Détails de la formation

Mechanical ventilation is life sustaining but may also lead to damage of the

lungs when stress and strain induce a process known as ventilator-induced

lung injury (VILI) (1-2). Mechanical power, which is calculated by combining

plateau pressure, respiratory rate, flow and volume, may be a predictor of lung

injury(3-4). Reducing the applied mechanical power in ventilation may play a role

in lung protective ventilation and by reducing VILI.

This lecture will cover:

  • The basics of mechanical power
  • The different types of mechanical power which can contribute to lung damage
  • The potential benefits of mechanical power and why is this interesting for lung protective ventilation
  • Modes of ventilation which are optimized on mechanical power and lung protective ventilation
  • Preliminary results of recent research
