Low tidal volume and high positive end-expiratory pressure mechanical ventilation results in increased inflammation and ventilator-associated lung injury in normal lungs.
Individual patient data analysis of tidal volumes used in three large randomized control trials involving patients with acute respiratory distress syndrome.
Protective ventilatory approaches to one-lung ventilation: More than reduction of tidal volume. Curr Anesthesiol Rep 2014;4:150-9.
Tidal hyperinflation during low tidal volume ventilation in acute respiratory distress syndrome.
However, these trials included patients with mild ARDS, the duration of prone positioning each day was short and protective lung ventilation (low tidal volumes) was not used.
Patients assigned to the first group were ventilated with protective VCV with tidal volume set at 7 mL/kg.
The ventilator procedures included pressure-control mode, targeting tidal volume of 6 mL/kg of predicted body weight, and plateau airway pressures less than 40 cm[H.sub.2]O.
A large volume air leak persisted despite low tidal volume ventilation with attempts to reduce the peak pressures as well as the plateau pressures.
Tidal volume limits of 6 mL/kg or less PBW might ensure less mechanical stress on the alveolar-capillary membrane, thus preventing alveolar overdistension and improving alveolar stability.
Air vents built into both the spacer and holding chamber help increase tidal volume and ensure deeper lung penetration.
Tidal volume drives inflammation during mechanical ventilation for viral respiratory infection.
