Pathophysiologic Changes in the Respiratory System During Therapeutic Interventions
Airway pressures change during fiberoptic bronchoscopy and endotracheal suctioning. In this study pressure changes are examined in a mechanical lung model and in a population of ICU patients on mechanical ventilation.

mechanically ventilated patients
ICU patients on mechanical ventilation. Daily endotracheal suctioning performed to reduce secretions. Data recorded during these therapeutic interventions.
Airway pressures change during fiberoptic bronchoscopy and endotracheal suctioning. In this study such pressure changes are examined in a mechanical lung model and in a population of ICU patients on mechanical ventilation. A systematic recording of airway pressures, tidal volumes and blood gases are carried out during ordinary therapeutic procedures requested by the staff physician. No additional study interventions are carried out.
The aim of the project is to examine negative effects of pressure/volume changes.
