Understanding the regulation of breathing in the critical care patient is multifaceted, especially in ventilator-dependent patients who must interact with artificial respiration. Mechanical ventilation originally consisted of simple, manually-driven pump devices, but it has developed into advanced positive pressure ventilators for continuous support of patients in respiratory failure. This evolution has resulted in mechanical ventilators that deliver assist intermittently, attempting to mimic… CONTINUE READING
