Modes of Ventilation

  • CPAP (continuous positive pressure ventilation)
  • CMV (controlled mandatory ventilation)
  • A/C (assist/ control)
  • IMV (intermittent mandatory ventilation)
  • PSV (pressure support ventilation)
  • PCV (pressure control ventilation)
  • APRV (airway pressure release ventilation a.k.a. BiLEVEL)

          In all modes Vt * RR controls CO2, while PEEP * FIO2 controls oxygenation.
