Mortality and pulmonary mechanics in relation to respiratory system and transpulmonary driving pressures in ARDS

Elias Baedorf Kassis, Stephen H Loring, Daniel Talmor
PURPOSE: The driving pressure of the respiratory system has been shown to strongly correlate with mortality in a recent large retrospective ARDSnet study. Respiratory system driving pressure [plateau pressure-positive end-expiratory pressure (PEEP)] does not account for variable chest wall compliance. Esophageal manometry can be utilized to determine transpulmonary driving pressure. We have examined the relationships between respiratory system and transpulmonary driving pressure, pulmonary mechanics and 28-day mortality...
