We decided to keep the patient under spontaneous ventilation since endotracheal intubation and the use of mechanical ventilation could increase the PVR.
78 Maximal advantage of the rLMA would be achieved by using a spontaneous ventilation technique with awake removal in recovery.
Immediately after tracheal extubation, spontaneous ventilation mode using a bi-level NIPPV support was used.
