Mechanical ventilatory support in circulatory shock.
Mechanical support of ventilation is associated with a number of hemodynamic consequences that result from direct and indirect hydrostatic phenomena, humoral effects, and changes in distribution of peripheral blood flow, particularly in patients with circulatory shock. Each of these is discussed in detail, and recommendations are made for harnessing these effects in order to improve circulation.
