Tidal volume measurement error in pressure control modes of mechanical ventilation: A model study

Abstract

UNLABELLED Tidal volume (VT) measurement during pressure control (PC) ventilation with preset inspiratory time may produce errors due to patient inspiratory effort. We evaluated VT error in 3 common ICU ventilators. METHODS Simulated patient: 60kg adult with ARDS using IngMar Medical ASL 5000 having moderate inspiratory effort. Ventilators evaluated… (More)
