    Basic Modes of Mechanical Ventilation Infographic



    Mechanical ventilation is a complex topic to understand. With this infographic, I have tried to explain 4 most commonly used ventilator modes in intensive care units. The two broad categories are the volume limited and pressure limited ventilation while each of them have further sub-branches. In future posts, I'm going to create a basic flowchart of all ventilator modes with their benefits and disadvantages. Till then, use this infographic to understand the basic of mechanical ventilation and how pressure, flow and volumes are linked to each other.
