A Physician's Approach to Transpulmonary Pressure Monitoring webcast


During lung injury, the alveoli becomes unstable, which can result in repetitive alveolar closing and expansion (RACE). Further, factors such as patient positioning and organ weight can cause RACE to progress. Proper positive end-expiratory pressure (PEEP) improves oxygenation and stabilizes the alveoli while decreasing atelectrauma.
