    • What can we manipulate ?
    • Minute ventilation
    • Pressure gradient
    • Surface are
    • Pulmonary vasculature
    • Solubility
    • How can we do this ?
  • 8. Applied Physics
    • Compliance
    • Static compliance
    • Dynamic compliance
    • Resistance
    • Work of breathing
    • Flow
    • Pressure
    • Volume
    • Surface area
    What can we manipulate ?
  • 9. Compliance Compliance is a quotient between volume and corresponding pressure change. C = V P Dynamic compliance Static compliance
  • 10. The compliance of any structure is the ease is with which the structure distends ( C= ∆ V / ∆ P) C O M P L I A N C E

  • 14. Flow ……………………. Flow indicates circulation of an element per unit of time through a given place Flow…. Linear Turbulent
  • 16. Pressure ……………. Represents the force that a volume of gas exercises upon a unit area. Kinetic theory states that gas molecules bomb the walls of a container . If volume remains constant , pressure varies in direct proportion to Temperature. If temperature remains constant , pressure varies in inverse relation to Volume . Increase in pressure decreases volume
  • 17. Resistance …………… Resistance is defined as the relationship between pressure (p) and flow ( 0 ) Therefore important when there is air flow. R = ----------- Resistance depends upon Diameter of airway Length of airway Viscosity and density of air Resistance during inspiration Resistance during expiration P O

    • C ycle variables
    • Base line
    Mechanical Ventilation Concept
  • 20. Conditional variables alone or in combination are analyzed by Ventilator’s control logic. The state of this variable determines as to which of two types of breath would be delivered. SIMV is based on timing window and accordingly the ventilator delivers ……………………………. a pressure triggered ( patient ) or time triggered ( machine) breath. In this situation the patient effort and time are conditional variables for determining triggering. CONDITIONAL VARIABLE
    • Conditional variables
    • Pressure
    • Volume
    • Flow
    • Time
  • 21. Control variable manipulates the conditional to cause inspiration. Pressure , volume , flow and time are control variables. The behavior of control Variable remains constant in spite of changed Ventilatory load. CONRTOL VARIALBE
  • 22. Control variable manipulates the conditionals to cause inspiration. PRESSURE , VOLUME , FLOW and time are control variables. The behavior of control Variable remains constant in spite of changed Ventilatory load. CONRTOL VARIALBE Pressure Rectangular Exponential
  • 23. Control variable manipulates the conditional to cause inspiration. Pressure , VOLUME , FLOW and time are control variables. The behavior of control Variable remains constant in spite of changed Ventilatory load. CONRTOL VARIALBE Volume Ramp Sinusoidal
  • 24. Control variable manipulates the conditional to cause inspiration. PRESSURE , VOLUME , FLOW and time are control variables. The behavior of control Variable remains constant in spite of changed Ventilatory load. CONRTOL VARIALBE Flow sinusoidal rectangle ramp ramp exponential
  • 25. During pressure support ventilation though one selects a level of support the Inspiration continues till predetermined flow rate or termination criteria is reached. During PSV patient determines the Rate …………….. Inspiratory time… Flow…………….. LIMIT VARIBALE

Volume limited pressure limited Advantages Tidal Volume guaranteed Precise control of Inspiratory flow Easy detection of changed respiratory impedance Precise control pf pressure Decelerating flow reported to improve distribution of ventilation decrease dead space ventilation decrease PIP match Inspiratory flow Disadvantages PIP vary Inspiratory flow may not match the patients needs Variable tidal volume Changes in impedance not easily detected

  • 32. SIMV Patient triggered ventilation Synchronized to patient breath if the threshold is met . Patient controlled variables Respiratory rate Inspiratory time Clinician controlled variables PIP if pressure limited Tidal volume if volume cycled Inspiratory time if time cycled Flow SIMV rate Flow cycling ……. Insp. Terminated at % of peak flow rather than time………… Synchronizes expiratory and Insp. flow thus total synchrony achieved .
  • 33. When SIMV  is used, the patient receives three different types of breath: The controlled (Mandatory) breath. Assisted (synchronized) breaths. Spontaneous breaths, which can be pressure supported. A B C A .Controlled and time triggered B .Spontaneous C .Synchronized and assisted Flow PaW Volume Trigger
  • 34. Spontaneous breath Assisted breath Back up ventilation period Controlled breath Spontaneous volume Trigger Spontaneous breath Pressure Volume
  • 35.  
  • 36. Pressure support
    • Pressure support ventilation is a spontaneous mode of ventilation.
    • Inspiratory effort is assisted by the ventilator at an
    • airway pressure that remains constant during the phase of inspiration.
    • Inspiration is terminated when the peak Inspiratory flow reaches a preset level. (usually 25%)
    • Patient determines………………
    • Rate
    • Inspiratory time
    • Airflow
  • 37.  
  • 38. PRVC A control mode, which delivers a set tidal volume with each breath at the lowest possible peak pressure. Delivers the breath with a decelerating flow pattern that is thought to be less injurious to the lung……
  • 39.
    • Volume Support
      • Equivalent to pressure support
      • set a “goal” tidal volume
      • the machine watches the delivered volumes and adjusts the pressure support to meet desired “goal” within limits set by you.
  • 40.
    • Airway Pressure Release Ventilation
      • Can be thought of as giving a patient two different levels of CPAP
      • Set “high” and “low” pressures with release time.
      • Length of time at “high” pressure generally greater than length of time at “low” pressure.
      • By “releasing” to lower pressure, lung volume is allowed to decrease to FRC
