Synopsis: 
Recruitment manoeuvres (RMs) were conducted with continuous positive airway pressure on 41 ventilated patients with severe acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). The results showed that repeated RMs during lung-protected ventilation can improve pulmonary compliance and oxygenation and significantly decrease extravascular lung water in ARDS patients. Lung injury was not worsened by repeated RMs in patients with severe ARDS.
