INTRODUCTION A lower inflection point, an upper inflection (or deflection) point, and respiratory system compliance can be estimated from an inspiratory static pressure-volume (SPV) curve of the respiratory system. Such data are often used to guide selection of positive end-expiratory pressure (PEEP)/tidal volume combinations. Dynamic pressure-volume (DPV) curves obtained during tidal ventilation are effortlessly displayed on modern mechanical ventilator monitors and bear a theoretical but… CONTINUE READING
