ARDSnet Ventilation Strategy

ARDSnet Ventilation Strategy: Note that the definitions below have recently been revised - however they are included here as they were used in the ARDSNet trial.

Electrical Impedance Tomography

Electrical impedance tomography (EIT) is a noninvasive, radiation-free monitoring tool that allows real-time imaging of ventilation EIT has medium spatial resolution and a very high temporal resolution

Selective Lung Ventilation

Selective Lung Ventilation involves the isolation of one lung from the other allowing independent ventilation. Usually performed with a double lumen tube (DLT); alternatives are the use of a univent tube or an endobronchial blocker

Prone Position and Mechanical Ventilation

Reviewed and revised 19 May 2014 OVERVIEW Prone positioning can be used in mechanically ventilated patients with severe hypoxic respiratory failure to optimise oxygenation most studied  in patients with acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) where short lived improvements in oxygenation…

High airway pressure DDx

High airway pressures in the intubated patient can signify the presence of a life-threatening emergency. The underlying cause is either with the 'man or the machine' (patient versus equipment). A structured approach to this problem is essential.

Adaptive Support Ventilation

Adaptive support ventilation (ASV) is a positive pressure mode of mechanical ventilation that is closed-loop controlled, and automatically adjusts based on the patient's requirements

Protective Lung Ventilation

Protective lung ventilation is the current standard of care for mechanical ventilation. It is synonymous with low tidal volume ventilation (4-8 mL/kg) and often includes permissive hypercapnia
