Example text

In the SIMV breath, the patient starts a breath but the ventilator then provides positive pressure. The amount of pressure drop needed to trigger the ventilator and the delay time until the ventilator responds are extremely variable from ventilator to ventilator. The proper measurement of PEEP becomes difficult because of this interaction. As can be seen in Figure 4, before measurable flow occurs, the patient has drawn the pressure below the PEEP value. The monitor analyzes the pressure waveform back in time from the beginning of a breath to determine PEEP and minimum pressure which can provide an indication of the strength of the patient or improper adjustment of the ventilator.

Whenever we measure arterial blood gases, we enter the results via keyboard, and Vn/VT is calculated using the PaC02. If minute ventilation (VE) is measured and entered v~­ keyboard, oxygen consumption is calculated by this relationship: This unusual formula is used because, in addition to minute ventilation, it requires only data that we record for other purposes. Carbon dioxide production (VC02) can be calculated thus: =~ R AUTOMATED ESTIMATION OF RESPIRATORY DEAD SPACE 31 RESULTS We determined the completeness of gas mixing in the mixing chamber by analyzing expired gas from mechanically ventilated patients and comparing the result with the result of analysis of a simultaneously collected bag.
