@farid__jalali @iceman_ex @pdsalinas @Acute_Pulmo_Med @PulmCrit @ThinkingCC @gattinon @vaszochios @doctorbrijpatel @cameronks @ElieAzoulay5 Dear friends. I have read with great interest this discussion. While I dont have all answers I do have some thoughts. 1 ARDS is a syndrome and not a disease as such it is very heterogenic even in COVID. 2 the compliance you are talking about is calculated dynamic lung compliance @farid__jalali @iceman_ex @pdsalinas @Acute_Pulmo_Med @PulmCrit @ThinkingCC @gattinon @vaszochios @doctorbrijpatel @cameronks @ElieAzoulay5 In addition I would like to refer to another paper introducing the "squishy ball" theory in fibrotic lungs (so this could refer to late #COVID19 #ARDS)

There are many advantages of continuous IAP measurement as listed in infographic #ISICEM19 Start measuring IAP (abdominal pressure) in ICU patients when there are 2 or more risk factors related to
-increased intra-luminal contents
-increased intra-abdominal contents
-decreased compliance
-fluid overload and capillary leak
