The Effects of Positive End-Expiratory Pressure on Transpulmonary Pressure and Recruitment–Derecruitment During Neurally Adjusted Ventilator Assist: A Continuous Computed Tomography Study in an Animal Model of Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome

BackgroundWhether spontaneous breathing (SB) should be used in early acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) is questioned because it may cause ventilator-induced lung injury (VILI) by tidal high strain/stress and recruitment/derecruitment (R/D). However, SB has shown beneficial effects when used...
