Abstract

Recent reports revealed that lower respiratory driving pressure is associated with better ARDS patients survival during invasive mechanical ventilation and less pulmonary complications in surgical patients and at risk ICU patients without ARDS, makes the best understanding of this subject primordial for the future application of mechanical ventilatory support.
