Pressure-volume curve does not predict steady-state lung volume in canine lavage lung injury.

Abstract

To better understand strategies for recruiting and maintaining lung volume in acute lung injury, we examined relationships between steady-state lung volume and cumulative cyclic recruitment/derecruitment volume history and the quasi-static pressure-volume curve, in an animal saline lavage lung injury model. Small-volume tidal pressure-volume loops performed… (More)
