Paucis Verbis: Ventilator settings for obstructive lung disease

Ventilator

Following up with last week’s Paucis Verbis card on Ventilator Settings for Acute Lung Injury and ARDS, here is the card on Ventilator Settings for Obstructive Lung Disease. This is for patients who present with acute asthma or COPD exacerbation who require endotracheal intubation.

Thanks to Dr. Jenny Wilson for the card and Dr. Scott Weingart for the original stellar podcast from which this card was derived.
