Within 3 minutes, her status improved, and her respiratory rate decreased to 10 breaths/min. 4). Her spontaneous rate was 18 and tidal volumes were approximately 500 mL. She was comfortable. The following day, Ms West was successfully extubated following a 1-hour trial of continuous positive airway pressure. While many more respiratory waveforms were available on Ms West’s ventilator, the clinicians focused on the use of pressure-time and flow-time waveforms. 3 Determining the presence of auto-PEEP using flowtime waveforms.

2004;110:2721–2746. Description This expert consensus paper is a comprehensive document outlining recommendations for bedside arrhythmia monitoring, ST-segment monitoring and QT-interval monitoring in pediatric and adult patients in the hospital. In the absence of published clinical trials in the area of hospital cardiac monitoring, this document provides expert opinions based upon clinical experience and related research in the field of electrocardiography. Recommendations follow the rating system used by the American College of Cardiology Emergency Cardiac Care Committee and consist of the following categories: Class I: Cardiac monitoring is indicated in most, if not all, patients in this group.

Thus, patient-ventilator dyssynchrony is quickly detected. Additional uses include the identification of ventilator modes, graphic detection of the presence of auto-PEEP, evaluation of compliance and resistance, improved accuracy in the measurement of hemodynamic values, and assessment of breakthrough respiratory efforts when chemical muscle relaxants are being used. These applications are described in the protocol. As noted previously, respiratory waveform graphics are commonly integrated into new ventilator systems and are provided via a screen mounted on top of the ventilator.
