Comparison of 3 modes of automated weaning from mechanical ventilation: A bench study

Journal of Critical Care, 04/13/2012

Smartcare, adaptive support ventilation (ASV)and mandatory rate ventilation (MRV) were equally able to recognize weaning success and failure, despite the presence of anxiety or irregular breathing but performed incorrectly in the presence of Cheyne–Stokes. PS behavior over the time differs among modes, with ASV showing larger and more frequent PS oscillations over the time.
