Positive end-expiratory pressure PEEP contributes to increased end-expiratory lung volume EELV and to improved oxygenation, but differentiating recruitment of previously nonaerated lung units from distension of previously open lung units remains difficult. Alveolar recruitment was measured using pressure-volume PV curves.

Effects of patient positioning on respiratory mechanics in mechanically ventilated ICU patients
Spinal cord injuries SCIs often lead to impairment of the respiratory system and, consequently, restrictive respiratory changes. Paresis or paralysis of the respiratory muscles can lead to respiratory insufficiency, which is dependent on the level and completeness of the injury. Respiratory complications include hypoventilation, a reduction in surfactant production, mucus plugging, atelectasis, and pneumonia.
Vital capacity VC is an indicator of overall pulmonary function; patients with severely impaired VC may require assisted ventilation. It is best to proceed with intubation under controlled circumstances rather than waiting until the condition becomes an emergency.
Mechanical ventilation can adversely affect the structure and function of the diaphragm. Early tracheostomy following short orotracheal intubation is probably beneficial in selected patients. Weaning should start as soon as possible, and the best modality is progressive ventilator-free breathing PVFB. Appropriate candidates can sometimes be freed from mechanical ventilation by electrical stimulation. Approximately two-thirds of patients with acute SCI will experience complications such as atelectasis, pneumonia, and respiratory failure, which will require mechanical ventilation [ 1 , 2 ].
The degree of respiratory dysfunction is related to the extent and level of the neurological injury [ 3 ], in such a way that high cervical and thoracic injuries are at the highest risk. Various studies have suggested an increasing trend in cervical injuries, in particular, C1—C4 injuries, with an increased rate of SCI resulting in mechanical ventilation dependency [ 4 , 5 ].
In SCI, respiratory dysfunction that leads to respiratory complications may be related to 3 factors: VC impairment a reduction in respiratory muscle strength and fatigue, a reduction in inspiratory capacity, and atelectasis , retention of secretions increased production of secretions, ineffective coughing , and autonomic dysfunction increased secretions, bronchospasms, and pulmonary edema [ 6 ].
Although pulmonary complications are a common and well-known problem in SCI, there is little information about their management; current practice is mainly based on clinical experience and expert opinion [ 7 ]. Promptness of prevention and treatment, as well as a multidisciplinary treatment approach by professionals experienced in the treatment of SCI, reduces respiratory complications.
In this review, we provide an update on the treatment of respiratory dysfunction, the strategies for mechanical ventilation, and the criteria for tracheotomy and ventilator weaning in SCI. The muscles of respiration comprise three groups: the diaphragm, the intercostal and accessory muscles, and the muscles of the abdomen. The process of inspiration involves contraction of the diaphragm and the external intercostal muscles that allow the chest cavity to expand.
At high levels of ventilator activity, the accessory muscles are recruited to aid in this process. Expiration is largely passive but can be augmented by the forceful contraction of the muscles of the abdominal wall [ 6 , 8 ].
The degree of respiratory failure associated with traumatic injuries to the spinal cord depends on the level of the spinal lesion. In general, functional impairment worsens as the level of injury is more rostral. Other factors that are associated with pulmonary complications are age, preexisting medical illnesses, and associated major traumatic injuries.
Individuals with SCI exhibit reduced lung volumes and flow rates as a result of respiratory muscle weakness. Changes in spirometric measurements in SCI are dependent on injury level and posture [ 8 , 9 ]. As the level of injury ascends, total lung capacity is progressively reduced.
The reduction in functional residual capacity occurs at the expense of expiratory reserve volume, with a compensatory increase in residual volume. The loss of expiratory reserve volume can be explained by the denervation of the abdominal musculature and other muscles necessary for forced exhalation. Goldman et al. There is recent evidence of the benefits of a semiseated position to the weaning process of patients dependent on a respirator [ 12 ] and the effect of the seated position on lung volume and oxygenation in acute respiratory distress syndrome [ 13 ].
However, it must be noted that quadriplegics have better pulmonary mechanics in the supine position than when upright [ 14 ]. In erect postures, the abdominal contents fall forwards unopposed, and the diaphragm flattens, thus impairing the rib cage expanding mechanism of the only major respiratory muscle available in tetraplegia. The increase in vital VC in the supine position is related to the effect of gravity on the abdominal contents and a concomitant reduction in residual volume.
The time factor is important because pulmonary function of quadriplegic patients should improve as the muscle flaccidity associated with initial phase of spinal shock converts to the spasticity of paralyzed muscles; this increase in muscle tone affects both intercostal and abdominal muscles and results in a decline in the end-expiratory volume and more effective diaphragmatic contraction.
Injury to the cervical or thoracic spinal cord affects the spinal nerves that innervate respiratory muscles. The diaphragm, the major muscle of inspiration, receives its innervation from the third, fourth, and fifth cervical spinal segments. Paralysis of diaphragmatic, intercostal, and abdominal muscles results from lesions occurring above the third cervical level and, in the absence of mechanical ventilatory support, is incompatible with life.
High cervical incomplete lesions C 2 —C 4 or cervical lesions below C5 C5—C8 are likely to produce paralysis, weakness, or spasticity in the muscles used to perform forced respiration. In these patients, neural control of the diaphragm is preserved, and spontaneous ventilation is possible. However, in such quadriplegic patients, respiratory function is substantially compromised, and ventilator failure can occur days after injury.
Commonly, the respiration of patients with diaphragmatic paralysis exhibits a paradoxical movement of the abdomen: the abdominal wall retracts during inspiration and protrudes during the expiration phase. This pattern, more frequent in cervical than thoracic SCI, is the result of a lack of spinal motor activation of the external intercostals combined with the excessive compliance of the abdominal wall due to weak muscle contraction.
Alterations in chest wall, lung and abdominal compliance in tetraplegia are associated with an increase in the work of breathing and may contribute to respiratory muscle fatigue. After the initial stage of spinal shock has passed, patients with tetraplegia may develop abnormal spinal reflexes that involve the abdominal muscles. This spastic contraction reduces the elastic properties of the abdominal compartment of the respiratory system.
Spastic contractions of the abdominal muscles impose a substantial load on inspiratory muscles. This additional pressure must be overcome for inspiration to occur, resulting in dyspnea [ 9 ]. The main physiologic consequence of expiratory muscle paralysis is an impaired cough.
The cough reflex is preserved in cervical and upper thoracic SCI. However, the inability to cough adequately is caused by a weakness of the major muscles of expiration, resulting in an accumulation of secretions [ 9 ]. In acute quadriplegia, some patients develop an unexplained production of excessive and tenacious bronchial mucus. It has been speculated that the bronchial mucus hypersecretion is caused by the unopposed vagal activity, perhaps related to the initial disappearance of peripheral sympathetic nervous system tone [ 15 ].
As a result of the parasympathetic imbalance, there is bronchial spasm [ 16 ], increased vascular congestion, and decreased mucociliary activity [ 17 , 18 ]. Decreased mucociliary activity is also related to mechanical ventilation [ 19 ], which is associated with the development of secretion retention. These factors predispose the patient to atelectasis, pneumonia, and potentially respiratory failure [ 6 ]. The objective of monitoring the diaphragmatic function in patients with acute SCI is to help in the decisions on managing the airway.
The two most important markers that predict the need for intubation are the level of the injury and the ASIA classification. In these patients, elective intubation is recommended.
Urgent intubation when the patient develops respiratory distress increases the risk of neurological damage due to improper manipulation of the neck or by hypoxia [ 20 ]. In selected patients with complete cervical lesions or in those with incomplete or lower lesions, a conservative management can be performed. In these cases, the lung function should be strictly monitored. Exclusive monitoring by pulse oximetry is inadequate and requires arterial gasometry or capnography [ 22 ].
In patients who are intubated, the goal is to predict the time when weaning can be started and to detect those patients that can become ventilator dependent. The studies on phrenic nerve conduction, although essential for assessing the possibility of using diaphragmatic pacemakers, do not properly differentiate between patients who can be weaned and those who are ventilator dependent.
Pathological studies do not distinguish between neuropraxia, atrophy, and axonotmesis. Similarly, normal results do not guarantee a sufficient diaphragmatic force [ 23 ]. For similar reasons, diaphragmatic fluoroscopy does not predict the possibility of weaning from the respirator and should not be used as a prognostic marker [ 23 ]. In recent years, interest has grown in the use of ultrasound as a noninvasive, bedside approach to evaluating diaphragm function [ 24 , 25 ].
Vivier et al. Kim et al. However, the use of diaphragm ultrasound in patients with acute spinal cord injury has not been prospectively studied. As with monitoring the need for intubation, spirometry with measurement of the VC and the maximum negative inspiratory pressure are the best bedside markers for initiating weaning [ 6 , 23 , 28 ].
More direct measures of diaphragmatic function such as transdiaphragmatic pressure and negative inspiration force diaphragm needle electromyography are invasive and of little use in clinical practice [ 6 , 23 ]. Noninvasive studies such as the estimation of diaphragm dysfunction using airway occlusion pressure during magnetic stimulation of the phrenic nerves are correlated with the duration of ventilatory support [ 29 ], but their use in clinical practice is unknown.
To ventilate a patient with acute SCI, we must take into account the peculiarities that exclusively affect these patients. There are excellent reviews on ventilation in acute pulmonary lesions [ 30 , 31 ].
In contrast to the abundance of the literature on mechanical ventilation in acute pulmonary lesions, the literature on the management of specific complications of acute SCI is very limited and of low quality. The preservation of diaphragmatic function should be a primary objective in all patients undergoing mechanical ventilation. Diaphragmatic dysfunction is a common cause of weaning failure [ 32 ]. The consequences of this dysfunction in patients who depend almost exclusively on the diaphragm to maintain effective inspiration are clear.
Diaphragmatic atrophy occurs early after only 18 hours of inactivity [ 34 ], and although the pathophysiology is not well understood, it is related to an increase in muscle proteolysis [ 34 , 35 ]. Diaphragmatic atrophy increases with ventilation time and causes a progressive reduction in diaphragmatic function.
VIDD has been linked to diaphragmatic inactivity caused by controlled ventilation. It has been shown in animal models that assist modes attenuate VIDD [ 36 ].
These findings have not been confirmed in humans, and no difference has been found in the onset of VIDD between patients ventilated with pressure control and those ventilated with pressure support [ 37 ]. Our practice is to use an assisted modality. We avoid pressure support ventilation PSV given the lack of evidence for a better prognosis and the risk of inadequate ventilation and exhaustion in patients with reduced respiratory reserve.
The objective is to maintain some level of diaphragmatic contraction, ensuring total respiratory support. Achieving this objective requires adequate interaction between the patient and the respirator and the avoidance of asynchrony. Asynchrony can occur at any time in the respiratory cycle. With a perfect patient-ventilator interaction, the respirator should trigger in synchrony with the electrical impulses originating in the central nervous system [ 38 ].
Most of ventilators in use today trigger inspiration by a signal measured within the ventilator circuit The signal may be a fall in the pressure of the airway pressure trigger or a variation in the flow signal flow trigger. Although it was initially believed that the flow trigger produced a better patient-respirator interaction [ 40 ], with current respirators, no differences have been found [ 41 , 42 ]. In recent years, a new modality of ventilation has been reported: neutrally adjusted ventilator assist NAVA [ 43 ].
In this modality, the signal used by the respirator to deliver assistance is not the flow or the airway pressure, but rather the diaphragmatic electromyogram signal collected from electrodes placed on an esophageal catheter. Despite its promising theoretical advantages, to date there is little evidence of the superiority of NAVA compared with other ventilatory modalities [ 44 ]. Our practice is to use the flow trigger. We use the lowest level possible that avoids the autotrigger.
In case an ineffective trigger is detected, we must rule out the presence of auto-PEEP positive end-expiratory pressure.
Respiratory Management in the Patient with Spinal Cord Injury
Nevertheless, some authors have proposed various modalities of spontaneous ventilation in the setting of early severe ARDS. Such an analytical bundle requires evidence-based demonstration. Here, early spontaneous ventilation in the setting of severe ARDS will make use of Pressure Support PS , as early as possible once the acute cardio-ventilatory distress has been controlled. Some, including a proponent of short-term paralysis , have proposed various modalities of SV [5,] in the setting of early severe ARDS. ARDS is, operationally, a disease of oxygenation imposing to generate a high transpulmonary pressure to reopen at end-inspiration alveoli closed during expiration airway closure ; this imposes a high metabolic demand on ventilatory muscles and ultimately acidosis and possible ventilatory arrest. ARDS is not a disease of respiratory genesis nor of ventilatory muscles: these muscles need assistance only to the extent that the valves, circuit and tracheal tube impose a non-physiologic load, in addition to re-opening closed alveoli. Indeed, the use of high PaCO 2 is reported for limited periods, purportedly [16,17] or inadvertently [18,19].

Metrics details. The investigation was conducted in a multidisciplinary intensive care unit. The responsible physician set basal PEEP. To avoid hypoxemia, FiO 2 was increased to 0. Twenty-three patients were included in the study, and twenty were analyzed.
Patients admitted to the ICU for acute respiratory failure frequently required intubation and invasive mechanical ventilation. In the early stage of management the invasive mechanical ventilation is commonly delivered in a semi-recumbent supine position under sedation with or without neuromuscular blockade. Changing position is important to break through the routine monotonic delivery of mechanical ventilation and to favor the clearance of respiratory secretions, the prevention of pressure sores and ventilator acquired pneumonia, and the improvement in lung volume and oxygenation.
