Procedure Pressure settings * Set expiratory positive pressure, CPAP or positive end-expiratory pressure (PEEP) at 3-5 cm * Set inspiratory pressure (or pressure support) at 8-10 cm * Inspiratory pressure should be set higher than expiratory pressure * If the patient has difficulty during inspiration, triggering breaths, increase the expiratory positive airway pressure * If tidal volumes are shallow (< 7 ml/kg), increase inspiratory pressures * In hypoxic patients, increase the expiratory pressure at increments of 2 cm [H.
