BACKGROUND Mechanical ventilation is a cornerstone in the management of acute respiratory failure. Both volume-targeted and pressure-targeted ventilations are used, the latter modes being increasingly used. We provide a narrative review of the physiologic principles of these two types of breath delivery, performed a literature search, and analyzed published comparisons between modes. METHODS We performed a systematic review and meta-analysis to determine whether pressure control-continuous… CONTINUE READING
