OBJECTIVE To describe the importance of measuring pressure at the tracheal end of the endotracheal tube during spontaneous breathing with continuous positive airway pressure in order to correctly assess: a) the changes in airway pressure and b) the work imposed by the breathing apparatus. DESIGN Multitrial tests under simulated clinical conditions using a mechanical lung model. SETTING A research laboratory at a university medical center. INTERVENTIONS Spontaneous breathing with… CONTINUE READING
