BACKGROUND Fast dynamic computed tomography (dCT) has been used to assess regional dynamics of lung inflation and deflation processes. The aim of this study was to relate ventilation-induced changes in lung density distribution, as measured over several respiratory cycles by dCT, to oxygenation and shunt fraction in a lavage acute respiratory distress syndrome model. METHODS Six anaesthetized pigs underwent pressure-constant ventilation (FIO2=1.0, inspiratory:expiratory ratio=1:1) before and… CONTINUE READING
