PV (Slow Inflation) Maneuver
The PV maneuver is a slow inflation / deflation maneuver that can be used to determine optimal PEEP or as a single breath recruitment tool.
The user can set maneuver parameters including start and end peep, equilibrium time, inflation and deflation rate and pause time.
When the settings are adjusted, the maneuver expected graph is updated to show how the maneuver will operate.
When active, the status of the maneuver is shown on the graph in real time.
During the maneuver, the PV loop is generated. When the maneuver completes, the loop is auto-scaled and the Inflection points can be analyzed and marked.
