Six lambs anesthetized, paralyzed, tracheostomized and cystostomized were ventilated alternatively with continuous positive pressure ventilation (CPPV), at 16 breaths per min (bpm) and with LFPPV-ECCO2R, at 2 bpm. The renal function, as measured by urinary flow, creatinine clearance, osmolar clearance, and osmolar output, improved between 25% and 35%, lowering the respiratory rate from 16 to 2 bpm, at the same positive end expiratory pressure. The possible mechanism involved (antidiuretic hormone, hemodynamic factor, cardiopulmonary reflex) is discussed.
