Over the last 15 years, healthcare professionals have achieved a much better understanding of asynchrony and how it affects patient outcomes. Asynchrony can be best defined as a discordance temporal relationship between the mechanical ventilator and the patient’s own breathing. That is, the mechanical ventilator and the patients are not functioning in a cooperative manner. The ability of a patient to easily interact with the mechanical ventilator is greatly dependent on the amount of control exerted by the ventilator. For example, in volume ventilation tidal volume, inspiratory time and flow are controlled. By contrast, with pressure support, only the pressure is controlled. Consequently, asynchrony is much more common in volume ventilation compared to pressure support. Specific asynchronies have been generally grouped into 4 categories: flow asynchrony, where the mechanical ventilator does not meet the patients inspiratory demand; triggering asynchrony, where there is a discordance relationship between the patient’s initiation of inspiration and the response of the ventilator; cycle asynchrony where the termination of a breath by the ventilator does not correspond to the termination of the breath by the patient; and mode asynchrony, where the specific mode is simply not tolerated by the patient. These and other topics will be discussed in detail during the webcast.
Upon completion of this Webinar the attendee will be able to:
- Discuss the effects of mode of ventilation on the likelihood of developing asynchronies.
- Discuss the various categories of asynchronies and the circumstances under which they occur.
- Discuss the impact of the various types of asynchronies on patient outcome.
This webcast is approved by the American Association for Respiratory Care (AARC) for one contact hour of CRCE credit.
