Access e-learning resources about mechanical ventilation and ventilators. Our e-learning modules are designed for current and future users of Hamilton Medical ventilators, and teach the most commonly used features and functions. Every user is required to register in order to manage the learning modules and obtain the certificates.
In the presence of dynamic pulmonary hyperinflation, the average end-expiratory pressure inside the alveoli (i.e., the actual, total PEEP (PEEPtot)) is higher than the PEEP applied by the ventilator (PEEPe). The difference between PEEPtot and PEEPe corresponds with the intrinsic PEEP (PEEPi), and is also known as AutoPEEP (1).
Our Clinical Applications Team is happy to hear any suggestions you might have for additional training topics.
