A group of 36 patients with severe adult respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) meeting previously established blood gas criteria (mortality rate 90%) became candidates for possible extracorporeal respiratory support [low frequency positive pressure ventilation with extracorporeal CO2 removal (LFPPV-ECCO2R)]. Before connecting the patients to bypass we first switched the patients from conventional mechanical ventilation with positive end expiratory pressure (PEEP) to pressure controlled inverted… CONTINUE READING
