It is less invasive so less accurate. It is used to determine how effective the heart is meeting the demands of their body. it can be obstructed. Technique is to inject 5-10 mL of D5IV or NS to Pulmonary Catheter.5.

Criteria of in monitoring ICP:  Risk for increased ICP. Acetazolamide – Drug used to inhibit CSF Secretion. Most accurate and CSF can be drained.

Helps to keep alveoli open to participate in gas exchange. SIMV – ventilator will deliver a preset Tidal Volume or pressure for every breath. Pressure Control Ventilation – delivers breaths at a preset target pressure. This determined by patient weight range from 4-12 ml/kg c. Give anxiolytics and paralytic Agent 2. Hyperoxygenate patient to 100% 3. When patient inspires independently. d. CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure) – adds to FRC in patient with spontaneous breathing given by mask or ventilator. 6. Inflate cuff with Syringe. the ventilator does not deliver pressure/volume which may result to respiratory muscle fatigue. Positive Pressure Ventilation – common type of ventilator support use in ICU. PEEP (Positive End Expiratory Pressure) – it adds pressure at the end of expiration on ventilation breaths. 8. Secure ETT by tape and document cm marking for the depth at the patient lip. This is used for weaning. 9. Use to augment spontaneous breath during weaning process. CMV – deliver a minimum preset RR to the patient. Volume Control Ventilation – solves this volume gas exchange roblem. b.Steps in Endotracheal Intubation: 1. Place patient in sniffing position. Used to patient with sleep apnea. Example: If the order is 12 breaths/min. the ventilator will deliver 12 breaths. There is always a risk that the inspiration pressure will climb high. let RT auscultate bilateral lung air entry. d. Suction excess secretions in the oropharynx 5. c. This is titrated according to patient pulse oximeter. 3 . Inspiration decreases as the alveolar pressure nears the pressure on the airways. Air is forced into the lungs via ETT and deliver air according to preset volume/pressure by mode. FIO2 (Fraction of Inspired Oxygen) – this is the preset. FIO2 maybe set to 21-100%. Give PEEP 5cm H2O routine to keep functional residual capacity. Insert ETT thru the vocal cords just 2-3cm above the carina 7. Insert Laryngoscope to view vocal cord 4. Breath is delivered according to the timing of patient own respiratory effort. 10. b. Use to patients with chronic respiratory problems. Tidal Volume – amount of air exchanged or delivered with each inspiration and expiration. Different Ventilator Settings: a. Lubricate ETT with KY Jelly and place stylet on the center of the ETT. Once done. Chest X-Ray to verify proper alignment. a.

e. Proportional Assist Ventilation – this allows the ventilator to act in response to the patient work of breathing on breath by breath basis. Suction as needed. Used as Weaning. Monitor ABG and adjust ventilator setting. 3. Provide oral care every 2 hours. Give bronchodilators. 9. 15. Apply soft restraint if needed. Monitor patient volume status. 2. Healing Process:  Inflammatory process – formed – 4 hours. Mandatory Minute Ventilation – this monitors the minute ventilation and deliver additional breaths when patient falls below the minimum. 6. Nursing Management: 1. Pressure Support Ventilation – used to support patient breath and help increase Tidal Volume. Turn patient every 2hours. Patient requires sedation or paralysis because patient feels uncomfortable. Monitor ETT pressure once per shift. Secure artificial airway and monitor tube movement. Signs and Symptoms:  Chest pain – last 30 minutes.  Necrotic zone – 4-10 days – it is well defined. Provides positive pressure as patient is taking breath that ultimately helps to reduce work of breathing. g. 14. Position patent semi-fowlers if possible. Wash hands before and after procedures. Acute Myocardial Infarction – totally occluded of a coronary artery which leads to shock or death. Monitor ETT and ventilator circuits turning and repositioning patient. Inverse Ration Ventilation – Delivered as pressure controlled. The ventilator adjust the support it provides depending on patient effort. Review and respond to ventilator alarms promptly. f. Hyperoxygenate before. 7. Auscultate lung every 4hours. 5. during and after procedure. h.  Anxiety – because of impending doom 4 . If orally intubated secure tube alternating sides of mouth daily. 11. Comparison of the inspiration and expiratory time. Monitor set and titrate FIO2 8. Airway Pressure Release Ventilation – unites two levels of CPAP (P high – help patient increase lung volume during spontaneous breath) and P low – allows reduction of airway pressure. 4. 10. 13.  Scar tissue – Forms within 10-14 days. i. 12.
