L] because patients were ventilated on pressure support ventilation, pressure control ventilation or synchronised intermittent mandatory ventilation autoflow and that is what the ventilator calculates in these modes.
Physiological response to pressure support ventilation delivered before and after extubation in patients not capable of totally spontaneous autonomous breathing.
Depending on the amount of pressure support, pressure support ventilation (PSV) is a partial ventilator support mode (Tobin, 2006).

While technological advancements have resulted in innovations like Pressure Support Ventilation Systems, Electroencephalogram, Piston Ventilator System, application of low-flow anesthesia, sensor integration, and flow measurement data; increase in patient population has resulted in demand for better medical facilities and affordable cure.
The majority of participants (91/164, 55%) reported their preferred method of weaning was pressure support ventilation, defined as the gradual reduction of PS or a period of fixed low level of PS (Figure 3).
