It may also increase positive end expiratory pressure and end-expiratory volume improving oxygenation [22], with low risk of barotrauma and air trapping.
Positive End Expiratory Pressure - (PEEP) the application and maintenance of supra-atmospheric or positive airway pressure through the expiratory phase of a mechanical breath.
Positive end expiratory pressure (PEEP) and continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) are both used in children with poor ventilation and oxygenation (Bolton & Kline, 1994).
After tracheal intubation, mechanical ventilation was started with volume control ventilation at the following setting: tidal volume (TV) = 7-8 ml/kg (lean body mass), positive end expiratory pressure (PEEP) = 0 cmH2O, inspiratory/expiratory (I/E) ratio = 1:2, FIO2 = 0.45, and Respiratory Rate (RR) = 12/min.
Positive end expiratory pressure (PEEP) or continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) is sometimes indicated during anaesthesia or when patients require ventilation in intensive care (26).
In patients receiving positive end expiratory pressure, a spring-loaded valve should be used with the manual resuscitation bag to keep the end expiratory pressure positive during the procedure.
A manometer was not used with any circuit during manual hyperinflation but a positive end expiratory pressure valve was used for any patient with a positive end expiratory pressure > 7.5 cm[H.sub.2O].
This may in part be influenced by an attempt to maintain positive end expiratory pressure (PEEP) during manual hyperinflation (Savian et al 2005).
