To compare patient–ventilator interaction during PSV and PAV+ in patients that are difficult to wean. This was a physiologic study involving 11 patients. During three consecutive trials (PSV first trial—PSV1, followed by PAV+, followed by a second PSV trial—PSV2, with the same settings as PSV1) we evaluated mechanical and patient respiratory pattern; inspiratory effort from excursion Pdi (swingPdi), and pressure–time products of the transdiaphragmatic (PTPdi) pressures. Inspiratory (delaytrinsp… CONTINUE READING
