  • ObjectiveThe aims of the present study were two-fold: first, to confirm the effect of tracheal gas insufflation (TGI) throughout the respiratory cycle on alveolar ventilation at various catheter flows and constant total inspired VT as an adjunct to conventional volume cycled mechanical ventilation in patients with acute lung injury; second, to test the efficacy of TGI in the reduction of toal VT, peak and mean airway pressure while maintaining PaCO2 in its baseline value. The hemodynamic effect… CONTINUE READING
