Abstract

Airway pressure release ventilation is a novel mode of positive pressure ventilation that has advantages over low tidal volume, assist control ventilation in patients with acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). It also helps to meet the goals of ventilatory management of patients with ARDS such as lung protection strategy. We report a patient with trauma who developed fat embolism syndrome (FES) followed by severe life-threatening ARDS and successfully managed with airway pressure release ventilation.
