Resolution of pulmonary edema with variable mechanical ventilation in a porcine model of acute lung injury.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE Resolution of the acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) requires clearance of pulmonary edema. Biologically variable ventilation (BVV) strategies that improve gas exchange, lung mechanics, and inflammatory mediators in ARDS may be beneficial in this regard. We used quantitative computed tomography (CT), a single indicator thermodilution… (More)
