Critical Care Alert;Dec2016, Vol. 24 Issue 9, p69
The author opines on a study on managing acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) with non-invasive ventilation by G. Bellani and others. The author discusses the association of non-invasive ventilation with lower positive end-expiratory pressure, higher tidal volume and high respiratory frequency. The author concludes that lower arterial oxygen partial pressure to inspired oxygen fraction revealed higher mortality in non-invasive ventilation than in invasive mechanical ventilation.

    Acute respiratory distress syndrome is a pulmonary disease that requires the use of mechanical ventilation for patient recovery. However, this can lead to development of ventilator-induced lung injury caused by the over-distension of alveolar tissue and by the repetitive closure (de-recruitment...
