Abstract [en]

Background. Differences between inspiratory and expiratory lung mechanics result in the hysteresis of the pressure volume-loop. While hysteresis area is a global parameter describing the difference between inspiration and expiration in mechanics under quasi-static conditions, a detailed analysis of this difference under the dynamic conditions of mechanical ventilation is feasible once inspiratory and expiratory compliance (C-in/C-ex) are determined separately. This requires uncoupling of expiratory flow rate and volume (V). Methods. Five piglets were mechanically ventilated at positive end-expiratory pressure (PEEP) levels ranging from 0 to 15 cmH(2)O. Expiratory flow rate was linearized by a computer-controlled resistor (flow-controlled expiration). The volume-dependent C-in(V) and C-ex(V) profiles were calculated from the tracheal pressure volume-loops. Results. The intratidal curve-progression of C-ex(V) was altogether higher with a steeper slope compared to C-in(V). With increasing positive end-expiratory pressure (PEEP) dynamic hysteresis area decreased and C-ex(V) tended to run more parallel to C-in(V), Conclusion. The relation between inspiratory and expiratory compliance profiles is associated with the hysteresis area and behaves PEEP dependent. Analysing the C-in-C-ex-relation might therefore potentially offer a new approach to titrate PEEP and tidal volume.
