Physiological effects of the open lung approach during laparoscopic cholecystectomy: focus on driving pressure
Minerva anestesiologica, 2017.
During laparoscopy, respiratory mechanics and gas exchange are impaired because of pneumoperitoneum and atelectasis formation. We applied an open lung approach (OLA) consisting in lung recruitment followed by a decremental positive-end expiratory pressure (PEEP) trial to identify the level of PEEP corresponding to the highest compliance o...More
