Managing Persistent Hypoxemia: what is new? [version 1; referees: 2 approved]

Robert M Kacmarek, Carlos Ferrando, Jesús Villar
Mechanical ventilation is the standard life-support technique for patients with severe acute respiratory failure. However, some patients develop persistent and refractory hypoxemia because their lungs are so severely damaged that they are unable to respond to the application of high inspired oxygen concentration and high levels of positive end-expiratory pressure. In this article, we review current knowledge on managing persistent hypoxemia in patients with injured lungs.
