Ventilator Settings

The ventilator should be put to pressure control mode, with a PIP (peak inspiratory pressure) set to the pressure needed for the lowest compliance in the circuit, meaning the highest PIP needed amongst all connected patients.

Individual, effective PEEP is the sum of ventilator PEEP and PEEP set on the individual PEEP valves. See information on in-line PEEP valves.
