How to prevent intubation

Often NIV is possible before intubation may be required. Potential complications of mask ventilation can be avoided, and the length of stay and mortality may decrease in the ICU.

Prevent intubation as first step of the Respiration Pathway

Prevent-Intubation-3-2.JPG

Prevent intubation as long as possible because ...

  • patients with mechanically-assisted ventilation could develop ventilator-associated-pneumonia (VAP)
  • patients with VAP could have a significantly longer ICU and hospital length of stay
  • the treatment of VAP may account for almost half of all antibiotics administered in ICUs

The optimal gas exchange

Pulmonary-Gas-Exchange-Graphic-3-2.JPG

This model illustrates the function of the ventilation pump, the ideal condition and two extreme examples of pulmonary gas exchange. In the ideal condition, ventilation and circulation of the alveoli are optimal while the ventilation/perfusion ratio V./Q is 0.8.
