Student Study Note Cards

What is a ventilator? (RQ) (KH) Machine/device that can fully or partially substitute for the ventalitory work accomplished by the patient's muscles. (RQ) (KH)
This type of ventilator is set to deliver a tidal volume of 600ml. Only 450ml are actually being delivered to the patient. This vent contains a system that will compensate for the lost volume. What type of system is this? (ApQ) (KH) Closed-loop system (ApQ) (KH)
The ventilator you are working with in the ICU is a combination ventilator. What does this mean and what does each power source control?
