Control of Ventilation and Oxygenation in Acute Pulmonary Insufficiency
Our views are based in part on our groups experiences which include participation in the care of about 2000 intensive care unit (ICU) patients per year in 3 multidisciplinary general ICUs plus the administration of 45 000 anesthesias per year. In the adult ICU of Presbyterian-University Hospital the proportion of patients requiring prolonged artificial ventilation has increased from about 20% 3 years ago to about 70% in 1971. The techniques we are using are demonstrated in films.
