Differential Lung Ventilation is a special technique to ventilate separately the individual lungs via a double lumen endobronchial tube. In this way tidal volume delivery can be controlled and a higher positive end-expiratoryp ressurec anb e applieds electivelyto one of the lungs( SPEEP).This techniqueh as to be considered particularly in patients with hypoxaemia due to severe asymmetric pulmonary pathology. This is because, in this situation, contrary to bilateral pathology, conventional mechanical ventilation (CMV) and additional measures like (non-selective)P EEP and positioning of the patient often failed to improve critical arterial hypoxaemia. ...
