Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Auto-positive end-expiratory pressure (PEEP) is a common but frequently unrecognized problem in critically ill patients. It has important physiologic consequences and can cause shock and cardiac arrest. Treatment consists of relieving expiratory airflow obstruction and reducing minute ventilation delivered by positive pressure ventilation. Sedation and fluid management are important adjunctive therapies. This analytic review discusses the prevalence, pathophysiology, and hemodynamic consequences of auto-PEEP and an approach to its treatment.
