Stabilization as second step of the Respiration Pathway
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).
