Peak Airway Pressure and Plateau Pressure on Ventilator: An Overview

Introduction Mechanical ventilation is a cornerstone of modern critical care and anesthesiology, providing essential respiratory support to patients who are unable to maintain adequate ventilation and oxygenation. Two critical parameters in the management of ventilated patients are peak airway pressure (Ppeak) and plateau pressure (Pplat). Understanding these pressures is crucial for optimizing ventilatory support, diagnosing … Read more
