positive end expiratory pressure. refers to positive pressure applied to the airway at end exhalation during mechanical positive pressure breaths. For example, 5 cm H20 PEEP would raise the baseline pressure to a + 5 cm H20 pressure rather than allowing pressure to return to zero during exhalation. The purpose of PEEP is to increase the volume of gas present in the lungs at end exhalation.
Positive End Expiratory Pressure. a method of mechanical ventilation in which pressure is maintained to increase the volume of gas remaining in the lung at the end of expiration, thus keeping alveoli open and improving gas exchange.
Peak End Expiratory Pressure. The application of positive pressure to the airways and alveoli during expiration when the patient is breathing with a mechanical ventilator; Maintains a small amount of air in the lungs, preventing complete emptying on exhalation to avoid airway collapse
Peep is the debut album by Finnish alternative rock band The Rasmus (named just "Rasmus" back then). It was first released in 1996, in Finland, Estonia and Russia, and subsequently in other countries such as Germany.
A device, usually plastic with a small hole in it attached to the string in the line of sight of the archer. Hence the archer can peep through this hole and have a second sight. Just like on a rifle with front and rear sights.
peep will route data among TCP/UDP connections, files, and standard I/O file descriptors in any way you specify. Optionally, it can connect the standard I/O file descriptors where you specify and then execute another application.
