Basics of Mechanical Ventilation in Neonates


Ventilator care requires a team effort.

Everyone involved has to get along

and trust one another!


Prevention of alveolar collapse

◘ Functional residual capacty (FRC).

◘ Surfactant .

◘Elatic-recoil ( compliance).

◘ Intrapleural pressure(-4mmHg) during inspiration and (+4mmHg) during inspiration .

◘ If surfactant is absent , Intrapleural pressure negativity may be increased up to (-20mmHg).




1)Tidal Volume (Vt)

◘ (Vt) = 6-10 mL/kg/Breath.

◘RR is usually 30-60 BPM.

2) minute volume

= (Vt- Dead space)x RR.

↑ (PIP)→↑Tidal Volume →↑minute volume .


3) Compliance = 0.004 L/cmH2O.

= Change in volume (mL) = 0.004 L/cmH2O.

Change in pressure(cmH2O)

4)Resistance = 30cm H2O/L/sec

Change in pressure (cmH2O)= 30cm H2O/L/sec

Change in flow (L/sec)

NB., Resistance X Compliance = 1Time constant

1Time constant =0.004 L/cmH2O. X 30cm H2O/L/sec =12


4)one Time constant = Resistance X Compliance

◘ one time constant → 63% equilibration of pressure inside & outside the alveoli.

◘ we need 3 time constant →97% equilibration of pressure inside & outside the alveoli.

  • If resistance =30cm H2O/L/sec

  • compliance = 0.004 L/cmH2O.

  • One time constant =30 X 0.004 = 0.12 seconds.

  • We need 3time constant to inflate and deflate the lung (3 X 0.12 seconds = 0.36 seconds=Ti ).

  • as aresult Te= 2 or 3 X 0.36seconds.

  • So I/E ratio = 1:2 or 1:3 .



Types of Mechanical Ventilators

  • Volumev- cycled ventilators.لمجرد المعرفة

  • Pressure ventilators . لمجرد المعرفة

  • Pressure-limited, time-cycled, continuous-flow ventilators .هام جدا

  • Patient–triggered ventilators (PTV).هام جدا



Pressure-limited, time-cycled,

continuous-flow ventilators Ventilators

  • You select (PIP)→ (pressure-limited).

  • You select inspiratory time → (time-cycled).

  • (Continuous flow) →Fresh heated humidified gas is delivered to the patient throughout the respiratory cycle.



(PIP) minus(PEEP)

  • (PIP) → The maximum pressure reached during inspiration. If PIP is too low → low VT. If PIP too high → high VT → Hyperinflation and air leak → Impedance مقاومةof venous return.

  • (Optimum (PEEP) is 4-6 cmH2O).

  • High PEEP >8 cmH2O .,→

–Reduces gradient between PIP & PEEP→ (↓ VT) .

–Decreases venous return .

–Increases pulmonary air leaks .

–Produces CO2 retention .


(FiO2)

  • why Increase in FiO2 improves oxygenation ? ↑ oxygen tension inside the alveoli→ ↑ r diffusion gradient → good oxygenation.

  • Why Oxygen and Paw balance is essentiaL ? to minimize lung damage.

  • Why Paw should be ↓ before a very low FiO2 is reached During weaning. to avoid a high incidence of air leak is observed.


RR, secrets

  • ↑ RR → ↑ (CO2 wash).

  • RR(60 BPM) allows for PIP reduction in PIP → ↓ incidence of pneumothorax with about 50% .

  • Most neonates have short time constants so they can tolerate (RR60-70 Bpm) and short (Te) without marked gas trapping .

  • RR Determinesيحدد minute ventilation(RR×VT),thus CO2 elimination.


Minute alveolar ventilation

Minute alveolar ventilation

= (Tidal volume – Dead space) X Frequency.

  • Tidal volume,is determined mainly with pressure gradient between inspiration and expiration i.e. (PIP) minus (PEEP).


Ti and Te

●(Ti)is .3 - . 5 seconds for LBW

and .5 - .6 seconds for larger infants

●Depends on the pulmonary mechanics:

– Compliance .

– Resistance .

–Time constant.

I:E ratio

● It should NOT be reversed

● I:E ratio should NOT be less than 1:1.2


mean airway pressure

  • MAP + FiO2 → determines oxygenation.why?

  • An ↑ in PIP and PEEP→ ↑ MAP → ↑ oxygenation more than ↑ in the I:E ratio.

  • NB., ↑↑↑ Paw →alveolar over distension with right to left shunt.

Flow

Flow rates of 6-10 liter/min are usually sufficient.


Modes of venilation

Who is theCommander?


A)Non-triggeredModes.

1.Controlled Mandatory Ventilation (CMV) or IPPV:

– IPPV (intermittent positive pressure ventilation ).

–Ventilator rate is set > infant's spontaneous.

– RR (usually 50-80 breaths/min).

2.Intermittent Mandatory Ventilation (IMV):

–Ventilator rate is set < infant's spontaneous breaths.

– RR (<30 breaths/min).

– spontaneous breaths above the set rate are not assisted.


B) Patient–Triggered Ventilators (PTV)

  • Modification of conventional ventilation ( IMV or IPPV) by adding synchorinization (S).

  • ASensor detect the Inspiratory efforts of the baby by so triggering ( the ventilator setting.

  • the patient is able to initiate (trigger) ventilator breaths.


PTV is used in two modes

  • Assist Control Mode (A/C) or sippv

    • All breath initiated by patient is triggered= Assist.

    • Back up rate = ippv = ControL MV.

    • If apnea occur at any time baby will be ventilated.

  • Synchronized Intermttent Mandatory Ventilation (SIMV):

    • Preset rate that is triggered,

    • other patient breath is not assisted.


Indications of Mechanical Ventilation

  • hypoxemia→ with PaO2 less than 50 mmHg despite FiO2 of 0.8.

  • Respiratory acidosis → pH of less than 7.20 to 7.25, or PaCO2 above 60 mmHg.

  • Severe prolonged apnea.

  • Frequent intermittent apnea unresponsive to drug therapy.

  • Relieving work of breathing in an infant with signs of respiratory difficulty.


Blood Gases Changesby Ventilator Setting




Monitoring The Infant during Mechanical Ventilation

  • (ABG)) .,

    • Obtain a blood gas within 15-30 minutes of any change in ventilator settings.

    • Obtain a blood gas every 6 hours unless a sudden change in the infant's condition occurs.

    • Continuous monitoring of the O2 saturation level as well as the HR and RR is necessary.


Paralysis and Sedation

  • It is not routinely indicated.

  • It may be used in irritable infants with their spontaneous respiration is out of phase with the ventilator( as in modes with preset rates as in ippv and imv) .

  • in infants with RDS→ ↓dynamic lung compliance →↑ airway resistance, the removal of the infant’s respiratory effort contribution to tidal breathing.

  • after initiation of neuromuscular blockadeit is necessary to increase ventilator pressure


Weaning

  • Parameters gradually decreased (PIP 2 cm H2O, FiO2 5%, Rate 5 BPM).

  • 1. Reduce FiO2 to 80% before changing PIP, I:E or PEEP.

  • 2. Reduce PIP as clinically indicated.

  • 3. Reduce FiO2 to less than 60%

  • 4. Reduce inspiratory time.

  • 5. Reduce PIP to 10-14 cm H2O (Larger babies may be extubated with PIP 14-18)

  • 6. Reduce rate to 20 -40 /BPM then Te should be prolonged.


Weaning (cont.)

  • 7.preterm infants → Use of nasal CPAP → to avoid atelectasis.

  • 8.prolonged intubation or previous failure of extubation → a short course of steroids may facilitate extubation.

  • 9.If stridor caused by laryngeal edema develops after extubation, →nebulization with adrenaline.
