Definition

Mechanical (or artificial) ventilation is intended to completly or partially replace absent or inffective ventillation.

There are two modalities: invasive ventilation and non-invasive ventilation.

1. Invasive Ventilation (VI)

Invasive Ventilation (IV) is used if ventilation uses a mouth-penetrating instrument (such as an endotracheal tube), nose or skin (such as a tracheostomy tube through an incision in the trachea), as an airway artificial.

2. Non-Invasive Ventilation (NIV)

As for the non-invasive ventilation (NIV), it includes all ventilatory support techniques delivering ventilatory support in the form of positive pressure, without tracheal intubation or tracheotomy.

Indications

Mechanical ventilation is indicated in the following cases:

– General anaesthesia

– Comas with depression of the respiratory centres (toxic, metabolic, neurological …)

– Neuromuscular disorders (myopathy, NRP …)

– Curarization

– Fatigue of the respiratory muscles

– Broncho obstructive pneumopathies

 

– Restrictive syndromes

 

– Acute pneumopathies

 

– ARDS

Objectives

N

Ensure satisfactory oxygenation

N

Ensure sufficient CO2 removal and acceptable pH

N

Decrease the work of the respiratory muscles (to avoid exhaustion)
