In mechanically ventilated infants, the diaphragm stays activated until the end of expiration (tonic activity), contributing to EELV maintenance. It is unclear whether tonic activity compensates for the lack of laryngeal braking due to intubation or if it is normally present. OBJECTIVE To determine if tonic diaphragm activity remains after extubation in infants, and if it can be observed in older children… CONTINUE READING
