  • ObjectivesTo describe the physiologic mechanisms of ventilator-induced lung injury and to define the major ventilator and host-dependent risk factors that contribute to such injury. Data SourcesBasic science and clinical studies related to ventilator-induced barotrauma and lung pathophysiology. Study SelectionEmphasis on controlled, experimental studies and clinical studies related to specific mechanisms. Data ExtractionPreference given to studies with quantitative end-points to assess damage… CONTINUE READING
