Subsequent breaths delivered from the ventilator increase lung volume until a new equilibrium is established. Endotracheal tubes Mechanical ventilation often requires tracheal intubation and this is a hazardous moment for any critically ill patient. Anaesthetic drugs always depress the circulation and neuromuscular paralysis removes the laryngeal reflexes that may protect against aspiration. Intubation may not be technically straightforward and patients with inadequate lung volume desaturate quickly.
