Pulmonary ventilators for intensive care provide information on, among many other patient respiratory parameters, patient resistance, compliance and 'work of breathing' values calculated from pressure and flow data patterns according to a widely utilized algorithm. The effects induced by the breathing circuit and analogue filtering of the ventilator measuring system are experimentally investigated during controlled ventilation. Three main phenomena are observed: (a) errors in calculation of… CONTINUE READING
