Abstract
Mechanical ventilation is a critical lifesaving tool in the intraoperative care of surgical patients submitted to general anesthesia. Ventilatory settings can also contribute to lung inflammation, oxidative stress and injury, even in healthy lungs of animals and humans. The optimum ventilatory settings for surgical patients are still being studied. Protective lung ventilation with low tidal volumes has been recommended. In any case, there is a delay between expert recommendations and their widespread implementation. A quality improvement focus in intraoperative ventilatory practice requires a literature follow up, an institutional objective analysis of individual practice, education of providers, specific interventions and continuous evaluation. We will present relevant current knowledge, recent advances and practical quality improvement suggestions in the field of intraoperative ventilation.
