Key principles of lung protective ventilation

1) tidal volumes of 6ml/kg of IBW.
2) be sure to increase your PEEP as you increase your FiO2
3) keep your plateau pressures under 30
4) don’t expect to normalise the physiology

Excellent video on proning from the PROSEVA trial authors

    Great podcast. The ventilation segment is especially useful, the flowchart to attach to the ventilator should be very useful in times of undue stress. Thank you
