Positive end-expiratory pressure (PEEP) and cerebrospinal fluid pressure during normal and elevated intracranial pressure in dogs


The effect of up to 15 cm H2O positive end-expiratory pressure (PEEP) on cerebrospinal fluid pressure (Pcsf) was investigated in five anaesthetised, mechanically ventilated dogs during normal and then elevated (40–50 cm H2O) intracranial pressure (ICP). Stepwise elevations of PEEP in 5 cm H2O increments resulted in small rises in Pcsf at normal ICP and in… (More)
