Volume Control Ventilation
Delivers the tidal volume you set, regardless of changes in the fresh gas flow , circuit compliance, airway pressure, up to the selected pressure limit. The 7900 SmartVent™ provides a full spectrum of tidal volume settings from 20mL to 1500mL to accommodate a wide range of patients, with a respiratory rate range of 4 to 100 bpm. A typical volume-control pressure waveform is shark fin shaped, increasing throughout the entire inspiratory period, and rapidly decreasing at the start of expiration. An inspiratory pause is available to improve gas distribution. Watch the Volume Control video here.
