Spanish term or phrase:PÉRDIDA DEL RECLUTAMIENTO ALVEOLAR
Es un texto sobre el test de apnea para determinar la muerte encefálica.
"(...) Esta técnica sería especialmente útil en aquellos casos con relación Pa/FiO2 baja no corregible, dado el bajo riesgo de hipoxemia por el corto tiempo de desconexión y el escaso potencia deletéreo sobre la función pulmonar, ante la MINIMIZACIÓN DE LA PÉRDIDA DEL RECLUTAMIENTO ALVEOLAR, que sí se produce con tiempos de desconexión más prolongados".
Explanation: I tried to post this last night, but server problems intervened:
"We studied endotracheal suctioning-induced alveolar derecruitment and its prevention in nine patients with acute lung injury."
The second URL is a Google Scholar search for "alveolar derecruitment". (150 hits on Scholar) There were only 3 hits in same venue "loss of alveolar recruitment".
A Google Scholar search for -derecruitment + "alveolar recruitment" showed the relationship.
Also see the URL below (here in the text) for a study that seems to address a topic similar to your posted context.
I see that one of the persons agreeing with Oso has mentioned "derecruitment". Feel free to allocate points on that basis.
Explanation: Hola albinamed,
Buena suerte y saludos del Oso ¶:^)
Nota: No tengo la plena seguridad, por favor espera las aportaciones de los colegas duchos en el tema.

1.) From the American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine:
\"...***Alveolar recruitment*** can be defined as the re-expansion of lung regions that remain nonventilated throughout the respiratory cycles generated by the mechanical ventilator. In patients with ARDS, alveolar recruitment has two components: a \"permanent\" recruitment resulting from the effects of PEEP, and a \"cyclic\" recruitment resulting from the effects of tidal volume (1). PEEP, by preventing the end-expiratory collapse of some lung areas, keeps them fully open throughout the respiratory cycle, whereas each tidal volume recruits some of the lung regions that re-collapse during the following expiration. ...\" http://ajrccm.atsjournals.org/cgi/content/full/165/4/551
2.) \"...With prior preparation, adequate monitoring and sedation, material according to the size of the patient and correct techniques, there are few complications. However, the procedure can produce trauma and obstruction of the airway, bronchial hemorrhage, barotrauma, ***loss of alveolar recruitment***, bronchospasm, hypoxemia, bradycardia, and bronchopulmonary infection. ...\" www.elsevier.com/homepage/sah/ spd/2004sample_pdfs/iss2.abst/24anes.pdf
