New study: ASV versus SIMV in surgery patients


The latest version of our ASV bibliography presents the summary of the randomized controlled trial with 20 patients in fast-track surgery carried out by a team of the Sapienza University Hospital in Rome, Italy.

The aim of this study was to compare the adaptive support ventilation (ASV) mode with the standard mode of weaning in the intensive care unit, synchronized intermittent mandatory ventilation with pressure support (P-SIMV), in patients who received orthotopic liver transplantation. The results of the study suppose that ASV is superior in terms of weaning times, and it simplifies respiratory management.
