PURPOSE: The purpose of the study was to compare 2 alveolar recruitment maneuvers (ARMs) approaches in patients with subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) and acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS).
MATERIAL AND METHODS: Sixteen SAH patients with ARDS were randomized in 2 similar groups. One received ARM with continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) of 35 cm H(2)O for 40 seconds (CPAP recruitment), whereas the other received pressure control ventilation with positive-end expiratory pressure of 15 cm H(2)O and pressure control above positive end-expiratory pressure of 35 cm H(2)O for 2 minutes (pressure control recruitment maneuver [PCRM]). Intracranial pressure (ICP) and cerebral perfusion pressure (CPP) were measured before and after ARM. The ratio of arterial oxygen tension to fraction of inspired oxygen was measured before and 1 hour after the ARM.
RESULTS: After ARM, ICP was higher in CPAP recruitment (20.50 ± 4.75 vs 13.13 ± 3.56 mm Hg; P = .003); and CPP was lower in CPAP recruitment (62.38 ± 9.81 vs 79.60 ± 6.8 mm Hg; P = .001). One hour after the ARM, the ratio of arterial oxygen tension to fraction of inspired oxygen increased significantly only in PCRM (108.5 to 203.6; P = .0078).
CONCLUSION: In SAH patients with ARDS, PCRM did not affect ICP and decreased CPP in safe levels, besides improving oxygenation.
