Nevertheless, the changes in respiratory system compliance do not reflect the lung compliance accurately, especially in patients with high chest wall elastance.
reported that the level of PEEP had no effect on intracranial system in patients with low respiratory system compliance [19].

This level of pressure support can avoid a load that exceeds the patient's respiratory capacity while improving the patient's respiratory system compliance and resistant (Lessard & Brochard) by reconditioning the patient's respiratory muscles (Jounieaux et al., 1994).
