Based on the recently published paper “Impact of Respiratory Rate and Dead Space in the Current Era of Lung Protective Mechanical Ventilation”, we will discuss here briefly the different part of the dead space and how it can be reduced, as well as the relations with respiratory rate, tidal volume and alveolar ventilation (part 2).…

Protective mechanical ventilation should be implemented after intubation in ARDS and in non ARDS patients, and in COVID-19 patients with pneumonia. However, protective ventilation does not just mean tidal volume reduction and we would like to focus here on the respiratory rate and the instrumental dead space. Based on the recently published paper “Impact of…
