Sodium Nitroprusside Sodium nitroprusside (NTP) is a nitric oxide donor that induces a potent arteriolar and venous vasodilation. Although it quickly lowers BP, some of its systemic effects are potentially problematic. 31–33 When combining several studies comparing clevidipine (CLV) with nitroglycerin, sodium nitroprusside, or nicardipine in patients after cardiac surgery. there was no difference in the incidence of myocardial infarction, stroke, or renal dysfunction for CLV-treated patients compared with the other treatment groups.

23 Although this occasionally compounds the dynamic hyperinflation, potentially compromising cardiac output, usually autoPEEP increases little as long as PEEP is not set higher than about 85% of the autoPEEP. The goals are (1) to minimize alveolar overdistention (Pplat , 30) and (2) to minimize dynamic hyperinflation (autoPEEP , 15 cm H2O or end-inspiratory lung volume , 20 mL/kg), a strategy that largely prevents barotrauma. Reducing minute ventilation to achieve these goals generally causes the PCO2 to rise above 40 mm Hg, often to 70 mm Hg or higher.
