Besides the ET tube, the ventilator circuit may also impose mechanical resistance to airflow and contribute to total airway resistance. This is particularly important when there is a significant amount of water in the ventilator circuit due to condensation. Chapter 4 describes the use of pressure support ventilation (PSV) to compensate for the effects of airflow resistance and to augment spontaneous tidal volume during mechanical ventilation. Airway Resistance and the Work of Breathing (∆P) Airway resistance is calculated by ➞ Airway resistance 5 Work of breathing.
