Adaptive Servoventilation Versus Continuous Positive Airway Pressure
|Course Name||Adaptive Servoventilation Versus Continuous Positive Airway Pressure|
Upon successful completion of this module, you will be able to:
- List the advantages of Adaptive-Servo Ventilation.
- Compare the benefits patients receive with CSA-CSR treatment with ASV those received with CPAP.
- Describe the connections between sleep studies, daytime sleepiness, respiratory function, and cardiovascular assessment.
Course InformationWith its advanced Adaptive-Servo Ventilation (ASV) algorithm, the ResMed VPAP Adapt SV provides ventilatory support to rapidly treat all forms of central sleep apnea (CSA), mixed apnea and periodic breathing, commonly known as Cheyne-Stokes respiration (CSR).
To determine the degree of pressure support needed, the ASV algorithm continuously calculates a target ventilation. Based on respiratory rate and tidal volume, the target is 90% of the patient’s recent average ventilation—that means that ventilation can vary gradually and naturally over the course of the night.
