Technical Aspects of the Respiratory System in an Aired Valetudinarian with a Covid-19 Associated Pattern of Acute Respiratory Distress.
There has been much discussion regarding the relationship between respiratory mechanics, specifically respiratory system static compliance (CRS), and the severity of hypoxemia in patients with acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) related to covid-19. Some studies have reported distinct ARDS phenotypes based on CRS. It is crucial to ascertain whether these traits exist since they may need for different breathing techniques than those employed in individuals with ARDS brought on by other causes. We assessed the mechanics of the respiratory system, ventilator parameters, gas exchange parameters, and clinical outcomes in patients with COVID-19-related ARDS in a systematic review and meta-analysis of articles published between December 1, 2019, and March 14, 2022. Increasing ARDS severity was linked to a decline in CRS; hence it is believed that no adjustment to traditional lung-protective breathing techniques is necessary.Author(s): Eugenio Falk
