Neurally adjusted ventilatory assist feasibility during anaesthesia: A randomised crossover study of two anaesthetics in a large animal model.


BACKGROUND Spontaneous breathing during mechanical ventilation improves gas exchange by redistribution of ventilation to dependent lung regions. Neurally adjusted ventilatory assist (NAVA) supports spontaneous breathing in proportion to the electrical activity of the diaphragm (EAdi). NAVA has never been used in the operating room and no studies have… (More)
