OBJECTIVE To investigate the value of electrical impedance tomography for the assessment of regional lung mechanics during high-frequency oscillatory ventilation (HFOV). DESIGN Prospective, interventional animal study. SETTING University research laboratory. SUBJECTS Eight pigs with lavage-induced lung injury. INTERVENTIONS Electrical impedance tomography measurements were performed during a pressure-volume maneuver and during a recruitment-derecruitment maneuver on HFOV by stepwise… CONTINUE READING
