Recruitment to Inflation Ratio

Characterize lung recruitability to personalize PEEP. Adapted from an algorithm developed by The Toronto Centre of Excellence in Mechanical Ventilation (CoEMV).

The global unit selector only affects unanswered questions
1.Airway Opening Pressure
2.High PEEP
3.Set Tidal Volume (VT)
4.VT exhaled @ high PEEP
5.Low PEEP
6.VT exhaled from high to low PEEP
7.Plateau Pressure (at low PEEP)

1. Airway Opening Pressure

More Information

Airway closure = lower inflection point during a slow-flow (quasi-static) pressure-volume curve. Use the technique described in this video to measure airway opening pressure (AOP).
