ABSTRACT: Adult respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) is a critical medical problem in which severe arterial hypoxemia is often poorly responsive to conventional modes of mechanical ventilation. We studied the efficiency of mechanical ventilation of the peritoneal cavity in rabbits with experimental ARDS caused by lung lavage. The study shows that peritoneal ventilation is significantly effective in oxygenation of hypoxemic animals with ARDS and is also effective for carbon dioxide elimination… CONTINUE READING
