  • EPVent 2- A Phase II Study of Mechanical Ventilation Directed by Transpulmonary Pressures

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    This phase II multi-centered, randomized controlled trial of mechanical ventilation directed by esophageal pressure measurement will test the primary hypothesis that using a strategy of maintaining a minimal but positive transpulmonary pressure (Ptp = airway pressure minus pleural pressure) throughout the ventilatory cycle will lead to an improvement in patient survival.
