The cardiovascular effects of positive end-expiratory pressure (PEEP) were studied in mechanically ventilated, vagotomized, Beta-blocked, anesthetized dogs. To compensate for the effect of PEEP on decreasing systemic venous return, acute plasma volume expansion was accomplished returning stroke volume and cardiac output to control values. Left and right ventricular filling pressures (LVFP and RVFP) and aortic pressure were measured relative to pressure (transmural pressure). Ventricular… CONTINUE READING
