  5. Resistive and Elastive Forces DYNAMIC CHARACTERISTICS: dP = dV / Cdyn RESISTANCE: dPresistive= R x Flow STATIC COMPLIANCE: dPdistensive = dV / Cst dP = dPresist. + dP dist. dP = R x Flow + dV / C st

  6. Assessment of static P-V curveSuper-syringe method: Volume • Stepwise inflation from a big syringe with multiply occlusions at each volumes to record recoil pressure • Time consuming • Cumbersome to perform • Difficult to standardize • Patient must be paralysed, connected to a special equipment • Great risk of oxygen desaturation Pressure

  7. Assessment of static P-V curveSlow Flow Single Inflation Method • Slow (5-10 lpm) inspiratory flow with large Vt and ZEEP • The inspiratory curve of the dynamic P-V loop closely approximates the static curve • The flow-resistive pressure component could be subtracted • Easy to perform, fast and relatively comfortable Servillo: AJRCCM 1997 Lu: AJRCCM 1999 Volume Static curve UPIflex inspiration LPIflex Pressure

  18. Positive Pressure Ventilation: The Equation of Motion • In a passive subject, airway pressure represents the entire pressure (P) applied across the respiratory system. • The work required to deliver a tidal breath (Wb) = tidal volume (VT) x airway pressure • The pressure (P) associated with the delivery of a tidal breath is defined by the simplified equation of motion of the respiratory system (lungs & chest wall): P = VT/CR+ VT/Ti x RR + PEEP total P elastic P resistive P elastic Where CR = compliance of the respiratory system, Ti = inspiratory time and VT/Ti = Flow, RR = resistance of the respiratory system and PEEP total = the alveolar pressure at the end of expiration = external PEEP + auto (or intrinsic) PEEP, if any. Auto PEEP = PEEP total – P extrinsic (PEEP dialed in the ventilator) adds to the inspiratory pressure one needs to generate a tidal breath.

  20. Work of Breathing • WOB is a major source of caloric expenditure and oxygen consumption • Appr. 70% to overcome elastic forces, 30% flow-resistive work • Patient work is a one of the most sensitive indicator of ventilator dependency • Comparison of Ventilator and Patient work is a useful indicator during weaning process • WOB may be altered by changes in compliance, resistance, patient effort, level of support, PEEP, improper Ti, demand system sensitivity, mode setting • Elevated WOB may contraindicate the weaning process

  22. Work of Breathing Measurements WOB =∫0ti P x Vdt • Paw: Ventilator Work: The physical force required to move gas into the lung, represents the total work of the resp. system (patient + ventilator) • Peso: Patient Work: done by respiratory muscles, represents the pulmonary work of breathing • Paw-Ptr: Imposed Work by the Endotracheal tube

  23. P-V Loop and WOB V Normal Compliance Increased Resistance Decreased Compliance Normal Resistance P V Normal Compliance Normal Resistance V P P

  24. Work of Breathing • Work per breath is depicted as a pressure-volume area • Work per breath (Wbreath)= P x tidal volume(VT) • Wmin = wbreath x respiratory rate WEL = elastic work WR = resistive work Volume Volume Volume VT Pressure Pressure Pressure The total work of breathing can be partitioned between an elastic and resistive work. By analogy, the pressure needed to inflate a balloon through a straw varies; one needs to overcome the resistance of the straw and the elasticity of the balloon.

  25. Intrinsic PEEP and Work of Breathing When present, intrinsic PEEP contributes to the work of breaking and can be offset by applying external PEEP. Volume VT VT Dynamic Hyperinflation FRC Pressure PEEPi PEEPi = intrinsic or auto PEEP; green triangle = tidal elastic work; red loop = flow resistive work; blue rectangle = work expended in offsetting intrinsic PEEP (an expiratory driver) during inflation

  26. The Pressure and Work of Breathing can be Entirely Provided by the Ventilator (Passive Patient) Ventilator + + ₊ + + ₊

  27. The Work of Breathing can be Shared Between the Ventilator and the Patient The ventilator generates positive pressure within the airway and the patient’s inspiratory muscles generate negative pressure in the pleural space. AC mode PAW patient machine PES time Paw = Airway pressure, Pes= esophageal pressure

  28. Work of breath Resistive Work Elastic Work of Lung Pressure Elastic Work of Chest Paw Pes Work to inflate the chest wall Inflation Deflation Volume

  29. Relationship Between the Set Pressure Support Level and the Patient’s Breathing Effort The changes in Pes (esophageal pressure) and in the diaphragmatic activity (EMG) associated with the increase in the level of mask pressure (Pmask = pressure support) indicate transfer of the work of breathing from the patient to the ventilator. Carrey et al. Chest. 1990;97:150.

  30. Partitioning of the Workload Between the Ventilator and the Patient • How the work of breathing partitions between the patient and the ventilator • depends on: • Mode of ventilation (e.g., in assist control most of the work is usually done by the ventilator) • Patient effort and synchrony with the mode of ventilation • Specific settings of a given mode (e.g., level of pressure in PS and set rate in SIMV)

  31. Respiratory Mechanics in ARF* • Reduced range of volume excursion: Low compliance • Flattering at low and high volumes: Lower and upper inflection points *Bigatello: Br J Anaest 1996 Volume NORMAL ARDS Pressure

  32. Lung Protective Strategy • Set PEEP above the lower Pflex to keep the lung open and avoid alveolar collapse • Apply small Vt to minimize stretching forces • Set Pplat below the upper Pflex to avoid regional overdistension Volume Pressure

  33. Abnormalities • Air-leak • Air trapping • Increased airway resistance • Inadequate flow support • Inadequate sensitivity • Atelectasis • Inadequate PEEP • Airway obstruction • Over-distension

  48. Overdistension • Overdistension occurs when the volume limit of some components of the lung has been exceeded • Abrupt decrease in compliance at the termination of inspiration • Results in a terminal “Beaking” of the P/V Loop Volume Pressure
