Tracheal gas insufflation reduces the tidal volume while PaCO2 is maintained constant

Abstract

The 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… (More)
