Release Volumes in APRV with TCAV Method

When using the Habashi technique of Time Controlled Adaptive Ventilation (TCAV) method in the APRV mode, the release phase occurs when expiratory gas flows through the artificial airway creating a slope angle with the deceleration of gas flow. The resultant slope angle reflects the elastance of the respiratory system and provides real-time assessment of lung mechanics...
