Respiratory failure of different origins often requires therapy with mechanical ventilation and positive end-expiratory pressure (PEEP). These supports are occasionally inadequate if the damage to one lung is significantly more pronounced than that to the other lung. Technical means exist to ventilate each lung independently or to provide a different PEEP to each lung. The findings from nine patients in whom one of these techniques was applied are presented, and advantages and disadvantages are discussed.
