      Effects ofventilator hyperinflation on pulmonary function and secretion clearance in adults receiving mechanical ventilation: a systematic review with meta-analysis.
      We acknowledge the authors for this well-designed review, including a qualitative and quantitative analysis of the clinical trials and the degree of evidence of the interventions addressed. However, we would like to raise some considerations that may help contextualize and interpret the results.
