Additional uses include the identification of ventilator modes, graphic detection of the presence of auto-PEEP, evaluation of compliance and resistance, improved accuracy in the measurement of hemodynamic values, and assessment of breakthrough respiratory efforts when chemical muscle relaxants are being used. These applications are described in the protocol. As noted previously, respiratory waveform graphics are commonly integrated into new ventilator systems and are provided via a screen mounted on top of the ventilator.

Knowing the difference between volume and pressure ventilation is important so that the differences in waveforms can be understood and accurately interpreted. Competency verification depends on how the waveforms are used clinically and on the policies of individual institutions and critical care units. For example, if a pressure-time waveform is required to be graphed simultaneously with a pulmonary artery (PA) tracing in order to document endexpiration, the competency may be verified in conjunction 35 with verification of competencies in measuring PA pressures.

Key Results Bipolar precordial leads MCL1 and MCL6 were valid substitutes for unipolar leads V1 and V6. The MCL1 and V1 leads were superior to the MCL6 and V6 leads for correct diagnosis of the origin of wide QRS complexes. The QRS morphology in leads MCL1 and V1 was clearly different in 9% of wide QRS beats (this did not affect diagnostic accuracy). The new criterion, measuring from onset of QRS to tallest peak or nadir in V6 or MCL6, showed that a measurement of 50 milliseconds or less favors a supraventricular origin, whereas a measurement of 70 milliseconds or more favors a ventricular origin.
