Partial Liquid Ventilation Versus Conventional Mechanical Ventilation with High PEEP and Moderate Tidal Volume in Acute Respiratory Failure in Piglets

Abstract

This prospective randomized pilot study aimed to test the hypotheses that partial liquid ventilation combined with a high positive end-expiratory pressure (PEEP) and a moderate tidal volume results in improved gas exchange and lung mechanics without negative hemodynamic influences compared with conventional mechanical ventilation in acute lung injury in… (More)
