BACKGROUND: Despite their potential interest for clinical management, measurements of respiratory mechanics in patients with acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) are seldom performed in routine practice. We introduced a systematic assessment of respiratory mechanics in our clinical practice. After the first year of clinical use, we retrospectively assessed whether these measurements had any influence on clinical management and physiological parameters associated with clinical outcomes by comparing their value before and after performing the test...

RATIONALE: Spontaneous breathing during mechanical ventilation increases transpulmonary pressure and tidal volume, and worsens lung injury. Intuitively, controlling tidal volume and transpulmonary pressure might limit injury from added spontaneous effort. OBJECTIVES: To test the hypothesis that during spontaneous effort in injured lungs, tidal volume and transpulmonary pressure limitation by volume-controlled ventilation results in less injurious patterns of inflation...

The optimal setting for positive end-expiratory pressure (PEEP) in mechanical ventilation remains controversial in the treatment of acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). The aim of this study was to determine the optimum PEEP level in ARDS, which we defined as the level that allowed the best arterial oxygen delivery (DO2).We conducted a physiological multicenter prospective study on patients who suffering from ARDS according to standard definition and persistent after 6 hours of ventilation. The PEEP was set to 6 cmH2O at the beginning of the test and then was increased by 2 cmH2O after at least 15 min of being stabilized until the plateau pressure achieved 30 cmH2O...

Esophageal balloons are used in the respiratory monitoring of critical care patients. After the esophageal pressure is measured, the corresponding pleural pressure in the thorax can be projected, enabling lung-thorax compliance to be partitioned into chest-wall compliance and lung compliance. The esophageal balloon allows determination of transpulmonary pressures and a correspondingly individually tailored approach to respiratory care, such as patient-specific titration of positive end-expiratory pressure for patients with extrapulmonary acute respiratory distress syndrome...

BACKGROUND: High-frequency oscillatory ventilation (HFOV) has not been shown to be beneficial in the management of moderate-to-severe acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). There is uncertainty about the actual pressure applied into the lung during HFOV. We therefore performed a study to compare the transpulmonary pressure (P L) during conventional mechanical ventilation (CMV) and different levels of mean airway pressure (mPaw) during HFOV. METHODS: This is a prospective randomized crossover study in a university teaching hospital...

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...

Functional residual capacity (FRC) is essentially the alveolar volume and a determinant of both oxygenation and respiratory system compliance (CRS). ARDS decreases FRC, and sufficient PEEP restores FRC; thus, assessments of PEEP by its impact on oxygenation and CRS are intimately linked. PEEP also can ameliorate or aggravate ventilator-induced lung injury. Therefore, it can be argued that PEEP should be titrated primarily by its impact on CRS The pro position argues that the heterogeneous nature of lung injury and its unique presentation in individual patients results in an uncoupling between oxygenation and CRS Therefore, relying upon oxygenation alone may enhance lung injury and mortality risk, particularly in those with severe ARDS...

Acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) is characterized by acute onset respiratory failure with bilateral pulmonary infiltrates and hypoxemia. Current evidence suggests different respiratory mechanics in pulmonary ARDS (ARDSp) and extrapulmonary ARDS (ARDSexp) with disproportionate decrease in lung compliance in the former and chest wall compliance in the latter. Herein, we report two patients of ARDS, one each with ARDSp and ARDSexp that were managed using real-time esophageal pressure monitoring using the AVEA ventilator to tailor the ventilatory strategy...

BACKGROUND: The amount of extracorporeal carbon dioxide removal may influence respiratory drive in acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) patients undergoing extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO). The authors evaluated the effects of different levels of extracorporeal carbon dioxide removal in patients recovering from severe ARDS undergoing pressure support ventilation (PSV) and neurally adjusted ventilatory assist (NAVA). METHODS: The authors conducted a prospective, randomized, crossover study on eight spontaneously breathing ARDS patients undergoing venovenous ECMO since 28 ± 20 days...

BACKGROUND: In sedated and paralyzed children with acute respiratory failure, the compliance of respiratory system and functional residual capacity were significantly reduced compared with healthy subjects. However, no major studies in children with ARDS have investigated the role of different levels of PEEP and tidal volume on the partitioned respiratory mechanic (lung and chest wall), stress (transpulmonary pressure) and strain (inflated volume above the functional residual capacity)...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: The optimal strategy for assessing and preventing ventilator-induced lung injury in the acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) is controversial. Recent investigative efforts have focused on personalizing ventilator settings to individual respiratory mechanics. This review examines the strengths and weaknesses of using transpulmonary pressure measurements to guide ventilator management in ARDS. RECENT FINDINGS: Recent clinical studies suggest that adjusting ventilator settings based on transpulmonary pressure measurements is feasible, may improve oxygenation, and reduce ventilator-induced lung injury...

Groundbreaking research into the pathophysiology of the adult acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) and the prevention of ventilator-induced lung injury has led to dramatic improvements in survival. Investigations over the last two decades have revolved around the development of rescue therapies that can be used for patients with severe ARDS and refractory hypoxemia. To date, the techniques of using high levels of positive end-expiratory pressure (PEEP), prompt institution of neuromuscular blockade, and early prolonged prone positioning have been shown to reduce mortality in patients with severe ARDS...

BACKGROUND: Chest wall mechanics can be abnormal in patients with acute respiratory disease syndrome (ARDS). Therefore, partitioning respiratory system between lungs and chest wall at the bedside is useful to optimize ventilator settings. A non-invasive method for assessing lung elastance (EL), called lung barometry, was previously described on an animal model. METHODS: This prospective study was designed to compare EL assessed by lung barometry (ELLB) versus esophageal pressure (ELPeso)...

INTRODUCTION: Optimal ventilator management for patients with acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) remains uncertain. Lower tidal volume ventilation appears to be beneficial, but optimal management of positive end-expiratory pressure (PEEP) remains unclear. The Esophageal Pressure-Guided Ventilation 2 Trial (EPVent2) aims to examine the impact of mechanical ventilation directed at maintaining a positive transpulmonary pressure (PTP) in patients with moderate-to-severe ARDS. METHODS AND ANALYSIS: EPVent2 is a multicentre, prospective, randomised, phase II clinical trial testing the hypothesis that the use of a PTP-guided ventilation strategy will lead to improvement in composite outcomes of mortality and time off the ventilator at 28 days as compared with a high-PEEP control...
