Hemodynamics and renal function during low frequency positive pressure ventilation with extracorporeal CO2 removal. A comparison with continuous positive pressure ventilation

Intensive Care Medicine
L GattinoniG P Rossi


Six lambs were anesthetized and connected venovenous mode to a Membrane Lung for Extracorporeal CO2 removal. The animals underwent several hours periods of continuous positive pressure ventilation (CPPV), at 5 cmH2O positive end expiratory pressure (PEEP), alternated with several hours periods of low frequency positive pressure ventilation (5 cmH2O PEEP, 2 b.p.m.) with extracorporeal CO2 removal (LFPPV-ECCO2R). During LFPPV-ECCO2R compared with CPPV, cardiac output increased by 26%, pulmonary vascular resistances and systemic vascular resistances decreased by 28% and 22% respectively. The renal function improved significantly during LFPPV-ECCO2R compared with CPPV, i.e. urinary flow, creatinine clearance and osmolar clearance increased by 50%, 37% and 52% respectively. In these experiments LFPPV-ECCO2R, a form of completely artificial ventilation, seems to prevent hemodynamic and renal complications of CPPV.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.
