How can you use “peep” in a sentence? Here are some example sentences to help you improve your vocabulary:

  • Baseline measurements were made following a 1 h steady state of conventional mechanical ventilation using the following ventilatory settings: FiO 2 0.85, PEEP 10 cmH 2 O, inspiratory time 30%, respiratory frequency 16 ± 2 bpm, V T 728 ± 32 ml.

  • PEEP improves oxygenation by redistributing the alveolar fluid and restores functional residual capacity by keeping the alveoli open.

  • In animals, PEEP decreases hepatosplanchnic perfusion in a dose-dependent manner, with a limited effect at PEEP levels of less than 10 cmH 2 O [ 2 4 5 ] . Alterations in splanchnic blood flow attributed to PEEP occur in parallel to those in cardiac output and consequently can be reversed with restoration of blood pressure [ 4 13 ] . Despite experimental evidence, concerns regarding the effects of PEEP on splanchnic perfusion remain theoretical because large studies in humans are lacking.

  • In "Peep Show," David Edelstein writes:

  • Opening pressure could be clearly identified in nine patients and was always ≤ 10 cmH 2 O. A PEEP of 10 cmH 2 O was systematically applied to all patients.
