IMPLICATIONS: During artificial ventilation, applying a positive pressure in expiration expands the lung and improves the uptake of oxygen, but there is a theoretical risk of reduced carbon dioxide elimination. We applied positive end-expiratory pressure to patients immediately after heart surgery and found that it has no effect on carbon dioxide elimination.
