Abstract

Objective: The incidence of barotrauma in patients who received mechanical ventilation (MV) has decreased due to protective MV strategies. This study aimed to assess the incidence, treatment, and prognosis of barotrauma in patients who received MV in our tertiary intensive care unit (ICU) and to discuss with the literature.
