BPS (back up power source) Power to BDU and GUI only, 30 min limit, Switches to BPS automatically when power is interupted
SST (short self test) Perform when changing circuit, changing humidifier type, prior to new pt

Pt vent check Assess pt, note vent type, tube placement, additional equipment (humidifier, suction, check tube), suction, drain tubing, check cuff pressure, measure weaning parameters, complete check form
A-a gradient [(Pb-47) FiO2 ] - PaCO2 x 1.25 all that minus PaO2
When adjusting PEEP MUST HAVE ORDER , ↓/↑ in increments of 2., check change PIP alarm and low PEEP alarm, assess with ABG, (t
Adjusting PEEP can cause decrease in venous return
Compliance equation Vt / (plateau pressure- PEEP) This shows sign of improvement or deteriation of pt.
When pt is getting worse its a decrease in compliance (stiff)
HIGH PIP alarm will go off if pt coughs, bites tube, fights tube, needs suctioning, air trapping, obstructed tube, lungs stuff...
The Low exhaled volume alarm can go off if exhaled volume measured is less that the set, leak, disconnect, pt is in spontaneous mode and not breathing as deep as when the alarm was set.
