His chest X-ray showed bilateral hyperinflated lungs suggesting airtrapping. CT of the chest showed an intratracheal growth about 4 cm above the carina almost completely obstructing the lumen.
Since there was preoperative evidence of airtrapping, ventilator settings were set to an I:E ration of 1:3 with a tidal volume of 550ml, respiratory rate of 12-14 per minute and PEEP of 4.
If infants are tachypnoeic the expiratory gas flow time is too short for alveolar emptying, leading to airtrapping.
Peribronchial interstitial oedema causes external bronchial compression and airtrapping. With increasing interstitial oedema the pulmonary lymphatic absorption capacity becomes overrun and intra-alveolar fluid accumulates.
Uneven areas of lung atelectasis and airtrapping also contribute to V/Q mismatch and hypoxia.
