mech vent ch 46

which types of ventilation is alveolar expansion during inspiration due to a decrease in pleural pressure? spontaneous ventilation/ negative pressure ventilation
describe in detail negative pressure ventilation (NVP) pressure decreases, volume increases, and chest wall expands
in which types of ventilation is alveolar expansion during inspiration due to an increase in alveolar pressure? positive pressure (bagging patient)
in which types of ventilation can pleural pressure become positive during inspiration? positive pressure ventilation
which conditions are associated with a lack of response to increase fio2 in patients receiving positive pressure ventilation? Shunt

list the benefits associated with administration of positive end expiratory pressure (PEEP) or continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP)
what values are considered a normal spontaneous tidal volume in ml/kg? give example 5-7ml/kg if patient is 60kg then multiply 60*5=300 and 60*7=420kg
what is the recommended tidal volume for mechanical ventilation in ml/kg? 5-7 or 4-8 with resp. failure
which condition may require high mechanical respiratory rates? ARDS
explain the increase v/q ratio when excessive positive end expiratory pressure (PEEP) is used. if you add too much peep it diminishes perfusion due to over inflation by redirecting blood flow away from good alveoli
what are the consequences of decreased resistance and compliance? needs more pressure to ventilate, less volume, less inspiratory and expiratory time, will deflate more quickly, increase RR
Identify at least five methods mean airway pressure may be increased anything that increases pressure: increase pressure, increase peep, increase I time and an inspiratory pause.
on what does volume delivered depend during pressure-targeted modes of ventilator support? pressure gradient, time, flow
describe in detail pressure limited modes of ventilator support. inspiratory flow varies with patient effort and lung mechanics, volume delivered at given pressure must decrease as compliance falls, active effort by the patient against inspiration will decrease delivered volume
the volume delivered by a pressure limited ventilator will increase or decrease under which conditions? lung compliance decreased then volume with decrease and if increase then volume will increase as well. if resistance increases the volume decreases and if the resistance decreases the volume will increase
describe safe settings for a lung recruitment maneuver as they relate to pressure and time pressure up to 50 cmh20, pressure applied for 1 to 3 minutes
the magnitude of WOB pt. depends on which factors? compliance, resistance, ventilator drive, trigger sensitivity, peak flow, cycling coordination, Vt
rank the modes of ventilation from greatest to least as they relate to a patients work of breathing CMV (AC) - 100% WOB, SIMV+PS, SIMV, PS, CPAP 0%
when bedside works of breathing measures are unavailable, you should adjust the level of pressure-supported ventilation (PSV) to: Spontaneous rate 15-25/min., Vt 5-8ml/kg
What level of plateau pressure increases the likelihood of causing lung injury? PP of 28cmh2o or greater likelihood of injury
primary indications for using positive end expiratory pressure (PEEP) in conjunction with mechanical ventilation include? improve oxygenation in patients with refractory hypoxemia
identify the indications and contraindications for positive end expiratory pressure (PEEP) most indicated? indication- improve oxygenation in patients with refractory hypoxemia, contraindications- tension pneumo, unilateral lung disease
identify the beneficial physiological effects of positive end expiratory pressure (PEEP) restored FRC avoids derecruitment, decreased shunt fraction, increased lung compliance, decreased WOB, increased PaO2 for a given FIO2
identify the detrimental effects of positive end expiratory pressure (PEEP) increased pulmonary vascular resistance, potential decrease in venous return and cardiac output, decreased renal and portal blood flow, increased ICP, increased dead space
what are the benefits of high inspiratory flows during positive pressure reduced air trapping
describe the physiological effects of adding a volume limited inflation hold to mandatory breaths decreased paco2, increased inspiratory time, decreased VD/VT
identify the volume controlled (VC) modes of mechanical ventilation VC-CMV continuous mandatory ventilation (AC, VC-IMV intermittent mandatory ventilation
Which mode of support provides all the patients minute ventilation as mandatory volume controlled breaths CMV, all breaths are mandatory and can be volume or pressure targeted. breaths also can be patient triggered or time triggered. when patient triggered, its also assist/control. When time triggered mode is called controlled vent or control mode.
In which mode does the clinician have the most control over the patients breath? CMV (patient has the least control)
Identify the modes of ventilator support that would result in the highest mean airway pressure any mode that the machine controls the breath (VC-CMV, VC-AC)
In which mode of ventilator support is muscle atrophy most likely to occur CMV because the patient is relying on machine for breaths so not using muscles
Identify key causes of patient-ventilator asynchrony and increased work of breathing during pressure-triggered volume-controlled continuous mandatory ventilation. when not sensitive enough VC-CMV (Pressure Support with be more synchronized)
Inspection of the airway pressure waveform of a patient receiving volume-controlled continuous mandatory ventilation assist control with constant flow reveals a large dip or drop in pressure at the beginning of inspiration. Which problem is most likely? patient is trying to take in more volume than being delivered and pressure will drop.
What actions can you use to decrease compressed volume loss during mechanical ventilation? add humidity, decrease volume, anything to reduce ventilator circuit or compliance of circuit.
After accounting for the compressed volume loss on a stable adult patient receiving vc-cmv at a preset volume of 700ml, you still note a 150ml difference between the expected and the actual delivered volume. What is causing problem? there is leak
which modes of ventilatory support are used to help decrease airway and alveolar pressure PC-CMV (PRessure modes
Describe permissive hypercapnia when CO2 is allowed to increased without letting the ph fall below 7.2
What mode of pressure controlled ventilation is designed to prevent alveoli with short time constants from collapsing, thereby improving oxygenation? APRV which created auto peep
A patient is switched from PC-CMV with PEEP to PC-IRV shows a good improvement in PaO2 but a decrease in tissue oxygenation. What would best explain this observation? PEEP too high
In Which mode of ventilatory support does the patient breathe spontaneously at an elevated airway pressure, with short, intermittent decreases in pressure to a lower level APRV
What does pressure supported ventilation consist of? pressure support vent. aka pressure support is a spont. mode of ventilation. Patient initiates every breath and the vent delivers support w/ the preset pressure value. With support from vent, the patient also regulates his own RR and Vt
What are 2 primary used for pressure support ventilation (PSV)? augmenting patients spontaneous Vt, overcoming the imposed work of breathing
For a patient with respiratory insufficiency, pressure-supported ventilation (PSV) has what advantages over spontaneous breathing? expect increase muscle activity
What spontaneous pressure controlled breath mode allows separate regulation of the inspiratory and expiratory breathing? Bilevel positive airway pressure (Bipap)
Which modes of ventilatory support combine the advantages of pressure-controlled and volume-controlled ventilation. PRVC (pressure regulated volume control), this is a pressure control mode, but adds a target Vt, so that the inspiratory pressure changes breath-by-breath up to a set point in order to maintain a stable Vt.
the delivered Vt is greater than the preset minimum Vt
What are some physiological advantages of volume-assured pressure-supported ventilation improved patient-ventilator synchrony and decreased work of breathing
What factor primarily determines the effect of positive pressure ventilation on the cardiac output? effect of PPV on the circulatory system depends primarily on mean pleural pressure and cardiovascular status
Identify the potential effects of positive pressure ventilation on the cardiovascular system decreas CO and decread level of arterial pressure

describe lung conditions which would be most prone to air-trapping one with high resistance and high compliance
What factors contribute to the development of auto peep decreased pulmonary vascular resistance
What patients are at greater risk for auto peep? those with high airway resistance, those with high expiratory flow resistance
Ventilatory support strategies likely to result in auto peep include: CMV, IRV, low inspiratory flows, not low rate IMV
