    withdraw the tube to the correct position.
  3. what size catheter should you use with a 6 french tube?
    12 catheter

    (diameter of the tube multiply by 2) suction catheter
  4. if a patient is on a vt of 800 and every breath their exhaled vt is 1000, what do you think the value is that your going to use

    use actual patient
  5. blood gas for ventilation:
  6. blood gas for oxygenation:
  7. what do u want to adjust with a patient that has infractory hypoxemia
  8. 1:2 to 1:4 what would you do to the flow?
    increase flow to increase expiratory time
  9. 1:2 to 1:4 what would you do to the itime?
    decrease the itime
  10. if the itime is 1:1.2 and i gotta get it to 1:1.3, what do you want to change?
    increase flow
  11. if pt comes to the icu and not sure with the position about their tube. u hear bs on both side and want to be sure, what do u want to do?
    chest x-ray
  12. what mode of ventilation would i use if i want to make sure that the volume was delivered at the lowest possible airway pressure
    PRVC - pressure regulated volume controlled
  13. where do u set the apnea interval on the p840
    apnea set up
  14. in pressure control mode of ventilation, if i want to increase volume, what do u want to do?
    increase pressure to increase volume
  15. 2 different ways u can measure the PPL
    • ins hold
    • 1 sec TPL (plateau time)
  16. what kind of nebulizer is a aero-neb
  17. what phase of the resp cycle does peep remains in the circuit
    end expiratory
  18. if the only thing you can touch is the itime button how would u effectively increase flow rate
    decrease itime
  19. use corrected vt if given, however, if u are given a bunch of settings and given a set vt and a actual vt what do you use?
  20. if u are given a set peep and a instrinsic peep, what do you use
