Abstract: Background: Mechanical ventilation causes injury to the lungs due to high pressures and high volumes. Pressure affecting the lungs, the transpulmonary pressure, needs to be monitored to minimise harmful side effects but then lung and chest wall mechanics need to be separately considered. The conventional method is based on measurement of esophageal pressures but the interpretation of these pressures is debated. A non-invasive “PEEP-step method” for calculation of transpulmonary pressure has been... more
