Selecting appropriate ventilator settings decreases the risk of ventilator-induced lung injury. A decision support system (DSS) has been developed based on physiological models, which can advise on setting of tidal volume (Vt), respiratory frequency (f) and fraction of inspired oxygen (FiO2). The aim of this study is to assess the feasibility of the DSS by(More)
Management of mechanical ventilation in intensive care patients is complicated by conflicting clinical goals. Decision support systems (DSS) may support clinicians in finding the correct balance. The objective of this study was to evaluate a computerized model-based DSS for its advice on inspired oxygen fraction, tidal volume and respiratory frequency. The(More)
This paper describes progress in a model-based approach to building a decision support system for mechanical ventilation. It highlights that the process of building models promotes generation of ideas and describes three systems resulting from this process, i.e. for assessing pulmonary gas exchange, calculating arterial acid-base status; and optimizing(More)
