In this post, Ewan C. Goligher, MD, PhD answers questions related to Myotrauma and provides insights into the recent analysis published in Lancet Respiratory Medicine.
Expiratory flow limitation (EFL) is often associated with the presence of auto-PEEP. There are simple bedside maneuvers that can be done to determine the severity of EFL. For this subject, the CoEMV invited Detajin Junhasavasdikul MD, first author of a paper on the subject published in Chest, 2018.
The results are in! There were multiple correct responses. The patient indeed has high resistance as shown by the…
Flow starvation is a form of patient-ventilator dyssynchrony that occurs when a patient is demanding more flow than the ventilator provides.
Short cycling is a common form of patient-ventilator dyssynchrony. It occurs when a patient-triggered breath cycles off prior to the patient effort being completed.

Since its completion, the LUNG SAFE database has been utilized to answer a wide range of clinical questions regarding global practice. With the help of one of the authors, Dr. Tài Pham, we have provide a list, with brief synopsis of the currently published research, as well as upcoming future/planned analyses.
Ineffective efforts are one of the most common forms of patient-ventilator dyssynchrony. They occur when the patient is unable to trigger the ventilator during the expiratory phase of ventilation.
