Failure to recognize the presence of auto-PEEP can lead to inappropriate ventilator changes. The only way to detect and measure PEEPi is to occlude the expiratory port at end expiration while monitoring airway pressure. Decreasing rate or increasing inspiratory flow (to decrease I/E ratio) may allow time for full exhalation. Consider administering bronchodilator therapy in the setting of bronchospasm. 20. What are the side effects of positive end-expiratory pressure? a.

It is therefore easier to synchronize the patient’s effort with the ventilator in the SIMV mode. In practice, most IMV is delivered as SIMV. Both modes involve additional work of breathing on the patient’s part. Pressure support can be added during the spontaneous breaths to alleviate this work. It may be advantageous to relieve as much work of breathing as possible in the early part of respiratory failure. 9. What are the pressure-limited types of ventilation? PSV, PRVC, HFV, and PCV. PSV is a mode of ventilation used in spontaneously breathing patients to decrease the imposed work of breathing from the endotracheal tube and to overcome resistance in the breathing circuit.

4. To distinguish ventricular from supraventricular tachycardia, transiently block AV node with adenosine intravenous push. If ventricular complex persists, it is ventricular tachycardia; if the complex stops, it is supraventricular tachycardia. 13. Why give digoxin? Digoxin is an effective AV nodal blocker, but it makes cardiomyocytes more excitable. By giving digoxin, you make supraventricular impulses more likely; but by blocking the AV node, you render these impulses less dangerous. 14. Why infuse digoxin over 30 to 60 minutes intravenously?
