Incentive spirometry decreases respiratory complications following major abdominal surgery. Surgeon 5:339-342, 2007. Jeffrey L. Johnson, MD, and James B. Haenel, RRT CHAPTER 6 MECHANICAL VENTILATION 1. Why do patients need mechanical ventilation? There are three basic categories of need when it comes to mechanical ventilation (MV): (1) inadequate respiratory drive; (2) inability to maintain adequate alveolar ventilation; and (3) hypoxia. The decision to provide MV should be based on clinical examination and assessment of gas exchange by arterial blood gas (ABG) analysis as needed.

9. What are the pressure-limited types of ventilation? PSV, PRVC, HFV, and PCV. PSV is a mode of ventilation used in spontaneously breathing patients to decrease the imposed work of breathing from the endotracheal tube and to overcome resistance in the breathing circuit. It is often used to ‘‘wean’’ or determine the readiness of a patient to discontinue MV. PSV is a pure assisted form of ventilation. The patient must always trigger the breath (not the machine). This causes the ventilator to deliver a cliniciandetermined preset pressure, augmenting the tidal volume (VT).

Common derangements necessitating the need for MV include primary parenchymal disorders, such as pneumonia, pulmonary edema, or pulmonary contusion, and systemic disease that indirectly compromises pulmonary function, such as sepsis or central nervous system (CNS) dysfunction. 2. Does mechanical ventilation make the lung better? Not really. In the setting of respiratory failure, the aim is to support gas exchange while the underlying disease process is reversed. , ventilator induced lung injury [VILI]) than to fix it.
