Abstract

Objective: Low tidal volume (VT) and lung protective ventilation (LPV) are recommended to prevent lung injury associated with invasive mechanical ventilation (IMV). Present study aimed to determine the patients with risk of high VT application, whether VT calculated according ideal body weight (IBW) values are suitable for the recommended (6-8 mL/kg) and whether a questionnaire on the issue contributes to IMV suitable for LPV.
