Effects of spontaneous breathing during ventilation in ARDS

2019 23 Jan

Previous studies have suggested that the effects of spontaneous breathing during mechanical ventilation in acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) may depend on ARDS etiology and severity, with possible beneficial effects in mild to moderate ARDS and harmful effects in severe ARDS. However, a new analysis did not find an association between ARDS... Read more
