BACKGROUND The spontaneous breathing pattern and its relationship to compliance, resistance, and work of breathing (WOB) has not been examined in patients with acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) or acute lung injury (ALI). Clinically, the ratio of respiratory frequency to tidal volume (f/VT) during spontaneous breathing may reflect adaptation to altered compliance, resistance, and increased WOB. We examined the relationship between f/VT, WOB, and respiratory system mechanics in patients… CONTINUE READING
