UNLABELLED In acute lung injury, airway pressure release ventilation (APRV) with superimposed spontaneous breathing improves gas exchange compared with controlled mechanical ventilation. However, the release of airway pressure below the continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) level may provoke lung collapse. Therefore, we compared gas exchange and hemodynamics using a crossover design in nine pigs with oleic acid-induced lung injury during CPAP breathing and APRV with a release pressure… CONTINUE READING
