Approximately 35% of patients admitted to the intensive care unit (ICU) are mechanically ventilated during their stay. Although mechanical ventilation is necessary to prevent the patient from dying, there are also drawbacks resulting from mechanical ventilation. In some patients, mechanical ventilation can even worsen the outcome by inducing ventilator-induced lung injury (VILI). Charlotte Beurskens investigates induced hypothermia and heliox ventilation as potential therapeutic strategies to reduce the intensity of mechanical ventilation with the aim to avoid or limit VILI.
