abstract

  • Flow triggering offers an excellent complement to PSV because it improves patient comfort and reduces the magnitude of the inspiratory effort as well as the delay time between inspiratory muscle contraction and gas flow. It augments gas exchange at no metabolic cost to the patient while reducing the work of breathing.
