PURPOSE: To study The effects of condensate in the piezometric tube on Patient ventilator interaction during Noninvasive positive pressure ventilation.
METHODS: Six healthy adults received non-invasive positive pressure ventilation. Different capacity of physiological saline was injected gradually into the piezometric tube. The dynamic changes of the pressure of mask (Pmask), piezometric tube near mask (Ppro), piezometric tube near breathing machine (Pdis), and the flow were observed.
