When placing a 70 kg adult patient on a mechanical ventilator for acute respiratory failure, which of the following is not a correct parameter?
Select Your Answer:
The tidal volume should be based on weight. 6 to 8 ml/kg is recommended. The goal is to adjust the tidal volume so that plateau pressures are less than 30 cm H20.
Positive end-expiratory pressure (PEEP) of 3 to 5 cm H20 is common to prevent a decrease in the functional residual capacity.
High respiratory rates allow less time for exhalation and cause air trapping in individuals with a chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
Use of inverse I:E may be appropriate in patients with acute respiratory distress syndrome.
