Abstract This paper shall analyze three different studies on Recruitment Measures. The studies present different prescribed methods of alveolar recruitment for patients suffering from Acute Respiratory Distress. The analysis notes the repeating theme of the great care that needs to be taken when administering mechanical ventilation to a patient as the damage associated with over or under pressurization can adversely effect patient outcomes and reduce the success rate of any of the recruitment interventions performed. Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome And Recruitment Maneuvers Patients that present with Acute Respiratory Distress often suffer from a variety of ailments that compound interventions and distort assessment of results....The end:
