Lung- and Diaphragm Protective Ventilation
Mechanical ventilation is a life-saving intervention for patients with respiratory failure, but it can also cause VILI and acute diaphragm injury and atrophy. This is associated with poor clinical outcomes, including longer hospital stays and greater risk of mortality. Although the importance and impact of lung-protective ventilation is widely appreciated and well established, the concept of diaphragm-protective ventilation has recently emerged as a potential complementary therapeutic strategy.
