What are the artificial airways that exist? Explain each one of these.
Explain the following ventilation modes:
Non-invasive ventilation (NIV)
Continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP)
Assist-control ventilation (AC or ACMV)
Synchronized intermittent mandatory ventilation (SIMV)
Positive end-expiratory pressure (PEEP)
Pressure support ventilation (PSV)
Pressure control ventilation (PCV)
Independent lung ventilation (SIL)
High-frequency ventilation (HFV)
What is a VQ scan? What is it for?
Explains the settings of a mechanical fan (ventilator settings)
Noninvasive ventilation (NIV) refers to the administration of ventilatory support without using an invasive artificial airway... View the full answer
