Decrease the work of breathing. “Permissive Hyperapnea or Controlled Hypoventilation is recommended” • PaCO2 is allowed to remain higher than usual by decreasing ventilator settings. The aim is to reduce hyperinflation and barotrauma. • Tidal volume is set in such a way so as to minimise peak inspiratory pressure (PIP). • Prolong the expiratory phase by increasing expiratory flow and decreasing the respiratory rate. • Elevated PaCO2 levels carries a small risk of cardiac dysrhythmias and hypertension.
Nebulised MgSO4 therapy is ineffective. Magnesium works by modulating calcium channels causing a decrease in acetylcholine with subsequent bronchodilatation and inhibition of histamine release from mast cells. 5 mgm subcutaneously in addition to inhaled short acting β2 agonist. 2 μg/kg/min.
