Best poster prize at AIC 2019
Dr. Patrick Spraider and colleagues received the Best Poster Price at the annual congress of the Österreichischen Gesellschaft für Anästhesiologie, Reanimation und Intensivmedizin – AIC congress, Graz, Austria,14-16 November 2019.
In a prospective controlled porcine study, Spraider et al. demonstrated that FCV significantly improved gas exchange and maintained better lung aeration during 10 hours of ventilation, as compared to pressure controlled ventilation (PCV). Ventilation settings for FCV were individually optimized through compliance-guided pressure settings, while PCV settings were chosen according to the standard of care for lung-protective ventilation. Results showed a significantly better oxygenation in the FCV group (+24%, P=0.0097) while requiring a 53% lower minute volume (P <0.0001) to achieve normocapnia. Furthermore, the portion of non-aerated lung tissue was significantly reduced by 27% in FCV (P=0.032), as demonstrated by CT scans performed at the end of the experiment.
