Tag: positive end-expiratory pressure (PEEP)

Protective intraoperative mechanical ventilation has been associated with reduced postoperative pulmonary complication risk. Obesity is associated with an increased risk of atelectasis and impaired respiratory function. In this setting, high positive end-expiratory pressure with alveolar recruitment maneuvers have been proposed for routine intraoperative mechanical ventilation to prevent these physiologic...
