We also recorded end-tidal CO2, Ppeak and Pmean inspiratory pressure at 3 time intervals: at 15, 30 and 45 minutes after tracheal intubation.

We adjusted the dose of propofol every 5 min to achieve and maintain a Ramsay score of 4 and titrated the inspiratory pressure support to obtain a tidal volume (VT) of 6–8 ml/kg of the predicted body weight.
The mean and median values for forced expiratory volume in 1 second, forced vital capacity, maximum inspiratory pressure, maximum expiratory pressure and the ratio between partial pressure of oxygen in arterial blood and fraction of inspired oxygen at T0 were 101+-17, 102+-17, 66 (interquartile range: 59-74), 114 (interquartile range: 100-138) and 379+-49, respectively, compared with 78+-18, 76+-18, 53 (interquartile range: 48-59), 85 (interquartile range: 73-95) and 331+-49at T1 (p<0.
Research evidence suggests that inspiratory muscle training increases maximal inspiratory pressure and reduces MV and weaning time; [2] therefore, future surveys should include this aspect of respiratory muscle training in the ICU.
Maximal inspiratory pressure was assessed using a digital pressure vacuum meter (Net Tech, Farmingdale, NY).
The response to such stimulation is characterized by a strong inspiratory effort, large peak of negative inspiratory pressure (less then -20 cm[H.
Ventilator monitoring (Twin Stream, Carl Reiner GmbH) consisted of peak inspiratory pressure (PIP), mean airway pressure (MAP), positive-end expiratory pressure (PEEP), inspiratory oxygen concentration (Fi[O.
Stimulation at 50 Hz and 50 mA (total 200 mA for four channels) induced peak inspiratory pressures of only -6 [+ or -] 1 cm [H.
Maximum static inspiratory pressure was determined in deep inspiration starting from residual volume.
Mode of ventilation was changed to assisted pressure control ventilation with inspiratory pressure of 18 cm of H2O and positive end expiratory pressure (PEEP) of 15 cm of H2O.
Compared to older methods, these technologies also help to reduce the risk of lung injury from high inspiratory pressure and are more customized to patients with varying levels of complications.
