Abstract

Volume-targeted modes are designed to deliver a constant tidal volume (V(t)) at lowest possible pressure independently of changes in compliance, resistance, and leak of the respiratory system. We examined whether these volume-targeted modes respond rapidly enough to sudden changes in respiratory mechanics (e.g., selective intubation, surfactant administration, endotracheal tube kinking, de-kinking, obstruction), resulting in insufficient or excessive V(t) delivery.
