Heh guys, I was doing my UW and i got some mechanical ventilation (MV)setting quetions which i didnt understand. I guess i need to do Pulmo elective or something . But I hope someone can explain them to me here. My problem is this:
1. What are the indications for putting pt on MV?
2. What are the intial setting?
3. What/How would you correct the setting after first ABG for optimal pt benefits?
4. What are the appropriate levels of gas components for pt on MV?
Like if your ABG came back and everything in is with in range but PaO2=105, then what would u do next?
Like if your pt is respi alk or acidosis what would u do next? Specific situation post intial ABG.
Thanks you guys in advance for all ur inputs.
