Failure of cardiac output during PEEP ventilation has been recognized for a long time [1]. Because any increase in intrathoracic pressure enhances the back pressure for venous return, a reduction in preload has been put forward as the main mechanism. Accordingly, restoration of preload by volume expansion was a rational therapeutic approach and actually gave proof of its capacity to correct this hemodynamic disorder [2]. The experimental results reported by Berglund et al. in their study are… CONTINUE READING
