Furthermore, both intrinsic PEEP and dynamic hyperinflation have been demonstrated in ventilator-dependent patients when they are removed from ventilatory support (25), indicating the presence of a high residual inspiratory load.
Increased breathing frequency exacerbates DH as it limits the time for exhalation and a positive feedback cycle ensues in which DH leads to decreased IC, leading to increased breathing frequency leading to intrinsic PEEP, leading to further DH and dyspnea.
One ought to remain mindful that the release time must be greater than three time constants to avoid the potential for excessive intrinsic PEEP. Therefore, time spent at Plow should be titrated to satisfy native time constants and permit complete exhalation to resting lung volume.
