Example text

In practice, increasing PEEP appears to be the safest and most effective way to achieve optimal Paw , in part because normally, the greatest proportion of the respiratory cycle is the expiratory phase. Control variables for high-frequency jet ventilators (HFJVs) are similar to those for conventional ventilation. However, it should be noted that the I:E ratio of HFJVs is very short (typically 1:6 or even less); therefore, to maintain adequate Paw , the PEEP typically needs to be raised by 2 to 4 cm H2O from the baseline on conventional ventilation.

However, those areas of the lung, which already are well expanded, may be further inflated, which can increase rather than decrease pulmonary vascular resistance in those areas. The overall effect on pulmonary blood flow produced by positive-pressure ventilation depends on the initial lung volume status of the various functional lung regions and the net result of the therapy on global pulmonary blood flow. 30 CHAPTER 2 Physiologic Principles CONTROL OF VENTILATION The respiratory control center in the newborn infant is immature compared to that of adults and therefore more easily influenced by changes in acid−base status, temperature, sleep state, hypoxia, medications, and other variables.

The ventilator rate is controlled either directly or by altering the inspiratory and/or expiratory time. VT is controlled in different ways depending on the type of ventilator. With volume-controlled ventilators, VT can be manipulated directly. However, the volume that is controlled is the volume injected into the ventilator circuit, not directly into the patient’s lungs. 84 Consequently, the ability to directly control effective VT is greatly limited. With time-cycled pressure-limited devices, adjustments that increase ΔP (pressure amplitude or difference between PIP and PEEP) will increase VT, provided the compliance remains the same.
