Currently, one-lung ventilation-induced lung injury is increasingly concerned. Low tidal volume ventilation and PEEP are recommended as important lung protective measures. In addition, avoid inhalation of high concentrations of oxygen and limit the amount of liquid can prevent the occurrence of lung injury. Whether these measures can reduce the shedding and destruction of pulmonary vascular endothelial glycocalyx? Currently, it is still no definitive answer.
