References & Resources for Understanding Modes of Mechanical Ventilation: A New Taxonomy

Rob Chatburn & Amanda Dexter’s  “Understanding Modes of Mechanical Ventilation: A New Taxonomy” is a tool to develop the ability to identify, classify, compare, and effectively use all modes of ventilation.

The concepts covered in this RespiSim module have been adopted by leading general respiratory care textbooks and has passed peer reviews in medical journals. Click here to learn more about Understanding Modes of Mechanical Ventilation: A New Taxonomy.
