The integration of ventilator graphics into the machine platforms has opened new vistas into the observation and evaluation of the interface between the patient and the mechanical ventilator. In the past, a pressure manometer and numeric readings gave us a limited view of the patient-ventilator interface. Now ventilator graphics allow us to see, in real-time the full interface between the patient and the ventilator.
In graphics 2 we will explore pressure ventilation to include Pressure Control Ventilation, Pressure support Ventilation, Adaptive Pressure Control Ventilation, and basic APRV waveforms.
