PMID:  15105237     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
IMPLICATIONS: Application of positive end-expiratory pressure during induction of general anesthesia in morbidly obese patients prevents atelectasis formation and improves oxygenation. Therefore, this technique should be considered for anesthesia induction in morbidly obese patients.
