
