Monitoring of patient-ventilator interactions at the bedside involves evaluation of patient breathing pattern on ventilator settings. One goal of mechanical ventilation is to have ventilator-assisted breathing coincide with patient breathing. The objectives of this goal are to have patient breath initiation result in ventilator triggering without undue patient effort, to match assisted-breath Cited by: Care of Mechanically Ventilated Patients guides clinicians’ practice in the following categories: airway management, modes and methods of mechanical ventilation, weaning, sedation and neuromuscular blockade, nutrition support, and home care management of ventilator-assisted patients. The Ventilator-assisted Individuals Study Article (PDF Available) in Chest 98(2) September with 59 Reads How we measure 'reads'. Oral hygiene is a critical element of patient care, particularly among patients who need ventilator-assisted equipment. The objective of this study was to explore the current status of oral care.
Critical care nurses often need help with ventilator modes and types of usage and this book is a great resource."Score: 96, 4 StarsDoody's Medical Reviews The only book written about mechanical ventilation by nurses for nurses, this text fills a void in addressing high-level patient care and management specific to critical care nurses.

AACN Protocols for Practice: Care of Mechanically Ventilated Patients. Summary The care of the mechanically ventilated patient is at the core of a nurse’s clinical practice in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU). Published work relating to the numerous nursing issues of the care of the mechanically ventilated patient inFile Size: KB. Homecare for ventilator-assisted individuals with progressive neuromuscular disease causes significant burden to informal care-givers. Approaches to lessen this burden, such as increased paid care, improved professional support and respite care, may enable home ventilation to be a more sustainable modality of care.
