Abstract

Bedside monitoring of lung recruitment is a key
feature in the ventilatory management of patients with acute
respiratory distress syndrome. Electrical Impedance
Tomography is a relatively new imaging technique which
reconstructs the electrical conductivity distribution in a lung
cross section from electrical measurements made on electrodes
placed on the surface of the thorax. The induced conductivity
changes can be continuously monitored to assess the
topographical distribution of air in the lung and optimise the
ventilation strategy. The purpose of this paper is to illustrate
these principles on a physiological model of the lung mechanics
simulating the concept of recruitment in ventilated patients
with acute respiratory distress syndrome.
