Dual-control modes of mechanical ventilation


Journal Article

Ventilator manufacturers have attempted to answer the concerns of clinicians related to PCV and VCV by providing dual control of breaths or by using closed-loop control. The current literature suggests that VAPSV is a safe and effective method to improve patient-ventilator synchrony and reduce the WOB. However, results have been reported in only 17 patients ventilated with a commercial device. The clinical utility of PRVC and VS remains to be elucidated.
