Bilevel Ventilation Theory and Application.

This presentation provides an overview of the theory of BiLevel modes of ventilation with a brief discussion of application. Airway Pressure Release Ventilation and BiLevel Positive Airway Pressure will be compared and contrasted. Published clinical evidence, describe theoretical concepts for areas where evidence is lacking will be reviewed, and a BiLevel simulator that illustrates the interaction of set ventilator parameters and outcome patient variables will be demonstrated. This is an advanced lecture that assumes familiarity with basic mechanical ventilation and pressure control modes in general.
