Autotriggering during pressure support ventilation due to cardiogenic oscillations.


Newer generation anesthesia machines are equipped with a pressure support mode of ventilation, which can be used to support spontaneous ventilation in anesthetized patients. The Drager Apollo anesthesia machine uses an inspiratory limb hot-wire flow sensor to measure inspiratory flow rates. Detected flow rates that exceed the pressure support flow trigger… (More)
