Rhubarb is gradually used in adjuvant therapy of mechanical ventilation due to its functions in curing respiratory failure,protecting gastrointestinal tract,reducing VAP(ventilator associated pneumonia)and VILI(ventilator-induced lung injury).Extensive present clinical investigations confirm that rhubarb has positive effects on patients receiving mechanical ventilation and can also regulate immunity,inhibite intestinal bacterial translocation,and restrain SIRS(systemic inflammatory response syndrome).We summarized the effects of rhubarb and its use in mechanical ventilation.
