Right ventricular function and positive pressure ventilation in clinical practice: from hemodynamic subsets to respirator settings

  • 3998 Accesses

Abstract

When used in patients free of previous cardiorespiratory disease, mechanical ventilation with a normal tidal volume does not have any discernible hemodynamic consequences. Conversely, the presence of a pulmonary disease affecting the bronchial tree, lung parenchyma, or both, may induce extreme conditions for mechanical ventilation. In this setting, an adverse hemodynamic effect may seriously complicate respiratory support.
