Stabilize the patient and protect the lung

Bringing lung protection into focus

As Your Specialist in Acute Care, we know that if intubation becomes necessary, the first aim may be to improve gas exchange and lung mechanics. The initiation of a lung protective ventilation strategy and the optimization of ventilator settings may be key elements during this phase. The ventilator has to adapt to the patient and not vice versa.

Stabilization as second step of the Respiration Pathway

Stabilize Pathway

Stabilize the patient and protect the lung because...

  • patients could develop ventilator-associated lung injury (VALI) 
  • VALI could turn into acute lung injury (ALI) or acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) 
  • multiple organ failure and mortality rate may increase, associated with ALI or ARDS

Tidal ventilation and risk of VILI

Repeated tidal recruitment and de-recruitment may lead to ventilator induced lung injury (VILI) (lower pictures). If alveoli are stabilized by sufficient PEEP at end-expiration, tidal ventilation is less likely to induce any negative side effects (upper pictures).
