CONCLUSIONS: 1. PEEP significantly increases sympathetic nervous system activity in a rapid, dose-dependent, reversible manner; 2. the PEEP-induced increases in sympathetic activity may explain the reductions in organ blood flow which others have observed following the initiation of PEEP; 3. PEEP-related changes in sympathetic nervous system activity are a consequence of PEEP-induced reductions in cardiac output.
