In this segment, viewers will learn about personalized ventilation, an innovative way of providing ventilatory support to critically ill patients in the intensive care unit (ICU) who are unable to breathe on their own. Personalized ventilation consists of a bedside diagnostic tool that helps healthcare professionals monitor diaphragm activity on the ventilator screen and a mode of mechanical ventilation, called NAVA® (Neurally Adjusted Ventilatory Assist), that uses the patient’s own respiratory drive to control the level and timing of respiratory support provided by the ventilator.
