Vents Made Easy

Ventilators Made Easy Introduction

Respiratory rate can be determined by the: ventilator ,patient
Tidal volume can be delivered as a fixed: volume, pressure
Define Tidal Volume settings: If the ventilator is set to deliver a volume (let’s say 500 cc), then no matter what (within reason), the ventilator will push 500 cc through its tubing into the patient.
Define Respiratory rate: The breaths can be triggered by either time or alternatively, if the patient tries to take a breath, the breath can be triggered by the patient’s inspiratory effort.
Define Flow rate: The flow rate is how fast the air enters the patient. In a volume regulated mode the ventilator controls how fast the breath is delivered.
SIMV synchronized intermittent mandatory ventilation
MMV mandatory minute ventilation
PCV pressure control ventilation plus
A/C assist control
