A long expiratory time reduces air trapping. Avoid PEEP in patients with COPD. If there are high-frequency bullae, avoid N2O and ­consider double-lumen tube. Spontaneous respiration or jet ventilation (HFJV) may be appropriate with bullae. At the end of surgery, ensure bowel is decompressed and drain any peritoneal air.

Intra-aortic balloon-pump counterpulsation This is used as a mechanical assist device for the failing myocardium.
