PV loop icon

A Pressure-Volume curve can be a volume-driven or pressure-driven manoeuvre that inflates and deflates the lungs in a controlled stepwise manner. The stepwise process allows for the lungs to achieve equilibrium at each plateau, providing an evaluation of lung elasticity and compliance under quasi-static conditions


The document provides extensive information regarding:

  • an overview of the pressure-volume loop
  • a description of pressure-driven and volume-driven manoeuver
  • troubleshooting leaks between subject and flexiVent, subject impassivity, and module size issues
