(icTV) Interview with Alexandre B. Cavalcanti

(icTV) Interview with Alexandre B. Cavalcanti

Does use of a lung recruitment maneuver associated with positive end-expiratory pressure (PEEP) titration according to the best respiratory-system compliance reduce 28-day mortality of patients with moderate-to-severe acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) compared to a conventional low-PEEP strategy?

In this icTV interview, Alexandre B. Cavalcanti (São Paulo, Brazil) discusses ART, a large-scale international randomised controlled trial which answers this important question.

The surprising results were presented for the first time during the Hot Topics session at LIVES 2017 in Vienna.
