Focus on “Respiratory mechanics in mechanically ventilated patients: from physiology to clinical practice at the bedside”

Posted On 2018-11-08 15:26:02

In recent years, the role of protective mechanical ventilation has gained increasing importance in the clinical management of not only patients with acute respiratory distress syndrome, but also in those patients requiring respiratory support for non-pulmonary reasons or during general anesthesia. The knowledge of physiological basics and advanced monitoring of respiratory mechanics, exchange and hemodynamics is mandatory to optimize mechanical ventilation and avoid ventilation-induced lung injury which may negatively affect clinical outcome.
