How to set PEEP in Abdominal Hypertension

How to set PEEP in Abdominal Hypertension

How Intra-Abdominal Pressure affects respiratory mechanics and how to set PEEP in intra-abdominal hypertension

Increased intra-abdominal pressure (IAP) alters PV curves and usually shifts the chest wall PV loop to the right while lung PV curves remain unaffected.

The application of PEEP will increase IAP but only when > 10 cmH2O
On average a PEEP 15 cmH2O → IAP + 1.5mmHg
