Volume Control versus Pressure Control

Breaths in Pressure controlled CMV are patient-triggered, pressure-targeted and time-cycled (assisted breath) or time-triggered (machine), pressure targeted and time-cycled (controlled breath). In voume controled CMV, breaths are volume-targeted with same other paramters!

Synchronized Intermittent Mandatory Ventilation (SIMV)

In SIMB a preset respiratory rate is delivered at a specified time interval. If the patient initiate breaths in the synchronized windwo, they will be assisted. The patient can breathe spontaneously in between the mandatory breaths and those breaths can be pressure supported.

Continuous Mandatory Ventilation (CMV): Volume Control CMV

Breaths in volume-controlled CMV are patient-triggered, volume targeted and time-cycled (assisted breath) or time-triggered (machine), volume-targeted and time-cycled (controlled breath)!

Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP)

Continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) is the use of continuous positive pressure to maintain a continuous level of positive airway pressure in a spontaneously breathing patient

Should we use pressure control or volume control in the ventilatory management of ARDS?

The best mode to be used in the ventilatory management of ARDS is the mode that provides a control on both pressure and volume to ensure that the tidal volume will not exceed 4-6 mL per Kg and Plateau pressure not more than 30 cm H2O. PRVC controls the volume at the desired value and limits the pressure not to exceed 30 cm of water!

Open Lung Tool

Open lung ventilation is a strategy that is utilized by several modes of mechanical ventilation to combine low tidal volume and applied PEEP to maximize recruitment of alveoli. The low tidal volume aims to minimize alveolar overdistention and the PEEP minimizes cyclic atelectasis. Working in tandem the effects from both decrease the risk of ventilator-associated lung injury

Pressure Regulated Volume Control (PRVC)


This session gives a detailed description of "Pressure Regulated Volume Control" mode of ventilation and describes how the pressure is gradually regulated up or down with any change in the lung compliance or airway resistance.
