Ventilator-assisted preoxygenation: Protocol for combining non-invasive ventilation and apnoeic oxygenation using a portable ventilator (DOI: 10.1111/1742-6723.12524)(Grant et al. 2016)*

From EMCrit.com : Ventilator assisted preox protocol

  • Respiratory rate of 6–8 breaths per minute
  • Pressure support 0 cm water (I never bothered unless pt had severe acidosis–the authors used PS of 10)
  • Positive end expiratory pressure starting at 5 cm water (titrate up to 15 if not getting sats > 95% in preox)
  • Fraction inspired oxygen 1.0
  • Vt 550 ml
  • Inspiratory Flow (30 rpm)
