This case study explores the difficulties of mechanical ventilation in the obese population and possible solutions that would be fit for use in the realm of anesthesia. Esophageal pressure monitoring via an esophageal manometer has shown promise in estimating the high pleural pressures of anesthetized obese patients. This information can then be used in the selection of an optimized PEEP that will stent open airways at end-expiration, decrease alveolar collapse, and reduce ventilator driving pressures. Many studies point to esophageal manometry having the potential to reduce the incidence of postoperative pulmonary complications.
