However, this requires separate ventilation of lung regions. At present this can be achieved by positioning the patient in the lateral position and then ventilating the two lungs separately via a double-lumen endobronchial catheter. By applying PEEP to the dependent lung and less or no PEEP to the upper lung while distributing ventilation equally between the lungs an improved V/Q match can be obtained.
