Pressure controlled ventilation (PCV) uses a decelerating flow which reaches the highest possible value at the beginning of inspiration, while having a preset pressure limitation with no minimum level for tidal volume.
Pressure-controlled ventilation (PCV) has inspiratory pressure and respiratory frequency as constant parameters, while the tidal volume achieved depends on lung compliance and resistance.
Ventilation strategy using low tidal volumes, recruitment maneuvers, and high positive end-expiratory pressure for acute lung injury and acute respiratory distress syndrome.
Pressure control or pressure-regulated volume-controlled ventilation compared with volume-controlled ventilation, may deliver lower tidal volumes than those programmed in high resistance situations, leading to hypoventilation; [29] therefore, volume-controlled modes should be considered in children with bronchiolitis.
Ventilation with lower tidal volumes as compared with traditional tidal volumes for acute lung injury and the acute respiratory distress syndrome.
SIMV settings were determined by the treating intensivist according to individual preference and patient condition, based on tidal volume of 6-10 mL/kg, respiratory rate of 10-18 b/min, PEEP of 2-12 cm [H.
Guidelines for the management of ALI and the more severe ARDS center around reduced tidal volumes (6 ml/kg) and lower plateau pressures (<30 cm [H.
Their pulse, temperature, blood pressure, respiratory rate and tidal volume were recorded hourly.
However, further reductions in tidal volume (and plateau pressure) may be beneficial.
