About Speakers Audience




Patient-ventilator synchrony during non-invasive ventilation is

associated with better tolerance and patient comfort1. However,

asynchrony is still common and may lead to increased work of

breathing and non-invasive ventilation failure2. Modern ventilators

have many tools to aid with patient-ventilator synchrony, including

the automation of synchrony tools, such as rise time control,

inspiration termination control and leak compensation.

This lecture will discuss:

•The importance of achieving better patient-ventilator synchrony and the complexity of asynchronies

•Detection of asynchronies

•Ventilator strategies to optimize patient-ventilator synchrony

•Automation of synchrony tools
