lung-protective strategy

lung-protective strategy

, lung-protective ventilatory strategy
In patients treated with mechanical ventilation, the use of tidal volumes of 6 mL/kg of predicted body weight or less for each machine-generated breath. Higher tidal volumes have been consistently associated with increased mortality in patients with acute lung injuries and acute respiratory distress syndrome.

Finally, the ventilation achieves optimum tidal volume and respiratory frequency by automatically adjusting the inspiratory rate while applying lung-protective strategy rules.
