    Parameter Monitoring and Alarms

    Critical Parameters

    1. Tidal Volume (TV) (air volume pushed into lung): between 200 – 500 mL based on patient weight.
    2. Respiratory Rate (RR) (breaths per minute): between 8 – 30.
    3. I/E Ratio (inspiratory/expiration time ratio): recommended to start around 1:1, 1:2, 1:3, 1:4, 2:1, 3:1 and 4:1
    *Range determined based on several COVID-19 patients’ ventilator settings reported from Boston area ICU

     

     

    Airway pressure must be monitored

    1. PIP - (Pick inspiratory pressure) - 15 to 40(cmH2O) 
    2. PLATEAU - 15 to 40(cmH2O) 
    3. PEEP - (Positive End-Expiratory Pressure) - 5 to 20) cmH2O
