Ardsnet steroid protocol

Evidence has shown that starting with low tidal volumes of 6 mL per kg is superior to starting with traditional tidal volumes of 10 to 15 mL per kg (number needed to treat = ). 21 , 22 Similarly, higher positive end-expiratory pressure values (12 cm H 2 O or more) are associated with decreased mortality compared with lower values of 5 to 12 cm H 2 O (number needed to treat = 20). 23 Conservative fluid therapy (titrated to lower central pressures) has been associated with decreased days on a ventilator and increased days outside the ICU. 24 Because of the potential complications of pulmonary artery and central venous catheters, they are not used routinely and should be administered only by those with training and experience. 25 , 26
