Optimising PEEP or CPAP during controlled ventilation is relatively easy. When a ventilatiator is in Pressure Control Mode the tidal volume resulting from a given differential airway pressure is proportional to lung compiance. Improved tidal volume at the same differential pressure indicate an improvement in lung compliance. If the inspiratory and expiratory times are long enough for alveolar equilibration, optimal PEEP (in a mechanical sense) is that which results in the greatest tidal volume at a given differential airway pressure.

Shawn Wells , a diet and nutrition expert and chief scientific officer at BioTRUST Nutrition, says, “Ninety percent of the time, proprietary blends are about listing things for marketing purposes and saving a lot of money.” He explained that “people think they are getting all these listed ingredients, but out of a total of 4,000 mg of a supplement, 3,999 mg could be, say, creatine, and only 1 mg could be BCAAS, which is what you really want. There’s no way to know.” He added that proprietary blends can also pose a danger when they contain certain ingredients, say, stimulants like caffeine or synephrine, which can be unsafe in larger doses.
