We evaluated the effect of the alveolar recruitment strategy and high positive end-expiratory pressure (PEEP) on hemodynamics in 20 morbidly obese (body mass index 50 +/- 9 kg/m2), intravascular volume-loaded patients undergoing laparoscopic surgery. The alveolar recruitment strategy was sequentially performed with and without capnoperitoneum and consisted of an upward PEEP trial, recruitment with 50-60 cm H2O of plateau pressure for 10 breaths, and a downward PEEP trial. Recruitment and high PEEP did not cause significant disturbances in any hemodynamic variable measured by systemic and pulmonary artery catheters. Transesophageal echocardiography revealed no differences in end-diastolic areas or evidence of segmental abnormalities in wall motion.
