Pressure Support 3 – Setting the Level

This is the third tutorial on Pressure Support Ventilation. This tutorial discusses the thoracic pump – the inspiratory drive and transpulmonary pressure. It looks at when one can use Pressure Support and how to adjust the settings. I introduce the Rapid Shallow Breathing Index and provide a series of steps in adjusting the PS level. Finally I introduce an alternative version of PS known as Volume Support.
