Table 1 Six ventilation strategies for intensive care unit patients without ALI or ARDS

From: Mechanical ventilation strategies for intensive care unit patients without acute lung injury or acute respiratory distress syndrome: a systematic review and network meta-analysis

  Strategy
A Lower tidal volume and lower PEEP (lower VT + lower PEEP)
B Higher tidal volume and lower PEEP (higher VT + lower PEEP)
C Lower tidal volume and higher PEEP (lower VT + higher PEEP)
D Lower tidal volume (lower VT + ZEEP)
E Higher tidal volume (higher VT+ ZEEP)
F Higher tidal volume and higher PEEP (higher VT + higher PEEP)
  1. Lower positive end-expiratory pressure (PEEP) <10 mmHg; higher PEEP ≥10 mmHg; lower tidal volume (VT) ≤8 ml/kg; higher VT >8 ml/kg. ZEEP zero end-expiratory pressure
