Abstract
: Electrical impedance tomography measures changes in lung impedance, which are mainly related to changes in lung volume. We used electrical impedance tomography to inves- tigate the effects of high-flow nasal cannula (HFNC) and body position on global and regional end-expiratory lung impedance variation ( EELI). METHODS: Prospective study with 20 healthy adults. Two periods were defined: the first in supine position and the second in prone position. Each period was divided into 3 phases. In the...
