Introduction. The appearance and intensity of oxidative stress were analyzed in the course of mechanical ventilation and parameters that could point toward potential lung damage. Material and methods. In three time intervals on day 1, 3 and 7 of mechanical ventilation, parameters such as: triglycerides, cholesterol, lactate, serum lactic dehydrogenase, acid-base balance and lipid peroxidation products - thiobarbituric acid reactive substances, were followed in 30 patients with head injuries. Results. A decrease in the level of partial oxygen pressure (PaO2) (p
