Functioning of ICU ventilators under hyperbaric conditions – comparison of volume- and pressure-controlled modes


Objective: To evaluate the function of four currently available, not specifically modified time-cycled ICU ventilators (EVITA 4, Oxylog 2000 HBO and Microvent from Drägerwerk, Germany and Servo 900C, Siemens-Elema, Sweden) under hyperbaric conditions using volume-controlled ventilation (VCV) and, if available, pressure-controlled ventilation (PCV).¶Design… (More)
